Polling wise, here is the problem for Obama:

With this headline,  POLL: 43% of voters certain they will vote for Romney. 42% certain they will vote for Obama. Remaining 15% either uncommitted or open to changing mind.... MORE...  we have Rasmussen’s opinion that 15 percent remain in the “independent” grouping.  The problem is seen in the historical fact that 70 percent of "undecided" go to the challenger when it comes time to “pull the lever.”  Understand that the “undecided” know the incumbent and,  for whatever reason,  remain “undecided.”  Not good for the incumbent.  

Nearly 1 million folks have listened to this video in the past 5 days. It is long (18 minutes) but deals with all aspects of the Israeli problem and Obama's duplicitous conduct with regard to Israel.

If you vote for Obama,  is it because you simply do not care about Israel’s existence.  Understand this,  if Israel is destroyed by Iran,  Obama’s time as president will have run its course.  You have never seen an American demonstration as large and as [potentially] as violent as those that would occur in this country,  following a defeat of the Jewish nation.  

This is not the "first time." Obama has resurrected this challenge , for a second time, but only to beg for money. Understand that Sarah challenged Obama to this debate nearly one year ago. The challenge was ignored, then, proving Obama to be all talk and no action. And he continues to run for cover, in this campaign cycle. Cluck, cluck, cluck.

Update:  the question remains,  "Why would Obama decide to use Palin's challenge in the current campaign?"    Answer:  he has nothing else to say.  There is simply no other rational answer.  

Original text: 
You should know that this was a challenge,  made by Sarah Palin,  nearly a year ago.  Rather than respond with a time and date for debate,  Obama is using this as he appeals to nothing but unreasoned bias,  as he continually begs for money.  

While you all are laughing at the suggestion that Palin could wipe the floor with Obama,  still,  your fearless leader will not appear on FoxNews, much less debate the Governor.  You can hear the chickens’ “cluck” as they pretend to be brave in the face of battle but the fact of the matter is this:  Obama does not want people to actually see the choice they must make in this election.  Take it to the bank,  Obama would never debate anyone if it were not forced on him by  election cycle standards. 

He is a coward of the first order and acts like one when confronted with the facts. 
Think about this:  if Obama wanted to destroy the TEA Party,  once and for all,  all he needs to do is meet Sarah Palin in a classic debate.  For the sake of argument,  let’s allow Obama a very one sided victory over the Conservative Queen.  Would that not be the end of the conservative movement?  And,  if not the “end,”  certainly a devastating blow to the grassroots movement. 

So what are you all afraid of?  Bring it on.  Blowhards and cowards,  all.   

Two more American soldiers murdered in Afghanistan. Total dead fighting Obama's war: 2,000. Anyone know what the "Commander" has in mind besides a full-throated retreat all in the name of a "negotiated peace?" Understand that this is a man who will throw ANYONE under "the bus." Kind of scary when your kid is fighting for this person, no?

Understand that Commander Hussein Obama is thinking of returning the Blind Shiek to Egypt in a show of “peace.”  The word is already out that he is about to release 55 “detainees” out of GITMO.  He has ordered a “stand down” on air support for our troops,  he,  willing to sacrifice our men and women to the enemy for an imagined sense of “fairness.”   

When asked,  he has refused to give “victory” a working definition.  

He has outed the Navy Seal Team that killed Osama bin Laden  --  17 members of this team were,  then,  murdered 12 weeks later.  He has outed the name of the Seal who wrote the truth about the killing of bin Laden  . . . .  revealed the man’s name (!!!) in one of the most despicable retaliatory actions ever taken by a Commander against one of his own. 

He has walked off and left the Pakistani, bin Laden-informant,  to rot and die in a Muslim prison somewhere in that country. You can take this prediction to the bank: the American press will never mention this story again.  In time,  we all will forget about this man,   one of the key “players” in the killing of Osama bin Laden.  He will die in anonymity without a footnote in history.      

Hussein O. has bragged and bragged about killing Osama  (i.e. “Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive)  more than 20 times at the National Convention.  He has released secret information to the Hollywood media in return for a film detailing the killing.  This bit of Obama propaganda  is scheduled to be released in December after members of his campaign team talked him out of releasing the “Osama bin Laden is dead” movie in the weeks before the election.   (Anyone want to bet that we will never see this film??)

He is treating the “war on terror”  as if there is no war.  In his pathetic mind,  the war ended the day Osama was killed. 

