Real story is women are 50% against.

Obama’s plan was to pick up various minority groups and a huge number of white women voters. If single white women vote 50/50, the election is over.

Could we be seeing a Convention Thud in the making?

What has been bothering me about the polls is that the pollsters have been using Adults and Registered Voters WAAAY too late in the polling cycle.

Me thinks the pollsters, who actually give a F about their reputation are going to use the DNC Convention to start getting polls back in line with what everyone thinks will happen. A Reagan Landslide, and the pollster(s) who "calls it first" is going to get the prize they compete for, relevance.

Could you imagine the pollster who shows O +4 on election night (and leading up to it) who missed the coming a$$ whooping that R2 is about to give Team Zero?

They need relevance to stay relevant.

Do any of the recent Presidents have a home worth 35 million??? Buying a 35 million dollar oceanfront property can’t sit well with some people.

This hurry up and find a place to land in 2013 is a sign to me that they know he isn’t going to win.

What's the opposite of a "Convention Bounce"?

Ready for this . . .

Barack Obama approaches his nomination for a second term with the lowest pre-convention personal popularity of an incumbent president in ABC News/Washington Post polls since the 1980s.

I bet Bush has something to do with this.

Is it 47% or 42%? Since it dropped 7% from 49%, I’d say 42%.

They are going to either make sure he gets a bounce or a bigger bounce by bringing his numbers low now. It’s all smoke and mirrors.

There is a factor I believe partly in play here.

I have seen too many women - even middle age and old, go gaga for whoever they perceive as the best looking - not bothering to weigh any other factors.

So, last election, we had O’bumbles and - ah - McCain.

This time, we have O’Bumbles skinny little ar*se and Biden against two strikingly handsome, well built men - one younger than O’bummer and with great blue eyes.

I have a couple lady friends - both grandmothers! - that still gush over bubba - and now O’bumbles. Make me want to puke.

But it is a factor - a real one. This time, looks like it's in OUR favor. (Unless O’bummer finally is able to stop the rising seas and heal the earth.)

With all the material to work with, imagine where his popularity would be if the hypocritical and shameful press and media had gone after him as mercilessly as they did George W. Bush?

His ratings are plummeting in-spite of their attempts to shore him up. They might as well pile on now so they can feel like they accomplished something.

They mean since Carter.

Did this occur during the DNC tribute to Ted Kennedy?

Forty-seven percent of registered voters see Obama as favorable???

Just about the same number of American adults with sub-normal IQs.

Head fake. This is just to portray him as the “comeback kid” and guarantee a post-convention bounce.

Then why do the same media outlets report that he's neck-and-neck with Romney? Maybe because...

For Romney, a Faint Favorability Bounce,/i>

I hope he doesn't faint.

The slope of the truth curve is beginning to rise slightly. It will be vertical by november
