Bufa .. pollster reputations are based on how well they predict. The closer they get to the truth the better they are utilized (paid) to do polls. You are deluded to think there is some sort of nefarious 'pollster plot' to lie to conservatives. Take off the aluminum hat and learn to face reality outside of the right wing bubble.

As the presidential debates are set to kick off this week, Barack Obama continues to hold a modest national lead over Mitt Romney.  Here are the top-line numbers among likely voters in three new polls:

Washington Post/ABC News - Obama 49, Romney 47

Politico/GWU - Obama 49, Romney 47

Rasmussen - Obama 50, Romney 47 (includes leaners)

Digging a little deeper, the WaPo/ABC News poll shows a virtually-tied national race, but has Obama up...
