exceptionally good news for us. Sure, the top-line number is a statistical tie, Romney 47% to Obama 46%. But dig down and Obama is in deep doodoo. Among independents, Obama is deeply underwater, with only 28% saying they have a favorable impression versus 52% who say not favorable. Independents seem to slightly favor Romney, 32% to 31%. Among all voters, Obama's favorability went from a slightly bad 42%-45% in April to 36%-48%.
That's just astonishing. After a month of unanswered Obama attack ads, with the campaign uttering smear after smear, as Obama makes targeted panders on gay rights and immigration policy, Obama's favorability dropped six points!
