Whatever bounce Obama got was in the blue states. In the swing states, it’s still way too close to call. Today’s Rasmussen poll results show that in the eleven swing states, including Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin, which total 145 electoral votes, it’s Obama 46% and Romney 45%. In 2008, Obama won these states 53% to 46%.
So how does the MSM try to spin the evidence so Obama looks like he’s unbeatable? Let’s look at Ohio, for example. Politico reported (using uncredited sources, of course), that Ohio is lost for Romney:
“Two officials intimately involved in the GOP campaign said Ohio leans clearly in Obama’s favor now.”
I didn’t know Axelrod and Plouffe were working for Romney, but hey, they’ll go where the money is.
But, as usual, Politico was relying on Obama-leaning polls to support their narrative; yesterday the PPP poll (which is always weighted toward Obama because of PPP’s affiliation with the SEIU) showed Obama up by five in Ohio. Hmmm. According to the Gravis marketing poll taken last Tuesday, Romney was up three in Ohio. Who’s telling the truth?
Example #1. On August 14, the PPP poll showed Obama up three in Ohio, while the same day Rasmussen Reports showed Romney and Obama tied.
Example #2: Last Monday PPP showed Obama tied with Romney in North Carolina, while the Elon University/Charlotte Observer poll, a local state poll, showed Romney up by four.
But Politico won’t be denied their mission to say whatever they can to disillusion Romney’s base, and they make no bones about using uncredited sources; as Politico reporter Jonathan Martin said last month when Politico quoted unnamed sources in a story about Republicans unhappy about the selection of Paul Ryan (what?????):
We were candid about the sourcing on that, as you mentioned, Howie, and basically say to our readers, ‘Look, folks don’t want to put their names [on] the charges. If you don’t want to read Politico, that’s fine.’
Every race in the swing states is close right now, and the unconscionable skewing of the polls by the MSM shouldn’t discourage Republicans. The MSM has lied before, they are lying now, and they will lie in the future. The Obama campaign has thrown everything but the kitchen sink at Romney, they have the power of incumbency, and Romney simply is not going away. And all of this is before Romney has even attacked Obama in ads and the debates.
Hey, Dems, this show ain’t even close to over; we’re just getting warmed up.
we the people,who are the real government,we the people by me,don,t listen to or believe any thing that comes out of these polls,we know by me,that ovomit is losing big time,from the random poll,we have taken by us,ovomit is losing genrally around,65% to 68% for romney,and between 33 to 35% for ovomit.so thats what we the people,by me,have been seeing for almost 2 years,you can believe or not,but thats what we show,and the media tv/radio/newspapers can say what they want,and you can believe that or not,but a least we the people by me do.god bless ron paul,sheriff joe and cold case posse,brian terry and family,chuck norris,frank serpcio,and all american veternas/citizens.one nation under god
according to the numbers of electoral congress he has a lead even with out a vote being taken swing states do not matter it is the number of electoral votes. All the polls have Obama in front which is propaganda as they are paid for their results or coerced into making the numbers look like Obama is the winner.
I believe 50% of what I see and even less than what I hear. I'm more concerned Obama is going to remain president by what whatever (illegal) means necessary.
You are right Eric, all we can do is make sure the legal votes are counted and the ilegal ones are thrown out. They said that Reagan didnt stand a chance of winning, what happened then, a landslide win by Reagan!!!!!
