    I guess MSNBC is here to stay.

  • Ralph Hahn

    I had just posted this on the Monday board when told Tuesday is open….

    Just received a news alert from the New York Times that Obama is surging ahead of Romney in Ohio and Florida, based on a NY Times/CBS News poll. We shall see. Romney will wipe the floor with Obama at the debates unless the liberal moderators purposely trip up Romney with BS questions. AFTER the debates, I’ll take poll numbers seriously. The American viewing public will have no choice but to see Romney, because they rarely see much of him on lamestream TV unless their “story” is some lie made up by the Obama campaign. Then, you’ll only see selected clips of Romney in an unflattering way. I HATE when debate moderators and other questioners ask candidates about what the other camp charges, instead of asking, i.e., how they are going to fix the economy. We all saw plenty of examples of this during the Republican debates earlier this year.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Gone to the Tuesday board. If anyone wants to view the “cranky” guy, have your snot on the Tuesday page.

  • Sam

    It would be just a matter of time before Morning Joe beats Faux and friends .

  • Ralph Hahn

    Forget the above. It was meant to be published on the Monday page and it has been fixed. I tried to delete the above, but can’t.

  • Letmethink

    Early Start/Starting Point still hanging in at 200.
    Ralph, I posted a response to you on Monday. Briefly, I agree with you that Romney can do a good job debating but it is difficult to debate someone who is untruthful and deflects. obama is a master at both.
    Tenneble, if you are still with us, be safe and check in when/if you can.

  • Ralph Hahn

    You people trying to create an scenerio that MSNBC is leading FOX are just plain shameful. Fox News still leads in the demo in both Total Day and Prime Time. Not one show listed above bested Fox in the demo.

  • Letmethink

    Sam, why do you think Morning Joe will be FOX? They rarely get above 600 at best in total numbers. They are closer in demo–are you referring to those numbers?

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Letmethink: I agree. I think Obama utilizes BS quite well. But, the American people will see Obama stutter and stammer and try to sidestep the questions because he will not have a teleprompter with him.

  • Letmethink

    Ralph I have had the same thoughts. He is a great orator with a teleprompter but not too good extemporaneously.

  • Letmethink

    be^beat

  • Mark

    @Ralph

    I think Romney and Obama are both good but not great debaters, I am guessing the debates will come off rather boring given both guys debating style and nobody will get a big bump out of them.

  • Sam

    ————————————-Obama—–Romney——
    Rasmussen Tracking 9/24/2012 47 46
    Bloomberg 9/24/2012 49 43
    Gallup Tracking 9/24/2012 48 45
    _______________________________________________________

    Average = ……………………….. 48 …. 44.6….

    I mean … unless a disaster happens, Obama got this race.

  • Raz

    the ratings for msnbc are good, but fox is still better. That’s the one thing about competition, it will either make you wilt or grow stronger. Looks like fox stepping up to be stronger.

  • Sam

    @ Letmethink,

    “Sam, why do you think Morning Joe will be FOX? They rarely get above 600 at best in total numbers. They are closer in demo–are you referring to those numbers?”

    Yep the demo is what really matters. Morning Joe generally is very diverse and informative , although I hate how the righties in that program team against Mika and act disrespectfully toward her. But still it’s better than that disgusting program on Fox.

  • Moncon

    Debates will also depend on the moderator’s. They will question Romney on his 47% comment and not what will you do to create an environment for job growth for the 47%. I can see it already, they will deflect all important issues and stick with stupid fluff questions. Hopefully Romney will stay on task and give us his plan.

  • Moncon

    @ Boss1
    You and your family are in my thoughts.
    Take Care

  • Rich

    The sad thing about Fox News is that they have a disadvantage, because the majority of viewers are conservative, and not to many conservatives can get access to a television, since we have to work 2 to 3 jobs so we can pay our taxes and provide free cable for all you free loading liberials !!!!!!!

    Yeah if Romney give his typical, “Obama sucks, and I will do better” answer(without giving any hint what exactly he will do to be better) is a losing argument

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Mark: No, it won’t be a Lincoln/Douglas type of debate, but those who only watch broadcast network news will finally see Romney in a different light. Certainly not the way CBS, NBC and ABC have been painting him.

    @Sam: I haven’t always been honest with pollsters calling my home. This time, the American voter is smarter but has been seeing this race from one side too long. People hear that Obama is leading, so they’ll say Obama to pollsters. No one wants to admit that they voted for a loser. That’s why I don’t put too much credence in these early polls. Some people change their minds in a split second. We have six weeks left and a lot can happen in six weeks.
