The five point spread is great but its obama stagnating in the low 40's that's even more telling of how this election will play out.

I agree. Expect a big swing to the middle from the anointed one over the next few months.

I don't read too much into July polls. Wait until after the conventions.

I agree he's going to have to temporarily change his spots. I just don't think its going to resonate with voters. I don't see him adding much to that 44% going forward to November.

Both camps are pretty sure of themselves for victory.

Won't happen.

Clinton had Dick Morris who developed the strategy of triangulation (move to the center).

Obama's advisors are hard left and instead of folding the bad hand he keeps doubling down.

His strategy depends on getting out his base (unions, AA, Hispanics who support amnesty and essentially open borders, LGBT, Hollywood, and the liberal elite) and hoping he can grab enough swing states to win.

Yeah I find this odd also. He has taken a stand/opinion on almost every toxic issue out there

At first I was reading into this as bravado and courage? But now I'm wondering if it's just an attempt to draw Romney out in the
open, so his snipers have a clearer shot.

Consider this:
- I don't recall Obama calling for gun control in the Fort Hood, or Tuscon shootings.
- Never heard a peep on immigration until just recently
- Ditto on gay marriage.

The Obama campaign appears to be drawing on/using up the Presidents capital as a 'likable' person, to go at this issues and challenge Mitt.

Is it working? I dunno.

He also moved to the center almost two years before the elections of 1996. It was in January 1995 when he declared that the "era of big government" was over. If Obama were to suddenly become more moderate this close to the election, Romney would have a field day with ads claiming that Obama is pandering and will say and do anything to get re-elected.

FIFY!

I doubt it. This election is going to be about getting the base out for both sides. Most people have their minds made up on Obama already. It's literally about the lesser of two evils.

All this after Obama spends big bucks in July.

Not a good indicator for him. He's going to depend on motivating his base while Romney undermines his support among independents. He's literally being chased to the far left.

5 points is huge. I think it may even widen.

Otto, why you left out Fla. Wisc.

This is only the beginning of the Kings fall!!!

1% in Va. and 2% Ohio

I would consider that margin some what of a dead heat?

Thats both on a down swing for obama , wouldn't you say ?

Dropping almost weekly, from what i'm seeing!!

You can't poll dead people and pets, so this doesn't mean much.
