    It should continue to get even better for Obama.

    I hope you're right, but I expect the polls to tighten. Right now Romney is missing some approval from conservative Republicans who haven't accepted him as a candidate, and from some people temporarily turned off by the ugliness of his fight with Gingrich. Romney should also pick up some votes when he begins to court independents in earnest and when he gets a convention bounce. There's also likely to be at least some negative economic news that will hurt Obama.

    Rassmussen tends to lean right and I see him on Fox.

    In 1948 polls said Dewey would beat Truman. Truman was very unpopular but the, as he called it, "do nothing congress" thought they had a mandate and they pushed too far too fast and sent the unions back into Truman's arms.

    History is repeating itself. There is no way Mitt wins. Righties will feel the same way they did after McCain lost. What a weak candidate.

    But they are going to try to take back the Senate. 10 Dems are up for re election, only two GOP.

    But I think we will hold the Senate AND win back the House. Nancy Pelosi the speaker once again.

    Republicans are hoping evangelicals will show up and vote for Mitt because he's the lesser of two evils, but wishful thinking.

    A cult is a cult is a cult. They wouldn't vote for a Muslim and they won't vote for a Mormon. Not once they really learn the differences. One being that Mormon's think YOU are in a cult. You do not have the authority from God. They do. They got it from God in 1400.

    And Romney is a liberal from Massachusettes. If anyone will make them stay home, its Romney. He'll say anything to get elected.

    And the Bain Capital story turns off most Americans, religious or not. And he's just not likeable.

    The only reason they are running Romney is they couldn't find anyone else who was electable. Christie said no. Jeb said no.

    Obama's gonna get 4 more years.

    A little early to be counting votes but it is an almost certainty that the better America gets to know Romney the less they are going to like him.

    well, not with rightwing extremists who wouldn't vote for him if he were the second coming. but his record is actually a pretty good one... not great, but good.

    no matter how much the right pretends otherwise.

    If Mitt is the head of the GOP ticket then at this point I hope for a landslide loss for Republicans. Republicans need to get their heads out of their ass and now put up with Progressives like Mitt and Newt.
