The NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist College survey of likely voters put Obama ahead of Romney in Ohio, 51 percent to 45 percent, and in Florida, 49 percent to 47 percent.
In Ohio, 52 percent of likely voters viewed Obama favorably and 45 percent viewed him unfavorably. Forty-eight percent viewed Romney unfavorably and 45 percent favorably. By 48 percent to 46 percent, they said Obama would do a better job than Romney in handling the economy.
The Battle for the Presidency... of Ohio?
Likely voters in Florida viewed Obama positively, 50 percent to 46 percent, as well as Romney, 48 percent to 45 percent. Forty-eight percent said Romney would do a better job handling the economy, compared with 46 percent that said Obama.
Three other surveys out this week also had Obama ahead in Ohio, a state without which a Republican has never won the presidency.
A CNN/ORC International survey out yesterday put Obama ahead of Romney, 50 percent to 47 percent, among likely voters in Ohio. Both candidates campaigned there yesterday.
Two surveys released Oct. 31 also found Obama ahead in the state. A CBS News/New York Times/Quinnipiac University poll had Obama leading, 50 percent to 45 percent, and the Ohio Poll by University of Cincinnatis Institute for Policy Research gave Obama a two-point lead, 48 percent to 46 percent.
Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion in Poughkeepsie, New York, said Obamas numbers in Ohio match his support there from four years ago, when he carried the state.
An Obama victory in Ohio this time will make it easier for him and harder for Romney to get the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency, Miringoff said.

What would eclipse my own flash of intelligence is you admitting your man is little better than his adversary. That all of the mud-slinging is a facade and that you ultimately act in the interest of the same masters, both bought and paid for by the interest you claim to be against.
He's maintained policies enacted by Bush that
invade freedom and privacy in the form of the
Patriot Act. Maintained the Bush tax cuts that give the wealthiest Americans a death grip hold on the middle class.
I have no faith in either candidate. And I don't recall seeing such a divisive election period wrought with so much vitriol and hostility; Senate and House seats have taken a backseat to what's amounted to a Cold Civil War between the presidential candidates. For a while I gave the left credit as being the more civil side, but I don't even subscribe to that charade anymore.
I hope 2016 gives a viable contender I can proudly vote for. This is easily the worst field in 30+ years. And everyone buying completely into the promises of one or another without question should feel shame.

I know, I know
But you think your guy is better too.
So, everything applies to you too if you have a dog in this hunt.
Hey Libertarians aren't always what they seem either.
I will come back later with some Libertaarain follies for you to contemplate but I don't want to disillusion you so that you don't vote at all.
I'm very comfortable being a Democrat though So yes I think my guy is better but don't think in on here about trying to change peoples minds.
That would not be living in this universe
The Dems on here I like and support them. I don't like some of the republicans that post on here and I enjoy responding to their nonsense when appropriate (which just happens to be all the time)
But, believe it or not I do not respond to them because their.republicans. I have respect for some republicans and would not direct such scathing criticism to some...well there's a few.
But I just don't like some these individuals who are sucking up pablum spewed by Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck.
So I respond to some of that garbage.
By the way ...like I said before and whether you want to accept it or not there are disticnt difference in outcome depending on who you vote for this time.
None are perfecr and those Libertarians aren't showing all their cards yet either...once they gain power they will thouugh.
But don't be discouraged that's how it works in our system. I'm not however condoning corruption either.
Any types of actual law breaking should be punished to the full extent on either side.
Unfortunately though the republican just stack the Supreme Court with justices who are taking away liberties.
This should really piss you off more than anything be a so called "Libertarian"
Now, if you're a Tea Bagger I understand the dilemna ahead...your republican party just couldn't produce a good enough candidate.
He's corrupt in the sense that he wants to limit more freedoms and if he were to get into office. Roe vs Wade, not stopping the legislation that says money is free speech, and a host of others that he's not telling us about as well.
So....vote for whemever suits your fancy but I enjoy seeing the splintering effect that is evident here.
The splintering is begining and more will follow you into the desert but good luck anyway.
Sorry for any typos ..its 3:40 am and my eyes are going

