Rand Paul: Romney Needs Strong Debate Performances to WinSubmitted by Allegory on Thu, 10/04/2012 - 01:35
Senator Rand Paul has joined many of his fellow Republicans in doubting the accuracy of polls in this year’s presidential race.
In recent weeks, President Barack Obama has seen his lead widen significantly in two battleground states that border Kentucky: Ohio and Virginia. Obama's lead is also widening in national polls and in other battleground states.
In response, Republicans have dismissed the polls, saying they aren’t accurately reflecting changes in the country’s voting blocs since 2008.
“Most of the polls are polling from 2008 data, not from 2010 data; I was part of the 2010 election. I still think it’s better than it seems according to the polls,” Paul says.
