Recently I saw one of those informal internet polls on Yahoo asking if Obama should be elected if the unemployment rate stayed above 8%. The result was a 70% NO vote. Almost without exception the comments section of Yahoo articles about Obama or the economy are also emphatically negative toward his re-election. On November 12th I, along with the vast majority of Americans, want to hear MSNBC's Chris Mathews singing "The Thrill Is Gone".

Slightly encouraging, I agree. BUt my concern is that any kind of web survey is likley skewed in the favor of Conservatives since they usually pop up on either political or "REAL" news pages.

Personally, I think only citizens who have actually paid income taxes at least once in the past five years should be permitted to even register.

A whole raft of economic survey information released recently shows a leaky economy is threatening to help sink Obama’s reelection chances this fall.

On Thursday, pollster Rasmussen published results of their daily consumer confidence numbers showing the index at its lowest point at any time since the start of 2012.

“The Rasmussen Consumer Index,” writes Rasmussen, “which measures consumer confidence on a daily basis, fell another point on Thursday to the lowest level of 2012. At 78.5, confidence is down three points from a week ago, down three points from a month ago and down 11 points from three months...
