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.

    The last day or so is the first time that I have been hopeful, not that Romney would win Virginia, but that Obama would lose. I think he is on the downward path at the moment. Pray he continues! Sarah sure cut him off at the pass with her “drop Biden” advice, which she knew he would never, ever take since it came from her! Her remarks also made sure that the media could not help but talk about Biden’s gaffes in order to explain why she made her remarks.
