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…?

And the regular jerk:

To: ILS21R still has Romney up 7.8%

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.

Ah – the mysterious “They”.
First cousin to the pernicious “Them”.
The scary Those Not Like Us that terrify and anger the Freeperati so.

To: Perdogg

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
facts we are in trouble.

The day after the elections: “The nation is stunned. Every poll in
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.
