I am heartened by the Battleground Poll out this morning. Yes, the tie at 47 seems nail-bite worthy at first. But look inside.
Independents are Romney 47 – Obama 32. Apart from massive vote fraud, I can’t see how Obama can overcome that.
And those most likely to vote lean to Romney, which I consider more important than the tie at the poll’s top line:
The potentially more important number is a combination nationally of those who have already voted and those who call themselves “extremely likely” to vote. Romney leads this group by 3 percent, 51 percent to 48 percent.
And remember that early voters tend to be more Democrat.
By the way, I intend to tweet (The link is at the right also.) and/or live blog tonight. I figure I owe my readers the spectacle as a reward for putting up with me these past four years.
