Not good news for the incumbent. Despite all the free campaign air time the MFM is giving him. Despite his record setting number of tax-payer funded fundraisers. Despite the fact that he’s never stopped campaigning (which means he also never started leading).
As more-and-more Conservatives and Republicans (two separate circles in a Ven diagram, with an ever-decreasing intersection) coalesce around the GOP nominee, the more troubling these polls will become for Obama.
Five days ago, O led by seven. Five days before that, Romney led by one. Four days before that, Romney led by five. And two weeks before that, Obama led by four. Either this poll has a lot of static in the signal or swing voters are having some sort of collective nervous breakdown over the terrible, terrible options that lie before them. The day may be coming, my friends, when the Gallup tracker proves too unreliably fidgety to justify devoting an easy-traffic post like this one to covering it. But that day is not today.
Liberals will be quick to point out that polls are crap…until they find one that has their guy ahead. In which case they’ll flip faster than…well, than Mitt Romney on most issues.
