Romney drops a point; Obama still at 46

Steady as she goes.
O sitting at 46 - Romney’s lead at 50% is stable for an 11th straight day.
That would be 13 days in a row for Romney at 50 (or above) in Gallup. And 6 straight (at 50) in Rasmussen.
That is what a winner looks like.
PS - An incumbent, with 8 days (after today) to go before election day, at 46 is in HUGE trouble.
Wonder whether the weekend poll may account for the point drop?
Today’s WaPo shows Obama has a 4-point lead in Virginia. This goes against what we thought was Mittmomentum. Monday/Tuesday will give us a better picture.
The VA poll was a D+8. You can hang on to that all you want.
VA is an R+2 (minimum) state.
In short, Obama is at 46% in the national poll with 8 days left.
Good luck with that. You guys can spin all you want about state polls. It’s all you got left.
If Romney wins 51-47 (or so) it’s a landslide.
“Wonder whether the weekend poll may account for the point drop?”
It’s called the weekend, and statistical noise.
“Todays WaPo shows Obama has a 4-point lead in Virginia. This goes against what we thought was Mittmomentum. Monday/Tuesday will give us a better picture.”
I love when thee posters show up on the weekend.
Oooooooh! Here comes the concern express!
The WashCompost numbers are garbage.
No one outside of them thinks Obama will win in VA. Its reverting to its historical voting pattern.
Forget the polls, look at what Obama is doing. His campaign actions will tell you that he is worried.
I like the position we are in. So long as our side GOTV, we will have the Obamas packing their bags for an extra-long vacation with plenty of golf and ice-cream cones to lick.
BTW, four years ago, Gallup had McCain closing to within two points of Obama at this point in time. So fear not if this poll tightens up a little more over the next few days. So long as Romney remains at 50% or higher, there is no way for Obama to pull this out.
With Romney at 50 to 51% that could be a variation as small as 50.49 and 50.51%.
Same with Obama. It could be as small a variation as 45.49% and 45.51%.
yep. poor steelfish scouring the poll world for something to hang his hat on, right? surprised he hasn’t already made a thread about the washington post poll showing O ahead in VA.
wait for it.........
I think Zero will dip to 45. The Benghazi story will take a while to resonate and settle with some voters due to the major networks’ hesitancy to cover it. The Internet is, however, so I see a further down-tick for 0bama. This, barring some sort of as yet ‘0ctember surprise’ coming from the media or 0bama on Romney. I’m sure they’re digging deep now.
