So who won the Vice Presidential debate … Paul Ryan 48% – Joe Biden 44%.
With no all due respect to CNN, we won’t call it a draw because if Biden had won your post debate poll, neither would you have. A majority of those polled both said that both candidates did better than they expected; however, by a 50%-41% margin, debate watchers say that Ryan rather than Biden better expressed himself. Maybe that is because Biden spent most of the debate attacking Ryan and interrupting him when Biden was not smirking and laughing. This is also why the Obama-Biden plan back-fired and Ryan won the likability vote over Biden 53% to 43%.
Forty-eight percent of voters who watched the vice presidential debate think that Rep. Paul Ryan won the showdown, according to a CNN/ORC International nationwide poll conducted right after Thursday night’s faceoff. Forty-four percent say that Vice President Joe Biden was victorious. The Republican running mate’s four point advantage among a debate audience that was more Republican than the country as a whole is within the survey’s sampling error.
CNN conducts post Presidential debate poll … ROMNEY WINS 67% to 25% FOR OBAMA.
From start to finish of the 1st Presidential debate in Denver, Colorado, GOP Presidential challenger Mitt Romney was on the offensive and not only laid out his plan as to how be was going to get America back to work, grow the economy and make the United States energy independent, Romney lambasted Obama on his failed four years in office. At one point during the debate I thiought that Obama was going to throw in the towel as Romney KO’d BO. Barack Obama has had the past four years to make changes and has done little, what he has done has failed or made matters worse. Romney stated that more of the Obama status quo was bad for America.
It would appear that those watching the debates agreed with Mitt Romney as the early post debate, CNN polls have Obama winning the debate in a landslide. A CBS poll also had Obama winning big. How bad was it for Obama, even Chris Mathews after whining and losing his mind admitted Romney won.
“No presidential candidate has topped 60% in that question since it was first asked in 1984,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.
While nearly half of debate watchers said the showdown didn’t make them more likely to vote for either candidate, 35% said the debate made them more likely to vote for Romney while only 18% said the faceoff made them more likely to vote to re-elect the president.
More than six in ten said that president did worse than expected, with one in five saying that Obama performed better than expected. Compare that to the 82% who said that Romney performed better than expected.
“It looked like Romney wanted to be there and President Obama didn’t want to be there,” noted Democratic strategist and CNN contributor James Carville. “The president didn’t bring his ‘A’ game.”
A CNN/ORC International poll of 430 people who watched the debate showed 67% thought Romney won, compared to 25% for Obama.
Romney’s strongest moments came in repeating his frequent criticism of Obama’s record, saying the nation’s high unemployment and sluggish economic recovery showed the president’s policies haven’t worked.
“There’s no question in my mind if the president is re-elected, you’ll continue to see a middle-class squeeze,” Romney said, adding that another term for Obama also will mean the 2010 Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, “will be fully installed.”
At another point, he noted how $90 billion spent on programs and policies to develop alternative energy sources could have been devoted to hiring teachers or other needs that would bring down unemployment.
Hot Air has numerous tweets of opinions of who won and impressions of the debate. Here are some of the doozies.
More tweets from CNN that show that Romney is a stronger leader than Obama.
and yet more tweets
EXIT QUESTION … Was Obama off his game or was he privy to new jobs numbers info that will come out tomorrow of first time unemployment claims for tehe week and on Friday, the September unemployment rate?
Another Comical Faux Poll From CNN … Obama Up on Romney 50% to 47% … Romney Winning Independents By 8 Points, Huh?
More “FAUX” polling from CNN … CNN says that race remains close, but Obama ahead, REALLY? The in the tank for Obama media trting to sway an election.
The polls are starting to resemble a SNL skit.According to the most recent CNN poll, Obama garners 50% of the vote and GOP Presidential challenger Mitt Romney captures 47%. However, this lead has diminished from from a CNN poll taken after the conventions, Sept. 7-9, 2012, where Obama had a 52% – 46% lead.
