Pollster Pulls Out of Fla., NC and Va., Says Obama Canít Win There
The Hill.com ^ | 10/10/12 09:58 AM ET | By Jonathan Easley

Suffolk University pollster David Paleologos, whose polls are aggregated into mainstream averages to show where the presidential race stands in the swing states, said he’s finished polling in Florida, North Carolina and Virginia because President Obama has no shot of winning those states.

“I think in places like North Carolina, Virginia and Florida, we’ve already painted those red, we’re not polling any of those states again,” Paleologos said Tuesday night on Fox’s "The O’Reilly Factor." “We’re focusing on the remaining states.”

Mitt Romney has spiked in the national polls since his first debate last week against President Obama. Romney took the lead over Obama nationally for the first time all year on Tuesday.

Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly seemed perplexed, and asked Paleologos if he was certain those three states were already in the bag for Romney.

“That’s right, and here’s why. Before the debate, the Suffolk poll had Obama ahead 46 to 43 [in Florida] in the head-to-head number,” Paleologos responded.

“A poor place to be for a couple of reasons. Number one, his ballot test, his head-to-head number was below 47 percent before the debate, and it’s very, very difficult when you have the known quantity, the incumbent, to claw your way up to 50. So that was a very, very poor place for him to be.

“So we’re looking at this polling data not only in Florida but in Virginia and North Carolina and it’s overwhelming,” Paleologos concluded.

Could this be another ploy to keep Republicans at home, thinking “we have it in the bag?”

They aren’t giving up on Obama/Biden this early? Maybe they think they are losers!

Thanks for this article... forwarding it to my mom who has been bamboozled by Muslimstream media into thinking it’s all over for Romney...

It would be if you owned a polling company that you were willing to throw away in failure when the person you declared the foregone winner ends up losing.

I find this perplexing - things do happen at the last minute. I heard the results of local polling today (NC) and it was Romney by 10 and McCory by 17.

Republicans will walk on hot coals and crawl on broken glass to kick obama out of the White House. No way... most Republicans are just waiting to drop the hammer on November 6. I am no longer a Republican (I am a Conservative) but I will be at the polls when they open.

Lots of people are tired of someone looking them in the eye and telling lies. The MSM has also looked at us and pretty much said “we can lie and get away with it.” You are too stupid to know we are all big liars here at MSM.

If most folks are like me, voting that maggøt out of our WhiteHouse is WAY more than a political statement.

It's personal - I loathe the racist marxist puke - and will try to be first in line at my precinct for the sheer JOY of punching  NØ !

They (enemedia) are a dying industry with low revenues and a 9% approval rating. obama is going into retirement and America has no tolerance left for lies from either party.
