    These polls are used to drive the liberal narrative.

    No mind that Gallup and Rasmussen tell a totally different story, no mind that the CNN poll was debunked what matters simply is get a poll out there then write stories off of them to show despair and panic.

    This story was written and then referenced these polls which are in direct contrast of two polling operations who are using models that don't skew the electorate to fit an unrealistic voting model.

    Even here people read the polls without even looking at the methodology and then cry the sky is falling. The empirical evidence (Walker turnout,The Missouri turnout, the huge ChickFil-A turnout) shows an invigorated Republican base which is getting under polled and underestimated.

    If these people really believe that Romney who polls up 5 points in Colorado and 2 points in Iowa (2 states Obama won handily) but is down 9 points nationally, they are nuts.

    I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.I wont give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and showed up for all wounded children.

    But that one is technically irrelevant. I meant the one that matters most.

    You do have to disregard the outlier polls. But there has been some movement in Obama's favor the last two weeks in the aggregate polls. Romney has pulled some good numbers though in the individual battleground states.

    Right now, the numbers show Obama with about a 2.5 to 3 point advantage and leading in about 3/4 of the battleground states. For Romney to win, something is going to have to reverse that trend. Stomping your feet and declaring that a liberal conspiracy is afoot is not going to change that.

    As for the VP pick, I still think Rubio would be a fine choice. I'd have no problem with the so-called boring picks of Pawlenty or Portman. Christie will not be the VP pick. Ryan is about a 100 to 1 shot. I think Jindal or Thune are more likely than either of them.

    The problem is people believe what they see on TV. That is why Romney is getting hurt.

    The past 2 weeks ads have run in Ohio saying Romney killed a guys wife and has not paid taxes in ten years.

    Men of Israel, consider carefully what you intend to do to these men. Some time ago Theudas appeared, claiming to be somebody, and about four hundred men rallied to him. He was killed, all his followers were dispersed, and it all came to nothing. After him, Judas the Galilean appeared in the days of the census and led a band of people in revolt. He too was killed, and all his followers were scattered. Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.” - Gamalie the Pharisee - Addressing the Sanhedrin regarding the new group called Christians

    Hardly stomping my feet, but I am also trying to balance out your sky is falling post in the CNN poll thread. Your crystal ball is often cloudy and it is again here.

    You are badly misreading the electorate and the intensity of the Republican turnout . Maybe like Ryan being a 100-1 shot, don't quit your day job , even if he doesn't pick Ryan to suggest a finalist for the vp slot is a 100-1 shot is politically naive.

    That article I linked was a story on the sky is falling regarding Romney and how things are falling apart on the same day the most accurate pollster of the decade has Romney up 4 points. Dod you think that stuff can be written if they use the Rasmussen poll ?

    Just got a text from the Romney campaign that the VP will be announced tomorrow morning. I think Romey wants someone with Executive experience so my guess is ... Gov Bob McDonell of Virginia.

    930 registered voters, including additional interviews (an oversample) of 115 randomly selected Hispanics.

    Democrat 44% Republican 35%

    That is the methodology from your Fox link. If you think that Dems are going to turnout larger in 2012 than in 2008 that is just crazy talk.
