CNN Ohio: 47% O; 44% R; 5% Libertarian; 1% Green
CNN ^ | 11/2/12 | CNN Political Editor Paul Steinhauser

Posted on 11/02/2012 2:30:12 PM PDT by Siegfried X

According to a CNN/ORC International survey released Friday, President Barack Obama holds a three point advantage over Republican nominee Mitt Romney in the contest for Ohio's much fought over 18 electoral votes.

Fifty-percent of likely voters questioned in the poll say they are backing the president, with 47% supporting the former Massachusetts governor. Obama's three-point edge is within the survey's sampling error. The survey was conducted Tuesday through Thursday...

... with 7% saying they could still change their mind on their choice for president.

Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson, Green Party candidate Jill Stein, and Constitution Party candidate Virgil Goode are also on the presidential ballot in Ohio. When their names were added to the poll, Obama is at 47%, Romney 44%, with Johnson at 5%, Stein at 1% and Goode registering less than one-half of one percent.

Ok coupling this with the Ras CO poll I’m starting to step off the edge just a little bit.

With this being a CNN poll, I’d have to say that Romney has picked up Ohio.

including 919 registered voters and 796 likely voters

The poll is being 'juiced' up to favor the Democrats.

More than half the sample are “registered voters” v “likely voters” and there are no internals as to party affiliation? Jokes. CNN is shameful.

You're not kidding, brother - if 86% of your Registered Voters are making it through your Likely Voters screen, then you have bad, bad data.

*Could* Barry be up three in Ohio? Sure, but there's no way to tell with a poll this bad.

Juiced is the correct word, as in Cool Aid. I can't wait to watch Chrissy Mathews, Mr. Ed Schultz the talking horse's ass and lesbo Rachael Madcow to drink the juice and commit suicide on Tuesday night.

Only worrisome if you actually expect the turnout model in Ohio to look like that...

Notice how when the liberaltarians are removed as a separate party they break for the communist.

I’ve been saying for quite some time, there are some conservative-leaning libertarians, but most of them are better labeled as liberaltarians.

Why? According to Rasmussen Romney wins Colorado no matter how the undecideds split.

I know I'm engaging in a bit of wishful thinking here, but is it possible that a percentage of people are lying to the pollsters like happened in '04? Remember how the networks were aghast at how Kerry did so badly , especially when the exit polling showed it to be almost neck and neck.

As I said, maybe it's wishful thinking on my part but I'd bet a good portion of the "undecided" vote just doesn't want to admit that they've had it with this regime. Maybe they're afraid of the racist label, maybe they want to appear above the partisan fray and want the pollsters to think they're "really giving the election considerable thought".

After all we've seen from the asshat in the WH this past four years I find it hard to believe it can be this close. In the past a president who presided over this crap economy, not to mention the bungling and coverup in Libya would be threatened with impeachment, not being considered for another term. As Rush said, the same people who gave the GOP such a landslide in 2010 , are not going to turn around 2 years later and vote this clown in again.

with Johnson at 5%, Stein at 1% and Goode registering less than one-half of one percent.

Third-party voters are drug-addled, animal molesting, sociopathic retards.

Democrats are even worse.

Unfortunately, CNN is running in the lobby of the building where I work. It is non-stop leftist propaganda. They torture facts and omit anything that goes counter to the liberal/statist narrative. You can’t believe anything they say or write.

It is CNN, but this is very bad news for any chance of Romney/Ryan winning. Obama will win, sad but true.

Oh please.

Libertarians are an entire wing of the Republican party. There is no pro-liberty analog on the Democrat side. They are all statists.

I believe the last CNN poll of Ohio was O+5, yes?

So let’s look at trends only - Romney has now moved 2 points closer according to the biased CNN, so the trend is in our favor and Romney is likely up in Ohio at this point.

“Obama will win, sad but true.”

THE LAST POLL FROM ORC HAD obama UP BY 5 POINTS WHEN GALLUP HAD MITT UP BY 5 POINTS. Are you going to vote for Mitt or are you going to surrender to propaganda?

There is a portion of the Progressives who call themselves libertarian. Their main issues are drugs and sex: no laws at all regarding either. They have major problems w/authority, which is why they don’t admit to having anything in common w/statists.

I have had some of them admit to me that they would vote D if there was no L choice.

They say they back Ron Paul.

I know quite a few liberaltarians who would take serious issue with your comment.

They want nothing to do with the Republican party.

Many of them would go Green if they couldn’t go L.

Just read the comments section on Zero Hedge, Market Ticker, and Mish.

There is a difference between a Libertarian and a Libertine. Libertines don't want the state to get in the way of their self gratification (sex, drugs, etc.). But they are perfectly happy to have the state confiscate wealth and property. This confiscation is a key tenet of the Green party. Libertarians don't want the state to get in the way of individual liberty. This is why Republican libertarians oppose abortion, on the grounds that the unborn baby is an individual with the same rights as anyone else. And why they reject wild public spending for green energy.

The next time a Democrat tells you they are libertarian, ask them if an unborn baby has a right to liberty.
