President Obama she's she's going to head into key swing states and factor in Virginia -- probably three.
In Ohio for example eighteen electoral votes at stake President Obama leading Mitt Romney 5244.
The Washington Post ball.
And in Florida electoral votes say the as has a lot at stake.
29 in all.
-- on top excuse me Romney trails 5147.
So commit Romney regain his lead -- is -- is only going to get worse and what's causing this trend.
Dick Morris is a Fox News contributor and the author of screwed it.
And a former advisor to President Clinton Dick you believed is not your -- your -- there's the -- this story is what's behind the numbers.
I don't think the numbers are accurate I think that.
The there it's a fundamental error going on in the polling this year by the media organizations.
Not by Scott Rasmussen who.
Has a different technique and -- recent shares Romney won behind in Florida one behind in Virginia in two behind in Ohio.
And Obama well below 50% of the vote which means that he probably gets the undecided vote -- this could actually be -- in those states.
The difference is that.
These these posters are using the 2008.
Turnout model that was -- totally unique chair elect.
Huge African American huge Latino huge college students.
Relatively fewer elderly.
And that model happened for one year only 2008.

Well I don't believe that.
I believe what -- doing is re waiting the data and and that wouldn't establish a trend I mean it's not such thing as a trend in a bad poll.
The the accurate polling which there's no reason to go to those -- go to the accurate ones resolution -- of this race within a point -- In each of those states and by the way the trend.
-- -- Where it went in my own polling what we say is that Romney was doing fine and eight in August.
I fell back a little bit because the Democratic Convention.
Recovered at the end of last week and now it's pretty much even for and I think that's the reality.
I think if the election were held today -- let me say flatly.
That Romney would carry Ohio Florida.
Nevada Virginia and a shot at Wisconsin where I am today.
And would win over 300 electoral votes.
I think the media is either deliberately or inadvertently harm -- -- wrong -- -- showing this race to be very different than it really yet.
The New York Times Washington Post said basically using that science -- them by him -- meant rowdy Chile and all three but nationally just about everyone says it's a dead heat.
Dick stick around --
