    In the time since Romney Picked Ryan, on RCP Obama has gone from plus 4.7 to plus 4.

    If we are to Believe Democrats who are telling us they are so Happy Ryan is the Pick, and Romney basically threw the Election by Picking him. Then shouldn't there be a Bump in Obama's Poll numbers and not a .7 point drop?

    Also should note Obama's Number has not Dropped, Romney's went up .7, Which means it was Undecideds that Ticked it up.

    Reagan was behind Carter by 9 points at this time.

    Depends on which polls your looking at. People are still checking out Ryan with all the bells and whistles. In about a month is when we will really start to see which way the polls are truly going.

    Though the Obama Presidency and Re-election Campaign have been a lot like Carter, I don't think the Comparison is really Relevant. Reagan Gained a Lot of Ground in the Final Months because of Public Reaction to Carters Handling of the Iran Hostage Crisis.

    That's why I will only ever post RCP, Because it's an Average of 10 Polls.


    Not that said, My question is simple, Could one of you Dems who have been telling us By Picking Ryan Romney Lost the Election Answer it for me. Why has Obama's Lead on RCP shrank by .7 of a point in the time Since the Announcement instead of Growing?

    That's really easy..............

    the Dem Insiders lie

    the Dem Lemmings suck the Koolaid and spread the lie

    I've never seen anyone look so depressed and defensive as David Axelrod desperately spewing out the Ryan BS this Sunday.

    The O is already well on his way to obscurity.

    You'll start seeing a more obvious upward swing for the Comeback kids by the end of this week.

    Obama's already winning. He doesn't need a Ryan bump to run up the score.

    It's still summer. Vacationtime yet, and kids are getting ready to go back to school; so polls this time of year in a run-up to a general election are less reliable then reading Tarot cards or casting turtle shells.
