  •  D+3 sample is fairly conservative given (16+ / 0-)

    the enthusiasm gap that currently favors Democrats at the Presidential level.  I believe there was more energy for McCain than there is for Romney among the GOP electorate.  Palin was a big reason why, but McCain was also a much better candidate than Romney.  That Romney sucks as a candidate is something that Democrats and Republicans can agree on.  Usually that stuff translates into lower turnout for the party with the less than inspiring candidate.

    Alternative rock with something to say:

    •  This time, you could be right (9+ / 0-)

      because whites were overrepresented by 3% in this poll as opposed to 2008 and blacks were underrepresented by 3% in this poll.

      If we get a little closer to a 2008 electorate Obama will completely lock the state down with a month to go. Romney has almost impossible structural disadvantages here, as well as Ohio

    •  Undecideds are already Obama voters (5+ / 0-)

      If Brown hasn't converted them already with his faux charm and moderation, I doubt he will by election day. Warren 54-46.

    •  McCain was indeed (1+ / 0-)

      a much better candidate, although clearly, not able to stand up to Obama. But then he was carrying GWB on his shoulders to a much greater degree than Romney is. And I agree, there was much more enthusiasm for McCain, particularly coming our of his convention.

      I really do think that Mitt's Libya debacle was his "Lehman" moment, as others have stated, and I get a big kick out of republican pundits who claim no one was paying attention and it will all be forgotten in a week.

      No one ever forgot that McCain wanted to put the election on hold so he could run to Washington and deal with the problem. And no one ever forgot Obama's famous response.
