This is quite remarkable. One thing I know is that without these polls, especially if they are going to Romney, the RCP average and other averaging will not reflect the improving Romney numbers. Regardless, this statement gives us a sense that what we’re seeing with Romney is not a temporary bounce but a steady surge.

The Hill: Pollster pulls out of Fla., NC and Va., says Obama can’t win there

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.”

Mitt Romney has spiked in the national polls since his first debate last week against President Obama. Romney took the lead over Obama nationally for the first time all year on Tuesday, according to the RealClearPolitics average of polls, although statistically the two are tied. Romney’s advantage is less than 1 percentage point.

The race has also tightened in the 12 swing states — Florida, North Carolina and Virginia among them — that President Bush won in 2004 but Obama won in 2008, and which will be critical in determining the outcome of the election.

    The American citizen has just witnessed another Fast & Furious bamboozled on them by this administration. The original F&F was intended to weaken the 2nd admendment. The Bengazhi affair occurred to o’db as an opportunity to weaken the 1st admendment. Instead of the truth of a terrorist attack, for weeks this DB has blamed a video on what happened in Bengazi while attacking our free speech. This “President” and his fellow travelers have an agenda and HATE this country and especially hates this country’s Constitution and they will do anything to weaken or distroy it.

      They are really starting to meltdown aren’t they? They just can’t believe their messiah is fading fast…Even the media is turning on him…finally..It is a lovely thing to observe and clearly the O can’t understand it. He has never been rejected or questioned before in his entire life. Just a spoiled child…

    Don’t mean to spoil the party ,but I don’t trust ANYTHING if Obama’s involved in any way.
    No game is won in the 1st half. Last thing Tea Party should do is RELAX….its just that there’s no bottom of the barrel with ppl like Pelosi, Reid, Holder, Axelrod, Carney, Biden, Schumer….but the thing that has changed this whole electoral cycle, has been the LEFTIE MEDIA…..without them this whole nightmare could not have manifested itself! They LIE… I blame them equally with the DB.
    So,to me…., it aint over til its over…..not a time to let guard down at all, they will be trying every last ditch effort BS ploy, and I’m sure we’re in for a few more head explosions.
