Lance Armstrong Doping Ring?
RUSH: Apparently Lance Armstrong and his cycling buddies at the Postal Service Team and maybe even beyond engaged in "the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen." The news continues to come out. You know, that's destroyed a lot of people. Lance Armstrong was an inspiration -- is an inspiration -- to millions of people, and these revelations... It's always been hanging over his head that he used drugs and other enhancements.
He's always denied it and he's never failed a test. Nevertheless, they think they've got the goods, and he finally threw in the towel. He said (summarized), "I'm not fighting this any more. I've had it. I'm fed up with it," and assumption was that means he's gonna get caught, doesn't want to get caught, and is just admitting it in his own way. They've kept at it, and now the latest is that the program he was engaged in was "the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen."
Which, as I say, is disappointing a lot of people.
Pollster Pulls Out of Swing States Citing Romney Victory
RUSH: The Suffolk University polling unit has decided to pull out of North Carolina, Virginia, and Florida. They're not gonna poll in those states anymore. Do you know why? Because they say Romney wins them. Romney wins North Carolina, Virginia, and Florida. They're in the bag. We're not gonna waste any more time or money polling in those three states. We're moving elsewhere. We're gonna take our polling resources and we're gonna expend it elsewhere because North Carolina, Virginia, Florida are in the bag.
I've heard of campaigns pulling out of states.
I've never heard of pollsters pulling out of states.
Dem-Tilted Poll Shows Romney Up Five
RUSH: is there something happening out there? I have another poll, latest poll. IBD/TIPP, IBD Investor's Business Daily. They've got a poll out that shows Romney up five with a plus-eight Democrat sample. Investor's Business Daily. Obviously a conservative editorial page at IBD. The polling period is October 4th through the 9th. That's through yesterday. Margin of error, plus or minus 3.5%, and the sample size is 797 likely voters. Identified from a sample of 873 registered voters with party affiliation of 39 Democrat, 31 Republican, 30% independent, Romney 48.7, Obama 43.7, that's Romney plus five, with a plus-eight Democrat advantage in the sample.
