    POLL: RACE TIGHT AS OBAMA EDGE NARROWS TO 2 PTS...

    SWING STATE DAILY TRACKING: O 47%, R 45%...

    CNN: OBAMA +6...

    POLLED MORE DEMS?

    ABCNEWSWASHPOST LIKELY VOTERS: O 49% R 48%...

    ... SURVEYED 33% DEMOCRAT, 23% REPUBLICAN

    GALLUP FLASHBACK: MONDALE TOPS REAGAN...

    WHICH POLLS WERE MOST ACCURATE IN '08?

    DRUDGE REPORT 2012®

    They are over sampling Democrats to get the Results they want.

    They aren't doing this to show Obama ahead. They are doing this to convice Conservatives Obama is so ahead it's no use. They might as well stay home and not bother voting.

    They are hoping to dispirit Romney supporters.

    The liberal media will try any trick to try and get their guy over the finish line.

    Remember they called Florida for Gore in 2000, with only 1% of the results in.

    People got out of line waiting to vote for Bush, (in Florida) because they thought the election was over and it was no use.

    They will try anything to keep you from voting.

    Don't fall for usual tricks.

    Obama is going to win easily--5 million votes or so; 300-320 Electoral Votes. Book it. Hope you like your new sig line

    I don't believe anyone can disparage Conservatives and Independents from voting this year with the stakes so high.. I think the base is beyond motivated. The Liberal Media are nothing but liars.. This may have worked before the new Media ruled the day, but no longer.. they've lost their hold on voters who can now turn to other resources for news, UNFILTERED AND FACTUAL.

    One fact remains, conservatives get out and exercise their constitutional right to vote and liberals leave it up to everyone else.

    Yes, the pollsters are willing to stake their reputations and livelihood on incorrect poll numbers just to show Obama ahead.

    Checking the methodology of any poll now is crucial. We've seen many of them even poll "adults" as compared to "likely voters" as well as the continual oversampling of Democrats so they can get their blazing headlines.

    real clear politics average obama +3.1

    unlike last week, no polls show romney tied or ahead. last week there were at least two.

    gallup has president at+5

    i saw rasmussen at +5 but that's not showing on RCP yet...

    CNN Opinion Research at +6 for obama

    RCP Avg

    Obama 48.3
    Romney 45.4

    RealClearPolitics - Election 2012 - General Election: Romney vs. Obama

    you're delusional... but then again, we knew that.
