Nope. I would say what I say if Romney was leading by ten points. Polls mean nothing, especially this early in the game.
I don't know how these Ohio polls were conducted. I could not even get the link to work. However, I do know that this election, over sampling is a very common way they have been taking these polls:
I’ve got good news and bad news for Hot Air readers today. First, the good news: After a few years of embarrassing sample skew problems in the CBS/NYT polls, the two media outlets have partnered with Quinnipiac, at least for this week’s look at three swing states — Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. The bad news? I’m not sure the new partnership improved things.
First, let’s look at CBS’ lead on the new poll numbers, which they tout as good news for Barack Obama and bad news for Mitt Romney:
President Obama leads Mitt Romney among likely voters in Ohio and Florida – and has a double-digit lead in Pennsylvania – according to a Quinnipiac University/CBS News/New York Times poll released this morning.
The poll, conducted from July 24-30, shows Mr. Obama leading his presumptive Republican challenger 53 percent to 42 percent in Pennsylvania. The 11-point lead results largely from independents, who favor the president by 22 points, and women, who favor the president by 24 points.
Mr. Obama holds a six-point lead in Ohio, 50 percent to 44 percent, a state where he holds a campaign event later today. His lead here is also due in large part to women, who back him by a 21-point margin. Romney leads by ten points among Ohio men, and seven points among Ohio whites.
In Florida, Mr. Obama also holds a six point lead, 51 percent to 45 percent. He holds a small lead among both men and women and a 19-point lead among Hispanics, while Romney leads by double-digits among whites and voters age 65 and above.
Now let’s take a look at the partisan breakdown (D/R/I) in the sample data for each state, and compare them to 2008 and 2010 exit polling:
Florida: CBS/NYT 36/27/32, 2008 37/34/29, 2010 36/36/29
Ohio: CBS/NYT 35/27/32, 2008 39/31/30, 2010 36/37/28
Pennsylvania: CBS/NYT 38/32/26, 2008 44/37/18, 2010 40/37/23
The CBS/NYT model has Democrats a +9 in Florida when in 2008 they were only a +3 and an even split in the 2010 midterms. Ohio’s sample has exactly the split in 2008 (D+8), which is nine points better than Democrats did in the midterms. Pennsylvania’s numbers (D+6) come closest to a rational predictive model, somewhere between 2008&#8242;s D+7 and 2010&#8242;s D+3, but still looking mighty optimistic for Democratic turnout.

You get about to weeks past the conventions they begin to count. There can be changes, but it tells you who has to change.

Right now there is a lot of pressure on Romney to hit it of the park on 3 October. If not, he has a real problem.

I don't care for the way they call all the states, but they are consistant. Scroll over the state and it will give you some info. Go to the bottom, and they will give you recent polls and allow you to go to older articles.

Ohio says 5 polls, so it is an average and if you go to the bottom for 18 Sep you might see them.

I think what we really need is a federal consumption tax. That way, everybody pays, rich, poor, anything in between. And if we want a war, a socialized medical care system, trains to nowhere, we simply increase the consumption tax.
Maybe more people will pay attention on who they elect using this system.
Yes, adding 30% to the cost of a new house will do wonders for getting the economy going.

If we'd done that back when, the military would still be all white guys.

Sorry but that's not what our nation is about. DADT had no place in a free society military and the experience of the past year has proven that. According to records we lost exactly TWO soldiers because of the removal of DADT. Not a bit of an issue.

The top 10% of wage earners in this country already pay 71% of all federal income taxes. How much more can they pay? How can we turn to them every time our politicians spend too much on all these goodies?

If the tax rate were 0% for everybody, our federal government would collect 0 dollars in taxes. If our tax rate were 100% for everybody, then our federal government would still collect 0 dollars because who would be stupid enough to work?

Every action causes a reaction. Some negative, some positive. People who fool themselves actually believe that when you take more of a persons money, they don't react at all. They just sit there holding 100 dollar bills waiting for you to snatch them. That's not realty. The reality is that when you make plans to take more of somebody's money, they make plans to hide it from you.

I want you to keep him alive. But I would also understand that my kid joined the military to fight for his country. That's why he joined. Just as if my kid became a cop. When you become a cop, you enforce laws--not just the laws you approve of. Law making is the job of the politicians. and when you join the police force, you agree to enforce all those laws whether you like them or not.

On Bill O last night, they were playing clips of Romney and Obama on their interviews with (I believe) 60 minutes. Romney was evasive on the question of deductions, so we really don't know.

What I do know is that if he becomes President, he will have to push those deduction cuts through a likely Republican Congress and likely Democrat Senate. It won't be Obama Care either. It will be months of representatives fighting for their constituents votes.

Many of the top 10% pay lower tax rates than the middle class. It has been all over the news that Romney paid a lower tax rate than the average middle class tax payer.

Romney does not get a paycheck like other people. His tax rate reflects his capital gains earnings. Middle-class people who make capital gains income pays the same exact tax. Your argument is the same argument made by Warren Buffet. You can't compare apples to oranges.

Maybe he doesn't, I don't know. But if not, he is still paying higher utility costs because of energy assistance programs. He's still paying a higher cell phone bill because of free cell phones handed out to the lazy.......... er, I mean poor.

All working people pay for the lazy no matte what income you make.

You can lower middle class tax rates by getting more folks working and paying taxs.

Romney plans a 'jobs tour' right off to secure new trade agreement. In the time China has negotiated 18 new ones and have 15 in process, Obama has done zero.
That pumps up manufacturing creating decent paying factory jobs and the jobs spiral upwards from there. The earned money going back into the economy, more taxes paid in, although at a lower rate and less $ going out for government assistance.

Energy independence, which Romney wants to achieve in 8 years will create those 10 million well paying jobs. It will just spiral up from there.

Cheaper energy will reduce family and business costs and the lower costs will reflect back on every product you buy. And we will feel FREE creating our own energy. We can even sell some abroad.

There will not be any schedule A tax deductions pulled to my thinking. i.e., medical expenses, mortgage interest, charitable gifts, property & state income taxes and misc work expenses are all safe. Rather I see them deleting some of the tax deductions for the wealthy, that only the wealthy enjoy because they can afford to participate in those activities. The wealthy will pay a little more, but they won't notice or mind or have a lifestyle change.

Rolling back government regulations will help businesses. What started as a good thing has gotten out of hand, crippling some businesses and closing down others.

Education will improve because the $ we are spending on assistance programs can be reallocated.

Mainly, it will be more middle class tax payers, paying a lower rate, that will increase the coffers and get them off the dole. People don't want to live on unemployment and food stamps.

Some always will.

Obamacare, with it's hidden taxes and 3000 pages and not one doctor consulted in the writing, has to be repealed and revamped. We can do better.

Just some thoughts. But Romney made all of these remarks in his acceptance speech in August.
