I was saying in the previous post that the messages of the Obama and Romney campaigns aren't getting through, and, well, here's more evidence, from the new Fox poll:
As I've said on a number of occasions, Fox polls seem surprisingly credible to me -- their results aren't skewed to the right, like Rasmussen results; in this poll, Obama is up by 4, which is better than Obama's doing in the Times/CBS and NPR polls. Fox does like to throw in push-poll-style questions (an example in this poll: "What about most Americans -- do you think they would prefer working at a job for a paycheck or not working and getting the same pay from the government?"). But apart from that, in these polls Fox seems to want the chips to fall where they may, even if the results don't match Fox propaganda -- as you can see, the numbers above suggest that Obama is failing to turn Romney into Gordon Gekko, but Romney is failing to turn Obama into Karl Marx.
Which is more or less what today's other national polls are showing. As Alec McGillis of The New Republic says:
So, basically, 90+ pct of the electorate is locked in and the remainder isn't paying a bit of attention to what we write and say. Carry on.— Alec MacGillis (@AlecMacGillis) July 19, 2012
