  • Romney up two among likely voters in Gallup, now leads in RCP poll of polls (However... see below)

    10/09/2012 1:36:15 PM PDT · by TBBT · 15 replies ^ | 10/9/2012 | Allahpundit
    Key footnote: According to Gallup, after losing his five-point lead last week, Obama’s back out to a five-point lead in their daily tracker over the past 36 hours. That’s the first — and so far only — data I’ve seen suggesting that Romney’s bounce might not be durable, and even that could turn back around if Ryan cements Mitt’s Denver thrashing of O with another clear win on Thursday.

    The Obama campaign is running a television ad showing three convicted Wall Street bankers who are supposed to represent the greed of Republican party, because Presidential nominee Mitt Romney wants to cut the subsidy that goes towards the Public Broadcasting Service, which airs the children's television program "Sesame Street. However, all the bankers mentioned in the ad:Ken Lay, Dennis Kozlowski, and Bernie Madoff were all at least indicted and or prosecuted for their crimes by the George W. Bush Justice Department: Link to Obama ad on YouTube.

    - Obama believes he'd got the better of Romney as he walked off stage to the dismay of his aides, according to a Democrat close to the campaign - The President failed to prepare properly, opting instead to visit the Hoover Dam the day before the showdown - Democrat claims he was so disdainful of Romney that he didn't think he needed to even engage with him - Had one-liners on 47% prepared but chose not to use them watching his debate against Mitt Romney already knew it had been a disaster for him.

  • Black Actress Dash can’t back Romney but Obama can own Hollywood

    African American actress Stacy Dash has formally endorsed Mitt Romney for President. The actress tweeted that Americans should “Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future.” This simple statement set off an angry firestorm of complaints on the Internet. Liberals denounced her for not being “black enough,” hurled vile insults at her and some even recommended that she kill herself.

    The world is slowly returning to its proper axis after being out of kilter for a while. San Francisco is once again the best team in the NFL. The Chicago Cubs lost 100 games. Hockey players are locked out, causing the fourth work stoppage in 20 years. NBC is the number one TV network again. Nucky Thompson [1] is back and is as slimy as ever. And Nicholas Brody [2] has also returned, teasing us with the prospect that he really isn’t an American terrorist, just some poor, misunderstood Muslim convert who may be the next vice president of...

    Chuck Todd appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe earlier today to discuss Team Obama strategy — and perhaps staffing — in the wake of their debate debacle. Six days later, not only is the Barack Obama campaign still talking about the debate, they’ve released an ad about perhaps the least important issue mentioned in it … Big Bird. Instead of changing the subject, they’re continuing to extend the damage, and Mike Barnicle asked Todd about their strange obsession with the debate rather than finding anything else to discuss. Todd agrees, and says that “Chicago” may be making some personnel changes in...

A key swing group making up nearly a third of voters, independents favor Romney over Obama 52%-34%. In 2008, Obama had a 52% to 44% edge among independents. Romney also has a 54% to 38% advantage among men voters, a group Obama won by one percentage point in 2008. Intensity among Romney voters has...

    The Washington Times ^ | October 9, 2012 | Dave Boyer
    Mitt Romney's strong performance in the first presidential debate may have put Pennsylvania back in play, and closed the gap with President Obama in other battleground states. A Siena Research Institute Poll on Tuesday showed the Republican nominee trailing Mr. Obama by only three percentage points, 43 percent to 40 percent, in the Keystone State. Other polls prior to the debate had shown Mr. Obama with as much as a 12-point lead. "Pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes suddenly appear to be up for grabs," said poll director Don Levy. "Romney not only has Republican support but now leads in vote-rich areas...

    Fox News ^ | 10/09/2012 | By Wayne Allyn Root
    Yes, you read that headline correctly. I am a Las Vegas oddsmaker (and former Libertarian vice presidential candidate) and here's why I am so boldly predicting a Romney landslide. In November of 2004, only days before the presidential election, I went on CNBC and predicted a Bush victory by 3 points and 30 electoral votes. Every poll at the time showed Kerry in the lead. Bush won by 3 and 35. Newsmax magazine called it the most accurate prediction of 2004. In October of 2006, I went on Fox News to predict the GOP would get slaughtered in the midterm...

    We'll have plenty of poll data today, and most of it looks impressive for Mitt Romney --- including one from a surprising source, which I'll get to later today. Rasmussen's swing state poll might be the most crucial for looking at the swing in the race since the debate, since Romney hasn't had a lead in the eleven-state survey since September 19th. Today, however, the poll shows a five-point swing since yesterday and has Romney up three, 49/46: The full Swing State tracking update offers Rasmussen Reader subscribers a combined view of the results from 11 key states won by...

    Washington, D.C. (API) - In the event that President Barack Obama is not reelected on November 6th, one million slackers will march on Washington, D.C., according to Slackers for Obama founder Brian Ross (not to be confused with the ABC newsman of the same name).Slackers for Obama is a nationwide group of un- and underemployed men and women committed to the policies of the President. Among other things, their manifesto calls for free entertainment, the abolition of private property rights and the retroactive abortion of political opponents in an effort to create a more fair and just society.

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | 10/09/2012 | Rasmussen Reports
    Tuesday, October 09, 2012 In the 11 swing states, Mitt Romney earns 49% support to Obama’s 47%. One percent (1%) likes another candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided. This is the first time Romney has led the daily Swing State Survey since September 19. Until today, the president had led for 17 of the previous 19 days, and the candidates had been tied twice. This survey is based on findings from the previous seven days, with most of the responses now coming since Romney’s debate win last Wednesday night. Forty-six percent (46%) of these Swing State voters are now...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 10-8-12 | Hugh Hewitt
    Mitt Romney has done it now. He has attacked the Left where it lives -- on PBS and NPR. Mass-attending Catholics rightly perceive that President Obama launched a direct attack on their church. Their bishops have informed them. Evangelicals and other people of faith have mobilized to support Catholics against the Obamacare regulations that will oblige Catholic hospitals, schools and human welfare agencies to close rather than provide the morning-after pill, sterilization, and other drugs and procedures prohibited by Catholic doctrine. Catholics are angry, and they will vote that anger in key swing states like Ohio, Wisconsin, Florida, Virginia, Iowa...

    "I know the president hopes for a safer, freer, and more prosperous Middle East allied with the United States. I share this hope. But hope is not a strategy." So said Governor Mitt Romney in a fine foreign-policy speech at the Virginia Military Institute on Monday. The sentiment encapsulates both the substantive promise and the political peril of Mr. Romney's alternative to President Obama's foundering foreign policy. Because the Obama campaign has located the vast reserves of chutzpah required to paint Romney's foreign-policy team as novices, and because the media has let them get away with it, Romney had...

    President Obama and the press keep saying Governor Romney's goal of revenue-neutral tax reform is vague on specifics and arithmetically impossible, citing a flawed study from the Tax Policy Center that has been debunked by several economists, including Harvey Rosen of Princeton University.Here is what the director of the Tax Policy Center, Donald Marron, had to say about a tax reform proposal that is nearly identical to Romney's: President Obama's National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform and the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Debt Reduction Task Force (on which I served) both endorsed this strategy [of lower marginal tax rates...

One percent (1%) prefers some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided. Romney’s support is a bit more solid than the president’s at this point in time. Forty-five percent (45%) of voters are “certain” they will vote for Romney and not change their minds. Forty-one percent (41%) are certain they will vote for Obama.
