    is bad for him. I'd imagine it will suck up a couple days more media oxygen, and is likely to stick in voters' minds, especially women's, through election day.

    The momentum narrative is kinda laughable, as Romney has basically plateaued in his support from almost 2 weeks ago. What was a little concerning was that we seemed to have leveled off too - essentially tied with him nationally, and at a level lower than where we were. Today suggested to me that that dynamic may be changing in our favor.

      because it is a nationwide story, building on the Akin and Ryan anti-choice narrative.

      It may even be significant enough to put an end to any remaining mitt-mo-mentum.

      When a candidate starts talking about their momentum, it is so reminiscent of 2004's "Joe-Mentum" - a farce.
