Whole bunch of polls just out showing perhaps a new trend in the campaign.
For president here's the average from real clear politics President Obama appears to have broken a months long tie and sent to.
45 and a half percent whispering in her campaign insiders John absolutely days of former.
Republican congressman for New York -- tell Fox News contributor and a former pollster president Jimmy Carter Doug Johnny to a Fox News contributor former pollster war.
Bill Clinton gentlemen good to see you.
I'm all right this is still.
Within the margin of error so we can technically qualities statistical tie -- done.
Mean has the president.
Essentially moved ahead here.
But it's clear that he has moved ahead it's now.
Within the margin of error but at the outside of it.
But the trends on the issue questions and on voting questions.
Are all going in president Obama's direction this is the time the Romney campaign has to -- -- and come up with something new and different.
-- -- that absolutely.
Everything you know you can argue whether it's couple points this that the other.
But the movement as they -- in structurally underneath and we're gonna talk about about the economy.
The president's job rating it's moving that -- the other thing is happening I think it's important note.
Is I believe the Democrats got a -- enough for Obama but for their party and ID.
They -- -- there's a movement suggests in the polls that people.
-- are moving more to the democratic brand and member of Bill Clinton Bill Clinton did this that was his speech was aimed at.
The Republican attacking the Republican brand out Romney and promoting the democratic Red -- every time you -- 1% of the vote to your side party loyalty.
Nonsense of that -- Jurors you know the latest job report shows that hiring is -- down congressman unemployment is still high above 8% what does that 43 consecutive months above a precinct gas prices.
-- Americans they spiked so high.
And take a look at this would want to put this on the screen a full 80% of voters believe.
The recession continues 80% at all of this under president Obama's watch and yet moved to the next -- Yes he has a race governor Romney's edge on fixing the economy the two candidates are tied 46%.
Congressman what happened to governor Romney's advantage.
On the economy.
Well he sat on his campaign from march when we started doing this every Sunday with you Greg we've started saying from the first Sunday.
That he has this period from march through July before the Olympics to define himself.
Or else Obama will do it for him.
He didn't do -- he should've been out as we have said selling a positive specific vision as they turn around artist.
A guy that's turned around the Olympics.
Companies hired people -- a lot of positive things.
If he'd sold that over and over and over.
He would be in much leadership almost nothing correct he's done he's done I don't know what he's -- You know obsolete personalize this but -- thirteen year old daughter Olivia SATA the dinner table and recited Romney's five point -- it actually work it in school.
But -- she paused and she said but.
I don't understand how that creates jobs well.
I think -- Libby is on to something because as I read it and I heard it.
I heard that he said he's gonna create twelve million jobs but I didn't hear how.
What the mechanism was or what the vehicle so.
Bottom line I don't think the American people know the five point plan as well as your daughter does and -- sure believe they have no idea how it's gonna achieve those objectives that.
Well I think you're wanting what you're saying in this is most disturbing.
When you show the numbers that and there are several polls showing him tied or even slightly above and -- Obama ahead of Romney on the economy.
Which is of Romney's issue.
And then you realize the president as we talked about last week as -- job approval rating in -- major polls and 50%.
This is a structural problem.
The Republican narrative the lack of not only and we talked about John declining we talked about the need to -- that narrative -- explain what's happening.
Very matter of factly people know things are bad the Democrats have decided they can head taking -- strategy which is -- No don't believe your eyes things are really getting better and knowing that the -- campaign won't challenge them.
And that the press will echo what for the because there are mostly in the mainstream.
He had a tank -- -- -- Olivia did was take me to an electoral map and started pointing out the numbers -- put real clear politics electoral -- off and very it is.
What do we have here -- -- 237.
To Romney's 100 in 91 based on polling data -- the election held today.
What the change from a week ago we are with you is real clear has moved Michigan governor Romney's original home state to Obama.
And that's sixteen electoral votes and that's a huge change and it makes the president I believe 33.
Away from the magic -- -- -- but if you look at.
Florida and Ohio.
Polls have it come out showing the president's lead five points or -- -- those he wins those states it's logistically impossible for Romney to win the election.
But let me throw one other twist and turn here and.
That is the events that happen in the Middle East Romney was criticized by many on the right for his statement others said -- -- him and he was right on point.
But the Fox News polling data shows only 4% a scant 4% say that'll influence their vote for policy national.
It's -- if that's not the way the equation works the equation works viewers what -- asking people what influences them.
People think and foreign policy is important.
And the president has some problems not surfaced not -- killing -- -- and not on on generally.
If it does he do foreign policy but he has a problem once everything's -- and with the numbers we sorrow over tomorrow will be a poll out.
Which I'm associated with which will show you again overwhelming three quarters the American people believe that the -- -- -- will use these weapons against America.
That -- extremism which people are upset about.
And to some extent what is this this outreach to Muslim world now.
What we have to use that I happen to agree that I think that the -- was correct it I thought the statements of the embassy were -- But he got attacked because he kept pursuing.
But because the Obama administration was willing with a -- protests.
Going on as they did last week they appear to have died down for the moment.
I would say to pat.
Pat if we get more unrest in twenty nations or even five attend the image of Obama being -- Could be recast it could save.
The Romney -- yes I think congressman I -- a couple things -- slightly under on your point Greg and only 4% in the fox -- in all fairness the poll was being taken.
Monday Tuesday Wednesday that's when this thing happens appointed an -- it's changing quickly number one number so.
What is Romney's.
Point in this campaign is he going to beat Obama on the economy because he hasn't made the argument well enough that your numbers show.
If he's pivoting over to say I'm a better manager of foreign affairs.
He hasn't done that -- at times in our Yogi Berra -- it's getting late early morning fire it has got to take a quick break as we.
