WASHINGTON POST / ABC NEWS POLL: ROMNEY 50, OBAMA 47.
UPDATE: A reader sends:
The most interesting item in the linked article is not the poll results showing Romney taking the lead. It’s the disclosure deeper in the article that 92% (!) of Obama voters think Obama is going to win. Obviously these folks get their news from the mainstream media, aren’t paying attention to recent poll results, and/or are just bad at math. But more importantly, if the current “preference cascade” continues and Romney wins, as appears more likely every day, a significant minority of that clueless 92% is likely to engage in Occupy-style riots and endless false accusations of voter fraud and “election stealing.” And the irresponsible media (e.g., Dan Rather, MSNBC) will have only itself to blame.
No, they’ll blame Republicans and racism.
