  •  There is NO WAY (0+ / 0-)

    to put a positive spin on this.  I believe Romney now leads.

    The one thing to hang your hat on is the job approval numbers - which have not moved much in state polling.

    •  approval numbers don't matter (0+ / 0-)

      if you are losing the election...so i am not impressed. I don't think there is a precedent for this. i said since a few days ago ( and people called me out on it ) that people seemed to be looking for an excuse to abandon Obama, and he gave them one. Not a real good one, but an excuse nonetheless. it's all they needed. This one is a kick in the balls because I really thought this was headed in the right direction, no praying for a miracle like Kerry or Gore. Obama needs a miracle. he needs Romney to shit himself on stage. Don't bet on it.

      •  There is a VERY high correlation (1+ / 0-)

        between job approval and incumbent Presidential vote.

        A sitting President has never lost with an approval rating of over 49.  Ever.

        Obama is not going to collapse.

        thought some of that dissipated in the last day , i guess not ? You have been feeling consistently discouraged this entire week then> No bright spots at all?

        This is why I cannot come here right before I go to volunteer to GOTV. But having said that, I speak too broadly come to thnk of it. As the majority of people here are optimistic and doing tons of GOTV and keep my spirits up.  

        LeftAngler and FlaDem, I hope you still are GOTV despite polling and that you are able to find some motivation and energy when needed?
