"Warning Sign" - Talking Heads
Sorry for goofing off all weekend. I was trying to recharge the batteries a bit.
- Some seemingly very good news from Ohio, the state that Romney simply cannot afford to lose. Obama has maintained a small but steady polling lead in the Buckeye State throughout the summer and this poll by PPP has his lead at 5%. More interestingly, the Romney camp seems to be suggesting that Obama is ahead by even more than that. The story here is by Mike Allen, who certainly could be fairly described as the Village Idiot, but he is very well connected in Republican circles.
It will be interesting to see what the polls later in this week look like, now that the conventions are over and the terms of the debate staked out pretty starkly.
I also see that Obama outraised Romney this month. I have seen a lot of nervousness reflected on the Democratic side in comments about the Romney financial edge. This should allay some of those. I also continue to subscribe to the notion that there is a huge law of diminishing returns on these thirty second spots. Living in DC, we are bombarded with ads intended for the northern Virginia audience and I feel like they just become background noise after a while.
Must run and do the lawyer thing. In the meantime, jump in.
