    Likely voter screen takes us from a +6 Obama lead to Romney +1? Haha. OK. I guess the likley voter screen is incorporating FL's effortts to purge Dem voters from the rolls? Fact is, it's tied at 48% when you include Johnson and Stein. That's bad news for Mittens. Very bad news. I have no doubt that FL's GOP administration will do what it can to help him out though.

    Oops. Looks like Obama voters in Florida ought to get out and vote afterall. Last I heard, Romney was up by 5 or so points.

    Among registered voters, Obama leads by 6 points. Among likely voters, as determined by CNN/ORC, Romney leads by one point, meaning that it is a statistical tie. Registered voters, you need to go out and vote. In 2000, only 500 or so votes separated Bush and Gore in Florida. As a result, over 4000 of our troops died in an unnecessary war in Iraq.

    We have to realize that many of those polls on Florida do not include a high amount of the spanish speaking only latinos. If they did, you can add ABOUT 5% more than what you see. Thats what all the spanish organizations are saying. Since Latinos take about 17% of Florida.

    Same thing happened to Sen. Harry Reid in Nevada. Reid was behind 4% in polls to Sharron Angle right before the election day. Then after the race, Reid won by a whopping 10%. Thats because Nevada is congested with Latinos.

    Those polls only take surveys of English speaking people only. So with the many latinos that do NOT speak english, the Latinos organization take their surveys. And they are usually 7 out of 10 for Obama.

    The national poll of latino only taken by the spanish companies, have Obama at 70-25.. With calculations, you can add about 4% to the national polls. Obama will win this.

    Sniffiit...... I totally agree! I have been looking at the results of these polls RV v LV numbers and it seems they account for MASSIVE voter apathy from Obama supporters. Not just a little like shaving off 2-3 points but 6 points some 8 or 9! What!?!? So I am really supposed to believe that 6-10% of Obama supporters are staying at home? These numbers are more in line with 2010. So after all the massive assault of racist dog whistles and putdowns the first black POTUS has taken and the way the GOP has scapegoated Hispanics comparing them to pests and dogs that black and Hispanics are staying home? Ha!!! Or young people who care about the environment or gay rights or woman's rights as well? And Liberals who may be disappointed but who still worry about the SCOTUS will stay at home? No way. Not to mention Obama has the most powerful ground operation the world has ever seen. This is insane to account for 6% off one side. We shall see. But I think come election day the polls will have major egg on their face.

    What poll are you looking at? Every Poll they are tied. And in early voting Obama is ahead with almost a 2 – 1 ratio.

    Plus Remember that those polls do not include the spanish speaking only Latinos. The spanish speaking only latino poll has Obama head by 40%. that means that Obama is probably ahead about 4-5% in the florida polls.

    I was simply being facetious by indirectly suggesting Romney had the momentum, when clearly he doesn't. Sorry my comment came out as misleading.

    Romney looks like a lying creep? Have people missed what went on in Benghazi? The Obama administration keeps on lying and trying to pass the blame!

    I have no idea who will win. Either way, we face massive problems. Looks like we will get a GOP House and Dem Senate. I will probably vote for Romney, since Obama had a shot with this Congressional mix and failed.

    Do not fall for the crap Romney and the Republicans are selling. They will lie, cheat and steal to get into the White House. The Republican idea to make things better is to do the same things that caused the problem. I am sure they would have no problem rehiring a financial advisor whose investment policies almost wiped out most Americans life savings. Basically that is what the Republicans are proposing. They are saying lets fire the guy that stabilized your investments and grow it to almost what it was prior to 2007 and let’s rehire the guy whose policies almost wiped it out. Do they think most Americans are stupid?

    Here is the real hoax. The Republican idea to make things better is to do the same things that caused the problem. Here is something to think about. Republicans would have no problem rehiring a financial advisor whose investment policies almost wiped out their life savings. Basically that is what they are proposing. Republicans are telling us to fire the guy that stabilized and grow our investments to almost what it was worth prior to 2007 and rehire the guy whose policies almost wiped it out. We have to be really stupid to listen to them and rehire a guy whose policies wiped out investment in the first place. I would hope that Americans are smarter than that.

    Here is a simple way of looking at who is best for the economy. Would you invest with a guy whose investment policies wiped out your investment portfolio or would you invest with a guy whose investment policies stabilized your investment portfolio and is currently growing your portfolio. Even Romney wouldn't invest his own money with the guy whose policies wiped out everyone’s investment and now he wants us to do it. So why would anyone even consider voting for any Republican.

    How can any Americans think that Romney/Ryan policies would be better for the Economy. The only way for anyone to think that is if they are suffering from total amnesia. Have people forgotten what happened in 2007/2008 and the years leading up to the Great Recession. It was the exact same policies that Romney is advocating now that caused the Great Recession. Are we that dumb to think that these same policies that caused the Great Recession will somehow magically make the economy better.

    I guess Romney/Ryan think we are all stupid and don’t know the truth and can’t remember the dark days of the great recession of 2007 and 2008 and the years leading up to it.

    The choice is clear. Do we want to go back to the exact same policies (Romney/Ryan current policies) that brought America (this great Nation) to its knees or do we want to continue to build on the recovery.

    Why is this poll over sampling Republicans, 33% Democrats 32% Republicans? just like CNN polls after the debates there are 7% more dems than Reps. CNN, Rasmussan ( has Romney up by 2% in Ohio today, nobody believes that) and Gallup keeping Romney in the game. On purpose or not ?

    I have 5 friends in two swing states that have been on the fence about this race. Two of them have extremely large families. They wanted to see if Mitt Romney would stop campaigning like the Preisdent due to Hurricane Sandy, but have now found out he is continuing to campaign, and only called the "Republican Governors" ............ no one else. Also he has a new ad that has nothing but lies about the auto industry in some of the swing states. That being said, my friends are no longer on the fence and they now will be voting for President Obama since Mitt Romney has now shown he does not care about the people impacted by the storm, etc. It did not help any when they saw Mitt Romney state he would get rid of FEMA.
