Obama is Toast Marathon V4.11

…and heeeeeerrrrrrre’s Barry the Toasted Marxist.
Why Mitt will Win.

Start with the polling. It appears that the bulk of the Obama post-convention bounce has been in blue states where his left-oriented convention stirred up the enthusiasm of an already committed group of voters. Among likely voters identified in the Washington Post poll — taken after the conventions — Obama holds a slim, 1-point edge. And an analysis of Rasmussen’s state-by-state likely-voter data indicates a tie in the battleground states (according to Breitbart).

But it’s not really a tie at all. All pollsters are using 2008 models of voter turnout. Some are combining ’04 and ’08 but skewing their samples to ’08 numbers. African-Americans cast 11 percent of the national vote in ’04, but their participation swelled to 13 percent in ’08. These 2 million new black voters backed Obama overwhelmingly. Will they come out in such numbers again? Will college and under-30 voters do so as well? Will Latino turnout be at historic highs? All these questions have to be answered in the affirmative for the polling samples so widely published to be accurate.

For example, when a poll shows an Obama lead among likely voters of, say, 47 percent to 45, it is based on an assumption that blacks will cast 13 percent of the vote. But the lack of enthusiasm among Obama’s base for his candidacy and their doubts about the economy make an 11 percent black turnout more likely. In this event, Romney would actually win 46 percent to 45.

The Empty Chair is Losing.

President Obama is headed to defeat in November, and it won’t be close.  Forget about the polls, and forget about the cadre of delusional Democrats who can’t stop telling us how great and successful the last three and a half years have been.  Slick Willy can shill all he likes, but seriously, he’s preaching to the choir, because the only ones believing his shtick are bought and paid for sycophants, crony capitalists, and members of the mainstream media. 

Can you think of a single person who didn’t vote for Barack Obama in 2008 but will vote for him this time around?  Yet it is easy to find former minions admitting to the dissolution of their belief in the primacy of the “one.”  These people will not vote for him again — and they are legion.

72% in poll say Obama economic record to be key factor in their vote

The Washington Post/ABC News poll released Monday showed that 72% of registered voters surveyed said President Obama‘s handling of the economy would be a major factor in their vote this November.

The issue easily topped other flash points in the race between Obama and his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney.

Exactly half of registered voters in the poll said the plan by Romney’s running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, to restructure Medicare would be a major factor in their choice. Likewise for the difference between Democrats and Republicans on women’s issues, highlighted by recent controversial comments about rape by Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.).

Just 20% of respondents said Romney’s position on releasing his tax returns would be a major factor. Democrats have pushed Romney to release more than two years of his returns.

Der Spiegel: ‘Obama’s Middle East Policy Is in Ruins’

US embassies in the Muslim world were on high alert Friday following days of violent protests against an anti-Islam film. Germany, too, closed several embassies in fear of attacks. Some German commentators argue that the violence shows that Obama’s Middle East policies have failed.

That’s all for today.

Romney’s poll numbers soars with independents

Posted in 2012, Obama, Paul Ryan, Romney with tags , , , , on September 12, 2012 by b5blue

Nero the Zero will not be pleased.

The CNN/ORC International poll of registered and likely voters released Tuesday shows likely voters favoring Obama by 52 percent to 46 percent over Romney — evidence, pundits said, of a post-convention bump for the president.

But a figure buried in the report shows Romney leading Obama among likely independent voters, 54 percent to 40 percent.


Romney also appears to have an advantage over Obama when it comes to voter enthusiasm.

The CNN/ORC International poll showed Republicans leading Democrats among the most enthusiastic voters, 62 percent to 56 percent. The enthusiasm level helps determine which party will show up in greater numbers to vote.

Narcissus Maximus might consider some change of address arrangements.

The bullstuff in the Ohio poll

Posted in 'Professional' Media, Obama, Romney with tags , , , , , on September 11, 2012 by b5blue

DaTechGuy covers the details of the Ohio poll mentioned in the previous Horse Hockey post.  Juicy tidbit:

But OK that’s a supposition, not a fact so if this poll is to be believed Romney is polling 3 pts above his conservative base yet obama is polling 22 pts above his liberal one.

Is there anyone ANYONE stupid enough to believe that? Are you?

This is the poll the MSM is pushing. These figures are available to them just as they are to me, why is it that they are treating these Ohio numbers as Gospel? The answer is in my previous post today from Sarah Hoyt:

However, unless you are going to deny that Journolist ever existed, that respectable journalists engaged to elect Barack Obama despite his deep negatives by coordinating attacks on anyone who challenged him, you can’t say they don’t conspire on the propaganda front. In fact, that’s all they have.

And let’s not forget that we’ve seen interesting interpretations of Ohio polls before (O+9 vs Romney in Nov 2011 REALLY, the same Obama union leaders kept out of their state? during their referendum.)

