Obama's Numbers Heading South
Not to mention Obama's dismal performance on the news programs last night...
He took a 7-point hit overnight in the Rasmussen. The audacity of verbosity may have mortally wounded Barack.
Maybe it is a statistical anomaly.
But the Rasmussen Poll reported: Obama’s 8-point lead on Friday shrank to 1 point today, and I really don’t see where Hillary scored a touchdown overnight.
I do see where Obama’s connection to the Rev. Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright received over 1,000 mentions in news articles in the last 24 hours (thanks Google).
Is Obama’s apology enough? I mean, how do you divorce yourself from a man you quoted in the title of your autobiography?
These numbers go up and down on the Rasmussen. But when a 50-42 lead melts to 46-45 overnight, you hope it is a blip.
And not that guy who was your mentor for 20 years.
