This is from Gallup today. Notice what’s happened since the 47 percent “gaffe”.
Also, this is registered voters. Likely voters probably favors Romney.
According to David Brooks, Romney’s ‘finished’.
David Brooks is dumber than my grandmother’s dog.
Tell your grandmother to shoot that dog before it breeds.
Your grandmother should shoot that dog before it breeds.
You’re a sad human being. Far from witty.
You’re an ignorant goof that has a subhuman mental capacity.
According to David Brooks Obama is a great president as evidenced by the crease in his slacks. Thank God for “real” journalists.
Your mention of that crease just sent a Matthewsesque trickle down my leg. I suddenly feel qualified to be a journalist.
I can do 8 1/2 push-ups on “The View” so I suddenly feel qualified to be the chief nutritionist for a country of 350 millions.
At some point, Brooks will write an expose on himself that details how he is actually a lifelong committed leftist who was recruited decades ago to masquerade as a republican with the objective of undermining conservatism.
I disagree David is not dumb or a mole in the conservative intellectual movement. He’s just a prissy little weasel, intellectually dishonest snob and suck-up, out for himself, consumed by ambition, without any integrity and on the make.
He used to suck up to people like Bill Buckley and Bill Kristol. And they made him look better, more substantial for it.
Now, he sucks up to Andy Rosenthal, Gail Collins and Pinch Sulzberger. And, well, lie down with dogs get up with fleas.
Ooh, very nicely put.
Dang, Chipperoo – don’t hold back. Tell us how you really feel. ;-p
Jeez, Chipperoo – don’t hold back. Tell us how you REALLY feel. ;-p
Apologies for the double post. When the first reply didn’t show up, I thought either one of the words or the attempt at html had blocked it, so I changed it slightly and tried again.
Of course, THEN the other one showed up.
Who is David Brooks? haha. Must be someone very important. Not in my world though!
This looks good, but what about the demographic with which Romney is serious trouble, Reporters from Real News Services (does not include Fox News or any conservative source). The 47% gaffe has probably had an impact on that demographic, dropping Romney’s support from almost non-existent to non-existent.
The 47% gaffe was only a gaffe for those who are desperately looking for mud to sling. Romney has said on several occasions quite publicly that he won’t have the time or resources to campaign everyone, and that some people aren’t going to vote for him no matter what. The 47% includes elitist leftists, environmentalist loonies, and quite a few middle class people who work and pay taxes, but are blissfully ignorant of a lot of things thanks to their “Real News Services” as you put it, Max.
Well put. And that ‘gaffe’ came amidst the real news of Obama trying to convince America the Muslim riots and murdering were about a film, instead of planned and coordinated for 9/11 in the face of his failing middle eastern policy.
Not that it’s terribly significant, but I believe the Gallup poll was last updated on Friday. Rasmussen, which was updated Saturday and includes only “likely” voters, has it 46 – 46.
Gallup updates everyday at 1:00pm eastern.
While we tend to trust Rasmussen more for various reasons, any model of likely voters is more an educated guess than anything else. Its accuracy depends on how accurately it models turnout, and I’m sure both candidates are having issues with that. Obama has been obsessing on his base, which is telling, and Romney never really sealed the deal with the Republican base, against which you have to guess how many will crawl over broken glass to vote against Obama in November.
Look at this time line of intrade’s “predictions” – really the odds or probabilities of obama’s – leading up to mccain’s disaster:
and then look at intrade’s best guess for this year:
the greater-than-50% rule suggests that team o will get 332 electoral votes, and team r 206
the direct betting is that team o has over a 70 percent chance of winning
which is it underline that general polls are useless
what happens at the state level is everything
I really hope someone is keeping a list of reporters and pundits who pronounce Romney’s candidacy dead, so we can have a greatest hits list on November 8.
Start with Kristol, Lowrey, Noonan. No one should refer to the mass media as “mainstream” from here on out.
Forget “mainstream”, it is also inappropriate to call them “mass” media in this age of ever decreasing viewership and readership. We need a new moniker for this industry, but the closest I’ve heard is the “LameStream Media.” Unfortunately, while accurate, I don’t think that name will stick.
As long as the “msm” keep clinging to their leftist mindset, they will continue circling the drain with an ever decreasing radius.
MSM: Pravda reborn
That is an insult – to Pravda!
Soviet-era Pravda at least admitted it was a Party Organ. Post-Soviet Pravda is tabloidish, and afraid to take on Putin, and can be politically all over the place, but will at least run negative stories about the Marxo-Islamist Messiah.
I have preferred “Bolshevik propaganda organs”
Call them the EFFETE MEDIA The Democrats brown-nose brigade (BNB)of which Miss Chrissy is either a Brigadier or a BUTT private.,
SOM=Sold Out Media
Ministry of State Messaging …
… or as Uncle Jimbo of Blackfive.net put it, “Jackals of the Fourth Estate”.
