Here's a warning to Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu.
With the Ides of October just a few days away, Beware, Bibi, Beware.
Because during his petulant debate rant last night, Vice President Joe Biden (aka the Delware Dolt) referred to the Prime Minister as his friend of 39 years.
Yes, this was the same Delaware Dolt who referred to Republican Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan no fewer than 14 times as his friend.
Obviously when the Delaware Dolt refers to someone as a friend, what he really means is he hates the guy from every corner of his malicious dark heart. He's the kind of Joe who'll call you "friend" while at the same time reaching with a knife to stab you in the back...if not the front.
Beware Bibi, be very much aware of "friends" like Biden the Buffoon.
Only a week after the WMUR/Granite State Survey (UNH) showed President Barack Obama with a 15 point lead over Mitt Romney in New Hampshire, Rasmussen is out with a poll showing the state dead even at 48-48 with three percent for other candidates and only one percent undecided.
A new UNH survey is out which cuts Obama's lead down to six points and there were indications that not all of the debate bounce was built into that survey, so we should expect Obama's lead to be less than that in a future UNH poll.
We are left with the conclusion that the 15 point UNH poll was due to being taken in the direct aftermath of Romney's damaging "47 percent" remarks.
It's amazing how a phrase or a single idea can turn votez in such fast track conditions as these.
What about the three percent going for "others" in the Ramussen poll. Well, there are only two "others" on the New Hampshire ballot, Libertarian Gary Johnson and Viril Goode from the Constitution Party. My guess is that more Libertarain votes would go to Romney than Obama, so Johnson could indeed cost Romney the state if it's a razor thin margin (the way Ralph Nader cost Al Gore the state and the Presidency in 2000).
Pollster still has New Hampshire in the Obama column (as part of his 263-206 lead). Pollster has only Ohio, Florida, Colorado, and Virginia as toss-ups, and Romney would need to win all three to stop Obama. However, if he won New Hampshire, he could then afford to lose Colorado!
Real Clear Politics has New Hamsphire back to a toss-up along with ten other states: the usual suspects plus Pennsylvania and Wisconsin (which were for Obama) and Missouri and North Carolina which will most certainly go for Romney. Obama's edge has narrowed to 217-181 with RCP, no surprise since RCP now has Romney up a full point in the national average (48.2-47.2). Pollster still has Obama up, albeit by only 0.1 (46.9-46.8).
Rasmussen has Romney up one nationally (48-47) while Gallup has it back to even (48-48).
Rasmussen has other state polls today showing Romney closing. He's down only two in Wisconsin (51-49) and is even at 47-47 in Nevada. Rasmussen has Obama still leading by five (51-46) in Pennsylvania.
Also potentially bad news for the GOP--for only the second time all year, Rasmussen has Democrats ahead, albeit by only one point (44-43) in this week's important generic Congressional ballot poll. Republicans had led by six points or so much of the year.
Now we await Rasmussen numbers on the Ovide/Maggie race. I suspect Ovide will be up three or four.
