The bad news? As we alluded to yesterday, he’s probably right (via The Hill):
President Obama told supporters at a campaign event in New York City Monday night that, if the election were held today, he would win. “So the upshot is if the election were held today, I think it would be close, but I think we’d win,” Obama said. Noting that there were 99 days left until the election, Obama added: “If I can say that every single day for the next 99 days, then we will be able to embark on the next phase of this journey.” Most experts agree that the race for the presidency is close between Obama and presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney, and most also agree that it is too soon to make predictions based on polling, since those numbers could change. Nonetheless, as reported by The Hill, and according to polling averages taken by the New York Times, the president is ahead in 10 of the 12 so-called battleground states. If those polls were borne out on Election Day, Obama would win.
