Posted on 07/21/2012 9:16:32 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
When the New York Times produce a poll showing a Republican in the lead, that in itself is news. That's exactly what the legendary liberal flagship of the Democratic Party printed this week.
Economic concerns are clearly the foremost issue on voters minds.
The new poll shows Romney clearly in front for the first time since becoming the presumptive Republican nominee. Even after months of negative advertising and attacks on his position at Bain Capital, Romney is clearly in the lead over incumbent Barack Obama.
The New York Times/CBS News Poll provided opinions on President Obama's handling of the economy and the dramatic shift that has taken place since April. Thirty-nine percent approve while 55 percent expressed disapproval. Back in April the numbers were far closer with 44 percent approval to 48 percent negative.
So what does that mean?
The Republicans were well aware that Romney would face ferocious criticism from the press (New York Times, Washington Post, etc.) and Democrats over his highly successful tenure at Bain Capital and his tax returns. Those anxieties have proven to be marginal among registered voters as 45 percent expressed they would vote for Romney today over the 43 percent that would favor Obama.
With undecideds thrown into the mix, Romney wins 47 percent to 46 percent in the poll conducted between July 11 and 16, including 982 registered voters...

Looking pretty bad for Barama. All this agonizing about how Mitt will supposedly campaign so lousily... Barama is his BFF as far as campaigning is concerned. Barama makes Mitt look like Reagan.
What is news about TNYT lying? Romney is a LIBERAL who is an imposter to the Repub party. How else could the liberals gain control of what we believe and push their agenda including their filth.
What part of pipe dreaming do you like best - the fantasy part or just the dream part?
Romney is no good. Mutiny and political chaos at the convention. Let’s do it.
Not to the cognoscenti of course — but to the average unwashed American who only knows Mitt from his current campaigns.
So I take it you prefer Obama over Mitt going by your comment.
Which won’t do squat in the larger public view, I fear, except create headlines about wingnuts who aren’t copacetic with what all the other major contenders who vied with Mitt for the nomination are now copacetic with.
Taking odds on when this is going to degenerate into “Mittbot!” “Obamabot!”
He makes me puke. I will never vote for this socialist. We will teach the republicrats again like we did Bush 41 and McAmnesty. They can truly go to hell.
Rishing you rotsa ruck. Mitt can tolerate a jab or two, it comes with the biz. I’d suggest about a thousand signs in Tampa reading “why isn’t Sarah here”? And then resign yourself to what’s going to follow. Mitt will mop the floor with Barack, and a furious lame duck Barack will then proceed to bollux up the system any way he can.
The Perfect Quote
Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way that you can quickly understand them.
This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out. It was translated into English from an article in the Prague newspaper, Prager Zeitungon.
The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.
The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their President.
I’m voting Mitt silly underware and all just cuz I don’t care it’s new drapes on the abandoned building of our national soul. DIE WELL FR”S
Yup. It was really hard for me to grok HOW Barack could have gotten the following he did. It was like mass hypnosis.
This new kneejerk, gun grab effort by the communist DemocRATS is really going to hurt the Kenyan in November. Decent Americans do not appreciate all of the ‘RAT exploitation of the “Batman massacre” that is going on right now. The actions of the ‘RATS this weekend are disgraceful and despicable. But, with America in the sewer, what else do they have? Nothing.
I am voting for the one that isn’t Obama
“What is news about TNYT lying? Romney is a LIBERAL who is an imposter to the Repub party. How else could the liberals gain control of what we believe and push their agenda including their filth. “
If Romney wins, he will bring the GOP sweep of the downticket. If Obama wins, Pelosi will be speaker of the House again.
I dont think this is so much a love for Romney, as it is a distaste for Obama. +IF+ this result is real, then this is a massive problem for Obama.
Romney is a LIBERAL. What is so hard to understand about that? Other than more proof to his endless list of deceptions!
And don’t try godless Romney’s fear tactic on me - it doesn’t work on the faithful ONLY the faithless.
You’re quite right - a perfect summation.
