More polls: Romney now

In case there was any lingering shred of doubt that Romney helped himself considerably last week, this ought to finish it off. Michigan: Obama’s 10 percentage point lead (47%-37%) in a poll conducted last month by EPIC-MRA of Lansing dropped to 3 points (48% to 45%), according to the poll of 600 likely voters conducted by EPIC-MRA of Lansing. The gap between Romney and Obama was within the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points… “Romney has come back like gangbusters,” said EPIC-MRA President Bernie Porn.

Obama has run into the juggernaut of normal people who he even denied existed except for a few rednecks who shoot themselves out of homemade cannons.Obama had little or no exposure to real Americans because all the circles he traveled in were grievance laden activists.He decided a long time ago he could win with the welfare majority.What he really did was wake up a sleeping giant.

If Romney is this close without taking the milions of tea party voters into consideration,he's dead meat.

Pundits are looking at the 2008 voting model instead of the 2010 voting model which was the first evaluation of Obama's performance

I'm in Michigan and I think Romney has a chance here. He should put some ads on during the college football games and the pros too. I had to order my Romney sign (in mid-Sept) and they just notified me yesterday that it's coming. I wish they would fight here. I don't see many Obama signs or bumper stickers at all in any place but Ann Arbor and even there they're way down from 2008. I finally got a sign from our victory center and got it up. Had to go there twice to get it.

Here in Michigan I know 8 people, adults with families, who have never voted in their life, who have registered specifically so they can vote against Obama. Granted 8 people won't swing the State for Romney but there are a lot more where they came from. Around the office you can't find anyone who will admit they voted for him the first time. Very very different than 2008. Just saying.

FTA: ''Plus, 76% of voters said they watched the first televised debate, with a net 2% saying they switched their vote from Obama to Romney based on what they saw.''

Could it be that they saw the real Romney, as opposed to the eeevil gaffe-prone, rich elitest that the useless media has been selling for the last 7 or 8 months?

It be nice to see the Romney campaign show up somewhere besides Livonia, here in Michigan.
I know Macomb and Oakland counties are easy to find, but the foot soldiers are in Kent county.
I know, the Reagan democrats are in Macomb. Those are the union auto workers who cross over and vote against the UAW. They'd like affordable gasoline for their sparkly bass boats and pickup trucks.

I guess the American people stopped clinging to their guns and religion for a moment and picked up the telephone. Earth to the Chicago pols: they've been there all along and now they're going to home in on your posteriors with a size 10W.

I have faith in my fellow Americans and my only worry is the Chicago corruption when the vote is counted. As one of the home repairers for the elderly told me, he knows of people called by pollsters and they lied to them. Said they were still undecided and do not want to admit they will vote for the Governor this time for fear of being hounded even though the poll is supposedly confidential. They don't believe the pollsters and my bet is the percentage shift is far greater.

Was called yesterday by Rasmussen. Very extensive poll.. lots of questions, even on Geitner and Holder. Im not exactly in a swing state, so dont know how they chose me, but they know now if they had a choice of "broken glass" to rate my likeliness to vote, I would have chosen it. They said results of the poll would be released in couple days.

I live in Jackson, MI and because of Obama's policies, am currently unemployed. So I have been helping at the Romney Victory Center, here in town. I have two signs up in my yard, there are NO Obama signs anywhere in my neighborhood. I watched the first debate at the Romney Center and will watch the rest of the debates there as well. I also plan to be at the center popping champaign corks on Nov. 6th. If you have any spare time, find the Romney site near you and spend just an hour on the phones. Every bit helps and the results will be so much sweeter!

It is strangely silent here in San Diego, nary an Obama sign in sight. Of course I haven't driven through the Gay areas or other strongholds of the Democrat Party. I wonder how the Hispanic vote will pan out this time. I'm getting the feeling that Obama isn't exactly too popular with the Mexican population.The Military here will go for Romney of course.

Romney is doing well. Looks positive and presidential. Glad to hear all the positives in Michigan.

