Most of Obama’s voters — 73 percent — say they are voting “for” him rather than “against” Romney (23 percent). The reverse is true among Romney backers: 54 percent say their support is more “against” Obama rather than “for” Romney (40 percent).
The poll also indicates why Republicans are going after low-information voters. These are the ones that think approving a pipeline that will ship oil out of the country will somehow lower prices here.
Update: This has been flowing around…but recall what was said a mere four years ago…
Update2: The White House put up this page. The most important graph, which is hidden about halfway down is the “Global Oil Consumption” one. That’s the pressure on the demand side. On the supply side, we have the Iranian tough talk campaign applying pressure, as noted here.
I’d also wager, rather safely, that oil company profits, when reported, will once again be approaching record territory. A populace squeezed at the pump is looking to point a finger, and one particular media company in particular is more than happy to do so with every outlet at their disposal. They do, falsely claiming the same thing was done four years ago. I’ve already provided evidence that it is they who have changed their story.
Now let’s see how many gullible folks they convince that while they were wrong then, they are dead-on right now, and gas prices are actually singularly controlled by the President. Probably with a little lever or dial.
