    These poll number are unrealistic and biased towards Obama.
    There are alot of polls coming out showing Obama with a slight lead and it seems like all Republicans are saying it's not true like Peter here. If Republicans want to win they need to admit they are down slightly so they can start fighting to make that ground up. If your down by 3 points in the fourth quarter you need a touchdown to win so running the clock out does not make sense.

    How can anyone take Mr.Romney serious? He is not in no way presidential material.
    People with lighter skin tones may want to throw this country away simply because of the skin tone
    Of the President. But I say we fight. Dig in and fight for this land. What does it matter
    What skin tones we have. This is our Home. If we don't continue on the path President Obama has placed before us
    We will return to our past failures.

    No way these polls are right I live in Pennsylvania and travel to Virginia coal miners in Pa. eather will not vote or vote Romney because of obama war on coal the illegal voteing will not happen because of voter ID the Pa voter will not stand fo obama care even among blacks , obama may get part of that 47 % but not all .Virginia voters need the Navy yard and ship yards to make a good economy and whits and blacks will vote Romney to save jobs . only obamas wife goes there now Va. is lost for obama as well as Florida bill clinton went home after one vsit the people remember NAFTA and ross Perots Sucking sound of jobs going away. these states don't blame Romney they blame obama and rightly so all I can say for sure is CNN is going to look bad on election night.

      It is not just CNN.....it is every other polling agency in the U.S. , with the possible exception of Rasmussen and Scott Rasmussen is a paid Fox contributor, who is posting false polls so the GOP hopefuls do not lose hope.

    Between the Republicans blocking all attempts to create jobs (i.e., Jobs Act), sending jobs overseas,not hiring to prove that Obama is bad, and working against the Middle Class at every turn, it is a wonder that we have any workers in America. Add that to the economy that the Bushes created with their phony wars and tax cuts for those who didn't need it, most voters think Obama is doing an amazing job!

    People can stay on unemployment for a couple years. What would the unemployment rate be if you used the old standard of six months or a year. As would have been used for every other President. Remember unemployment only counts if you are receiving benefits.
