Of course because based on current party registrations in the states mentioned no rational sane person would take the NBC poll seriously
Does NBC pollsters REALLY think Obama is going to do better in OH and VA then he did in 2008?
If they do, they are incompetent, if they don’t they are liars.
It ain’t over until it’s over.
We haven’t even had a debate yet, for cat’s sake. As we get within a month or less of the election, people will at last wake up and pay attention to the coming events.
Sure, there are signs and portents galore, but not everybody is equally attuned to the nuances and penumbrations of things to come.
Then we will start to see something like accuracy in polling numbers. But they can still call it wrong, as “President” Dewey could have attested in 1948.
I said on another thread that I’ve been an Ohioan a long time, and there has never, ever been anything like a 10 point democrat edge like NBC is giving this poll.
At best, Ohio has been even. It’s been a swing state for forever with a conservative southwest and rural, balancing out the big cities/counties around Cleveland, Toledo, Columbus and Youngstown.
Proof of that is that Ohio currently has a republican Governor, Senate, House, Supreme Court, Sec State (elected position)
That would NEVER happen in a state with a 10 point advantage by democrats. Never.
