    They're giving all three states to Romney and will not conduct any more polls there.


    I could maybe see NC, but even there, I wouldn't put money on Romney's winning. Are they basing their decision on a single debate?? Has anyone told them that there are two more Romney-Obama debates and a VP debate?? This simply blows my mind. This could make Romney supporters in those states complacent and keep them from voting.

      Habee, as a Florida resident that spends a lot of time "out and about." I can tell you, of the hundreds of people I talk to, I can only recall three that are voting for Obama. Those three are staunch intellectual academic liberals that will never change. The pollsters appear to be correct.

      One thing I find interesting is an observation of reactions when I am out in a public place like a bar or restaurant and the news is on; the outrage people are voicing over the administration’s handling of the attacks in Libya. The outright lies told in making excuses for political cover and the associated limp wristed foreign policy naïveté’ is really infuriating people.

      These events seem to have coagulated the feelings of mistrust a lot of people have towards the President. The debate just confirmed Obama as the idealist that many suspected and an incompetent. Many people that I know personally that would never before discuss politics or religion in these types of settings are now very vocal about their support for Romney as “the only choice.” 

      One thing that you do not need to be concerned about in Florida is people going to the polls, registered voters are angry, and many regret the mistake they made in 2008. So much so they actually admit it and can’t wait to correct it. A big buzz word in my area is RESET.

        Yeah, well I'm from Florida and the people I've talked to are voting for Obama. As for the opinions about Romney, 9 out of 10 women I've asked are afraid of he will eliminate planned parenthood among other women's rights. So, I respectfully disagree with your polling of people you have asked.

          Planned Parenthood is that the same folks that believe abortions should be free to all women, and the taxpayers should pay all their medical expenses birth control etc.
          Just asking...

            Planned parenthood is also the only health care a lot of woman have access to.  And if they have an abortion that is their legal right.  Being poor should not deprive them of access to it.

              That really does not answer the question, does it? smile

          9 out of 10 women are concerned about who pays for their birth control other than themselves; and that is the only decision making paradigm they are applying to their individual presidential vote?

          Sounds to me like 9 more reasons to vote against Obama.

          What many fail to realize, is that even if planned parenthood was defunded by the federal government, it would still take care of women's health issues.  Nature abhors a vacumn and some entity will fill any void that would be created by defunding planned parenthood.
          I could be wrong though, after all if nature abhors a vacumn, how do we explain Joe Biden? smile

            That is the most illogical thing I have read all month. Nature may abhor a vacuum and the free market certainly does but family planning is not a for profit agency so there is no reason for anyone or anything to step in to do the same thing, it is totally incorrect to presume someone or something would.

      Maybe they can see the forest despite the trees . . . ignorance is short lived historically.

    @Habee, there are so many things that people don't know about Obama, if you get a chance, watch 2016: Obama's America, it is a documentary. Real people are interviewed that know a lot more about Obama than what the media puts out there. I think A lot of people who were for Obama are starting to wake up and realize he's a wolf in sheeps clothing...just sayin'

      Traycee, I'm voting for Romney, but I'm a realist. Obama still has A LOT of support.

    The polls are simply not a reliable way to predict the election.

    After tonight, I'm sure once again it will change.  I know only a handful of people voting for Romney.  And it's not because they  like him.  It's simply an anti- democrat vote.  Ryan's pause tonight while discussing abortion cost his ticket votes.  Florida is as different as the country itself.  The mid sections almost always vote Republican. The coasts are more moderate and liberal, except sections of the panhandle.

    Back to the OP.
    This does seem like an unprecedented move.
    But then, this entire campaign has been historical in many ways -- most of them not good.
