I think Gallup had a survey of 12 battleground states last week - he was losing all of them I believe.
Ummm, isn't an election the ultimate national poll? It's also the only one that counts.

I believe you're wrong. Obama is actually leading in Florida and South Carolina ..Didn't you see Nickey Haley doing one of your numbers, trying to undermine the poll?

Polls only matter when Obama's numbers are low. At least that's how it works on CD.

STATE by STATE. Taken a look at the polling in some battlegrounds states lately.

He is in real trouble in PA, if he loses PA, he likely loses the election.

We don't determine a president by popular vote.

SOUTH CAROLINA? You actually believe obama can win SC?



MCCain won the state by 9 and you think with the economic condition of the country, with obama not likely to generate the same enthusiasm as 2008, you think he has a better chance in 2012 than in 2008?

Oh..please.

Is that like the Chewbacca Defense?
"Ladies and Gentlemen, this is Chewbacca. He is a Wookie. Therefore the President is a communist Kenyan Islamofacist terrorist Black Panther sympathizer. I rest my case.

Obama isn't even going to win Virginia this time. He has lost the independent vote.

He won by 14,000 votes in NC - that's with getting out every Left vote, every black vote, every dem vote, every youth vote.

Think he can duplicate that in 2012?

Here's what you're missing - his victory in 2008 was determined by approx 800,000 votes in swing states. EVERY possible vote came out for him, think that will happen again?
