Subject:  NC, VA, FL Called for Romney. Date:  10/10/2012  6:12 PM

We shall see, but Suffolk University has pulled out of polling NC, VA, and FL stating that it is "overwhelming" and that Romney will take these states. He stated that this was the conclusion even before the debate.

He may be mistaken, but this is a very bold statement from a man whose credibility and living are based upon polling. And Suffolk University is hardly a right wing conservative outfit.

In the end, same thing that I have been stating, the incumbent is a known quantity and he cannot get above 47%, not likely to do so ever. And this was before the debate, when Romney really had not introduced himself to the country.

If this is the case (and certainly pollsters have been wrong before, no matter how confident they sound), then Romney does not need to take Ohio to win. Ohio would make it practically a sure thing for Romney.

But spin it as you may Tamhas and all. Certainly polling has been used by you when it suited you, and I told you I did not believe all the polling for the reasons I cited so no need to argue the nitty gritty on issues that were wrong at their core to begin with.

So have at it and all, again.