Obama lead? He is losing Independents by 11% to Romney
Fifty-percent of likely voters questioned in the CNN survey, which was released Monday, say that if the election were held today, they would vote for the president, with 47% saying they would support Romney, the former Massachusetts governor. The president’s three point margin is within the poll’s sampling error.
Full Poll results can be seen HERE.
However, buried in the details of the polling data is the following …Romney has as 11 point lead with Independents, but trails in the poll by 3. How is that possible? Haven’t we been told that it would be the “Independent” vote that would decide the election? This is what happens when a bias media affects polling data and weights the polling sampling by +8 Democrat.
As stated at Powerline, The Parade of Bad Polls, Continued. Is Romney surging in the CNN poll? Nope, they cut the sampling from +12 D to +8 to get an Obama 3 point lead. So what happens when CNN takes the poll sampling to a more reasonable+2D? Why that would mean a Romney 3 point lead of course.
Today the Romney campaign is trumpeting the latest CNN/ORC poll which shows President Obama with a three-point lead over Mitt Romney among likely voters, 50%-47%. The Romney campaign likes this result, apparently, because it represents a significant improvement over the last CNN/ORC poll, which came out three weeks ago. In that survey, CNN/ORC found a six-point Obama lead.
I wrote about the earlier poll here, pointing out that it obviously over-sampled Democrats. A reader calculated that, given other data in the survey, the six-point difference was consistent with a breakdown of D-38%, R-26% and I-36%. I wrote that the most significant point in the CNN poll results was that independents favored Romney over Obama by a remarkable 14 points.
So today’s CNN/ORC poll has Obama’s lead cut in half, to three points. Does that mean that Romney is surging? Not really. It means they didn’t call quite as many Democrats. This time, the pollsters gave us the partisan breakdown of their sample: D-37%, R-29% and I-34%. So when the partisan gap in the sample narrowed from D +12 to D +8, Romney did three points better. Well, yeah.
CNN Poll Has Obama Up by 6% Over Romney, But Is He? New Skewed, Bias Poll by the MSM Samples Democrats 50.4%, Republicans 45.4% & Independents at 4.2%
Who needs Democrat voter fraud, when we have Democrat skewed polling fraud …
A CNN poll following the DNC convention has President Barack Obama up by 6% over Mitt Romney. Wow, that’s a big post convention bounce. It seems almost unbelievable, too good to be true for Obama and Democrats. Certainly seems to be great news for Obama at face value. However, as many of us have come to realize when it comes to the corrupt liberal media complex, they cannot be trusted.
A new survey indicates President Barack Obama moved up four points following the Democratic National Convention last week, and now has a six point advantage over his Republican challenger Mitt Romney.
According to a CNN/ORC International Poll (PDF) released Monday, 52% of likely voters nationwide back the president, compared to 46% for Romney. Just before the convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, Obama was tied with Romney 48%-48%.
If you thought the CNN polling numbers were a bit far fetched, guess what, they were. As reported at the Examiner, the CNN ORC International was incredibly skewed to Democrats. How bad did CNN skew the poll? Take a look, the sample for the CNN/ORC poll includes 50.4% Democrats and 45.4% Republicans and appears to have only 4.2% independents. Seriously? This should be considered polling fraud. The liberal media takes a fraudulent poll like this and then makes it part of the news cycle. All based upon a purposeful misrepresentation of the fact.
The latest CNN/ORC poll released today shows a wider lead for President Obama than the previous CNN/ORC poll but it is doubly skewed. It massively under-samples independents while it also over-samples Democratic voters. The CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll official reports Obama at 52 to percent and Mitt Romney at 46 percent. Unskewed, the data reveals a 53 percent to 45 percent lead for Romney.
This new CNN/ORC survey, unlike many other analyzed, not only over-samples Democratic voters, but also massively under-samples independent voters, to produce a result more favorable to Barack Obama. This survey’s sample includes 397 registered Republicans and 441 registered Democrats. But the survey included a total of 822 registered voters, leaving only 37 independent voters at most. The survey clearly under-sampled independent and Republican voters.
The reality is that if a more accurate number of Republicans and Independents were included the poll would show Mitt Romney leading 53 percent to 45 percent for Obama. Ain’t that amazing? It just does not fit the liberal MSM narrative to get Obama reelected.
