GG Romney....well, not really:

Swing States poll with only 40 days to go until election:

Florida: Obama 53 - Romney 44

Ohio: Obama 53 - Romney 43


The GOP needs BOTH these states just to be in the running.....if they lose either, it's over. And with only 6 weeks to go, making up a 10 point deficit is almost impossible in politics.

The only thing remaining are the Debates, and we all know how good Obama is as a speaker and debater....


In other words:

I don't think it's likely that Romney wins, but I'm not willing to write him off. 1 month is a lifetime in the political world. Who knows what gaffe Obama can make/what Romney has left in the arsenal.

I would like to think that it is over but I'm not going to take any chances. I'm going out to vote and I am encouraging everyone else to vote as well. We must keep the pressure on the GOP otherwise face the prospect of 4 years of romney and we cannot afford for that to happen.

Once again it is going to come down to who has the better "get out the vote" organization. I think Obama's is running away with that one.

I don't know, both sides seem over confident right now. Both sides are generally calling for a landslide victory. We know many people simply don't vote if they think their guy is a foregone conclusion. It'll be interesting to see what the voter turnout on this is. I think it'll either be very high or very low.

I think you are making my case. Because of what you say, I think Obama's superior on the ground organization will counter the "stay at home because we are confident" effect, moreso than Romney's.

Romney's base is more gung-ho about politics than Obama's supporters. Either way, I think turnout will be really high or really low and I think it will be a close but decisive Obama victory, though I've been wrong before.

maybe instead of looking at 2008 we should be looking at 2010

He means Romney will win because Republicans did well 2 years ago.

LOL, c'mon, are you serious?

How excited are people to go out and vote for senators and congressmen???

This is the presidency, it's in our face 24/7, obviously more people vote and usually the polls are pretty accurate.


BTW....here are MORE numbers:

Obama's Job approval has increased a bit: http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/other/president_obama_job_approval-1044.html

Obama is viewed as running a more favorable campaign: http://www.mediaite.com/online/61-percent-have-negative-view-of-romneys-handling-of-campaign-poll-says/

Let's NOT forget that the BIGGEST gaffe of the campaign so far was Romney and his "47%" nonsense!

Also.....the GOP has NEVER won the presidency without the state of Ohio.....and like I said, 10 points to make up in 40 days is not realistic.

The only thing left are the debates and that favors Obama, since he is an excellent speaker.


I will say this.....if Romney somehow wins, I might start believing in miracles, because that's the only way he's going to win.

I don't know, God usually has something to do with miracles. That sounds like the work of Satan...

It wont be a miracle but proof that elections are fixed.

Obama wasn't running in 2010 so if that is what he is referring to, he is comparing apples to oranges.

Obviously it's not new. I'm saying it's getting used WAY more than usual the past few days. The same thing happened with "self-righteous" not long ago.