He is pulling the United States out of the Middle East in toto,  leaving us with no serious influence in the region.  Apparently,  he thinks he can buy the allegiance of Muslim leadership without diplomacy or a military presence  . . . . .after all,  pay-offs,  bribes,  and gifts to the American voting poor have worked so well for him back  in the Homeland.  

Not only are we gone from the region,  he stopped interrogating the Muslim enemy the day he took office.  I am telling you that the has not interrogated a single "detainee" in four years.  

That Libyan problem?  He did not see it coming because he no longer wants to know what the hell they are doing . . . . so he doesn't bother to ask.  We know less about Jihads intentions than we did the day he took office.  

He is our first president with a criminal's heart and conscience.  Time for him to be gone.  

Update: keep in mind that in Egypt,  Muslim radical took 19 hostages,  6 or 7 (no one seems to know for certain) of them were Americans.  Obama because the first American president to pay a ransom for the release of hostages.  It got virtually no "press" at the time,  but the fact is Obama shelled out 5 million dollars and took this "Carter-like" story off the table.  

"They’re hoping that conservatives can be buffaloed with a bit of cheap free-market rhetoric into not noticing that something is excruciatingly amiss" and, with this caveat in mind, a partnership between Big Money and the Conservative Nation will continue through November 6, 2012.

<<< I know this comes as a shock to our Liberal friends,  but this is a picture of the "middle class."  See any rich folk in this crowd of 2 million gathered on September 12, 2009, at the steps of the Capital?  You can see the Capital,  about a mile and a half down the road.  

The following excerpt is taken from page 6 of an award winning article in the National Review Online,  titled:  Repo Man,  dated December 19, 2011/written by  — Kevin D. Williamson,   deputy managing editor of National Review.  

Williamson describes,  in some detail,  the nature of the existential threat to this nation,  and what Big Money is doing to reel in the raging conservative opposition.  Problem:  for a time,  Big Money Managers,  bitch-slapped by the Obama Administration over and over again,   and  tea-party conservatives must be united if the nation, as we know it,  is to survive.  After the election (November 6),  we can resume our "normal" calling(s):  you know,  lying and cheating each other silly.  

" . . . . .   The bigger problem is that while MF Global was both acting as a broker for its customers and making its own bets, it failed to keep the customers’ money segregated from its own, which is why some $600 million in customers’ money went missing. Now there’s a whole bunch of people wanting to get paid back and not enough money for everybody to get made whole, and the big Wall Street banks want to make sure that they’re first in line, with the government rewriting the rules of bankruptcy to put them ahead of the local-yokel customers out in the sticks. If you don’t think that the government can just arbitrarily rewrite the bankruptcy rules to suit its political preferences, revisit the General Motors bailout, when it did just that, shortchanging bondholders in favor of the union goons who act as Democratic footsoldiers and dues-collectors.

“At the risk of oversimplifying it,” one Wall Street insider explains, “imagine a bank went bankrupt. Then the regulators came in and cracked open all the customers’ safe-deposit boxes, even though they knew for certain that none of the contents belonged to the bank. Then they tossed those assets into the pile for the creditors to pick through and told the box holders to get in line as well. That’s what folks are saying is happening here. And in a situation like that, who wants a safe-deposit box?”

So there you have it: hedge-fund titans, i-bankers, congressional nabobs, committee chairmen, senators, swindlers, run-of-the-mill politicos, and a few outright thieves (these categories are not necessarily exclusive) all feeding at the same trough, and most of them betting that Mitt Romney won’t do anything more to stop it than Barack Obama did. If anything, the fact that Romney is having the least luck with the firm that knows him best speaks better of him than does the enthusiasm he apparently inspires in Goldman Sachs et al. . . . . . . .  Either way, the last thing Wall Street wants is for the Corzine scandal to launch a new round of frenzied outrage out there on the fruited plains where dwell people who don’t know an IPO from a CDS, and who might suspect that something here is not entirely on the up-and-up. They’re hoping that conservatives can be buffaloed with a bit of cheap free-market rhetoric into not noticing that something is excruciatingly amiss here. They are the repo men, headpiece filled with subprime-mortgage derivatives, and they are looking to repossess the Republican party they abandoned in 2008 (see “Losing Gordon Gekko,” National Review, March 9, 2009)."

Bill Murray: He was serious when he said, "We all should be more responsible for our circumstance." He was kidding about the "compost" part.

