Barack Obama Tanking in Gallup Poll, Romney 52% – Obama 45%


Drip, drip, drip …

WOW, the 7 day rolling average Gallup poll has Mitt Romney up by 7 points over President Barack Obama, 52% to 45%. The gap is widening and with a good debate this coming Monday, Romney could finish Obama off once and for all and break the election wide open.

It would appear that Obama just showing up and doing better than the first debate, which was not hard to do, has not affected the polling. Romney is starting to separate himself.

Hot Air reminds us also that Rasmussen now has Romney up by 2% over Obama in their tracking poll. It appears that their individuals polled were not impressed by Obama’s debate performance either.

Interestingly, Romney’s 49% is solid with or without leaners.  Without leaners, Obama only gets to 46%. Among those “certain” to vote, Romney leads 46/44.  Republicans now have an eight-point advantage on enthusiasm, 83/75, with independents nearly as enthused as Democrats at 72%.

Romney is starting to see a lot of polls in his favor as seen at Real Clear Politics. This is interesting, ABC News touts the Romney lead in the Gallup poll and in the process references their own recent poll that where an ABC/WAPO poll had Obama ahead of Romney 49% to 46%. Funny they should bring this up because in order to give Obama a three point lead over Romney, the hacks at ABC/WAPO had to provide a +9D sampling.  Yea, that is believable. In Obama’s once in a life time election in 2008 Democrats  had a +7 turnout. So ABC/WAPO thinks that Democrats are going to turn out even more? Not likely.

901. Generally speaking, do you usually think of yourself as (a Democrat), (a Republican), an independent or what?

      I believed the theory by some blogs last month that something “funny” was going on in the polls and this month would sort it out. I do think OWE lost the 2 debates and Biden further proved he was the fool we always thought he was; I also think there were a lot of people on the fence about Romney. They didn’t know who he was but they were looking for alternatives to Owe.

      I believe the debates provided the alternative. Romney and Ryan were not shown to be the boogie man Owe and Biden tried to portray.

      For these reasons, the polls turned. 1. Made up lead for Owe by liberal polls; 2. People on the fence saw a Presidential Romney and jumped.

      Barry did show up in lot better shape than the first debate. Of course if Candy Crowley had not helped Barry so much, the debate would have been much more one sided than it was.

      When are the Republicans going to show some spine and put a stop to having every debate where a liberal moderator is there? Stupid as can be to allow this go on and on.

      #1 His real name isn’t Barak. fact
      #2 His last real name isn’t Obama. fact.
      #3 He picked Hussein for a middle, just for kicks.

      How sick is that – a man could legally change his name to “Zippy Doodads” and become an American President?

      I cry foul. I think the CIA has a little Manchurian Candidate farm somewhere outside of Reston,VA. They are currently working on the next “model” that will make us turn our heads sideways, like dogs in disbelief.

      P.S. Ann Romney is hot as a firecracker at 60! Mitt must be a very happy boy. :) Much love for the “Mittens” over here. It’s called good taste and more people should have it. I highly recommend it if you have the means. -Ferris

      ON MONDAYS, Wednesdays and Fridays, I like Mitt Romney’s policies. On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, not so much, because he reverses what he said the day before. Sundays he

      refuses to give any specifics about his


      Half the time, I like Barack Obama’s policies. When I don’t, at least I know what they are.

      what a hoot, last month the polls couldn’t be trusted? now they are acurate? I afraid you’ll be spending the next 4 years complaining about the next Florida ballot count cuz this year the young republicans aren’t going to be allowed to bum rush the counting locations unmolested. I hope they try!
