A simple thought experiment

| October 23, 2012

Consider the following hypothetical scenario: It’s two weeks before election day 2012. President Obama absolutely demolished Mitt Romney in the first debate and battled him to a near-draw in the second and third. The President has been leading Romney in the Gallup poll by several points for over a week (51-45, 52-45). The Rasmussen Poll, showing a tie for the last week, suddenly shifts to 50-46 in favor of Obama. Favorability polls show Romney underwater and Obama with a positive result.

What would the mainstream media and political commentators be saying about the election right now?

Exactly.  ..bruce w..
