Disastrous News for the GOP as Obama Leads Romney in Three New Ohio Polls


Disastrous News for the GOP as Obama Leads Romney in Three New Ohio Polls

Three new polls of the critical swing state of Ohio all agree. Barack Obama is currently leading Mitt Romney in the Buckeye State.

Obama leads Romney in the Time poll 49%-44%. Time’s polling also revealed that there are two races going on in Ohio right now. Among voters who haven’t voted yet the candidates at tied 45%-45%, but President Obama is dominating Romney with early voters 60%-30%. Obama is leading with women 56%-37%, while Romney is leading with men, 51%-42%. Romney is leading with white voters (49-43), while Obama is leading big with young voters and minorities. Romney’s negative message about the economy isn’t working in Ohio, as 54% of those surveyed believed the country is on the wrong track, but 51% also believe that their state is on the right track.

Obama leads Romney 47%-44% in the SurveyUSA poll. Much like the Time poll, Romney leads with men (49%-42%), while Obama holds a double digit lead with women (52%-40%). Obama leads by nine points (49%-40%) with voters age 18-49, and Romney holds a small three point lead (49%-46%) with those over age 50. Romney leads Obama by just 5 points with white voters (49%-44), and the president leads 70%-22% with African-Americans.

A Lake Research poll has Obama leading 46%-44% in Ohio. The poll found that Romney is struggling with men in the state. The Republican leads Obama with men by just a four point margin, 47%-43%. Obama leads Romney with women 49%-41%. Romney’s biggest problem in the state is that more Ohio voters have a negative view (49%) than have a positive view (47%) of him. In contrast, 52% have a favorable view of Obama and 44% have an unfavorable view of the president.

Even Republican pollster Rasmussen has Romney tied with Obama (48%-48%). Rasmussen polls contain a 4 point Republican bias, so when the extra four points are factored in, even the Republican poll is in line with the other three. In total, four new polls of the state of Ohio were released today, and Mitt Romney is leading none of them.

10. No we're not f#cked. The news of Tagg's investment has been on the internet over a week now, and ..


and it has been on the cable news too.

So, folks know about it and those machines will be watched closely for any trickery that might occur.

6. Take a quick look at the polls. Then Get to Work. GOTV is all that matters.

If people on this forum would give 1-2 hours a day through election day we could effectively carry the day. Ad overload, people need to hear your voice asking for their vote. Try it, you'll like it. You can bring in an additional 500-1000 votes.

two of those leads are statistical ties. This is decent news for the prez, but nowhere near a disaster, especially since Willard's son will be counting the votes.

21. This is great news compared to all

the bullshit polls from RW pollster taking center stage and corporate media harping on them 24/7. I'm pretty sure the fake news and their partner in crime CNN and morning time NBC ain't talking about this at all nor the fucked up GOPpers concerning total disrespect for women, i.e., basically letting potential rapist know its OK to RAPE.

22. Still have to vote and the vote has to be so overwhelming, they can't possibly steal it. If

the polls show this "close" race, it is because the Republicans need all of us to think it's close. There is no way it's close.

35. Things on the ground are looking up in Ohio as well

... can't say I know why, but at least the giant "Obama is an economic terrorist" sign has disappeared from my neighborhood. There are a spattering of us in upper-suburbia with Obama yard sign, and the grade school kids in my daughter's class have voted for Obama, whereas my daughter's own informal poll last week was heavily in favor of Romney.

I think the kill shot was in the third debate. Every upper-middle manager of a small- or mid-cap company knows what vulture capital is, and when they hear Romney flip-flopping around like a slimy fish out of water about his position on the auto-bailout, and beleive me whether you work in law or banking or advertising or pretty much anything, a lot of your livelihood around here is tied to the auto supply chain, they lost a bit of the wind from their pro-Romney economic thinking as he stood up for the vultures, and refused to acknowledge that the Federal orchestrated auto-rescue in fact did work.
