View Diary: Daily Kos Elections Polling Wrap: Obama continues to hold modest lead as race enters October (150 comments)

  •  And that '08 poll was late October (11+ / 0-)

    It was just a week out, 58-33!  They polled again on election eve and found a credible 11-point lead; Obama won by 9.6%.

    This is an absurd outlier.

    But Obama does lead in NH, no doubt.

    •  This is the "Live Free or Die" state. (0+ / 0-)

      It's also tightly communal. Go north and there's deep poverty.

      Simple tests: who is worthy? Who measures up, for example: to the example of Mr. Lincoln?

      Romney's "47%" statements and his ignorance are settling in. My Mom was born in New Hampshire. They don't suffer fools or bullies very well.

      "There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him:

      -- Who are dependent upon government
      -- Who believe that they are victims
      -- Who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them
      -- Who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it

      That, that’s an entitlement, and the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what. . . . These are people who pay no income tax . . . my job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

      Running his hateful mouth while ignorant:

      10% = retirees on Social Security
      23% = working poor and students with part-time jobs
      7%  = working lower-middle with children
      6%  = Disabled, military disabled, vow-of-poverty religious, many of the unemployed, and the less than 2% "dependent" on welfare (mainly women with kids)

      The 47%. Allowing for a rounding process.

      - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

      When people read what Romney said -- word for word -- he will have trouble making the grade to be a successor to Mr. Lincoln.

      The Truth goes marching on.
