A Slim Edge Opens for Obama As the Closest Contest Concludes [WaPo-ABC: 11/5: Obama 50%, Romney 47]
WaPo-ABC ^

Posted on 11/05/2012 12:58:00 PM PST by bcatwilly

The ABC NEWS/Washington Post Poll to be released after 5:00 PM gives Obama a "slim advantage", "breaking out of a long-running deadlock" that conveniently coincides with a move from D+3 Friday to D+6 today.

Alert Drudge.

D+6 to get Obozo up to 50. What a joke. With that, I take it Romney once again leads with Indies.

Can’t wait til tomorrow with the R+6 turnout, and Romney winning Indies by double digits.

It’s going to be a night to remember.

Romney still +2 with Indies in this poll.

I think it is becoming clear that if turnout is D+6, then Obama will win. If it is D+2 or less, Romney will win. Anywhere in between and we are in for a nail biter.

Anyone know if Battleground has a final tracking poll coming out? It is the one I probably respect the most, and I would be interested in their final take.

Someday when the smoke has cleared and Mitt is presidentI wish to explain to a leftist what happened to their mind since roughly 2008. Explain to them their media fed delusions and how they came to occupy mentally unstable ground.

So in 4 days they doubled the +D turnout?

I’m guessing this is to keep the libs energized so they’ll still vote and minimize damage to the down ticket. I can’t think of another reason to do this.

Pollsters here are holding up Obama in order to keep Dems from getting destroyed in down-ticket races.

Was it them that was listing Romney as being up by 3 about 10 days ago? If so,this figure runs against common sense.Later deciders break for the *challenger*,not the incumbent.

Now THAT makes sense.

This is my take as well. GOTV has never been more important.
This race is all about enthusiasm and we have it on our side. It’s gonna be an interesting night because either Romney’s pollster is a genius or a fool.
lol

This reminds of 2010 in Massachusetts, with the Boston Globe, on election day, orgasmically shouting in it’s front page headline, “Coakley leads in latest poll by 15%”.

Yeah, right!

And that’s what I thought when I saw headline here - yeah, right!!!

These guys are whistling past the graveyard.

CA....

Oddly enough, this polls says Democrats are quite a bit more enthusiastic about voting for Obama than Republicans are about voting for Romney.

In this poll Obama has the enthusiasm edge 69% to 61% for Mitt.

I find that a little tough to believe. I do agree that there are more people in the country who want Obama president (adults), but my feeling is that Republicans are more energized (with a higher percentage being likely voters). It is precisely the enthusiasm that gives Romney any chance at all.

Direct from the PDF file located at http://www.langerresearch.com/uploads/1143a15TrackingNo15.pdf

Partisan divisions, Democrats-Republicans-independents, are 35-29-32 percent among likely voters; they were 39-32-29 percent in the 2008 exit poll.

Yet, on Friday, November 2nd they had it as:
Partisan divisions in this survey, Democrats-Republicans-independents, are 32-29-35 percent among likely voters. Partisan divisions in the 2008 exit poll were 39-32-29 percent.

I hope you all are right. I am sick of this poll watching, much less can’t figure out why any polling company would be willing to be wrong.

Koshermedia setup for Massive Democrat Vote Fraud, or (if America refuses to cooperate and vote to re-elect Bonzo, even WITH all that fraud) a basis on which to accuse Republicans of vote fraud and explain welfare animals rioting when the outcome doesn’t go their way:

“Romney COULDN’T have won!!! Every reliable, scientific, unbiased, non-partisan media poll showed him losing!!!”

Maybe the idea is to trumpet the biassed polls saying that Obama will win, to facilitate a Hugo-Chavez-style theft of the election? Those machines which change Romney votes to Obama votes worry me...how many voters won’t notice it happen when they vote and walk away thinking they had cast a vote for Romney, which instead gets counted for Obama?

A lot of people - conservatives, libertarians, indies, and even Dems, are chomping at the bit to vote against the arrogant narcissistic fraud in the White House. I think there will be a huge Pubbie turnout.
