    Today's Rasmussen poll has Obama five points ahead of Romney and no wonder this is bad news for Romney supporters. Seems that Obama got a huge bounce from the convention. But let's not forget that just a few days ago, Romney was in the lead by 4 points. So what this is showing is that these numbers are very volatile, and no one can tell in one week from now how they are going to look, let alone how they're going to look next to the election day. Anything can happen. Small details might make difference.

    Shit doesn't flow uphill. Romney is toast.

    Are you counting with the eggs before they're out of the chicken's ass? I wouldn't do that, Lakhota. Read my OP again.

    Rasmussen is hard right propaganda and not credible. All the other reliable pollsters put Willard at about +1 or a tie after the RNC. He barely made a blip, but that's not surprising as the only thing anyone was talking about was Eastwood's senile speech.

    The dems absolutely hit a grand slam at the DNC and it honestly couldn't have gone any better and the polls reflect that. Obama's numbers in the polls have skyrocketed

    Rasmussen is not hard right propaganda, it's the most accurate poll buddy. Obama has received a big bounce but it won't last forever. Like I said no one knows how the poll numbers will be one week from now.

    Maybe to the right wingers, to everyone else it's the fox news of polls

    Everyone knows how the economy is very bad under Obama. This alone is a reason why you guys are delusional when you say Obama has already won.

    This is a see saw race for sure. I just put up a thread with a Romney adviser saying that the reports of the Romney team giving up is "horseshit" to use his descriptive word.

    Lib media trying to convince us that the Romney/Ryan ticket are just ready to throw in the towel when the election is only 60 some odd days away borders on assinine.

    5 point bump after a convention is normal from what I've read. Both sides get bumps. Then we come down to the nitty gritty when polling really tightens up after Labor Day.

    Rasmussen is always deadly accurate when it comes to polls. Check their poll numbers for previous elections and the actual results, they are almost equal.

    I just provided you with a link showing how Rasmusen is wildly biased to the right, i'd love for you to provide me with one (not from a right wing propaganda outlet) stating how they are "always deadly accurate"
