120. You moved the goalpost yourself
You claimed voters are deciding with their ballots that growing concerns about Obama are trumped by concerns about Clinton. When the trajectory disproved this you moved the goalpost to counting 30+ contests that occurred before his favorability rating tanked and concerns about him on a variety of issues grew. To "prove" the concerns are having no effect you had to go back to a time when those concerns were much less common, an implicit admission that they are having an affect because you could not point to his results since his favorablity rating has tanked, due to voters learning more about him and increasingly not liking him as they learn more about him.
Who "won" this race?
