It is really disturbing when your side loses its objectivity and shows signs of deep political denial. It makes them look just like liberals.
For example, the Romney camps are singing “Amen!” at a bunch of new polls out. Just check this out at Hot Air:
This makes three new polls showing him [Romney] either tied with Newt or back in the lead after Gingrich’s big post-South Carolina surge.
I am simply stunned at these claims as I showed in a comment on this post. The part I emphasized is mathematically wrong. Dead wrong.
Here is my comment on how ridiculous all this high-fiving really is:
Good lord folks, It is not the snapshot number but the trend [that matters]. Go to RCP and edutate [deliberate misspelling] yourself:
CNN/Time 1/13-17/12 = Romney +24
CNN/Time 1/22-24/12 = Romney +2
Losing 20% points in less than 2 weeks is not a good sign. And +2 is well within the Margin of Error (MoE).
Check out PPP:
PPP 1/14-16/12 = Romney +15
PPP 1/22-23/12 = Gingrich +5
Hmm, another 20% drop and outside the MoE. Are we all seeing the TREND now?
Rasmussen 1/11/12 = Romney +22
Rasmussen 1/22/12 = Gingrich +9
Wow – 30% point drop….
Are you political experts really going to stand by the idea Romney is coming back? Do you mind if we all have a good laugh at your expense????
Let me add one more nail to this coffin:
Quinnipiac 1/4-8/12 = Romney +12
Quinnipiac 1/19-23/12 = Romney +2
All data points to Romney losing ground, not rebounding.
Tomorrow I will post on why Romney – even as a legitimate and successful business owner – can still not be admired by Main Street voters and small business owners. It will expose another method for denial – generalities. Sadly for all these people, ignoring the inconvenient truths will not garner a win, it simply means you miss the coming wave and the ability to take it on.
