Fox News Concedes Obama Winning in Swing States as MSNBC Makes Ratings Inroads
Fox News must be having a stroke. They’re actually reporting this afternoon that President Obama is polling better in the swing states than their candidate, Mitt Romney. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/09/19/obama-has-edge-over-romney-in-three-battleground-states/#ixzz2719gIO00 Talk about a cold day in hell. Add this story to the news that on Tuesday night, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow bested Fox News’s Bill Reilly in the key demo ratings, and you can officially say that weird things are happening– pigs are flying.
In the Fox News story out this afternoon, it’s conceded that more voters trust Obama over Romney to fix the economy in Ohio, Virgina, and Michigan. Fox reports that people aren’t happy with the way things are now, but don’t think Romney can make significant changes.
Meantime, all the MSNBC shows are making headway suddenly against Fox News. It could be that Romney’s series of unfortunate incidents have caused a lot of trouble for him and for the conservatively pitched network. Stay tuned…
