Latest PPP Polling Finds Josh Mandel STILL Not Winning
So you thought Karl Rove was an invincible, all-powerful evil genius who never made a false move? OK, then someone tell me why he's continued for so long to dump money into the hapless Senate campaign of Josh "The Empty Suit" Mandel.
PPP's latest polling just came out, showing him lagging behind Brown by 10 points and with unfavorability that overwhelms his favorable rating.
Yes, yes, I know — "A lot can happen between now and the election." But actually, that's not true. It's incredibly rare for a candidate with a lead like that, who has lead the race steadily, to suddenly lose. He'd pretty much have to be arrested for molesting kindergartners or start babbling crazily at a speech using a lot of racial and ethnic slurs - maybe call someone "macaca." That worked for George Allen to hand James Webb at Senate seat in Virginia.
We're hearing that Rove's American Crossroads may be starting to ease off on their massive Ohio buys. Maybe "genius" Rove finally got the message: The Empty Suit hasn't got what it takes.
PPP's polling also showed Obama's lead unchanged at three points; the polling was done before the choice of Paul Ryan for his running made was announced.