The MSM isn’t reporting to inform you, they are spinning to demoralize you and to energize a base that was so inspired by Obama they couldn’t fill the stadium in NC they reserved.

He has more details of the media treachery.  Go visit him.

Romney Campaign: The bravado, it’s a bunch of horse hockey

Posted in 'Professional' Media, 2012, General Politics, Obama, Romney with tags , , , , , on September 11, 2012 by b5blue

Rich Lowery and The National Review talk to the Romney campaign about the media blitz to convince us that Romney is losing:

It’s horses**t. Nobody in Boston thinks we’re going to lose. We’re in a tight race. We had a 4-5 point bounce after our convention and it evaporated when they had theirs. Now they have a 4-5 bounce. It’s going to evaporate in September. We feel good about the map. We’re up with advertising in Wisconsin and I think North Carolina is going to come off the board. On Ohio, they’ve been spinning for months now that it’s out of reach.

There was a Columbus Dispatch poll last week that had it 45-45.

That’s a more accurate picture of the state of the play there than any of the spin. PPP has these polls that just put chum in the water for the media. Sometimes I think there’s a conscious effort between the media and Chicago to get Republicans depressed. And I hope our friends realize that all these media analysts out there are Democrats WHO WANT US TO LOSE. And the more Washington DC controls our economy, the more important inside-the-beltway publications are and the more money they make. The 202 area code is dominated by people who will make more money if Obama is reelected, so it’s not just an ideological thumb they’re putting on the scale for him, it’s a business interest.

I actually think the other side is in a panic. You look at New Mexico closing up. And they’re not above 50 in any of their target states. Look, we’re raising money, they’re raising money, and it’s tight. This is a dogfight. But the numbers actually point to a Romney win barring something unforeseen.

I personally think Romney will romp.

Obama is Toast Marathon V3.62436

Doin’ tha Bump.  The Toast Marathons are getting more hits lately.  Woo Hoo!

Heeeeerrrrrreeeeee’s Toasty!

Healthy Ridicule:

Here was our favorite line from Mitt Romney’s convention speech: “President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and to heal the planet. My promise is to help you and your family.”

We liked it even better when we saw that the New York Times’s Nicholas Kristof had tweeted: “Seriously, Romney’s speech esp troubled me by mocking rising seas/climate change. The dismissiveness was appalling.” Gaia is a jealous Goddess, and She will not be mocked!

It actually hadn’t occurred to us that the Romney line was a repudiation of global warmism. If so, that’s lagniappe. What we enjoyed was the deft way in which Romney punctured Obama’s self-aggrandizement–by quoting his most immodest promise ever, pausing for effect, then making an almost comically modest promise of his own.

Get off of my (Oval Office) Lawn:

Ryan left the liberals Cryin’:

Mamma Mia! I love Mia Love:

Glenn Reynolds mentioned that there was a very high quality speech that was lost in the sea of other conservative celebrities… he recommended we watch it.  I agree.  Well worth five minutes.  Nice job Ms. Edmonds:

Ouchie: Rasmussen Daily tracking poll has Romney up by 3 points.

Apparently the Democrats in Charlotte have B.O. (Barack Obama): Hillary Clinton to stay as far as possible away from the Democrat Convention.
WOO HOO! Occupy RNC ends in tears and frustration!

This is not the Tweet of a Confident Man:

New Florida poll shows vindication of Eastwood Strategy

1,211 adults were interviewed statewide 08/31/12, after Romney, Florida’s Marco Rubio and Clint Eastwood spoke to the convention 08/30/12. Of the adults, 1,100 were registered to vote in Florida. Of the registered voters, 754 heard the convention speeches. Of the convention speech watchers:

* 66% did not change their mind.
* 16% switched from “undecided” to Romney.
* 6% switched from Obama to Romney.
* Adding those 2 together, that’s 22% who switched TO Romney.
* 10% switched from “undecided” to Obama.
* 2% switched from Romney to Obama.
* Adding those 2 together, that’s 12% who switched TO Obama.
* Comparing the 2 aggregate numbers: 22% switched TO Romney, 12% switched TO Obama.

Some Anti-Obama signs freaking out peopleIn Massachusetts, no less:

Voter Fraud and the Collapse of Democrat Registration in Florida.

That’s all for today.  Obama’s toast, y’all.

Romney convention ‘bounce’ should be better than Obama’s

Posted in Obama, Paul Ryan, Romney with tags , , , on August 27, 2012 by b5blue

Courtesy of Paul Bedard and The Washington Examiner Juicy part:

“The American people already know Barack Obama well,” said Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball team of political experts at the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics. “Romney’s numbers probably have more room to grow,” said Sabato.

On average, Republican presidential candidates see a 5.9 percent poll bounce; Democrats a 4.3 percent convention bounce.
