They are getting desperate

Romney magically leaps 9 points in the polls versus Obama… in one week:

Mitt Romney has now jumped to his biggest lead ever over President Obama in a hypothetical Election 2012 matchup. It’s also the biggest lead a named Republican candidate has held over the incumbent in Rasmussen Reports surveying to date. The latest national telephone survey finds that 45% of Likely U.S. Voters favor the former Massachusetts governor, while 39% prefer the president…..

A week ago, Romney trailed Obama 44% to 41%.

I’m sure this massive 9-point swing has NOTHING to do with Bank Party fears that Ron Paul will win Iowa and therefore explode the “he can’t win the Republican nomination” argument. This marks the introduction of the “Romney will crush Obama” theme.
