#Election2012 #US #polls

Polls are tight as we head into the first week of October in the race for the US Presidency. This is an exciting, historical time! Democratic National Committee spokesman Brad Woodhouse tells Fox News he thinks Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will win the first debate.

 According to Associated Press, Romney has been spending quite a bit of time prepping for the upcoming 3-debate series. Will that help? Perhaps Michael Savage knows the answer?

Young political observer Alex Gordon blogs [Romney and Bad Polls vs. Good Messaging] ::: "Even if the polls were skewed, their recent shifts would still be a dire warning for the Republican Party. A downturn to the extent that recent polls have shown is never a good sign, regardless of the candidate’s lead. The concern over skewed polls represents a refusal to examine the indication of recent polling data, and that it indicates a dire state of the race for Mitt Romney – if not in his current standing, but in his trajectory.

The issue with the “skewed poll” argument, and the reason that some Republicans such as Governor Chris Christie are coming out against it, is that it results in ignoring the legitimate problems that have induced polling woes for the Romney campaign. While it might make sense to hold optimism before all on the day before election day, the Romney campaign still has time to correct its errors and come out on top.

The major problem that can be fixed is the lack of a message. The reason that Romney gaffes have gotten so much attention is that the Romney campaign isn’t putting out a concrete idea for the public to focus on."

And then there's this from a Twitter "parody account" - Partisan Policy Polls ::: “Ohio voters favored Gov Romney 52-47. A follow-up question of ‘Why are you so racist?’ resulted in a switch to 50-45 lead for Pres Obama.” Comedy mirors life, folks! Keep that in mind!

NJ Gov. Christie is forecasting “This whole race is going to be turned upside down come Thursday morning.”
He believes Mitt Romney will effectively via debate turn the tables on President Barack Obama.

Looks like there will be no Presidential endorsement from Ross Perot : Politico reports the billionaire told USA Today that despite the fact that “members of his family have donated almost exclusively to Republicans in recent years” he won't be backing any candidate this year.

  1. Hi Dave,

    Like the article. I'll be watching the debates. though I don't think Romney can do much to overcome what has already been his beginning.

    I think it is best to listen to what the candidates say at the beginning of their campaign as this is where their truth is.

    Romney has made one blunder after another without any real message of what he will do until recently. Plus, the things he will do, like give vouchers to seniors, is crazy.

    Just my opinion. I'll be checking back. Sally
