They fall back into the shadows when one favours their guy."He's gone crazy," "You have to snap out of it," "Take your meds," or, "Don't be such a downer" serve only to mock, belittle, and make light of mental illness. Such phrases only continue the negative stigma and keep those who suffer from getting help. If these phrases, or phrases like them, are part of your at-hand vocabulary, you are part of the problem. #STOPtheStigma

I'm not going to say Pew is bad at polling but a 12 point swing? Either their first poll wasn't good or this poll wasn't good or both weren't. You don't get a swing that large after one debate.Trade Bucket: Hidden Content

Absolutely NOTHING in the end.
You do realize that the ONLY thing that matters in the electoral college.....allow me to present you it ONE more time:
^This is updated DAILY and nothing has changed too much.....Obama still wins by a very sizable margin. (332 - 206)
Even if by some miracle Romney wins the popular vote, Obama still wins the election.Logic and Reason is all you need.

A presidential election prediction model developed by two University of Colorado professors points to a big win for GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney in November.
The model, the only of its kind to use more than one state-level economic indicator, has correctly predicted the winner of every presidential election since 1980.
It predicts Romney winning the electoral college by a 320-218 margin and winning 52.9 percent of the popular vote when only the two major parties’ candidates are considered, the Associated Press reported Thursday.

That Colorado model has every swing state going Romney. Highly unlikely. You can claim all you want that it's been right every other time.
Know what else was right every time until 2004? The winner of the Washington Redskins' game the week before the election. Past correctness does not imply any sort of correctness in the present or future.

^OK....so you're going with a prediction based on assumptions that are NOT reflected by what we see right now.
I'm giving you an up-to-date electoral map which has been consistent for months.
But whatever, I'll give you credit, at least you were able to give me a link to why you think Romney will win.Logic and Reason is all you need.
