Swing-State Poll: Obama Lead Grows

Source: TPM

President Obama leads Mitt Romney in a new poll of 12 key swing states.

Obama leads 49 percent to 44 percent in the poll from Purple Strategies.

The poll is a combined sample of likely voters in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin, and also shows good news for Obama in over-sampled results for Ohio, Virginia, Florida and Colorado. Last month’s Purple Poll showed Romney with a slight edge in swing states, 47 percent to Obama’s 46 percent.

1. Why doesn't Mittens just call it quits?

His 47% remark was the final nail in the coffin. He and the rest of the GOP know he sure as hell isn't gonna win now.

2. There are what I call 4 "Republican bell-weather" houses in my city (WI)

I know who NOT to vote for by what they put in their yards. Fox-loving, anti-abortion, Xtian-like households who put up every sign for every far-right candidate in Wisconsin and Dane Co. And yet not ONE of them has a RMoney sign in their yards. Not one.

I have seen a grand total of TWO RMoney bumper stickers in Wisconsin and one was on an out-of-state vehicle.

5. I've seen very, very few Romney campaign materials in my town.

I've also seen very few Obama campaign materials.

12. I've seen them all over the place

 

I live in Kentucky, and literally, you can't swing a dead cat w/o hitting a Romney sign. It's very disappointing, too, since us rednecks enjoy cat swinging so much. I've NEVER seen it like this before (I'm 50). Even back when Reagan had those two landslide victories in '80 and '84, there wasn't repub signs out like they are now. If signs did the voting, it would be a 10-to-1 Romney victory in Kentucky (and no, I'm not exaggerating). Granted, nobody really expected Obama to win here, but I still can't get over the overwhelming flood of Romneyites (or maybe it's just the lack of Obama signs this time around).

Perhaps I should drive up to Chicago to see a place where it is the other way around.

13. The smart people in Kentucky don't want to put up with any repub grief over a sign.

Otherwise, there'd be a lot of Obama signs up, I'm sure. Drive to Ohio, instead. Its going to go for Obama and, depending on where you live, it may be a lot closer than Chicago.

17. I personally think that all the yard signs really show...

...how DESPERATE these people are to try and elevate their lipstick-smeared pig-candidate to legitimacy when they don't really trust the fucker as far as they could toss him, themselves.

By the way, down here in cajun-land, every crawfish boil or cochon de lait features at least ONE good cat swingin'. Of course, the cats don't really mind 'cause they're too full of crawfish or roast pig to give a shit.

On edit, excuse my manners! - welcome to DU, me112233!

8. It would be funny

to put an Rmoney sign in their yards.

It would be a good to tie the local pugs to their failing national canidate.

3. Minnesota is not a swing state.

It's purple in local and state politics, but it hasn't voted republican in a presidential race since 1972. 2000 was close enough that they started trying to win here, but they've actually done worse ever since. This year, it's going to be a 10-15 point spread. Romney is a joke.

4. What if Pres. Obama leads Mitt by 20 points....

and Mittens wins the election...

Will they finally look into giving us a better voting system?

Or will the Repukes steal all the elections from now
until we get really pissed?

Just a thought

7. The Teabaggers Control 27 States with 270 Electoral Votes

So they CAN steal it, or even award it to Robme by legislative fiat. That is almost certainly the plan.

Given Robme's continuing movement to the right, even though he already has the nomination, it is clear he is making no effort to appeal to swing voters or independents, only to the hard-core crazies. Why else would he do that?

He is acting as though he knows that our votes will not matter.

6. Very Few Romney signs or bumper stickers



here in Northwest Florida. And this is a very conservative part of Florida. (Joe Scarborough's hometown!) Went heavily for Bush in 2000 and 2004. I have seen a few Obama signs around town and a few bumper stickers. Even fewer Romney bumper stickers and probably NO signs. Our neighbor had a McCain/Palin Sign in their yard in 2008. This year, they've had one sign for a local election for Clerk of the Court. NO Romney sign.

9. Romney is STILL in denial

When asked on tv, "Republicans are concerned about you slipping in the polls. They want to know what you are going to do to turn this thing around?" Romney says, "We're actually TIED in the polls..." How can a person "continue" to be in denial?

16. Remember the phrase "reality based community"?

Rmoney is NOT in the "reality based community", these are the "We make our own reality" people. The question is whether they can still fudge it enough and whether, if they do, the public and the rest of the political establishment will put up with it again.
