CNN Poll: Obama 50%-Romney 46% in Ohio
CNN, by Paul Steinhauser

Original Article

Posted By:Stallion_Cornell, 10/26/2012 6:26:35 PM

With a week and a half to go until Election Day, a new poll indicates the race for arguably the most important battleground state remains very close. According to a CNN/ORC International survey released Friday, President Barack Obama holds a four point advantage over Republican nominee Mitt Romney in the contest for Ohio's much fought over 18 electoral votes.

Comments:
They don't give the party breakdown and how much they oversample the Democrats, but you don't need it to recognize that something is seriously wrong with this poll. It has Obama leading Romney among independents by five points, 49 to 44. Every other Ohio poll has Romney leading among independents by double digits. Do they even care how ridiculous they're going to look when Romney blows this election out of the water?

I just don't know what to think. Really, Ohio? I hate living here. I try to be optimistic. Last night, for example, I drove down a street in what is probably the most liberal neighborhood in Columbus (liberal white know-it-all former hippies or OSU professors, not urban minorities). I saw 12 Obama signs, and much to my surprise, 7 Romney signs. Four years ago, no homeowner in that neighborhood would have had a McCain sign. So I try to be optimistic. Then I see this stuff. Sheesh.

CNN Polls are not meant to report, they are meant to propagandize.

Another drive by poll. No supporting data! They probably used d+10 or more to get this result.

After today's news about Benghazi, even lifetime demonrats will be trashing their 0-gear.

A trip to Real Clear Politics' polling section will show you how crazy things are getting.

While today's CNN poll shows Obama at 50% in Ohio, another poll published yesterday shows Obama receiving 53% in California, a number which is corroborated by a poll taken a few days previously.

Ohio is nothing like California. They might almost be polar opposites. Certainly, it makes no sense for a state run by the liberal Jerry Brown to be only 3% more favorable to Obama than Ohio, which is governed by the Conservative John Kasich.

Something is very wrong here.

They also don't make the phone calls. They use an adding machine to determine the results. No matter what numbers you punch in, Zerobama is ahead.

CNN poll? Who tallied that poll, Candy Crowley?

With the media being protected by the First Amendment, it's about time to address their societal responsibilities regarding the truth. Bald-faced lies told to manipulate the population should have serious consequences.

If the shop that mounts your new tires leaves off most of the nuts holding on the wheels and somebody gets injured or killed, do they get to include an 'oopsie' in the next newspaper ad and all's forgotten?

While it is very possible that California has 53% going for Obama...I still wonder if it will really be that easy for him to win this state considering how the mood has been here. Wouldn't it be funny if he actually lost California???? I can only pray. Either way, if (when?) Romney wins on Nov. 6th, I will be screaming and yelling and running down the street in joy and laughter and I don't CARE if they want to cart me off to the funny farm for being so ecstatic!!!

I've been checking out hillbuzz.org for the past couple of weeks. Kevin DuJan is the writer and he is from Ohio and his take on it is very optimistic. I don't know, I tend to believe him over CNN. His numbers make way more sense.

And, I just don't understand why it's ALWAYS coming down to Ohio. Maybe they should be the only state that votes if it's all about them every time.

- The Big Lie is winning for Obama in Ohio. They repeat over and over that Romney would have let the car companies go bust and close shop. The truth is that Obama saved the UAW, he did not save the car companies who should have gone through a real bankruptcy and become viable, not a Obama style bankruptcy where they did not get the real relief they needed for the long term. The truth is more complicated, and my fear is that Obama's simple Big Lie will prevail.
- Early Voting is a joke. It's more like Card Check for the Democrats, than an election. They just work their lists and badger and bribe disinterested voters who would never have the interest to turn out on a single election day.

Early Voting must go! The campaign is not over until it is over, and that is election day, not a few days before even the first debate. This is a travesty in progress!

Few, if any, political topics are as controversial as abortion — mainly because it is so difficult to find any common ground here in the United States. Yet internationally, there is more of a consensus on the subject than many people realize. Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina recently appeared on ABC´s "This Week" and made an observation that may come as a surprise to many abortion-rights advocates. "There are only four countries in the world that have, that legalize abortion after five months," she noted. She identified those countries as being China, North Korea, Canada and the United States.

As “The Bible,” the History Channel’s blockbuster miniseries, broke ratings records, it also likely astounds credulous Hollywood executives who, despite overwhelming evidence of the massive pent-up demand for quality religious entertainment, are always caught flat-footed when such entertainment is rewarded with ratings, ticket sales and lots of cash.

My grandfather, Wallace F. Bennett, retired from the United States Senate in 1974, four years before my personal chronology reached into double digits. Thus I have no memory of him serving in Congress, but as an adult, I’ve come to appreciate his legacy, particularly in two areas — his strong support for the 1964 landmark Civil Rights Act and his 1954 introduction of a formal resolution of censure against Sen. Joe McCarthy for acting in a manner “contrary to good morals and senatorial ethics.”

Now here we are a few weeks later with a dead heat in nationwide polls.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

5 Reasons Why Republicans

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft
