    Shouldn't Romney Be Ahead by Now?

    What do you think trying to be as objective as possible? I think he should be closer and if his numbers don't get closer to 50%, it doesn't look good.

    Maybe it's just me but vote tallying hasn't begun yet.

    I think he should be past 5% over Obama now

    I was more of the belief that Romney would have a 10% lead over Obama by the end of summer, but the polls are not showing it.

    When you consider the agenda of the mainstream liberal media and their unrelenting support for Obama it's a wonder that Romney is even in the running. Americans are smarter and better informed than push polls seem to indicate. Polsters admit that they over-represent democrats about 3-1 in most polls. If an incumbent republican ever accused his opponent of causing the cancer death of a woman there would be outrage in the media but the biased left wing just circles the wagons for their chosen candidate.

    I'd expect an incumbent to be ahead at this point.

    I found these two facts as telling, and indicative of one more reason Romney will win.

    As state senator, Obama voted "present" 129 times.

    As governor, Romney used his veto over 800 times.

    One shows courage, the other, fear.

    And history indicates 2/3 will not vote for the incumbent.

    Romney doesn't have access to all his funding until after the convention.

    obama is the incumbent. he should be ahead by now. As the incumbent, people are going to be voting on whether or not obama has done such a good job, he should be retained for another term or fired right now.

    Our election system has become a system in which the president is elected for a period of 8 years, not four, and midway through the people get to decide whether or not he should be fired.
