Obama raises $181 million in September
By Olivier Knox

President Barack Obama and the Democrats raised $181 million in September ó their largest monthly haul since he launched his reelection bid, his campaign announced Saturday.

"Some amazing news this morning: 1,825,813 people came together to raise $181 million for this campaign in September," the campaign said on Twitter.

"If you gave $5, it helped. 98% of September's contributions were $250 or less, with an average contribution of $53," it said.


The figures combine the Obama campaign's fund raising with Democratic National Committee efforts. The amount fell short of the Obama and DNC's single-month record, set in September 08, of $193 million. Romney has yet to make public his fund-raising haul.

Obama campaign manager, Jim Messina, emailed supporters with the "huge news."

Messina emphasized that the campaign and DNC had pulled in more than 10 million donations in 2012, a record.

"Day in and day out, what gives the President confidence and inspiration is knowing that you have his back -- that matters," said Messina. "We're all going to do the best we can over next 31 days to honor that support."


Now all we need is for the prez to get his rest and FIGHT BACK against "Etch-A-Sketch Willard" in the next two debates, and it will be officially GAME OVER.  Wink

Willard was not supposed to just "match" the president in fundraising, but crush him. That was the repube plan thanks to Citizen's United. Willard's dollar numbers had been surprisingly underwhelming over the summer.

You are posting this in the gossip & opinions board, you understand that...right?

Either these posts are admittedly just your opinions (not intended to be factual), or they are political posts...in which case they belong on the politics board.  Make sense, fuckface?

I remember that - Getbiggers were celebrating about just how much $ Romney would be getting.

That's why I'm so excited to see these numbers - he's gotta be at $400 mil for the month, if obama got a paltry 181 mil.

This isn't quite right. Citizens enables unlimited "independent expenditures" by outside groups, the sort of stuff that won't show up on Willard's balance sheet. So it's wrong to say that since Willard's balance sheet is underwhelming, Citizens isn't having a substantial impact: there will still be hundreds of millions spent on Willard's behalf by wealthy individuals and corporations.

Bottom line, Willard's supposed overwhelming cash flow advantage, allowing him to dwarf Obama and virtually BUY the election, has not panned out. Wink

Yet, for all that money he's raised and blown...HE'S DEAD EVEN WITH ROMNEY.

Factor in the electoral college look....MINUS the polls where Dems are oversampled 6 to 10 points and you get something similar to.....

why is RASS oversampling dems in swing states.

That is the ONLY problem with this throey.  Rass has obama ahead.

the 'unskewed' poll that claims to be unbiased while RASS and everyone else is wrong... what are their 2008 results again?

the 'unskewed' poll that claims to be unbiased while RASS and everyone else is wrong... what are their 2008 results again? 

Rasmussen has Romney up 49-47.

Plus, the explanation is simple. All you have to do is go state by state and find the breakdown of voters over the last two to three elections, average them, and use that as a makeup for 2012.

I posted this earlier from Dick Morris' site:

After Wednesday nightís smashing debate victory for Romney, we may expect the national and swing state polls to change in the Republicanís direction. But not by as much as they should. These polls are biased in favor of Obama and hereís the data to prove it:

From noted Republican pollster John McLaughlin comes a clear and convincing exposť of the bias of media polls in the swing states of Florida, Ohio, and Virginia.

McLaughlin reviewed exit polls in each state for the past four elections. From this data about who actually voted, he found that the party divisions manifest on election day have little to do with the samples upon which the media is basing its polling. And, coincidentally, it is always the Republican vote that tends to be undercounted.

In Florida, for example, McLaughlin finds that the average of the last four elections produced a turnout of 37% Democrats and 38% Republicans. But here is the partisan distribution of the most recent Florida media polls:

9-26: CBS/NY Times = 36% Dem / 27% Rep

9-23: Wash Post = 35% Dem / 29% Rep

So the media polls reflect a 9 point and six point Democratic edge even though the actual experience of the past four elections has been a 1 point Republican advantage.

Things are no better in Ohio. Here, McLaughlin finds a 2 point Democratic edge in the past four elections (38% Dem, 36% Rep). But the media polls show vastly more Democrats and fewer Republicans in their samples:

9-26: CBS/NY Times = 35% Dem / 26% Rep

9-23: Wash Post = 35% Dem / 27% Rep

9-11: NBC/Wall St Journal = 38% Dem / 28% Rep

Once again, the actual exit poll-measured vote in Ohio shows a 2 point Democratic edge, but the polls reflect Democratic advantages of 9 points, 8 points, and 10 points respectively.

In Virginia, itís the same story. The last four elections have a combined 1 point Republican edge, 37-36. But the media polls show a big pro-Democratic bias:

10/2: Roanoke College = Democrat 36% / Republican 27%

9/17: CBS/NYTimes = Democrat 35% / Republican 26%

9/16: Washington Post = Democrat 35% / Republican 24%

9/11: NBC/Wall St Journal = Democrat 31% / Republican 26%

So instead of showing a 1 point Republican edge, these media poll samples show Democratic advantages of 9,9,11, and 5.

The correct conclusion to draw from all these polls is that Romney is comfortably ahead in Virginia and Florida while he holds a slight lead in Ohio. And, remember these polls are all pre-debate!

Also, bear in mind that the undecided vote in all of these polls usually goes against the incumbent.


And note the last sentence: the undecideds almost always go heavily AGAINST the incumbent. That's why, if Romney keeps it close or has a slight lead, the undecideds will push him to the finish line.
