President Obama has opened up a 7 point lead nationally, up from 3 points a month ago. He now leads among women, men, and independents.

Romney's unfavorabilities have jumped dramatically, contributing to his loss of ground.

And on the question of the economy, Obama leads 48-45. Romney was at 50 in July.

Presidential Approval is at 49-48.

And Reuters/Ipsos also had him up by 7 earlier this week.
Kinda weird that he's ahead by 6 among men though. Anyone else?

So maybe the consensus is that the last jobs report was positive?

CNN usually has good polls, IIRC.

No Minnesota mike

I am doing this for a several year now and have a impressive record I nailed the race in 2004 every race in 2006 every race (except MO) in 2008 and every race in 2010 (except WA)

you can follow my weekly electoral map on facebook:
 http://www.facebook.com/groups/185054414852195/

It`s all about Party ID!! and it should be a LV and not a RV!
It`s the only national poll showing Obama winning the Indy vote
but even with that scenario and the right Party ID he would lose!

No offense Ben but by election day 90% of the people here could pick the winner in almost every race. There are very few true tossups.  A quick look at the RCP polling averages or 538 and everyone is an expert.

Unless you are a pollster, you can't really have your own numbers.

yes maybe but not with the correct numbers and in 2004 many pllsters said Kerrry would be the winner 2006%2008 was easy for President but not the Governor and Senate races!

Problem this year is most polsters using the same party ID like it was 2008
won`t happen. In the best case for the Dems it will be D+2! For now its R+1

You really need to brush up on your writing skills, because I can't understand a word you're saying.  That aside, producing random numbers with stuff that you made up is really unprofessional.  Where's the evidence that turnout will be R+1 this year?

Clearly the Bain attacks have been a massive failure. Obama now leads Romeny by 4.4 points in the RCP polls average, his largest lead since April.

Because you have no real data, but only your opinion on what you would like the numbers to say.

It appears that you have a model, not "numbers." A modeler may decide to weight different poll results for different reasons, but just deciding that turnout will look a certain way and twisting actual poll results to fit that is completely backwards and unprofessional.

Well I'm interested (for now). What exactly are the parameters of your model?

I clicked on the facebook link and see a part of the map, but what criteria do you use to construct the map?

What basis do you use to say Rasmussen is the 'best in the country'?

Nate Silver on Nov. 4, 2010:  

"Rasmussen Reports Were biased and inaccurate." They had an average error of 5.5 points during that cycle.

Even if they had done well, it's simply not smart to rely so heavily on one source of data.

Beet
Rasmussen nailed the party iD in 2004+2006+2008 and 2010 and he nailed since 2004 the national results. His state b state polls are terrible sometimes but on the national level Party ID and presidential race he`s the best!!!

^^^

This is the same guy who earlier in the year posted a fake poll (one "made" by himself) and tried to pass it off as if it were legitimately conducted by a real pollster.

So perhaps you could then explain how such an esteemed pollster as yourself could fall for something that virtually everybody else identified as BS instantly?
