11. They have RMoney up 49 - 47 among "Likely Voters"

And that does horrify me (and baffles me as well). I don't see how Pres. O's approval rating can be so high yet be behind in the election polling.

I guess I fell into the trap of many others, expecting a cake-walk to victory in November and expecting the repugs to slither away without putting up a fight since their candidate looked so bad. As it turns out their "October Surprise" was a pile of lies that it's going to take forever to refute.

edit to add: Of course a composite nationwide number doesn't mean squat since we have the wonderful electoral college. I'd like to see a breakdown of where the likely voters are who changed their minds to give RMoney a supposed lead. I suspect that RMoney probably merely upped his lead in deep red states that really don't affect the outcome, but haven't seen any data to back that up.
