    The biggest clue that Obama is in trouble is when his top aides told reporters to disregard negative polling data. It's only going to get worse for the liberals between now and Nov. 6th so they should do their celebrating now. Romney's supporters will do our celebrating on Nov. 7th.

    I can't believe the Deseret News prints stuff like this without looking at some other projections for crying out loud. It's like they live in a bubble, and if it comes off the wire it must be news! Look at the Weekly Standard on line and they have projection from bipartisan polling outfit under the Blog section.

    Just remember, "DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN!"

    The AP has done all it can along with other liberal media to promote Obama and a narrative that his re-election is inevitable. THis is part of that narrative.

    I don't believe it. Part of last-minute attempt to discourage Romney supporters. Romney is going to win, and it won't be all that close after all.

    Re" WHAT NOW? Saint George, UT

    There are a total of 538 electoral votes and it takes 270 votes to win. Sorry to burst your bubble but Obama is going to fall short. He's toast. Probably whey they are starting to tell the polls don't count.

    Which Romney should win the popular vote by at least a 60% to 40% margin.

    500 electoral votes at a minimum.

    3.7% unemployment rate by 4/15/13 (reported by hannity).

    24,000,000 new jobs by 4/15/13 (reported by hannity).

    All new jobs will be $50,000 or higher. (reported by Which Romney)

    The ACA will be repealed 1/21/13 (reported by Which Romney).

    All illegals will self-deport by 1/21/13 ( reported by Which Romney).

    China will forgive all US debt by 1/21/13 (reported by Which Romney).

    Which Romney will COMPROMISE with Democrats.

    Which Romney will become the darling of the Democrats.

    Which Romney is the darling of the republicon party.

    Which Romney will not allow his campaign/reign to be influenced by fact-checkers.

    If it's good enough for Which Romney, it's good enough for me.

    All the real data came from from hannity, Which Romney and other republicon approved sources.

    Thank you.

    Yet another attempt by AP to attempt to influence the race. Where is the data so we can see if we agree with the analysis? Where is the link?

    Rasmussen Reports has been one of the most accurate polls in the last few elections. What does Rasmussen have to say? Romeny is now ahead in Ohio.


    He's tied in Wisconsin.

    Wisconsin went from likely Obama before the debates to now being a complete toss-up. Romney's erased Obama's lead among women. Given Romney's current leads in Colorado, New Hampshire, Virginia, and Florida, all he has to do is win 1 of those 2 states. But Obama has to win both. Who is poised to eke out the victory?

    Get the real data at Rasmussen Reports.
