Take a look at these polls; then a quick question for you…
Rasmussen Reports – Romney = 49% / Obama = 47% (Margin of Error +/- 3.0)
ABC News/Wash Post – Romney = 49 / Obama = 48% (Margin of Error +/- 3.0)
CBS News/NY Times – Romney = 47% / Obama = 48% (Margin of Error +/- 4.5)
Pew Research – Romney = 47% / Obama = 47% (Margin of Error +/- 2.9)
Gallup – Romney = 51% / Obama = 46% (Margin of Error +/- 2.0)
NPR – Romney = 48% / Obama = 47% (Margin of Error +/- 3.1)
IBD/TIPP – Romney = 44% / Obama = 45% (Margin of Error +/- 3.5)
Politico/GWU – Romney = 48% / Obama = 49% (Margin of Error +/- 3.5)
Now, out of these 8 polls, Romney and Obama are “Tied” in one, Romney leads in 4, and Obama leads buy only 1 point in 3.
Question…notice how the 3 Obama lead in have a higher “Margin of Error” than the rest?
The way I look at it; people who think they are/or could be wrong are always leaving themselves more wiggle room for when they are…

I could not agree more. This would be why I may listen to media reports but unless I am able to check the fact for myself it will go in one ear and out the other.
I have voted for both Democrats and Republicans; this years truly a toss up of who is the lesser of two evils.
The polls this year are all over the place, but O seems to be edging up.

Looks like Obama is pulling ahead in the polls, beyond the margin of error. I think the DNC gave him a nice boost!

AP and Gallup both have Obama up by one, Rasmussen has Romney up by two. I think I know why the polls are so tight. Romney's recent "hard line" has gained him more support in red states - but not in swing states. Obama seems to be pulling away in most of the swing states. So while Romney...

Does Barack Obama hate white people?A lot of people who are suffering from Hurricane Sandy are white people and all Barack Obama did was visit for a photo op and then go back to campaigning. It's been two weeks and a lot of people are still homeless or don't have power.
