Final POLITICO/George Washington University Battleground Tracking Poll has it a Dead Heat With Romney Winning Independents by 15 Points, Huh?


Weren’t we told by the MSM that this election would be won by which candidate won the Independent vote?

One of two things are true with the polls … 1) The pollsters/media have no idea what the outcome will be . 2) The pollsters/media do not want to tell America the truth that Romney is beating Obama.

Case in point, the final POLITICO/George Washington University Battleground tracking poll has the race between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama a dead heat, tied at 48%. At first glance one would say, well that’s par for the course. Many of the polls have it a tie or near tie, within the margin of error. Until one reads the following, Romney is winning Independents 15 points, 47% to 32%. Seriously, how is a poll tied if one candidate as a 15 point lead with Independents?

The presidential race is tied going into Election Day.

The final POLITICO/George Washington University Battleground Tracking Poll of 1,000 likely voters — conducted Sunday and Monday — shows Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama each claiming 47 percent nationally.

Our previous poll, conducted Monday through Thursday of last week, found the race tied at 48 percent. Although Romney and Obama have each led at times, the two candidates have stayed within the margin of error since the spring.

Independents break for Romney by 15 points, 47 percent to 32 percent.

      I am very DISAPPOINTED in the American people tonight. To have re elected the Lying King. I Pray that our Country can survive another 4 years. It’s a sad day for America. I feel bad for my children and grand children. We no longer live in a free America.

      yes, you dó live in a free country. You have freedom of speech, of choice, of moving around, of vote, of religion: what is nót free about that? You also are part of a bigger world, where huge numbers of people lack one of those things or all of them.
      I’m looking at reactions like yours with utter amazement: why are you that scared? Who tells you to be? And do you really believe that?

      I guess this means that there is more evil than good in our country. We all have to realize that our country is in decline.

      I am still not so sure he won.

      For some odd reason – people put blind faith in these media morons. Because it has been reliable, so we believed, for many decades. They spent years in investing in our faith – before betraying it.

      …but think about it – we took their word on mathematical projections… by people who cannot even count without an iPad in front of them. ABC couldn’t even maintain power for broadcast! These people are lucky to have jobs! They are the things by which moist dreams are interrupted – and in general, all around dolts & ef ups. However, perception is everything in this world! This will, in all probability, be swallowed wholesale, no questions asked. No recount. 4 more years of Sir Richard Head – ONWARD AND UPWARD – BACKWARD AND NOT FORWARD. I’ll lock and reload and be swingin’ again in 2016, as will most. Born a free American – and will die one! Count on it.

      might be time to believe that people in tghe industry know a bit more than you…..
      this wasn’t even close and is very close to what the state polls were saying.
      I guess you could unskew the results
      The vast majority of this country is not far right wing. Goodbye Rush, Carl Rove, Sanunu, Dick Morris and the rest

      Hey Red
      PA, OHIO, NH, WI, MI, VA…….
      just where was this mittmentum you spoke about?
      Loved it when it came out last night how PA was just a panic attack because the REAL polls showed Mittens getting trounced in OHIO.

      America pushed back big on “snake oil” politics.
      SM: No, conservatives did not vote for Romney. Also, Obama received far fewer votes that he did in 2008.

      he UnSkewed averages of swing state polls shows Romney leads in nine of the 11 key swing states and the map below shows those states in pink and the two swing states where Obama leads in light blue. Below that are the averages for each states and a link to the UnSkewed Polls pages for each swing state.