It would appear that Rep. Paul Ryan (WI-R) has all the right stuff and was a great choice by Mitt Romney o he his VP on the GOP 2012 Presidential ticket. According to CNN and recent polls following the addition of Ryan as the Republican VP candidate, Wisconsin has been moved to a “true” toss up state in the 2012 electoral map. What a difference 4 years makes. In 2008 Obama defeated McCain in Wisconsin 56% to 43%, now it’s a toss up. If a double digit Obama win in 2008 is now a toss up in 2012 … Obama, you have a problem and not just in Wisconsin.
Biden to Obama: This is a big F’n deal, Wisconsin is not a toss up state.
CNN Thursday turned the important battleground state of Wisconsin from “lean Obama” to true “toss up” on its electoral map, in the wake of Mitt Romney’s naming of House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, a seven term congressman from the Badger state, as his running mate.
With Wisconsin’s move to true “toss up,” the CNN Electoral Map now suggests Obama leading in states with a combined 237 electoral votes, Romney ahead in states with a combined 206 electoral votes, and states with 95 electoral votes up for grabs. 270 electoral votes are needed with win the White House.
While Obama won Wisconsin by double digits, Sen. John Kerry, the 2004 Democratic nominee, narrowly captured the Badger State, over President George W. Bush, and Vice President Al Gore edged out Bush in the state in the 2000 contest. It appears the 2012 contest in Wisconsin will be much closer to those competitive contests than the 2008 election.
Even though the CNN poll has Obama still ahead it is important to point oit that it is with registered voters. When polling “likely” voters, Rasmussen has Romney ahead by 1%. However, CNN did not release the partisan demographic breakdown of those polled so its impossible to see just how weighted this poll was for Democrats. Much more analysis at Hot Air.
RUT-ROH … Obama All Tied Up in Hypothetical Presidential Match Up with Mitt Romney and Ron Paul
So much for Barack Obama just having to worry about a head to head match up between himself and an unnamed Republican for the 2012 Presidential election. According to a recent CNN poll, Obama finds himself in a tie with GOP Presidential primary hopefuls Mitt Romney and Ron Paul. However, some wonder whether CNN is manipulating the polls again for for “Mittens”.
According to the survey, if the November election were held today and Romney were the Republican presidential nominee, 48% say they’d vote for the former Massachusetts governor, with 47% supporting the president. Romney’s one point margin is well within the poll’s sampling error.
The poll also indicates Paul statistically tied with Obama, with the president at 48% and the longtime congressman at 46%.

Blue Collar Democrats Abandoning Barack Obama … Half Say They Do Not Want Him as Party Nominee in 2012
According to a recent CNN poll, President Barack Obama continues to be underwater and has sunk even farther as 44% of Americans state they approve of the job the President’s doing in the White House, while 54% say they disapprove. However, it gets worse and appears Obama’s class warfare rhetoric is failing. Obama need not worry about Republicans, he needs to worry about his own house. Barack Obama is losing the Blue collar Democrats. With a continues failing economy and Obama proving “ZERO” leadership as President or any policies to put the people back to work, Obama is pretty much losing all voting demographics.
“The biggest change comes among white Democrats with no college education, a group typically considered the core of the party’s blue-collar constituency,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. “Half of all white Democrats with no college education say they don’t want President Obama heading their party’s ticket next year.”
Then-Sen. Obama’s appeal to blue collar whites was limited in the 2008 cycle. In the Democratic primaries they tended to back his main rival, then-Sen. Hillary Clinton. And in the general election they went for the Sen. John McCain, the GOP presidential nominee, by 18 points, according to CNN exit polls.
Full poll results can be seen HERE.
The following are some key aspects of this poll that will be damning to Barack Obama. The poll also shows that Obama’s signature piece of legislation, Obamacare, is opposed by 56%, while only garnering 38% approval. Also, a meager 38% of Independents approve of Obama’s handling of his job as President, while a whopping 57% disapprove. This a a greater percentage of disapproval that the poll in general. Having lost the Independent vote … Obama is toast in 2012.
