The Telling Detail
Rasmussen has President Obama up 51% - 43% in Connecticut, with 3% undecided and the remaining 3% for various third party candidates. So, let's face it: Mitt Romney is not going to take Connecticut.
Of course, Romney was never-ever going to take CT. Not in a million election years. It's one of the most reliably Democrat states in the Union.
What's interesting is, Obama won the state last time around with nearly 61% of the vote. He's down ten points from 2008 in, as I just said, "one of the most reliably Democrat states." And it isn't like Obama has a big ton of undecideds to win back from the middle. Connecticut voters have pretty much made up their minds: They still like Obama, but they're out of love with Obama.
So how do voters in purple states like Colorado or Ohio really feel?
