According to RCP average Romney Rising in Virginia, and Florida

Allbiz - PWCM - JLA 2012/09/14 13:49:07

According to the Real Clear Politics averages, Mitt Romney now the leads the presidential race in Virginia for the first time since the beginning of the year. RCP also finds that Obama's poll numbers have been sliding steadily in the key state of Florida.

In Virginia, the RCP average puts Romney at 47.3 percent to Obama's 46.5 percent, Romney's strongest showing.

Romney has been on the rise in Virginia for some time and the GOP nominee campaigned in Virginia Tuesday to capitalize on his rise there.

Meanwhile, Obama has been falling in Florida, another battleground state. RCP's average for the Sunshine State shows Obama now nearly tied with Romney (47.6 to 47.0), a drop from the President's previous strong showing.

    Romney is a desperate man and it shows . He has to have Ohio and has poured many millions into ads. Obama is pulling away with a 4.2 lead. Today's poll shows Obama ahead in Florida by 7 ( NBC/WSJ) and Rassmussen , very right leaning, has Obama ahead in Florida by 2. Michigan, it's Obama by 10.

    Look for Team Romney to try a new approach now. They totally screwed up with the foreign policy talk in re Egypt and Libya... and they know it. Romney has already been practicing for the foreign policy debate in October. He is clueless. Guess who is his coach? GWB's foreign policy director. Didn't that work out well for us.

    Oh wait!!! Yesterday you and another sheeple were raving about RCP averages and how they can be believed.

    Today you want to ignore them. Curioulsy, the poll results you are using are the same ones someone else used..........YESTERDAY!!!

    BTW, Empty Chair used to be ahead in FL by double digits. So, no matter what you think, Obie is losing his grip.

    I'm not sure whats going on with RCP..........they typically use an average of 6 polls (pretty much the same ones) for their election outcome prediction. After Obama went to whining about Gallup they all of a sudden dropped some of the polls added in others and used more. Today they are using an average of 10 polls to show that Obama is ahead by less than 3 percentage points. Rasmussen is historically accurate and has Romney up by 3 among likely voters. Gallup is playing games and has up'ed their sampling base to 3,000 + "registered voters" using a 7 day tracking average. Obama got to them I believe. I think if an accurate and unskewed poll was actually taken it will show Obama is in deep trouble.

    Good news about Virginia but I don't think we can trust any poll except the one in November and that may be rigged with Spain counting many of the votes.

    Any who does vote for odumbo is dumber than dumb but, if they do win the election, they better be prepared to salute the hammer and sickle, kneel to the East and Mecca, and be okay with losing every liberty they now have. No need for proof, I approve this posting.
