    before all the Koch Brothers and their ilk start spending like mad to inundate people with ads. 51-44 before any effects of the Euro crisis hit. Talking like 51-44 is a big deal at this stage of the game is folly. Oh and what makes you think the youth vote will be stronger for Obama this time around than the last?

    "I wish I could tell you, in the midst of all of this, that President Obama was waging the kind of fight against these draconian Republican proposals that the American people would like to see. He is not." -- Senator Bernie Sanders

    •  not just youth vote (0+ / 0-)

      Your going to see a surge in the minority vote as well in Nov. I don't know how much they showed up in the recall but I guarantee black and Latino voters will have a stronger showing in the fall. I say that cushion is still pretty strong, even if only half the youths who didn't vote in the recall vote in the fall. There will be a lot more people voting in the fall. Also, I really don't think that super pac ads will have much of an effect on people who have already made up their mind. He's been in office for 3 years, you either like him or you don't.

      which everybody cursed as inaccurate and the devil's work, predicted,...wait for it,...Walker 53-Barrett 46.

      A seven point win.

      All the other public polls had Walker at or around 50-53%.  Sounds like Barrett's "internals" were pure deception, also know as a crock of sh*t.  

      Reinforces my belief that if everyone is telling you one thing, and you dispute it,...well, the world's not crazy.
