New poll shows Romney ahead in … Pennsylvania? Update: GOP closing early voter gap in Ohio; Update: Romney leads by four in Susquehanna poll of PA

posted at 5:19 pm on October 18, 2012 by Allahpundit

Is it worth writing about a poll that appeared suddenly on Twitter, rocked the world of every last conservative who saw it, then was quickly and mysteriously deleted by the pollster? What if the DNC’s communications director screencapped it and started whining about it before he’d even seen the crosstabs? Let’s put it this way: There may or may not be a poll coming soon from Susquehanna showing Romney up 49/45 on The One in the Democratic stronghold of Pennsylvania. Maybe it won’t be published. Maybe it was yanked back because they spotted a flaw in the data at the last second. If it is published, maybe Jay Cost is right that skepticism is in order; Susquehanna’s numbers do tend to tilt Republican according to Sean Trende, although Guy Benson had a nice post about the firm’s track record a week ago. Needless to say, if Romney really does have a lead in Pennsylvania, then I’m thinking the hull has been breached on the good ship Hopenchange and there’s no patching it. We’ll need multiple polls from the state to know if there’s been any tidal shift, but keep an eye out for Susquehanna. If it’s legit, it’s a big one.

Since I can’t give you that right now, how about a pair of new polls showing Romney ahead in … Ohio and Colorado (Update: Old news. See below.):

Romney takes 48 percent support in Ohio, edging President Obama at 47, in the new poll conducted by American Research Group (ARG). It’s the latest survey to show Romney erasing the gender gap. He now trails Obama only 48 to 45 among female voters in the Buckeye State…

And in Colorado, likely voters went for Romney 50 to 46 over Obama, in ARG’s poll. Romney soundly outpaced Obama among female voters in the state, taking 51 percent support against Obama at 45…

Ohio and Colorado are two of the 12 states President Bush won in 2004 that Obama took in 2008. These 12 battleground states will be critical in determining the outcome of the 2012 election.

Go back to the electoral vote map at RCP that I linked in the last post. If it’s true that Florida is drifting away from the Democrats and Romney comes through in Ohio and Colorado, then he’s at 262 with a slew of swing states available to put him over the top. Virginia alone could do it. So could Wisconsin. And so, of course, could Pennsylvania, although if he wins PA then we’re staring at a Republican landslide, not a 270-268 win.

That’s the good news. The bad news? It seems increasingly likely that we’re going to lose as our VP a guy who thinks American servicemen are serving in Iraq and Iran. Some lean blog content days ahead next year without Joe, my friends.

Update: Turns out that Ohio/Colorado poll news from The Hill was published on October 9, not today. Drat. Note to self: Always check the dates on stories you’ve arrived at from links on Twitter. Apologies for the bad info. Obama’s bounced back a bit in Ohio since that ARG poll but there have been other polls in Colorado since then showing Romney ahead — barely. He’s up two-tenths of a point in the RCP average.

Update: Let me try to redeem this post with some real news:

Four years ago, Democrats made up about 42% of the early and absentee vote while Republicans made up 22% – a dismal 20-point deficit that contributed to Sen. John McCain’s defeat in Ohio.

Through Wednesday, however, the margin has narrowed: Democrats account for 36% of the early and absentee vote while Republicans make up for 29%.

Republicans are outperforming their voter registration in several of the state’s biggest counties…

Additionally, a Republican National Committee source told CNN that among early voters not identifying with any party, RNC modeling has tagged 30.5% as Romney supporters and 24.9% as Obama supporters.

Update: Ah, and here’s the Susquehanna mystery poll now:

Susquehanna’s automated poll or 1,376 likely voters was taken between Oct. 11 and 13, before the second presidential debate Tuesday that many saw as a comeback for Obama since his Oct. 3 showdown with Romney.

Lee said Romney has made significant gains in the all-important suburbs of Philadelphia, a ring of counties that helped push Obama to victory in 2008.

“Republicans haven’t been able to do that in 20 years,” Lee said. “Romney has made some major inroads.”

Lee said Romney also gained ground in western Pennsylvania, where socially conservative, blue-collar Democrats have turned their backs on Obama.

Note that last part. Remember at the debate when O said it’s time for a new assault-weapons ban? The NRA will make sure those western Pennsylvania centrist Democrats know all about it.

Update: One other note: This poll was commissioned by the state GOP.

Even if it’s an major outlier, that only means PA is tied.

