    What’s Going On In Ohio? By Amy Walter Oct 26, 2012 Or, why does Obama continue to hold a small lead in that state while national polls have the race a dead heat. The three most recent Ohio polls (CNN, Time, and CBS/Quinnipiac) show President Obama with a lead of 4-5 points. Meanwhile, the latest ABC/Washington Post national tracking poll has the race a dead heat, with Romney at 49 percent and Obama at 48 percent. How is that possible? Three things: Democrats, white voters, and men. 1) The Democratic advantage in the Ohio polls is anywhere from 3-9 points...

    Today marks the birthday of a puppy named "Fudge." The guest of honor would be two years of age today, but her life was ended before she even reached her first birthday. Back on March 22, 2011, Fudge, who was just five months of age, was seized from her family in Liverpool because she was considered to a "dangerous dog" based upon nothing more than her looks. Within one hour of being seized from her family, the beautiful puppy with the silky, soft fur and the captivating eyes, was dead. Even though the young puppy had never hurt anyone or...

    When Barack Obama called Mitt Romney a bull******* in a Rolling Stone interview recently, it was reminiscent of something involving a man who truly fits that description. What I’m referring to has to do with the 1990s, an intern, and America’s increasingly interned morality. After Bill Clinton said that he didn’t consider Monica Lewinsky’s services to be sex as he “understood it,” many observers pointed out that his lawyering of lasciviousness was influencing the young. “Hey, even the president, a Rhodes Scholar, says it isn’t sex!” It’s what you call trickle-down decadence. And now what Clinton did for intimate relations,...

Obama was the choice of 49 percent of likely voters, to 43 percent who backed Romney in the survey conducted for the newspaper by a bipartisan team of pollsters. The new numbers came out as one Republican group made a television ad buy on Friday that might signal a last-minute Romney push in Pennsylvania.

Mitt Romney, we also engage our viewers by asking their opinion about the candidates’ performances in presenting the policies and platform of their respective parties.

Today, as African American voters look at electing the first black president to a second term, there is support tinged with disappointment and defensiveness. There are worries about President Obama's support for gay marriage, worries about the economy and worries about life under a Mitt Romney administration. There are fewer thoughts about making historic strides and quieter worries about history slipping away.

    1.47% is the average popular vote difference between presidential candidates in the last three electoral inversions (electoral vote winner is not popular vote winner.) There have been four electoral inversions in US history: 2000, 1888, 1876 and 1824. This calculation excludes 1824 because (1) four candidates won electoral votes, (2) the winner was decided by the House of Representatives because no candidate won a majority of the electoral votes, and (3) some states did not conduct popular votes. Summary: 2000: Gore: 48.4%. Bush: 47.9%. Diff.: 0.5%. 1888: Cleveland: 48.6%. Harrison: 47.8%. Diff.: 0.8%. 1876: Tilden: 51.0%. Hayes: 47.9%. Diff.: 3.1%....

    At this point in an election cycle, many campaign staffers are busy fighting the press on what they call “process stories.” The candidates and their staffs want to talk about their plans and policies while reporters covering them find their audiences demand a play-by-play of the horse race. The result is constant overstuffing of campaign metrics and polling that only serve to muddy the waters for most political observers. In a close race, such as we have today, there is often plenty of data for both sides to use to their favor. One poll says this, another says that.

    Section 256 of the Alabama Constitution dictates that "separate schools shall be provided for white and colored children, and no child of either race shall be permitted to attend a school of the other race." Other portions describe how poll tax revenue should be used.

Alabama voters on Nov. 6 will get a second opportunity to remove the Jim Crow language after a similar measure was defeated in 2004. But some African-American legislators, as well...

Many African-American preachers have already indicated that Obama hasn't done anything for black people and that his views on gay marriage do not match their own.

The government taskforce comment is meaningful. It means that during President Obama's first term, an HHS-supported advisory board recommended that women's health care be rationed. This is the same entity that more recently recommended that men do without the PSA test, the standard prostate cancer screening procedure. Admittedly, this is a different HHS-supported independent advisory board, but maybe Mitt Romney was on...

    Even in vividly blue California, President Obama's luster has faded since his historic victory here in 2008, a new poll has found. Despite his sizable lead over Mitt Romney, the president is unlikely to repeat his historic 2008 margin of victory here because of his diminished power to pull in people who don't traditionally support Democrats, according to the USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll. The drop in appeal across party and demographic lines has translated, at this point, to a 14-point edge over the Republican nominee among likely voters — well below Obama's 24-point victory in 2008, the biggest margin...

This race hasn’t been the same since the first debate. Mitt Romney’s rout of a beleaguered and bored-looking Barack Obama dramatically altered the trajectory of the race from leaning strongly to the president to a toss-up/leaning Romney. The president bounced back somewhat in the second debate, and was much stronger in the final debate Monday night, but he’s still not been able to regain the momentum he lost...

    The Obama vs Netanyahu political bloodbath has a sharp historical edge. When the conservative Israeli Prime Minister won the election during the Clinton Administration, Clinton used his political hit men to force him out of office. One of those hit men was Stanley Greenberg.Stanley Greenberg helped push Israel’s earlier version of Occupy Wall Street. Now with elections coming up, Greenberg is back in Israel to try and topple Netanyahu one more time.While Netanyahu’s reelection prospects are looking far better than Obama’s, a major factor in Obama’s Middle East policy is getting rid of Netanyahu. The Labor party has hired...

    s the number of unemployed, underemployed soared, as record numbers of people joined the ever easy route to purchasing food with food stamps, President Barack (D) and Michelle Obama (D) felt their pain as only true Democrats could.

Sure, inviting visiting international heads of state over to the (taxpayer supported) house or to a fine dining establishment for an elegant dinner is a legitimate business expense, as...

    When Mitt Romney chose not to directly engage President Obama on Libya in last Monday’s third presidential debate, the mainstream media wrote it off as over-caution on the Republican challenger’s part. That might be true. Certainly a lot of Republicans think so. But what is the mainstream media’s excuse for cautiously engaging the president on Libya? Aren’t we supposed to be watchdogs? The ongoing story is story focused on whether the Obama administration provided, or refused to provide, adequate protection for the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya when it faced the threat of attack on Sept. 11. The attack left...

    When it comes right down to it, President Obama is lawless in the majority of ALL his doings. Behind that media crafted image OF compassion, godless euphemisms and great intellect, lies a godless, cold, vindictive, narcissistic relativist and reprobate only interested in destroying anything that has to do with the laws of nature and of nature’s God (Rom. 1:18-32, Jude 1:10). President Obama is anti constitutional, anti founding fathers, anti morality, anti life, anti conservative, anti business, anti capitalist, anti Judeo/ Christian values, anti Bible and thus anti Almighty God (Rom. 1:18-32). He is pro abortion, pro partial birth abortion,...