"Not all Democrats were segregationists, but all segregationists were Democrats and there were enough of them to demand compliance from the rest of the party," Ann Coulter in Mugged.

It is time for the "We love blacks" Democrat Party myth to end.  Paying Blacks to vote "Democrat"  cannot continue. More and more Blacks are realizing that welfare does not grow the middle class,  that there is no "upward mobility" as a result of receiving welfare in the form of food stamps and living assistance,  whether truly needed or not.  

Forty years of such nonsense finds the Black community just as poor,  just as poorly educated,  just as prosecuted,  and just as angry as they were in the beginning of the "war on poverty."  7 billion dollars has done nothing except to continue their dependence on those who need their votes.  

This is what I know.  

The following is what I have trumpeted on this blog,  for four years:   

It was Southern Democrats who invented the KKK,  fought against slave emancipation during the Civil War.  It was the Democrat Party that segregated the military in both world wars  (Pres Wilson in WW 1,  and FDR in WW 2).  In fact,  FDR,  lead dog in the Democrat Party during the WW 2,  refused to receive Jesse Owens,  in his triumphant return from the German Games in 1936.  Owens died,  deeply offended by the Democrat's rejection of him.  

Abraham Lincoln was a Republican.  His principles on race remain the conservative opinion,  today.  Martin Luther King,  Jr., was a Republican,  as well.  

The 1964 Civil Rights Bill was first proposed by the GOP under Eisenhower in the mid-1950's,  but, was defeated by the segregationist in the Democrat Party.    When it was passed into law,  under LBJ (he fought against the first proposition in the '50's),  there was a larger percentage of Republicans supporting the law's passage than Democrats.  

When the Democrat Party got too Marxist for the segregationists,  these bigoted losers moved into the GOP and,  have been a part of the conservative landscape ever since.  

Now,  Ann Coulter has written a definitive book on the subject.  We,  conservatives,  have allowed the Democrats to rewrite history for far too long.   And the people they murdered and enslaved,  have fallen for this deceit and continue to serve at the feet of their one time masters.  

From the Publisher:  

“This isn’t a story about black people—it’s a story about the Left’s agenda to patronize blacks and lie to everyone else.” 

For decades, the Left has been putting on a play with themselves as heroes in an ongoing civil rights movement which they were mostly absent from at the time. Long after pervasive racial discrimination ended, they kept pretending America was being run by the Klan and that liberals were black America’s only protectors.

It took the O. J. Simpson verdict—the race-based acquittal of a spectacularly guilty black celebrity as blacks across America erupted in cheers—to shut down the white guilt bank.

Romney moves from 11 points down to 6 points up on Hussein Obama and the war on terror.

Bloomberg International Poll results:

Voter Concerns: 
The economy and jobs are the #1 concern of the American voter.  That scored 43%  with  deficit concerns running a distant 2nd at 14%.  Healthcare came in third (11%),  followed by gas prices and the Middle East crisis,  in that order. 

Only 19% of those questioned in this “pro-Obama” poll,  believes that ObamaCare should be left alone,  with no amendment. 

Most remarkable in this poll is the ignorance-on-display of the electorate regarding Obamanomics. Those surveyed by Bloomberg, a heavily weighted Leftist poll,    has no clue as to the disaster that is the Obama Administrations circumvention of congress as he grows federal regulations beyond reason,  runs the coal industry into the ground and has kept gas prices at twice the per-gallon price at the time he took office.  

On the plus side,  Romney has moved from an 11 point deficit as to the war on terror,   in the ABC News/Washington Post poll  to a commanding 6 point lead in this latest Bloomberg poll. 

Truth and Consequence: With Obama's Libyan cover-up, we are looking at an impeachable offence, unless, of course, doing nothing to protect your diplomatic corp is no longer an impeachable offence. One thing for sure, it would be if we had a Republican President.

