In his editorial this week, the boss lamented the petty, conventional, and stupid nature of this year's presidential campaign so far. And it looks like he isn't alone. According to a new poll from NBC and the Wall Street Journal, the last few weeks of the race have left the public with more negative opinions of both candidates. Writes Mark Murray of NBC News:
It's true, as Allahpundit points out, that the poll heavily oversamples Democrats, which may account for the fact that the poll shows Barack Obama leading Mitt Romney by six points. But the results do suggest the current trajectory of the race isn't making either candidate any more appealing to voters.
