The gen public has an attention span for politics of a week at absolute best. Very little of anything happening now will ultimately matter for anyone whose mind isn’t already made up. I used to think differently, but my faith in the intelligence of the American voter is shot.
The candidate that throws the most believable dirt in the last 7 days (really the last three) will win by the margin of ‘believability’ in his attack ads. So if in the last week you don’t see Team Romney going full bore Pit Bull, you’ll know that this has all been bread and circuses.
That's why there is always talk of an "October Surprise". Preferably, the LAST week in October. Can't wait to see what the Bamster has cooked up for us.
There’s a ton of smoke swirling around right now. The state by state EV count is all that matters and right now it doesn’t look good for Romney:
Obama will not be within 8 pts of Romney in the last 7 days.
