Could the last line of the intro “trust the president more on national security” explain why the media is refusing to cover the sacrifice of an ambassador?

Barry's "got your back". Unless you're being attacked by terrorists in Benghazi. Then you're on your own.

These polling outfits are an absolute joke.

In the six-month long runup to every presidential election, they release hundreds and hundreds of polls, every one of which shows exactly the same thing: the Democrat candidate is comfortably ahead, and the Republican/Conservative candidate doesn’t have a chance.

Then, in the days just before the election, the polls “tighten up.” By election day, the results are “too close to call,” and so are useless.

The entire exercise is useless. The polling companies are useless. They are just another media outlet pushing society toward disorder and chaos in whatever way is possible for them.

This was the day after the debate. As you know Romney’s performance kept getting better day after day. That means the numbers have changed. Then add in Benghazi.....

The fact that they keep producing this absurd result over and over of it being an EXACT even split tells me that these guys are just BSing.

Every election is “too close to call”? Every election is an even split? Please.

“They are just another media outlet”

Don’t blame the polling outfits. They just report what most people think. A few guys like us scratch around to find authentic news. But most people get it from shows like “The View”, or worse yet, from “The Nightly News”.

CNN has released an Ohio poll with Zero 50% and Romney 46% at http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2012/10/26/cnn-poll-obama-50-romney-46-in-ohio/?hpt=hp_t2

Can’t find the internals to this poll anywhere.

I predicted this would happen. The lame-stream will manufacture a Zero ‘come-back’ to try and energize their base.

Obama keeps getting the white vote over 40% for men and women in OH and has a huge age gap with Romney over the under-50 years. This is why Obama believes OH will be his firewall.

That 40% includes union thugs, people collecting food stamps, people collecting unemployment for 99 weeks (2 years), the almost 9 million on disability, people getting heat subsidies, rent subsidies, aid to dependent children moms, etc. Obozo has loosened rules to get qualified for disability. More dependents on gov’t checks = more votes for the radical socialist from Chicago.

Week after week of tied polls? Smells worse than the dumpster behind a fish market.

Unless there is a plan to “condition” America into an electoral tie, then Congress and the Senate choose the winners.

Romney would get the POTUS slot, Biden the VP, unless Harry Reid instead was around, but last I heard he was in a fender bender, Was Hilary driving that day and area?

The dems do NOT want Biden, Reid is first choice but Hilary will do anything to get back into the Whitehouse.

Give a few days for the story to sink in, all of it is just unfolding these past few days. State polls lag.

Well, let's check the #s: Adrian Gray has Rs leading early voting by .01 with 250,000 cast x 16 (5m less 1 m early votes=4m) or a lead of 1.6%. But you have to subtract something like 70-85,000 absentee advantage Ds had . So that leaves us about 45000 short. However, these are ONLY early voting stats ( which Rs lost huge in 08). If you figure Rs have a propensity to turn out on Election Day, then add 46,000 votes for every 1% advantage Rs have on Nov. 6. And then if Romney has ANY indies, they would pad the lead even more.

In short, Rs need a slight turnout advantage on Election Day itself to win (McCain got that, so I don't think that will be hard.) just a tiny percent advantage with Indies will get you to 52%.

Guess he’s wrong, huh? Adrian Gray showing Rs very slightly AHEAD in early voting. That points to a solid Romney win along the lines of 3-4%.

Rasmussen has a 100 percent accurate rating. I wouldn’t be so quick to ignore Rasmussen. Sure some of the polling places are a joke, but not Rasmussen.

Thank you. Nov 6th is going to be very entertaining watching Ohio go to Romney.

My math may be wrong on the good side. I assumed an equal number from each county, but if, say Wood Co is up .01% that would be a smaller # of cut all votes than if Franklin is up .01%. It doesn’t change the % but could mean that Romney could conceivably “have it won” before anyone votes on Election Day, given that Ds don’t have enough early votes “in he bank” to. Cover normal GOP turnout.
