----The dead Rat Bounce
Willard did get a big bounce in the polls the day after the debate. This wasn't because he convinced anybody with his litany of lies, but the media convinced Red State voters that the Rat race was on again. Most polls at this point only count 'likely voters', as opposed to registered voters.
However the polls numbers with people contacted over the weekend included those who saw the new job numbers, as well as the new Obama ads with Mittens debating himself didn't show the bounce. There aren't many undecided voters, once the Red voters realize everybody isn't switching their vote they won't be so interested in voting. They really didn't want to vote for Romney themselves, and would just as soon stay home.
The only talking point the Republicans have that is fact based is the size of the debt load, but of course they don't mention that the debt is entirely their own doing.
The bad news for this talking point is that the total public and private debt is now at a six year low compared to GDP. Let's see, Obama has been POTUS how long? He took over after Clinton, didn't he?
The truth is that the economy has been growing steadily since the Stimulus was put in place. Consumers have been de-leveraging, (not always willingly) but it has been happening. There are even economists saying we need to borrow more. Raising the minimum wage would make more sense, but the Republicans think the 47% are paid too much already. Always whining about being entitled to food and healthcare.
