It’s not really the makeup or the hair style or the book tours or the late night comedy show appearances that are irritating about Bachmann, but the fact that she’s as narcissistic and as self-promoting as Palin with the exception that she has a constituency she ignores.

Ohio and Pennsylvania were central not only to the Obama election in 2008, but the Democratic surge to control of Congress in 2006 and 2008.

A GOP poll says “yes”/div /div pUp is down, and down is up in the world of horserace politics this week.

SC: Obama can play with majority of GOP field The general election numbers out of South Carolina, published on Thursday by our polling pals at PPP, are the prime example of two trends that have defined this summer’s understanding of the 2012 presidential campaign. Specifically, these two points: 1) Barack Obama’s numbers, at present, are pretty awful for a president seeking reelection; and 2) the GOP’s field of contenders and pretenders, by and large, are in a shockingly bad position to do anything about it.

Pennsylvania tightening, according to Q poll A myriad of pollsters have confirmed that the debt ceiling negotiations in Washington have exacted a political toll on the president. President Obama’s numbers took a precipitous dip in Gallup tracking, though they have rebounded a bit . In trial heats, however, that drop has been less pronounced. Tuesday’s release of a new poll in Pennsylvania by Quinnipiac, however, is the clearest sign yet that the protracted standoff between the president and Congressional Republicans has eroded support for his reelection.

Fifty states in the Union. Which ones will get the most attention next year? Though it rankles some (I can personally recall some scintillating pie fights on the subject during the era of debates over a “50-state strategy” back in the day), it is inevitable that some states will receive more attention than others at election time. Attention can be defined in numerous ways.

Tennessee: An Obama state? One poll says “yes” Election junkies, to say nothing of Team Obama, are trying to figure out how the President gets to 270 electoral votes next year. Probably next to nobody has figured Tennessee’s 11 electoral votes into that calculus, given the double-digit drubbing John McCain laid on him in 2008. But if this poll from the Volunteer State is to be believed, perhaps that might be an oversight: Vanderbilt University for The Tennesseean .

The state of Pennsylvania President Barack Obama has endured his share of ups and downs in the Keystone State, leading to some well-founded concerns about the prospect of his losing a state that has gone Democratic for President in each of the past five elections. Quinnipiac, however, shows the President recovering nicely from earlier struggles in Keystoneville, and well positioned at the moment to beat all Republican comers.
