47% video is kicking in
Fannntastic. Let the country burn IDGAF anymore.
Like everything with barry it will fade. This was the media pushing the 47 pct but as the truth slowly drips out it will be Romney ahead
I suspect the 47% video is influencing the mushy-headed 5-7%. This was my fear. Watch Obama continue to use quotes from that video in strategically placed geographic areas. Romney needs to get more aggressive on this issue or it may be an Achilles heel.
The Democrat media and entertainment complex may just be too much to overcome. In that case, America is finished.
The silver lining I do find is 17 countries outpace America on the economic freedom list now. When it all goes to sh*t — and it will if Obamugabe is reelected — it’d be good to know there are a couple options.
Estonia is looking good right now.
I think you will see Obama up 5 by week’s end. But by next week it’ll be back to a tie. No matter what, it all comes down the economy - and it is lousy... and Obama owns it.
This is a bad week for Romney (unfortunately just as he was going ahead after the DNC bounce deflated). Oh. Well.
Nah most polls support mitts statement, this is the sugar high barry is barry
Romney was right. These people will vote for free stuff no matter who gets hurt by it. To these voters, it's all about "gimme gimme."
("Thou shall not covet thy neighbors goods.")
The problem with these daily polls from Rasmussen, is there seems to be 4-5% who will change their minds if somebody down the hall farts.
“Typical white people” as Barry would say.
They are based on a three day average so he picks up trends quickly. And it is undeniable, at least in the short-term, these comments have dinged Romney pretty badly.
lol your right within a week the ME will still be hot,obamacare will still tax 6 million people per the cbo barry still want know how much the natl debt is need I go on
Hope you’re right, but right now 93-95% of the likely voters have made up their mind. The last 5-7% are, by definition, ill-informed, apolitical types who are easily convinced by demagoguery and propaganda. No poll easily captures their tendencies, no matter what the pundits claim. The 47% video is easy fodder for the Dumbocrats to use on the addle-brained.
The poll results that are most troubling here is that Obama’s approval is rising, even on specific issues like foreign affairs and the economy - the two issues he is currently bungling big time. Clearly a dfisconnect bewteen the American electorate and reality.
Here in Pennsyltucky the Dems are absolutely bombarding the airwaves with ads attacking Romney and other Republicans for supporting “the outsourcing of our jobs”.
Never mentioning that NAFTA was signed into law by Bill Clinton, and the offshoring of jobs continued enthusiastically and unabated throughout 2 Democrat administrations. AAAAAAARRRRRGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!
At this point in the race, a bandwagon effect takes hold in all the undecideds: they want to go with the winner. It kills me to say it, but right now that looks like the effete, jug-eared mediocrity.
Not really if barry hasnt sold them yet he probably cant In a week they will be saying 47 is that the price of a gallon of gas 4.70
neverunderestimate the shallowness of the undecided
