Obama's Lead Has Completely
Evaporated In Two Key Swing States

Business Insider, by Brett LoGiurato

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 10/26/2012 12:16:59 AM

President Barack Obama's lead in battleground states Colorado and Virginia have vanished in the past month, according to new NBC News-Wall Street Journal-Marist and Fox News polls of the states. Obama is now tied with Republican Mitt Romney in Colorado among likely voters in the new NBC-WSJ-Marist poll, down from a 5-point lead in mid-September. In Virginia, a 7-point advantage in a September Fox News poll has crumbled, and Romney now leads by 2 points. In Colorado, Obama has gotten slammed in the past month with Independents. An 11-point lead last month has slimmed to a virtual tie. Romney has

Comments:
The polls mentioned have been strongly favoring 0bama and overloading with Democrats save Fox whose base I haven't seen. For them to say the swing is to Romney is the bell tolling.

Just logged over 1000 miles on my rental car in last week's trip to VA... R/R signs outnumbered Baraky's at least 7:1!

The dems are rallying around Obama's 10 point lead in Ohio in early voting. For one thing,I don't see how it's legal for this to be leaking out and secondly it shows Obama may steal this election with things like early and absentee voting.You have dems buying votes with booze,pizza and pot.You have a sitting reps son caught on tape pushing fraud. Votes are being changed by machines in NC.

I'll never believe that Obama got 10 million"new" black votes in the last election.The pool of unvoting blacks simply isn't that big.I think the law barring felons from voting is largely out the window and it wouldn't surprise me if prisoners were voting.The dems are also famous for pushing old folks in nursing homes to vote their way.

Illegal muslims are largely overlooked but they have some of the best document fraud going.Very professional and legitimate looking.

You can read all the polling tea leaves you want but there's secrets in the ground game nobody knows about.

People supporting Romney are going to be pounded with the white guilt card between now and election day.

Based on the 5 to 1 ratio I see in signs in Ohio (5 Romney signs for every one Obama), if Obama wins Ohio it will be from voter fraud.
Let's pray that any attempts to steal the election fail and become public ahead of time (not after a cheater is sworn in, when it's too late to fix.)

Since June the fear of a razor thin 0bama victory/theft has consumed my thoughts. It is understood that many of the polls grossly oversample democrats. However despite these bad samples every critical swing state but Ohio now leans Romney. Ohio is the holdout. It still stubbornly stays in 0bama's column. Romney seems ubable to catch there which is troubling. We can rejoice all we want about Romney's surge but if 0bama "takes" Ohio the GOP cannot win.

#4: Pennsylvania is in play. Romney can win without Ohio if he gets PA, WI, VA, CO, et al.

Michigan is also now in play.

Anyone who believes that this election is coming down to ONE particular state for Romney/Ryan is swallowing, hook, line and sinker, the Democrat pollster spin. The fact is, Romney/Ryan are headed for a blowout victory if Republican voter turnout is what we think it will be.

I'm very optimistic but have a few moments where I'm afraid Obama could somehow pull it out with a combination of various illegal actions

Benghazi pretty well negates any positives about Obama in foreign policy. It's been suppressed by the main streem media but Fox is on it so hard, it's gotta get some legs soon.

According to Ken Blackwell there is no way of knowing the exact votes of the early voters, they are locked away until November 6th and will be counted with the others. All the reporters can go on, when making these declarations, is the political registration of these early voters. He said there is no way for anyone to know how these early voters have voted as he explained the safety measures employed for that opportunity. Many people have concerns about early votes being tampered with and he was reassuring voters in OH that their process seemed secure.

Figure a 2% "cheat" vote. Turnout for Romney is the key. We simply must show up in great numbers to overwhelm the stolen votes for Obama.

Until the official counts are finalized I will worry about a lost or stolen election. We know too much about Dem vote fraud schemes to not be concerned. But here in WNY, just on my little street, there is not a single Obama yard sign. In fact there are only a few signs, all for Congressional and local races, all for Dems. But not a single presidential sign. I hope this bodes well for us.

My hunch is the GOP is ahead significantly in VA and CO, as well as NC, FL, NH. And, ahead but not by much in OH, IO, PA and WI. Last, I think the trend is Romney's friend. I smell an electoral blowout, as I think many pollsters do. But they don't want to call it now, since this and post-election are their times to make money.

For the dems it's Cleveland and the surrounding county. If they can get 250,000 votes there, they have a chance to win the state. For us it's turnout, turnout, turnout. During a discussion on this I heard turnout is a John Bonheur forte. Grass roots organization Ohio is excellent, too. Many fired up people on the ground working very hard to give us the state. It's definitely in play.

Democrats know that Republican turnout is always good, better than theirs. That's why they've perfected the cheating and playing to the various subgroups, hoping to just get the bodies in there.

Election results this year do have to be lawyer-proof. In my fantasies, we get a 70-30 Romney win. I know that's virtually impossible, but I dread what the leftists will come up with if their Zero Hero goes down.

And worse, if he pulls this off.

Why ANY state favors Obama, I'll never understand. Are union members that thick-headed? Really? I have personal knowledge that Democrat scare tactics work with immigrants here in the Southwest.... there's a lot lost in translation.

