In other words, the dam that O’s built among early voters simply isn’t tall enough to hold back the red tide next Tuesday.
Neither is the fire wall Obama built able to hold back the tide. Yesterday I posted on how the tide was turning and making states like PA, MI, MN and even OR purple. These are not the only places where we see the 2012 wave rising to wipe out the 2008 wave. There are numerous signs of a rising tide in the bluest of blue states:
In 2008, Connecticut went for Obama by 22 points. The latest Mason-Dixon poll has Obama up by just 7.
In 2008, Michigan went for Obama by 17 points. The latest Detroit News poll has Obama up by just 3.
In 2008, Minnesota went for Obama by 11 points. The latest Minneapolis Star Tribune poll has Obama up by just 3.
In 2008, Oregon went for Obama by 16. The latest Oregonian poll has Obama up just 6.
In 2008, Pennsylvania went for Obama by 10. The latest Morning Call poll has Obama up by just 3.
No doubt Obama is sinking and the 2010 insurgent vote is still out there. And if you think the last round of polls were indicative of an Obama resurgence, suggest you read this insightful post by Bob Krumm
