Romney, I argue below, has lately been watching good pitches whistle past--and, as James of England noted yesterday, Nate Silver of the New York Times now offers odds against a Romney victory of roughly two to one, worse than the odds Silver calculated just a week or so ago.
And yet...and yet....
From our own Ben Domenech in today's "Transom":
...Team Romney views him [Mitt] as a single-minded economic Mister Fix-It, and they’ve always planned on a 2004-like slug it out in the swing states campaign....Is the strategy working? Republicans seem to think it isn’t. But considering they’re basically a coin-flip away now from beating a president with a solid floor of support, despite the fact that no one really likes their candidate, isn’t that about as good as it could be at this point?
Ben has an argument.
