New USA TODAY/Gallup Poll: GOP regains enthusiasm edge. 64% of Reps are more enthusiastic than usual v. 48% of Dems. http://usat.ly/QyKk3a (Link goes to USA Today/ Gallup poll results. Enthusiasm gap buried in article.)
I searched your post for logic and found none, but I am going to keep it in my ping history so that I can look at it the day after the election and LMAO.
You have no idea who is volunteering for the Romney campaign.
If New Jersey voters are fighting alligators to get to the polls then we have more of those dual voters to weed out down here. LOL
In reality, here is the progression of the Grand Finale Shuck and Jive Show without the Greek Columns but instead wound up with the Russian ships and Turkish fighter jets.
134,000 seating capacity at Charlotte Motor Speedway (no longer a Lowes title sponsorship)
74,000 seating capacity at (New Black) Panther Stadium (it is really Bank of America Field)
20,000 seating capacity at the round ball court. And they had to let in regular people off the street while locking out some of the delegates because they were late stumbling in from some watering hole at the same time, just to fill it up.
But, but ... Romney’s toast!
Heck, that was probably half media.
Yes. The pollsters want to keep their jobs, no mystery there.
I wonder that too friend. I personally have been getting so many calls from 1-800 and 1-888 and 1-202 and every other area code and simply ignore them then set them as a new contact w/silent iPhone ringtone naming them Nope, uh uh, crap, lemmelone, crap 2, stop bothering me, on and on etc!!!
Now I don’t have any idea if these are pollsters or people wanting money from me and that’s the beauty of cell phones even tho theyre allowed to harass me now it’s gonna be only one time from that particular number.
Guess my point is that there are people like me multiplied beyond measure. What kind of personality wants to talk to pollsters? I don’t have time for that nonsense, even if I had nothing to do
Which is where it should be, as the 2010 tsunami recedes -- slightly -- and the electoral map sets up like 2004 but with GOP-favored reapportionment. On paper, it's an easy win (see below), the hard part is pulling it off with Mittens.
[In the area where I live you saw tons of bumper stickers and yards signs around here for the one in 2008, but, this year it seem his supporters are all in hiding.]
Of course they are. Nobody wants to admit they support a centralized government using it’s power to steal the fruits of their neighbor’s labor and to give it to them.
BTW, R+19 enthusiasm gap on eve of 2010 midterms... if that continues through election day, it will not even be close.
1. It's still many weeks until the election.
2. So they can change the good news to bad at the most opportune time.
This story of voter enthusiasm is one example, the story about Romney being in front with so-called independents is the other main one.
As we get closer to November, the media will gleefully report that our enthusiasm advantage is GONE and that Romney's lead among "independents" is GONE too. Merely reporting constantly that Republican voter enthusiasm is low will of course have the desired effect of lowering it.
They can't claim that those things (enthusiasm, etc.) have shrunk unless they admit they were higher to begin with.
We'll have free and fair elections again in this country just as soon as the media goes up against the wall and gets what they deserve.
No, it’s OVER! All over, just give up now, the Clinton bounce Obama got has finished Romney for good. Barack will get 40 states and 400 electoral votes, at least!
This makes zero sense if you believe the polls
The future of the country is at stake, and that’s your response, newb?
“I cant remember which FReeper posted it but the Kenyan team ran ads on Craigs list hiring people to infiltrate the forums.”
Several of us have posted employment ads for “Internet Activists” since November of last year.
I actually know a woman doing Democrat push-polling out of a boiler room in Phoenix, under the cover of “Consumer Research”.
The polls have skewed samples. If I had to bet money, I’d take Romney for the win(not in a landslide, but enough to get over the finish line).
Okay, keep drinking the “Romney is the new Reagan and anybody who tells the truth is an Obozo supporter” koolaid.
The Pro-Romney Anti Obama voters are stoked! The real question is “DO OBAMA VOTERS EXIST?” Barely. We spent all day yesterday canvassing Clark County Nevada neighborhoods in pairs doing “voter identification” polls. In plain clothes and armed with a clipboard. We ask just 2 questions- 1. Are you going to vote for Mitt and the republicans this election? and 2 If yes, do you want an Absentee ballot. Things are decidedly Pro-Romney (8-1) when you talk to actual voters. And they want to cast their votes IN PERSON. They are totally paranoid about their votes not getting counted in the election. No Obama signs either, but we did see Romney signs.
Give details on Clark County-—is it th main county, %D, and so on.
I think Romney’s “baby girl” ad is extremely effective, and very well tailored to women.
Yep. Every election cycle they come around. They think they are so clever that we don’t know that they are spammer trolls.
It is pretty laughable that the guy who has been around for 5 months is telling 10 and 12 year Freepers about “purges.”
And another 4 years of the incredible fail Obama would be better, EXATCLY HOW??