That was then (the Truth):

The Obama administration has confirmed that it knew within 24 hours that U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens had been killed in a pre-planned terrorist attack and not by crazed protestors enraged by an anti-Islam film.  As the Administration stages its cover-up and in the shadow of an intelligence “admission” that the White House did not know, keep the timeline in mind.
“They”  want you to forget the above report fact. What this means  is this,  on the Sunday Susan Rice was lying her proverbial off,  we have the White House confession that they did know the truth.  This story was reported in the DailyMail.
This is now (the Lie):

“In the immediate aftermath (of the assault), there was information that led us to assess that the attack began spontaneously following protests earlier that day at our embassy in Cairo,” spokesman Sean Turner said in the statement. “We provided that initial assessment to executive branch officials and members of Congress, who used that information to discuss the attack publicly.”
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which coordinates and sets policies for the 16 other U.S. intelligence agencies, is led by retired Air Force Gen. James Clapper, who was appointed by President Barack Obama in August 2010.
U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other Americans died in the assault staged by scores of assault rifle- and rocket-propelled grenade-toting assailants on the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States.
Republicans, including presidential candidate Mitt Romney, have accused the administration of misleading the country about the nature of the attack to protect Obama’s campaign claim that his policies have hurt al Qaida’s ability to launch attacks and eased anti-U.S. hatred in the Muslim world.

Keep both stories in mind,  because they do not work together.  

Update:  another "duplicitous" and self serving statement was made by Brad Woodhouse,  chairman of DNC communications,  told Fox News on Saturday morning (9/29/12) that Obama called the Libyan incidence a terror related event on "day one."  

Two comments:  this is a lie and no one can find such a quote,  but,  allowing for it to be true,  how in the world does that solve the PR problem Obama has in sending Susan Rice out,  five days after the fact,  denying over and over again,  that this was a terror related attack?  If the White House is admitting that it knew the truth,  as Woodhouse claims and the Daily Mail confirms,  why is this not all about "cover-up."   

Rasmussen called the elections in 2008 and 2010. How does Scott parse this election cycle, to date?

<<<< Obama up,  nationally,  47/46.  Romney/Obama are tied 46/46 in the 12 Swing States.  Hang in there.  The media is trying to suppress the conservative vote.  They have played this card in every election I have witnessed and they are doing it now.  

With the partisan media going nuts with one poll after another using 2008 exit polling models,  Obama is winning this election as he pulls ahead of Romney.    Nationally,  Romney trails H Obama by 4 and 5 points and holds a 6 to 7 point lead in the swing states. 

The hapless Fox News poll is no different.  Shep Smith,  a “news caster” on that network,  believes the true test for a polling concern such as Fox,  is found in the fact that it agrees with the partisan media  --  ABC,  USAToday, CBS,  NBC,  the Washington Post and the like. 

The most accurate poll in the country is Rasmussen.  If you are frustrated with rash of negative polling news for Romney,  don’t be. 

Rasmussen is biased to the Right by 4 points because he believes the Right has that much of an edge when it comes to turn-out/voter enthusiasm and I agree. 

Jesse Jackson’s daughter,  now a Democrat consultant on Fox News,  earlier this week,  mentioned the decreased level of voter enthusiasm anticipated for this election cycle.  She stated that it would be 10 points down from the 2008 record numbers.  “10%”  equals approximately  13 million votes  -  of which,  70% were Obama voters.  That translates into 9 million Obama voters staying home,  this time around.   The 9 million?  That was Obama’s margin of victory in the first election.   

Warren, practicing law without a license!! Now, you know why I refer to her by her Indian name, Ms Sitting full of Bull.

William A. Jacobson / Le·gal In·sur·rec· tion: 
Elizabeth Warren 2002 - Working on at least 10 private legal matters

Actually,  you should read this article.   Warren,  was not licensed as a lawyer while working on these cases.  So,  now what is Ms Sitting full of Bull going to say ???!!!   Indeed,  she is in serious trouble.  Read the article,  please. 

The "47%" thingy has been around so long, now, that folks have come to agree with the Governor.

Nate Silver / FiveThirtyEight:
Sept. 27: The Impact of the ‘47 Percent’  —  After a secretly-recorded videotape was released on Sept. 17, showing Mitt Romney making unflattering comments about the “47 percent” of Americans whom he said had become dependent on government benefits, I suggested on Twitter that the political impact …

Poor old Nate,  he still thinks this is news.  He missed the Gallup memo telling us that 63% of the population agrees or some what agrees with Romney.  

MSNBC is afraid to debate on principle so they turn - once again - to doctoring up their video news.

 Greg Hengler / Townhall.com:
MSNBC Caught Doctoring Clip From Romney/Ryan Rally … This breaking story comes straight from The Blaze.  —  A clip from a recent Romney/Ryan rally has recently been played over and over at MSNBC highlighting what appears to be an embarrassing moment on the campaign trail for Governor Romney.
Only two outlets picked up this story.  If this had been Fox News,  thepick-up would have numbered in the three dozen or more:   Midknight Review,  The Blaze,  The PJ Tatler and NewsBusters.org blogs

Here is some really bad news for Obama: Rural Whites would chose The Midget Maniac over H Obama.

