Romney is going to win this handily folks... Obama may get a little bump from the storm, but not much.
Turnout will be R+3/4 IMHO.
I still see no reason to believe Obama will top 42-43% of the popular vote at best on election day.
Fight like its 50-50 but the idea this thing is close is not remotely based in reality.
Romney will win Ohio by at least 4.. I don’t care what poll says its neck and neck.
D+9 is another way of saying nine trips with the vanpools though the same ‘hoods.
Another important thing to consider is the momentum this poll shows. Charlie Sykes mentioned this morning that this poll was 51-46 Obama just a few weeks ago. That result could have been called an outlier (I’ll call it one) because at that point Obama wasn’t over 50 in any reliable poll, and this one may be an outlier, too, because it shows Romney well below where Ras and Gallup have had him.
But more to the point, whether the pollsters have been gaming the system or whether the race really did do a complete U-turn after the debate, people who were telling us Romeny was toast a few weeks ago are telling us he’s on top and surging a week out.
That means something.
Of note, they included states like New Mexico and Michigan as battleground states.
The ole' Snakehead Shazam.
Thanks, didn’t know that. So just another way to finagle things until they get the numbers they want.
He might get a small one or two day bounce from the 2% of voters who are still undecided, but the last four years of his unprecedented incompetency and destructive handling of the US economy cannot be erased by any short term event - no matter how dramatic.
Romney's lead has remained very consistent, and is (evidently) even growing, as the pollsters begin to inject more honesty into their work. They can't risk massaging the polls any longer, as to do so risks getting it wrong on election day, thereby blowing their credibility for the next election.
There's just far too much ground for Obama to make up now. With only a week left, the odds of him doing so are insurmountable. The vast majority of voters have already made up their minds, and will not be swayed. By all indications, a majority of them will be voting to give Romney a chance at the job.
Regardless of the outcome, the majority of men will have voted against the jackass.
Don’t see the alleged Sandy bump as anything meaningful.
It will be on the test!!
I hope you’re right and it’s not a bumch of pick up trucks and SUVs with heads exploding. Or my head exploding.
Actually, my kids voted for this crap and they still love him so let ‘em reap what they sew. But, I feel sorry for the rest of the world.
Well, it's been a couple of days now, and the Commander of Chaos is back on the campaign trail. Did he get any bump at all?
In for the photo-op, out before the cries for food and fuel. Typical commie jackass.
Reading today’s headlines, I have a feeling that whatever bump Obama gets from Sandy will go away after the weekend.