It’s been that way for months. You look at the internals of the polls, and Romney gets 90% of R’s, 15% of D’s, and leads independents by at least 6 points. They have to do some statistical juggling to make a 0 lead out of that.
If there is enthusiasm for Zero, they are doing a smashup job of hiding it. In a recent visit to Seattle, I saw not one yard sign, even on the corners were several were lined up. You wouldn’t know he was running. I saw two ‘12 bumper stickers the whole time I was there.
“Rising GOP enthusiasm could be a Tea Party backlash against media-driven poll reporting meant to depress turnout/support for Romney.”
From your lips to god’s ears!!!!
If Romney was up 10, I’d be enjoying the Sunday and not freaking out over the future of this once-great nation, about to go down the drain under Obama 2.0.
Only, a 16% difference? The GOP should be doing much better than this!
My view is that negative media coverage of Romney triggered Obama’s recent rise in the polls. I don’t think, barring game changing events or gaffes, the media can sustain that throughout the remaining days until the election so the numbers normalize back to an equilibrium.
“I addressed a TEA party group in New Jersey this past week and people are ready to crawl through broken glass and fight alligators to get to the polls.”
The broken glass is the daily deluge of biased media garbage and the alligators are the leftist Obama supporters.
Fight them both, Vote Straight Republican, Save the Country.
Clark County is Las Vegas, the one big D influence.
Sorry to bug you with so many questions, but what about your own “anecdata” as a worker in Ohio? How are you seeing with enthusiasm vs 2008? Surely you must’ve had some red flags in 2008, in retrospect...
That is just amazing for Clark County! Did you work in 2008? If so, how is it compared to 2008?
“Okay, keep drinking the Romney is the new Reagan and anybody who tells the truth is an Obozo supporter koolaid.”
No, the idea is to get that Muslim Socialist out of office before he completely destroys the country. You seem to be having some comprehension problems about what is going on. Mitt Romney is our best hope do to so.
“Mitt Romney is our best hope do to so.”
Yeah, a pathological liar who invented ObamaCare is the last hope to reverse ObamaCare and the lying liars who instituted it on the federal level. What great chances we have!
Who are the FR50?
I look at bumper stickers.
In 2008, September-October, Obama stickers were everywhere.
Today, I hardly see them.
I don't see many Romney/Ryan stickers either, but I don't think that's significant. Romney voters probably don't want to have their cars keyed.
“Folks, please tell me what, besides all these polls, is making any of you get a gut feeling that Obama is going to win?”
That’s absolutely right; there is no reason for (most) people to vote for Obama, and many reasons to vote against him.
“The old saying that people vote with their pocketbooks is as true to today as it ever was.”
That’s right, and if it any indication Obama will go down in flames.
“Because Im not hearing it, Im not feeling it, and I see no enthusiasm for Obama at all.”
That’s right; even in Newark NJ there is little enthusiasm for Obama.
There is no Palin to distort things this time---by that I mean that she evoked huge enthusiasm on our side but from a somewhat narrow demographic. People mistook that for Obama-type widespread R support.
at ny rate, I don't see a great deal of "love" out there for Romney, but I see NONE for Obama, even among the "yuts" but I do sense---and It's only a sense---that there is a real fear and even hatred of Obama on our side and except for SEIU types, there is no excitement about Obama. More like apologetic support.
Interestingly enough, I've seen only two Obama yard signs in the neighborhoods I drive through. Both of them disappeared after a couple of weeks. It could be vandalism, but political vandalism is usually done by Democrats, not to them. I am hoping they disappeared because their neighbors told them what idiots they were for supporting Obama.
On the other hand, there are quite a few Romney/Ryan yard signs, and the number keeps growing.
This is a great link to have: showing that in 2008 the “enthusiasm gap” was weighted in exactly the opposite direction as today’s. Thanks!
In Indiana, that the chair won by 130K votes in 2008, I have seen no Obama yard signs at all. In 2008, I saw a few in a heavily republican area. None today. I do see a couple of Obama bumper stickers but these cars are driven by blacks (surprise surprise).
Enthusiasm for the chair is way down from 2008. Here in Indiana and nationwide. He is in trouble, big trouble folks.
I live in NYC area and lower westchester which was Obamamania 24/7 2008 like you would not believe.
Now - I see literally nothing at all. Maybe a bumper stic ker every now and then, but there is NOTHING.
No yard signs, no banners, ZILCH!
Same story in Brooklyn.
It’s so crazy being in NYC and it’s like we don’t even have an election Coming at all.
And CNN/ORC poll says it`s a tie...LOL that`s why I laugh at everybody that believes there is any legit science in political partisan polling...JUST BLOWS MY MIND
Speaking of polls, polls are already done that says Obama won Wed debate.
That`s right Obama has won the debate before it has began, according to MSM polls, where most Americans still get their news, we are doomed. The masses are still guided by MSM, even with internet/talk radio etc
