Polls that aren't democrat skewed!!! http://www.examiner.com/article/mitt-romney-l...
In polls that AREN'T skewed ... Romney is SCREWED!
Your cited article:
1) Praises skewed Rasmussen again! ROFL! Rasmussen has been proved to be around 4% biased toward Republicans.
2) States that "If Mitt Romney wins at least four of the [five] states mentioned below, it will be impossible for Barack Obama to reach the needed 270 electoral votes, therefore Romney's election is quite likely."
The article lists Ohio, Florida, Virginia, Colorado, and Michigan.
That "if Mitt wins at least four" statement is probably true, but I am amused that EVEN THE ARTICLE "weasel-words" that statement by putting in the phrase "is quite likely." NO "absolutely certain" or "is quite certain"! ROFL!
Romney's problem is that President Obama's probabilities of winning:
Ohio - 70.9%; Florida - 54.8%; Virginia - 64.7%; Colorado - 61.1%; Michigan - 97.4%
The article says some really silly stuff:
1. "Those five states are worth 85 electoral votes and could help either candidate on their road to the White House." REALLY?... ROFL!
2. Regarding Ohio, "A Rasmussen Reports survey of 500 likely voters released a few days ago for Ohio shows it nearly tied at Obama 47 percent, Romney 46 percent. A poll by Gravis Marketing earlier this month showed the race at Obama 47 percent, Romney 43 percent. Obama can't win this state with 47 percent, nor will be get many of the undecided voters in Ohio, who will break for Romney and allow him to carry this state as George W. Bush did in 2004 running against John Kerry." Even Rasmussen has Obama at 47%. I ask you ... if Obama gets 47%, and Romney gets 46%, HOW IS OBAMA GOING TO LOSE? With Romney "dissing" workers, how is Romney going to get those "undecided voters," whom Romney just accused of being lazy and moochers?
3. Regarding Florida: "Mitt Romney has lead in most of the credible polls in Florida for most of this year. A Gravis Marketing poll released today shows Romney leading 48 percent to 47 percent. The latest Rasmussen Reports poll of Florida released a few days ago shows Obama leading 48 percent to 46 percent for Romney. Wit most of the undecided voters going for Romney, there are few odds of this state not going for Romney in November." What the? ALL CREDIBLE POLLS ... and Rasmussen ... shows Obama ahead! Huh? "With most of the undecided voters going for Romney"? ARE YOU CRAZY?
4. Regarding Virginia: The article says Obama is ahead, but with the "undecided voters" miraculously voting for Romney that will "tip the state" for Romney! MORE SHEER MADNESS!
5. Regarding Colorado: Rasmussen and another poll show Obama ahead. But the article notes that Colorado "has welcomed Romney has [sic] a visitor several times and he will no doubt visit there several more times before election day, leading to winning the state." What the? Romney visits Colorado and automatically wins? Big DUH!
6. Regarding Michigan: "This state is a bit of a challenge for Mitt Romney, but given that it's somewhat of a home state for him that is suffering through the worst of the economic downturn more than most states, it should be one he can win." Yeah, Michigan is "somewhat of a home state" for Romney. The article cites two polls showing Obama ahead, but the economic conditions might help Romney if he can play his cards right! TOTALLY CLUELESS!
This is perhaps the most idiotically illogical piece of propaganda tripe that I have ever read! Has the writer no shame?
(NOTE THAT: President Obama can lose Ohio, Florida, and Virginia and STILL win the election, with 272 electoral votes, according to my projections based upon online state electoral vote probabilities.)
