It’s all fun and games until somebody loses their Medicare. Mitt Romney can’t send Paul Ryan to Florida because of his radical Medicare plan, but when Democrats have a chance to remind voters about the plan, Romney won’t be able to use Ryan anywhere. Here are a few blasts from the polling past, when the Ryan plan to end Medicare was in the news

Let’s ignore for a moment that Mitt Romney’s solution to what ailed General Motors was to just let the whole damn thing fail, thus making this choice of topics a rather curious choice at best for Mitt’s increasingly self-satirizing campaign. His ad blaming Barack Obama for GM’s closing of auto dealerships in Ohio has other problems as well. The outdoor footage at the four second mark

If you’ve followed the polls over the last couple of days, you might be tempted to sing a chorus of “Me and My Shadow.” In real time, you see, PPP has released polls within days (or, in today’s case, hours) of a new Rasmussen poll. It happened in North Carolina, and it happened in Colorado. And, not surprisingly, the two firms came up with very contrary results

It’s been a while since we last checked to see the status of the gender gap in presidential polling. But a quick look at several recent polls that include that information (surprisingly few do), and it’s clear—people may not be talking about the war on women today as much as they did earlier in the year, but the effects linger on: Given all the systemic challenges Mitt Romney faces in winning the race, the gender gap is certainly one he can’t strike off his list

Daily Kos has followed up with Richard Lydecker, chair of the Miami-Dade Democratic Party, for a response to Armando’s earlier story that Al Lorenzo, founder of the political consulting firm Quantum Results and close adviser to Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, was being considered by the party to run its absentee balloting operation this election cycle.

A new survey of American suburban and swing voters by Hofstra University’s National Center for Suburban Studies demonstrates just how mainstream the progressive vision for the country on the role of government really is. On issues of income inequality, the social contract, government regulation of industry for health and safety of the public, these swing voters demonstrate that, while they don’t like these concepts in the abstract, they support the specific programs at issue, and want to keep them strong. This plays into the larger narrative that’s at the heart of this campaign and the competing visions for what the role of government in our daily lives should be, and how Democrats and progressives should be presenting that vision

Once again, Thursday provides us with “choose your own meme” day on the data front. If you are a devotee of Mitt Romney (and if you are, and reading this, you are presumably lost right now on the internets, or slightly masochistic), you will (yet again) point to Rasmussen as proof that all is well
