Despite GOP & DINO out crys: Obama's attacks on Bain are working

NBC's Mark Murray breaks down a key part of the new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll showing an essentially unchanged presidential race, with 47 percent of registered voters favoring President Obama and 44 percent favoring Mitt Romney:

Among swing-state respondents in the poll – those living in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin – Obama leads Romney, 50 to 42 percent.
Also in these swing states, Romney’s favorability numbers have dropped, possibly reflecting the toll the negative Obama TV advertisements are having on the former Massachusetts governor in these battlegrounds.

A month ago, Romney’s favorable/unfavorable score stood at 34-38 percent nationally and 36-36 percent in the 12 swing states.

But in this latest survey, his national fav/unfav score is 33-39 percent and 30-41 percent in the swing states.

In addition, the poll shows that attitudes about Romney’s business background – a frequent target in Obama ads – also are more unfavorable in these battlegrounds.

As Murray points out, on a national basis Romney's business record is seen as a positive by 23 percent of registered voters and as a negative by 28 percent. But in the swing states, it's 18 percent positive to 33 percent negative. That may partly be a result of demographics and regional differences, but it's also reflects the fact that voters in swing states are getting exposed to more information about Romney's business record, both through local media coverage and television advertising.

13. Ed Rendell and all his ILK

are ASSES!!!


I'm sick of the meme that we shouldn't talk about someone earning a lot of dough as a bad thing. Well, IMHO, it is a BAD THING when there are terrible human consequences. IT IS IMMORAL. Period.

I'm not envious, I'm against GREED.

4. The commercials in Ohio about older workers losing health coverage are kick ass

The commercials don't go into the depths of the details of takeovers and corporate raiding. They stick to simple themes like factory closings and benefit cuts. President Obama is way on-message.

6. I knew they'd work from the beginning.

Any politician who disagreed probably had something to hide financially. I can't wait until November. Axelrod knows that he's doing.

8. The vid of the Penn state congress person saying VID was for Romney to win penn is what bothers

...me the most.

Then people will say ignore the exit polls again...

I pray Obama is up near the 20s in approval vs rMoney before November and they'll all have to pivot to keep congress...

Then we can really start kicking so butt
