    bull, this is good news but I’m not going to get overly excited about it. Most candidates get a bump right after their convention. I’ll feel some what better once the poll is done after the DNC convention and two weeks after that. But I’ll never feel real comfortable until I see the sumbitch leaving with his damn luggage.

      Dave, I’m with you. No celebration. I know people are suspicious of polls too. But there are a couple of optimistic points. Slight edge may sound like hype but he has held pretty steady in polls, despite Obama’s attack machine. And their kill Ryan campaign hasn’t had much more success than the kill Romney one. I also see the CNN and MSNBC are both going to do Obama specials before the nomination. The o-press is casting their vote every day.

        I agree there are some good indicator’s in the recent polls. Especially the low undecided number with Mitt leading. Of course the one thing polls cannot calculate is how many dead will rise to vote and how many times will the same nitwit get to for Obastard. Voter fraud will set an all new milestone this November…

      Dave, I forgot, if you stomach can stand it, take a look at the speaker list for their convention. Its a hoot.

        OMG bull! It looks to me like a good list of people to get salmonella. I hope they laid out all the food for the convention…oh…about a month ago! All ya’ can eat ya’ damn nut jobs…

    The Saturday poll shows 47-44 Romney. It seems to me with now only 6% undecided, they might be a little over valued.

    I am very distrusting of these polls. I think they are all skewed and we are getting a bad picture of Romney’s actual percentage because all the polls take anywhere to 8 to 11% more democrats to poll. (Because there are that many more democrats than republicans nationwide according to these pollsters).
