Posted on 10/01/2012 9:25:30 PM PDT by Jyotishi
The final act of the presidential campaign opens today with two new polls showing the race between Obama and Romney tightening. New polls, released this morning, from ABC/WaPo and Politico both show Obama's lead nationally has been cut to two points, 49-47. Also, in both polls, Romney leads Obama among Independents by four points.
Obviously, if Romney is leading among independents by four, yet trailing overall by two points, both polls have probably sampled more Democrats. Indeed, the WaPo poll is D+5. This is a big improvement over past WaPo polls, which assumed that Democrats would have a bigger turnout than 2008's D+7 electorate....

I believe the tide is about to turn. Romney will come out swinging in the debates, and he will blanket the airwaves in October. Keep the faith!
I agree righty.
I don’t think there is a tide, I think Romney has been ahead ever since he won the nomination, all these polls are for show to try and intimidate pubs and to make dems feel better and deny the catastrophe ahead for them. Some of these lamebrain polls have Obama ahead more than he won in 08, that is just ridiculous garbage. Its all a dog and pony show put on by Pravda.
The clown is going down!
Whew some good news. T4P
Hopefully Romney can turn it around during the debates. However, you all get ready for all the media saying either Obama won or “it was a tie” and have their infamous polls and focus groups to back up their bullshit.
Thirded. Obama has never been challenged in a hard way. I believe Romney (who has been practicing for months) will come out swinging and Obama will snap back. He won’t seem like a “nice guy” at all in these debates.
Polls, schmolls. I’m tired of ‘em. Just go vote. And take 10 people with you!
The same WAPO poll tried to show Mitt losing the swing states. Jen Rubin got the internals and says all the negative swing state data was based upon 160 people. 1. 6. 0. And those were likely overweighted dem.
Yes, it’s turning now and it will worsen since fraud pollsters can’t fudge as blatantly 6 weeks out without ruining their reps.
Polls aside, Romney is still standing going into debates. Obie has conceded those because he knows he can’t credibly defend his record
Univision has the entire Mexican population asking WTF with Obie and now John Elway and other NFL owners are piling on.
The landslide has begun
We all know the media is dead in this country. They sold their souls to the devil a long time ago. I think the majority of Americans see the media now as another arm of the Obama Administration, they will do ANYTHING to get Obama re-elected. They see him as the one guy who can turn America into the Socialist Utopia they have always wanted. I even saw a statement from Communist Party USA(Gee you would think if they loved Communism so much they would move to Venezuela) that if Obama loses “their dream is lost as well.” Well gee wiz, thats the WHOLE FREAKIN POINT..we don’t want Communism in this country!!
I think Romney has been up in the polls since Day 1..just like another poll I saw today that shows Romney is leading with people who think he will do a better job handling the economy, so Im supposed to believe that those same people who think Romney will handle the economy better will somehow still vote for Obama..the pravda media must think we are all idiots
“the pravda media must think we are all idiots”
We should all be hoping that this shamless “in the tank for Obie” stuff with the NY Slimes will be the final nail in it’s coffin. Carlos Slim needs to call his loan. I’d like to see the Sultzberger’s go home in a barrel in my lifetime. It would be a premier event to see the “family” kick the snot out of Pinch for loosing their meal tickets.
Saw my first Romney ad on network primetime tonight. In Oregon! Woohoo!
Romney has some really good ads out—finally! The Leadership one that Hannity showed was excellent.
I actually saw the Rove map that had TN in PINK! Leaning Romney was the meaning. I will bet Rove his Net Worth where TN is leaning, he is ridiculous. TN will not vote democrat for President in my lifetime. Hell, Al Gore only needed TN to win, at least we were smart enough to see through that nut.
>> Obama has never been challenged in a hard way
The Leftwing media is a threat to our Liberty.
Oh so NOW we believe the polls because we like them? No wonder Conservatism is in trouble. Too many lurch from one conspiracy theory to another all the while do nothing of substance to promote conservatism.
> Oh so NOW we believe the polls because we like them?
Human nature, I think. This is especially evident among those rooting for their team in football and other sports.
so true. I’m not buying any of it... the only reason the ‘polls’ are closing is because they want to be able to widen them after the first debate to convince people that their eyes and ears are lying to them, that Obama won the debate and that everyone thinks so.
Only the swing states matter - the other states are already in their usual party columns.
In my political science class in college, our instructor told us that in national elections (president) that people vote more heavily on the domestic issues, such as the economy. If people would get a clue then they would see what a bad economy we have. Hopefully, and prayerfully, we can defeat this communist and his ilk.
Pray for America!!
There was that big a rally in 10 and I wasnt invited!! I was at the one in 09 . . .
(realistically I couldnt have come after 09)
The polls crack me up if you look at the latest Rasmussen poll it claims Obama is up 50 to 47 on Romney with leaders, but when you dig a little deeper it says: 43% of voters certain they will vote for Romney. 42% certain they will vote for Obama. Remaining 15% either uncommitted or open to changing mind, Among voters who are uncommitted to either of the leading candidates, just 10% believe the country is heading in the right direction. Only 24% approve of the way the president is performing his job.
The polls haven’t changed the sample model is the only thing that has changed.
Obama is still @ 45% when the polls are corrected for a Dems +.44% turnout model.
It will be a BIG WIN...
