    .

    One of the partisan blabbers (they all run together for me) yesterday was talking about a "Romney landslide". Right now the polls are neck and neck, with Obama having the Electoral College advantage. So what is the theory here - my only guess is that Romney hasn't spent a lot of money yet, and that he'll build momentum after the conventions.

    Is that the thinking here?

    I don't pay attention to polls. To many variables.

    This one could be correct or not. Hard to tell.

    If Barry's campaign folks are having doubts this early then its possible Romney could win in a landslide.

    I, for one, hope so.

    The campaigns are constantly gathering info from every state and getting info and trends fed to them. They know how they are tracking on areas they are supposed to be strong and weak and if support is rising or falling.

    They also watch approval ratings in numerous categories and various groups. These are markers and indicators on how they are doing in certain subset groups. They could be seeing something in all the data that is disturbing or trending badly.

    I sincerely hope so.

    These guys have got to stay on there toes. Romney has a vast amount of money and a lazy Obama camp could mean a Romney victory.

    I dunno. Most of the polls are something like 47-45, with one guy or the other in the lead, and I have a hard time believing that so many people are still undecided. Should be interesting to see if all those ads can move the needle this far into the game.

    Not really.

    When a POTUS has approval below 50%, history says the undecideds flock to the challenger.

    Barry is in deep, deep.... Obama. They all know it.
