The Obama campaign is out with another brutal ad slamming Mitt Romney for his insult that 47 percent of Americans are freeloaders. The ad doesn’t show Romney’s picture at the closed-door event, but it uses the audio of Romney’s own words, along with pictures of veterans, workers, families with children, and other 47 percenters. The ad will air in seven states. Romney is running his own ad saying he cares for the poor and the middle class, but like his wife’s horse Rafalca, who failed to place at the Olympics, so too will this ad fall on deaf ears.
Here’s an interesting take for FiveThirtyEight and a possible landslide:
Nate Silver: “Looks to be about a 20 percent chance that Mr. Romney will win, but also about a 20 percent chance that Mr. Obama will actually beat his 2008 margin in the popular vote. The smart money is on an outcome somewhere in the middle – as it has been all year. But if you can conceive of a Romney comeback – and you should account for that possibility – you should also allow for the chance that things could get really out of hand, and that Mr. Obama could win in a borderline landslide.”
