RUSH: Right on schedule and as predicted, yesterday a news flash from the Wall Street Journal. Guess what? The election is now tied.
So the days of attempting to shift and move public opinion are now dwindling in place of the polls reflecting public opinion. There's still a little attempt to manipulate it, though. The Gallup poll as of yesterday, Romney back up at seven points, 52-45. And so today Reuters is out with a story attacking Gallup. He-he-he-he-he.
Among likely voters, the candidates are now tied 47-47 in a race that appears on track to be one of the closest in US history." Remember, now, this poll, a late surge in support for Romney. Wait a minute. This is after the second debate where Obama was supposed to have the bounce. After the second debate where Obama's supposed to have the bounce they put this story out saying "after a late surge in support for Romney."
But there's something fascinating about this poll. As you know, Obama is not talking about his second-term agenda. By design and on purpose, he is not talking about it, and you and I know why. He's not talking about it because he doesn't dare. He doesn't dare admit that it's more of the same.
However, there's a problem, and it's in the same NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. There's a question in that poll, in the internals. I have it right here in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers. "If reelected, do you want President Obama to make major changes?" Sixty-two percent say YES! Sixty-two percent of the respondents in the poll say that they do not want more of the same.
Sixty-two percent of a poll that has Obama and Romney tied at 47%, say they want a change in direction for the country. If that's true, Obama's toast! Why would anybody vote for a guy who's not discussing his second-term agenda when they want a change? Why would you vote for a guy...? If 62% of the American people want a change, you have to assume they're unhappy with what's happening now.
