Gallup: Romney 51-46. Most devastating internals yet for Obama.

Posted on 10/27/2012 10:15:29 AM PDT by hawaiian

Obama approval rating has taken a 14-point turnaround for the negative in the last 4 days. Getting just killed on personal approval. Hasn't been above 47 in 2 weeks. Benghazi and his body language are hanging all over him.

I am beginning to wonder if my 321-EV prediction for Romney is a tad low.

There is no spot in hell hot enough for those (and personally I think it was Jarrett and Michelle so O went along) who denied the requests for support and told our brave men to ‘stand down’.....how disgusting. IMPEACHMENT NOW

I’m shocked the ‘astard is getting anything more than the terrorist vote.

He needs to be kicked out of this country - no pension - no secret service - no nothing. Either that or exiled in a lonely prison.

Until we get the media cleaned out of the radicals we’re at extreme danger of this happening again.

Benghazi-gate may not be a ‘knock-out’ explosion, but it will be like constant mortar fire raining down on the “0” campaign from now till election day. They will not be able to come up for air or get any traction going, and will ultimately wither under the constant drone of this assault.

According to Carville, the incumbent can only expect to get the percentage represented by the lower of the two numbers. IOW Bambi is toast..even according to one of his own toadies.
God may yet save the Republic...but I think He is looking for a little input from the rest of us too.

The Obama re-election effort is disintegrating right on schedule. Good.

Even better, as we get closer to election day and everyone sees that he won’t get in again, more people will have the courage to speak up and against Obama, dragging him down even more - this will become a “runaway process”, like a growing snowball rolling down a hill, or a nuclear fission chain-reaction.

Even Obama’s boot-licking media shills won’t be able to stop it. Popcorn time!!

For the first time I'm starting to feel like Dick Morris's prediction of a Romney landslide might be on target. I just early voted this morning. I live in a deep red county (went for McCain by a 70/30 margin in 2008) in a state that is considered a solid lock for Romney (West Virginia). In the past when I went on the first Saturday of early voting there would be two or three people voting. Today I had trouble finding a parking space and waited in line for over an hour. The lady at the desk said it had been just like this since early voted started on Wednesday and she had never seen anything remotely like it in past elections.

My point is, if people are this motivated in solid red "non-swing" state where their vote essentially doesn't really matter. Then the Republican or Republican leaning voters in actual swing states are really going to be "broken glass" voters.

Benghazi? I was in the supermarket today. Not one single newspaper on the rack even mentioned Benghazi. The Rancid Media has the story locked up tight until after the election.

As bad as Benghazi is; it could even be worse. Worse would be Obama committing the treachery on November 7th, and voters having no say in it.

I’m having the hardest time concentrating on this thread. I’m at the community college and two middle-aged, female government workers are loudly complaining about how little the extremists respect “The President”.

They’re complaining how lost some of their male family members are.

If these figures hold till mid to late next week, its over.

Romney needs to step it up a bit. The guy seems to be running low on gas. Yet he still smiles, and that is good.

Omama aint smiling so much these days.

Another thing I’m hoping for as we get closer and it’s obvious he’s going down is that those ready to lie, cheat and steal on his behalf on election day will be less motivated and the lead grows.

I actually think is has more to do with the last debate ‘performance’. Just as I noted after the Biden/Ryan debate, people would get turned off by Biden’s behavior no matter if they thought he knew what he was talking about or not, the same is true even more so for Obama. The last thing he had was that some people thought he was a nice guy. Now that is shattered too and he is the emperor with no clothes. Big Bird, binders, BS, have not helped his likeability either

An apt analogy in your link. The problem is the guy saying there is nothing to see here would be some Republican tool like Boehner or Lindsey Graham. You know it is true.

No way. But Bush was up by 4 or so, I think, then the late surprise about his drunken driving episode or something like that happened over the weekend and all the undecideds started breaking for Gore.

True,
But remember the October Surprise of the BUSH DWI being unsealed. Cost W at least five points. Maybe more. Especially among women. He was already battling that “Frat Boy” spoiled rich kid image, as well as allegations of drug use. The DWI confirmed the worst fears about him. Unsealing records is high on the Dem playbook. Not gonna work this year.

Carville [...] IOW Bambi is toast..even according to one of his own toadies

Carville a toady for 0bama? That's rich.

Carville works for the Clintons. They, and their entire sizable clique despise Barack 0bama. The only reason they've turned out to give nominal support to the Amateur is so he won't stand in Hillary's way for 2016.

Notice how conservative bozo’s rhetoric becomes during the last few weeks of hard campaigning? What a fake and a phony.
When in doubt bozo always takes his cues from Alinsky’s Rules.

Don’t worry, once Obama is gone, there will be a best selling book written by a new Bernard Goldberg type. Most likely a young idealistic journalism major who got a job at a major network or newspaper. Someone who bought into Hope & Change, and at first, was willing to do anything to help Obama.

But then, at a certain point, they realized that Obama wasn’t who he said he was, and the media corruption started to sicken them. So they began to keep a diary of all the behind the scenes machinations going on at their network or newspaper designed to bury stories that would cast Obama in a negative light.

Maybe there will be several people like this, all competing for book deals. A lot of people are going to turn on Obama once he’s labeled as a loser.

My guess is that many in the Black community will do some soul searching and come to terms with the fact that Obama was never one of them, but rather a self serving “magic negro” con man. On the other hand, White Liberal academics and hipsters will continue to hold Obama in high esteem, since he fits the profile of the kind of Black guy that they’d love to have as their token Black friend. Someone that they can split an order of pesto couscous dumplings with mole sauce at an overpriced bistro in Park Slope Brooklyn with.

I do remember Gallup had Bush up big over Gore at one point, but I don’t think it was this late in the game.

Until a month or so before the election, Gallup does no screening for likely voters and tends to get wide variations in their results. As election day approaches, they go to their likely voter model and the results get much more accurate.

Be interesting to see a link that showed Bush up that big with Gallup that close to election day, but I doubt such a thing exists.

Holy crap at Approval/disapproval!!!!

Oct 24th: Approve 53, Disapprove 42
Oct 27th: Approve 46, Disapprove 49

3 day change: Approve -7, Disapprove +7

14 point swing in 3 days!??? OBAMA IS TOAST!

I sometimes go on DU to see what they think (haven’t in a while) but I remember them saying Gallup’s LV tracking was clearly insane since Obama’s approval was +11. Wonder what they think now that it’s -3 3 days later...hahaha.

I read that both Romney and his wife were under the weather last weekend. He wasn’t as sharp as usual during the debate and his voice has been raspy all week.

Hopefully, he’s starting to get his strength back now and will have a kick to finish the race.

They have been right for the last 4 months. When the polls were solidly for Obama, unskewedpolls kept pointing out the flawas in the polling. Not even Rassmussen saw this coming. this morning Rassmussen is now 51-46 for Romney in the swing states. Unskewed saw the trend 4 months ago!