As for OH, I knew during the first debate the pendulum was swinging.

But when I saw the crowd difference from a week prior, to after..

…that Obama couldn’t even fill Kent State indoors, turnout – 6,660. Capacity – 9,000….

…and Romney had 13,000 outdoors, in 42 degrees, in an area just 15 minutes from the campus…

…that’s a ship changing course.

PolAgnostic on October 18, 2012 at 5:33 PM

Gallup, like PPP, is a Republican-leaning polling outfit funded by the Koch-sucking Brothers. This is even more so since Obama and Axelrod had Holder sue them. Gallup is intentionally doctoring the sample by adding more African-Americans and Hispanics, which is always going to lead to a more Romney favourable result.

Karl Rove, Grover Norquist, Darth Cheney, Justice Scalia, that House ‘igga, Clarence Thomas, and Ahnta Jemima, Condi Rice, are part of a cabal that control the real forces behind the American Research Group and Susquehanna. Anyone, and I mean ANYONE, who believes that Obama isn’t winning Pennsylvania by 157 points and Oiho by 458 is a damn lunatic! I know because I had lunch with some “very popular” politicians in Wisconsin today and they are “in the know,” if you know what I mean.

CNN is more conservative than even Faux News. Candy is a complete Republican stooge and threw the ultimate lifeline to Romney. The people in the audience were all a bunch of conservative plants and asked questions written for them by the Romney campaign.

Romney is NOT leading Obama by 7 nationally…and do NOT even get me started on Rasmussen – that, that Sheldon Adelson outfit. If Ras is claiming 4 for Romney, that means Obama will win 40000+ electoral votes.

He’s NOT leading in the swing states. Romney is NOT gaining in Pennsylvania. There will NOT be a landslide in ANY bitterclinger county in America much less the overwhelming majority.

Obama IS leading in Texas, Utah, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Arkansas by more than 20 points in each state.

You people are D-E-L-U-S-I-O-N-A-L!

By the way, did you see the new poll from Kim Jong-un POLLytech University? It has Obama up by 63 points nationally with a R +74. Oh, and the Castro-Guevara-Chavez Battleground Poll of the Swing States has Obama wiping Romney’s blood off the floor with a 75 point lead and has a sample of 2/3,798/468 (D/R/I).

You wankers had better catch up! Even true cons are voting for my Dear Leader!”

PS: Media Matters is about to break a huge story! Frank Luntz is actually a NorKo op. He is using a form of MK-ULTRA to get non-sexist, racist, bigoted, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, totalitarian theocrats to become sexist, racist, bigoted, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, totalitarian theocrats so that Obama will be defeated…leaving Kim Jong-un the undisputed kewlest, hipsterest leader on the planet. So there!

Resist We Much on October 18, 2012 at 5:33 PM

Dear Lord, you know I’ve been praying to you a lot lately, but, can we have just one 1984-type election before I shuffle off my mortal coil? You know, like the one with Reagan and Mondale. Yeah, a landslide…a huge landslide.

Or at least give us Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Florida, Colorado, New Hampshire, Nevada, Wisconsin and Virginia, along with the rest of the Red and reddish states. You can give them California, New York and Illinois. Heard they don’t like God too much in those states anymore. They don’t seem to like much of anything other than taking other peoples’ money and blaming others for all their problems…just plain angry all the time. And you can give them Oregon and Washington, too…lot’s of godless folks up that way, too.

Thank you.

Actually, BO has appeared to be in a meltdown for some time, but one can only expect that as the polls shift it will weigh heavily on him.

All I can say is that if this is the case, it will be a most gratifying moment – the moment I have been living for. I want to see this POS suffer through the remaining weeks of the campaign knowing that he has already lost.

It’s nothing compared to the suffering he has inflicted on millions of Americans – as we watch him golf, party, vacation, lie about the economy, rape the taxpayers, lie about dead Americans, ignore responsibilities and whine about how hard his $400K/yr “job” is.

He deserves that much and more – much more.

Let’s have a new daily blog post that is specifically designed to mock people at MSNBC and attach videos of them crying. Like the one with Chris Matthews saying Romney violated the Constitution when he challenged Obama and told him to sit down.

This Romney surge, this preference cascade, is so powerful now that when Team Zero drops a nasty October Surprise or two — and you know they’re coming — it is just going to PISS voters off even more (like the fake employment numbers did), and the cascade is going to pick up even more steam. Irony…or poetic justice?
