Platinum Members have access to detailed demographic information.
In the 11 swing states, Mitt Romney and President Obama are now tied with 48% support each. One percent (1%) likes another candidate in the race, and two percent (2%) are undecided.
Romney has led the daily Swing State Survey for the previous six days, reflecting the modest bounce he earned from the first presidential debate. Prior to that, the president had led for 17 of the previous 19 days, and the candidates had been tied twice. Most of these findings still are based on responses prior to Thursday nights vice presidential debate.

why does the weekend always help democrats?
they have to keep swing state polls close so Obama can steal the states.
I can’t understand how The One is still in this race - how it could be this close...
The only explanation - The media’s help must be worth several points.
The polls are nonsense. It is going Romney all the way in a big way.
Possibly because people have more time to watch TV, i.e. more DNC propaganda.
The 0bama regime’s calling of the Ft. Hood terrorist attack ‘WORKPLACE VIOLENCE’ alone should destroy any chances of 0bama getting re-elected. WTF is wrong with people!!!
Nobody is going to steal anything. Work instead of predicting theft and there will be no theft.
I think it’s significant that while Romney has gained, sometimes big, Zero just can’t get above that 47-48 plateau, and I have a feeling this one is MOE and really has Obama at 47.
Ft. Hood = workplace violence
Benghazi = protest over a movie
LIVING WILL FORM:
I, _____________________________, being of sound mind and body, do not wish to be kept alive indefinitely by artificial means. Under no circumstances should my fate be put in the hands of pinhead partisan politicians who couldn’t pass ninth-grade biology if their lives depended on it, or lawyers/doctors/hospitals interested in simply running up the bills.
If, after a reasonable amount of time passes, and I fail to ask for:
(Check appropriate items) ______a Martini ______a Margarita ____ a Weller and Diet Coke______a Bloody Mary, a micro beer ______a Gin and Tonic _______a Glass of Chardonnay or a good Napa Valley Red ______a Steak ______Lobster or crab legs ______the TV remote control ______a bowl of ice cream ______the sports page______ Sex or______ Chocolate:
If it should be presumed that I won’t ever get any better and when such a determination is reached, I hereby instruct my appointed person and attending physicians to pull the plug, reel in the tubes, and call it a day.
At this point, it will be time to call the New Orleans Jazz Funeral Band to come and do their thing at my funeral, and ask all of my friends to raise their glasses to toast the good times we have had.

*P.S............... I hear that in Ireland there is a Nursing Home with a Pub. The patients are happier, and they have a lot more visitors. Some of them don’t even need embalming when their time comes. If anyone knows the name of this happy place, PLEASE pass it on.
Should I become incapacitated as described above, DO NOT PULL THE PLUG until after I have voted against Barack Obama by absentee ballot in the November 2012 election. Thanks in advance.

I don't put ANYTHING past these thugs. This has been my fear all along. There's no way this fool could be up anywhere with his dismal record, yet, the polls have him neck and neck?? It's their cover for when they try and steal this.
I think his polling is to play it safe and because of it, it will be wrong by a few more points.
I agree; I don’t see how 48% of Americans anywhere could possibly vote for this guy. Well, four years ago 53% did, but he was running against a picture of a dead dog.
Still, should 0bama get re-elected, I am not really angry with him. I am most angry first at the American people who are stupid enough to vote for him, and second at the Pravda/Tass propaganda organs of the democrat party who lie to us and call it “news” to fool the stupid among us.
They always try. It didn’t work in 04, or 2010. We have lots of poll watchers and lawyers in OH.
The answer is that on weekends Republicans tend to not be home; out of the house doing things. Its been that way for a long time.
A newer type of the "Enthusiastic pessimist" Tiggers, lots of them here on FR, usually inhabiting the poll threads
there are many idiot democrats that like obama..my cousins sister in law for one. they want socialism..
Interestingly, Race42012.com addressed this today and the data seems to indicate that it only seems that way:
Most of these numbers are BEFORE Biden showed his ass on Thursday night.
The fact that only 9% of the people will even talk to pollsters explains a lot about these polls.
Who do you think is more likely to talk to a pollster, a conservative who hates the media and considers it an enemy or the lib who knows that it is totally on his side and sabotages conservatives every chance it gets?
Yep...I don’t believe these polls, I just don’t trust the thugs.
I don’t understand how Obama was ever elected in the first place, proving how out of step with the New Amerikkka I am.
He tried to act a moderate, that’s why.
I will bet my cat he won’t gain on that. If you are still “undecided” on Zero (and where are all the “When will O close the deal?” articles anyway? No big for an incumbent to be below 50% this time?) you will not suddenly decide he’s electable in three weeks.
Remember, most Obama voters voted for an enigma, first unvetted president in the modern era. Now they are learning what he is. I think a notable percentage of white 0 voters don’t have the heart to vote Politically Correct again, and they are too embarrassed to say they aren’t voting at all, so they are “undecided.”
