The battleground states that the media’s fake polls are assigning to Barack Obama are populated by a large number of military veterans. Florida alone has 1.6 million; and Ohio, Virginia, and North Carolina have nearly 1 million each. These numbers are extremely important because at least one Left wing media outlet, Reuters, is reporting that Mitt Romney has an insurmountable 20 point lead over Barack Obama among veterans.
While insisting that their Democrat-skewed survey “results” are showing a growing overall lead for Obama, Reuters has been forced to acknowledge that veterans are less supportive of Obama now than they were four years ago. This lead (whether it is being accurately reported or shorted) holds across all veteran age groups. This will be a major factor in the election because 49% of veterans are 65+, a group that intends to vote at 86%.
Obama’s problem with veterans is that they are aware of his policies and hostility toward the military.
A second item that has not been reported is a recent survey of attitudes about immigration conducted by the Leftists at Latino Decisions for the National Hispanic Media Coalition. That survey didn’t find the data they hoped it would. On a scale of three positions (“cold”, “neutral”, or “warm”) toward illegal aliens, the liberals who listen to National Public Radio (NPR) were 46% “cold” toward illegals (versus 32% “warm” toward these uninvited guests.)
Overall, the survey found support for many of the polices conservatives have been demanding for years. Those policies include “show me your papers” powers for those arrested by our police, deportation of arrested illegals, reliance on E-Verify cards to be hired, and forcing the Social Security and IRS agencies to cooperate in investigations of illegals and legal status for driver’s licenses. All of these are hated by the Left.
Why have you not heard about these attitudes toward illegal aliens? In the words of Janet Murguia of the National Council of La Raza, who is now in charge of all domestic policy issues for Barack Obama: “We have to draw the line on freedom of speech, when freedom of speech becomes hate speech.”
So remember, your opinion is hate speech if you disagree with any benefit for illegal aliens.
