Poll by Lambert, a Michigan pollster.



6 polls have came out on Michigan this month and 5 have shown a statistical tie. This state is absolutely in play as much as a few posters would like to pretend otherwise.

Statewide: Romney 40, Obama 40.

Critical Detroit Suburbs: Macomb County Dead Even, Oakland County Obama +1.

Among women, Dead even.

Among Independents, Romney +6.

People who only have a cell phone - no land line Obama +40. The poll believes it has adjusted to compensate for a common mistake of not getting enough cell phones. Still good news for Obama.

Undecided 20% -- good news for Romney - historically they break for the challenger by a nice ratio.

Excited to vote for Obama, Democrats 75% -- Romney, Republicans 56%

Plan to vote for Obama, Democrats 85% -- Romney, Republicans 87%

I think Michigan can be put in toss up category. I'm not sure when the MSM will follow suit. Obama's pandering to certain demos will result in more traditional blue states moving to toss up and even lean Romney status.

The lefties just don't care. They will go on and on to say that "the great President Obama" is a shoe-in, that "Mittens" has actually no chance, he will get 60% of the vote nationally, etc., etc., etc. It's really quite amusing.

It doesn't matter. Mr President will trot out another one of his constituencies being harmed, warred against, and otherwise being mis-treated; just like Ms Fluke, if I had a son, the boys and girls getting married - to each other -, and finally, our Latino friends who are not citizens, but would like to be without all of the normal immigrant right of passage stuff.

Maybe we ought to start a pool to see what is the next manufactured issue, and which downtrodden, but important constituency is hoisted up next. Everybody up for $5 a guess?

Almost non-stop Obama ads on air today in my neck of the woods in Michigan. Obama realizes that this state is neck and neck.

Obama is toast. When a far left state like Michigan has Obama in a "toss up", on clearly understands that the wild enthusiasm of 2008 was an aberration and a reaction against Bush. People are on their knees and want competent leadership. That "leadership" is certainly not Obama. Everyone, except liberals, know that. Obama loses in a landslide.
