Obama's humiliation: Romney scores 52-point debate victory - the BIGGEST in Gallup poll history
dailymail ^ | 10 8 12

Posted on 10/08/2012 2:24:27 PM PDT by InvisibleChurch

Mitt Romney won the first presidential debate by a whopping 52-point margin according to Gallup - the most resounding margin since the polling giant began tracking debates 20 years ago.

The stunning judgement on the debate came as a bombshell Pew national poll put Romney four points ahead of President Barack Obama by 49 to 45 points - a huge swing of 12 points from mid-September, when Pew found Obama leading by 51 to 43 points.

In Gallup debate results published today, three times more people thought Romney did a better job than Obama in last week's so-called Duel in Denver presidential debate. The poll about the Wednesday night's debate in Denver, watched by 67 million people, was conducted on Thursday and Friday. Of those who watched, 72 per cent thought Romney did a better job compared to 20 per cent for Obama.

Meanwhile, the respected Pew Research Center reported the most dramatic shift in a national poll during the entire general election campaign, with Romney’s fortunes improving in almost every respect. The center reported also pulling even with Obama on 46 per cent among registered voters and taking the lead by three points among likely voters.

Obama has conceded he is simply ‘a performer’ by his remarks to fellow leftist actors.

Finally, the truth is out!!!

Good news, indeed. If polls such as Pew, which tends to lean left (but is often fairly accurate) has Romney leading, he is probably doing much better, were the truth be told.

20% are “Obama phone” losers or Communist agitators like Obama and his SEIU brothers. In other words if Obama peed his pants and cried like a girl he still would have won.

I was hoping the first black President would be a Jackie Robinson figure. Instead, we got Marv Throneberry.

I agree.

Chris Matthew's meltdown suprised me. I expected him to spin it like Al Sharpton who claimed B. Obama won.

All this really proves is that Romney is a racist and that the Black Man just can’t catch a break.

These debates are racist. The disparate impact is palpable. There must be remediation.

But ... but ... Romney is the one who can’t “connect” with voters. And Obama is a master orator who makes William Jennings Bryan look like a stutterer! How can this BE???

Lord Obozo as the head of the Chicago Mob controlling America is not a nice guy nor a smart guy. He is an equal opportunity Oreo thug in a job, he should not be in!

Barack Obama has been savaged over his performance in last Wednesday night‘s presidential debate, with one commentator even suggesting that he was less effective than the hapless Jimmy Carter.

As Clint noted, the Empty Chair improved by codetoad:

ROMNEY LOST THE DEBATE! OBAMA IS IN CONTROL!


It is past time to fire Barack, his empty chair and empty promises and have all of them hit the road back to Chicago!

So hit the road Barack and take your empty chair, empty suit and empty promises with you!

Dems won't make the same mistake in the next debate. Who wants to bet Obama's team has a copy of the questions before the next debate - or if not the exact questions - a nice outline.

MSM whores are predictable - everyone of the moderators IS a liberal supporting Obama. They are on Obama's side. They will ask the questions they believe will help Obama - and ones they feel will hurt Romney.

It wouldn't matter, Obama can't even remember the facts without a teleprompter.

Al Sharpton expects to have to lie to make a point.

Meth-ew's world is built solely upon delusion. The slightest upset will tilt it all out of balance.

“Implications”?

Obama doesn’t even think using words that long. They have to appear on the teleprompter.