Karl Rove made the point that if the early voters are all die-hard Dems it won't really help Obama because they would have voted anyways. It's the marginal Obama supporters who provided the margin of victory last time and are now wavering and not rushing to the polls.

The white voters who elected Obama have largely left him and will vote for Romney. Black voters will probably still be 90% plus for Obama, but there will be vastly fewer of them voting. Many will sit this out in quiet protest over the Obama double cross. That won't show up in the polls.

I have been saying that by Halloween even Illinois will be in play, and I still believe that. Might already be, but there is no way to know because no one is polling Illinois. They all assume it is solidly Obama. Election night is going to be fun, watching all the exploding heads.

#13, you should hear the stories here in North Georgia.

My chiropractor voted almost two weeks ago and said the line to vote "streched around the building". Yesterday at the doctor's office the doc and three nurses were laughing about having to wait in line for over two hours to vote last week!

Everyone is quietly talking about it, we are voting today because the closer it gets to election day, the more it's going to look like Chick-fil-A day...on steroids!

In 2010, MN Republicans shocked everyone- including themselves, the DFL Party, and the Minneapolis Tribune- by taking the State House of Representatives.
If there had not been an Independent Party candidate to dilute the Republican governor candidate, they would likely have won the governor's race as well.

This only happened because of the Tea Party, but no one gives them credit, including the Republican apparatchiks whom benefitted.

Now, according to Rasmussen -on Monday I think, MN is within 5 points of going for Romney.
My thought is that we are much closer, and may even win here, the Patriots are all hiding in the bush, waiting patiently for Election Day to march forth in step and 'Refudiate Obamunism'.
Ohio may well be unimportant in the end.

Yesterday, I heard Bob Blabbermouth on Fox New's The Five, make that comment that Ohio early voting was already 63 to 30 in favor of Obozo. I nearly fell out of my chair until it came out that this was mostly around Cleveland and the voters were mostly college students.

As for polling, I have another comment. I read or heard somewhere(can't remember where)that some of these polling firms that poll "likely" voters won't poll someone who voted early. They already voted so they are not in the "likely" crowd.

One more thing. It the hours and days after Nov 6, look for the Dims to discover boxes just full of uncounted votes. Of course there will be some for Romney, but the large majority will be for Obozo. Just enough to put him over the top. They've been doing this as far back as 1960 that I know of. That's exactly how JFK won Illinois and that gave him the presidency.

Side note. My son just told me he is early voting in Tampa, Florida, due to travel plans. He's always registered Republican but didn't vote half the time. He had a friend who cursed him out--the black thing, of course--because he said he would never vote for obama. Thanks to his foul mouth friend and (I'd like to think) his momma's influence, he's voting for Romney. Yihoo!

Hillbuzz also claimed in 2008 that a McPain victory was a sure thing. Take nothing for granted. On paper anyway Mitt would appear to be doing well but nothing is for real 'til Nov 6. We ignored the polls when we were behind in 2008 believing we would win. We should ignore them now until the job is complete.

Thanks #35. I'm with you 100%. Prayer needs to be at the head of all our lists as we ask our Almighty God and Father for another chance to be worthy of this wonderful nation and return it to what He commands and what our founding fathers so well wrote in our governing documents. The day the Obamas leave the White House is the first step as we publicly return to standing up for our nation and demanding that the lies, the betrayals, the selling out of America, and all we don't know that this man has done comes to a stop. Nothing more is needed, however, having just read about the cries for help in Benghazi being deliberately turned aside further sickens and disgusts me. I'm counting the minutes until the 6th of November.

The returned Democrat early voting ballots in Ohio are already down 120,000 from this time last election. Keep in mind the crossover vote Romney will get from that bunch too. Also, they eliminated almost 450,000 dead/fake ballots off of their rolls this year.

Go back to your library and data base and read just a little of whatever you have, remind yourself, of the stealth of communism
Their favorite 2 steps forward, 1 step back.
All our governments have been quietly moving towards more collectivism and less individualism. This election is the closest
we've come to dropping over the cliff to fiscal default leading to more government power in the hands of a declared, raging redistributionist, a phrase also known to all the free world as a proponent of the basic rule of communism. Violently take from one and give to the other. That's all it is, and this election turns on that theft. There is a massive underworld of stealth, covert, communism in our great country and their power is now being put to its ultimate dirty tricks reactionary biggest test. Anything but a landslide for Mitt will net an underworld fraudulent victory for Obama. It is that simple. Hollywood, academe, all the TV Diane Sawyers and non essential government bureaucrats, welfare entitlement addicts, all working for the fiscal downfall of this great nation. It's madness and communism IS at the base of all this deceptive crime.
There ample books describing communism for that small percentage who read, but there are NO HOLLYWOOD MOVIES on communism for the masses to see. NONE. The deception is magnificent. The Rule of Silence is the word
Hollywood has protected Communism with silence. Ben Shapiro attacked this reality in his bestseller PRIMETIME PROPAGANDA.

Nobody I know ever thought McCain had the 2008 race in his pocket, especially after the financial meltdown. The best I felt about McCain was around Labor Day, 2008, when Sarah was tapped to be on the ticket. Three weeks out from the election, I knew McCain was history because the excitement for 0 was electric. Much different this time around!

We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.

Polling Shows Obama Leading In Ohio

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama. In 2008, Obama won independents in the state by

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
