Hi Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching aside this status of the presidential race right this minute.
That is -- subject of this evening's talking points memo.
This is an important factor tonight because we're gonna tell you straight out where the campaign is at this point in history no spin no nonsense no ideology.
Two new polls today are very good news President Obama get the polling in general can he continues to be fluid that is.
There's a wide discrepancy in the results and most importantly more Democrats were -- than Republicans.
So the results are somewhat suspect.
First the Washington Post poll in Florida it asked -- -- Obama leading Mitt Romney by four points four points 5147.
The New York Times poll has Obama up by nine points.
5340 forcing state seem likely voters an area.
In Ohio -- post as president up by 850.
Times poll has Obama up I hit over -- 5343.
However in the Rasmussen daily tracking poll the national survey the racists hide a dead heat 4646.
On this -- four years ago Rasmussen had mr.
Obama up by five points over John McCain.
5045 such case could be made that Mitt Romney is doing better than John McCain did but that might be misleading.
The presidential race is going to come down -- just a handful of states Ohio and Florida being the most import.
Governor Romney must win in both places that's why today's polling news disclosing some controversy.
Talking points is set from the very beginning that the debates this year will be the deciding factor.
One week from tonight in Denver Colorado president will meet the governor beginning at 9 PM eastern top.
There's no question and all poll showed us that most Americans are not happy.
With president Obama's leadership especially on the economy.
With the polls also say that many of the folks don't trust Mitt Romney.
However if the governor can do it Ronald Reagan did in 1980 that is keep the incumbent president on the defense during the debates.
And the polls will surely change.
That's not an easy thing to do because.
The debate formats allow the candidates to say.
Pretty much whatever they want to say.
The moderator next week Jim Larry is not gonna control Obama Romney LSU question and keep quiet.
A -- a knock on Lara that's just the way it is any into eruptions are deemed.
The problem Mitt Romney has right now.
Is a perception that he's out of touch with folks.
The president has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on ads stating that and the governor does come across as a classic rich guy.
It's tough to picture him super sizing his meal at that stops the -- -- like that is well.
But in this class warfare age that perception is certainly holding Romney back.
The president's record is dubious to say the least but many Americans aren't -- attention and will vote on emotion.
Thus the rich divers is a regular guy scenario.
The governor Romney has only one chance.
He must convince voters during the debates.
That if the president is reelected.
Things are gonna get much worse in America.
Can he do that.
Only god knows.
Announcement now the top story tonight let's.
