Purple Strategies

A new poll of four critical swing states by Purple Strategies, taken after Mitt Romney selected Paul Ryan as his running mate. Virginia and Ohio flipped to Romney-Ryan. In Florida and Colorado, Romney-Ryan lost ground, though no change in who is ahead. Numbers below.

Summary: R&R ahead in Virginia, Ohio and Florida; O&B in Colorado. I plugged these four wins into the electoral map calculator @ 270towin. Results: Obama 210 vs. Romney 251 vs. Unsure 77. At the moment, Obama needs 60 more to win, while Romney only needs 19 more. Pennsylvania is worth 20. Just sayin’. 🙂

VIRGINIA Shift from Obama and Unsure to Romney-Ryan +4

Pre-Ryan JULY Obama 46% vs. Romney 44% vs. Unsure 10% = 100%

Post-Ryan AUG Obama 45% vs. Romney 48% vs. Unsure 8% = 101% ?

OHIO Shift from Obama to Unsure +3 and Romney-Ryan +1

Pre-Ryan JULY Obama 48% vs. Romney 45% vs. Unsure 7% = 100%

Post-Ryan AUG Obama 44% vs. Romney 46% vs. Unsure 10% = 100%

FLORIDA Shift from Unsure to Obama +2, Romney-Ryan steady, ahead by 2 less

Pre-Ryan JULY Obama 45% vs. Romney 48% vs. Unsure 7% = 100%

Post-Ryan AUG Obama 47% vs. Romney 48% vs. Unsure 5% = 100%

COLORADO Shift from Unsure to Obama +4 and from Unsure to Romney-Ryan +2

Pre-Ryan JULY Obama 45% vs. Romney 44% vs. Unsure 11% = 100%

Post-Ryan AUG Obama 49% vs. Romney 46% vs. Unsure 6% = 101% ?

I’m guessing the b.s. Obama is pimping about Medicare is the biggest thing hurting R&R right now. That ought to change once the truth gets out. Key fact: Medicare as we know it is going to end if we do nothing. Changing it is the only way to save it. The R&R plan doesn’t affect anyone 55 or older. Obama has no plan.

Liberals and Crime

August 16, 2012: Cops have identified the man who shot a security guard at the Family Research Council yesterday as a 28-year-old volunteer at a gay and lesbian center in Washington. The Family Research Council supports traditional marriage.

Funny, isn’t it? If the traditional marriage guy had shot the gay activist it would be a hate crime. But since it was a hate-filled gay activist who shot a traditional marriage guy, it’s just a plain old crime.

Maybe we should be grateful it still is a crime. The way the Obama-philes are eroding our rights, another four years with them in charge and we could end up being as in season as Blacks were back in the bad old KKK days.

The KKK was founded and populated by Democrats too. There’s a lesson in there somewhere.

In other campaign eatery news …

Earlier this week, a small bakery owner was approached by Joe Biden’s advance team to arrange a campaign visit by the Vice President.

He said thanks, but no thanks. He disagrees with Obama’s policies and said he was particularly offended by Obama saying he had not built his own business.

Shortly afterwards, the Secret Service slipped in and thanked him for saying no (and bought sacks full of baked goodies).

The next day, Crumb and Get It had to shut down at 1:15 p.m. because they ran out of food.
