    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.

    Yeah, those polls are full of crap. So are the Gallup and Rasmussen.

    Actually, I think the final football poll comes out on December 3rd.

    Yet Fox News has Obama up by 9 points....when did they become liberial? So Fox News is driving the liberial narrative?....cool.....

    Lets be honest Romney is in trouble....and has less than 90 days to turn it around....and right now it ain't looking so good....no matter how you try to spin it....

    You really know he is in trouble if Fox News has Obama up by 9.....

    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.

    They don't just call landlines anymore. Welcome to the 21st century.
