It is important to understand when we read the
various polls stating standings of Obama Vs. Romney that we have one major
understanding. WHO are these polls calling to ascertain their final percentages
when completing their survey? Many polls
call a random group of registered voters to simply ask, “If the election were
held today, for whom would you vote for President?”



Unfortunately, many of these individuals being
called have little or no intention to vote in the first place. Unlike most
polls, RASMUSSEN will pay very close attention to LIKELY VOTERS in their
assessment of conducting their polls. So
when we see these polls come out, we may wish to pay much closer attention to
the HOW the poll is conducted?



Even many of the polls which have been calling
only Registered Voters have seen dramatic declines for President Obama,
especially in the all important “swing states!” These polls have either
eliminated or greatly closed the huge percentages Obama had just a few months
earlier! February 7th FOX NEWS showed the highest lead among registered
voters in the four swing states of Florida, Ohio, North Carolina and Virginia
with a comfortable 7 point lead for Obama! However, most recent polling done by
FOX shows the margin to be a “dead heat,” 47 to 47%..... while GALLOP shows
Romney up by 3%, again citing registered voters! Not only do these numbers spell “trouble” for
Obama, but there are still 6 to 8% of voters out there that are “undecided!” In past Presidential elections…
Johnson in
'64, Nixon in '72, Ford in '76, Carter in '80, Reagan in '84, Bush in '92 and
Clinton in '96…. All incumbents failed to pick up more than 1% of the
outstanding “undecided” vote at the time of the election!



In addition to the FOUR major “swing states” mentioned above,
other states have now come up that may likely swing over to Romney! Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, New
Hampshire, Iowa, New Mexico, Colorado and Nevada are now are within very few
percentage points of voting for Romney, some even have him leading!



Adding to troubles for the President has are his new “personal
favorability” numbers. What has usually run about 10 to 20 points higher than
his job approval, are now equal to his job rating. In Michigan alone, his
personal favorability among likely voters is 47-47, while his job rating is
50-48. Romney's favorability is 49-42. It is my opinion that these lower
numbers have come from a backlash from his recent speeches. In substance, his
focus on class warfare and his sarcastic and bombastic demagogic style are not
playing well with the voters, especially Catholics. He is no longer seen as “Presidential” to a vast
number of Americans. Especially flip flopping on major issues as Gay Marriage and
the Keystone Pipeline. The President is well aware he has “kissed” North
Carolina “good bye!” Nor does his message of attacking Big Oil seem
constructive. Voters all distrust Big Oil and would rather see them get
punished, but they do not see repealing their tax breaks as any way of lowering
prices at the pump or of increasing the supply of oil. Especially when the
President has guaranteed BILLIONS to Brazil and Columbia with the promise to
buy “ALL the oil Brazil can drill and all the gasoline Columbia can refine!”



I will “go on the record” as saying… providing no major change in
President Obama’s current positions... this blogger will be shocked IF he can
even muster 230 Electoral Votes come November. MITT ROMNEY will win by a
LANDSLIDE!
