Fox News graphic, Obama 49, Romney 40
Et tu, Fox?
Not only is Mitt Romney the worst Republican presidential nominee since ... I give up, I can't think of anyone worse, but his staff is clueless.
Mitt Romney's presidential campaign is at a loss to explain a series national polls showing the candidate slipping to President Barack Obama.

"It's the middle of summer, it’s the doldrums. It’s the Olympics. There has not been any national news that would push these numbers from -3 to -9," a senior Romney adviser told reporters on Friday at a briefing in campaign headquarters.

"You’d see it in Rasmussen and you’d see it in Gallup, and we’re not seeing it," the adviser added, encouraging reporters to not "read too much into any one single survey."

Rasmussen exists to keep conservatives safely inside their Fox News bubble. It's not meant to impart actual accurate information!

But worse is the claim that there has been no national news that would push those numbers down. Really? Nothing? Here, let me help. This:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
