Posted on 10/16/2012 8:11:15 AM PDT by Justaham
The left-leaning Public Policy Polling does regular weekly polling for the extreme left-leaning Daily Kos and SEIU, and the numbers this morning have probably stopped the hearts of leftists everywhere. Nationally, the poll shows Romney up four, 50-46%. In the swing states, the news is just as bad with Romney up three, 50-47%.
In this particular poll, the movement towards Romney nationally is a net gain of two points. In the swing states, Romney overcame a four-point deficit. Two weeks ago he was losing to Obama, 50-46%. That's a seven-point shift.
Daily Kos released the daily numbers in this three-day rolling poll. Friday and Saturday averaged out to a tie, but on Sunday, Romney walloped Obama by twelve points -- 55-43%. Obviously, that's a fluke, but the question is, how much of one? Was there a real momentum shift of some kind? Daily Kos claims that nothing in the news can account for this, but that's debatable.

Romney is up in a Daily Kos poll? Really?
Are they still doctoring the polls, to create the impression that Obama is more popular than he really is? Or are they now reporting more honest data, so that they won’t be so far off of the results on election day?
Can I relax yet?
I wonder how the Daily Kos people feel about this.
They’re slashing their wrists over this.
The Sunday poll would be most valid because everyone’s home watching their local NFL team. Friday and Saturday not so much and so they have to fudge the numbers to try to create a valid sample. That’s when the unbalanced D versus R sampling takes place.
So of the three days polled, Sunday would be the most accurate.
No! Not until Nov. 7th and everyone has voted!!
If you want to ask them, approach with caution...they are all holding sharp objects.
I look forward to the day the Obama family leaves our White House for the last time, and I want to see their tears.
Are they still doctoring the polls, to create the impression that Obama is more popular than he really is? Or are they now reporting more honest data, so that they wont be so far off of the results on election day?
This one’s easy.
They placed Romney up in the polls so they can take him down after the town hall tonight.
There's a counter-argument that Sunday would be biased in favor of Democrats because Republican-leaning voters are in church all morning.
I have a fairly safe prediction. No matter what happens at the debate tonight, the MSM will immediately hail Obama’s tremendous comeback performance and attempt to demonize Romney for being untruthful, vague and/or rude.
After the last debate, the MSM and the rest of the left wing could not stifle their shock, horror and deep disappointment at Obama. It was like a gag reflex. They simply could not hold back their overpowering urge to vomit.
Now they have had time to reflect and have become even more shocked and horrified to see Romney shoot ahead of Obama in all of the polls. The MSM and the rest of the far left wing fringe have way too much emotionally and financially invested in Obama to simply cut him loose now. They will do whatever it takes from now until the election to prop Obama back up.
If they do manage to prop Obama up long enough to get him re-elected, then they will start tearing into him like a pack of wild dogs. The honeymoon is definitely over.
Maybe they’re lying to lower expectations for the ‘debate’ tonight. Why would we trust them or care what they have to say?
No. None of us can relax until after 8 PM on election night. These next few weeks will be an emotional roller coaster as we try to oust the Marxist. Barry isn't going to go quietly.
These debates are all about preparation. I have the feeling you’re going to see O prepared for the “up the middle” and Romney is going to run sweep after sweep. While it’s probably impossible to exceed the disaster that Zero had in Debate 1, this will come close and the media won’t be able to cover.
“And in other news this morning...hardware stores across the nation are reporting a run on Duct Tape, which is being used to stop heads from exploding...”
They placed Romney up in the polls so they can take him down after the town hall tonight.
They are also scaring their base in an attempt to motivate them. It is indicative of a ratcheting up of the panic factor of the Wrong.
And look at the big impact this poll has had on the RCP averages.
Most of the undecided voters will not watch the debates. Any opinions they form will be based on whatever the TV talking heads tell them about the debates over the following several days. The MSM knows this.
