The trend is our friend. I think this may also include the after effects of the VP debate. But that may take another day or two to materialize in the polls.

If Romney cracks 50% at any point, it’s over.

I think once Romney cracks 50% he’ll be at 51, 52 or more shortly after. And as that happens, days keep counting off the calendar. Only 3 weeks left!

We’re starting to settle in.

Obama is trying to keep Libya in a simmering pot with a lid over it, but the lid is starting to bounce and the steam is escaping. The pot lid may fly off and the contents may boil out at any time. They can’t keep it contained for three more weeks.

Desperate people are going to start to do desperate things to extricate themselves from blame.

Check this out:

Direct link to Col. Hunt interview:

http://d24edc7kaf4agn.cloudfront.net/3650/rhiDownloadVariant/10-12-col-hunt.mp3?rhihttphost=audio.wrko.com

Col. David Hunt explains how at least 12 command centers got near INSTANTANEOUS info when the Benghazi consulate was attacked, including a manned WH situation room. Hundreds of government personnel listened/watched for 6 hours in real time as the attack ensued. Hunt says it is standard operating procedure when an embassy is attacked.

WH gave no military order to intervene.

They knew almost immediately that there was NO protest, NO mob-— just a surgical jihad operation viewed instantaneously in real time by governmental operations centers all over the world, including CIA, Dept of State and WH situation room, for over 6 hours (from 3:30-9:30 PM).

In short, everyone knew, almost immediately, what happened in Benghazi was an act of war.

Polling gets easier for Rassmussen each day. He no longer needs to guage the Democrat side. No matter what answers he gets he always rounds it to 47%.

He should add an asterisk to that and say, "See Romney quote."

Rasmussen this morning has Romney +2 in Virginia and +4 in Florida. Obama is +1 in Ohio.

Momentum on our side. 2 of the 3 rolling days are post-Ryan-Biden debate. Clearly, Biden did not help Obama. He might have hurt him.

While Obama “studying” for the debate on Tuesday, R&R in Ohio blasting away. This unobstructed campaigning may deliver an OH lead shortly.

Given that this is a weekend poll, Romney may already be over 50% now.

Another notable from today’s Ras: Marxist approval fell to 48%. It’s shaping up to be a 51-48 (1% other) victory for Romney as long as he holds his own over the next 10 days (2 debates). And we can’t discount a 1-2% Bradley effect that brings it to around 52-47.

The only remaining (and likely) “October surprise” will be the last (totally corrupt) unemployment report predictably falling to the 7.5-7.7% range.

This has made sense all along. Nothing in the last three months has changed a single mind among the voters.

The only things the Democrats' continuous display of idiocy has accomplished is make it so people can feel good about publically saying, "I'm not voting for those clowns."

Obama and Biden have also told the pollsters, "You don't need to run interference for us through October. Tell it like it is, but give us that 47% so we can save a little face."

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.

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.

Yes, we CAN discount that. 2008 showed us that was bunk, or old hat at best.

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.

Very good.

I still cannot understand why the clown continues at 65-70% on Intrade compared to Romney's sickly range of 30-35%. Something is not right with the polls and the gamblers. IMHO THE CLOWN GETS ANOTHER FOUR - Remember this old saying....

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years.

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.

When the clown's campaign announced they were ignoring the white working class, it became very clear he was going after the moron vote and the victim class voters.

Somebody also called up a drone when it started. I think it was overhead an hour after the attack began.

Swing State Tracking: Romney 49%, Obama 47%

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/obama_administration/daily_swing_state_tracking_poll

“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”

Romney could knock out this POS communist obama in the next debate. Just mention Obama has piled on 6 trillion $ in debt on the American people which will result in a debt crisis as in Greece, economic collapse and make all that we worked for worthless.

I think there may be a combo effect. Those that were happy to show They Weren’t Racist by voting in Zero in ‘08 are kind of embarrassed to admit that their black president has failed and they aren’t voting for him. I do believe a number of “undecided” voters are not being honest, and I doubt any will vote for Obama.

They are covering up the CIA involvement in the consulate.

If those two SEALs were “contractors?” What were they doing.

My guess is that the Ambassador was there for a “meeting” and the muzzles targeted him. The rest of the guys just happened to be working next door.

So, in order to come clean, someone needs to explain why all of these guys were there. And that ain’t gonna happen.

This is Gary Powers, 21st Century style.

Two spooks and a bodyguard? Agreed. I think the MB was supposed to “kidnap” Smith but he accidentally got himself expired by staying in a smoke filled “safe” house until dying of smoke inahlation. The October Surprise backfired...just like Carter.
