"Obama's momentum benefits from his rival 'making the case against himself,' a strategist says.
The Associated Press
DES MOINES, Iowa - In a presidential race seemingly frozen in place for months, the advantage has shifted toward President Obama after a series of miscues by Mitt Romney, punctuated by the Republican challenger's comments about people who pay no income tax.

It’s from the AP what do you expect?
Don’t believe it. Both Gallup and Rassmussen’s latest tracking polls have it tied, 46-46 and 47-47. The media is going to keep pushing this narrative until a few days before the election. If the polls don’t show Obama ahead then, they will report the race is “unexpectedly tightening”.
Smoke and mirrors.
Written by the AP to support their fictional account. Most journalists should be screenwriters.
Gallup and Rasmussen both have it tied. Since "undecided" voters typically break for the incumbent, Obama's campaign should be in full-fledged panic mode right now. Let's hope that behind the teleprompter, Zero is frazzled and says or does something really, really stupid during the debates.
I checked intrade this AM - it says there Obama is a 70% probability. I tend to give gamblers more leeway than pundits. However, at this time I see intrade as an overlay and would buy Romney at 3.33 to 1. Romney can not be getting blasted as the article indicates if both Gallup and Rasmussen have a flat footed tie as of this am. It’s important to note that the article was from a noted lefty rag. In sum - they’re whistling past the graveyard as things stand today.
I don't know if the "Ayup, y'cahn't get they-a from he-ah" citizens are sold on obozo.
Then again, all of New England has been infiltrated by the Boston 'educated' commie/socialists.
Maybe all these bad news stories for Romney have something to them. People are not excited about him and and many people go with the devil they know then the devil they don't.
In my little part of the world (NH), there is no great like for Romney (and not much love for Zero), but they look at Romney as a fatcat zillionaire ... and now with his 14% tax rate middle class people are saying “I pay more than that” (even though their Effective tax rates are much less).
There seems to be WAAAAAAY to much “whistling past the graveyard” here and FR. Way to much over confidence. I believe we are all going to be slapped in the face with a terrible reality on Wed. Nov 7th.
I would agree, especially southern Maine. On another note, I watched Obama 2016 yesterday, (before it got pulled from youtube) What an eye opener.
Intrade does not have any "magic/secret" insider info like some odds maker who talked to the trainer on a football team and knows the true injury info. It it the collective choice of thousands of people who read these junk polls and then bet.
I can’t believe that voters are this stupid, that they want 4 more years of Obama. If that is the case, this country is done. put a damn fork in us. I am so pissed I can’t see straight!!!
Many people on here resent the MSM and the biased reporting.
The resentment toward Romney not fighting back is starting to grow. Romeny seems to be stuck in neutral, unable to get the car into drive. He refuses to take risks. Obama can not get much traction either. His friends in the low places media seem to keep trying to push his car as he spins in a ditch.
Intrade and Snopes, Hussein’s best Internet friends outside ABCCBSCNNNBCFOX/AP.
No, it’s just the media building a meme.
First, pretend that Romney’s “gaffes” will alienate voters.
Then manufacture Democrat-heavy polls to substantiate this.
Then run news stories about Romney’s campaign being rocked by the polling trend.
Smoke and mirrors.
I believe Romney will win this race.
However that said, this may be the last Republican race won, unless we reverse the globalization of the economy.
That 8% unemployment rate is a symptom of a USA increasingly without jobs. A USA without jobs, is a USA which votes democrat.
We have nearly passed the point of no return. We must bring back jobs. Now.
In our state the commie-rat challenger to the Republican senate candidate constantly refers to to him as a millionaire in her adds.
And here it is stated: “but they look at Romney as a fatcat zillionaire”.
Somebody please explain to me how someone being wealthy makes them unsuitable for public office? What is the logic, what is the rationale behind this other than playing mind games with the stupid?
I’m so sick of this class warfare/divide and conquer leftist BS I could just puke!!!!!!!!!
Most journalists should be in the unemployment lines.
