We need to look at it this way. Given the overwhelming corruptness of thee media, Romney is only down a point or two down with 38 days to go. Not exactly out of it.
And he supposedly has a war chest he is ready to unleash (although it continues to be delayed for some odd reason).
But we will see. It is not over by any means. Down 2 is nothing. Reagan was down 12 or so in mid October.
Plus anecdotally I don’t see it. I dont see any Obama stickers, yard signs etc. I feel like I am in the Iraq watching Baghdad Bob on TV. Nothing seems true.
Ras is using a D+2.5 sample. Which is fair. Hey, if it is a R+2 turnout, we win big. Even with an D+2 turnout, historically we win.
That is so true. I was thrilled that Ryan was chosen but he does seem to be a ghost except for the announcement that he agrees with gays in the military. I just don’t understand why he is not slamming Obama every minute and instead seems to be saying he agrees with Obama on certain issues. Very weird election AGAIN. I feel like such a jerk for slamming Newt all those months during the primary. I wanted Santorum so bad that I helped let the worst guy in. If we could have Newt with Santorum as VP or even Ryan as VP, this election would turn out very differently. Lost opportunity again!
Because MSM twists Romney’s messages and blocks Ryan.
You have a Visa don’t you? Lol
“When are we going to stop using red for GOP and blue for DemCommies. Commies are RED, blood red”
The networks used to be inconsistent on this. I think it was CBS that had blue for Republicans a long way back.
I’m convinced they all agreed for R-Red D-Blue (1992?) to avoid the Red-Communist-Democrat association. A very subtle case of media bias which is now entrenched in the culture.
Rasmussen polls are volatile. Leads change very often and quickly. Romney will be at the lead soon.
Who won the independents on this and someone else posted that it was a tie as far as the swing states
According to Dick Morris RAS is +3 Dems and doesn’t Obama normally poll better on the weekend polls anyway
When leaners are factored in, the president leads Romney 48% to 47%. Leaners are those who are initially uncommitted to the two leading candidates but lean towards one of them when asked a follow-up question.
Factor this in with the big lead Romney has with indys and it is Romneys to lose.
“The problem is that Romney seems nowhere whatsoever.
Even Palin was far more visible than Ryan.”
That’s because the media thought they could easily make fun of Palin, and giving her wide exposure would hurt McCain with swing voters.
Ryan’s much harder for them to caricature, so they try to ignore him instead.
All this “visibilty” stuff is totally MSM driven. Even if Romney is giving great speeches in front of big rallies, people don’t SEE them.
And? We all knew that from day 1 and if Romney did not understand the mnedia was going to do this and go all in for O-thug than its even worse than i think.
Romney is running an awful campaign. I will vote for him like my life depends on it, but please - the media is not the only reason he is behind.
Whoever is running his campaign is doing him a huge disservice w this panzie A$$ approach.
In the immortal words of one wag from Don Imus' radio show: "Jerry Sandusky will be a special guest on Sesame Street before Newt Gingrich is ever elected president."
...and why is that? I seen an article yesterday that was talking about Romney’s fundraising effort to try and close the $$ advantage for Obama. I thought Mitt had a huge war chest!!!
Where the heck is all his $$$$ going!
Folks, the margin of error is +/-3%. This means in statistical terms an O45 R47 poll is same as O47 R45.
We freepers really need a stat 101 course.
This is a robo call poll not an actual poll .
These polls are useless in the age where no one has a landline anymore and cell phone blocking is the norm.
Who is Ras connecting with using robo calling ?
A very skewed demographic which is heavily poor and Dem.
I keep hearing the pundits and pollster guessing the turnout will be like 2008 or 2004 or something else?
Polls based on a guess are useless.
2012 is like nothing else thanks to cell phones
If someone can verify something I saw a few weeks ago I’d appreciate it. Rasmussen himself gave a statistic that really nullifies this poll, and decimates the other highly skewed polls: Voter Registration at the end of August this year has a clear Republican advantage of 4%. I’d read that in 2010 the Republican advantage was 1.3% and it was pure devastation for Democrats at every level - national and state. If that 4% advantage to Republicans in party voter registration is true, then none of these polls showing anything like an Obama advantage can be taken too seriously.
