Latest Gallup Obama Poll Causes Another InTrade Flash Crash

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Gallup just announced the results of their latest poll and find Romney has overtaken Obama 49% to 47% among 'Likely Voters'. Obama still holds the lead among 'Registered voters' but this headline was enough to cause a dramatic crash (back under 60%) in Obama's odds on Intrade's market. Critically, the entire post-QEternity bump that Obama-believers had bought, has now been retraced as it seems the old adage "As Goes AAPL, So Goes Obama" is proving true...

 

 

 

InTrade Obama Odds plunged...

 

to catch back down to 'stocks' reality...

Are you trying to tell me that Obama doesn't have a Plunge Protection Team covering the InTrade futures market?

Where's all those HFT algos when you need them?

Someone interviewed the dumb f**kers who support dear Mullah at U of Wisc at Madison.  They asked them if they thought it was unfair that Obummer was unable to use his teleprompter at the debate.  The majority agreed they he should have been allowed to use TOTUS to help him.

I beg to differ. That the S&P only doubled while the Fed balance sheet quadrupled suggests he's only 1/2 the worth of a typical statist.

Yawn. Obama's got this in the bag. The incumbent nearly always wins in the US. They make this seem like these are blackjack odds that he wins. Its really 80% likely that he's going to win. In the end, even a voter who tries to take this decision seriously has got the option between the evil that you know versus the evil that you don't know. You don't go with the lesser of two evils, you go with the more certain of two evils. I say if you're going to vote, pick the empty suit who will become a lame duck 3 months after the election.

Catullus

Obama was a placeholder selected to make Democrats happy.

Eventually he goes to the Un for the job that was Clintons until he was publicly humiliated. The crime wasn't the sex, it was the publicity.

I'm starting to think Romney will pull a John Roberts and move more, for lack of a better word, "left".

That is after he takes office.

Then when he needs to declare martial law in  a few major metropolitan areas few can complain and understand what that really means.

I think Obama is the Left's Ronald Reagan. He talks a big game and represents everything they believe in. But he doesn't actually do any of the things he says. Reagan was the same. Tough talk, against big government, "cut taxes", the welfare queen bullshit. It was all a lie. David Stockman gave the best perspective on it. They let the opportunists take over and worried about remaining in power.

In 30 years, lefties in this country will look back on the Obama years the same way full of shit conservatives have canonized Reagan. Not realizing that this is has how you get triangulated into marginalization.

Downvote all you like, but Cat is right. Reagan may have cut taxes, but he grew the federal government, big-time. And a tax cut without spending cuts, is really just a tax-postponement.

Remember when we went into Libya Obama promised that it would only be "a matter of days and not weeks."? People were waving flags and cheering that we were helping to liberate the Libyan people and weren't we grand. A short time later our ambassador gets tortured to death after as it turns out now, there was plenty of warning and requests for help. Obama, Romney, it makes no difference, I'm sure we'll be 'liberating' another country in the ME soon who will in turn be equally welcoming.

The trouble with your perception is that you are comparing facts and possibly fiction.

Romney's resume is well known. He's super rich and made money by sucking others dry to the bone. He's also a Mormon and they're brainwashed freaks.

Obama is still a big question mark. After 4 years all the allegations above have to be proven to be correct.