My preference: Ministry of Propaganda and Lies.
century media (or 20thCM for short)
Re Paul’s point: The graph above shows the new updated Saturday Gallup numbers which are 47-47.
Well, I have never taken a gallop pole… and many of my friends have NEVER been a part of the gallop pole! And MOST of the people I know are voting for Romney!! So I am truly praying for a landslide VICTORY by this man of integrity!!! Bless you!!
Hahaha!! I just realized I wrote pole … not poll!! I feel so dumb and I am not dumb!!!
You go RMS! I’m with you!
Not too helpful. I’d rather see estimates by state translated into EC votes.
Lol Gallup was threatened by Axelrod and sued by the DOJ for their bad numbers for O. Right after that Romneys numbers dropped. coincidence? i think not
And the fact that after that seems to have prompted convenient changes in their polling they now can’t pretend Obama is ahead is telling.
“dropping Romney’s support from almost non-existent to non-existent.”
How about from non-existent to really really non-existent?
March, do you mean EV’s? I got fat fingers and I’m always hitting the next key over. I blame the keyboard. RCP (real clear politics) has a map of the states. They have it by both candidates and undecided. Plus you can fill out your own map.
RMS, you must have been thinking about pole dancers. IIRC, the world championship is coming up soon.
I was hoping the polls would keep showing Obama winning. Democrats are lazy, which is why so many are on some form of government support. So if theythink the 0bumbler is way ahead, they will NOT make the effort to go vote. Except, of course, the dead ones. I don’t really blame them. Being able to get up and go someplace only once every 4 years must really blow;
PBUH- Place Bomb Under Hood
NPR doesn’t shut up about this 47% crap. They made sure to move on quickly from the debacle in the Middle East.
Never Praise Republicans
National Platform for Radicals
National Palestinian Radio
Narcissist Propaganda Radio
Just wait until Israel attacks Iran and ODummer refuses to support Israel. Romney’s number will fly like an Israeli missle, and ODummer’s, like an Iranian TANK.
I don’t really see it as the polls “closing”. I see it as pollsters wanting a shred of credibility when this is all over.
The biggest shot Mitt took in the last month was Clinton’s Mediscare data dump. I have a suspicion by the time of the election that is going to be sliced, diced and completely ingrained into and accepted by the American public why Clinton/Obama is wrong and Romney/Ryan is right.
Look at the income tax release. Romney played his cards on his own schedule, not Harry Reid’s or the New York Times’
I’m beginning to think Romney is crazy like a fox. For a while now, there has been speculation that fiscal conservative and evangelicals aren’t really enthused about him and might stay home, whether over concerns over his fiscal conservative bona fides or his Mormonism. Now come three “gaffes.” One, he jumps into the Libyan narrative in a way that guarantees the media will jump ugly on him because he is beating up their boyfriends. Who do bedrock conservatives hate as much as Obama? The press. Then he has a secret video where he reveals two solid core beliefs in the conservative base: one, that dependency is killing our country’s finances and character (popular with the fiscal hawks) and two, that Palestinians want peace (and accurate view that is also popular with Israel-supporting evangelicals.)
If these are gaffes, they are brilliant. Are we certain Romney didn’t leak the videos?
“crazy like a fox” — I’ve thought that for about a week now.
Of course I meant to say that Palestinians DON’T want peace. It’s the internet. Lazy fingers and all.
Of what value are these statistics. This is not a general election. What does it matter that Obama leads in NY and CA by large margins, if it is of no value in the electoral collage?
Given that built-in advantage, a national tie in votes means that Obama is toast.
May I be the first to say, Good Riddance!
The crease David Brooks saw in Barack’s slacks was the crease of his penis. David Brooks was salivating. Brooks is a homo, no doubt!
Scott Brown doesn’t stand a chance against Coakley also. I know because the Boston Glob told me so.
Like you said these are only Gaffes to the left, they don’t realize how radical they’ve become. Hopefully the independents see it. Regardless we can overwhelm them at the polls. Ignore the press and put pressure on anyone you can on the right to hold the line, especially the right wing media, we have to muzzle some of these traitors that don’t agree with Romney’s strategy. These are some of the same idiots who probably supported Mccain. It’s the start of the 4th qtr and we don’t have time for this, we need to threaten to cut their balls off if necessary, I’m sick of the weak kneeed RINOs. Oh and even if it rains molten lava on election day you better be at the polls.
To all you liberals:……keep in mind, in 2008, the platform was all about the Obama hype of “change”…yes we can”…blah blah..blah. People were intimidated at the voting sites by Black Panthers….etc.. I guarantee you; this will not be the case this time, as the AMERICAN MAJORITY will show up and vote. Romney will win in a LANDSLIDE. Obama has no integrity, nor does he have a clue on how to lead a Country. His SOCIALIST agenda is destroying this great country. Get a clue you fools.
Gallup is now +6 Obama….Not good….
