  •  If you assume everybody is voting on the economy (0+ / 0-)

    But that's not been happening, health care, Medicare, social security, and immigration have each been consistently about 10-15% each of the electorate. Obama is winning on all of them. If the margins close on the economy--Romney <10%, Obama will have a slight 2-3% lead. That's where the race was all summer. The Dem convention actually put Obama into a slight lead on the economy, hence he opened up a more significant lead. The debate brought it back to where it was. (The stable baseline where Obama still wins). The jobs numbers may bring it back to Obama being far ahead. The west coast gas fiasco may bring it back in Romney's direction. But the key is the election is bein fought within parameters where Obama is always going to win, it's just the margin that is in question.
