    But I must say, this eerily reminds me of 1979.

    Early poll after early poll said "Carter beats Reagan".  Rather handily, I might add.

    It's early, you're right.  But "holding up" sounds bad to me.

    After it is perceived the President "surrendered" to Republicans over the debt ceiling, which will exacerbate job loss, I suspect "holding up" may swiftly change to "just behind".

    And then we get to see Obama "negotiate" all over again in November and December.  This looks bad to me.

    We shall see.

    To a Democrat, "democracy" means "free elections." To a Republican, "free markets."

    •  well anything less than a 45 point lead looks bad (0+ / 0-)

      to us. We're Democrats.
