The polls do not look good. No, they do not. Even if you toss out the outlier Gallup poll, the race shouldn’t be this close. It is beginning to feel like the Democrats were relying on tribalism and identity more than seeing this race as a referendum on Obama’s performance.
I’m looking around the web and it seems like a lot of people are in denial. They know there’s something wrong but they’re afraid to look or go to the doctor, hoping that come election day, it will have cleared itself up. I wouldn’t take that attitude if I were them. Romney may win this thing not because people genuinely want a Republican but because the Democrat is just so uninspiring and contemplating four more years of lackluster performance and capitulation to the Republicans is very depressing and may make them stay home.
The weird thing is that Obama’s campaign is appealing to Republicans and Independents while leaving the Democratic base demoralized. Who the heck does the Democratic party expect to come to their rescue?? The Lone Ranger? Are they going to work Bill Clinton into an early grave on the campaign trail?
Anyway, whatever it is, they’d better get on the stick. The Republicans sure look like they’re playing to win.
