I am more concerned about the massive voter fraud going on in Ohio right now..they have voting machines when you click on Romney’s name it shows up as Obama..that is what we have to worry about

After a couple days in hiatus, it feels that Romney has regained momentum... The numbers within polls show that Romney is going to win and by a good margin.

I regret that I have but one vote to give to my country.

It's a shame that it will be cast in a deep blue state like Maryland but it will not stop me from casting my vote for Romney/Ryan on November 6th!

This is why everyone has to look at the receipt they get for their vote. If it is wrong, re-vote until it is correct. Take nothing for granted.

Mitt leads by 12 points with independent voters.

This is what isn't showing up in the polls.

Then just change parties, become a Dem, you will have many opportunities to vote more than once.

He did last week.

Indies are closing hard for the Kenyan. Romney only around +4 now.

Probably due to Sandy and Chris Christie’s making out with Obama as they toured the damage.

How independent voters affected the elections from 1988-Present.

“Indies are closing hard for the Kenyan. Romney only around +4 now.”

Where is your evidence for this statement? From MSNBC?

I have my own pet theory on that one...

The Menendez story was about to break, Obama either smooth talked him into this or twisted his arm to do it, or offered him something to take the Menendez story off the pages.

It is a win win for Christy, they do not loose a more Senior Senator even if they are in the minority.

It is better to have better committee assignments regardless of the rumors you have have been with underage hookers vs. having an unknown Republican Senator in your State.

I have another theory...

Christie switches Parties and Runs as a Dem for Pres in 2016, think about it, it makes sense...

Anyway you slice it, Christy crossed a line on this one, that I don't think he can recover from Politically...

I have never seen these numbers. Can you post a link saying Indies are now going for Obama?

Nonsense.

Independents break heavily against the incumbent when he is under 50%.

Not according to Yahoo News (lol)...Obama has a STRONG Iowa lead!

That site is nothing more than an extension of the Obama campaign.

Don’t have a link per se, but the internals in this poll, and the internals in the most recent Rasmussen poll both show it. You should be able to check that thread for more detail.

I’m not all that worried about it, as I expected it in the aftermath of the storm, but we might as well acknowledge it and monitor it.

The poll cited showing the +12 Independents for Romney is a recent one.

Nothing to this, Obama doing photo ops, not accomplishing anything, people still without gas and electricity.

Christie just loves the attention and will go back to obscurity after the election.

I don’t disagree. I expect that to happen as well over the next few days as well.

As long as it does, R/R’s standing in the race gets even stronger.

I do think the hurricane changed things this cycle. My guess is it isn’t a permanent shift, just a temporary blip from Indies who approved of the way Obambi handled the storm response.

My sources are the ABC poll and the Rasmussen poll.

Again, I think it is just a temporary blip which will disappear again before election day.

If it were a permanent move towards the RATs, then the internals on questions like “who is better equipped to handle the economy” would have shifted in their favor as well, and they didn’t.

I love positive thinking...but I think we will be watching totals way into the night.
I’d love to be wrong!
Praying for a Romney win.

Look, what’s not showing up in the polls is intensity. On November 6th, how many apathetic libturds are going to drag their sorry asses out to stand in line to cast a vote for 4 more years like the last 4 years?

Romney/Ryan by a margin of 8% and more than 300 electoral votes.
