(WBUR Boston)   New NPR poll has Obama up 7% nationally, and 6% in the battleground states. Obviously, NPR hates America and Romey really has a shot of winning in a landslide of patriotism   (wbur.org) divider line 133

Lieberal libtards and they're tard polls are what's destroying America. Vote Romney!

/am I doing it right?
 
2012-10-03 08:53:40 AM  
I heard this on the way home from work, a half hour ago.

Nice of them to make it look like Romney still might win. He won't.
 
2012-10-03 08:55:20 AM  
Romney does have a shot at winning. That's what all those ID laws were for. It's been obvious for some time that the republicans no longer have any chance in any national election because the teabaggers have dragged the party so far to the right that it's become toxic on a national level.

They could still because they're cheating, though.

This is why the GOP must outlaw public radio, to save us from partisan witch hunts like this.

RCP has Obama winning 269 electoral votes right now, or one short of the 270 needed to win. This means Romney needs to run the table of the toss up states: Nevada, Colorado, Iowa, Missouri, Virginia, North Carolina, and Florida.

7 for 7 can be done, but it's a tall order.

The politics tab is going to be flooded with troll alts.

Can I get a RINO RINO in here' ?

Whats the over under on it, after Romney sabotaged any chance by adopting crazy right wing talking points as policy and platform?

Whats more likely, no one ever sane running for this GOP ticket , or the elites and moderates clawing their party back from the radical fundamentalists and forming an American Tory like party?
 
2012-10-03 08:59:34 AM  
tonight is the big debate where Romney is going to wipe the floor with the teleprompter in chief, sorry libtards but the trend stops today!!! *smashes beer can on face*

THIS POLL IS CLEARLY INVALID SINCE IT DIDN'T PERSONALLY POLL ME OR ANY OF MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND WE ARE ALL STRONGLY AGAINST FARTBONGO THE KENYAN IN CHIEF GETTING REELECTED SO SUCK IT LIBS HA HA HA

I wonder at what point they can say democratic voters got "complacent" and "didn't show up to the polls" and all electronic voting went for Romney.
 
2012-10-03 09:04:11 AM  
Look at the biased lamestream media.

When you add 10 to Romney and take that away from Obama:

Date
Oct. 3, 2012

Obama/Biden: 43
Romney/Ryan: 55
 
2012-10-03 09:04:48 AM  
I suggest Fark Cons take the day off.

They will suffer from burnout tomorrow trying to defend Romney.
 
2012-10-03 09:05:11 AM  
A few other polls just yesterday showed some tightening in the national race even as swing state polls continued to show strength for Obama.

Link

At the same time, even Karl Rove's electoral college map show the strong+lean Obama states totaling over 270 EVs.

Considering that in North Carolina Obama has a twenty point lead in early voting, that is pretty much going to have to happen for Romney to win.

My prediction: Romney comes out spewing "zingers," only one or two of which are not non sequiturs. Conservatives spend the week high-fiving and claiming victory, rest of the country is confused and slightly annoyed.
 
2012-10-03 09:08:27 AM  
As much as I'd like to count my chickens before they come home to roost, maybe it would be more effective for Democrats to seize on the risk of a Romney victory to get the vote out. Even if President Obama was a shoe-in, a higher margin would be better than a lower one. Plus there's the congressional and senatorial contests.

I know alot of Democrats requesting their ballots early and voting, I dont think they are as complacent as people think.

Another Republican presidency should scare us all.

To be clear, that is not ACTUAL results, but a poll of people who say that will cast early ballots. Just trying to keep things in perspective and avoid overconfidence in folks.

I'm in NC and I will be voting early... and for Obama... I will also vote on Nov 6th.

FTFA: "When you sample voters over time, you inevitably get varying proportions of Democrats and Republicans in the sample. It's nothing nefarious, just the vagaries of sampling," Ayres said. "This sample ended up with seven points more Democrats than Republicans. In 2008, there were seven points more Democrats than Republicans in the electorate, according to exit polls. But in 2004, there were equal numbers of Democrats and Republicans."

Skewed, "scientific" polling techniques strike again.

within striking distance

*eyebrow raise*

These words.

Unless Obama eats kittens live on national teevee between now and November I don't think they mean what NPR thinks they mean.

Theoretically, in tonight's debate Mitt *could* come out from under his bushel and display the greatness he's been hitherto keeping under tight wraps while Obama, handicapped by a dearth of teleprompters (apparently Obama's version of kryptonite according to FOX News et al), *could* just stand there like a deer caught in headlights and drool for an hour.

Pretty sure that's what a lot of Republicans are hoping is gonna happen.

Pretty sure it aint.

Seeing as my state will be going Romney no matter what I do, I'm voting for Gary Johnson.


These debates are bullshiat until we get at least one third party in them.

FTFA: If this year's voters were to split evenly again between the two major parties, Romney would have an advantage. The NPR poll found him a 4-point favorite among independents.

Great... they're "unskewing" their own polls now.

Stupidity is contagious.

Yes, exactly. Not results, just intent.

Which is good- I think it speaks to a lack of enthusiasm for voting for Romney. But no overconfidence from anyone, please. Not voting is not acceptable.

ADP just released a favorable jobs report, something to the tune of 160K new jobs. Increases in Manufacturing and Construction as well. This should help Obama's polls. I hope it gets talked about at the debates tonight.

12% of the electorate is black. So I think you should always shift the polls by 12 points to reflect real America.

I'm thinking of doing the same thing, only in reverse. Electoral votes in my state are all but guaranteed to go to Obama. So I might vote for Jill Stein, to help the Green Party get matching funds for the next election.

So why aren't Gary Johnson and Jill Stein in the debates?
