Who are you talking to, Submitter?

Rasmussen, whoever the hell that is, is probably trying to make the Left think Obama is in a tight race.
Fox is clearly trying to frame Romney as "The Underdog".

Wake me when the October Surprise comes out.

i believe that's the billion dollars the koch brothers and karl rove have planned to spend to unseat obama. hardly a surprise though.

When you've painted your opponent as a traitor who is determinedly destroying America, and possibly the antiChrist, it's hard to follow it up with something that makes an impact.

Rasmussen is the most right-leaning poll out there. Showing a tie is bad for Obama, Romney

Even Gallop has Obama up 3 points. Priceless.

A bit of wisdom has been posted in previous poll threads, and needs to be posted in every one of these poll threads.

Ignore the polls until September.

I'll wait until Obama asks during the debates what he would have done differently with Obamacare since it was patterned after the Republicans' and Mitt's own plan. Then we can discuss poll numbers.

After seeing the first two I had to scroll down again to see Romney.

Half of the time Rasmussen's results can't even be verified. They're not so much a polling service as another republican propaganda resource.

THAT'S NOT HOW THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE WORKS!


National polls are a complete and utter waste of time. The fact that Obama is up and has been up in key swing states is what matters. Winning the swing states and losing the popular vote makes people question your mandate. Winning the popular vote and losing the swing states makes you not president.
 
2012-06-29 11:01:14 AM  
Keep in mind that Rasmussen has a 2-3 point house lead for Obama built into its polling.

I'd add Sheldon Adelson to that equation.

That does beget a question though - when was the last time a candidate won an election against an opponent with so much more money?

If Nate Silver isn't breaking a poll down with graphs, margins of error and about 10 paragraphs of historical analysis, it doesn't mean shiat.

My cousin had a puffer fish that died one winter. They set it on the back porch and forgot about it all winter. It is now a freeze dried display piece. I'd vote for that farking puffer fish before I'd vote for Romney, even at gunpoint.

As a person who doesn't support Romney at all, I find this to be evident.

Romney believes the rights to enact such sweeping regulations are for the states, not for the federal.
 
2012-06-29 11:11:21 AM  
Given the sound and fury (signifying nothing) over SCOTUS this week and last, it's a pretty stupid farking time to do a poll. Because people who are emotionally charged to vote or against are gonna feel a lot more lazy about the issue in five months.

And even then, the national percentage polls are useless. The only ones that matter are polls that count the electoral vote.

Rasmussen poll question: "So what is your opinion about our Kenyan in chief"

A) He's stupid
B) He sucks
C) He's arrogant
D) All of the above
E) I admit that I am stupid and like the president.

Rassmussen is always off about 3% favoring the GOP Party.

/last I looked, Nate Silver had Obama at 292 electoral votes, with Ohio going for Obama, Florida leaning less than before to Romney.

The problem is, he can't use that argument anymore. The Supreme Court showed the Feds *can* make such sweeping regulations.

... Okay, let me rephrase that: he can't *logically* make that argument. I will grant that he probably still *will*.
