You still lose.<quoted text>
The New York Times’ John Cassidy:
“After being behind in the national polls for most of October,[Obama] has now re-established a narrow lead. While there are a number of possible explanations for this turnaround tY, the most convincing is the simplest: his handling of Sandy has raised his standing, and his poll ratings.”
A Pew poll taken before the hurricane showed Romney and Obama neck-and-neck at 47% but the same polling firm had Obama ahead of Romney 48%-45% post-Sandy.
You lose. I win.
For the last time, Obama was only down for 2 weeks following the first debate. That changed after the secind debate. Nate Silver debunked the Sandy myth.
Karl Rove sent Gretchen off the set in disbelief, prompting her to ask, "Are you using some sort of Republican math?"
As for Sandy, maybe it was because Mittens proposed privatizing FEMA.
