Steady as she goes.
Drudge has several photos from Obama's foreign trips.
"I'll carry that for you, sir."
("A few years ago this guy would be carrying our bags...." Bill Clinton.)
This has been holding pretty steady. 6-7 points with two weeks to go is a good place to be. Beats the other way around. Gallup has been around a long long time.
0 at 45 - add 3+ for Romney.... at 45 no way O is going to win this election.
Stick a fork in him - he’s done.
Hmmm, Romney’s lost a point since yesterday. Did Obama go to church or something?
This poll has been solid as a rock. Wow, Obama’s handlers in the media can’t be happy with staying at 45% day after day.
He went to the tele-mosque.
Important point: Obama doesn’t rise above 45% on any given day for this poll. Romney just bounces up and down at 51-52%.
Due to the fact that this is a 7 day poll, it is impossible to read very much into day to day movements. I wonder if they are going to switch to a 3 day poll in the final week?
Man, Obama’s gotta be sweating it out for the debate tonight. Romney can kill him with any combination of:
1. Libya and the attacks before the final raid on the Bengazi consulate.
2. Fast and Furious and the 200 related dead Mexicans. (Bob will try to claim this is domestic)
3. Obama’s “Flexibility” moment with Medvedev.
4. Arab Spring and people being crucified in Egypt.
5. Bowing to others.
6. Chavez, Castro, Putin, and other dictators supporting Obama.
I really hope Romney will romperstomp Obama and Obama cracks. I want to see the real side of Obama.
“I’ll lick that for you, sir.”
“Steady as she goes”
I agree. This is good news. Obama is stuck at 45%.
O stuck at 45 in Gallup. Just like the Monmouth Poll.
Four other polls have him stuck at 47: Rasmussen, ARG, NBC, and Politico/GW.
45 and 47 are static and bad places to be for an incumbent.
On October 22, 2008 Gallup had it: Obama-50/McCain-46 LV’s.
Anyone know when the garbage IBD/TIPP tracking poll comes out today?
In 2008 Obama went up 2+ on Election Night and Romney will probably go up 3+.
In other news, the head of the Gallup polling services was seen being escorted, handcuffed into a car by federal agents. A DOJ statement said he was being investigated for the publication of an anti-islamic video that was complimentary to the Prophet Mohammed, but disparaged the Prophet Obama.
When the history of this election is written, the Gallup poll is going to play a central role. From it being sued by Axelrod/DOj to its October Surprise of ruining Obama’s inevitability meme.