Has there ever been a more dishonest presidential candidate than Mitt Romney? Has anyone pandered, changed positions, or flat out made things up the way this guy has? Most politicians lie to get votes, but the Team Romney and his supporters have eagerly embraced and repeated the bald lies. His latest ads claiming Chrysler is outsourcing Jeep production to China has been flat out debunked and yet on this forum that lie is repeated as if truth.
I am profoundly astounded by the ease in which Romney spouts his lies, it's just straight fabrication, not the the normal half truths put out by Politicians.
#41163 Nov 4, 2012
LOL! Denying the reality of polling results is what's delusional.
But that's pretty much your only refuge now, isn't it Roger? Now that Barack Obama's re-election is a foregone conclusion. LOL!
#41164 Nov 4, 2012
Dan the Man
And like the majority of voters this year, I will again.
BTW - you really should listen to the speech.
He did not say what you think he said.

In a new TV ad, President Obama makes an inflated claim to have added 5.2 million new jobs.
The total added during his time in office is actually about 325,000.
#41167 Nov 4, 2012
From the 23 million Americans unemployed or underemployed and the 46 million people now on food stamps, to the decline in workforce participation and the explosion of people on disability, many now realize the fallacy of his reputedly deft decision-making skills.
His claim in the last debate of having created 5 million jobs rings hollow to an electorate seeing fewer people working today than when Obama took office.
Yet, the story he insists on telling America is that he saved us.
#41168 Nov 4, 2012
The $831,000,000,000 economic "stimulus" that President Obama spearheaded and signed into law requires his administration to release quarterly reports on its effects.
But "the most transparent administration in the history of our country" is now four reports behind schedule and has so far not released any reports whatsoever in 2012.
Its most recent quarterly report is for the quarter than ended on June 30, 2011.

"Denying the reality of polling results is what's delusional."
Denying the reality of guessing is what's delusional.
Denying the reality of estimates is what's delusional.
Denying the reality of divination is what's delusional.
Denying the reality of flipping a coin is what's delusional.
Denying the reality of odds is what's delusional.
At the horse or dog track it's called 'handicapping', danny BOY.
Here, BOY, the Las Vegas line on today's NFL games might interest you:
Do you realize, BOY, that those are only the 'odds' of a team winning and that by 11pm tonight many of them will have been proven wrong?
You're easily confused, BOY, in believing that polling results are election results.
You celebrate early, BOY, which is good idea if you suspect you can't later.
You know, BOY, you could rake in a mint of money if Monday you took every bit of money out of savings, mortgage the house, sell the car and bet that money on Obama winning the presidential election.
It's a SURE THING, danny BOY! In your own words Obama's reelection is "INEVITABLE" and "A FOREGONE CONCLUSION"!
With that kind of certainty you'd be a fool NOT to, BOY! You only need to put your money where your mouth is. Bookies in England are taking bets.
Oh? What's that BOY? You're not THAT certain? I thought not. "inevitible and foregone conclusion" have different meanings in dannyBOYworld, translated meaning "I hope I hope I hope".
You talk a lot BEFORE the game, don't you BOY, and cross your fingers a lot DURING the game.
You're a common mouth-running chest-thumper, BOY.

'Vote for Revenge'
#41171 Nov 4, 2012
Liberals thrive on widespread fear, pessimism and uncertainty.
But the socialist platform doesn't stand up to the simplest factual tests.
To convince gullible people to vote for liberal candidates and support their agenda, liberals spread fear, distrust and jealousy wherever they can.
Things like truth and facts and honest debate don't matter to liberals as much as winning elections and retaining power.
When facts are shown that cannot be disputed you do not reply, disappear, switch topics or you resort to name-calling.
Dan the Man Carlisle, PA, you are a cowardly piece of COMMUNIST shit!
Just like your COMMUNIST black messiah!

