Steady as she goes.....
Internals look good for the Governor too...
The individual state numbers are all that matters.
If Romney wins Florida by ten, but loses Ohio by one, the plus nine is worth less than a cup of coffee.
Sweet. It’s definitely a better feeling being up a few than down a few like back through all of September.
This shows the brilliance of Romney’s strategy re: Libya. Letting events unfold will only work to his advantage, while launching an attack on Obama (which would have given Obama center stage to deny, lie, shift blame, and muddle the issue) might have backfired bigtime.
Good CEOs know how to pick their battles. Timing is key also, as there is still plenty of time for Obama to sustain further damage while remaining above the fray.
Attacking Obama is raw meat for us, but noone is going to switch and vote for Obama because of anything Romney said or failed to say in the 3rd debate. On the other hand, the polling data indicates that a majority of undecided voters saw Romney as a leader who could become the next President. The 3rd debate wasn’t about “us” - it was about them.
What this is starting to say to me is that people have made up their minds and this is the way the election will end up.
Obama has a real problem as it seems as if a couple points are bouncing for him. Which means a few are still considering voting.
I was reading into why the Suffolk guy, a couple of weeks, back called FL, VA and NC for Romney - despite polls showing the race in Virginia only 2-3 points.
It wasn’t because overwhelming great polls for Romney (i.e. 50-44, etc). His statistical theory is that an incumbent who cannot get to 49.5 in a state poll is going to lose. And that’s why he backed out of VA, FL and NC. He said if he sees Obama move up to 49-50 then he’d put them back in play. Today’s Rasmussen VA poll has it 50-48 for Romney, so again, Obama is under that number.
I think that’s important to understand. Morris goes by same theory. For example, when Obama leads 47-45, Morris calls that 53-47 for Romney. With the majority of undecideds breaking for Romney (although I think that’s way too generous).
Anyhow, in short, a poll showing Obama up 48-46 is different than a poll showing Romney up 48-46, according to this theory. It’s an interesting theory to remember down the stretch.
If Romney leads by four in all swing states, he is leading in Ohio.
So 3/7ths of this poll is post third debate. Looks like Barry didn’t get the bounce the media was working for.
- I just watched a former CIA man speak to Neil Cavuto on Fox News Channel about Obama, Paneta, Hillary, etc. -
- “BAD” and “SILLY” people who just watched for hours (in “real time”) as Ambassador Stevens and three others were tortured and died and - and King Obama & his Court did nothing to help them or to rescue them -
Can you imagine General George Patton saying this to General Eisenhower when US Airbourne soldiers were encircled by the Germans and freezing:
If I take our tankers to save them we might lose some of my men!
Let’s just wait and HOPE things improve and maybe even CHANGE for the better!
