The main stream media has gone to great lengths to tell the American people that Obama still leads in most of the key swing states. How they report it makes you think the election is all but over and that Obama has pretty much already won re-election.
So I wonder if the main stream media will spend as much effort and air time reporting the latest poll results such as the Rasmussen Report which now shows that Romney has taken the lead in 11 key swing states. These states (Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin) carry a total of 146 Electoral College votes that Obama had won in 2008.
In 2008, Obama won these key swing states by a combined margin of 53% to 46%. Currently, Romney leads Obama by a combined margin of 49% to 47%.
In the same Rasmussen poll, voters in the swing states indicated that more of them already have their minds made up to vote for Romney (46%) than those who said their minds are made up to vote for Obama (40%). If those figures are correct, that means that only 14% of voters in the 11 swing states will vote for someone else, not vote, or are not sure who they will vote for at this time.
Among the registered voters polled, 38% said that Romney would be a more effective leader in Washington while only 34% said that Obama would be more effective.
Cliff Young, with Ipsos stated that in the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll, that Romney and Obama were dead even at 45%.
One aspect of this poll and most others is that Obama still leads by a wide margin in the categories of likeability. I don’t understand what there is to like about the man. He lies to everyone, disobeys the laws he chooses and shreds the U.S. Constitution to pieces every chance he gets. He reminds me of an angler fish who looks innocent and then lures in its prey and devours it before the prey realizes what has happened. And if you’ve ever seen an angler fish, they are not pretty to look at and neither is Obama. Every time I see or hear him, I see nothing but a vile and deadly menace that needs to be removed from the country before he can continue to harm anyone else. I just wish others saw the real Obama also because if they did, the presidential race would not be as close as it is now.
