Gallup dude was on TV a few days ago and said a couple of good days from Obama would be showing soon in his poll. Still sucks though. Seems as tho zer0 got a small bounce from the foreign policy debate.
Meh whatever. this is gonna be close folks. stop yapping about landslides. that ain’t happening.
As predicted, there’s Obama’s 47% again.
There is a new trend, Obama is on the rise and it’s clear now. New poll has Obama up in NV 50/47, tied in OH. Check my history, I’m no fan of Obama but I won’t bury my head in the sand. Romney is NOT moving up in the swing states. The media won’t report on anything that may be damaging to Obama and they will elevate anything that will damage Romney. I’m disappointed but this went from 7 to 3 points in less than a week
Probably wasting my time in the face of the onslaught of “concerned” posters, but this is a 7 day tracking poll. You cannot extrapolate today’s numbers with recent events. It may be nothing more than unusually good Romney days from LAST WEEK are rolling off the 7 day average.
a lot of wild swing in Gallup polls 4 years ago. From 2 to 10 in 4 days. Not likely
Looks like Romney is sitting almost exactly where Obama was in 2008.
I guess you’re right, it could also be a very good day for Obama that just came on
Obama’s job approval also jumped up 5 to +11.
Americans are still having difficulty breaking that emotional bond with Obama. They know time is getting short and it appears they’re becoming frightened about going on without him.
O is not going to break 47%.
When you look at enthusiasm and the crowds RR are getting at their campaign stops, day to day polls averages don’t matter much.
This is not going to stop the Mittmentum.
Not sure why Bambi has gained 4 points in three day, certainly wasn’t the Debate IMO
More likely it is simply statistical noise. Take a look at the table posted above containing 2008 daily results. The numbers bounced considerably day to day.
It is my belief from examining this poll is that the 14th, 15th and 16th were extremely bad polling days for Obama, today’s poll just dropped off the last of them, the 16th. The 17th and 18th(after the 2nd debate) were the days that the Gallup guy said had “good” Obama polling. So tomorrow I believe we will know more, because likely Obama will be losing a 48 or 49% polling day from the 17th in tomorrow’s results. We’ll see.
At any rate, so long as Obama remains under 50%, he is the one that needs to sweat out the next 10 days regardless of how the polls move from day to day.
I continue to believe that Gallup has been setting us up. The threats from the Obama campaign have worked. I simply have no faith in Gallup. Gallup wants to help the MSM start an “Obama the Comeback Kid” attempt at creating a bandwagon effect.
LOL. Why the hand-wringing? Obama is the incumbent. He is in the 40s this close to an election. Polls have margins of error. Gallup is just one of many. The trend is still towards Romney nationally and in the battleground states. The Obama campaign is acting like they are losing, e.g., publishing a 20 page brochure with their agenda for the next four years. Mitt has the momentum and the bucks. Drive to the finish.
i like that sheet - thanks for posting!
