Anybody else getting a little worried about Romney slipping 5-6 points in last couple of weeks in the Rasmussen poll?

Let's see what the post-Ryan polls look like. Also the convention bounce.

I heard that Romney was somewhat limited in responding to Obama's lies because Romney spent most of his primary funds and has to wait for the general election to begin before he can start spending again. Since Obama was unopposed, he still has his primary funds to spend attacking Romney.

Hopefully, Obama's lies were so over-the-top that Romney doesn't need to respond; the people will be naturally turned off by Obama's extreme antics.

The Ohio poll may be a bellwether.

My read is Romney's slip is temporary and likely due to the massive nobama ad campaign this last month, which even though sounds a bit early for so much ads, the nobama camp is in a life or death struggle to get their 2008 voters re-energized (which does not seems to be working very well).

GOP will get a bump following the Convention as more Indies start listening, nobama will start to run low on funds and the final 3 or 4 weeks may see nobama unable to put together many ads. By then it'll almost be a done deal anyway regardless of how various polls want to push.

One thing I have noted, dems and nobama in particular are so emotionally tied to their far left ideology they give away their fear with body language. The worse their internal polls show, the more desperate they will come across. Desperation never gins up support.
