This is already dated.

FWIW Polltracker has Obama 49.1/Romney 46.9.

Maybe someone else can talk about why this ‘average of polls’ is so much more favorable to Obama than RCP.

Many of the polls included in the compilation employ D+7 or higher skews. RCP does not include all polls on its site; as an example, they continue to show Obama ahead in PA by 4.8 because they did not include a recent poll showing Romney up by 5 points there.

The polls have to start showing Obunny up, so when the fraud kicks in, there won’t be questions!

Polls are odd this year.
Personally I think it’s caused by a large independent Romney (anti-Obama) vote this year vs a large pro-Obama independent vote in 2008.

A lib-leaning pollster’s view.

And I hope Ohio’s numbers are skewed by Obama’s fantastic 2008 turnout.

Anyway, it’s probably close.

DU is already celebrating, they know there are enough fraudulent votes to make this happen. The news is full of voter fraud today!

If Obama wins, it will be solely by voter fraud. I’ve never seen anything like the atmosphere surrounding this election.

Or, could it be that they have been doctoring these polls, to create the impression that Obama is more popular than he really is?

The last polls before the election should be the most accurate, as the pollsters will want to prove how reliable they are.

Unskewed at

http://unskewedpolls.com/

is showing 324 EVs for R and R.

This organization tries to use turnout projection AND polling.

My projection is 357 or ~ 2:1.

Do you mean the Obama who slept while four Americans were slaughtered in Benghazi?

They’ve got Arizona as a toss-up; Tennessee is “leaning Romney”. Not sure what else. Wasn’t sure this was the right year or right election I was looking at.
