  •  A 70 yr old Democratic friend who has been (16+ / 0-)

    involved in campaigns and even worked for a few for 5o years says it is too early to panic and he thinks some voters have election PTSD of sorts because of 2000, 2004 and even 2010. He said it is because of the losses we suffered that were cruel, bitter, and harsh.  And then what happened in 2000 has scarred a lot of Democrats where panic sets in more quickly than it would for Republicans.

    He said to wait till early this coming week to mid week to see better polling. Granted, he may be very wrong but he is one of these who has studied and beein involved in all of this for half a century. He says I am going to be cheered up and surprised within a week as he feels Romney has peaked..he said there is every reason to believe this will be Mitt;s best week ever..but we still have 3 weeks to go.

    •  I just talked a fellow liberal off the cliff (4+ / 0-)

      today and basically said what your friend said.  Romney is at a high right now eventually he will lose some of the support he has again and fall back into the position hes been in all year.  I cant believe Obama will go from one week looking at an electoral college landslide to losing over one debate.  That would be completely unprecedented.

      I think some sort of "let's buck the fuck up" realisation must have occured post-Oct 3rd and Joe Biden was the first return salvo, he made Ryan look like an inexperienced wanker who is not qualified to be a heartbeat away from power. Also since then Obama has looked good on stump, I sense they recognised the mistakes of last week...

      I'll use a soccer analogy;
      Obama 1 Romney 1 [away goal]
      Ryan 0 Biden 3 [3 awesome away goals]
