    Romney Needs a Turnaround Artist
    How about Mitt Romney?
    By Mona Charen
    National Review Online


    Excerpt:

    Neil Newhouse, Romney’s pollster, attempted to soothe worried Republicans last week by stressing that the race remains extremely close. But the fact that Romney’s pollster isn’t worried is itself worrying. By rights, Romney should be ten points ahead. His campaign seems to think the bad economy will automatically win this race for the Republican.

    It isn’t as if voters are unaware that the economy stinks. Yet the morning after the Democratic convention, the dismal jobs report did not prevent Democrats from getting a bigger bounce than Republicans had received. Reflect that three and a half years of miserably high unemployment, slow growth, increasing poverty, falling labor-force participation, record-setting food-stamp dependence, and an average 5 percent decline in household income has not persuaded most voters to support Mitt Romney.

    Romney is only a few points ahead, but that is all he needs.

    What amazes me is that Obama will still get 47% of the vote.

    Guys, the conventions just ended. The campaign is just starting. Romney and Ryan are getting briefed on national security issues now. Which is going to make things even more interesting

    He is? Are you referencing ONLY Rasmussen? You must be as that is the ONLY national poll that shows Romney leading. Good luck with that.

    Sure. Why on earth would you put weight in polls which oversample Democrats by upwards of 10%?

    Shit economy and less that 50% approval for the incumbent. He is toast.

    LOL

    Why, do you think they'll leak state secrets?

    They don't need to leak state secrets. But I think being more informed than the President, who skips his briefings, is going to be a significant contrast.

    'University of Colorado Professors Ken Bickers and Michael Berry have quite a set of bragging rights up their sleeve – namely, they’ve devised a mathematical model of the Electoral College that has predicted every Presidential race correctly since Ronald Reagan won the Presidency in 1980.

    And despite recent polls showing the presidential race deadlocked both nationally and in key swing states, Bickers and Berry‘s model shows a race that isn’t even close. According to them, not only will Mitt Romney win, but he will win big, taking 320 Electoral Votes to President Obama’s 218 – a result almost as decisive as President Obama’s win against Senator John McCain in 2008.'
