Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Poll Position edition

Well, its now one day until the Election, and the Poll threads have been exploding over at Freeperville.

I have my own prediction – I’m taking a week off posting, unless Schadenfreude dictates otherwise.

Let’s suit up and spin that airlock door, shall we?

In reverse order from oldest to newest –Galluping along!

Gallup Tracking: O-50/R-44

7 day tracking: O – 50/R-44

3 day tracking: O – 51% approve/43% – disapprove

I don’t know what to make of this. Up until about 4 days ago, Gallup
had the race tied. There was a sudden shift to Obama on either Sat or
Sun which showed up first in the approval number. I thought it was a one
day good sample for Obama but that day rolled off the three day rolling
approval tracker today and his approval number actually went up…?

They are doctoring these polls, to make it seem that Obama is more popular than he really is.

And, they want to demoralize Republicans by claiming the Romney campaign is imploding.

goodness. EVERY POLL shows Romney losing, the one guy left his
campaign for Wall Street and even NRO is saying Romney is shifting his
strategy. Something tells me that R/R are down in their own polling.
Doesn’t mean they’ll lose but lets get real here for a minute. It
doesn’t look good at this point.

Accuracy as in they had Obama winning bigger than he did but they
were still accurate in that Obama won. I don’t really care if they’re
off a few points the fact is all these polls keep showing Obama ahead.
And how exactly with the price of gas, and food, and the cost of debt,
and the bad employment numbers along with the fact that NOBODY really
likes his Obamacare plan does this bastard get 50 to 51 percent job
approval. Romney is not running an effective campaign if this is the
case. Is he afraid to be tough?

This is a disaster.

Really? Romney is getting killed. This is looking like 2008 all
over again. The “establishment” puts up a lousy candidate and we are
left on the outside. Down ballot races are being affected too. Face

the country showed the President up by anywhere from 5 to 15 points, and
yet Romney wins by 8??? The case for Republican voter fraud couldn’t be
more obvious…disenfranchisement of Democrat voters at record

You can see it coming…an obvious set-up.

Face it. We’re squabbling over a few points. Another Freeper made a
good point. With all the mess all over the world, Romney should be up by
5 at least. Gas and food at record highs. Our embassies being overrun.

over. Shame on Romney for such as sorry ass campaign.

Rasmussen: Obama 271, Romney 267 OCT 5, 2012 • BY JEFFREY H. ANDERSON

month and one day before the most important presidential election in
the past quarter of a century and perhaps in the past century and a
quarter, Rasmussen Reports shows the race being about as even as it
could possibly be. At this point, Rasmussen’s state-by-state polling
shows that President Obama would win by the tally of 271 electoral votes
to 267 for Mitt Romney.

All of Rasmussen’s polls in the nine key
swing states have been taken in the past three weeks, although the
polls have been taken at different times during that stretch. In these
nine key swing states, Rasmussen’s polling shows Romney leading in
Virginia (by 1 percentage point), Florida (by 2 points), Colorado (by 2
points), Iowa (by 3 points), and New Hampshire (by 3 points).
Rasmussen’s polling shows Obama leading in Ohio (by 1 point), Nevada (by
2 points), Wisconsin (by 3 points), and Pennsylvania (by 12 points).

and Obama has another surprisingly bad

Video: Donald Trump Promises Bombshell on Obama

Billionaire Donald Trump said on Fox News that he will deliver a
bombshell on President Barack Obama on Wednesday, but he refused to
reveal details. He assured viewers the news could change the outcome of
the presidential election.

Trump has endorsed Mitt Romney after
having considered running for president, and he has been one of the most
vocal Americans doubting that President Obama was born in the United
States, a condition for being president.

The real estate magnate
phoned in the news to “Fox and Friends” and said he has “something very,
very big concerning the president of the United States. It’s going to
be very big. I know one thing; you will cover it in a big fashion.”

Trump wrote on Twitter, “Stay tuned for my big Obama announcement,” and then sent another tweet, “Just wait and see!”

