    :oops::offtopic:
    Even today as Rasmussem came out with his latest poll, Romney is ahead with a comfortable lead. All you have to do is look at the history of polling 6/7 months before an election. We all know that any President who polled around 45-49% prior to re-election lost. Just like with Jimmy Carter.
    The liberal/democratic commentators will boast how/when Obama has a 3 point lead over Romney, yet they wont speak of the 8 to 10 per-cent who are undecided. In every election as far back as when Jesus and Moses were around, the undecided went for the challanger, often close to 80% of them.
    So gee, hmm, Why Can't Obama Ever Poll Between 50 to 55% as we get closer to November? :dunno::slap::smoke:

    There is a long, long way to go, but history says that when a POTUS is under 50% approval, that 10% undecided breaks hard to the 'insurgent.'

    Election held today = Obama getting his ass kicked.

    I am confident of only two things regarding the General Election -
    1) there will be an election in November 2012
    2) the outcome will be very close.

    like i mentioned a few times, Romney needs to give Ron Paul a prominent position in the cabinet,,,we all know that will excite the base and eat away at Yobama's college votes.

    Romney doesnt even have to flip the tri-fector states to win, he will take New Hampshire, Iowa, Nevada,Virginia,North Carolina, maybe even Wisconsin(in that case we have to see how big a victory Scott Walker gets), If Walker wins 55/45,,,,it could mean trouble for Obama.

    Depends on which polling you use ;)

    Polls are funny like that, unfortunately.
