From a Romney adviser, on the survey showing Obama over Romney 53-40:
“You really can’t take that poll seriously. With 31 percent saying the country’s headed in the right direction, there’s no way Obama’s at 53 on the ballot.”
“That would be unprecedented.”
“When a single poll shows results far outside the margin of error of every other poll out there, that’s a good reason to believe it’s an anomaly. If it just seems like it can’t possibly be right, then it probably isn’t right.”
More national polls are coming soon, so let’s all take some deep breaths (again).
