"Approval index gets worse for Obama, he goes up in poll. Obama’s approval gets better for him and he loses an overall point or two."

Could have been substantially less than 1 point, ie, 46.9 -> 47.1

I plugged in today's Rasmussen's crosstabs (Romney 90R/12D/52I; Obama 86D/8R/41I) with Gallup's recently released party id/electorate survey which was D35/R36/I29.

Gallup Party id survey here

Result: Romney 52 Obama 45

Romney
Repubs 90% * .36 = 32.4
Dems 12% * .35 = 4.2
Indies 52% * .29 = 15.08
Total = 51.68 (52%)


Obama
Dems 86% * .35 = 30.1
Repubs 8% * .36 = 2.8
Indies 41% * .29 = 11.89
Total = 44.79 (45%)

So, do you think the massive increase in govt. spending last quarter has anything to do with the massive increase in the number of PT workers ? Between the Obama campaign and our tax dollars you gotta wonder how many PT positions they can make up and fill, at least through Oct. 6.

The campaign is practically over. Our focus now needs to switch to GOTV, especially as early voting (which I detest) is now going strong in many states.

I feel that Romney is in strong position to win this thing but the Obama people are pulling out all the stops and bringing people to the voting booths in busloads. By November 6th, they will have plied every homeless derelict off the streets with a bottle of schnapps and have gotten them to at least one polling place.

There will be all-out efforts by the Dems to steal this thing in the major cities of PA, OH, MI and FL. Everybody on our side needs to get out there and vote on November 6. I urge everybody to not fall for the "early voting" scam. If you vote early, there is a good chance your vote will be changed to Obama. I don't trust early voting at all. Show up on Election Day and cause traffic jams like we did on Chic-Fil-A appreciation day.

C’mon. Does anybody really believe that Romney is going to get only 88-90% of the GOP vote? Historically it’s has been 94-95% of GOP base. However, Obama is beginning to have a base problem with 11-12% of Dem vote going to Romney. This should up the Romney lead another 2.0-2.5 pts.

Agreed. If Romney can get the base support up to even 93% (which is the historical base number for Repubs - even McCain got 93% as did Bush in 2004), that’s an extra point overall.

I don’t like to see Fauxcohantas up 5 over Brown in Mass.

This is a Sunday poll? Taken today? IT seems that more Republicans go to church than Democrats, so they wouldn’t be available to answer a survey. On the other hand, most are not answering their phones to be polled. I know I’m not.

“The media isn’t harping on it and now forget it; it’s all SANDY SANDY SANDY. They have what they need to take any scandal off the front pages. Even though it wasn’t there in the first place.”

Do not consider this an altogether bad thing.
The race is frozen.
if turnout is reduced, it helps Romney.
