I think the more potent number is Romney leading indies by 15.....how the hell did they get a tie with Romney up 15 with inds.
It’s amazing to watch the MSM this morning.
Romney is (at worst) tied nationally, if not with a slight edge, and leading amongst Indies by double digits, enthusiasm, etc. Yet all I hear this morning is how Obama has the edge.
They are a joke.
I still say Romney, 52-47.
I read that Battleground poll. Essentially bad news all around on questions they couldn’t manipulate, like popularity, approval on the economy, etc. All came out bad for Obama.
But hey - he’s tied and gonna win! The only thing they could manipulate to get the answer they want is the turnout model.
Buried deep is this tidbit - 50% of respondents voted Obama in 2008, 40% McCain.
All the polls are in CYA mode. If they project a clear Romney win they fear being politically incorrect; if they project a clear Obama win but are wrong they lose credibility. Sure, there’s some data rigging going on because whoever’s funding a poll gets the results they want. Pic of Obama yesterday remind of Carter in 80 on Monday -tired, flat, crying. Probably Obama’s internal polls told him days ago that it’s over.
