Good news, the good 0bama day rolled off.
No internals as yet, as Scott actually posted the public numbers BEFORE the Platinum guys!!
Will post internal crosstab information as soon as I get it
This maybe the only daily tracking poll of the day. Gallup and IBP/TIPP are both out and ABCWASHPO is flaky
What was the partisan breakdown on this poll?
O is still at 47%. We have six days to go.
That’s his hard ceiling. His floor is 45%.
I wish he would only get the 25% that’s his base but we have too many brain-dead people in this country.
We’ll have to settle for what we think we’ll get and hope for the best!
I think Romney had a bigger lead in the swing state poll yesterday.
The storm will give Bammy an [undeserved] bounce. Unfortunately this will extend beyond the affected areas. I expect when the rain dies down his ugly face will be all over the TV showing concern, telling everyone that Big Bro is there to help, any other lies that he thinks may get him votes.
A little too close for comfort, but interesting that obamas always at 47.
lol some rain in NY and NJ isn’t going to affect the outcome of the election, calm down
The hurricane bump will be small.
I think any poll taken since Saturday is going to be pretty much useless. Sandy is so screwing up 1/3 of the country that it CANNOT be regionally balanced. People are running for their lives and they won’t be answering phones-—if the power is still on.
That must be why 48% think Obama will be re-elected. Obviously there are undecideds who don’t know or who don’t care.
running for their lives?
this is the most over hyped weather event i’ve ever seen. Basically a bad thuderstorm, in a couple of states that weren’t even competitive.
Time to refocus on the election
I hope you are right, but we shouldn’t underestimate the impact this may have. Our country comes together during a crisis and rallies around the president. Whether that translates to votes next week, only time will tell. But everyone here who is discounting the impact of this on the election is not grasping the significance.
It's looking good for Tuesday.
They will forget about it by Thursday when Obama will be in Las Vegas - the same place he went to after Benghazi.
crisis ? what crisis !?!
there is no crisis!!
It freaking rained a little in NY and NJ, with some mild flooding.
whoop de do!
let me see... I’m an moderate... and i’m thinking of voting for Romney... but then it rains in NY .... and I am so amazed at how well Obama handles the rain storm in NY that I am now going to vote for Obama in Ohio.
I will PRAY CONTINUOUSLY that you are correct!
