1. Same is true for his poll numbers.

I don't have a lot of faith in polls (especially this early) but it's interesting to look at so I check the poll average every day.

Obama is trending up and Rmoney is trending down so I think the Bain/tax return attacks are having an affect.

3. Didn't Intrade royally botch the SCOTUS ruling on the ACA?

Granted, theose are two completely different events and decision methods.

The comparison of Intrade trends to polling trends might be of some interesting value, though.

4. I think John Roberts

defied any odds completely with his decision on the ACA...only two or three
legal scholars saw that coming, if I remember correctly.(might have been more)

I am just happy to click on Intrade when I hear on the news about ANY poll
that puts rmoney behind!

5. All this is before The Deluge of negative ads however. . .

Once that starts after the convention, when Romney outspends Obama 10 to 1, or whatever, people will begin to see Obama as the Antichrist.
