Daily Kos Poll Has Romney Leading Obama by 2

Yup, lots of little Kossacks are gonna’ need to be put on suicide watch when they wake up this morning and discover that even their favorite resource for Lefturd propaganda has to admit that Romney is kicking Obama’s butt:

Daily Kos/SEIU State of the Nation poll: Romney takes the lead in post-debate period

Public Policy Polling for Daily Kos & SEIU. 10/4-7. Likely voters. MoE ±2.72% (9/27-30 results)

The candidates for President are Democrat Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney. If the election was today, who would you vote for?
Obama 47 (49)
Romney 49 (45)

That’s a pretty disastrous six-point net swing in just a week, and the first time we’ve ever had Romney in the lead. It is inline with all other national polling showing Romney making gains in the wake of his debate performance last week.


Several other polls, Pew chief among them, saw a big increase in the number of respondents self-identifying as Republicans—a sign of increased intensity on that side of the aisle. Our poll confirms that intensity boost. Last week, 65 percent of conservatives were “very excited” about voting this year. This week, it’s 74 percent. That’s a significant shift. Liberals also gained, but only marginally so, from 68 to 70 percent.

Clearly, none of this is irreversible, and it’ll bear watching the daily trackers to see if Romney continues to fade or not. And obviously, next week’s numbers will further clarify the shape of the race.

Regardless, it shows that Obama’s debate performance was an epic blunder. Romney gave his partisans a reason to get excited about him and they’ve responded. It should come as no surprise that people like to fight for people who are fighting for them.

  1. Big Frank Says:

    Regardless of these ‘polls’ the DemocRATS are known to be divisive, devious, and downright underhanded when it looks like a win for the other party. The illegal alien (through those ‘motor voter’ laws,) dear departed, the vacant lot, the false address, and the ‘vote early and vote often’ concept are embraced by the party bosses. The Dems are using the’ Crook’ County IL voting method nation wide.

    • Yup. Hence, all the activist judges across the nation shooting down voter I.D. laws right before the elections.

      Here in Missouri, we passed a voter I.D. law in 2006. Of course, the activist judges struck it down as unconstitutional under the state constitution. Then, lawmakers tried again and Gov. Nixon (D) vetoed that one in June of 2011. This time around, we tried to get it put on the ballot as an amendment to the state constitution. Naturally, the judges and DemonRats tactically delayed it so that it won’t see the ballot box until AFTER the Nov. 2012 elections!

      However, the interesting thing is that if you go to the official Missouri State website, you’ll soon discover that I.D. of some sort is required!:


      Very strange, indeed!

      Anyway, sure it’s gonna’ be tough, but we can—and will—win!
