    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…

      If you believe the polls accurately predict the election, why go vote?

      People need to think for themselves instead of believing what they see on TV or hear on the radio.

        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.
