More Voter Intimidation: Eric Holder’s People Back in Philadelphia

November 6, 2012 at 10:12 am (2012 Election, Eric Holder, Intimidation, New Black Panther Party, Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Polls, Voter Intimidation)

Before we get wrongly accused of racism, you might recall that Eric Holder famously referred to the case against New Black Panther Party members who showed up to Philly voting stations in 2008 wielding clubs as demeaning to “my people“.

Guess what?  They’re back…

This is a photo from the 14th Ward in Philadlephia.

Local TV stations are aware of yet another blatant attempt at intimidating voters by the uber-racist New Black Panther Party.
And now Fox News has reported on it:

Republican Internal Polling Has Romney Up in Ohio, Iowa, New Hampshire, Tied in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin

November 5, 2012 at 5:33 pm (2012 Election, Dick Morris, Iowa, Mitt Romney, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Polls, Republican, Wisconsin)

If these figures are correct, Romney will almost certainly become the 45th President of the United States…

Via the Daily Mail:

Mitt Romney is ahead by a single percentage point in Ohio, according to internal polling data provided to MailOnline by a Republican party source.

Internal campaign polling completed last night by campaign pollster Neil Newhouse has Romney three points up in New Hampshire, two points up in Iowa and dead level in Wisconsin and – most startlingly – Pennsylvania.

If the Romney campaign’s internal numbers are correct – and nearly all independent pollsters have come up with a picture much more favourable for Obama – then the former Massachusetts governor will almost certainly be elected 45th U.S. President.

Then there’s these headlines on Drudge:

It’s going to be a stressful day tomorrow for most of us.  But not in the mind of Dick Morris, who is predicting a Romney landslide.

Via Gateway Pundit:

Dick Morris doubled-down today telling Megyn Kelly on America Live there is a 90% chance Mitt Romney will win tomorrow and a 60% chance it will be a landslide.

Only time will tell, but I tend to lean towards Morris’ and George Will’s thinking.  Romney wins going away.

Romney Takes First Lead in Ohio Poll

October 29, 2012 at 2:18 pm (2012 Election, Ohio, Polls, President Obama, Rasmussen)

The momentum remains firmly in the Romney camp as election day draws ever closer.  Apparently, Obama beat Mitt so badly in those last two debates, that he still can’t stop the bleeding at the polls.

Now, for the first time, Romney has taken the lead in the Presidential race in Ohio.

Via Rasmussen (h/t Jim):

The race for Ohio’s Electoral College votes remains very close, but now Mitt Romney now has a two-point advantage.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Ohio Voters shows Romney with 50% support to President Obama’s 48%. One percent (1%) likes some other candidate, while another one percent (1%) remains undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Ohio remains a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College Projections. Based on the current projections, Romney would have to win Wisconsin if he loses Ohio in order to move into the White House.

The candidates have been locked in a very tight battle in Ohio since August. A week ago, Romney and Obama were tied in the Buckeye State with 48% support each. This is the first time Romney has taken even a modest lead in the race.

While a modest disparity, all indicators are pointing toward Romney’s momentum carrying all the way up until election day.

Mitt-mentum baby!

Reuters Poll: Romney Gains Four Points Since Debate

October 6, 2012 at 9:35 am (2012 Election, Debate, Mitt Romney, Polls, President Obama, Unemployment)

Weren’t the liberals in the media trying to convince us that the race was over just a week ago?

Via Yahoo! (h/t Hot Air):

President Barack Obama’s lead over challenger Mitt Romney has narrowed to just two percentage points since the Republican’s strong performance in their first debate, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Friday.

In more bad news for Obama, one in five voters said the Democrat’s performance in the contest in Denver on Wednesday made them feel more negative about him and almost a third said they felt more positive about his Republican challenger…

Obama had led Romney by 6 percentage points in the poll released on Wednesday and the edge narrowed to five points – a 48-43 percent lead for Obama – in polling up to Thursday. That was the first including a day of interviews after the meeting in Denver…

More than 9 out of 10 registered voters – 91 percent – said they had seen, heard or read something about the debate, and 54 percent said they thought Romney had done a better job.

Allahpundit at Hot Air also unveils this brutal ad.  Not a word is uttered, and yet it speaks volumes about the need to put the Obama experiment behind us as a nation.

