Talking to a GOPer pollster type this morning, he warns me, “i want to prepare you for a likely Bush loss.” He’s worried Ohio and Wisconsin are worse than we know because of the economy. And, generally–which is a point multiple people have consistently brought up-the numbers are just so much closer than they should be for an incumbent. (And yes, I know, we have to bear in mind the war, etc.)
I’m not trying to bum you out, to dull GOTV efforts, or anything else. I’m a) just relaying what I’m getting from smart people b) hoping it energizes. This can be won, so go win it and make sure, as the Hugh man says, it’s not close, they can’t cheat.
