Obama leads Romney by 13 points among women, which is identical to his victory margin over McCain among women four years ago, according to National Election Pool exit polls. Men, who split their vote between Obama (49%) and McCain (48%), are leaning slightly toward Romney today, by a 50% to 44% margin…

    Cherry pick much? Pew is part of the RCP composite that shows Obama up only 1.6 pct, with the only poll based on likely voters showing Romney up 4

    But sticking with Pew, sure it was an oversight that you did not include the trend. Maybe you skipped over the first paragraph.. icon_lol.gif

    Barack Obama's lead over Mitt Romney has narrowed from 12 points last month to a 49% to 45% advantage, with voters rating the economy and jobs as the issues that are "very important" to their vote. Some hot-button social issues, like gay marriage and birth control, rank at the bottom of the list of voter concerns.

    The latest national survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, conducted April 4-15, 2012 finds that those who say the economy and jobs will be very important to their vote divide their support almost evenly between Obama and Romney. ...

    Totally stupid remark. Even if you want to ignore the other polls, you blatantly ignored the first paragraph of the Pew results which showed a trend favoring Romney. Your reaction is typical of the histrionics we have seen from you, so no surprise.

    Oh please. Do you ever stop playing the outraged martyr? So tiresome.

    You are the one who is twisting yourself into knots over this poll. Bottom line: the poll shows Obama leading. I know you don't like it, but it's not going to change the results of the poll.

    Get over it.

    Was just noting what you left out from the poll. The very first paragraph, that's all. icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    BTW - these polls don't bother me at all. I think likely voters are more accurate. Just amusing how selective you were.

    Oh good. Seemed like you had your panties in a bunch. But good to know you were just making a simple, innocent notation replete with name-calling and dramatic bleating about histrionics and stupidity.

    So will the electorate be full of optimism about Obama being able to figuratively speaking "walk on water" like they were in 2008?



    So, will the electorate be what the GOP pretends they were in 2008? Good question.
