Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

PHILADELPHIA (October 11, 2012)–
In a new Philadelphia Inquirer Pennsylvania poll presented by Susquehanna Bank and published this morning, President Barack Obama leads Republican PresidentialNominee Mitt Romney by 8 points among likely voters in Pennsylvania, with 50% of voters in favor of the President and 42% in favor of Romney. The first presidential debate appears to have notsignificantly impacted poll respondents in changing their candidate preference, with data indicating a3-point decrease in Obama’s lead in the Garden State since the last Inquirer
public opinion poll waspublished in September following the national conventions. The current poll was conducted October 4through October 8 among 600 voters in Pennsylvania who are likely to cast a ballot in the November 6presidential election, with a margin of error +/- 4%

Obama: 50 percent

Romney: 42 percent

These are likely voters.

7:56 PM PT: There's a little confusion. This pollster did 2 polls(PA,NJ) The NJ poll is 51 to 40 for Obama. Remember this poll is coming out tomorrow so some may get mixed up. That's why I just gave the PA poll. :)

8:02 PM PT: Thanx 4 rec. I hope these polls help people exhale today.

8:50 PM PT: Michigan-- Obama 49 Romney 42 http://www.detroitnews.com/...

NBC/WSJ/Marist: Va:R-48 O:47     FL:O-48 R-47    OHIO: O-51 R-45

10:33 PM PT: Don't get too excited, but the internals of the Ohio poll states Obama rec'd 20 percent(abt 1.2 mil) in early voting. Obama crushed Romney in early voting, if this is true it will be hard for Romney to win Ohio. People are discussing this on Twitter now. Stay focused and engaged.
