Skip to comments.New Polls Show Bain Attack Hurtů Obama

When you consider the state of our failing and slowing recovery and the cold hard fact that tens of millions of American are either out of work or have stopped looking for work, Obama's poll numbers are defying gravity. There's no way he should be tied with Mitt Romney. So what's keeping Obama afloat?
A lot of pollsters and pundits and nobodies like myself think it's two things. This isnt a criticism and it will change as we get closer to the conventions, but we dont really know Mr. Romney yet. The other thing is that President Obama is just so darn likable. Kind of like Cousin Eddie from the "Vacation" movies, Obama might be destructive, selfish, and not terribly bright -- but you just got to like the guy.
In polls, likability can be measured separately but also by what's known as "favorability" and, in poll after poll, Obama's favorability usually looks much better than his job approval ratings.
The new New York Times/CBS poll hit like a bomb -- especially for a corrupt media that has spent the last few weeks attempting to aid and abet Obama by beating Romney into the ground over tax returns. You've also had Obama and his crew blasting Romney with words like "felon" and -- at least according to a number of media fact-checkers -- shamelessly lying about Romney's business record.
The NYT/CBS poll hit like a bomb because it not only showed that these hysterical attacks haven't hurt Romney -- but that they have hurt Obama. .

People want their free bennies. /shrugs
“So what’s keeping Obama afloat?”
Obama has GREAT ads and an extraordinarily inept and weak
The fact is, if only Obama was a conservative,
Mr. RomneyCARE would be all over him like
a angry boa constrictor on a rat.
Likable? Likability?? What? WHAT? Aaahhhh I don’t think so...
As Rove or Morris would say, Obama has a major problem. He can’t mention, attack on, or bring up the economy because it puts the focus on how ineffectual HE has been with it.
He owns it now in voters minds, so whenever he brings up the economy and Mitt in the same sentence, he always loses by comparison.
I think the people realize that there really is not that much difference.
