What's worse is that Romeny seems to have bungled this too. He's actually IN Ohio campaigning today. The more he campaigns, and the more people get to know him, the more he hurts his chances. He should be stumping in Hawaii or something right now.

So this guy claims that polls are "skewed" because they don't conform to Rasmussen's demographics, and then post facto applies those demographic weights to other polls. Even if this were statistically valid (which it is not), one would expect him to include Rasmussen's polls in his reports, right? I mean, they have the Golden Truth from On High, the benchmark against all other polls must be judged and found wanting. Instead, he doesn't use them, because rather than showing his totally legitimate Romney +8 margin, they have it tied or Obama+1.

He's either a grifter or a junior College Republican economics major, and I'm leaning towards grifter.

Moosecakes: HMS_Blinkin: FTFA: "Mr. Obama has widened his lead over Mr. Romney and is outperforming him on nearly every major campaign issue, even though about half said they were disappointed in Mr. Obama's presidency."

Well? What did you THINK was going to happen when you picked an awful candidate/person for your nominee? Did you really think that "not being Barack Obama" would be good enough?

That crap might fly in small town mayoral races, but you gotta bring your A game to the big show.

The democratic party learned that lesson the hard way with Kerry. Now the GOP gets to learn that lesson. Somehow though, I think they're going to take away the completely wrong lesson and in 2016 the nominee will be Alan West.


That's exactly what they'll do! They'll say that Romney wasn't a true Conservative, and derp even harder for 2016. The only question is when the positive-feedback cycle ends. Sooner or later, they've got to realize that they're losing relevance, and there will be a pull back toward the middle. I personally think that it'll take one more election cycle for that to happen, unless Obama somehow manages to win 48 or 49 states. Since that won't likely happen, Republicans will fall back on the "not Conservative enough" derp and it'll be 2009 all over again, but derpier.

Cletus C.: These polls were conducted before Madonna threatened to get naked on stage if Obama wins.


Surprisingly, that is a very good point.

Superjew: Eh, they'll just send a bunch of staffers to bang on the county clerk's door for a while, whine about "chads" for a couple days, call Obama a "sore loser", then pay off Scalia with the traditional bag of human hearts and it will be all over for another 8 years like the last time.


Just like in 2008, eh?

This is bad news...for the Koch-suckers.

/they'll have to work twice as hard, and spend twice as much to disenfranchise even more voters, now.

It can only get worse for Romney after the debates.

natazha: Carn: I like how Florida and Ohio have 47 electoral votes between them.

Based on Sheldon Adelson's spending, that's only two million per electoral vote. He's willing to go higher.


I very much hope he finds that he's spent millions for nothing, and still ends up indicted for whatever the hell it is he's supposed to be indicted for. I don't remember what it was. Being a corpuscular gollum impersonator maybe?
