    Sharon Zambrelli voted for Obama in 2008 but has been disappointed with his handling of the economy and leadership style. “I was very disenchanted with the political process and he gave me hope,” she said, but ultimately: “He’s just a politician,” she said, an “emperor with no clothes.”

    The Zambrellis scoffed at attempts by the Democrats — who mocked Romney in an ad Sunday as “great for oil billionaires, bad for the middle class” — to wage class warfare. “Would you like to hear about the fundraisers I went to for him?” Sharon Zambrelli said of Obama. “Do you have an hour? … All the ones in the city — it was all of Wall Street.”

    “It’s not helping the economy to pit the people who are the engine of the economy against the people who rely on that engine,” Michael Zambrelli said as the couple waited in their SUV for clearance into the Creeks shortly after the candidate’s motorcade flew by and entered the pine-tree lined estate. “He’s basically been biting the hand that fed him in ’08. … I would bet 25% of the people here were supporters of Obama in ’08. And they’re here now.“

    Money was a wonderful thing in 2008, when Barack Obama had so much of it that he became the first major party presidential candidate to turn down federal financing of his campaign. But the worm has turned in 2012. Dismayed by Obama’s lousy record in office, contributors are abandoning his campaign and swinging their support to Mitt Romney. The campaigns have released their June fundraising numbers, and Romney has scored another solid victory.

    Romney raised a remarkable $106.1 million, exceeding his May total by $29 million, and now has $160 million on hand. Romney clobbered Obama, who raised only $71 million.


    Look for more complaints from Democrats over campaign finance reform.

    Sounds like you're referring to a few fringe nuts. Nothing for Obama to worry about.

    He has the votes. American loves him.

    It must be lonely living on the backside of history.

    I am on record as saying that it's going to be a close election. To suggest that Obama has it in the bag or anything like that, suggests I'm not the one who is living at the fringe. But either way, if you accept this isn't a problem then you must also not have a problem with Citizens United/campaign finance as it is.

    Personally, I disregard most polls and check most with the betting markets that best integrate information out there -

    They were however wrong about the constitutionality healthcare bill - but, as it turns out Roberts also changed his mind. It was also far more accurate than other polls when it came to both elections that GW Bush won and also Obama - but also the rise of Republicans in the House.

    Too many Americans love not paying any Fed income taxes. If you think the election is a slam dunk for Obama, you're the one out of touch.
