ah nevermind, I see Rasmussen has Obama up one, it’s Gravis polling that has Romney up in Ohio.
Obama approval at 48/51. That is down From 50/49 yesterday. That was my only issue I had with Rasmussen as he had Obama approval at 50+ the past few days. It is now more in line with the Romney 49/47 lead.
Yep, the approval rating is really a much better indicator for where this thing is heading. The Obama commie ship is sinking like the Titanic.
One of the worst things for Obama in this is the release of the movie Argo this weekend. This is one of the best movies I have seen in long time. The similarities between the Iranian take-over of the US Embassy and the Libyan ambassador's brutal execution do not make Obama look good. Instead, it only heigtens the parallels between him and Jimmy Carter, arguably the worst President in history (until Obama, that is). And even Carter came off as more forceful and resolute than does Obama.
“And we cant discount a 1-2% Bradley effect that brings it to around 52-47.”
Yes, we CAN discount that. 2008 showed us that was bunk, or old hat at best.
What about Ohio? Why is Obama ahead of Romney? It just doesn’t add up. And don’t we need Ohio?
What is the sampling of D/R/Is? If this is a Sunday poll, then I assume that a lot more Rs are in church than Ds. Just a thought.
I like this!
I would not call the undersampling the “Bradley Effect” it is too much like the “Shy Torry” effect. There are many voters that I have polled in person, door to door, who are very reticent to say they want to fire the first black president for doing a bad job. The first debate gave many voters “permission.” The media has not been kind to those willing to pull the plug on Obama’s presidency and it has not gone, unnoticed.
I want to see LS’s early voting Ohio numbers by party affiliation, requested ballots, to see what that looks like. Haven’t seen them since Th. or Fri. Hopefully he will post soon.
well Romney was correct regarding the clueless 47% that’s for damn sure!
Somebody also called up a drone when it started. I think it was overhead an hour after the attack began.
Everyone knew what was going on.
just curious how accurate is Gravis?
Swing State Tracking: Romney 49%, Obama 47%
“In the 11 swing states, Mitt Romney earns 49% support to Obama’s 47%. One percent (1%) likes another candidate in the race, and two percent (2%) are undecided.
This is the sixth day in a row Romney has led the daily Swing State Survey”
Intrade has you convinced? Really?
I think approval is polled with “adults” (meaning those who answer their cells and say they are adults).
