Obama's internal numbers are down
« on: October 28, 2012, 07:05:13 PM »
A new poll from the Democrat-friendly Public Policy Polling shows some internals that should be deeply troubling for any president seeking re-election.

Although Gov. Romney is up by just one percentage point in this poll, his favorability ratings are at +4:  49 percent favorable to 45 percent unfavorable.  The president's favorability numbers are just the opposite, at -4:  46 percent favorable against 50 percent unfavorable.

And--this could be enormous--Gov. Romney actually leads among independents by an astounding 16 percentage points!

This is why the polls will make it appear again that Obama gains but will slide down to reality shortly before the election.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Yeah, but Hurricane Sandy is going to turn it all around for Obama.  And besides, if you go read Nate Silver - and we all know how smart he is - Obama as 73.8% of the vote even now.  :silly:

The media will act like Sandy is the worst thing and 'survival' is at risk.

The worst scenario is Obama demanding PA get a free day to vote after voting for weeks. Turnout in Philly is done. Unless Biden goes to Philly and drags 300% votes out of the city, who cares? The media have not hyped the Obama PA undervote and how democratic towns in Ohio are going Romney. Obama could easily lose PA. NYC and NJ were already Obama's.
