27. He can call it what he wants, but the fact is that this

poll surveyed "likely voters," and not "registered voters."

Likely voters are motivated. I can be registered to vote and, if I'm white and live in the right neighborhood, I can skip voting for years and still be registered (if I'm of color and/or have a foreign-sounding name, I could vote religiously, in every primary and local election and still lose my privilege).

That said, we don't vote as a united nation, we vote state-by-state, but this poll just shows that the media meme that people won't vote for Obama because of the economy is as out-of-touch as Romney. People see changes happening despite Republican obstructionism and may, as a result of the War on Women, even gift Obama with a Democratic congress. (I may be dreaming on that last part).
