28. No... It isn't. And it's time to stop pretending otherwise.

(caveat - This is not to pretend that we're behind or that we will lose next month)

There is a way that the president should play this if the polls were lying and we were really still ahead by 4-5 points... And there's a way that he needs to respond if the "bounce" is real and we have a race on our hands.

What states should ad buys focus on? What issues should get the President's stump speech priority? What down-ballot races can he spend time on outside of battleground areas?

We were four touchdowns up in the third quarter but we threw an interception for a touchdown and then fumbled the kickoff return and gave up another seven points. Now they've recovers an onside kick and are in the red zone with ten minutes left to play.

Its ok to say that momentum has shifted ... because it has. The game isn't lost... We still have a lead... But we need to play like we need to regain the momentum... Not pretend that it never really happened.
