    Rumor has it that they polled more Democrats than Republicans and they polled something like 400 people...WOW, what a standard for excellance. Let's take that to the bank folks or should we just consider the source.

    The pollsters can get whatever results they desire. This one probably was taken inside the DNC headquarters.

    What are the racial breakdown of the poll sample? Is it 25/75 or 29/71? Makes a big diffeence!

    You right-wingers always quote the Rasmussen Poll – the Fox News statistical farce. CNN is a real poll.

    Could it be independents don't buy the snake oil "Rob-Me" Romney and "Lyin" Ryan are selling? Couls it be voters wanted to see those tax returns? Could independents think returning to the Bush economic plan is stupid?

    The President remains a big fan of Wall Street reform but can't get it past the Republicans in the Congress. Romney is against any regulation on the financial district or any environmental regulations on big oil companies.

  15. Romney/Ryan = Bought & Paid For All Along

    Independent voters aren't easy to fool. When Romney and Ryan refuse to give any specifics to their ridiculous promises they smell a rat.

  16. Sample

    hahahahahaha-Romney leads with independents by 14 points, but trails in the poll. hahahahah...the sample for this must have been DEM+10 at least. What a joke. We know what narrative CNN wants to promote. One where Obama is winning to get everyone to jump on the bandwagon.

    Even if I were out of work I'd vote for Obama. Things are not getting worse, they're slowly improving. I never understood how many people want instant gratification. It's getting better children, be patient.

    It's hilarious. One manure pile worried about the other manure pile. Take a deep whiff, and be thankful you don't live in Washington. In Washington, regardless of which way the wind blows the smell just gets worse. If the republicans get back in office, the stench may become toxic. Maybe what we have now doesn't smell like roses, but the lids back on the septic tank.
