    Four years ago, the neverending Sawah RNC bounce, and McCain leading in OH, NV, CO, NC and FL... living that 2-3 weeks was a pile of shite.

    As for the national numbers? Romney's last [non tracker] lead was;

    ABC News/Wash Post;
    08/22 - 08/25    857 RV    4.0    46    47    Romney +1

    It's post Ryan, pre RNC and ABC/WaPo have given him around seven leads out of ten polls since January & two ties. Since that poll all the national numbers have been Obama by up to 7pts just as 2008.. And we stand today;

    09/18/2012    48.5    45.5
    09/18/2008    47.1    45.2

    Both trackers have swung for Willard for the majority of this cycle but he just can't get a lead from any pollster outwith the R Leaners, three of whom are unknown quantities to 2012; Purple Strategies, McLaughlin and Gravis and of course Ras are the only Romney+1 or +2 in the three states below. Just like McCain in Oct 2008 where he only eratically led with Fox & Ras by 1-2.... In fact, check out Romney's Aug-Sep leads in Ohio. Virginia. Florida the pattern? the leads are mostly those Republican Pollsters...

        Rasmussen is doing everything they can to keep the meme alive that this is a close race. I'd be willing to be large sums of money that they will come in line with the rest of the polls before November 6th so they can play this game again next time around.
