“Republicans who want Mitt Romnay to win – who desperately want Barack Obama out of the race, had better hope that people like Karl Rove and others that have influence in this campaign start going to the candidate and getting in his face and saying ‘we’re investing a lot of time, a lot of effort and a lot of money in you buddy and you better get your stuff together, and the next time you go on a national Sunday show, you’d better have some answers. You’re not going to be able to coast into victory; you will coast into a 52 – 48 loss.’” – Joe Scarborough (Morning Joe). Even devoted partisan, Republican defender Mark Halperin stated, “The President has a meaningful lead and it’s not tied or within the margin of error.”
It seems reality has set in. Republican party members are publicly (and Mitt Romney’s team privately), acknowledging the “bump” the DNC received from their convention and the lack of one for the Republicans. Polls show Pres. Obama with 49% of the vote, and Mitt Romney with 44%. Even the Republican skewing Rasmussen Poll shows: Obama: 50% Romney: 45%.
Uh-oh, better ramp up the voter suppression guys!
