Please update the title to O47 please
Headline left off the 7 in Obama’s “47.” And yup, it’s pretty good news!
You title needs edited, Ta!
LOL when I first saw this I thought it said R50/O4..and I was like YES Romney is up by 46 points LOL but yea this is really really good news since before it only showed Romney up 1
Didn’t WaPo have Obama slightly ahead just a couple of days ago?
I’m certain Romney’s winning, but most of these polls are garbage.
That 47% does seem to keep cropping up.
I just posted the article from ABC News. Same poll...
O is never going to get more than 45% - his approval rating at the moment. This is the last weekend of October and O’s numbers look just terrible.
Romney has a solid 50% lead that he’s keeping!
Independents by +19!!
Yes, but let’s campaign as if Romney’s behind. Let’s not take anything for granted. Get your conservative friends out and vote!
R50/O4! Best poll ever!
Except mine has the Kenyan at 4!. Not bad huh?
Love your headline! O’s support should be even lower than that! ;-)
Much more realistic weighing. I think Democratic voter advantage is more likely 2 or 3+. Worst case scenario, it will be even.
O is not exactly feeling the love even from his own disheartened and demoralized base.
+4 Rat sample
The Libya thing should start having its effect about the next two or three days.
If that does not change the outlook, nothing will.
For the demented Obamer nuts, it will not change a thing, but I am curious what it will do for the rest of the voters.
CAN’T, CAN’T CAN’T wait to vote.....C’MON BABY steady as she goes!!
- 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!
Anyone want another of my beers while we eat this delicious tender Kobi beef?”
Wouldn’t that be odd if Obama lost with 47% of the popular vote? (Like Romney himself, I think Romney overstated matters when he used the 47% figure. That figure includes a lot of of folks whose net-zero income tax results from honorable circumstances. Still, whatever the % of people who see themselves as victims may be, it’s too high — and growing.)
Do we smell a trend?
Gallup, Rasmussen and ABC/WaPo all at 50-47.
There must be true panic in Chicago.
PS - If Romney is truly running away with Indies at this pace, the election is over. It will be a landslide.
That might blow up the Dems (temporarily, of course, until she & Bill reconstitute a more centrist party in time for 2016). At least that's what Bill would like to happen, according to Mr. Klein (the author of "The Amateur".)
This is the poll that the local Philly ABC station broke down to Romney 47.51% and Obama 47.44% a few days ago to show that Romney wasn’t really up 48-47 - wonder how they’ll handle this........
My biggest fear now is that I’ll get hit by a bus on November 5 !
If you’d slow down and not try to be the first to post an article, you’d get these headlines right.
It seems like the “powers that be” for these tracking polls have coalesced around the D+4 model. I believe it will be closer to D+2 or D+3, but if Romney is +3 in all the polls with the D+4 model I will not complain.
Romney called the 47%.
Sad that nearly half of Americans would vote for the Kenyan a second time.
Take a look at the internals of this poll. They surprisingly broke it down by days. Each of the last three days, Romney has gone up vs. Obama.
Whether Libya or the debate, there is a definite suggestion of a drift upwards for Romney during this week.
They’re trying to tell the Kenyan that he’s in trouble and he needs to do SOMETHING and FAST!
I hope it’s too late.
I feel like it’s too late.
My liberal friends are still grasping at straws, but I’m not getting the silly campaign updates that I was getting from them last month.
Stay on target...
Well, I really am not very excited about any of this yet. There is certainly the possibility that Nate Silverman has a good point, and that the “national” polls are being overwhelmed by the South GOP content. For that reason, I won’t be happy until I see polls that have Romney up by 10pts (or election returns showing he won.)
Obama had no time for those not so optimum bumps in the road you know, he is running a campaign. What is ya ignorant or something?
Here it comes...suddenly all the polls are going to start moving to the truth!
ROMNEY EKES OUT BRAGGING RIGHTS (10-24-12)
Mitt Romney eked out bragging rights in the latest ABC News/Washington Post tracking poll, claiming 49 percent support among likely voters vs. Barack Obamas 48 percent Romneys first numerical edge, however slight, since before the party conventions.
Slight is the word: Taking it to two decimals (for illustration only not to imply false precision), Romney has 48.51 percent support, Obama 48.44 percent about as close as it can be. Still, with rounding, Romneys 1-point numerical edge is his first since an ABC/Post poll Aug. 25.
But he can't provide any proof of that, and he knows on election day, Ohio historically tracks national PV, regardless of how he'd like to explain away his master's defeat...
No problem, sonny. It’s for your own good.
