Good Moorrrniiing America. The latest Associated Press-GfK poll has Obama up 52 to 37 among all adults and an approval rating also over fifty. Their likely voter screen makes the race a statistical heat, giving Obama just a one point lead, so the importance of GOTV cannot be overstated.
Still, 10% among registered voters? Wow! And this was before the famous video.
Buoyed by good mojo coming out of last month's national political conventions, Obama's approval rating is back above 50 percent for the first time since May, and the share of Americans who think the country is moving in the right direction is at its highest level since just after the death of Osama bin Laden in May 2011.Do you think it is reasonable to have a 10 point lead among RVs and only a 1 point among LVs?
The poll results vividly underscore the importance that turnout will play in determining the victor in Campaign 2012: Among all adults, Obama has a commanding lead, favored by 52 percent of Americans to just 37 percent for Romney. Yet among those most likely to vote, the race is drum tight.
In any case, good news to wake up to.
