    Interesting poll. Obama / Biden is still on top in Florida and North Carolina despite all the negative ads from team Romney.

    Romney / Ryan is out of touch with Americans and we will see this on Nov. 6th. They have these extreme views and are now trying to etch-a-sketch their way to the middle to fool the American voters. We are smaller than this Robme and Lying Ryan.

    I wouldn't vote for Obama if he hid his money in Swiss, Cayman Island and Bermuda and then expect taxpayers to pay for his Secret Service protection while he's running for President. Romney should get protection from the people who protect his money in offshore accounts. B.S., are Americans just stuck on stupid, Romney thinks so.

    As a media/marketing research professional for 35 years, including a stint at the CBS Election Unit, I am embarrassed for and a bit ashamed of CNN polling. The switch to Likely Voters, which is very tricky (and had Bush wining by 5% ahead of Gore, oops!), is ignoring the more reliable Registered voter data. Obama is WAY ahead in Florida, and slightly ahead in NC among the larger sample of registered voters. THAT is what had been, and should be reported for now. Making uncertain adjustments on samples is dangerous and dumb – OR report fully on both counts. Yesterday, the national CNN poll reduced a 9 point expanding Obama lead (above the last month) down to 2 points among Likely Voters, virtually impossible statistically. PLEASE be more careful.

    I wonder how the shrewd businessman can lead Nation. At least my personal experience say " Businessman is always place their profit and Business first "

    @Davidm923 I am not sure how you can draw the conclusion that somehow CNN/ORC is understating President Obama's alleged lead, because CNN/ORC never releases to the general public information related to how many more registered Democrats they are surveying as opposed to registered Republicans. I am sure they have heavily skewed the sample in favor of Democrats (which you have to do to get Obama to 50 percent), well above the level of support Obama enjoyed in 2008. Truth be told, if they had the courage to release this information we'd probably all be laughing right now about their polling sample being heavily biased towards Obama (as their news organization as a whole is).

    If every citizen voted, there would be no Republican party. The forty percent of people who don't vote prefer Democratic positions over Republican positions by nearly two to one. Billionaires will now spend lots of money thanks to a dishonorable supreme count decision to make it legal to buy elections. If that fails, Republican governors will do what they can to deny tens of thousands of Democrats the right to vote. But all Obama needs to do to win is to get the vote out. His positions protect the middle class, the elderly, and the unemployed. Romney plan will fundamentally destroy the guarantee of health care coverage for future seniors, reduce the value of social security benefits for future retirees, and cause millions of people to lose their home. But those tax shelters and off-shores captives? Safe!