Fars News Agency:
Gallup Poll: Rural Whites Prefer Ahmadinejad to Obama  —  TEHRAN (FNA)- According to the results of a Gallup poll released Monday, the overwhelming majority of rural white Americans said they would rather vote for Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad than US President Barack Obama.

Obama's numbers just before the mid-term disaster were the same, nominally speaking, as today.

If you all want to pretend that you know the outcome of the advancing election by looking at polls,  go ahead and pretend. 

What we have here (below), is a comparison of Rasmussen a month before the November mid-terms in 2010 and where he is,  today.  Make no mistake,  both elections were and are about him. 

Be encouraged and stop listening to Fox’s Shep Smith.  He does not do his homework and arrogance,  coming from a know-it-all, is most frustrating.

Harsh words from Jay Leno the 44 sec video.

"A new survey out today shows how much time we waste every day in our lives. For example, we waste seven minutes in line every time we go to get coffee, 28 minutes getting through airport security, four years waiting for Obama to do something about the economy. Every year, we waste a lot. We wasted a lot of time."

Obama is clearly pathological when it comes to throwing folks under his re-election bus and people are dead because of this perversion.

<<<<<  Obama has a habit of throwing folks under the bus,  without so much as a flinch.  

A Federal court ordered by Obama or guilty of “carry his water,”  has taken action against film maker,  Nakoula Basseley Nakoula,  as Obama presses  his claim that he shares no fault in the massacre of the Libyan diplomats.  Obama is the only one in his Administration who continues to blame a 15 minute film clip,  produced last June,  by Nakoula Nakoula.  From The Smoking Gun,  we learn that the LA Sheriff’s Department,  parroting a Nazi patrol unit,  has put Nakoula under arrest.  He is being held with without bail.  

“Citing Nakoula’s ‘lengthy pattern of deception,’ a federal magistrate this afternoon ordered him held without bond for alleged probation violations, including making false statements to his probation officer and using aliases. The judge rejected a plea from Nakoula’s lawyer, who argued that the convicted felon’s life would be in danger at an L.A. lockup due to the facility's large population of Muslim inmates. Nakoula will remain in custody in advance of a probation revocation hearing, the date for which has yet to be scheduled.]
Investigators have not yet provided details about how Nakoula allegedly violated probation, but it seems clear that his involvement in the ‘Innocence of Muslim’ production is central to the government's new charge."    

Anyone with an ounce of sense,  knows that this prosecution is all about Hussein Obama looking for a scapegoat,  even when the argument he is using has been thoroughly debunked.  

Hussein’s willingness to throw anyone “under the bus” if it advances his personal cause,  is the most disturbing of all that is wrong with his Administration.  This Chicago gangland trait was first evidenced when he billed his grandmother,  his white grandmother,  as an unintentional racist during 2008 campaign.  

Brother George, Wright and BB
He has persistently ignored the plight of his own brother,  in Kenya,  and his aunt,  who was living in Chicago on a phony visa of some sort.  His pastor, Jeremiah Wright,  was summarily rejected by Obama,  when the heat resulting from his allegiance to the hate mongering preacher became more of an election issue than Obama wanted to pursue.  He has dumped on Netanyahu time and time again.  

Jamie Zapata and so many others - all "under the bus"
Jamie Zapata,  a customs enforcement agent,  was murdered by the Cartel,  in Mexico,  with guns sold to the Cartel  via the Administration’s Fast and Furious scam.  Whether you agree with my "scam" assessment or not,  you cannot argue the fact that Zapata was promptly ignored,  his death nothing but a “bump on the road”  for the Despicables running our government.  You do not recognize his name precisely because he was “thrown under the bus,”  just as was Brian Terry, Sean Smith (killed in Libya – his e-mail messages ignored by this government), and  the two Navy Seals murdered in the same action as the Ambassador (does anyone know their names??).  These  two men, on separate “civilian” assignments in Libya, were  initially used by Hussein Obama to picture a [faux] security force guarding Ambassador Stevens.  Rather than giving these two the honor they deserved,  Obama immediately decided to get mileage out of the fact that they were retired Seals and pretended that they were part of an embassy security force.  The fact that there was no security force at the embassy is proof of my point  --  and H Obama’s shameless willingness to use these men,  even in death,  to advance his own,  self-centered,  agenda gives proof to all,  of the type of person with whom we are dealing.  

