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.

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.

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.

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

Mitt Romney and President Obama each racked up early and expected victories Tuesday night in relatively safe territory, while some of the biggest battlegrounds that will decide the election remained too close to call. All the big swing states where polls have closed -- Florida, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia and North Carolina -- were too close to call, Fox News projects. (Snip) Obama will also win three of Maine's four electoral votes, Fox News projects. It is unclear where the state's fourth electoral vote will fall. The latest batch of poll closings, and results, has allowed Obama to take

So far Tuesday the former Massachusetts governor has taken other reliably red states including Kentucky and West Virginia. Romney leads in the Electoral College with 24 electoral votes to President Obama’s three.

As expected, the presidential race is tight in Ohio, where the polls just closed: President Obama is winning women 55 percent to 44 percent in the early CBS News exit poll, while Mitt Romney is leading 52 percent to 46 percent among men. Women made up 51 percent of the electorate, compared to 49 percent among women. Thirty-nine percent of voters so far identified themselves as Democrats, compared to 30 percent calling themselves Republican. Thirty-one percent identified as independent or something else, and Romney has a big edge among this group - 56 percent to 40 percent for Mr. Obama.

As expected, Republican candidate for President, Mitt Romney, won West Virginia’s five electoral votes in Tuesday’s General Election over President Barack Obama. National media outlets called the race in West Virginia shortly after polls closed at 7:30 p.m. President Obama’s fate in West Virginia has never been in question, as he garnered just 60 percent of the democratic vote in the May primary. The other 40 percent of that vote went to Texas federal inmate Keith Judd, who was placed on the ballot in West Virginia. President Obama has been hugely unpopular in the Mountain State since he first ran

Early exit polls show Election Day voters are slightly more Republican than in 2008 and broadly concerned about the state of the U.S. economy. Six in 10 voters said the economy is their top issue according to the poll, which was released by The Associated Press and conducted on behalf of a consortium of media companies. Less than a quarter of voters said their families were better off than four years ago — a point seized on by many Republicans as the results leaked out.

All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have called on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to end the “partisan” investigation into the Benghazi attack “and begin focusing instead on conducting responsible oversight to implement constructive reforms.” The Dems, led by ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), charged that the probe “has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate.” They proceeded to outline those instances in the five-page letter. “Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television — and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process —

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

In an address to the House on Wednesday, Alabama Representative Mo Brooks read aloud a letter sent to him by Dr. Marlin Gill of Decatur. The letter holds nothing back while detailing the excessive costs and regulations that Dr. Gill calls Obamacare’s “war against doctors.” Here is the full text of the letter, courtesy of Rep. Brooks’ office: Dear Congressman Brooks, As a practicing family physician, I plead for help against what I can best characterize as Washington’s war against doctors.

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook. That playbook was laid out in a

A University of Virginia student arrested by Alcoholic Beverage Control agents who wrongly believed she´d illegally bought beer when in fact she only had bottled water is seeking $40 million in a lawsuit filed Tuesday. Elizabeth K. Daly, 21, alleges malicious prosecution, six counts of assault and battery and failure to appropriately train ABC agents in the suit which names the state and seven agents involved in her arrest.

Please, try not to let what I’m about to tell you destroy your faith in the integrity of the national Democratic Party. Right now, a crime wave is sweeping the nation, and everyone in this out-of-control mob has a D after their names, even if most of the media are loath to report it. If you are a low-information voter, a Globe subscriber, say, you have been told endlessly that the root of all evil in American politics is the Tea Party, better known in your moonbat media as “teabaggers.” Oddly, however, the hacks rounded up over the last few days, well,

Ann Furedi, of BPAS, said the law does not prevent women from choosing a termination on the grounds of gender and she even compared it to abortion after rape. Mrs Furedi´s comments come weeks after it was disclosed that the CPS had decided not to prosecute two doctors who were exposed by a Daily Telegraph investigation arranging terminations purely because the unborn baby was a girl. A group of 50 MPs, drawn from across the party divide, then wrote to this newspaper warning that the decision was a “step back in the fight for gender equality” and effectively changes the law without

Only "mere scraps of data documented" Barack Obama´s mother´s "days in Seattle," writes Obama biographer David Maraniss in his 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article. And it appears that the only "scraps" of evidence of Obama´s mother´s time in Seattle during 1961-1962 was a listing in a Seattle Polk directory and a University of Washington (UW) transcript. And it appears that the only "mere scraps" of evidence of baby Barack´s time in Seattle are