Yoo Hoo Teabag Dippers--
You can't have your cake and it eat too.
1) Short to medium term government spending is the only tool that sane economists have to pull the country out of a depression.
2) The US Debt is not out of control or in crisis. There is a strong demand for US debt in fact, the inflation-adjusted yield on 20-year bonds has been negative. Investors, in other words, are so pessimistic about growth prospects and so frightened of losing their principal that theyre willing to pay the American government a small fee for the privilege of safeguarding their money.
Paying back borrowings at negative rates is not going to cripple our economy or burden our future.
The debt isn't a crisis that should cause us to run around dressed as colonials with teabags hanging from our hats.
You need to demand that your "do-nothing" House of Representatives gets to work on a short-medium term plan to eliminate unemployment, build infrastructure, and enhance research and education. These investments benefit every American more so than the defense welfare we give Halliburton, KBR, Lockheed Martin, and the other wasteful defense providers.
You also need to demand that these "do nothings" in the House income raise taxes on the KOCHS, WALTONs, ADELSONS, and even the ROMNEYS. Its immoral that Romney pays 14% and I pay closer to 28%. Think about it if you rely in income rather than interest for your support. They need to pay their fair share just like middle class taxpayers.
Reform and strengthen social security and medicare by raising additional funding by taxing all income. Its a program that we all benefit from and its important for middle class stability.
Remember YOUR TEABAGGIN "do nothing" HOUSE has voted on 67 bills during 2011 that impact women's HOOHAHs but not one bill that helps the country restore its strong middle class.
Government involves compromise but your silly, colonial clothing wearing idiots seem to think its a MMA cage match where everyone ends up bloodied and ill.
You've surrendered your thoughts and intellect to your overlords--Kochs, Adelsons, Singers, and Waltons. THey funded your tea bag wearing movement and they've got you leash trained like a family dog.
Remember, the only thing that trickles down is water and you won't wake up a billionaire no matter how much you identify with them.
Pousser les sachets de thé jusqu'à votre âne et un certain sens dans votre tête!
Peace and Blessings--

Please deliver us from the tyranny and oppression of the Communist democrat public sector unions.
#41174 Nov 4, 2012
Hey, danny BOY, did you see the scary headline on the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review today, two days before the election?
"PA STILL IN PLAY 47% Obama 47% Romney"
It must be right. It's based on a poll!
#41175 Nov 4, 2012
Both candidates are paid for by the same megabank multinational corporate interest.
The bankers/elite/globalist will win, the American people LOSE, this is not an 'election', it is just picking which puppet to put on display for four more years.
Dennis Kucinich spoke for the American people, and the banker oligarchy threw millions into backing a primary challenger, they cannot have men like him on C-SPAN speaking his mind. We still have Mike Lee, and a few others, but Kucinich and Ron Paul will be missed.
Ron Paul has been presenting sound money, non-interventionist foreign policy and civil liberties for over 20 years. The banker media has been able to convince the sleeping brainwashed zombie public that he must be a 'kook' or 'crazy', and the left/right paradigm entrenched mind-controlled weasel population has suck it up.
People are waking up, Ross Perot woke me up when I was in my teens and they will no longer allow third party candidates into the debates because 95% of what he said was true. The 'giant sucking sound'- can anyone dispute this? It was a BIG JOKE among the controlled media when he said it, but the joke is on the American public, because it has and still is happening.
So all of you left/right copy/paste experts here, please wake up and at least display a little critical think occasionally, instead of just parroting back what your corporate media masters tell you.
#41176 Nov 4, 2012
Isn't the The Trib owned by Scaife or some Tea Bagger like that?
Or is it a Fox News subsidiary?
Note sure but this is more likely the case, probably making it look closer than it actually is?
And of course the obvious ...
Is this the same 47% that Romney doesn't give a shit about?
Or did he retract that statement too?
#41177 Nov 4, 2012
Yours is an fringe, untrusted opinion in describing a 16 TRILLION dollar debt as one NOT in crisis. That kind of statement discredits all you have to say.
It's more an indication of YOUR stupidity if you're paying 28%! That's on YOU, not Romney.
So you're saying that Harry Reid is 'Teabagger' based on his recent statement "Democrats will not work with Romney if he wins"?
You hoo. Apparently you're frustrated that you can't 'push your tea bags up your ass because it IS your head'. We know why you call yourself 'Mr. Swish' now don't we.
#41178 Nov 4, 2012
You being "Note sure" doesn't slow you from talking as if you are.
Huh? "Is this the same 47% that Romney doesn't give a shit about?" doesn't make much sense, now does it.
You LOVE appearing stupid in public.
