guilt by association: Does Nate Silver still have access to the Obama campaign's internal polling?


I would assume so. That's the benefit of being thin and high voiced.

WombatControl:
Karl Rove was arguing that the Democrats are cannibalizing their Election Day votes while GOP early voters are getting new voters turned out. That could well be the case - and if so, that's not a positive sign for Chicago.

The Democrats always have a healthy lead in early voting - so that's not new or noteworthy. What does matter is the relative share of votes - and if Romney is closing the 2008 gap and doing better with independents than McCain did (by far!), it's hard to see how Obama can actually win without substantially improving his base turnout from 2008. And 2008 was probably a high-water mark for D turnout.

Ohio is definitely close, too close to call.

WombatControl: Oh, and the PPP poll is a weekend sample conducted the 26th-28th. Polls conducted over a weekend traditionally undercount Republican voters (who are more likely to be at church than responding to pollsters).


So weekday polls are more accurate because Republican voters.....are at home to answer the phone?

Drakin030: So if you have a poll that has a D sample of let's say +8 but the poll is tied, is that not reason to be concerned?

Basically someone saying "Yeah I'm a Democrat but I'm voting Romney"


What? No, the sample is not 50/50 dems/reps.

Just go to unskewedpolls.com. Its simpler.

tony41454: NOT SO FAST:
Rasmussen released its latest survey of battleground Ohio this morning. The poll finds Romney surging into his first-ever lead in the Buckeye state. He now leads President Obama by 2 points among likely voters, 50-48. Importantly, Romney's support has crossed the critical 50% threshold. It is generally difficult for an incumbent to climb back above 50% once they have relinquished it.
Romney's lead in Ohio is within the margin of error, so the context remains extremely close. With just over a week to go, both campaigns will contest the state aggressively. But, it seems the momentum may be moving towards Romney.

Not what the polls show, but hey, whatever.

And just what do you think Rasmussen puts out, candy? DERP.


yes

oren0: Jiro Dreams Of McRibs: When the Republican candidate OWNS voting machines, 4% is like a couple thousand code iterations.

Yeah, fraud. I said it. Voter. Fraud. Stolen. Election. SCOTUS. Just keep it close enough to look legit.

Turdblossom isn't gone away. He's just working behind the scenes.

Snopes.com, how does it work?


It is true that H.I.G. Capital's co-founder, Anthony Tamer, and several of H.I.G.'s managing directors once worked at Bain & Company (whose CEO was Mitt Romney); that Anthony Tamer and his wife are donors to the Romney campaign; and that H.I.G. Capital is the sixth-largest financial contributor to Romney fundraising committees; and it is true that Tagg Romney's firm, Solamere, has investments in other H.I.G. funds that are run by partners who are former Romney colleagues and current Romney fundraisers, and those partners also manage the fund invested in Hart Intercivic. That close a connection between the Romney family, Romney campaign contributors, and a provider of voting systems may raise some eyebrows, but it doesn't establish any direct ownership link between Tagg Romney and a provider of voting systems.

Thanks for clearing that up.

Polls are also more accurate when they don't include cell phones, because that is the tried and true model we've used for 50 years now.

Satanic_Hamster: machoprogrammer: You know what is going to happen on election day?

It is going to be real close, so close in fact that both candidates and their running mates get together and go on national TV. Each will give a speech. Then, during Romney's speech, Ryan is going to tap him on the shoulder, he will turn around, and Ryan is going to kick him in the stomach and give him a stunner. Obama will smile, and Biden will look confused. Then, Obama is going to go to shake Biden's hand, and turn it into a Rock Bottom. Ryan is going to do the face turn, while Biden is going to do the heel turn, and then it'll be a tag team match of Romney/Biden vs. Obama/Ryan for the presidency. And you don't want to know what'll happen during that.

No. Clinton and Gore are going to run in with steel chairs and take all of them out, all the while the King will be screaming into the mic "Clinton is back, Clinton is back!"


Now THIS I would tune in for!

Sybarite: Yes, I can clearly see how the many new and specific policy points illuminated in those debates could persuade 300,000 or so Ohioans to shift their preference from one candidate to the other.


Well Romney not being able to locate the country he plans to invade on a map might have swayed some people.
