Like everything with barry it will fade. This was the media pushing the 47 pct but as the truth slowly drips out it will be Romney ahead

I suspect the 47% video is influencing the mushy-headed 5-7%. This was my fear. Watch Obama continue to use quotes from that video in strategically placed geographic areas. Romney needs to get more aggressive on this issue or it may be an Achilles heel.

The Democrat media and entertainment complex may just be too much to overcome. In that case, America is finished.

The silver lining I do find is 17 countries outpace America on the economic freedom list now. When it all goes to sh*t — and it will if Obamugabe is reelected — it’d be good to know there are a couple options.

I think you will see Obama up 5 by week’s end. But by next week it’ll be back to a tie. No matter what, it all comes down the economy - and it is lousy... and Obama owns it.

This is a bad week for Romney (unfortunately just as he was going ahead after the DNC bounce deflated). Oh. Well.

Romney was right. These people will vote for free stuff no matter who gets hurt by it. To these voters, it's all about "gimme gimme."

The problem with these daily polls from Rasmussen, is there seems to be 4-5% who will change their minds if somebody down the hall farts.

They are based on a three day average so he picks up trends quickly. And it is undeniable, at least in the short-term, these comments have dinged Romney pretty badly.

Hope you’re right, but right now 93-95% of the likely voters have made up their mind. The last 5-7% are, by definition, ill-informed, apolitical types who are easily convinced by demagoguery and propaganda. No poll easily captures their tendencies, no matter what the pundits claim. The 47% video is easy fodder for the Dumbocrats to use on the addle-brained.

The poll results that are most troubling here is that Obama’s approval is rising, even on specific issues like foreign affairs and the economy - the two issues he is currently bungling big time. Clearly a dfisconnect bewteen the American electorate and reality.

Here in Pennsyltucky the Dems are absolutely bombarding the airwaves with ads attacking Romney and other Republicans for supporting “the outsourcing of our jobs”.

Never mentioning that NAFTA was signed into law by Bill Clinton, and the offshoring of jobs continued enthusiastically and unabated throughout 2 Democrat administrations. AAAAAAARRRRRGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!

The larger issue is that the press is effectively framing Romney as a bungler, someone who keeps tripping over his own....

At this point in the race, a bandwagon effect takes hold in all the undecideds: they want to go with the winner. It kills me to say it, but right now that looks like the effete, jug-eared mediocrity.

” in the short-term, these comments have dinged Romney pretty badly.’

They wouldn’t hurt so much if Romney would just charge forward with the theme of his remarks, dependent government vs individual responsibility and reward for achievement.
It should be the center point to his campaign.

I agree. Americans like to be on the winning team, no matter how dirty it wins.

Yep - this is one reason the left wants to ban public posting of "The TEN" - it undercuts their entire political platform...

It does Obama no good to have 70% of California, the left coast and East Coast, and then to lose by 10,000 votes in WI, KY, OH, VA, NC, NH, etc. Being popular would have elected Kerry.

Proves the power (and corruptness) of the establishment media. It is 24/7 pro Obama/anti Romney. And it's pretty scary. He's standing at 50% with a train wreck of a record.

What happens if he actually wins and gets some good economic news in a 2nd term? He could be in the 65% approval area - based on the media.

News report today are that the Inauguration preparations and construction are underway at the Capital now.

2013 inaugural ceremony to be pushed back a day

By David Jackson, USA TODAY
Updated 2012-03-28 7:14 PM

By Robert Deutsch, USA TODAY
Jan. 20 — presidential Inauguration Day — is a Sunday, so all the pomp and ceremony will be pushed back a day.

As is tradition, the winner of the November election will be sworn in privately at noon on Jan. 20, but the actual ceremony will be on Jan. 21.

The office of Sen. Charles Schumer, elected to serve as chairman of the 2013 Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies, noted “this is the seventh time in U.S. history that the constitutionally mandated inauguration date has fallen on a Sunday.”

I can attest to the fact the Obama campaign is still waging an air campaign here in NC. And the lithe and lovely Michelle was just in Greensboro the other day.

They are not running in NH either. And this is a complaint in many swing states.

Obama pummeled Romney all summer. And the strategy was that Romney would carpet bomb after the convention. Now the word is they are waiting for early October. I hope it is not too late by then.

Virginia is bombarded with ads from both sides; probably a bit more from Obama, but plenty of Romney.

If Romney has to spend money on ads in North Carolina, he’s already lost. I’m sure it’s a tactical decision.

I guess I remember 2008 when McCain and Palin were up too, only to lose by 14,000 votes.

And it just isn't NC; I am hearing from a lot of people in swing states that Obama continues to dominate Romney in the ad wars.

I think you are right. Romney is going to win in a landslide. Our country is in the worst shape it has been since the Great Depression and this fool of a Prez has spent more money in 3 years than GWB in 8....and things are getting drastically worse, which most people realize.
You need to turn off the propaganda media if it is screwing with your head this much newb.

If the left truly believed that this ‘was over’, or even that they were winning, they wouldn't be relying on techniques such as ‘demoralization’ and Manchurian internet games to try to bolster their chances.
