If we look at all Rasmussen polling taken in the past month in the ten key swing states (Fla., Ohio, Va., Wis., Penn., Nev., Mich., Colo., Iowa, and N.H.) and fill in the rest of the states as they would be expected to go, the tally as of today would be as follows: 284 electoral votes for Obama, 235 for Romney. That, of course, would be enough to give Obama another four years.<quoted text>
Rassmusen poll on August 1 for the "swing states" of Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida. According to history, the results are not good for an incumbent looking to get re-elected:
FLORIDA: Romney 46 - Obama 45
OHIO: Obama 47 - Romney 45
PENNSYLVANIA: Obama 48 - Romney 44
Scott Rassmusen does this for a living and he is an independent pollster unlike the "in the tank for Obama" sources you cited. Who do we believe? I know, I know, "OMG, ROFLMAO' you have a serious comprehension problem". I hope I didn't steal the diversion you were planning to use.
