SurveyUSA Election Poll #19214

This is a shocker.

Obama 47, Romney 43

Romney leads Obama among men 48 to 42.

Keep in mind that, in most polls, Obama's approval among the undecided voters is ~20%.

Is it time to start considering Oregon a "toss-up" or "battleground state"?

would to God....

if this is true and Romney wins here then Bammer will get NY and CA and thats about it.

But I am not buying it. Bammer is going to be very hard to beat and the economy has plenty of time to heat up.

If the econonmy looks good in October Bammer wins.

Rasmussen today has Romney +7. Dick Morriss (I know, I know, but he knows something about politics) paints a bleak picture for Obama:

As a republican who believes that Obama is the worst president since Carter and Hoover.... and as a person who believes that Obama has gone a long way to leaving America's future in extreme danger, I am going to work from the position that this is going to be a close election and Obama is the odds on favorite.

and I plan on working my butt off to insure I have done everything possible to defeat this incompetent.

I truly feel there is a better than 50% chance that history will put Obama in the Franklin Pierce category of most awful presidents.

I couldnít live with myself if I didnít do everything possible to see him ousted.

Interesting about Oregon I know there has been a spate of urban youth flash mobs I wonder if that's influencing the poll?

Gay marriage is going to end up as Obama's waterloo. It may place well in Hollywood circles but it doesn't play all that well in swing states.

Rasmussen is CONSISTENTLY in the tank for ANY Republican candidate.
