When the polls are Dem +7 or Dem +9, it's easy to see how Obama is slightly ahead or even in a lot of the polls. Some polls have Romney slightly ahead. But even so, I agree with you on the confusing continuation of Obama's popularity. I guess the MSM's love affair with Obama accounts for it. If they would have done their job with a proper vetting in 2008, maybe we wouldn't be having this conversation.