Watch…

Pollsters Really Want You to Believe Obama is Winning Big, Problem Is They Don’t Believe It Themselves

September 26, 2012 at 11:08 am (2012 Election, Bias, Democrats, Florida, Hugh Hewett, Mitt Romney, New York Times, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Peter Brown, Polls, President Obama, Quinnipiac)

A new poll released by the New York Times seems to be very dreadful news for the Romney campaign.

For weeks, Republicans in Ohio have been watching with worry that the state’s vital 18 electoral votes were trending away from Mitt Romney. The anxiety has been similar in Florida, where Republicans are concerned that President Obama is gaining the upper hand in the fight for the state’s 29 electoral votes.

Those fears are affirmed in the findings of the latest Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS News polls of likely voters in both states, which show that Mr. Obama has widened his lead over Mr. Romney and is outperforming him on nearly every major campaign issue, even though about half said they were disappointed in Mr. Obama’s presidency.

Upon further review, the poll is just another example of how the media is intentionally manipulating numbers in an attempt to keep Romney voters discouraged, and by extension, from showing up to the polls.

Jamie Wearing Fools explains just how the Times ended up with their numbers, and why the reality is that those swing states appear more as a dead heat right now, than a landslide victory for the President.

So Obama allegedly is up 10 in Ohio, 9 in Florida and 12 in Pennsylvania? Sure.
Here’s the sample they use.
So Obama is up 9 in Florida with a D+9 sample, up 10 in Ohio with a D+9 sample and up 12 in Pennsylvania with a D+11 sample. I notice in all the orgasmic news reports this morning none of them mention the ridiculous skew to the polls. But all you will hear all day is how big a lead Obama has.

Here’s the real kicker though.  The Assistant Director of Quinnipiac Polling, when asked about the sampling data used in a previous similarly skewed poll stated that even he didn’t think the numbers matched up with the likely voter turnout come November.

From Da Tech Guy:

By an odd coincidence the last time this poll came out Hugh Hewett questioned Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac Polls and asked him about this (emphasis mine):

Hugh Hewett: But I don’t know how that goes to the issue, Peter, so help me. I’m not being argumentative, I really want to know. Why would guys run a poll with nine percent more Democrats than Republicans when that percentage advantage, I mean, if you’re trying to tell people how the state is going to go, I don’t think this is particularly helpful, because you’ve oversampled Democrats, right?

Peter Brown: But we didn’t set out to oversample Democrats. We did our normal, random digit dial way of calling people. And there were, these are likely voters. They had to pass a screen. Because it’s a presidential year, it’s not a particularly heavy screen.

HH: And so if, in fact, you had gotten a hundred Democrats out of a hundred respondents that answered, would you think that poll was reliable?

PB: Probably not at 100 out of 100.

HH: Okay, so if it was 75 out of 100…

PB: Well, I mean…

HH: I mean, when does it become unreliable? You know you’ve just put your foot on the slope, so I’m going to push you down it. When does it become unreliable?

PB: Like the Supreme Court and pornography, you know it when you see it.

HH: Well, a lot of us look at a nine point advantage in Florida, and we say we know that to be the polling equivalent of pornography. Why am I wrong?

PB: Because what we found when we made the actual calls is this kind of party ID.

HH: Do you expect Democrats, this is a different question, do you, Peter Brown, expect Democrats to have a nine point registration advantage when the polls close on November 6th in Florida?

PB: Well, first, you don’t mean registration.

HH: I mean, yeah, turnout.

PB: Do I think…I think it is probably unlikely.

This is the man conducting the polls saying essentially that he doesn’t think the oversampling of Democrats used in the poll will be representative of the turnout in November.

There’s still plenty of work for Romney to do to win these swing states, but Republicans need not nearly be as concerned as the media would like them to be.

Michelle Obama Tells Supporters to Get to the Polls On November the 2nd

August 23, 2012 at 4:17 pm (2012 Election, First Lady, Michelle Obama, November 6th, November the 2, Polls)

If you do show up to the polls on the 2nd, make sure you bring one of your little Occupy tents with you.

Michelle Obama, speaking yesterday at a campaign event in Florida:

So that one new voter that you register in your precinct — think about it — that one neighbor that you get to the polls on November the 2, I want you to understand, that could be the one that makes the difference. That one conversation, that one new volunteer you recruit, that could be the one that puts this over the top. 

The presidential election this year is November 6.

Actually, we’d prefer it if all of the President’s supporters showed up on the 8th.  Just trying to be helpful.
