Drudge in a banner headline and in scarlet letters:
B A C K L A S H: POLL: OBAMA TRAILS ROMNEY 7%
Well the answer to whether endorsing gay marriage is all that great a political idea seems to have been revealed rather swiftly. The fate of the world, American foreign policy and economic management being determined in this way is quite incredible. Obama’s own polling must have told him how badly he was slipping because it did seem a very large risk to take a punt on this issue, specially after the vote in North Carolina.
This might well have been the dirtiest campaign of all time had there been any serious dirt to find about Mitt Romney. But if all you have is tying a dog in his basket to the roof of your car when going on holiday and being mean to a fellow high school student when you’re 16, you haven’t really got all that much dirt to throw.
Drudge provides no details as yet but will happily forward as they come to hand.
The Details: It’s the Rasmussen Daily Tracking Poll so it’s one of the good ones.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows Mitt Romney earning 50% of the vote and President Obama attracting 43% support. Four percent (4%) would vote for a third party candidate, while another three percent (3%) are undecided.
