How bad is the polling data for Obama, he is even losing ground in California.
Now nobody expects Mitt Romney to win in California, because if that ever happened we would be witnessing a landslide vote greater than the 1980 Reagan victory over Carter. However, Mitt Romney has gained ground in polling data in Cali.In 2008 Obama won California 6% to 37%; however, in 2012 he is only ahead by 14% as Romney has see a recent 8% gain.
Obama had led by 22 points in the CBS 5 tracking poll released four weeks ago. Obama now leads by only 14 points, an 8-point improvement for Romney. At the same time, the poll found U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s support for her re-election bid remained largely unchanged, month-on-month, suggesting that the erosion in Democratic support is not across-the-board, but contained to Obama. Unclear is whether the Obama erosion is fleeting or long-lasting.
