From the transcript:
RUSH: There are two polls out now that have Romney 50, Obama 46 with likely voters. Two polls. The latest Gallup is just out: Romney is at the magic 50% level with likely voters over Obama at 46%. It's a seven-day rolling average. These clowns at Public Policy Polling, the liberal outfit in North Carolina, also have it at Romney 50-46.That's OK, in case you haven't seen them, I think these two diaries nailed Rush at least as hard:
Public Policy Polling does this poll for the Daily Kos, that bedwetting bunch of website Democrat base people. So there's two polls at 50-46. You just better prepare yourself. The media's already got the story written: "Obama, comeback kid! Won big!" No matter what happens. Romney is gonna have to literally wipe the floor with Obama for him to be declared the winner of this thing tonight.
But Romney has all these stats I just mentioned. You want me to run through this again? I'd rather take some phone calls. Twenty-three million unemployed, 5% loss median family income, 47 million food stamps, one in six in poverty, and the unemployment rate really is 15%. There's no recovery; there's no progress. We're in the middle of a disaster, created and architected by Barack Obama. He asked for this economy. He ran for president. He wanted it.
He has run it into the ground! [emphasis added]

Big Trouble in Limbaugh Land - October 16, 2012
|Rush Limbaugh's talk radio career is in a slow downward spiral in part because of the activism of consumers, volunteers, and activists who seek to hold Rush accountable for his hate speech. One very active group in this cause is Flush Rush on Facebook. Flush Rush and other, similar groups use the StopRush Database to inform advertisers about where their ads are appearing.
