If I had told you in 2004…

…that in 2012, the Democratic candidate for President would have a 16-point lead on the Republican on the question “Who can handle the responsibilities of the Commander in chief,” what would you have done?  Checked my temperature? Checked my blood alcohol concentration?  Checked me into an insane asylum?

I’m pretty sure the correct answer would be “D. All of the above.”  But, lo and behold, that’s exactly what a new CNN/ORC poll released today has found.

Can handle the responsibilities of
Commander in chief

Obama: 52%

Romney: 36%

Both: 4%

Neither: 7%

No opinion: 1%

Either Wiesman or myself will post more detailed thoughts about this poll later, but this question just jumped out at me and I had to highlight it immediately.  This is a very strange new world we live in.
