This headline made me sad because the puppeteer/voice for the Count recently passed away.


You may now commence discrediting whatever poll generated this result, as well as general Politics tab trolltastic threadshiatting.

I was sad about the Count also. He gave me many happy moments in my childhood.

Don't worry, conservatives, Dick Morris has the real poll numbers from the firm that will not be named.
 
2012-09-14 01:05:31 PM  
In fairness, only some of the bounce is attributable to the DNC.

The rest is based on how much of a retard Romney has proven himself to be this week.

Romney was a very good moderate, he could spin a tale that both conservatives and liberals would like. Ryan not so much. Much like Palin, he is far too divisive and far too dim to be much credit. My guess is he won't even help Romney get his home state.

The Republicans have a VP problem that need to get sorted out.

Geez, the GOP really has given up haven't they? They're already Palin-ing Ryan.

Meanwhile, someone is running around topics earlier today bragging about how Rasmussen shows the polling going from Obama +3 to Romney +3 since Romney criticized the President on Libya, gaining 6 points in 3 days which would be one of the most severe shifts in support this whole cycle if it didn't conflict with all the other polling.

What really happened: Rasmussen got nervous about Romney slipping behind and activated their GOP poll bonus system.

To be fair, this is an isolated poll, much like Rasmussen's wonky daily tracker swinging back toward Romney to the tune of +3.

On the other hand, all the other polls agree with Marist/NBC, Marist being a pollster that actually has been known to get the numbers right in the past, unlike Rasmussen.

In conclusion: Romney is getting raked right now. Clinton/Dole redux?

I disagree. In Ryan, the GOP got exactly what they wanted: an "intellecual" thar could pull the ole' pied piper move on the tea partiers, while also seeming normal enough to pull independants. Palin had no such substance or power of persuasion...

No, the GOP's problem is their prez candidate. Any semblence of moderation was shed mere days after the last election. He has spent the last 4 years trying to prove how yltra-super-conservative he is, that the result is the empty suit we see today. The last few mobtha it seems every tine Romney opens his mouth he drops a few points in the polls.

Thia recent libya thing has me sick to death with my party. Huntsman 2016 or bust!

It amazes me that people don't understand you need to look at an aggregate to get any kind of useful info from polls... Like a few weeks ago when one poll had Obama trailing Romney with women by 5 points. Every other poll had Obama with a lead larger than the margin of error, but what were all the talking heads jabbering about? That one poll.

Don't be so hard on Rasmussen. They bring their numbers in line 1 week before the election so they can say they had the numbers right.

The RCP average is pretty good but it is still within the margin of error considering the enthusiasm gap.

This shouldn't even be close. Romney is an awful candidate. The GOP has totally lost the plot. I hope they are taught a harsh lesson in these elections and that they'll learn their lesson and rebuild and give us a viable option in 2016 and beyond. Right now I couldn't vote for them even if Obama grew horns and a tail.

Sadly, they'll pick up some seats with Tea Party lunatics and the only message they'll take away is "Romney lost because he was too moderate. Release the Santorum!"

I'll wait until after the debates to see how that one settles. That October 3rd debate on Foreign Policy looms huge now for the Romney campaign. If Romney farks that one up, it's all over. If Romney does a Palin and (at least) looks respectable but still loses to Obama, they're still in with a chance.

Doubt that Obama will be anything but sharp as a katana blade for October 3rd; waiting to pounce on a Romney mistake/misstep.

That would make it much closer but it would be horrible news for Obama if the vast majority of independents voted for Romney. The sampling size in this poll is pretty disproportionate to the populace so it makes the entire thing sort of useless. Which is why I watch the aggregates.

You have an odd interpretation of that debate. Most people I know that were not in the tank for McCain felt that Palin came across as evasive and did a sort of folksy-biatchy thing to cover up for her lack of confidence and knowledge.
