It’s hard to know what to make of the polls heading into November 6th’s monumental election. The media would have you believe that Barack Obama has his re-election in the bag. However, there is as much as an 11 point difference between some polls in the same state taken on the same day.
This morning on the radio program, Stu pointed out that if you look at all of the different polling data, things do not look good for Mitt Romney. However, if you live in the world where you only believe Rasmussen Reports (also known as “Pat’s World”) things look a bit more positive for Romney.
Rasmussen, after-all, was the most accurate pollster during the 2008 elections.
According to an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll that came out on the same day as Rasmussen’s did in Iowa, Obama is leading by 8.
That’s an 11 point difference between two different polls released on the same day in the same state.
“At this point you just don’t know,” Stu said.
Pat, who is convinced that Romney can’t be losing as bad as the ‘non-Rasmussen’ polls claim, joked that “something sinister must be going on.”
“I don’t know if it’s the methodology, I don’t know if it’s the way they’re asking the questions, I don’t know if it’s the bias of the people taking them,” Pat said, but he’s not buying it.
Glenn chimed in and shared a conversation he had with Pastor John Hagee the previous night regarding the election. Like Pat, Hagee was extremely optimistic about Romney’s chance in November.
Hagee is encouraging that Americans participate in a 40 day fast and prayer being organized by a few organizations, which begins on the 28th and ends on election day. He believes that if America turns to God, He will help lead the country down the right path.
Glenn encouraged listeners to participate in the prayer/fast as he believes the country is in need of divine providence.
“Change the course of the future.”
