Pollster Says They’re No Longer Covering Florida, Virginia Or North Carolina Because They’re Going For Romney
That’s certainly very confident of them:
Suffolk University pollster David Paleologos, whose polls are aggregated into mainstream averages to show where the presidential race stands in the swing states, said he’s finished polling in Florida, North Carolina and Virginia because President Obama has no shot of winning those states.
“I think in places like North Carolina, Virginia and Florida, we’ve already painted those red, we’re not polling any of those states again,” Paleologos said Tuesday night on Fox’s “The O’Reilly Factor.” “We’re focusing on the remaining states.”
Obama won North Carolina by a very slim margin, just .3% of the vote, but the other two states were pretty solidly for the president in 2008. Virginia went to Obama by roughly 6 points and Florida by nearly 3 points.
If Obama has really lost that much support in these three states – we’re talking about 57 electoral votes – he’s in a lot of trouble.Tags: Barack Obama, florida, north carolina, virginia
