  •  Only a national shift can save Rmoney (3+ / 0-)

    assuming President Obama ranges from tied to a nontrivial lead in all these states, I don't think a state-by-state effort will be enough for the GOP; Rmoney has to do something that will shift a uniform 2-4% of the electorate to his side, which will then translate into flipping many of these states.

    Just released: 96,000 jobs, 8.1% unemployment. Unfortunately that's not a positive for us, but it's survivable. Now it's all about the debates - that's Rmoney's last chance to move the country to his side.

    •  actually it is a positive (7+ / 0-)

      because for most people they will not grasp the impact of 91,000 but will instead focus on the drop from 8.3 to 8.1

      remember there are TWO more reports to come out, since the data is released the first friday of the month, and in November that will be the 2nd, four days before the election.

      What we don't want is a rise either of the next two months.
