Yesterday, CBS/NYT released its latest Quinnipiac poll of Colorado, Virginia and Wisconsin. With the exception of CO, the polls had heavy Democrat skews, so the head-to-head match-ups aren't particularly informative. What was telling though was the differences in enthusiasm between the two parties.
In all three states, a majority of Republicans say they are more enthusiastic about voting this year, compared to about a third of Democrats who are. In Colorado and Virginia, GOP voters are more enthusiastic than Democrats by a 15 point margin. In Wisconsin, GOP enthusiasm outpaces Democrats by 16 points.
Particularly interesting is that GOP voters have become more enthusiastic about voting in the past month.

This is purely anecdotal, but here in Massachusetts, along my commute between Southbridge - Amherst (I stay off the MA Turnpike) though I do see Obama bumper stickers the closer I get to Amherst, I have YET to see a significant number of Obama lawn signs like I did four years ago. I’ve seen as many signs for Scott Brown as I have for Elizabeth Warren and Richard Neal. I can count on my fingers the number of lawn signs for Obama. If his base support is this apathetic in Massachusetts,...
THat’s IT!!!!!! I made it early last year (when McCain and company were calling us Hobbits as a hardcopy cut and paste)THank you thank you thank you!!! :-)
note to self: learn photoshop and other ‘tools’.
This election is something to be nervous about. It’s life or death for America. It’s like when you go in for a major surgery. You have confidence that it is going to go well, but, there’s a possibility something could go wrong. So, you’re nervous while waiting to go under the anesthetic. You hope that when it’s over and you wake up, all will be well, but, you’re never 100% sure.
This is the answer to the question you posed in your post #23:
The overwhelming majority of media polls are assuming an electorate that is at least as Democrat as the one in 2008, with many polls assuming a higher Democrat turnout.
Thank you!!! I actually made it in hardcopy way back when we were being called “Hobbits”. I have to get photoshop and figure out how to use it.
Windflier posted the image I made in post 152. I’d like to have it on a t-shirt. :-)
God bless your mom!
Because they are not news, they are propaganda. They have lost any pretense of regard for objective truth.
You said: My entire immediate AND extended family voted for the Marxist last time around
We have 47 days left before the election. Is there no way you can CONVERT THEM? Seriously.
Agree with all the comments above...not a huge Romney fan, but have to play the cards we are dealt. This is truly a turning point for our country and every vote is important to our side. I think regardless of who wins the independent vote, Repub turnout vs. Dim turnout will decide the matter.
Crawling through broken glass and over mountains to vote for an unpopular, uninspiring GOP candidate. That shows just how miserable an excuse for a president the Manchurian Muslim is.
I'm serious...really, she said that!

About the only thing I could do to keep these folks from voting Donk is organize an all-day, all-expenses paid fishing cruise for them on November 6th. If I had the cash I might even try it.
But... they don’t know that it’s false. They are simply giving their customers what they want. If their customer wants to know how the campaign is going based on the same turnout as 2008, why should Joe’s Polling Service say, “Sorry. I won’t take your money. I don’t think the turnout’s going to be anywhere near that. Take your check and shove it.” They sell a service. If someone wants to pay them perfectly good money to run a poll based on ridiculous assumptions, why should they say no?
This is an interesting story. There have been a few others in the last day or two about Hussien buying a house for January 2013 and the possibility of Hussen loosing the popular vote.
This may be a frantic signal from the MSM to the chair and the jackasses that: “we have tried to demoralize the GOP and it has not worked at all.”
Hearsay bedwetting. Jesus H. Christ, I thought I'd seen it all...
Amazing how all the polls are all over the place. I do think, however, that enthusiasm will win the day. Clearly, this is not 2008 with an immense Dem turnout. Unfortunately, it isn't 2010 (yet) either with a GOP rout.
6 weeks is a long time and lots will happen. Good news is Romney has had many, many debates; Obama - none. Obama is not used to being challenged, so this could be fun. Of course, the lefties running the debates will try to help; but I think Romney is ready for them.
Well jboot, I work with some who voted for Obama in ‘08 when they were in a “state of stupid”. Now they are embarrassed, to say the least, and very disappointed in his job performance. It only took a little nudging to get them to abandon him this time. I don’t know any family members who voted for him. Our family is long-time, entrenched, Conservatives. We knew the guy was a Marxist Muslim from the git go.
Wow! Made my day. Thanks.
I coined the term Broken Glass Republican in 2000.
I'm glad I'm not the only one this year.
