When you have 50 percent of Americans who pay ZERO taxes and more people now on welfare than ever in our nation’s history, yeah, there are many many Americans who prefer living under Communist rule than live in Capitalism. If Obama is re-elected it will be the destruction of the United States of America, hope to God somehow Romney pulls it out and wins

I read Rasmussen’s numbers the same way. Ras has Obama up 2 points in Florida and 1 point in Ohio on his map.

That means if held today the fat lady would be singing.

Throw in true conservatives who will not vote for either Romney or Hussein, and that pretty much wraps it up.

Except for Bush in 2000, for the last 20 years New Hampshire has lived up to the “Live Free” part of the slogan. With the hand outs given in 2000, I guess they voted that way then as well. I suspect the same thing happened there as elsewhere, people decided that the public schools should solely educate their children and did not check back on what they were learning.

I live in a neighboring state to NH. While watching the NFL yesterday on a station whose broadcast reaches into NH, I saw several obnoxious Obamugabe ads but ZERO Romney ads. I believe one reason Obama is leading in NH is because Romney is holding back on advertising. Big mistake.

If we don’t snag Ohio, we’ll need to run the table.

But that is very do-able.

Also, Nevada and New Hampshire are still in play. New Mexico may be in play....but probably leans zero as of now.

The crazy thing with Ohio is that early voting will begin very soon. So we had better have a GOTV effort there. Cuz, the dead will vote often.

Did you expect them to be stupid and not care about them them them?

You thought maybe they should be willing to self-sacrifice and let Ryan cut off their support before either candidate presented a clear plan of how they were going to get the economy going again?

He is close in Ohio and in Florida. I’m an Ohioan. Let me assure you that Romney is running virtually no ads here that I’m seeing.

Obama, on the other hand, is in downtown Cincinnati today.

I don’t know Romney’s strategy, but I think it’s “Hail Mary in the closing seconds of the 4th quarter.”

He should have chose Doug Flutie as his VP candidate.

Actually, I don’t think this shows too much. I think it shows a close election without revealing much else.

Look, the real problem is not the 50% who pay little or no taxes, or those on the dole. The real probem is the corrupt progaganda MSM. We are like a frog in a stove pot filled with water. The water is getting hotter and we can see it all around us and yet the corrupt MSM keeps telling everyone that the water’s fine. No problem. If Obama is reelected we will surely all boil — but the MSM doesn’t care.

MO is NOT going for Obama if they didn’t in 2008...that is just ridiculous to even think it. NC is definitely going Romney. Romney also gets IN. Now for the rest, he needs to get working. Forget PA, NV, MI and all the other dreams and get crackin’ on Virginia, Florida and Ohio. That is where the focus should be exclusively.

Those 12 states are the entire election. Unfortunately, Romney is going to need to win at least 8 of them to win. Be on your knees, folks. By prayer, we can succeed. We can’t expect much help from anywhere else.

Remember 2000? Either the Democrats screwed up Palm Beach County or (my view) God intervened to screw up the Democrats plans to stuff the ballot in Palm Beach County and gave those votes to Buchanan.

I realize many of you don’t believe Romney is a Christian but that doesn’t mean God won’t have a hand in this election. Woe to us all if He believes that America needs to be destroyed by re-electing Obama.

The Obama vote in Ohio is in the inner cities, and that’s where he’s at in Hamilton County today. The more he pushes his numbers up there, the more the suburbs, exurbs, and rural vote gets neutralized.

It’s real close here, Sarah. Always is despite what dishonest pollsters say. Rasmussen is about the only one who has it right. He has it nearly dead even.

Most here say that MSM is dead. Are you saying it is alive and well? I don’t blame the Democrats for having MSM. I blame the Republicans for not having the same type of mechanism. Why doesn’t the rich conservatives start a new station or two or three? It is ridiculous to blame MSM who is for the Democrats when the Conservatives don’t even try to get a tv channel going. Fox News was a conservative channel but the conservatives let it go to the waistside. Conservatives have a lock on radio and internet for the most part. I don’t see MSM folks complaining about that.

I dont think Obama will get as much of the black vote as he did in 2008. That is why I think these poll numbers are skewed, they are reflecting the 2008 numbers. I think this time it will reflect the 2004 numbers which is the norm. Rasmussen is the most reliable I do agree with that but Romney is going to win NC and MO as well so soon he will need to put that in the Romney column

“Throw in true conservatives who will not vote for either Romney or Hussein, and that pretty much wraps it up. “

If that turns out to be the case, then we can blame the death of our nation on “true conservatives” as much as anyone else.

I consider myself a true conservative, shell-backed even, and I will vote for Romney with a vengeance because it will an effective vote towards removing the great Communist Usurper, in fact the ONLY effective vote I can make that will help remove The Great Destroyer.

This happens every election. They call the GOP the stupid party for a reason.

In 1980 there were Liberal Republicans working feverishly to sabotage Reagan. To a certain segment of the GOP being on the speed dial list of the Democrat Propaganda machine in the media is more important then defeating the Democrat Progressive Fascist political machine

Too bad a certain segment of “Conservatives” is more worried about their egos then the future of the country.

Bingo!

You should use a prophet's name for your freeper handle!

However, the MSM will not change just because we complain. Instead, they probably pat each other on the back when we complain.

What needs to be done is to find a way around their lock on widely broadcast, entertainment, immediate news, and commentary.

At this point, the only thing that will work is a door-to-door ground campaign.

The problem is he doesn’t need to pick up any more states, he just has to work not to lose to many. He had 352 electors last time. That is 70 more than needed so he can afford to lose some. Romney needs to ADD to his total quickly.

Who watches the corrupt alphabet networks and cable news? The elderly in FL and elwhere across the country and the less educated and lower-income groups. And the Oprah women crowd are incapable of detecting media bias.

It is these people who are Obama supporters or who call themselves independants and who sway like a reed in the political wind.

Combined, these people make up the Democrat majority and are very easily pursuaded by popular opinion as stage managed by the corrupt MSM.

I have no idea why guys like Rove (Crossroads) don’t try to counter that or why FOX has gone totally limp.

Obama is below 50% in each and every one of those tossup states. For obama to win you have to assume that all historical trends that show 'undecideds' breaking for the challenger will be broken this year in favor of obama. I don't buy it.

The fact is that these people really aren't undecided. They've had 4 years of life with obama. They know whether or not they want 4 more and my guess is they don't.

This is a toss up, plain and simple. I'm thinking at this point the R's are a bit more motivated, in spite of Romney not motivating us very much. It could go either way, in any of these toss up or leaning states.

cheating will be less a factor this year in Ohio. Republicans won the Secretary of State job last time it was up for grabs.

The Ohio SecSt runs elections.

The name of the game for republicans is “ground game”. If they go shock’n’awe with their ground game, then they’ll win.

If they can’t get the troops to do so, then they’ll lose.
