I think the polls are unreliable. We are seeing skewed polling. For example, one pollster sampled 9% more democrats following 2008 turnout...yet significantly less democrats are turning out now.

I think a more telling sign is the turnout in early voting. Democratic turnout is significantly lower than 2008. Republican turnout is significantly higher than 2008. Republicans are stronger in election-day voting than democrats.

the polls always seem to be unreliable unless they are providing the desired results...

What do you think the generic ballot in OH, PA, CO and IA should be?

A laughing smiley??? Does that mean that you believe the sampling is consistent with the expected voter turnout? Does that mean that you're disputing the turnout facts? Or are you just stirring the pot?

Early voting in OH. Rove noted on FoxNews this morning...
GOP has increased their early turnout by more than 100k from 2008. Dems down 150k. That is 250k net (Obama won in 2008 by 260k). Historically, GOP has a much stronger turnout on election day.

I'm gonna clue you in on something.
You think Romney had a religous mission in France? He has a religous mission to save America, I am not kidding.
If you know a Mormon ask them if they have been told that the Mormon Preisthood would save America before it is destroyed.
Honestly this stuff worries me, but I do trust Romney to do the right thing.
As a former Mormon Iam gonna go home and restock my food supply for 2 + years and sit back and watch the Drama.

How long did you contemplate on that before posting? I'm betting somewhere north of 90 minutes or so.

Glad you liked it.

Hey, I voted for Romney on my ballot too, but that doesn't mean I think he will win. He's an NRA endorsed politician, so I voted for gun rights.

What do you think the GB should be on a national poll? Would you consider a D +11 to be an accurate picture of the nation politically?

Anybody confident in polling needs a little history review of the 1980 Presidential election. The stage is set in a similar fashion - same crappy economy, same clueless Democrat.

The difference is, Carter had a much wider lead in the polls than Obama does now

The Okie Corral

Death to the republican party, death to the moral police.

One party of the two headed monster is severely wounded, now to destroy the other!

Told you so. The margin of the asks kicking was bigger than the number of libertarians. Blame is squarely on GOP.

They certainly are. We libertarians have been bashed for months by the fools who though Romney was somehow "conservative".

Are any of you listening now?

The morality police republicans, sorry, you no longer are relevant.
