Nate Silver believes the President is the front runner and his lead in the polls could grow significantly in the coming days.
Andrew Sullivan had this to say:
"The logic of the Obama argument - so pellucidly laid out by Bill Clinton last week - is so compelling, the GOP positions so extreme, the Republican brand still so tainted if it isn't merely a protest vote (as in 2010) ... that a landslide is possible, if still unlikely. Anything is possible. But, trying not to get too excitable about this, it cannot be encouraging for the Republicans that after the first real apples-to-apples focus on the choice, Obama has surged."
The Democratic Convention was marked by enthusiasm, excitement, and inclusion. The Republican convention was a flat, judgmental dud and the polling reflects that. The GOP has an unpopular candidate with a fanatic for a running mate. I'm very confident that President Obama will be reelected. I don't believe it will be nearly as close as the press would like us to think. Mark my words in November.
