    :disbelief::slap::eusa_wall:
    First of all, does anyone really care how Obama polls in California, New York and Maryland?
    And why doesn't the MSM ever give us the real numbers? They never give us the "Anyone But Obama" Tally. Which is actually around 49/50%. {also known as the Generic Republican}
    :hmpf::hmpf:
    Any intelligent well informed American knows the election is likely to be decided in a handful of swing states. From easiest swing states to flip from 2008, to the hardest are 1)Indiana, 2)Virginia, 3)North Carolina, 4)Ohio, 5)Florida 6)Colorado, 7)Pennsylvania.
    Gingrich or Romney only need to take five or 6 of them(depending on electoral count)
    But you also have to keep New Hampshire, Iowa, Nevada and Michigan on the back burner.
    :smoke:
    What to really look for to forsee the outcome is how many Republicans/Independents show up in the primarys. If around 65% of all registered voters hit the precincts to vote GOP, Obama has something major to worry about.

    and don't give us that BS that Obama will win Florida because of Rick Scott, our Governor is doing everything he can to bring jobs here,,but Yobama is still a thorn in the states ass with his regulations and health-care.

    I don't live in the 1st seven states--but you really have to feel sorry for those that live in Iowa--New Hampshire & South Carolina. Right now they are getting BOMBARDED with millions of dollars from the Romney pac fund in negative campaign ads against Newt Gingrich--along with robo calls--direct mail, etc. According to polling data they are getting sick and tired of them already-- 3 negative campaign ads every hour.

    But as we saw--Obama/Hillary campaign was a long drawn out affair. It may be that the middle portion of this country along with the western states will actually have a say-so in this primary. At least we can only hope so.

    Just like mid-term in 2010--I expect much more than 65% for republican voters showing up--they will be crawling to the polling stations to vote. They won't miss this one in 2012.

    Don't forget that unless something extremely weird happens, Obama will be running against Mitt Romney,

    who garners enthusiastic support from almost no one.
