How is this possible?

Most people I know made their minds up a long time ago.

I don’t know anybody, not anybody, who is “undecided”.

So Obama adding a pro gay marriage, pro taxpayer funded abortion on demand up to birth planks to the Democrat platform and denying God 3 times helped Obama with Catholic voters?

Anyone really believe that?

We are seeing why Gallup was number 18 in polling accuracy in 2008

Oh, but it’s only prenatal infanticide, so no big deal.

Some one wake me up. What gives for Obama’s sudden surge in poll numbers.

The Middle East is in shambles. And the economy is actually getting worse.

This is pure corruption of the media (driving the narrative) and the pollsters.

As Rush, said today. of course pollsters have a vested interest. They want Obama to win. Badly.

Every dirty trick in and not in the book will be used to insure that the Marxist is returned to office to complete the destruction of the USA. This is Chicago style on a world wide scale.

Obama leads among CINOs. He doesn’t do nearly so well among real, church-going Catholics.

Yeah I agree with Rush.

Up to 2007, the MSM was just biased.

In the Era of Baraq they have become part of the Democrat campaign (journ0list).

Doesn’t seem likely. Regretably, Romney does NOT offer a real pro-life choice against Obama, which weakens the case.

But he is at least marginally better. I don’t see how any decent Catholic could possibly vote for Obama, who sets no limits to his baby killing.

First of all -— National polls mean nothing. Zip, zero, nada. It’s only the state-by-state tallies that make a difference.

Second — who are all these “catholics” voting for Hussein? They must all be from San Francisco or Baltimore. i.e., queer wannabe-like-my-folks catholics, or my great-great-grandad had a grocery/restaurant in Lil-Itly catholics.

Yes, I use the small “c” on purpose.

its not possible...its fallacy...

there’s no way obozo wins the Catholic vote this time around...without naming names, and in some cases naming names, the Catholic church has been actively preaching against obama and his policies. from the pulpit since the summer- i’ve never seen anything like it...

True, but it was when he talked about not having his daughter punished that sealed the deal. He thinks your scared and will not stand up. He is punching as many people in the face at once because he begs for the fight, but he is desperate for the trigger. Like drawing the sword from the stone, I bet the trigger man is a noble humble mystery.

I think it’s time we admitted that the “47%” video has really hurt Romney. Denying it just prevents us from combatting it.

if you include all catholics including hispanics, however the issue is nonhispanic catholics. Still Obama is down by 2008 standards by about 3 to 5 points.

Well of course. The Pope has appointed Pelosi as bishopette of SF. The Catholic Church has also come out in favor of gay marriage and abortion so they could be in line with 0bama.

You can take all the apostate catholics and protestants and put them on a boat bound for hell. Unless they confess their sin and believe in the Jesus of the Bible, they are doomed along with the rest of the democrats.

It’s really all just propaganda.

Do this: look up swing state county GOP offices. Talk to the chairman. Tell him candidly your concerns for the country. Make a sincere offer to donate a few dollars.

Then ask him what he really thinks about the recent polls showing Obama winning.

You’ll find the conversation to be very enlightening.

For the record the Parish is conservative but if the Social Justice types peel off 30% of the Church going congregation, that is 30% too much.

I think I’d have to find a new church !!!
Of course the nuns in my school were all big Kennedy supporters, probably still would be even knowing of his adultry, womanizing, immoral antisocial behavior... and litte brother’s rape enabling, debauchery and murderous behavior... Go figure.

As a lifeling Catholic I have never seen a priest or anyone in the hierarchy making recomendations on anything in an election, until this year. Culturally, priests are not allowed to run for office, and are not encouraged to be political. But this time, it is different.

Liberal Catholics have lost their cover, they can't hide. They used to be able to split hairs like Kennedy, but that can't be done anymore. We have a ways to go as far as organizing and being more effective like the Tea Party, but the democrats have lost us. 2008 was the highest level of support they will get from us from now on, and it is down hill from there.

I know I’m out of line. Only God can judge the souls of men, but isn’t it frustrating when people leave their faith behind and vote for a party that voted God out of their platform, Is for preborn murder, and approves the destruction of biblical marriage? Can you really call yourself a Christian and vote for this party that is out to destroy any vestige of orthodox Christian thought? We will all be judged by what we did with the Word of God. “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of an angry God”

I would love to see O’s support among the following:

* all Catholics (box checkers)
* Catholics who attend mass at least monthly
* Catholics who attend mass at least weekly
* Catholics who attend mass at least weekly & confession at least monthly
* Catholics who attend mass more than weekly
* Catholics who attend the Traditional Latin Mass

I don’t know whats happening, anymore. It’s like the Twilight Zone. The worse the economy gets, the better obama does. He blatantly lies about a terrorist attack, and his poll numbers get better. He allows a terrorist attack, and he does better. The worse foreign affairs become, the better he does. He denies God, wants to force Catholics to provide birth control pills and abortions, the better he does with Catholics.

The only explanation I can think of is the media. They are determined to drag obama over the finish line ahead of Romney no matter what. And the vast majority of people still get their news from the lying, biased, media.

Romney is going to have to hit a bases loaded home run in the debate next week. And that will be very hard considering the moderators are far left wingers, and they will provide obama with all the questions beforehand so he will have all the answers well prepared.

Axelrod and Holder are turning the screws tight on Gallup.

Before Election Day Gallup will have Obama leading Romney among non-union white evangelical pro-life male combat veterans who support concealed carry and limited government.
