    Watching the gay-hating Mitt Romney try to get to 270 electoral votes is going to be comical.

    This is indeed good news !!! Lets hope the Repubs continue to spend their millions on spin and taking their message to new lieing limits to totally convinse the public that Romney is not who we need in the white house.

    Certainly pleased with the results you gave.... I've been trying to watch the polls in the swing states, which currently look very good. Wish I had seen something from Ohio of late (but most of the polls I have seen, show Obama in very good shape). Certainly it would be nice to have Obama further ahead in Iowa and N. Carolina (but this is North Carolina for pete's sake) and Florida.

    Keep it a going!

    It is very encouraging to see Obama continuing to lead in virtually all swing states. Unless something major changes between now and election day, Romney's loss will be major and humiliating.
    I am also thrilled to see the formerly solid-GOP South beginning to enter the 21st Century -- Obama with a significant lead in Virginia and about tied in N.Carolina. In another few years, both states will be solidly blue, as more and more educated young professionals move into those states, and the GOP has nothing left to offer but embarrassing religious fundamentalism and ignorant homophobic gay-bashing.

    The Republicans have doubled down on the pro-bigotry platform and endless ass kissing of the religious fundies, all to hang onto the South. If the GOP starts losing that too, it could be the end of the party.

    Ohio or Florida would be icing on the cake, but Obama doesn't need them. If he holds Virginia and New Mexico he'll probably win the election by a nose.

    In a nutshell:

    1. Obama's lead in these states is temporary. It results from his campaign burning through their money, while the Romney campaign, the GOP, and all the SuperPACs have been relatively quiet the past few weeks. That will change with a highly funded, coordinated attack.

    2. The Obama campaign strategy has been to throw things out and see what sticks. Interesting that they chose to campaign on a Washington Post story on outsourcing that was completely discredited. It did give him a boost, and if an opponent had limited funds to respond, it could be successful. But that is not the case, and it will be discredited.

    3. The polls are impacted by these campaign ads, but the fundamentals for Obama are not good at all. http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/2517231 Furthermore, if you look at the ABC News / Washington Post poll in terms of key questions http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/2515197 specifically regarding the economy, health care, and direction of the country, they are negative for Obama, and in some cases, highly negative.

    4. What these negatives mean is if an opponent is considered acceptable and the opposing campaign is executed well, Obama's poll numbers will decrease, consistent with the disapproval assessments of his performance.

    5. Prior to the Supreme Court ruling, Obama and key Democrats did not want to discuss health care because the law is so unpopular. Now they have to because the Republicans definitely will.

    6. Enjoy the polls now, because they won't last for long.

    One can only hope. Change is needed. Good for Obama and good for the country. The tide is turning hopefully. icon_smile.gif

    Gotta love it. The right's wishful thinking is all predicated on one thing: "if the opponent is acceptable and the campaign is executed well, Obama is toast."

    Unfortunately for them, they nominated Cayman Island Romney. #epicfail

    Won't stick either. Already come out that many prominent Democrats incl Wasserman-Schultz have overseas accounts. Most people with even relatively small portfolios have international investments in their portfolios. Diversification. It is not unusual for a wealthy person to have assets overseas which IRS asks about as part of income tax prep. No big deal. They are just blowing more smoke.

    Hahahahahahaha. Yeah, Debbie Wasserwhomever's bank accounts are really going to be a major Presidential campaign issue. Hahahaha.

    Oh boy. So Mitt Romney is not the only GOPer with his head buried in the sands of the Cayman Islands. But whatevs. I actually prefer Republicans to go on believing Rich Mitt's tax evasion is playing well in Ohio (hehe).

    Actually getting funny how desparate the Dems are throwing everything out they can think of. Obama aids say Romney possible felon, H Reid says he's paid no taxes for 12 years. Just wait for the SuperPACs, etc. to fire back. But kind of funny seeing all the things the Democrats are thinking up.

    What's funny is Romney's impossible path to 270 electoral votes. The gOP should just hang it up and recruit Rubio for 2012.

    The nation's anti-gay, anti-freedom, anti-equality, pro-homophobia party is electoral toast.





    Yup.

    But idiot Romney's harshly anti-Latino rhetoric and policies are the real killer for Mitt.

    Romney needs 40+% of the Latino vote to have a chance of winning - but he only has a meager 25%.

    Even McCain got 31% - but still lost.

    With only 25% of the Latino vote - Romney has no chance of winning.

    Rick !!! I'd bet that the more known about Romney the more Latino votes he'll lose. He's hell bent on swinging far right toward the Christian Fundi's, baggers and birthers and with that in mind he'll be steadily alienating the average American.

    Business InsiderThe new poll from the Pew Research Center is, plain and simple, the worst yet for Mitt Romney.

    Not only has President Barack Obama expanded his overall lead from 4 points to 7 points, he also leads on almost every individual issue, including the economy and jobs.

    Overall, Obama beats Romney on 11 of the 12 issues, including some of the most crucial ones:

    That is not fair. Romney is clearly well ahead on more issues than are shown in this poll.

    Who would do the best job of...
    Keeping his money in Switzerland + 100% Romney
    Keeping his money in Bermuda + 100% Romney
    Keeping his money in the Cayman Islands + 100% Romney
