Before any of the HRC partisans start crowing about the Gallup numbers here, I urge you to look at the history of the last 3 weeks.

This is about as bad as it ever likely to get for BHO - let's wait another 3 weeks and check again.

Stay tuned.

i never get all excited over day to day shifts in these tracking polls. longterm averages are more important. as for the favorability numbers - so 6 out of 100 people find clinton more unfavorable than obama. this doesnt seem like a huge difference.

i see these as indicative of a sea change because they are beginning to take on a certain amount of consistency. when the stats begin to say that a huge tide has been turned back then it serves us all to take this rather seriously.

when HC was the momentum gal at the starting gate and was shifted to the laggart, that was a sea change for obama. but he's been ahead now for so long that many of us have suspected that it could not be sustained. i'm not too sure that it's a question of wright's sacrificing his son for his own ego. i think it's more because we have seen more of hillary's character and a certain plateau in obama.

his message is not resonating anymore because he has failed to tweak it. he's playing safe. after four months it is now very humdrum and that's why the wright issue has snuck in. there was nothing remarkable about his delivery to counterbalance it.
