Video: Q-Poll Results Show Obama at 50% or Higher in FL, OH, PA


For more on these excellent Quinnipiac/CBS News/New York Times poll results, click here. Assuming these polls are accurate, and assuming that Obama wins all three of these states, then sorry Virginia political junkies, but the presidential election won’t be decided here. Still, it would be sweet to see Virginia go “blue” for President, U.S. Senate, and as many Congressional seats as possible (heck, I’d take even one pickup this cycle, any more would be icing…). Plus, there’s tons of time until election day, and all kinds of things can happen, so let’s just keep working hard, keep the pedal to the metal, and focus on kicking the pathological liar Willard’s butt back to Bermuda, or wherever his tax-dodging riches are stashed these days…

P.S. Perhaps the Obama campaign’s efforts at defining Romney are working, and perhaps #romneyshambles disastrous trip abroad, in which he pissed off just about everyone and made one ill-advised comment after another, didn’t help matters for Willard? Let’s hope so, on both counts.

    This poll is of “likely voters.” While it’s still a bit early to put too much faith in polling, the fact that they used likely voters, instead of registered voters, gives the poll more credibility. Plus, as a head-to-head poll, the wording of questions becomes less a factor. The breakdown of the likely voters by party preference isn’t given in the summary, and that can play an important role.

    Having said all that, it still behooves all of us to work as hard as we can between now and November. It’s boots on the ground that matter the most.
