Wisconsin Exit Polls Point to Romney LEAD in Wisconsin
CBS Exit polling | 6/6/2012 | ex-Libertarian

Posted on 06/06/2012 5:57:38 PM PDT by ex-Libertarian

Remember those exit polls that came out yesterday BEFORE the polls closed and before the actual results were released?

The exit polls had two main "findings":

1) Walker and Barrett were tied, and it was going to be a "long night," and

2) Obama was beating Romney by 6

As we all now know, Walker beat Barrett by 7. i.e., the exit polls overstated actual Dem support by 7 points.

Since the same exit poll had Obama ahead by 6, you do the math. Romney is ahead in Wisconsin, period.

If Romney can do so well in November than we REALLY need to dump him and pick a better candidate. This is our chance to pick someone who is not a liberal. Who cares if it causes a bit of chaos telling the idiot Romney “we are not accepting you” for the Nomination. More people will vote for the true conservative than Romney anyway so it would be a win-win situation. Now we are going to win the Presidency and it is not going to matter a single bit. What a DAMN shame.

I agree. Life is not fair and you get your five cards, maybe not the royal flush you wanted.

We cannot go back and undo what is done. Ideally, you and I and every FReeper should run for office or find and support a conservative who will. Clearly we need to win in DC, but across states, counties and localities we need to put solid conservatives in place.

Imagine if every park district, school board, library board and municipality were run by conservatives. You'd have urban blight licked, budgets balanced and incredible growth and prosperity. Plus our kids’ minds would be free to think.

We need a new “MSM Bias Offset Rule” -

whenever the result for a Republican candidate is predicted by the MSM, add 10% ....

So when CNN says Obama and Romney are tied in WI, then in reality, you know Romney is up by 10 points

simple!

All polls commissioned by the MSM (including FOX) have a bias toward DemoCraps, because the MSM still believes the majority of Americans are liberal.

We already tried hope and change. :/

A union woman from Wisconsin talked about this and polls on the Rush show today. Many union people are crossing the line and voting for the Republican and saying they voted for the Democrat and that they support Obama when they don’t plan on voting for him. This tells me that polls are worthless unless you want to put each person on a lie detector to get their answer. The big deal about this is that Obama must know that he has a lot of faux support out there.

Does that same logic make Leftists "Fisters"?

Yeah, I think "Fisters" is the new name for the Left, wouldn't you agree?

Well, Obama appreciates your character. He gets your 1/2 vote.

You liberal Republicans sure are saying that often. I know you guys are pulling for your liberal Candidate Romney but it is a big fat shame. Unfortunately you guys won and we will be stuck with you liberals winning regardless of who wins in November. Congrats....UGH!!!!

Boils down to whether it’s worth voting for a Fabian socialist to defeat a reconstructed Marxist. You apparently think so. I don’t.

Maybe you would like to tell us about all the ways Myth is significantly better?

You have to vote for the one that paddles slower over the falls. With Mitt, your grandkids may get a few more years before the Lord pulls the plug. With Ozero, you get maybe a couple before the Lord is fed up. Granted that is not much to say for the politicians that lead us, but it is the hand we are dealt. Read “The Harbinger” and you will see our future is a bit bleak.

I was more referring to your belief that there was an option at this stage to re-run the primaries.
