Erick Erickson, editor of the conservative blog RedState.com and a CNN contributor, concedes in a column published Monday that Mitt Romney is losing and that President Barack Obama would win a second term if the election were held today. In the column, Erickson counters conservatives who have quibbled with the slew of recent polls that have shown Obama out in front.
Contra Dick Morris, Mitt Romney is not winning this election. At least Mitt Romney is not winning the election right now. Conservatives are obsessing over every poll, the turn out models used, and the media bias that is on ful display. Yes, some of the polling models seem screwy, though we all forget the pollsters apply a secret sauce known only to them on top. Yes, reporters are fully beclowning themselves to get their god-king re-elected. But while we may be focused there, the fact is the Romney campaign isn’t functioning well. Lucky for you and me the election is not today. But something needs to happen in Boston and I am less and less hopeful anything will happen.
