For all the attention paid to the effectiveness of President
Obama's Bain-themed attacks, it's remarkable how Obama has been stuck right
around 47 percent for a very long time.
As the Washington Post's Chris Cillizza documented, the president's team
has handily outspent Romney and his allied super PACs, pouring in $91 million
into eight swing states in an early spending barrage intended to make Romney
seem an unacceptable challenger. But for
all that effort, the numbers haven't moved much at all: The latest ABC
News/Washington Post poll out today shows the race deadlocked at 47 percent.
Yesterday's USA Today/Gallup swing state poll showed Obama statistically tied
with Romney, the exact same result the survey showed one month ago.
