Another bs headline: Obama leads in polls despite negative campaigning
http://www.nbc.com/news-sports/msnbc-video/2012/07/obam... /

They are BOTH campaigning negatively. Romney is attacking Obama on Obama's job performance and some dubious issues and Obama is doing the same to Romney.

In this poll, Romney had something like a 34% overall positive rating and a 40% negative rating, yielding a net negative rating.

Lawrence O'Donnell tried to make a big deal of that last night. Someone else noted that Obama does not get high ratings on the economy, however, and that may be THE issue in this election, so he would not put money on either candidate at this point.

I still think Obama will win because Romney has painted himself as an "extreme" conservative.

But don't, because I like to use that line.

And I got pictures to back up it up the last time I was in the Capitol building, too.

2. we (Dem Party) are too far to the right, and trying to please the corp's and banks, and we can only
hope that Pres. Obama just humiliates Mittens in the debates, and we get the House back...

We have to get the House back!

3. I don't know how the House will fare. If we get it back, it won't be on Obama's coattails, unless

something happens to the polls between now and November.

We have many Senators coming up for re-election, too.

Election day and night may be nailbiters all around.

I remember so clearly rejoicing over the phone with a friend on the West Coast as the 2006 results came in. House, Senate, Governors. That was a fantastic night. Ditto 2008.

Indiana for a Democratic President, for pete's sake. (The Obama campaign had wanted to send my West Coast friend to Indiana to work for Obama and he had refused to go, thinking it was a lost cause and therefore a waste of his summer, something he regretted bitterly on election night 2008.)

Good times.
