Latest PJ Media Column (‘Wake Up, Mainstream Media: If Tide Is Shifting, It’s in Romney’s Direction’) Is Up
It will go up here at BizzyBlog on Wednesday (link won’t work until then) after the blackout expires.
Many belated thanks to the folks at PJM for their prompt posting of the column.
“If the tide is shifting” update:
- Romney is down by only two points in Pennsylvania, according to a Pittsburgh Tribune poll released on Saturday. Its sample is +6 Democrats, which for the Keystone State may be accurate. Other polls show Barack Obama with a much larger lead. I think Romney taking Pennsylvania is a nearly prohibitive long shot — but if he does, it’s over, because it leans far more blue in general than every current toss-up state.
- “Unskewed Polls,” a web site which adjusts published polls to reflect Scott Rasmussen’s party affiliation results, shows Romney up by an average of 7.8 points. Though it’s arguably overcooked in Romney’s direction — Rasmussen has national party affiliation as +4.3 GOP, while Gallup has it at Dems +3 before that party’s convention — it certainly shows that the “Romney’s finished” meme is sheer fantasy.
