    PA SHOCK POLL: R 50% O 46%…

  • Babygate

    Well, this is awesome but the reality is that these numbers are inflated because of the election. Let’s see what they look like in December. Still, Fox beats them all combined…

    Pension Envy: Who Has More—Obama or Romney?

    @Matthew: Couldn’t find that book review story, but I had written: “If this book is credible,…” Somethings come up on major news outlets that sound so incredible, but I wouldn’t completely rule anything out if there “could” be some truth from it from more than just one source.’

    At least we finally got the government to admit it was WE, the USA who were using flying saucers around 1947.

    Plus Obamas pension does include investments in the Caymans and China!! OOOOOPSY!!

    @Ratboy

    I watched the Five today while I was stuck in Tuesday

    It was good. First thing off the bat they brought up the latest Gallop poll.

    From Bob B after a few shock looks, “if it is true it is over”

    He looked lost for the rest of the show.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Papa and Ratboy: Last I looked, the Yanks were going into the top of the eighth, trailing Detroit 7-1. This MAY be the last time you’ll see A-Rod in a Yankee uniform even though he has been benched.

    Good riddence!

  • Mark

    Good news bad news day for polls for each guy

    Good News for Romney

    Gallup +7, Rasmussen +2, IBD Even

    Good News for Obama

    in Ohio
    NBC +8 Survey USA +3 Rasmussen +1

    Wisconsin
    NBC +6

    Iowa
    NBC +8

    Looking at current polls I can see a case where Obama wins electoral college, Romney wins popular vote.

  • Ratboy

    @ usnretiredx2

    I am not saying it is over but I thing the fat lady is tuning up! I just dont see the debate this week giving Obama any bump back and The ball seems to be rolling a little to fast for the debate to stop it. Now if Romney goes belly up on Monday it might be a different story but all Romney has to do is stand there and keep asking who what were and why and let Obama stammer and stumble, THEN it is over!

    Hey dare Ralphie boy!!!! But arent them yankees ON FIRE!!!!!????? :lol:

  • Ratboy

    Hey Mark, you forgot this one……….

    REALCLEAR MAP: Romney takes first lead in electoral college…

  • Matthew

    One of the more interesting aspects of that Gallup poll is what happens when you go to the Gallup site and look at it under the RV model. It goes from R-52 O-45 to R-48 O-47, which really drives home just how devastating the first debate was for Democratic enthusiasm. That’s a lot of voters who, increasingly, look like they’re not gonna turn out and vote.

  • Mark

    @Ratboy

    if Michigan(16) and Pennsylvania(20) don’t go blue I would be surprised, I would take having those on my side ver the symbolic victory of behinf ahead 5 points on an average of polls.

    I personally think the election comes down to not being the Pres of the USA, it’s who will be the Pres of Ohio

  • Ratboy

    @ Mark

    Well I can tell you this, here in Michigan the tv ads had stopped from both sides other than local and state election ads BUT……….Gueeeees what start on Sunday……….yep ads from Stabenaw and Obama!!! Now why do you think that is? :)

  • Ralph Hahn

    Yanks swept by Tigers 8-1. Yankees officially on vacation ’til next Spring.

    Don’t you mean Debbie Spenditnow(that ad always makes me laugh how incredibly bad it was). lol

    As for pumping money in their, just securing a state that will most likely go blue, remind people why they should vote. Only way Mich and Penn go Red is if the Republicans somehow sweep the country and all of a sudden states that are likely blue turn red in the process in which case both Michigan and Pennsylvania won’t be the electoral votes that put Romney over the 270 needed(much like if Obama somehow wins NortH Carolina, those won’t be the 16 electoral votes that will get him over 270)

  • Sicilian Papa

    The Gallup poll lags behind.

    I thought O. did himself some good Tuesday. The answer about Libya changed the debate and really hurt Romney.

    The NBC polls are the least trustworthy but those are big spreads even with there slant to the Dems.

    If that did change the momentum O. better invite Candy to the Ball.

    Some of the other swing state polls slightly favor O. and I looked at internals. They are pretty much on the up and up.

  • Mark

    http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2012/president/2012_elections_electoral_college_map_no_toss_ups.html

    With no tossups Obama – 294 Romney – 244

    Romney has to somehow get 26 of those electoral votes. Virginia(13) might be the easiest of the group to turn Red, that being said Colorado(9) could just as easily go Blue

  • usnretiredx2

    Well I am out of here, for the night that is. Got some TV to watch. Last one out turn off the lights. Watch out I may put a chair in front of the door and yell “they are giving away free phones”. :twisted:

  • DB

    Well for those with any remaining doubt of the immaturity and lack of honesty from Mark2, he just accused Sarah Bibel of tvbtn of working for Fox News because she factually reported, with no opinion included in the story, that The Five was the top watched program on cable at 5pm. Can someone have less than zero credibility???
