Eric Boehlert, senior fellow at Media Matters for America, and Tina Dupuy, editor-in-chief of TheContributor.com, discuss whether Mitt Romney’s claims of momentum in the final days of the 2012 election are valid.
“In the summer and early fall when Obama was ahead, it was really tied. Now that it’s tied, Romney’s sort of ahead — he sort of gets the benefit of the doubt,” Boehlert says. “Romney would also be the first candidate to have the momentum who trails in every toss-up state that he has to win.”
“Republicans always act like they’re 10 points ahead,” Dupuy says. “Democrats always think that they’re 10 points behind even when they’re 20 points ahead.”
