I LOVE these polls. They make obama supporters think that obama is all safe and sound and doesn't need to pack his bags yet. obama does not have the same enthusiasm now as 2008. It would be smarter to say, " We are just a point behind in every state! Come on people you have GOT to vote for me!!!! It could all fall on one person!" But, I am glad the polls are skewed. A lot of the people that voted for him emphatically last time and now have only luke warm feelings will have a false sense of security in his win and they may just stay home instead of vote.

Okay, so let me get this straight:

Quote:
“Ohio voters see no difference between Obama or Romney on handling the economy. On every other issue but one, reducing the budget deficit, voters give the president the edge,” Brown said in the release. “Be it the taxes, foreign policy or Medicare and health care, they see Obama as preferable.”
We've had 3 and a half years of Obama, and the economy stinks, and do we really even need to mention the budget deficit. And you are seriously going to tell me, Obama wins outright in this poll on those issues?!?!?!

Im sorry, but they either polled heavily democrats or they pulled heavily a bunch of idiots.

I trust that Quinnipiac University, a well respected polling organization, knows a lot more about applying proper polling weights/methods...versus a Right Wing forum poster that argues against every poll that favors Obama and agrees with every poll that favors Romney.

There is no way that Quinnipiac would slant the polling methods one way or the other just to skew the results. They are after proper statistics. They are very skilled in their craft. They have been doing this a long time.

Look, there is no way that most people in Ohio are going to vote for Obama in 2012. They now know Obama. The Obama presidency chapter ends 2013. This is America.
