Gallup Shocker: Romney Up Five Over Obama
breitbart ^ | 4/17/12 | John Nolte

Posted on 04/17/2012 12:21:04 PM PDT by Nachum

Row faster, Mainstream Media! Faster!

There are all kinds of polls out there, but except for a single outlier, even in polls that show Obama ahead of Romney, the President is still stuck in the mid-forties -- the last place any incumbent wants to be.

Today, Gallup's daily tracking poll gives the White House and Obama's Media Palace Guards another reason to gulp:

Romney 48%

Obama 43%

More bad news for Obama is that his challenger is already romantically close to that magic 50% number.

The bad news for us is that if these polls continue to show Obama in serious trouble, the media is going to absolutely freak out and start their salting-the-earth crusade early.

Oh boy. Obama is losing and we might get president Romney.

I think I have a headache

No shocker. The plan is to have Romney lead in the polls until after the convention. He is only winning when people buy the “he can beat Obama” line.

There are plenty of dissatisfied liberals who will be happy to vote for Romney. My vote won’t be missed.

I wouldn’t. I’m pretty certain Romney doesn’t hate whites. I knew Hissein did before he became the nominee.

I think anyone who is planning to skip the vote for Romney in the general should go on record. Then when we get four more years of weaselBama we will know to discount and ignore your every word of complaint.

“The plan is to have Romney lead in the polls until after the convention.”

And for maybe a week after the convention. Romney must look invincible, inevitable or there is a possibility of a brokered convention, and possibly no Romney.

I think the dems whole campaign depends on Romney, based on the ideas being floated- wealthy white guy, one of the 1%, lays people off for his profit, does not pay his fair share, belongs to a religion that once excluded dark-skinned people as a matter of doctrine, and so on.

Polls are designed to change, not reflect, opinion for the most part.

Hard to believe it is 43%

The right track/wrong track poll says only 32% believe we are on the right track.

Dems, ya best broom this Obama America hater off the stage right now!!! I just want all you liberal, lowlife, dirt bag types out there, to be aware that I called the 2010 Mid Term Elections to a tee!!! Not bragging, just telling you how the winds are blowing!!! If Mitt Romney has any brains at all, he will choose a bonafide, unquestioned, conservative VP nominee to run with him. If Romney does that alone, he will beat Obama 55% to 45%. Obama will not carry more then eight to ten states.

And.....Dems you all are going down politically with Obama. You still have time to force this failed POTUS Obama to....either elect not to run for POTUS or....resign immediately!!! You dummies won’t do either!!! So enjoy your future, adrift at sea!!!

Choosing between two liberals doesn’t earn my vote. Strict constructionist conservatives like myself realize that the war is already lost. Even if “my guy” were to win it would only result in anarchy as we have grown our dependent class to unsustainable proportions. If you feel good voting for Romney have at it. I’m not going to waste my remaining time rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.

And, shouldn't the same be done with those voting from Romney? Then, if Romney gets in and sells out conservatives, decimates the Republican party and puts another David Souter on the Supreme Court, we'll know whose opinion to discount and ignore?

There is no possibility of a brokered convention. The odds of that happening were always slim to none - the odds now are none.

Polls are designed to change, not reflect, opinion for the most part.

Gallup is not involved in some kind of weird conspiracy to nominate Willard. They started doing the head to head polling when it became obvious to every political analyst and pollster in the entire world that Mitt had effectively locked up the nomination already.

Nothing they throw against Romney will make a difference. The Jeremiah Wright story would have sunk any candidate; Obama survived it only because the economy was in free-fall. With the economy stuck where it is now, Romney will cruise to election even if they have film of him performing polygamous marriages.

Yet the GOP and their Mittstream Media operatives laboriously detailed how every single Republican candidate other than Mitt was "unelectable."

At any rate, Kerry was ahead of Bush solidly until about July. I wouldn't count your mittens yet.

Perhaps Bruce Bialosky of Townhall.com nailed it in his most recent piece with this sentence...

He proved yet again that he is grossly arrogant, utterly ignorant, a shameless liar, or perhaps all three. It is now abundantly clear that this man deserves the re-election vote of virtually no American.

Pretty much.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." -C. S. Lewis

Not true. 19 states with almost 1,000 delegates have left to vote. Romney isn't even close to having the 1,144 delegates he needs. He needs about half of the upcoming ones. He's the weakest frontrunner in at least 35 years. This has been an unprecedented primary in many ways, starting when 3 different candidates won the first 3 states. If the voters in the next 19 states don't want Romney, they have the power to choose a brokered convention.

__________________________________________________________

Well, will somebody please tell Mark Levin that Massachusetts is Ameratopia.

He know’s that Newt is still in the race and he also told his listeners that he would support Newt if he was the only conservative left.

I refuse to give Levin a pass when he knows that more babies will be murdered and those that survive the womb will be at the mercy of the Sodomites. Guess what? There is NO MERCY with sodomites. Hide your kids folks.

i’m disgusted!

Oh, how I wish we had something like the Swift Vets who drowned Kerry to drown Romney.

I’m not postulating any weird conspiracy. Polls generally get pushed and talked about in MSM to influence opinion. They are using crowd logic- if everyone thinks “x”, then I’m more inclined to think “x” too, and a poll is the major way I learn what “x” is.

Looks like Free Republic needs to work harder. It’s early but increasing from 2 to 5 % in a day makes a Romney win seem more likely. That can’t be allowed to happen.

Since this is coming from Gallup, it’s probably more like 60%-40%.

If the American people had an honest Media, it would be 95%-5% in favor of a retarted clam running against Obama.

Yeah, I get headaches whenever I think of an American citizen assuming control of our Defense Department and our National Security. I am sure the people of Poland and Israel also hate the idea of an American being in charge of say, America.

What alleviates my headache is the idea of a Kenyan communist continuing to control our Soldiers and Marines.

Yeah, our military is much better off under Obama.

Good call.
