    Now, I have noticed this myself. As a matter of fact, I was going to start a thread on what I noticed. So, this is as good a time as any.

    I use Rasmussen as my example, because A) Rasumussen was the most accurate poll in 2008 as to what the final tallies were for the election and B) Rasmussen uses LIKELY VOTERS not "people" as some polls that show Obama WILDLY ahead.

    Now (for example) over the weekend, there was a tie between the candidates, but today it shows Romney +2 (which is within the margin of error, so you still might as well call it a tie)
    Daily Presidential Tracking Poll - Rasmussen Reports™

    BUT, notice this from the same organization!

    WOW! Obama approval poll is MINUS 19!!!!!!!
    Obama Approval Index History - Rasmussen Reports™

    And then you go to the Generic Ballot and Republicans are ahead by an average of 5%!
    Generic Congressional Ballot - Rasmussen Reports™

    So, something is askew here people. Why such wildly divergent numbers. I think Rush Limbaugh is right.

    No one wants to tell a pollster that they aren't going to vote for the black guy. They don't want to appear racist.

    But, they can say they don't approve of hisn policies and they can say they will more likely vote for Republicans.

    It's extremely illogical, but since when are people always logical.

    It's something to watch. But something on the Obama vs. Romney numbers just don't add up.

    Especially when you see Democrats running to the tall grass rather than go to the convention or even be SEEN with Obama.

    Remember the Bradley Effect.

    White people don't want to tell a pollster they aren't going to vote for the black guy to avoid any possibility of being thought of as a racist.

    The Obamanation is way, way behind.

    Yeah, I think the Dems not wanting to show up for the convention, and the desperation I'm seeing from libs bringing out old talking points already debunked shows, they know their time is almost up.

    Ah yes, the Bradley Effect.

    That was why the rightwing nuts said that Obama wasn't going to beat Hillary or McCain, even when the polls said otherwise.

    You should be embarassed to post something that stupid. If you had any self-esteem whatsoever.

    They had Reagan way behind in the polls right up until election day, and then he won in a total land slide. Election polls are practically worthless. They're meaningless, easily manipulated and aren't a good indication of anything other than what some news or polling entity wants you to believe.

    The kenyan will lose, and lose big. He won by lying his face off during his campaign, but there's enough people that bought those lies that won't be fooled again. He has lost those swing votes, period. He has zero chance of being reelected.
