    Both tickets have already gained the support of many of their key voting blocs. *Romney has the edge among white Evangelical Christians (70-18 percent), white voters (53-36 percent), married voters (51-38 percent), men (48-40 percent) and seniors (50-41 percent).Obama has the advantage among black voters (86-6 percent), women (48-42 percent), lower income households (53-35 percent), young voters (48-39 percent) and unmarried voters (55-34 percent).Independents back Romney by 42-32 percent (one in four is undecided). *Independents were vital to Obama’s 2008 victory, backing him over Republican John McCain by 52-44 percentRead more:*Fox News poll: Race for the White House tightens | Fox News

    Who do you trust to do a better job improving the economy and creating jobs?

    45% Romney

    43% Obama


    And that's with a +7 of democrats polled

    Agreed but it's less mundane than most of the discussions on here. Polls are always a fun topic to pick at no?

    It was derailed when Huntsman dropped out basically guaranteeing Obama's 2nd term.

    Yes, I will be surprised if Obama doesn't get over 300 Electoral Votes. Other than that; no.

    Romney is circling the drain.
