This is the seventeenth reminder to register to vote for the general election, albeit an hour late. The whole state was rained on by Isaac yesterdy, but the RNC down in Tampa should be unhindered when it opens later today. That clownfest should be all the proof necessary of the need to vote, so please call/visit your local Supervisor of Elections’ office. Alternately, you can try an online app. One is posted in the upper right-hand corner of this blog. Your vote is important; the 1960 presidential election came down to one vote per precinct, the 2000’contest was within the counting machines’ margin of error in

Today’s (8/26) Polls

Today is the sixteenth day of the Ryan candidacy. The GOP covention has been postponed from tomorrow to Tuesday on account of Hurricane Issac, which continues to veer west away from the entire state. Earlier in the evening I watched conservative commentators Mary Matalin and George Will spew incredible nonsense on ABC. The further this campaign progresses ( in time only, of course) the more the Republicans’ rhetoric is divorced from reality.While we wonder what Universe they are living in, here are today’s presidential tracking polls:

  • Race

Rasmussen: Obama 47%, Romney 45%, some other candidate 3% (likely voters)(3-day)

Gallup         : Obama 46%, Romney 46% (registered voters)(7-day)

 

  • Swing State Race (Colorado,Florida,Iowa,Michigan,Nevada,New Hampshire,North Carolina, Ohio,Pennsylvania,Virginia,Wisconsin)

Rasmussen: Obama 46%, Romney 45%, some other candidate 4% (likely voters)(7-day)

 

  • Presidential Approval

Rasmussen: Approve 49%, Disapprove 50% (likely voters)(3-day)

Gallup         : Approve 45%, Disapprove 49% (registered voters)(3-day)

 

The president has moved further ahead and his approval is up in Rasmussen, but his approval is down down in Gallup. This indicates that turnout is trending in his favor. Romney’s “birther” joke has probably motivated more liberals and democrats to vote.

VOTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is the sixth reminder to register to vote for the general election if you have not done so already. Please call and/or visit your local supervisor of elections office. Alternately yovCan use an online app. (the League of Women Voters has just come out with a new version of their site Vote411.com) One is posted in the upper right-hand corner of this blog. This year the GOP has the most extreme platform in history, so get out there and register and vote! It  can be more important than you realize. Remember, the 196o presidential election came down to one vote per precinct and the 2000 contest was within the margin of error of the counting machines in Florida.

VOTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is the fifteenth reminder to register to vote. The Republican Party has become so extreme this year that more is at stake in this election than ever before, so get out there and register and vote! Visit and/or call your local Supervisor of  Elections’ office. Alternately, you can use an online app. One is posted in the upper right-hand corner of this blog. Once again, remember than the 1960 presidential election came down to less than one vote per precinct and the 2000 contest was even closer in Florida, within the margin of error of the counting machines.

Today’s (8/24) Polls

This is the fourteenth day of the menacing Ryan candidacy. The  Republican National Convention, seemingly embedded in a time warp, is three days away. With the most conservative platform ever and seven “birther” speakers, the GOP is still pandering to the fringe and fit for cant. It is no small wonder that the Romney/Ryan ticket is getting 0% of the African-American vote. They do not deserve any Hispanic vote either. As the beginning of the right-wing fantasy festival approaches, here are today’s presidential tracking polls:

 

  • Race

Rasmussen: Romney 46%, Obama 45%, some other candidate 4% (likely voters)(3-day)

Gallup         : Romney 46%, Obama 46% (registered voters)(7-day)

 

  • Presidential Approval

Rasmussen: Approve 48%, Disapprove 51% (likely voters)(3-day)

Gallup         : Approve 47%, Disapprove 47% (registered voters)(3-day)

 

This race is totally static; practically no change has occurred in these polls since yesterday. The question is whether the RNC can change them. A coalition of progressive groups is planning to protest outside the convention. Hopefully they can have an impact.

VOTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is the fourteenth reminder to register to vote before the general election. Please visit and/or call your local Supervise of Elections’ offices. Alternatively, you can use an online app. One is posted on the upper right-hand corner of this blog. We have the most reason to vote this year that we have ever had. The Republican Party has adopted the most conservative platform ever. This is disturbing. So get out there and register and vote. Your vote counts. Remember, once again, that the 1960 presidential election was decided by one vote per district and the 2000 contest by much less than that, a margin that was actually below the margin of error of the counting machines.

Today’s (8/23) Polls

This is the thirteenth day of the Ryan candidacy. He is still trying to deceive people about himself. The Medicare Eliminator co-sponsored  a bill with the infamous Akin, including one to narrow the definition of rape, yet now he is trying to make us believe that he believes “rape is rape”. This character would try to sell freezers to Inuit (Eskimos) if it served his purpose! In the midst of intense incredulity, here are today’s presidential tracking polls:

  • Race

Rasmussen:  Obama 45%, Romney 46%, some other candidate 5% (likely voters)(3-day)

Gallup         :  Obama 46%, Romney 46% (registered voters)(7-day)

  • Presidential Approval

Rasmussen:  Approve 48%, Disapprove 51% (likely voters)(3-day)

Gallup         :  Approve 47%, Disapprove 47% (registered voters)(3-day)

 

Wow! Could this contest be any tighter? Also, it looks like we are back to the difference between the two polls’ approval measures being in the disapprove column. Only four days left until we have to endure the RNC.  Then comes the bearable DNC over the next week. Fortunately, the best is saved for last.
