Gallup is now doing daily polls as we get closer to the election. This one doesn’t cover last night’s debate, but I really don’t think that will move the needle much for Obama. I like the trend that’s developing:


Meanwhile, Michelle Obama said they’re going to party hard on November 7th. Hey, I would too if I just found out I was moving to a mansion in Hawaii four years earlier than expected!

    Meanwhile, Michelle Obama said they’re going to party hard on November 7th.

    Not as hard as we're going to party on January 20th.

    As Lombardi would (probably) say,

    "Don't stop now that we're winning. Keep scoring until the game is over!"

    Of course they are going to party hard on November 7th. They need to bilk the taxpayers as much as they can between then and Jan 20th. Every night there will be a banquet, a concert, a party or all of the above. And come Jan 20th Air Force jets designated as Air Force 1, 2, etc will need to go into the shop for a total maintenace overhaul with all the flights they will have been put though over that almost 3 month time period.

    So they plan to treat it the same way they do any other day.

    The green line is the great national mystery. It’s utterly incomprehensible that forty-five percent of thinking Americans polled believes this guy deserves a second term.

    In the process of trying to think of ANYTHING good, or of a positive nature FOR AMERICA, that Zero has done for this country in particular or the world as a whole, I’m still drawing a complete blank and am open to input of a serious nature.

    Without a doubt China has benefitted the greatest from America’s last four years with perhaps Brazil next in line.

    Now, the UN wants editorial oversight for American text books used in American schools to teach American kids with money from the perverted pedophiles and misogynistic, hate filled islamophites who shoot little girls in the head because they want to go to school.

    Good point !

  6. SignPainterGuy on October 17th, 2012 8:54 pm

    Mysterious Mysteries abound ! And quite a few travesties !

    Drudge headline all day – "GALLUP: R 51% – O 45%".

    Several pundits have predicted that even the most lefty and unaccountable / unbelievable polling orgs would tend to post more accurate results in the final weeks before the election; looks to be so !

    Of course Obama had a big blunder last night that could very well hurt him in states like Ohio (that NRO says he is considering a "firewall" state for his re-election…. No, I am not talking about Benghazi, I am talking about gun control.

    "What I'm trying to do is to get a broader conversation about how do we reduce the violence generally. Part of it is seeing if we can get an assault weapons ban reintroduced. But part of it is also looking at other sources of the violence. Because frankly, in my hometown of Chicago, there's an awful lot of violence and they're not using AK-47s. They're using cheap handguns."

    I'll bet he wished he hadn't said that one.

  9. archer on October 17th, 2012 10:56 pm

    Well, then, as GWB might say, it's likely that the pundits predictifications are unerroneously pundificated pundifications.

    And you folks over there in the press can quote me on that.

  10. Marshall_Will on October 17th, 2012 11:15 pm

    Incredible. A "broader conversation" with WHOM!? Your former Chief of Staff that uh… just so happens to RUN your home town..? Seriously BuhRock, with 'whom'?

    See that's curious Mr. pResident b/c Conservative just-a-bloggers have been trying to get your journo-tools to even remotely acknowledge the BLOOD spilling over in your streets for several YEARS now!

    Why did you wait until the 2nd to the last debate prior to SEEKING re-election to even dignify that violence..? Some of are dying to know and others are just dying…

  11. backwoodsconsr on October 17th, 2012 11:52 pm

    Wow! You went newcular with that one!

    I keep hoping that these poll results are skewed the same way that they were previously, using the 2008 percentages.

    I would *love* to see the polls close at 5pm (my time) and see NH, PA, ME, MA, RI, NY, VA, NC, SC, GA, FL (Eastern part) turn bright red on the election map.

    The only thing better would be to see BO concede the election, and see the libs in CA, WA, and OR stop voting. Actually, come to think of it, I'd love to see all lib/progs stop voting.

  13. Marshall_Will on October 18th, 2012 11:26 am

    Even Scott Rasmussen has no interest in seeing a landslide. What makes the error more egregious is all their "models" discount 2010 entirely.

    Not ironically, before OR's Fraud by Mail, often elections WERE over before many West Coast conservatives got off work. I see no hope for several of the states you mention, I take more more region than reality?

    Although, and again, to believe these polls you also have to discount that Anthony Weiner's seat went to a Republican! In fact, a seat that hadn't so since Wilson..?

  14. Truesoldier__ on October 18th, 2012 12:50 pm

    And the funny thing is Fraud by Mail hasn't increased voter turn out one bit, but it has lead to more and more voter fraud. WA ST is now completly a Fraud by Mail state as well. It went that way when the state forced the last county (Pierce) to swithc over to mail only even though they did not want to.

    Our local talk show host had DWS on the show by phone last week (yeah, she delivered exactly the fire hose of BS you`d expect) and yesterday had Valerie Jarrett (the guy is GOOD) and got her to explain why Early Voting (as urged by Mooch) is so important "to anyone / to the dems". She `splained that people intending to vote on 11-6 might have accidents, home or job responsibilities that cause them to miss their chance to vote, so it only makes sense to get it out of the way early ! Why she didn`t say it puts those ballots safely in the hands of election officials for better "protection" is beyond me !

    Yes, people DID call in and ask him why he didn`t press both those famous wimmens about their BS. He `splained that we all knew it would only piss `em off and they`d never come back. Aah, we "want them back" ?

    Tomorrow`s show will have the candidates for Heath Shuler seat in the US House of Reps in an in-studio debate and call-in; Mark Meadows (R) and Hayden Rogers (D). It should be fun !

  16. Marshall_Will on October 18th, 2012 9:08 pm

    Just what we need. The soft selling SLUMLORD'S take on 'civic responsibility'.

    It's worth noting TS's observation that voter -turnout- hasn't really budged since inception of FBM. Only a natural advantage to Dim's. As they tend to prefer living spoon style in densely populated districts that lend themselves to trunk loads 'o ballots that miraculously "show up" on said night of election?

    It's now 52/45 R/O…
