How/Why are they coming up with an 8 point enthusiasm gap?
I really wish ONE of these would have Romney leading...
Funny how every poll has it tied magically.
Another laughable +8 poll.
Look at the approve/disapprove numbers and the right track/wrong track numbers. Obama is cooked.
Another great poll for Romney. Indy’s go 18% for Romney. +8 D sample. This means probably a 5-6 point Romney win Nationwide if you look at an unskewed polling sample. Actually many of the polls I think would be pretty similar if they all weighted D/R/I the same or within a couple points. The key is the Indy’s are going to Romney in most every poll and many by double digits. NO WAY that Romney doesn’t win , rather soundly, if Indy’s vote Romney by 8% or more.
They show the race “tied” so that when Obama loses they can say “Well we showed it tied, didn’t think the GOP enthusiasm would be that high” they are trying to give themselves cover
Strange, I thought Gallup was predicting an R+3 advantage in this election. I guess Gravis didn’t get the memo.
Either they are trying to mirror the heavy democrat turnout of 2008 (not going to be anywhere close to that this year) or
Conservative republicans tend to ignore pollsters much more than dems.
Anecdata shows the enthusiasm in our favor. RR rallies have 20 fold more audience members than the Bamster. Traditional lefty newspapers are tripping over themselves to endorse Romney.
Bottomline: Polling (using the current methodology anyway) is going the way of the buggy whip.
D+8. Another very encouraging poll. So Romney will win at least 54% of the vote. Wicked good.
Romney is leading. It is not going to be D+8 or D+11 (CNN). And look how Romney is winning indy’s.
D+8 wow. Hey MSM why don’t you just do D+16 or D+20? Because that would give you the results that you really want!
How can ROmney lead in polls with +8 and +11 D? Ignore those polls, they’re done and compiled by leftwing retards. Now if Gallup comes out tomorrow with a tie or O ahead you’ll have something to worry about. But PPP andCNN are ajoke. Unprofessional. OF course they could be right but Obama won Ohio last time by 4.5 and that will be his highwater mark. PPP polls +8 D. Garbage.
Yes big time. The new CNN poll Independents: Romney 59% Obama 37% .
The sample was Nov. 3-5? November 5 is tomorrow. What’s up with that? So D+7 instead of D+8 would have Romney up by 1%?
+7 in 2008 was a record turnout advantage. Does anyone really believe people are going to turn out for Obama in larger numbers than 2008? Look at all the signs...
The pollsters have lost their minds if they think the turnout will be +8 Democrat.
Man, everyone is pulling their punches
“They show the race tied so that when Obama loses they can say Well we showed it tied, didnt think the GOP enthusiasm would be that high they are trying to give themselves cover”
You hit the nail right on the head. These polling outfits have a huge dilemma — most are so invested in Obama that they cannot reveal the truth, or it would depress their base. But they can’t afford to ruin their credibility either. So they are using these ties as a cop out so that they couldn’t really be wrong cause they had the race “going either way.”
