Gallup: R 49%, 0 47%

Keep in mind again that this is a 7 day poll. That means that Romney's two biggest post debate polling nights (the Friday and Saturday following the Wednesday debate) have now rolled off Gallup's 7 day average.
It also includes weekend polling, which always favors Dems. But, up +2 still. And up +2 in Rasmussen, as well. Steady as she goes Captain. Full speed ahead.
I guess Gallup can’t cover up their false numbers any longer regardless of threats from the White House.
You see this every presidential election. The polls break in one direction or another in mid October, and they stay broken.
Gee there is that 47 percent number again..I tell ya that Mitt Romney is quite the wiz with numbers
The Iowa Electronic Markets are making me nervous. I don’t think they have ever been wrong:
Winner Take All shares are Obama 61% and Romney 36%.
with or without fraud?
They really tried. They increased minorities to 32% (hint: 2008 was 25% minority votes) and cell phones to 50%. Still didn’t give them what they wanted. Awwww...poor babies.
That’s all? Given how Obama and the Communists have screwed over any economic recovery ...
You mentioned Iowa, and then the winner take all shares.
Do the quotes only apply to Iowa, or to the whole shootin’ match?
If it’s the whole shootin’ match, I don’t think that’s very accurate.
Things are way too close to support those kind of lop-sided figures.
So Romney is up about 6-7 points if the sample is realistic.
I guess Gallup cant cover up their false numbers any longer regardless of threats from the White House.
How can Obama possibly come back?
He’s got two more debates, which by tradition allow no outside sources - i.e., teleprompters - so he’ll be lost in space again, twice.
How’s he gonna win back voters??
I won’t declare victory until after this next debate though. There is still a chance there might be a big shift after this next debate either way. However, I will say, I highly doubt that will happen.
And ultimately, I don’t see the last debate changing much, so the pattern after this debate will probably continue until the election.

Romney needs to play his responses in this “debate” to the swing states. There will be nothing new coming out of the Marxist’s mouth. At this point, the Marxist campaign has no more bullets. If they did we would have seen it over the past week. They have watched the polls swing to Romney and essentially had no response.
I agree. The third debate will be on foreign policy, expect low ratings for that. It will be of interest only to policy wonks. The swing state soccer moms will sleep right through it.
So the second debate will be the last big chance to change momentum, short of an October surprise.
This will be a tougher format for Romney, because there is less back and forth in townhall. It will allow Obama to get in more sound bite demagogic attacks without sufficient opportunity for rebuttal.
Thanks for the link.
If Obama pulls this off, I’ll be shocked.
I wonder how much campaign money goes into this pool. That can be funneled by individuals too.
I know. Obama has fallen on the graph, but there’s still a 26 point difference between Obama and Romney. Am I reading this wrong??
