    but the 4th & 5th were Obama's worst of the entire cycle.

    •  Were they? (0+ / 0-)

      That's what we thought originally, but then the new PPP poll this week was even worse than last week's, including a completely terrible Sunday sample... I'm guessing that Sunday sample was the worst day of polling so far, and there was no news event to really coincide with it, meaning that it was likely an outlier day, but I'd rather have outlier good days than outlier bad ones.

         I don't like to unskew polls relating to party affiliation but PPP's poll had 44% conservative(too  many IMHO) and just 16% liberal(too low IMHO).

          The thing is just about every poll showed Obama's worst days to have been the 10/4-5 ,state as well as national whereas even PPP's state polls showed good news for Obama this past weekend. It does seem Gallup & PPP's national have shown some problems this past weekend but Reuter's, Rand,IBD ,Politoc and ABC showed some good signs for the president.
