    Then, Bush had already had over 50% support in the recent past and Kerry's high had flirted briefly with 48% after the Edwards selection. So Kerry needed to steel away voters who had recently expressed a preference for Bush. That was a tall order.

    Now it's the other way around, though Obama hasn't quite hit 50. He basically just needs to re-energize or win back voters who supported him as recently as 2-3 weeks ago, and then persuade some undecideds. Romney needs to win and/or keep these recent Obama supporters. His task is a good deal more difficult than Obama's.

    (I guess in theory Romney could do it by hoovering up all the undecideds, but that would be highly, highly unlikely.)
