    How many of these threads about the exact same thing are we going to be forced to endure from curseofhistory? Talk about spamming the board.

    It is ultimately true, however.

    Election sentiment tracking lags far behind technological advances.

    Another good thing to look at... sentiment on social media. It's no scientific poll, but it certainly does give a picture of a block of people ordinarily overlooked with standard polling.

    Again, no true poll, but a very telling sentiment indication.

    Obama has never been behind in the electoral math. I know some will bring up RCP but, for some reason, it has PA, WI, an MI as still undecided; they were decided (with the exception of WI) months ago.

    It's because they are giving equal weighting to the nonsense Gallup poll giving Romney a +7. It skews the rolling avererage by more than a point.

    In the real world, Barry is toast...

    What do you know that thousands of others don't.

    Maybe you should write them and let them know that they are wasting their time.

    That or shut up.
