Romney's Momentum Seems to Have Stopped

Nate Silver:
"Mr. Romney clearly gained ground in the polls in the week or two after the Denver debate, putting himself in a much stronger overall position in the race. However, it seems that he is no longer doing so..."

"Since the Denver debate, Mr. Obama has held the lead in 16 Ohio polls against 6 for Mr. Romney. In Nevada, Mr. Obama has had the lead in 11 polls, to Mr. Romney's 1. Mr. Obama has led in all polls of Wisconsin since the Denver debate, and he has had five poll leads in Iowa to one for Mr. Romney."

"Part of the confusion (and part of the reason behind the perception that Mr. Romney is still gaining ground in the race) may be because of the headlines that accompany polls."

The best political analyst in the business today gives Romney less than a 1/3 chance of winning the Presidency...

----------

Latest FiveThirtyEight prediction:

Electoral vote:
Obama: 290.8; +3.6 since Oct 17
Romney: 247.2; -3.6 since Oct 17

Chance of winning:
Obama: 71%; +5.3 since Oct 17

But I'm sure there's a Rasmussen poll out there somewhere that proves this wrong. LMAO!

Speaking of Rasmussen...

----------

Rasmussen Has a Two-Point Republican Bias Compared to Other Pollsters

Enough presidential polling data is now available to analyze Rasmussen's data.
...
Averaging all 82 polls, Rasmussen's mean bias is -1.91 points, that is, Rasmussen appears to be making Obama look almost 2 points worse than the other pollsters.

Romney Says He’s Winning — It’s a Bluff

Despite a lack of any evident positive momentum over the last week — indeed, in the face of a slight decline from its post-Denver high — the Romney camp is suddenly bursting with talk that it will not only win but win handily.("We're going to win," said one of the former Massachusetts governor’s closest advisers. "Seriously, 305 electoral votes.")

This is a bluff. Romney is carefully attempting to project an atmosphere of momentum, in the hopes of winning positive media coverage and, thus, creating a self-fulfilling prophecy.

----------

On the right, confidence = winning!

As I said elsewhere this morning - the right prefers being misinformed to the cold, hard facts because their personal identity is formed by their political ideology. So a threat to their ideology is a personal existential threat and that will not be tolerated!

LOL! Pathetic losers.

The right has convinced themselves that Mitt's going to win a landslide.

Ideology trumps reality on the right every time.

Presidential Polls Counter Romney Surge Myth

Collectively, the new polls of the past 24 hours have done nothing to change the standings in the most crucial battleground states. Obama continued to hold leads of 2 EV_histogram_todayto 3 percentage points in Ohio, Iowa, Nevada and Wisconsin, four states that currently combine with the states where Obama leads by larger margins to create a 277 electoral vote majority, seven more than the 270 needed to win
...
Romney does slightly better in the national popular vote estimate, of course, but his 0.2 percentage point advantage there is only slightly better. The net gap is less than a percentage point. As the Cook Political Report's David Wasserman writes on Twitter, simply subtracting 4 percentage points from Obama's 2008 margins in each state produces a similar result: "He'd lose Popular vote by 0.7% but still win w/ 272 EC votes."

If the conservative voters believe in Mitt Romney's plan by reducing taxes across the board will increase the government revenue as he asserts, they are mistaken, exemplified by President George W. Bush's factual record of tax cuts that led to a three year decline in tax revenue from $2 trillion in 2000 to $1.8 trillion in 2003.

Being wealthy, Romney's politically motivated conception of progressive taxation on high earners, is punishment on success instead of ability to pay. I ask, do we want, or need the same old inept leadership we had with Bush?

President Obama was handed down such an economic disaster that was expected of him to cure in four years. Let's get serious!

The R & R dual team's execrable plan will only further the disparity between the rich and poor, advancing the termination of our present democratic system.

AP-GfK Poll: Romney Erases Obama Lead Among Women

What gender gap?

Less than two weeks out from Election Day, Republican Mitt Romney has erased President Barack Obama's 16-point advantage among women, a new Associated Press-GfK poll shows. And the president, in turn, has largely eliminated Romney's edge among men.

Those churning gender dynamics leave the presidential race still a virtual dead heat, with Romney favored by 47 percent of likely voters and Obama by 45 percent, a result within the poll's margin of sampling error, the survey shows.

Colin Powell Endorses Obama For President:
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell endorsed President Barack Obama for a second term Thursday.
"You know, I voted for him in 2008 and I plan to stick with him in 2012, and I'll be voting for he and Vice President Joe Biden next month," he said on CBS' "This Morning."
Asked whether it was an endorsement, he said, "Yes."
Powell praised the president's handling of the economy and ending of the Iraq War.
"I think we ought to keep on the track we are on," he said.
Powell said he had the "utmost respect" for Mitt Romney but criticized his tax plan.
He said Romney's foreign policy was a "moving target." "One day he has a certain strong view about staying in Afghanistan, but then on Monday night he agrees with the withdrawal. Same thing in Iraq. On every issue that was discussed on Monday night, Gov. Romney agreed with the president with some nuances. But this is quite a different set of foreign policy views than he had earlier in the campaign."

TAMPA, Fla.(AP)— Seeking to shore up his support among women voters, President Barack Obama on Thursday hammered Republican rival Mitt Romney anew over his backing of Richard Mourdock, the Indiana Senate candidate drawing fire for saying that pregnancies that result from rape are ‘‘something God intended.’’
‘‘Unlike some other leaders in the Republican Party, like John McCain, Mitt Romney hasn’t questioned his endorsement of Richard Mourdock or ever once stood up to the most extreme elements of his own party. Instead, he tapes ads for them,’’ Obama’s campaign says in an online video. His aides haven’t ruled out the possibility of using a similar message in TV ads in battleground states in the coming days as the president looks to break open a race national polls show is close.
While a Romney campaign aide has said he disagreed with Mourdock’s remark, the Republican presidential nominee is standing by Mourdock and hasn’t asked the Indiana state treasurer to take down a TV ad Romney filmed for him earlier this week.
Rape victims have no right to abort the child of the rapists!! Mourdock said if a woman was raped it was God's intented
Cant spin these facts, this is the GOP
stance on rape!!
NICE!

The Obama-Biden team continues to insist that Romney’s plan to cut tax rates and cap deductions would reduce federal revenue by $5 trillion over ten years. Where did that number come from?

Pretend the $5 trillion is not just another phony number made-up by politicians, but the result of solemn scholarship that only biased partisans could possibly question. The Associated Press, for example, said,“The Tax Policy Center [TPC], a Washington research group, says in a study that the tax cuts proposed by Romney would reduce federal tax revenues by about $5 trillion over 10 years. Romney's campaign cites studies by conservative academics and ... the conservative American Enterprise Institute (AEI)” Both the AEI and TPC are Washington research groups, and both are nonpartisan and nonprofit, yet the media habitually dismiss critics of the Tax Policy Center as conservative while never even hinting that the Brookings Institution and Urban Institute (who run the TPC) might be liberal. &#8232;Nonpartisan or not, the $5 trillion figure is a total fraud.
