BOOM: New poll shows Romney leading Obama by 1 in Michigan

Full results here. The sample is 44% Democrat, 35% Republican, and 21% Independent, or D+9 (see page 22).

By comparison, turnout in the 2008 presidential election, when Obama-mania was at its peak, was D+12.

So D+9 seems like a reasonable (that is, unskewed) sample.

    Know this my friends, 47 to 46 means in the end 5 of the 7 undecideds will break for Romney. That means 52 to 48 as a final count. In any state where they are dead even means that state will finish with a Romney win. Obama will be lucky to get 12 states in the end. Mark my words.

      In a sane world, yes. In today’s world?

      I like your math and I hope it turns out the way you say it will.

    You couldn’t have written a book with a more perfect ending.

    We need to keep an eye on these thugs as they are escorted from office.

    People like this can and will do a lot of damage on the way out.

      Careful, it’s not over yet. And these people are capable of anything.

    Let’s go Michigan! Boot Debbie Stabenow out too!

      I wish. Unfortunately, Hoekstra hasn’t run an aggressive enough campaign. Nothing would make me happier than seeing R&R take MI, though!

    Axlerod does not deserve the use of any shaving cream and must use cold water as a penalty for pushing such an inept person for president.

    • GaryTheBrave

      Why let him use any water? I say dry shave with a dull razor. No bandages either.

      • TugboatPhil

        Gary, how will that bother Axelrod? To shave his ‘stache only requires shaving Baraka’s backside.
