Harry Reid is not closing strong.The desperate Obama, meanwhile, kept up with his extremist rhetoric.
Reid benefited from the previous two months of the campaign when most of the focus was on his opponent. Her surprise primary victory, gaffes, attacks on the GOP establishment, heck, even her hairdo, have come in for close scrutiny as the Tea Party storyline has gripped political reporters.
But in the closing days of the campaign, the focus is turning to the incumbent, and not with very favorable results.
A Democratic pollster told Power Play that Reid's performance has been "underwhelming" in the late campaign days and that party polls show that the Senate majority leader has been "maxed out" for several weeks.
Though he is quick to point out that Angle's situation is precarious and that voters could "turn on her quickly," he conceded that things are not shaping up well for Reid.
Public polls show the same thing - Reid has been stuck at about 47 percent of the vote. Angle, on the other hand, has crossed the 50 percent threshold in several recent surveys.
President Barack Obama, fighting to keep Democrats in control of the U.S. Senate, accused Republicans on Friday of peddling discredited "snake oil ideas" about the U.S. economy.Snake oil, huh? A little bit of projection there, no?
I'm thinking that moniker Imam Obamadinejad really fits.
