A brutal day of state polls for Romney this morning. A reader wrote into say that she thinks that once Romney goes below 20% in that Nate Silver prediction thingy, the right will really start to freak. One-in-five just sounds bad.
Does anyone doubt that if it were Romney rather than Obama who led by three points, the creed recited daily on MSNBC would stress the inexact nature of polling and the overwhelming power of conservative millionaires and billionaires?
Should be interesting. Perception matters in politics and if the perception is that Romney’s a can’t-win loser, it makes it harder for him to come back.
