    Then you see the Rasmussen number. This is another little hidden thing. You know, the Drive-Bys discount Rasmussen because he’s on Fox a lot, and they think Rasmussen is a conservative poll and therefore he’s not qualified. He’s not legitimate. They look at him the way we look at their polling. Except Rasmussen happens to be always in the top five and often at the very top in accuracy predicting presidential results.

    This thing dribbled out yesterday morning: 43% certain to vote for Romney, 42% certain to vote for Obama, 15% uncommitted. The Drive-Bys have told us that it is so bad for Romney in Ohio that the only chance he’s got there is to change committed Obama voters’ minds. ABC has a story out today that’s quite conflicting, and they’ve had to change their headline about this story.

    It says two to one people think Obama’s gonna win, but in their poll it’s very close. Two to one Obama is gonna win the election! Two to one Obama’s gonna win the debate! But in the poll, it is tightening. Then there’s USA Today, and this is the enthusiasm gap. This is along the lines of how the media are oversampling Democrats. And have you noticed, by the way, the now predictable line: “Well, that means that they’ve lost, if Limbaugh and these people are now complaining about the polling.

    “You only do that when you lose. When you know you’re losing, that’s when you complain about media bias. When you complain about polls and the sample, that’s how they tell us that they know they’re losing.” That’s what’s being said about us. They can’t get it through their heads that I don’t think we’re losing, and I don’t think we’re going to lose. This is simply where we are documenting what is unprecedented in this country.

    “Rich and Poor, Male and Female: What Groups Would Thrive Under Obama or Romney.” But buried 13 paragraphs into the 16-paragraph USA Today story was this detail. Quote: “Republicans have opened a big enthusiasm gap. Sixty-four percent say that they are more enthusiastic than usual about voting compared to 48% of Democrats.” Now, folks, I did the numbers. I ran the numbers on that. I got out a calculator, and I subtracted 48 from 64.

    You know what I got? I got an enthusiasm gap of 16% pro-Republican, and that’s in paragraph 13 of the 16-paragraph story in USA Today. “Sixty-four percent of Republicans say they are more enthusiastic than usual about voting,” which makes perfect sense, “compared to 48% of Democrats.” That’s a huge story. But USA Today and Gallup don’t think it’s that newsworthy and they don’t seem to think they should sample Republicans accordingly.

    If there’s a 16% enthusiasm gap that your own poll turns up, what are you doing sampling Democrats plus-nine or plus-ten? Anywhere! Ohio, Florida, what have you. Now, let’s go back to 2008. Back in 2008, Gallup had no problem whatsoever reporting to the world the huge enthusiasm gap that the Democrats enjoyed back then. From Gallup, October 13, 2008, four years ago:

    Debate Preview: Obama Will Lie

    RUSH: So here we are on October 1st, and the incumbent president is at 47% approval. There is no poll that shows Obama at 50% approval. And, folks, that means as much historically as any other poll with any detail. When the incumbent is at 47%… Even in the Public Policy Polling poll out of Ohio, he’s at just 49%. That number is amazing when you find out that 48% disapprove of Obama in that state. But I think they’ve given up North Carolina and they’ve given up Indiana. The states are dropping one by one.

    Obama = 50
    Romney = 47

  • Coffee Steve

    @MattFitz

    Never has the amount of venom and hate been so apparent in my 50 years of life

    politics this is only cause of his race

    Lets re-cap the 8 years of Bush

    He’s stupid
    They made a movie of him getting shot (no outrage)

    He’s ignorant

    just a few… I could post 10 pages worth

    Now the fact that President Obama, whom I do respect as a man and as my President hasn’t done a very good job, could that be a reason some are wanting a change? would it?

  • Coffee Steve

    @Ratboy
    You still haven’t sited any examples of my hate speech.

    You called me dumb once :P

  • DB

    Edith pls go back to Archie!!!

    Mattfitz, seek help and maybe you will be able to realize at some point that what you say about Sicilan Papa is terribly twisted by your own political beliefs. You may have lived 50 years but haven’t matured much. Besides showing us SP’s hateful posts ( which don’t exist) pls give us your opinion of Jeffie’s posts which truly are hate filled and vile. Maybe you see only what you want to see whether it exists or not. Your kool aid is a little stronger than most.

  • Mark2

    Obama has made plenty of changes.

  • DB

    Mark 2, thanks for posting the Rasmussen poll, its only been sited about a million times already, Try to keep up.

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    Mattfitz

    You sound very angry. Yes I play hardball politics mixed in with some humor and good will. Hey, if you don’t like my criticism of the media and the President that is too bad.

    People come on here all the time and say unflattering things about Repubs. and conservatives. We don’t consider them haters.

    Maybe you should switch to an entertainment site or a site that takes about taking care of babies in their first three months. Those sound like non-confrontational sites were you wouldn’t here things you don’t like.
