This is the best indicator of all in terms of how to gauge Obama’s popularity. Most Dem candidates don’t want to be seen on stage with him. They try to disassociate themselves from him. It makes one wonder how he could be reelected.
He isn’t going to be.
If they thought he was going to win, they would want him in their state or appear at his rallies.
The fact they haven’t says it even more clearly than all the polls do.
People may lie about their voting intentions, but its impossible to deceive someone about your “tell”. 90% of human communication is non-verbal. Your body language has already revealed the real you before you’ve even said a word! Its all subconscious and most people are not aware of it all.
