NBC/WSJ poll: Presidential contest now tied
NBCNEWS.com ^ | 10/21/2012 | Mark Murray

Posted on 10/21/2012 6:58:11 AM PDT by Palmetto Patriot

Heading into Monday's final debate and with just over two weeks until Election Day, President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney are now tied nationally, according the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

Obama and Romney both get 47 percent among likely voters in the latest edition of the poll, conducted entirely in the aftermath of the second presidential debate last Monday. In the last national NBC/WSJ poll, which was conducted before debate season began, the president held a narrow, three-point lead over his GOP challenger, 49 percent to 46 percent.

I am so amused at how that 47% number just keeps appearing, in so many ways. It’s hilarious!

Yup. What a surprise.

There has to be a way to make money off something as predictable as the MSM.

These MSM traitors are hiding what is likely to be a rout of Obama and a repudiation of his backdoor politics.

There are millions of hardworking net taxpayers who know there is a huge huge entitlement class of leeches that subsist off them, via the 83 government entitlement programs not related to Social Security OR Medicare. It cost them 1.03 trillion dollars last year.

The government didn’t do the work it requires to pay that, these net-tax paying citizens did - and they are mightily pissed.

The MSM and these leeches will be very shocked come the morning of November 7.

My fondest desire is for them to be standing at the checkout counter and having to ask “what do you mean there is $0 on my EBT account?”

Roll Tide!

The Regressive media tried to use the polls to discourage Romney voters with their fake polling in conjunction with Bath House Barry's 6-month, $150 million campaign to demonize President Mitt Romney.......all that money and hard work went out the window the first five minutes of the first debate.

Now the Bath House pollsters are trying to buck up their own side, trying to keep them sober and coherent by election day.

The MEDIA is now running SCARED. The 1st debate blew their cover and as I predicted the polls would tighten as they now have an out so to not look too bad come November when they can claim they had Mitt winning. I really do see a possible landslide scenario starting to build..... Monday night is important once again...

They don’t list the D/R/I breakdown. Anyone want to guess? I’m thinking likely voters D+6 skew.

The single most significant political "event" I've seen this year wasn't even political. It was countless people waiting in line for hours to get a chicken sandwich ... to make a statement about how they feel about where this country is headed.

My bet is that about 99.8% of them will be casting ballots on November 6th to make the statement again.

WOW! If NBC cannot fudge the numbers enough to put Obama ahead, it’s going to be ugly for Team OTrauma.

I will be switching back and forth from MSNBC to CNN on election night. I am going to thoroughly enjoy the meltdown that will come when their ‘too close to call’ lame-stream polls are exposed for the fraud they are 1 hour after the counting begins. Just like the Wisconsin Recall.

And of course once it is clear that Zero has lost, the narrative will be RACISM. Their precious polls were not wrong — racist whites just lied to the pollster...

I’ll be switching back and forth from debate to Bears/ Packers. Best outcome is a victory for Mitt and the Bears!

Put a fork in Obama if the best that the Obama lovers at NBC can come up with is a tie... Ironically at 47%.

I think it’s probably the other way. The 47% number kept appearing so frequently that Romney chose that number.

Let’s hope they start casting them now if possible. My family has already voted. Let’s get people to the polls sooner rather than later. We can’t depend on just election day.

I’m too lazy to figure this out...maybe someone can answer.

Do these polls now reflect the 2nd debate? I keep hearing from Zero supporters that there is to be a bounce of sorts for The One once the 2nd debate is included in these rolling averages.

Sorry, to be more specific, is the second debate included not just this poll, but the rest of them?

“I am so amused at how that 47% number just keeps appearing”

I hear/watch that new Obama commercial, where the Obama people cite that 47% thing. And then go ahead and scare that group of people with losing their ride on the gravy train, which is what Mitt predicted Obama would do!

Our forefathers put up with less tyranny than Obama is piling on us . Our forefathers went to war , walking miles in bare bloody feet on frozen ground, to risk death for freedom. We could make a few calls now?Go to Romney’s site and volunteer to call people in Ohio and other swing states. Doesn’t cost us anything to save America, freedom , and our way of life. The time is now.

Obama is killing coal , oil, etc. and private companies. Just if we allowed the private sector to develop the U.S.’s unlimited coal, oil, natural gas, oil shale etc. just if the government and EPA got out of the way , energy would be the cheapest in the world for U.S. companies who could then outcompete China and other countries.

This POS Obama has closed 204 coal plants,
and done millions of other crimes,
piled on 11,000 new pages of federal regulations on business, and 13,000 pages more government regulations from obamacare coming,
did many unlawful executive orders,
6 trillion in new Obama federal debt etc.

you Obama get out of the United States you crimimal, marxist, muslim socialist Obama.

Unfortunately I will have to miss the assured ass-kicking Romney is going to dish out since I will be at Soldier Field watching the HOPED FOR ass-kicking the Bears are going to administer to the Lions. Then go to Uno’s or Due’s for some pizza.

I’ll have to watch final episode of The Disaster’s destruction later.

Last months poll had Obama at 50% and Mitt at 45% with this sample

44 O/37 R/12 Ind

So this month where they are tied the Dem sample is the same, one less in the Republican sample and 3 less independents.
