View Full Version : Momentum: Romney Increases Lead In National, Swing State Poll

The CorruptMedia is desperate to keep Obama voters motivated to turn out through a phony Narrative that says Romney's momentum has stalled. Two of the most reliable pollsters in the country would beg to differ. Mirroring Gallup's results yesterday, today, in two different tracking polls, Rasmussen shows Romney pulling away.

Yesterday's seven-day Gallup tracker showed Romney increasing his lead overnight by two points -- 47-50% to 46-51%. The last time Romney was below fifty in this poll was almost two weeks ago, on October 14. Since the move to likely voters, Obama has yet to reach 50% in Gallup and hasn't even been able to reach 48% since October 1.

We'll see what today's Gallup results are at 1pm Eastern.

Today's three-day Rasmussen tracker shows Romney leading 50-46%. That's a one-point increase over yesterday's 50-47%. Romney also increased his lead by two points in the Rasmussen tracking poll of the eleven combined swing states. Today the former Massachusetts governor sits at 51%, while the former community organizer languished at 45%. Those six-points represent Romney's best lead yet. Quite incredibly, Obama led this poll by three points ten days ago. That's a nine-point swing towards Romney.

Obviously, all eyes are now on Ohio -- THE Firewall. Like many, I'm troubled by the fact that the current Real Clear Politics poll of Ohio polls doesn't show a single one with Romney in the lead -- though he is tied in three. I couldn’t agree more that there are all kinds of superb, logical, and persuasive arguments as to why these polls are wrong. But like Ace of Spades, I'd feel better if I had a poll instead of only argument. The good news in this regard, though, is that some very smart people are making this argument.

Michael Barone is no shill. He might be right-of-center politically, but he's nobody's flack. What he is, however, is one of the top three smartest numbers men in the country, and he's predicting a Romney win.

Kinda goes along with this, WZ just shared this.

The Register endorsement: Mitt Romney offers a fresh economic vision (http://www.desmoinesregister.com/article/20121027/OPINION03/121026026/The-Register-endorsement-Mitt-Romney-offers-a-fresh-economic-vision?Frontpage) — Des Moines Register

Ten months ago this newspaper endorsed former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for the Republican nomination for president. An overarching consideration was which of the party’s candidates could we see occupying the White House, and there was no question that Romney was qualified for the job.
Now, in the closing days of the general election campaign, the question is which of the two contenders deserves to be the next president of the United States.

Both President Barack Obama and Governor Romney are superbly qualified. Both are graduates of the Harvard University Law School who have distinguished themselves in government, in public service and in private life. Both are devoted husbands and fathers.

American voters are deeply divided about this race. The Register’s editorial board, as it should, had a vigorous debate over this endorsement. Our discussion repeatedly circled back to the nation’s single most important challenge: pulling the economy out of the doldrums, getting more Americans back in the workforce in meaningful jobs with promising futures, and getting the federal government on a track to balance the budget in a bipartisan manner that the country demands.

Which candidate could forge the compromises in Congress to achieve these goals? When the question is framed in those terms, Mitt Romney emerges the stronger candidate.

The former governor and business executive has a strong record of achievement in both the private and the public sectors. He was an accomplished governor in a liberal state. He founded and ran a successful business that turned around failing companies. He successfully managed the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

Romney has made rebuilding the economy his No. 1 campaign priority — and rightly so.

This paper hasn't endorsed a Rep. since 1972! Its not much of a step up from the NYTs in their liberal slant. And is the main paper here in Iowa. This is huge if Romney secures the DMR. especially with Iowa being a major swing state.

This is almost more remarkable than if the St Louis Post-Dispatch endorsed Romney. I'll know the world is almost coming to an end if that rag would endorse a Republican.

Maybe there's hope.

There is hope we are winning this thing at this point, it all depends on whether we can keep the illegal voting under control and that remains to be seen, they have had 3 years to tamper with the voting system while they were under control.
