  •  Polls have become partisan tools. (6+ / 0-)

    Just like campaign ads, they are used to manipulate the electorate (us) and try to throw the other campaign off their game.  Your reaction to bad polls might be to work harder,and that's great, but most people react the opposite way, by panicking and going into despair and inaction.  

    The media is intentionally blowing up a legitimate polling bounce and hack pollsters are spitting out more polls creating a feedback loop  designed to create panic and change what was for Romney a devastating few weeks.  Voters pick up o the panic, which is an unattractive quality and diminishes support which creates another feedback loop.

    The best thing to do know is take this bounce in stride, project confidence, and stick to the plan because we are winning.

    We have the elite, smart people on our side.
