My only disappointment in Fox News' latest poll is that it surveyed registered, and not likely, voters. Nonetheless the poll's results are still a delight to read, and what's more, Fox News' coverage of the poll's results positively exalt one to intoxicated heights of snickering ecstasy:
Mitt Romney has had a tough couple of weeks on the campaign trail -- and it shows in the latest Fox News poll....
The president would take 49 percent of the vote compared to Romney's 40 percent in a head-to-head matchup if the election were held today....
The Obama campaign has spent heavily on advertising attacking Romney’s time at Bain Capital and his tax returns. And it appears to be working.
Nine points--that's a virtually unbeatable number when translated into an electoral-college count. Most head-to-head polling statistics from a nationwide perspective are insultingly useless--It's Obama up by two! It's Romney down by one!--but generally any national lead in the 8-10+ point range reflects a sufficiently uniform advantage in requisite battleground states to spell a certain electoral-count victory for the (+) guy and utter doom for the (-).
Like I said, it would have been marginally more agreeable had Fox surveyed likely voters. Yet the recent spate of similar polling of similar trend, plus Big Mo Obama's evident Mojo, as well as Mitt Romney's manifest determination to engineer the absolute worst presidential campaign in American political history--all are conspiring to deny the pseudoconservative Barbarians the keys to executive power.
And that's something, at least, in these otherwise godawful drifts and doldrums.
