Ohio and Michigan Battleground State conservatives hold key to Obama Loss
Examiner ^ | August 29, 2012 | Kevin Fobbs

America is at a crucial tipping point in its illustrious history. The socialist minded presidential principles of Obama have joined with millions of illegal aliens who have been given a presidential pass to demand entry through your gates to rights and privileges given citizens. They can ignore federal and state citizenship laws, and walk openly into your cities to demand housing in your neighborhoods. Illegal aliens can insist upon free health care at your hospitals and soon sue for the right to the keys to your child’s college education.

This is not the future in America…This is America today, this is America right now!

There is hope. States like Michigan, Ohio, Florida, Virginia and even Wisconsin that Obama scooped into his electoral column in 2008, are now steadily trending in polls towards Mitt Romney. In fact according to recently released Rasmussen Poll numbers, amongst 11 key swing states, Obama has dropped from 53 percent, in this same period in 2008, to currently 47 percent. Romney comes in at 44 percent and is increasingly closing the voter polling gap.

Most importantly, historically when polls begin to tighten this early in a presidential race, instead of later, the incumbent president is typically shown the door.

You don’t have to believe the polls, just ask your buddies at the unemployment line, or your former co-worker at the grocery store, or even your fellow farmers at the town square and community meetings. Millions like you in the nation are waking up. The president’s deficit spending quagmire which has dragged nearly 23 million families into unemployment and thousands of towns and whole communities into debt, despair and depression is setting an electoral fire under swing state voters...

He should be impeaced for granting amnesty to illegals so they could vote or him alone.

If Romney doesn’t have people searching for election fraud in these states, he deserves to lose, and he will. Absentee ballots should be extremely carefully monitored in every congressional district, or they’ll all have Philly’s 110% voter participation rate inthe ghettos.

I thin the poll numbers are being fudged personally to make have the appearance of having a chance o that is voting base won’t be discouraged and not how up at the voting booths. I think the actual numbers are probably much lower. I predict a landslide victory for Romney.

I realize we'd like very much to believe that, but I'm not sure that's the case. There's still work to do to win over these fuzzy-headed fools who have no clue why the Obamination is such bad medicine.

Romney needs to fight. Things are good this week because it is GOP week. Next week is DNC week and then on to the debates. Romney needs to learn how to bash liberals like himself instead of the conservatives all the time if he wants to win.

My southwest rural part of the state of Ohio almost invariably votes conservative. From all my conversations with neighbors, church-goers, and even casually offered comments by strangers, there is no doubt that our region of the state will vote overwhelmingly against Obama.

In Ohio, that has to outnumber the pro-Obama vote that will come from the cities. That is normal for Ohio, with the past exception of Hamilton County (Cincinnati) being urban but conservative. That has changed, Cincinnati proper now votes liberal. The key, though, has always been to balance the huge number of liberal votes out of the Cleveland, northeast corner of the state with the southwest, conservative region. The two other major cities of Columbus and Toledo must be neutralized by the remainder of the state.

Here in the southwest, though, the numbers are so overwhelmingly anti-Obama that I see little means for him to win short of a huge turnout in the northeast.

As for me, I’m an independent, principled conservative who can vote for neither Obama or Romney, both being anti-life, radical liberals.

Nonetheless, being fair with what I see (and I admit it’s anecdotal), I honestly see Romney up in this state at this point, and I see him winning Ohio.

Yeah, and if even if a small number of “pure” people like yourself cost the election and give obama for 4 more years don’t be surprised when we call you out for it.

Go ahead and call. I’ll not change my opinion of Romney or Obama. Both are radical liberals. The evidence is overwhelming.

But, I do know the state after years of living here, and espcially the southwestern counties. When folks get to the point that they’re afraid to identify that they support a particular candidate, then you know that the tide is huge against him.

I think the DNC convention is going to be a bust with no bounce.

I agree, Romney could win Michigan but it has more to do with how bad Obama is than how good Romney is. After all, Romney had an exceedingly poor showing in the primary and needed a middle of the night rule change to put him on top after his tie with Santorum. In 08, Romney beat McCain in Michigan by 10 points.

That is a legitimate dead heat. Mandel needs money. He’s definitely worth supporting. My reading says he is a pro life conservativeness.

Romney is the first pick of very few people.

Dick Morris was predicting that yesterday. He made the point that their convention will be 100% negative, because they have no positive agenda. The only other completely negative convention in modern times was the Republicans in 1992 when he was Clinton's pollster. It was all about bashing Clinton, and there was no "bounce" at all.

I’m also a SW Ohioan who votes conservative. Unfortunately the GOP decided to nominate Romney instead of a real conservative, so Romney’ll have to figure out how to win OH without me LOL. Not like we didn’t tell those GOP establishment types either.

I believe some of the people on this site are trolls. A few of them cruise through nearly every board and post about nearly nothing else except what a poor choice Romney is and how they are just going to “stay home and not vote” - some are on the boards so frequently that I would not be surprised to find they are paid bloggers for the current administration. I was no John McCain fan but voted for the lesser of the evils. The polls indicate that this election could be close and there is too much at stake to sit this one out.

He’s not my first pick either (not even in the top ten) ... I’ve rhetorically asked “Why would I vote for a guy who was acceptable to the same electorate that put Ted Kennedy and John Kerry in the Senate”.

I recently got my answer ... “Because he hasn’t promised to throw the castle gates open to the encircling barbarian hordes”.
