Oh boy, put the liberals on suicide watch because this news is going to flip them out:
The candidates for President are Democrat Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney. If the election was today, who would you vote for?Obama 47 (49)
Romney 49 (45)
That’s a pretty disastrous six-point net swing in just a week, and the first time we’ve ever had Romney in the lead. It is inline with all other national polling showing Romney making gains in the wake of his debate performance last week.
Yep, that is disaster because President Obama is in the dead-duck range, historically. The President is too close to the 45% level which no incumbent can survive, and Romney is just under the 50% mark, which also is highly predictive of a win. Late deciders usually break to the challenger and against the incumbent. So this is a horrible poll for Team Obama. And this from a left-wing organization (KOS-SEIU)!
