Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

More Of This (But We Won't Get It)

Chait expertly flays R-Money's claims about Obama.

Of course, this shouldn't be hard, as Romney has never seemed particularly wedded to the truth in his attacks before.  But the country would be healthier if Romney was called on this lying bullshit every time it leaves his mouth.

In a separate column he takes apart the demographic of pollsters and notes the demographic trends.  The Gallup poll that had Romney in the lead actually assumed that non-white voters would be lower than 2010. Not 2008, which could happen, but 2010 when those voters largely stayed home.  As I said, voter screens will be key to understanding poll numbers this far out.
