    President Obama has increased his lead to six-points in the just released NBC/WSJ poll.

    That's double the slim three point lead President Obama had last month.

    As voters get to know the aloof and unlikable Romney (and his recycled Bush policies) - they like him (and his policies) less and less.

    The RCP polling average puts Wisconsin from swing state back into the Obama column.

    Sure, it's early, but looks like the Scott Walker Effect was only temporary.

    That's exciting. I think this is only the beginning of the momentum he will build leading up to the election.icon_biggrin.gif

    That is, unless you consider the source --- MSNBC/NBC/WSJ polls, like ALL polls, should be taken with a grain of salt

    CJ - hardly worth even commenting. He takes the most extreme from RCP, RV not LV, over sampling Democrats. Means little.

    FOX News polls usually show him ahead too.

    Well, Rasmussen is based towards Republicans, so when you add up all the polls together and average them, the Dem biased ones, the GOP biased ones, and the more neutral ones, everybody wins.

    Correction. Rasmussen is not biased towards Republicans. They use LV whereas others use RV. RV tends to oversample Democrats, hence the disparity.

    Rasmussen is heavily biased towards Republicans and has consistently been wrong in that direction for years.