Ambassador Stevens - yes,  "under the bus" 
Most obvious of all,  is the fact that Ambassador Stevens was thrown under the bus,  as well.  We now know that he was frightened in the fact that he was on an alQaeda hit list and was  concerned about the rising tide of jihad in Lybya.  In the effort to sweep this under the carpet,  the Administration deserted the Ambassador,  even in the aftermath of his death. 

The film was right on!!
As to the persecution of the film maker,  no one has yet argued against the tenets of the film,  itself.  Not only was the film's producer expressing his free speech rights,  but he was more than correct in his criticism.  Islam is a baseless religion,  made up in the 7th century by a man who hated the Jews and Christians of his day. Now,  the fact that I believe this,  does not make it a fact,  of course.  But I BELIEVE IT TO BE TRUE and,  in the United States of American,  I have the right to make my case,  even when others, who disagree,  threaten to go on a murder spree.

If you disagree in my assessment of Islam,  certainly you must admit that Islam has been co-opted by murderers and perverts and is fast becoming a international force that can no longer be ignored,  a force that opposes women's rights,  free speech and free religious expression  --  not to mention the fact that Muslim Jihaists are murderers and perverts of the first order, as evidenced in the Libyan raped of our Ambassador and the murder of the four diplomats.  

In either case,  the film maker was more than justified in giving us warning.  

What Nazism is really about
In the place of this vanishing liberty (free speech is,  sadly,  under attack by leaders within the Democrat Party),  we have a form of socialism called “Nazism.”  Such is a socialist effort that uses force and the screams “of the greater good”  to capture a nation,  and enslave its people. 

Think about all this on November 6.  

Nate Silver believes a partisan poll is "bad news" for Romney. Me? I believe partisan polling results are expected, and not news at all.

Nate Silver / FiveThirtyEight:
Sept. 26: Could 2012 Be Like 2008?  —  There's no point in putting it gently: Mitt Romney had one of his worst polling days of the year on Wednesday.  —  It began with a series of polls from The New York Times, CBS News and Quinnipiac University, released early Wednesday morning . . . . . . . 
Outlets picking up this storyline include:   The Atlantic OnlineThe FixAMERICAblogDonklephantNew York Timesand Booman Tribune
First of all,  the actual “name” of this poll is “Quinnipiac University/CBS News/New York Times Swing State poll”  and can be found,  here.  Understand that the first order of the day,  when it comes to analyzing polling information, is to determine the degree of bias.   You begin with those who commissioned the poll.  In this  case,  it was CBS and The New York Times.  They commissioned the poll and issued directives as to the specific information requested.  No doubt Quinnipiac formulated the actual question(s) to meet its standards.   CBS and the Times are fully Leftist, One World,  socialist entities.  Their polling mandates support this cause in nearly every case.

Secondly,  if the poll does not indicate the Democrat/GOP split,  and this poll does not,  you can turn to to any internal polling information containing comparative favorability ratings,  if listed.  This poll compares the favorability of the GOP against the Democrat.  Clearly,  this is a Left leaning survey,  with a strong bias against the GOP.  

A Left Leaning bias is clearly demonstrated in the following three categories.

1.  GOP favorability :
                     FL     OH     PA
Favorable            38%    37%    37%
Unfavorable          50     49     51
2. Democrat favorability
                     FL     OH     PA
Favorable            49%    48%    50%
Unfavorable          43     40     40

3.  Bill Clinton’s favorability rating
                     FL     OH     PA 
Favorable            68%    66%    67%
Unfavorable          28     30     27

 Now,  here is the kicker:  while this poll makes the claim that it is talking to "likely voters,"  not just "registered voters,"  close to 16% on average are less enthusiastic than in 2008.  It is my opinion,  that a high percentage of this demographic will not vote in 2012.  

Enthusiasm for this election cycle:
        LIKELY VOTERS...
                     FL     OH     PA 
More                 47%    35%    32%
Less                 14     17     18
About the same       39     48     50
DK/NA                 -      1      -

Side bar:  
99% of the people interviewed had a government issued picture ID.  So how difficult is this and why has not the Congressional Black Caucus not been called out for its lies in this regard.
