About half

“Obama needs to use the other half to remind Americans why they fell in love with him back in 2004.”

“Reality this year is carrot and stick, hope and fear.”

“Fire up the base and disqualify Romney—it’s a twofer.”

About one-third

“Talk about the past, and we lose; talk about the future, and we win.”

“Trust the negative stuff to the outside groups.”

Hardly any

“The question that needs to be answered has less to do with Romney: It’s what would an Obama second term mean to the undecided voter?”

About two-thirds    30%
About half    18%
About one-third    25%
Hardly any    27%