Does this make Independents and blue collar Democrats racists?
Incumbent Obama Polling Troubles … Get Ready for the Race Card, CNN Poll White Voters Disapprove of Obama 61%–36%, Non-Whites Approve 67%–32%
President Barack Obama continues to struggle in the polls, especially when compared against recent incumbents. According to the most recent CNN poll, Obama has more troubling data ahead of the 2012 elections. Some of the most damning data is Obama’s polling with Independents, where by a 54%-42% margin, indies disapprove of how the president’s handling his duties.
In comparison to recent incumbents running for re-election, Obama’s 46% approval ranks above only Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford – who both lost their re-election bids – in November of the year before an election. Most incumbents who were re-elected had an approval rating above 50% a year before the election. But George W. Bush, at 50%, and Richard Nixon, at 49%, also won re-election, and Bush’s father George H.W. Bush had a 56% approval rating yet lost to Bill Clinton the following year.
Overall, Obama’s numbers still troubling when he polls better for foreign policy as compared to handling the economy.
A CNN/ORC International Poll released Tuesday indicates that 52% of all Americans approve of how the president is handling the situation in Iraq, an indication that Americans tend to favor Obama’s decision to withdraw all U.S. troops from that country by year’s end. Forty-eight percent of those questioned approve of how he is handling the war in Afghanistan. By contrast, only 35% have a positive view of his economic track record, and just 38% approve of how he is handling health care policy.
Women are divided on how Obama’s performing, but men disapprove by a 55%–43% margin. White Americans give Obama a thumbs down by a 61%–36% margin, with non-white Americans give the president a thumbs up by a more than 2–1 margin.
As Weasel Zippers opines, when you have a failure of a President, get ready for the race card to be used early and often in the reelection efforts of Barack Obama.
CNN, YOU LIE!!!
Check out the poll below and the CNN typical liberal MSM embellishment … More Americans supporting Occupy Wall Street. 36% say they agree and 19% say they disagree, um … that’s only 54%. What happened to the other 46% of respondents? Oh, they were not sure. I wonder if the MSM actually reported the rapes, sexual assault, attacks on police and vandalism caused by the OWS protesters who supportive Americans would be. You mean CNN is going to spin that 36% id good? I guess they are preparing for when Obama’s job approval numbers fall to that level.
As Americans learn more about Occupy Wall Street, they are becoming more supportive of the movement’s positions, according to a new poll from ORC International.
The survey, taken Oct. 28-31, shows more adult Americans saying they have heard of Occupy Wall Street than when the question was asked in early October. Sixty-four percent of respondents now say they’ve heard of the movement, compared to only 51% in the earlier poll.
The new poll also shows more Americans supporting the movement. Thirty-six percent say they agree with the overall positions of Occupy Wall Street, while 19% say they disagree.
That reflects an increase in support since early October, when 27% of those polled said they agreed with Occupy Wall Street’s position.
Sorry, but the longer this goes on, the more support from anyone with a clue will never support. BTW, 36% is hardly a mandate of approval from We the People.
Good News For GOP Presidential Hopeful Mitt Romney … Most Americans Do not Have Problem with Mormon Candidate
Republican Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, the former Governor of Massachusetts, received some good polling data. According to a CNN poll, Americans overwhelmingly say a presidential candidate being Mormon wouldn’t affect their vote. 80% of those polled stated that a candidate being a Mormon would not affect their vote.
The survey, which was taken after a controversial pastor said Mormonism was a “cult” and that GOP voters should support a “competent Christian,” also shows a majority of Americans believe Mormons are Christians.
Eighty percent of respondents in the survey said a candidate’s Mormonism wouldn’t make a difference in their selection process, while 17% said they would be less likely to vote for a candidate who was Mormon. Three percent said they would be more likely to select a Mormon candidate.
Most people are looking for a good and moral individual to be President. However, when those that would question a Mormon as President, would they rather prefer an individual indoctrinated in the church of Reverend Wright and his Black Liberation Theology Doctrine … God Damn America?
Think about it when voting in 2012.
