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...

What would your asshole militant anti-colonialist father say now, Barry?  Would he be happy your reign at the head of the Empire is coming to an inglorious close since you both managed to expand it and fuck it up all at the same time?

If we're gonna turn into a third world country.....might as well have some fun doing it.

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?

I suppose Dear Leader won't be able to subpenny his way to another four years.

Mullah Obummer has been trying to manipulate InTrade with Soros help.  People are sick of Mugabe 2. He and Apple are felching America towards a Dick-Tator-Ship.

I'm a bit confused.

If Obama is merely a puppet, how can he fuck anything up?

The 'dreams of his father' included abandoning his wife and son, beating up family members who couldn't defend themselves, and crawling into a bottle of whatever booze was on hand. At least when he passed out from drunkenness, he was harmless.

The "iconic" heroes of the Left in America and the world.  Incredibly incompetent marxist, islamic, affirmative action candidates who could not hold a job at McDonalds.

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.

"to catch back down to 'stocks' reality..."  LOL, shouldn't the CONTEXT basket against which the market must evaluate Obama's value be more complex than just the S&P?

Obama is percieved as TWICE the Prez, just as SP 500 has been lifted TWICE it's actual value. All makes perfect sense; no need to complicate things.

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.

It would sure be nice to be able to buy some options on InTrade but I can't becasue I am American. A big shout out to Harry "The Turd" Reid for making this all possible.

Which one of us on here cares?  Do we not all believe this is a shit-show then?  Fuck the two of them.

Damned if you do, and damned if you dont.  The lesser of two evils is still fucking evil.  Stop posting partisan bollocks when we all know the fucking score ZH.

Vote for a fucking fridge, or a dog, or an orange.  Anything but these two isreali cocksuckers

Dude there are some here who are true believers. They think their opinions or thoughts matter.

There are a majority who are paid posters here to muddy the waters.

Only a handful, one hand, understand there is no choice that every decision has been made politically and economically and modeled until there is no angle not prepared for.

And then are people like me who have had enough.  Fuck this disgusting charade, what the fuck they want to prove now then?  That they are not lying isreali first fuckers?  Send your American first born to die on thier altar?

Wake up, get the with the program and fuck this two headed bastard for the swine he is.  In-human child killers.  Top to bottom, and if ZH isnt aware of this by now after posting four years of partisan bullshit, fuck this mate.

Bring it down bitchez.  Stop this shit as only the population can.  And stop posting bullshit.

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.

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.

Anyone who is wasting their gas and time voting this election should write in their own name if it is allowed. Personally the best thing that could happen would be the lowest voter turnout ever.
