| Bernie Goldberg parses the polls:
Funny how these polls pretty much reflect what I think. If only the Rs would change on FP, Mitt would have my vote. As it is, I waver but only because of Obamacare.
And according to a new CBS News/New York Times poll, voters give President Obama a lead over Mitt Romney when asked which candidate would do a better job handing foreign policy,
Medicare, health care, taxes – and this is a significant switch – even the economy and unemployment, where the president holds a one point lead over Romney. One point isn’t much, that’s for sure. But the economy was Romney’s strength — an issue Romney won in the polls until now.
Only when asked who would do a better job with the federal budget deficit does Romney come out ahead of the president, 51 to 43 percent.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
