Quantcast

Polls change rapidly and they really can't predict an election. One week the incumbent will be ahead; the other week, the challenger will be ahead. Yogi Berra said, "It ain't over until it is over."

    The only poll that counts is the one that closes next November. This will go down to who has the best ground game.

    Ever watch a Super Bowl when the score was 48 to 7? No, you didn't. Neither would you watch a Kentucky Derby with only one horse. The media know that people like and want to hear that their candidate choice is out there with a chance to win, doing the battle, spreading the word, etc.... Recall how many national elections were "too close to call" until the votes began to be counted?

    This year the two candidates will spend over $2 Billion on media advertising between now and election day. Unless their candidacy is declared important and "close", the donations to the lesser would dry up. The media has a financial stake in each of them, sucking in the donations with the description of a great race, and selling the advertising for great profits. Welcome to American politics, as brought to you by your favorite public corporations. The whole game is 90% about money, money now, money later, money
    for Wall Street, money for Fox, money for CNN, money, money, your money, your money either now or later.

    I feel indifferent to these trends. This is bad news for any incumbent.

    The media keeps its ratings by keeping certain people in its grasp. The hypersensationalized media.... that people seem to believe. The polls that will mean something will be around October 1. And right now... it's a long road until then.

    Aside from a few outliers, the bulk of polls taken collectively have a pretty good track record. Of course, it's time to bring up their inaccuracy now that Obama's on the downslope.

    and a lot of the flip flop has to do with WHO does the poll..

    a conservative polling agency will select those from towns that will swing to the Rep.
    a liberal polling agency will go inner city , lower income and will swing to the Dems..

    or that is what I believe.. the cross section is just a snow screen to attempt to get some sort of legit .... LOL

    Strap in, Cause over the next 5 months we are going to hear bragging when someone's preferred candidate is leading, and when they are trailing you will hear "These Polls are only a snapshot in time"

    However, the Rasmussen polls of LIKELY voters (not registered voters) have been about 90% accurate...and right now those polls do not look very good for Obama. We shall see.

    It will all come down to the debates. According to an ex Romney advisor, Obama will smoke him.

    does it matter? Republicans have used teleprompters haven't they? They draw up what they want to say. Isn't that more important than how it's delivered?
