That we magically identify the group in Libya that attacked the embassy and blow them to Mars?

Might help the president and his sagging numbers and campaign. At least change the narrative that has him on the wrong trajectory for Nov 6.

Sagging numbers? Obama is up 6.5 points since Oct. 19.

What are all the polls you guys are referencing.

Obama has been sliding since the first debate with each poll looking worse than the last one. Just wondering what you are seeing

What's going to happen will be the same as in the Bush elections. The person winning the popular vote will not win the electorate. Everyone gets upset for losing to the rules they knowingly walked into yet again.

We are not a democracy. We are supposedly a representative republic... though there are many that would have us revert to mob rule.

Nate Silver. He's a statistician who has algorithms that I don't understand to extrapolate the true %s I think based on all major polls. He's never been wrong that I know of.

Obama did have a sharp decline after the first debate; from the 3rd to the 12th. Then he has been steadily climbing again at the same rate as before the debates. He's back up to 75% now.

You're obviously going to dismiss it because it's from NYT and I likely won't even read your replies. But he was doing this for years on his own site, and only recently moved his work to the NYT site because he got noticed.

Taking an average of most of the major polls, Mitt is up by about a point.

But Obama is still up in ohio, and in the electoral college. We could be looking at a situation where Mitt wins the popular vote but Obama wins the electoral college.
