Obvious disinformation. There is no way that support for Obama is increasing week after week proportionally to the number of new scandals and instances of his being completely unfit for the office are being uncovered.
In the most depressed turnout by the most disaffected bases for the most despicable candidates at this critical point, it will get down to which candidate is the most despised.
VOTE FOR ONE OF THE COMRADES AND INITIATIVES BELOW!
A) Comrade Vochenko: “The Party is the Light of the State!”
B) Comrade Chenkovo: “The Light of the State is the Party!”
That's simple to explain: the pollster still thought Romney could lose the nomination then. They have bought into their own illusion of inevitability.
Be prepared for a lot of poll fluctuation, most of it will actually be due to sampling, not changes of opinion.
They’ll take a poll that’s 34%D and 32%R and say “look! Romney’s ahead” then take another poll that’s 38%D and 28%R and then go “look! Obama’s gained four points!”.
So just hold your water. I think very few people will change their vote between now and November. Either you love socialism or you hate it.
More reliable polling says differently:
The 5 cent dip (rounly a 1 per cent decrease) gets saturation coverage from a friendly media and is made to sound like our energy woes are suddenly over. If a Republican was president, the media would be poking fun at this measley drop in prices and be running stories on how seniors are eating dog food because of high fuel prices.
Gallup polls registered voters, Rasmussen polls likely voters.
It sounds like a lot of those who prefer Obama are not feeling motivated in showing up to vote at this time.
Simple explanation. The media put Newt on blackout and he was the only one mounting an effective critique of Obama. Expect Mitt to fade more and more unless he makes Newt his V.P. and official attack dog. No other move he can make can save the election for him.
Sarah Palin is the answer.
Dump Mitt, Nominate Sarah Palin.
Show me the internals. Probably got 67-23 Dem/Repub makeup.
no internals to tell how badly Gallup skewed this.
Most polls are self serving so I ignore them
Either way a socialist wins. Vomit.
Options: Scroll, Scan, Scold (cursing allowed), Slur (contumely only), Scrub (ask Monitor to delete my reply)
A Gallup Poll from six months ago shows: Conservatives 42%, Liberals 21%
"Independents" are 37%? I guess.
Yet, Romney vs. Obama is more or less even 50-50 (omitting undecideds).
Conservatives get eight percent of the "independents" (42% + 8%) and liberals get 29% of the independents (21% + 29%).
Why is that?
IMO if that is what is happening it is because most independents do not know the difference between conservatives and liberals. Why is that?
IMO it is because the independents are apolitical and their media are "nonpartisan" entertainment and MSM "news". Neither of course is truly nonpartisan.
So First Family Obama and family are treated with kid gloves and respect. That's fine. Respect the Office.
But no mention of what we here on the Right discuss and document. Tain't fair unless the media source drops the pretense of being "nonpartisan."
In the worse-case "nonpartisan" media accept the popular meme that Republcans in general are anti-poor, anti-minority, war criminals and Daddy Warbucks (Iraq war), and mostly wealthy "who do not pay their fair share."
Another factor is "nonpartisan" media kowtow to MauMauing from the Left and have learned not to invite conservatives as guests. In some cases they limit what conservatives who do make it on to the show can talk about.
I personally have complained several times (including last week) but have received just one response.. an on-air angry denial that the show was bias in favor of presidential candidate Obama (2008) -- followed later in the show by the host exclaiming "I am tired of hearing about Bill Ayers!" after getting yet another caller wanting to talk about Ayers.
