Weekend featured comment
"Too many "Romney's finished" comments and stories. It's highly unlikely that Obama maintains a 4-5 point national lead (which is indicitive of an electoral blowout) all the way to election day. The Romney national number that we're seeing now (still 44-45% after having run an ineffective, error-ridden campaign to this point) represents his true floor - the hard core anti-Obama vote. And that floor is pretty high. Romney now has to go about the business of reversing the damage from the "47%" tape. It will be very interesting to hear how he addresses it on wednesday." - ashenthorn
