Most now realize that he's a socialist and that if reelected this country will be in worse shape than it is now. Romney may not be the most outgoing candidate but at least we won't have to worry about the USA becoming another Greece. So I'll be betting Romney to win the election because the odds are right and bacause Obama is bad for this nation.

the optimal strategy is trying to get people to vote for romney... not trying to get people not to vote for obama or even worse against him after then voted for him...

Better yet, what does he have to offer??

Fraud, fumbles, and darn ups.


No garbage, and the worst part is that he is going win easily.

I didn't vote for the guy, but I was more than willing to see what he had to offer. What a friggin joke that turned out to be and what an idiot that I am.

Too bad the GOP couldn't get it right and nominate their best candidate, Ron Paul.

I think the GOP got it right...  paul was/is the most conservative candidate and by not choosing him they have shown the entire wold that GOP and conservatism do not really go together any more...  perhaps quite the opposite

obama a shaky fave @ -150 on various sites. With all the built in advantages, that's a very soft favorite at this point.

In psychology and logic, rationalization (also known as making excuses[1]) is an unconscious defense mechanism in which perceived controversial behaviors or feelings are logically justified and explained in a rational or logical manner in order to avoid any true explanation, and are made consciously tolerable – or even admirable and superior – by plausible means.

Obama is doing the same thing.

He's not running on "Vote for me because I've done this."

He's running on "Don't vote for Romney because he hates women. Don't vote for Romney because he has a Swiss bank account. Don't vote for Romney because he closed a factory and a woman died of cancer. Don't vote for Romney because he put his dog on the roof of his car."

I always thought that GOP/Teaparty was waging the war on women... not romney specifically

I actually dont listen to what obama or liberals have to say about romney... just like I dont listen to teaparty/right wingers cut/paste crap about obama...

as an undecided voter you hear me asking alot about the positive about romney and not the negatives... and what his actual plans are other then not being obama...

I think that huckbee's comment about romney looking like the guy that laid you off resonates more with me then what obama or dems say...

I also think that although I did not agree with santorum's stances I knew what they were and what I would be voting for with him...  santorum calling romney the etch-a-sketch resonates more with me then attacks on a dog being strapped to a car as a mindless reaction to the desperate attacks of obama being served dog as a child...

To me the fact that he will not release his tax returns actually means more to me then what we would learn from it...  if he did undesirable things as a businessman trying to make as much money as possible I see it as doing his job... his running and hiding like a frightened child is a character issue that does not sit well with me at all... I believe it was a GOP governor or mayor from the south that urged romney to release the tax records because it it is extremely damaging to the perception of his character...

as an undecided voter the smear campaign does not help and I really tune that stuff out...

Got Republicans +160. 
The Newsweek article - "Hit The Road Barrack" is HUGE
Obama losing the Senior vote (MediCare)
Obama losing the Youth vote (not the same as 2004)
Obama has a Senile VP -"20th Century"," Put you in Chains"
Might not be a landslide, but Dems have no momentum

if ahmadinejad came over to the US with his money, wore some makeup to look lighter, changed his name but kept all of his core religious beliefs yet changed the label from muslim to christian, how many districts would he win to become a congressman? 90% of red districts?

Consider this first.. Obama is a better speaking, you must agree... so when it comes to debate time.. Obama will own Robney.

And when it comes to ad-libbing and especially gaffes..Mitt Robney will make Biden look like Winston Churchill.

So what the numbers tell us is that ryan has severely effected romney's chances in a negative way... that romney made a poor chioce that has negatively effected his campaign....

either that or obama has suddenly made himself more appealing which I doubt is what has driven such a drastic shift in odds...

perhaps romney can flip flop and chose another candidate and then when that doesnt work flip flop back to ryan...
