3. It's not MY starting point

I dont necessarily agree with everything in the column. I didn't write it. I saw it on the Huffington Post and thought it had a few good points and decided to post it here.

I think what the author is getting at is that Obama is beginning to look more decisive and Presidential compared to Romney. I think the author is right that Obama has been able to get stronger over the past 6 months.

Let's not fool ourselves into saying that Obama has always had high numbers. Remember that in mid to late 2011, Obama was behind Romney in the polls, and had approval ratings in the low 40's. It was looking very bad for his re-election. Those trends reversed themselves over the first half of 2012.
