So Jeff by I went on CNBC's website this morning and I took a poll. I and I I wanted to see it really took participate in the pulpit as a wanted to see the result according to CNBC at about 6:30 this morning 61%. Of your audience thought Obama had one. The poll last night vs Romney at 34% of those numbers holding up is that still going on and that this late juncture dead after 10 o'clock. Yeah I mean it it it seems like that was -- that did that that was the that the prevailing sentiment. You know I think whatever you get into this situation with the foreign policy that bit -- the numbers right now are about 5737. And obvious favorite. Whatever you get -- reform policy debate incumbent. Always inherently has the advantage because he's had four years worth of you know foreign policy the conducted and he's privy to information that -- challengers not going to be privy to so you know -- -- is that the president sort of gets a leg up on that. I thought Obama -- -- it would fairly okay Java is little surprise that probably was more aggressive you know as last night I really thought -- -- Libya question -- it was a sure fire winner for a minute think you're really just didn't didn't go after it. Yeah I thought that was his chance to really put this election to bad you know and and go up by because I think he needs to be up by. On real clear I'd like to see him with a two point lead right now sitting with a point six lead I don't think he wins with a point six lead because of the electrical. Yes yes -- the Electoral College math doesn't work out very well -- and you know. Yeah exactly I mean it's I -- -- the newest Rasmussen numbers the daily tracking from Rasmussen has him up. Has -- -- 4%. Which I think is you know the largest. Part of that he's had in newspaper first effort for quite awhile at least -- if it's not old or extremist going back in quite a bit extra Rasmussen has been much closer than a lot of the other polls have galloped -- that. -- -- pretty consistently but success points for the past couple weeks but.

Portion of the Juarez just kind of weaknesses or sports or -- And and that kind of thing really cutting into their. That are that it did their their profits and their revenue especially I mean they're at their stock is now like. It's all -- -- such actually up now it did it and dealt quite a bit in the -- -- -- it it if it's the real wild card and you know if it's the technology stories to consumers to Hillary and of course you know -- bracing today for that big.
