In the presidential contest, registered voters give a slight edge to the incumbent, with 45% saying they intend to support Barack Obama in this years election compared to 41% for Mitt Romney. That advantage narrows to 46% 45% among American voters who are considered the most likely to vote at this time. In June, Obamas lead in the Monmouth University Poll was 46% to 42% among registered voters and 47% to 46% among likely voters. Independent voters are split 40% for Romney to 37% for Obama. Obama claims 87% support among Democrats and Romney has 87% of the Republican vote.

I don't know if that is good or bad. I've heard that historically, minorities such as blacks and Hispanics don't vote. I don't know if that means they are registered but don't bother or if they just don't register. If getting that 55% up means having more minorities vote and we know they vote democrat that 55% might be a good thing.
Obama’s made up 47%
Romney’s 4/5ths count at 46%
That Akin fallout is going to have untold reach.. way beyond MO.. if he`s not replaced immediately.
November jobs report..
The pre-election Friday is 2 Nov. Generally the BLS waits more than a couple days to release the figures.. If they`re good news for 0bama, they`ll move Heaven and earth to get them out by the 2nd, though.
“3-day news cycle and this story is over”
Not with the dems running the media. They, along with the DNC can keep this story alive as long as they find it useful to them.
No currr about about abortion issues except the hard core activists from both sides. Period.
This election is going to be about what it’s always about; the economy. And conservatives are more likely to be values voters anyway. His comment was dumb but a candidate from MO is hardly gonna hurt RR three months from now after all the debates and conventions are done. It’s still gonna be about: the economy.
I wonder sometimes if some of these don’t even know they have been registered. Motor voter, etc. it would not surprise me at all to find the Democrat would be the “default” choice..
A downturn in the number and percentage of Republican voters going to the polls seemed to be the primary explanation for the lower than predicted turnout, the report said. Compared to 2004, Republican turnout declined by 1.3 percentage points to 28.7 percent, while Democratic turnout increased by 2.6 points from 28.7 percent in 2004 to 31.3 percent in 2008.
Let the despicable, deceptive, destructive, and dysfunctional 0bama think he’s ahead.
Could be. Being registered with a particular party can and will get you barraged with ads and solicitations for contributions. That sounds just like what the dems would do.
I cannot imagine the liberal jackasses in charge of that show would EVER invite Romney or Ryan to be on the show BEFORE the election.
I think Akin will step down eventually. But I don’t think it’s going to hurt as bad as people seem to believe. This is one race out of many others and STILL the most important thing is the economy. It might make a difference with SOME women (the idiots who would already vote for Obama) but otherwise I don’t see it being that bad.
ROTFL! What's a Monmouth University Poll?
We were at a family reunion a few weeks ago when a number of people began to discuss the Presidential election. I was shocked at their comments because there were many career Dems present who will not vote for Obama again.
I don’t think I have. Ever even been up there. my sis lives in Syracuse and going there is like a another state. To me.
R&R have both condemned what Akin said and should stick to what they have so far done well, talking about the economy and jobs, jobs, jobs. Every question from the presstitutes about Akins should be met with 4 words, “we condemn his words” and an immediate segue into their economy and jobs message.
