    They have suddenly gone crazy leaving those of us who follow the polls scratching our heads and wondering what's going on.

    Obama suddenly UP by 5+, 6+, 7+ and higher!! For no discernible reason.

    The economy still sucks and now we have the murder of 4 in Libya and Islamic countries going up in flames.

    And why is it that with all this unexplained craziness going on, Ras and Gallup plod along with the race seemingly still basically tied, give or take a few?

    Because we have suddenly been invaded by "pollsters" no one has ever heard of whose methodology is very questionable. My favorite example is a poll that ended up on RCP that polled ALL adults with not even a breakdown by PARTY! Amazing and laughable!

    I would seriously like to know what the creds are for these newbies [and some oldies] in the polling business. Trying to give their candidate a boost? Trying to make you believe it's all over? Don't bother to vote 'cause your candidate has already lost?

    Personally I don't think anyone really cares except the media who can't seem to stop talking about it and continuing to pass these phony numbers on.

    'Tis indeed the silly season.

    The 47% are making themselves known.

    Already a dead issue.

    The "47%" issue only resonated with the hyper-partisan k00ks........nobody else. Thats because they think this class warfare crap is a universal sentiment despite the fact that its never won a general election in the history of the republic.:D:D Too.......Romney releasing his tax returns showing he donated over 4 million to chairity is a direct kick to the balls of the k00ks because that is 2 issues that are now GONE!!! Why? Because to the 7% or 8% in the center, it will speak volumes, especially in a totally crap economy ( crap except to the k00ks who rant that it is booming):2up:

    President Obama 247 Governor Romney 191

    RealClearPolitics - 2012 Election Maps - Electoral Map

    Romney is behind in every tossup state save North Carolina, and leads there only by 1.8%. In the meantime, the President has Virginia and Ohio by over 4% each. That easily would propel him past 270 is this holds to 6Nov12.

    Wrong! The 47% are the quiet ones who will not forget.
    They are not the ones who attend Tea Party rallys and such.

    It's not a dead issue, it's just getting started. That hidden video of Willard is extremely damning against him, plus throw on top of that him still hiding his tax returns, releases one year where he fudged the numbers to purposely pay more, and on top of that by doing so, said he's not fit to be president.

    Willard is sinking his own ship.
