All polls indicate is how good a job the press is doing in selling their slant on the candidates. We're still in the opening minutes of the first quarter of the game. Let's wait and see who Romney asks to be his running mate. I'm betting that he'll think outside the box.

"Let's wait and see who Romney asks to be his running mate. I'm betting that he'll think outside the box."

Like John McCain did?

Classic. The posters who come on and tought when a poll released shows Mitt on top, and shows the President's imminent demise, are the first to shoot down a poll as biased if their guy is not on top.

Nothing new here. The election will be close, without a major game-changer before November. Of these 3 swing states, Ohio will likely be Obama's strongest showing, followed by Virginia and Florida. If Obama keeps all states that are currently in hand, then adds Ohio and Virgina, or even just Ohio and some of the smaller western states (Colorado, New Mexico, Nevad, plus New Hampshire) game over, even if Mitt wins Florida, Virgina and North Carolina. And if Romney can't win Florida early in the night, the race will be over before polls in Utah even close.

We already knew that. These polls will swing back and forth for months. McCain was holding leads on Obama in 2008, Obama pulled away late.

Beware seniors. A Republican sweep will mean slashing your social security and denying you health care - it's just that simple.

RE: marxist

You know that is not true.

Who's is peddling and spreading fear and hate, the extreme left.

@the truth

How else can Mitt pay for the wars he plans to start as well as the defense contractors he needs to pay for supplying the Republican War machine?

Cut Social Security and Medicare.

Senator Hatch, a Romney surrogate, reports daily, on his campaign adds, that we can no longer afford entitlements.

SS and Medicare together comprise 40+% of the budget.

The elderly will continue to vote Republican, no matter what the Republicans do to them.

Mitt has said he like to fire people.

Mitt has said he does not care about the poor.

Hate and fear?

Connect the dots...looks like the perfect Republican final solution.

John McCain's problem was John McCain, not Sarah Palin. He had lackluster support from the Republican base because of his wishy washy, cross the aisle, RINO character. It was only when he chose Sarah Palin that the Republican base was fired up. Had he chosen another RINO, his loss would have been compounded. You're being duped by the media to see her for something she's not.

I know this is an election year but....

I just came out of a meeting at work.

Projected budget cuts by both parties are going to require HUGE lay-offs at HAFB this coming fall.

Contracts set to expire in Oct, will mostly likely not be extended.

All new contracts and proposals are being put on hold until after the election.

You asked for it, you got it.

Okay. You're right. Sarah Palin was the brains of that campaign.

@What Now - as proven in your comments, the Democrats are not only about fear and hate, but flat out dishonesty as well.

I'd like to hear the quote when Romney said he "likes to fire people." You can't produce it, because he didn't say that. But people like you continue to dishonestly foist it upon the American public until it's pretty much now accepted as unchallenged truth.

The simple fact is that Romney said "I like being able to fire people who provide service to me." I like that too. It's called FREEDOM. Are you telling me that if someone provides poor service to you, you wouldn't like to have the ABILITY to fire them? You and Obama believe we should be locked into the poor service, with no recourse? No thanks!

But, you and Obama and Biden and the Democratic machine just keep pushing the lies. Your misrepresentation of his comments about "not caring about the poor" is also highly dishonest when used out of context, as your side always does. Such distortions of truth are very reflective of highly dishonorable character, and very unbecoming of a President.

@Let'sDebate

Thank you, for taking the time, to respond to my comment.

I do enjoy your...thoughtful...comments.

You wrote something about...

"...distortions of truth...reflective of highly dishonorable character...".

While Democrats and Independents do dabble in the art, Republicans/Conservatives clearly hold the patent.

Enjoy

That's a good one!

Republicans are waging war on women, gays, Hispanics, and blacks, want dirty air and water, want to take Social Security and Medicare away from seniors, are against science, want the auto industry to "go under," don't care about children's education, only care about the rich, blah, blah, blah.

I don't know if any amount of truth is even allowed in the Democrats' playbook.
