Let’s review the bidding:
1. Independents don’t really like either major party candidate, but Mitt Romney fares better than does Barack Obama.
2. The president is losing the support of Jewish voters in New York. Indeed, if the poll numbers are anywhere near accurate, the bottom might be falling out.
Nothing is written in stone. But the fundamentals are beginning to look bad for this president. If Mitt Romney is liking his chances, he should; as of this writing, Intrade has the president’s re-election chances at a little under 53%.
