Today’s (9/28) Polls

Today is the forty-ninth day that the Romney-Ryan ticket has been hanging over this country like a sword of Damocles. Thirty-nine days are left until the election, five until the first presidential debate, and four until the first day of the two-day student referendum on renaming the University of Florida’s student union after integration hero Virgil Hawkins.

The annual Pride Parade and Festival are taking place tomorrow in downtown Gainesville. The parade  starts in the 700 block of  West University Avenue (Ayers Medical Plaza, Wild Iris Books) at noon and ends at the Downtown Plaza, where the festival starts at 1:00 P.M.  National Coming Out Day is October 11.

Hispanic Heritage Month, which started September 15 and ends October 15, continues. We should celebrate it by ever more fervently opposing SB 1070 and other anti-immigration laws. With thoughts of making this country more welcoming, here are today’s presidential tracking polls:


  • Race

Rasmussen  lv3d: Obama 47%(48%*), Romney 46%(48%*), some other candidate 3%

Gallup          rv7d : Obama 50%           ,  Romney 44%


  • Presidential Approval

Rasmussen  lv3d: Approve 48% (28%**), Disapprove 51% (43%**)

Gallup           rv3d: Approve 50%                , Disapprove 45%

lv = likely voters, rv = registered voters, 3d = 3-day, 7d = 7-day

* = with leaners added, ** = strong
