    Obama is ahead for sure.. but National Polls are meaningless for the Presidential Election because votes aren't counted that way. At this point one has to look at the combined state polls and their relativity to the National Electoral map - which has Obama MUCH farther ahead of Romney. Mitt has no chance.

    The basic problem is American stupidity. They have been taught that a man who has earned his own money is somehow immoral while a career politician who has never earned a dime on his own is some sort of saint.That's just ass backward.

    Additionally, the average voter is lazy would rather follow Follywood's lead than think for him/herself.

    Also, if you remove the welfare recipients, felons, and illegal voters, Romney would have a huge lead .

    I hope you realize that Obama is the one who has earned what he has, whereas Romney got his money from birth, and it appears Bain was funded by nasty (drug-culture) Salvadorians.

    Were you aware that Romney gave away his entire inheritance to charity and EARNED everything he has ? Of course you weren't. You just swallowed the Chicago-style Kook-Aid and asked for more. And where in the world did you come with Salvadoran drug cartels ? Even by Obama-sized lies, that's whipper. Try thinking. It may give you a headache at first, but you will get used to it.

    His problem is Ron Paul and the fact that he has stated that he supports NDAA and The Patriot Act. I do think that he would be an improvement over Obama. But then that is not saying much as it would be easy to improve on him.

    Romney might be down in the national polls, but he's getting SO much money from Wall Street. If he keeps out fundraising Obama that alone could turn the tide. Plus people aren't paying attention to the recent slow down in manufacturing or the economic problems in Europe and China. It doesn't matter if Romney is a subpar candidate if those things drag the whole economy down further by November.

    Well in a sane system no, but it's obviously rare for someone to outspend a candidate and still lose. I think Kerry technically raised more money than Bush but not by the insane margins Romney has been leading Obama by. Wisconsin showed just how much SuperPAC cash could help out a politician with mediocre approvals when Walker won by 7% in his own recall.

    Romney is a MUCH better public speaker than John McCain. That being said, he cannot compete with Obama...that man has too damn much charisma, and he uses it. I never liked President Obama, but if you listen long enough to him speaking, you almost WANT to believe him. Romney lacks that SPARK...but polls have been wrong...crossing my fingers.

    In order to achieve the nomination of the Party of No, Romney must claim to support the positions of RWNJs on "issues" they have created. He is so burdened by these arguments and whinings that he has alienated large portions of even long-time Republicans. The RNC didn't learn anything from the defeat in 2008 and will learn nothing from the defeat of 2012. Theirs is a determination to capture all the sources of power that money can buy, and the money, else just leave a scorched earth until next time.

    It's going to come down to the debates.
    If Obama can sell his lies one more time, he'll win again.

    Sad thing is, most Americans will buy his lies a second time . . .
    due to a failed education system and our derelict media.

    I agree with you. The RWNJs are mostly undereducated sorts and even FOX propaganda and a few talk show pundits cannot make enough of them to win the forthcoming election. Maybe by mid-century the Republican Party can be reclaimed by "We the people", from the grasp of the "Top 2% Club", and return itself to decency and again elect a President. Let's hope so.