The MSM will do whatever it takes to spin the debate as a great victory for Our Glorious Leader Obama. You can count on it.
Here’s the cold hard reality.. Obama cannot on his best day get over low 42-43% of the popular vote.. PERIOD.
I don’t care who’s poll it is or what breakdown they use.. On election day Obama will not get over 42-43% at BEST.. and it is not beyond the realm of possibility that he not even get 40% and lose his re-election bid by a larger margin than Herbert Hoover in 1932.
This guy was an empty suit nothing 4 years ago, now he’s an empty suit nothing with a record of complete failure.
This guy NEVER had any shot at re-election.
Obviously fight like its neck and neck, but we are on the cusp of the greatest electoral landslide in 80 years if not longer. Yes the EC won’t reflect how bad the shelacking is because population distributions are different today than they were in say 1984, but don’t kid yourselves, this is not even going to be close.
FIGHT LIKE its a 50-50 election, but don’t get disheartened, this was never a race.
And they will fail as badly as they did with Obama #1 or Biden. Wow, do you think the media is powerful. In 1970, yep. 2012? nope.
On Sunday “Romney walloped Obama by twelve points — 55-43%.” I submit to you that the final result will be somewhat close to this, maybe 52-48. I think Daily Kos stumbled into a REAL poll number.
What is a tin-plated dictator with delusions of godhood to do when he's lost the media, organized labor AND the brainless syncophants??
FALL ON YOU SWORD, BARRY!
(Nah..... he's not enough man to do that)
Please, everyone. MITT ROMNEY IS JUST AS BAD AS OBAMA! DON’T THINK THAT A MITT ADVANTAGE IS INSURMOUNTABLE!
Vote 3rd party if you care about your country!!!!
Don’t underestimate the MSM. Without the media working tirelessly for the last 4 years to prop Obama up he would be polling in the low 20s rather than the high 40s.
The MSM couldn’t restrain themselves from slamming Obama after the first debate because of their shock and disappointment at the incredible failure of the Anointed One. They are over that now.
They have had a week to watch Obama drop over a cliff in the polls. They will hold their barf for the rest of the campaign and sing praises to Our Glorious Leader. If they manage to pull out a win for Obama, after the election is over they are going to start treating him like they usually treat Republicans. It won’t be pretty.
That’s exactly what I think. Libs really do believe BO is going to slice and dice Romney up bringing up lies about him that were featured in all their voter commercials. BO spent a fortune on those lying commercials and he is going to use the lies in them again in his talking points tonight. I just hope Romney has the audience seeded with some of his people too.
Don’t know much about KOS, but I think that a lot of SEIU people resent being bullied by their leaders. They may say one thing when communicating with union thugs, and another when talking to a pollster.
As one who has written about the media and studied it for 20 years, I hardly underestimate the media. Neither do I hold the drive-bys in conspiratorial awe as some do here.
This election will be an interesting insight into the residual power which the lamestream media wields.
Due to the LSM's transparent attempt to prop up a failed and dangerous marxist President, fewer and fewer voting Americans are giving them any credibility at all.
The LSM is doing everything in its power. Without them, 0bama would not have a snowball's chance in Hell.
Hopefully, the repudiation will be so complete that the LSM will once again start trying to practice actual journalism.
I believe the libs “want” bambi to slice & dice Romney, but they know he can't do - at least not without help.
Must be sad to live like a loser.
I join other FReepers in saying NO! IMHO it is crawl over the broken glass time! We have to not only win the honest count, but the theft margin as well. Every vote counts!
Can you imagine what the ‘internals’ the real numbers are? Mondale will look like a winner compared to what is in store for the Marxists. JMHO
They placed Romney up in the polls so they can take him down after the town hall tonight.....How’d that work out?
Should I spell it out for you?
Expected from BO. I’m waiting for the commercial that claims “fuel prices are lowest in 30 years”....
No, I just injected some irony. I R O N Y.
LOL! Glad we got that cleared up.
