  •  Yeah, that question is never any good (2+ / 0-)

    The "more likely" and "less likely" questions, every poll for every election, always poll with answers on both sides way below the two candidates' vote shares, and a plurality or even majority always saying "makes no difference."

    And yet, attacks and personal traits and issue positions certainly matter.

    That poll question just isn't a good way to teasing it out.

    Better questions are on favorability overall, and favorability toward specific tested traits.  Romney clearly is underwater on Bain, that's without doubt.  That's why Chicago keeps attacking, and Romney had to deviate from his own master plan to air some response ads.