He needs to link the Obama agenda(don't use policies it's an agenda), and the high gasoline prices.

High gasoline prices means people have less to spend, and we're 70% a consumption economy.

Obama agenda, using the EPA, will stop fracking, will stop future oil production, and reduce taxable revenues to cities, counties and states who are enjoying those new added revenue streams.

I just pray that all of this momentum will last for the next 4 weeks. We have to keep our eye on the ball and never give up or take anything for granted.

I, for one, would get up from my death bed and crawl through broken glass to vote for Romney if I had to.

Not just MI and PA. Watch IL. I know I am getting boring banging the drum on this, but here goes:

There is only one significant political office contested in Illinois in this election: President of the United States. Neither US Senate seat, nor the mayor of Chicago, nor the governorship is up for election this year. Obama is out there all by himself. No one of any import depends on him or his turnout in this election. So, with no big guys with anything riding on this, why would anyone voluntarily lash himself to the mast of the sinking Obama ship and ride it to the bottom? To answer that, first ask: who has Obama done anything for to merit such loyalty? Answer: nobody.

Chicago is a Notre Dame town. Catholic. At one time there were more Poles in Chicago than in Warsaw. Maybe still. Does anyone seriously expect the first Jewish mayor of Chicago to put it all on the line to try to rally the Irish, Italian, Polish, and Hispanic Catholics to vote against their interests and come out for a president who is in the middle of a war on the Catholic Church? Really? Smarter to just sit this one out and let that Hyde Park Obama/Jarrett crowd sink. And if Chicago sits it out, suburbs and downstate deliver Illinois to Romney.

This ain't rocket science to figure THIS out. Illinois is going to be in play for Romney.

If 0bama sucks in the next debate the vote for him will become so depressed that even the pollsters won't be able to cover for him anymore. Though many if not most of them want 0bama to win being wrong by over 10 points is too much for them to sacrifice for 0bama.

To respond to the question by poster above about my Rasmussen poll, the number showed up in caller ID.. was not a 800# but it was a phone number from out of state. Im like most.. I dont answer any calls that says private caller or "unkonwn". I thought it was a family member. They immediately identified themselves (all on tape, obviously). But, once I heard Rasmussen, I knew it was a national poll. I havent been polled in a very long time, for national polls anyway.

I live in PA.
I have 2 co-workers--college educated professionals, with lots of smarts and would fall into the >$250K/yr income bracket.
Both numbskulls voted fro Obama because they alwaqys vote Dem, As late as Labor Day, they were strong supporters of Choom Boy (can't admit their error in voting for him in 2008, doncha know)
Today, both libtards told me they are "undecided, leaning Romney"--meaning they will vote for Romney for sure. Both cited the poor debate by Obama and the alibis afterward.

DO YOU GET IT? There are many thousands of people who voted for Obama in 2008 for whatever reason--party loyalty, white guilt, liberalism.
They now regret their vote and are looking for an excuse to switch.
The debate (with Obama looking like a fool) and the aftermath (with Obama calling Romney a liar) now give these people AN EXCUSE to switch their votes over to Romney, without ever having to admit they were hoodwinked in 2008.
Romney's debate success gave 2008 Obama voters the excuse they needed to drop Obama in 2012.

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers.

NFL players have Most Valuable Player awards. Major League Baseball players strive for Cy Youngs and Gold Gloves. For journalists, it´s the Pulitzer. Every year, when Pulitzers are announced, most of them are awarded to big corporate media outlets with huge staffs and budgets devoted specifically to the contest. But not always. On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable. Philipps exposed the shameful treatment of members of the U.S. military, many of them wounded combat veterans, in the drawdown of American military forces. Too often,

Eventually, all individuals who hold a five percent or greater stake in a Medicare supplier or provider that is categorized as "high risk" will be subject to the requirement. The provision is part of the Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP Program Integrity Provisions (Title E) of the Affordable Care Act, and gives the HHS secretary broad discretion in applying the background check requirements depending on the potential for abuse, fraud, and/or waste.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
