Well, if you're going to use the Real Clear Politics map to show that Romney is ahead in electoral votes, why not also use it to show that Obama is leading in Pa.....49.7 to 44.7? Or do you just go with whatever poll shows Romney ahead lol

Because RCP uses AVERAGES on their polls

You don't even know if RPC has included that latest Susquehanna Poll at all.

Those last 3 polls are ancient, and PPP oversamples.

Your own link proves the point. The trend isn't good for Oblama and he's already lost the election. I hope you're able to find a different job after President Romney takes office.

Housing Starts Surge 15% - WSJ.com

Residential construction picked up momentum in September and now is running at its highest level in four years, a turn that could have a positive effect on the jobs market and the broader U.S. economy.

Builders started work on new houses and apartments at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 872,000 units last month, the Commerce Department said Wednesday, up 15% from August and 34.8% from September a year ago, far exceeding economists' expectations. The level of starts was the highest since July 2008.

Many economists contend that the rise in construction, if sustained, could boost job creation and economic growth. The National Association of Home Builders, a trade group, estimates that each home built generates three full-time jobs and $90,000 in new tax revenue.

So those 3 last polls weren't taken from early October as the site claims?

PPP uses a much smaller sample size and even claims to have a large MoE. It's statistically the outlier of the bunch.
