Only this time he didn’t. He’s still as dead as a dead dog can be.
Obama that is.
It is now four days since the belly aching buffoon announced his vote buying sop to illegal immigrants in which he unilaterally granted amnesty to 1.4 million illegal immigrants, thereby adding that number to America's already burgeoning roll of 21 million unemployed. You’d think by now there would have been a huge boost for the black messiah in the opinion polls but no, nothing, zip, zilch, nada.
Where the hell did it go?
The bounce in the polls, that is.
Rasmussen’s rolling three day presidential tracking poll shows a reduction in support for Obama and a surge in support for Romney over the last week. If Obama was going to get a lift from the Hispanic block you would have expected it to show by now. There should have been three days of improved support. Gallup, a seven day rolling average, obviously will take longer to fully react but, so far, shows no change in the president’s fortunes while Romney has improved. Hey, it wasn't supposed to work that way..
My pick is that Americans largely have switched off Obama and among those who have not, there is a backlash against his capricious bypassing of congress and, more importantly, the direct threat to American jobs in a time of dire economic distress. Maybe they just see “V for Vacuous.”
However, what is more important is the effect upon voting in those states with a large block of Hispanic voters: California, Arizona, Texas, New Mexico and Florida. It’s the electoral college votes that count for more than the national tally. A bit like FFP, where the states are the electorates.
Of these, Arizona and Florida appeared to be at risk for Obama and bear watching over the coming week or so. Current state poll results appear to be go back some weeks and therefore are of no value.
