ELECTIONS & EXIT POLLS – interestingly intriguing

*Subject: The Center Cannot Hold (see ALL 5 links below)*

In a post entitled /Losing The Center/ [1], I noted last April that
the Democrats had lost the center of the electorate during the 2010
midterm elections and these Independent voters increasingly disapproved of
President Obama.

With 12 weeks left before the 2012 general election, the Democrat center
is shrinking even smaller.

In their quarterly national survey of likely voters, the
bipartisan Battleground poll [link 2] found that Independent voters
DISAPPROVE of President Obama’s job performance by a 55% to 42% margin and
48% planned to vote for GOP candidate Mitt Romney compared to 37% for
Barack Obama.

In their quarterly survey of likely voters in a dozen swing states,
the bipartisan Purple Poll [3] found that Independent voters DISAPPROVE
of President Obama’s job performance by a 55% to 37% margin and 50% planned
to vote for GOP candidate Mitt Romney compared to 39% for Barack Obama.

As a point of comparison, in the *2008 exit poll* [link 4], Barack Obama
won 52% of the Independent voters.

If these numbers hold over the next 12 weeks, it will be
mathematically impossible for Barack Obama to win re-election. LET’S PRAY
THIS HAPPENS!!
