Daily Kos Poll Has Romney Leading Obama by 2
Yup, lots of little Kossacks are gonna’ need to be put on suicide watch when they wake up this morning and discover that even their favorite resource for Lefturd propaganda has to admit that Romney is kicking Obama’s butt:
Daily Kos/SEIU State of the Nation poll: Romney takes the lead in post-debate period
Romney 49 (45)
That’s a pretty disastrous six-point net swing in just a week, and the first time we’ve ever had Romney in the lead. It is inline with all other national polling showing Romney making gains in the wake of his debate performance last week.
Several other polls, Pew chief among them, saw a big increase in the number of respondents self-identifying as Republicans—a sign of increased intensity on that side of the aisle. Our poll confirms that intensity boost. Last week, 65 percent of conservatives were “very excited” about voting this year. This week, it’s 74 percent. That’s a significant shift. Liberals also gained, but only marginally so, from 68 to 70 percent.
Clearly, none of this is irreversible, and it’ll bear watching the daily trackers to see if Romney continues to fade or not. And obviously, next week’s numbers will further clarify the shape of the race.
Regardless, it shows that Obama’s debate performance was an epic blunder. Romney gave his partisans a reason to get excited about him and they’ve responded. It should come as no surprise that people like to fight for people who are fighting for them.Explore posts in the same categories: politics
