    Romney polling well with independents as Obama campaign kicks off - CBS News

    A new Politico-George Washington University poll shows Mitt Romney leading President Obama by one point, 48 to 47 percent.

    In that poll, independent voters prefered Romney by a ten-point margin.

    Over the weekend, meanwhile, the president formally started campaigning for another four years in office.

    Unofficially, the president's re-election campaign has been under way for several months.

    If you look at his speeches to large audiences in swing states, they look and sound a lot like campaign rallies.

    But over the weekend, he made it official - and if you live in one of the key states he needs to carry, you're starting to see campaign ads like this: "We're coming back because America's greatness comes from a strong middle class. Because you don't quit, and neither does he."

    The Obama campaign was out Monday morning with its most significant ad buy yet, in 9 states, touting the administration's accomplishments during the president's first term.

    *********************

    He is so going to get toasted.

    I can't wait until Romney shows all of Obama's speeches about rising above the politics.

    Independents are going to dump Obama like a five-day-old diaper.

    and we can only hope that Obama's base "Too Lazy To Work/and/or dumbfounded" will be too lazy to vote!!! Independents will always vote for the challanger, especially when the President cant fool them. Gas prices wont matter anymore, we have a President who has been lying to us for 4 years now. and god knows how many scandals !!!

    Our constant campaigner President started the 2012 reelection bid the same day he walked into the oval office. He doesn't "work"--he campaigns.

    And you're right Romney polls better with independents than all the other GOP candidates put together.

    Many would posit that Independence is dead, but you should see it on a Saturday night.

    It won't be long before women get out from under the fartcloud we call Sandra Fluke and start to see how Obama is really bad for their families.

    This is looking better all the time. Polls already have Romney closing in and pretty soon.....he's goona pull away.

    With non-college white women, the so-called waitress moms, Obama also lost considerable ground. In the March poll, he essentially ran even among them, attracting 44 percent to Romney's 43 percent. In the new survey, Romney has opened a 51 percent to 39 percent lead with them.


    The pattern generally wasn't quite as bad with white-collar white voters. Obama trailed Romney among college-educated white men by 51 percent to 45 percent in the March survey; now Romney's lead with them has expanded to 53 percent to 42 percent, placing Obama's showing exactly at his 2008 national performance.

    I guess not every woman is so keen on Sandra Fluke.
