heading in the right direction....
If you know without looking, what’s the ‘rat sample?
Mrs. Obama quoted as saying, “I can’t get more angry.”
It their LV model and I don’t know what it is.
It’s interesting that even their RV model has Romney up 2 now.
The article at the link says 50 - 46?
That’s yesterday’s number. Go to the column on the right of the page.
Is this pre debate I assume ?
I see it now. There is not an article for the numbers on the right yet.
I am so loving this.
Yes, it’s all pre-debate.
Great... but this doesn’t this set the table for the “Obama Comeback” narrative the media wants to foist upon us?
“He was up 6, but now is only up 2 with the debate factored in!”
If they’re using a rolling average, a portion of it should reflect last night’s debate.
Rush just mentioned this. Great news! Just need it to hold.
This and Obama playing ads in California means the end.
Wouldn't be surprised.
He's far from perfect. But he towers above Obama.
It was 50-46 yesterday, if that means anything.
How's that Mr. Axelrod? Care for another?
"Republican nominee Mitt Romney took his biggest lead yet in today's Gallup daily tracking poll, expanding his lead over President Barack Obama to an astounding 6 points among likely voters. "
Hopefully WE'RE the ones celebrating and crying like the idiot college students 4 years ago this time.
It doesn't, and it would be impossible - debate didn't end until 10:30PM Eastern - they certainly wouldn't be calling people at 11PM last night, and there is no way they'd be polling this morning and have the data processed and validated by 1PM.
We need to cut the head off the evil, smarmy snake and fire 0bama, Biden, Jarrett, Napolitano, Eric Holder, Sunstein, Holdren, Lisa Jackson, and the whole stinking lot!!
Better put some ice on it, Axelhead.
And Mr. Gallup may want to increase his security detail. In particular, don’t go for walks alone at night.
.....and then there is Rasmussen. Which one is right or is it a combination of the two?
I doubt if Romney’s number goes down below 50%, but Obama’s could go up as undecideds make up their mind.
The number of liberals in Chapel Hill that are actively talking about not voting as “a protest to BOTH parties” is growing daily.
Good point, thanks.
No candidate, in the history of Gallup, has ever been above 50% this late and lost.
Hell hath no fury like a freshly minted convert.
Game, set, match.
54% to 46% popular vote 330+ on the EC.
Just enjoy the poll number today.
Gaining more momentum Woo Hoo 51% and steam rolling ahead. Let’s Roll America!
No wonder zero looked so p.o.’d last night. They know they’re toast.
I believe it is a setup. Gallup for the first time gives Romney a sizable lead in the last pre-debate poll? Riiiight.
The same Gallup who selected the “independent” voters who asked questions last night, like the Code Pink lady. And notice so far two of the questioners have already came out and said they have now “decided” to vote for Obama.
Big setup folks and totally predictable. The next few days and the week will be a steady decline of Romney’s lead in the Gallup poll and the breathless narrative will be Obama is surging.
I think all the polls are off some, but look to Rasmussen for at least a decent read. He has the race within a couple points now and we will see what the true post debate swing is from him. My guess is it will be minimal.
People are tired of being lied to (and they want a president who won’t keep killing off jobs and the economy)
That was pre-debate #2.
I’d like to see the numbers post debate #2.
This is huge because it pops the balloon in many voters minds about the inevitability of the Obama re-election that had been the narrative for several weeks leading up to the first debate. Gravity is pulling on Obama now, more than anything. Romney is now viewed by most open-minded people in America as competent, caring, energized, capable, in command, not “over-the-top” — in short, he is a viable alternative to the status quo now. Since the status quo sucks, it is a millstone around Obama’s polling numbers.
Is this a 7 day rolling poll? So it would include 4 days after VP debate. Woo Hoo R/R
My question too. What is happening there?
I agree, I think you will start seeing Romney’s number start hitting 50 in a lot of polls. He must get 51% in order to make sure Ohio isn’t close. These debates are good fodder, but the underpinnings of the election are against Obama and we’ve just been seeing the electorate fall into place.
Speaking of Axelrod...is he sleeping with the dead? He is the creepiest pale white guy I have ever seen.
51? That is game over if true. I think it will increase after this last debate. Romney persuaded more to come over, I believe.
Pure opinion: I think this is ground Obama cannot win back unless he tries an October Surprise.
Obama had been at around 51% before, just a few weeks ago, and Romney gained the upper hand after the debate, but Obama can’t do the same because he’s the incumbent. It’s easy as a challenger to peel voters away from the known quantity if they’re already dissatisfied with his performance, but once they switch, the incumbent has a real hard time getting them back because they already know him. Basically, if you’ve already decided that you’re not going to vote for Barry, you’re already locked in. He can’t pull you back.
I would love to get a peak at Obama’s internal polling. Might put the “When I Was President” context. He may know he is toast.