“It’s very big. Bigger than anybody would know.”

Fox asked Trump if the news is personal or if it reflects his capacity to govern, and he answered, “It’s all in one.”

said he will make his announcement around noon Wednesday, and American
media undoubtedly will be on edge, not to mention Obama’s campaign team.


I hope it’s the birth certificate and something extra. Just the birth certificate can get pooh-poohed.

Donald Trump to reveal
‘divorce papers of Michelle

Posted on Tuesday, October 23, 2012 4:51:44 PM by Nachum

Donald Trump is to claim that he has unearthed divorce papers of
Michelle Obama and the President, according to a respected financial
pundit with links to the tycoon. It is alleged that the eccentric real
estate mogul will claim that the documents show the First Lady and the
President were at one point in their two decades of marriage seriously
considering splitting up. Trump set the hare running on Monday by
claiming that he was set to make an announcement on Wednesday that would
be ‘bordering on gigantic’ and that it would ‘possibly’ change the
Presidential race.

I wonder if the cause filed by Michelle was that she found out that

That might get interesting if this is the case. The irony would be
delicious indeed since this is how he won his election to the Illinois
Senate to begin with.He had his operatives reveal sealed divorce
documents of his rival’s ex-wife

Total guess, but based on the ridiculousness of Trumps message —
even for him, the Romney camp pulled him back and Trump had to do
something at noon. I doubt this was his original intention
, but whatever
Trump had would likely have backfired. This won’t even go noticed

He’s got the goods on Obama’s foreign student status and he’s betting $5 million that Obama won’t – can’t – release his records.

There is absolutely no evidence at all, anywhere, that this is true. You believe this only because you want to.

Trump has the goods, then let’s see it.Trump also claimed his
investigators were finding out all kinds of amazing stuff about the
birth certificate, yet that never panned out either.

Trump is a
clown. Period. If he sacrificed some of his own credibility to muddy up
the waters and help negate anything Allred might have had, then I give
him kudos. Unfortunately there is no reason to believe that is what
happened. Good thing Allred has nothing anyway.

GOP Volunteer Lied About Beating, Threats (Kyle Wood) ^

| october 29, 2012
| Brian Sikma

Posted on Thursday, November 01, 2012 12:27:32 PM by lowbridge

According to notes filed after a police interview Monday afternoon,
Kyle Wood, the GOP volunteer in Dane County who said he was beaten last
week for his support of Republican Congressional candidate Chad Lee,
recanted his testimony about the beating. Wood apparently indicated to
law enforcement officials that his story was fabricated or otherwise

Wood had shared information with Media Trackers subsequent
to the beating purporting to show harassing text messages sent to him
by Philip Frank, the spouse of Democratic Congressional candidate Mark
Pocan. Individuals who know Wood verified the accuracy of his claims to
Media Trackers but those claims now appear to be false. Media Trackers
believes Wood misled us and lied when questioned about the accuracy of
the information he claimed to have.

  1. Scott S. says:

    A week off posting? I’m almost certain Schadenfreude is going to dictate otherwise.
    Also, I’ve been waiting for the Republicans to start their own “Death to America” chants — I suspect Mr. Let-America-Burn is just the forefront of the new GOP trend. If America won’t love them, it won’t be long before Limbaugh starts telling his listeners to strap on a bomb vest for Al Qaeda.

  2. Razor Eddie says:

    I just love the “and this is now” polls listed in the Freeper thread.
    Talk about cherry picking…
    The preponderance of polling gives the edge to Obama, but you can always find a daily outlier showing the opposite. To the Freepers, the outlier is the signal, and the preponderance is the noise.
    How very zen of them.

  3. MapleStreet says:

    Wow. Hadn’t heard about the volunteer in Florida claiming to be beaten. Brings back memories of last election where someone claimed to have been cut with a?B? for being a repub.
    I also think of the people signing up people in Florida who were shown to be illegally discarding people trying to sign up as dems. Wonder if these are connected.
