I'm starting to actually become optimistic about Romney's prospects. Rasmussen today reports support for Romney at 47% verses 43% for Obama. This poll has had each candidate leading by a few points for the last month or so. But keep in mind a little poll history... In 1980 at this time, Carter and Reagan were very close in the polls. Carter had a 10 point or better lead throughout the spring and most of summer. Come September, the polls showed Carter slipping, but nothing too dramatic. Nothing that would indicate the landslide that occured in November. Without a doubt, it was the economy that sunk Carter. I'm betting on the same for Obama.
