Still a dead heat

Two new polls show just how tight the presidential race remains. Rasmussen, in a poll released today, has the race at Romney 46 – Obama 45. Rasmussen puts the president’s approval rating in negative territory: 47-52.

Meanwhile, Gallup, in a poll released yesterday, has Obama leading Romney by 47-45. The president’s approval rating is break-even: 46-46.

These polls follow ad blizes by Team Obama. If they succeeded in moving the needle at all, they didn’t move it much.

Barring unexpected economic news or some sort of major crisis, I don’t expect either side to move the needle much until the Republican convention when, I hope, Americans will come to see Mitt Romney in a better light than that projected by the Democrats and their friends in the mainstream media.
