Isn’t the real question why is Obama at 46% … That’s loser territory.
So why can’t Obama tell us what’s instore for his second term? Why not?
Simple direct answer, he thinks you care more about abortion that you do about your country.
They really try, don’t they. Tell me, do you think Democrats at the polls will be +9 over Republicans? Because that’s what the Washington Post thinks.
These days, even a +9 Democrat sample can’t buy Barack Obama a lead in the Washington Post/ABC poll. Instead, Mitt Romney has a one-point edge, 47/46, but more tellingly a four-point margin among independents:
The Republican National Convention opens this week with President Obama and presumptive nominee Mitt Romney running evenly, with voters more focused on Obama’s handling of the nation’s flagging economy than on some issues dominating the political debate in recent weeks.
A new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows Romney at 47 percent among registered voters and Obama at 46 percent — barely changed from the deadlocked contest in early July. …
Romney’s selection of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) as his running mate also did not fundamentally reshape the race, although the GOP’s conservative base has grown more enthusiastic about the ticket — but no more so about the chances of beating Obama in November.
This is the first time that Obama has lost the lead since a brief polling burst for Romney in January, before he’d won the Republican nomination. In the very next poll, Obama soared above 50%, but has been on a straight-line descent ever since. Romney’s line of ascent is less pronounced but still steady since then:
Don’t forget that Team Obama spent $120 million this summer trying to make toxic Romney, too.
They can’t jiggle the numbers much more than they have, they peg the Republicans at 22% ???
You believe that?
