Thanks for the tip, I missed it. I'm getting sloppy in my old age, sorry.
But I noticed something in looking at the numbers, I started at Election Day and looked back. I gave up ehen I hit April. But in all those months,
the only time Obama was behind was September 7-16. You probably noted that McCain was nominated on September 4, at the end of the Repulican
convention. I wonder what other news made the numbers crazy for ten days.
Anyway, Obama had a more comfortable and longer lead over McCain than he's had over Romney.
Oh, for the poster (sorry, I forgot your name) who was sure that Obama was ahead by a lot in the polls. Gallup has Obama up by 1%, Rasmussen has him
down by 1%, AP has him up by 1%. I suspect you're looking at polls which are outliers. This is a closer race for Obama than everyone seems to
But I do appreciate the strategy. Keep saying Romney has lost, over and over, even if it isn't true, to try and discourage Republicans so they
don't vote. As I say, good political strategy, but a poor basis for a serious discussion.
