Oh, boy. Another race to the bottom.
The most dangerous 2 months in American history will be those between BO’s loss on November 6 and that day in January 2013 when his successor takes the oath. With truly nothing to lose, I won’t be surprised if he declassifies millions and millions of secrets, outs our CIA agents overseas, and issues Executive Orders that move us toward deeper debt and cultural destruction.
Better that, though, than 4 more years of this assclown.
The msm campaign should kick off soon. We are about to measure the attention span and credulity of the US voter.
Historically, if Obama had a lot of hope he would be beating the pants off of his presumptive opponent now. Mitt hasn’t even been formally proclaimed the GOP candidate yet and nobody knows who his VP would be. Bad juju for Obama and truly, it is far more a reflection of how terrible, lousy, awful, stinking bad Obama is, than how “good” Romney is. Romney is the Republican ham sandwich made from half a loaf of moldy bread.
I notice the poll was a 5 day rolling poll they used to be 3 day rolling wonder why they changed it.
Don't worry people. Virgil Goode will take care of that ugly "tie" thing.
Many people who say they support Obama will not be voting for him. They will either stay home or secretly vote for Romney.
The MSM is going to try to make Mitt Romney look “too conservative.” Mitt has got to be grinning and thinking “yeah throw me in that briar patch!”
Obama has a clear ceiling of support. Bad news for him.
In incumbent elections where the incumbent is unpopular, the electorate is looking to see if the challenger is acceptable. If he is, the incumbent usually loses handily.
That is an over simplistic explanation, but it is bad news for Obama.
Said campaign has been in full gear since January, 2009. I suspect the bloom is well and truly off the rose.
An incumbent president has to be at 50% or better to have much of a chance of being re-elected. This is basically good news, i.e. Romney does not appear to be anybody’s first choice, but Bork Obunga being re-elected would be catastrophic.
Not a whole lot of people are familiar with Mitt Romney’s worst issues, with which Freepers are all too familiar. If he keeps on talking a good talk this year and does not flip flop in the spotlight, most Americans won’t care.
Short of war, or some other earth shattering even, will not manage more than 43% in November.
The real numbers are:
Why? Because 80+ percent of undecideds go to the challenger. Happens almost every election.
Does that factor in massive vote fraud?
