NBC/WSJ has new numbers, and they are pretty freakin' awesome.

Obama 49
Romney 44

Obama 50
Romney 43

Obama 49
Romney 44

As if the battleground numbers weren't looking bad enough for Mitt Romney already, these results are nothing short of disastrous.

In the relevant Senate races:

Bill Nelson (D) 51
Connie Mack (R) 37

Sherrod Brown (D) 49
Josh Mandel (R) 42

Tim Kaine (D) 46
George Allen (R) 46

Good news, good news and expected news. Who are these Obama-Allen voters in Virginia, I wonder? I'll dig more into this and other recent polling later tomorrow, but for now, I figured we could all use a little happy dance right now.

And note that since this poll was conducted between Sept. 9-11, the calls pre-dated Romney's smirking debacle. So how much do you want to bet that Republicans wish they would've nominated Rick Sant—uh, Newt Gingr—uh, Herman C—gah, Rick Per—the hell with it. There's a reason their bigwigs sat this one out.

The biggest moron in this race award goes to Paul Ryan, for committing career suicide by shacking up with their disaster of a nominee.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
