It cracks me up how the Mittens supporters pick and choose which polls to believe and when.

(Hint: They believe them when Mittens is leading. LOL)

Yeah, crowing when the poster think it shows Mittens up by one, but it's "no big deal" that it actually shows Obama up by three.

Go figure.

49% Trust Romney Over Obama on Economy; 39% Trust President More
Romney leads Obama in new VA poll
Romney Leads In Maryland by 17

Tell the Mittster they need to train you guys in the 101st Keyboard Kommandos a little better.
Thanks for posting those links.

WHO started this thread touting the Rasmussen poll that has now swung back towards Mitt?

My gosh, I thought the thoroughly damaged Romney wouldn't even have a chance.

Yes, I imagine that "Willard Romney" and "Barry Soetoro" will swing back and forth in the polls like a pendulum before election day.

Absolutely. A right wing poll has Willard up by one, they pull out the pom-poms and go on a cheerleading fest.

If they show Willard losing (along with the rest of the polls) they say "big deal"

Truly a warped mindset.

I wonder if you realize this is exactly what YOU do. Proof in this thread.

Gallup & Rasmussen now have Mitt leading again.

After the last couple of big elections here in Canada where the pollesters got it VERY WRONG, I'm now taking all polls with a big "Grain of Salt". In the election in Alberta a couple of weeks ago they were something like 75% off the result. Same thing in the Ontario election and our national election of a year ago.

The thing that is striking about this is that in all these cases it was the right wing the polls were saying would do so much better than they did. Something about that just smells fishy to me!!!!!
