CAN MITT ROMNEY possibly recover? Pundits and pollsters are beginning to doubt it. A survey conducted between Sept. 12 and Sept. 16 by the Pew Research Center — before the “47% of Americans are victims” video came to light — showed Obama ahead of Romney 51% to 43% among likely voters.
That’s the biggest margin in the September survey prior to a presidential election since Bill Clinton led Bob Dole, 50% to 38%, in 1996.
And, remember, this poll was done before America watched Romney belittle almost half the nation.
