Romney in 2012!! Finally we'll have some hope and get some change.

The best the current administration can do is a guy who forgot to pay $40K in taxes to take care of money issues - no wonder our economic malaise continues.

Romney is having a good week. Unfortunately, Romney has made too many mistakes to be assured of lock in (had he picked Rubio, this thing would be over by now).

This will be extremely close, and it shouldn't be. Given the performance and the the Democrats telling the great middle that they could care less about them, this should be a 56-43-1 election in popular vote and something just short of a landslide in the EC for the Republicans.

Obama's guys will be ready for the next debate. It is critical that team Romney generate false tells in the debate prep. by leaking false talking points to a wider internal audience and keeping the actual debate prep to no more than 4 or 5 people, max. The "you're no Jack Kennedy" quip years ago occurred because the Democrats apparently had a plant that knew Quayle would use this analogy.

Very, very close. Florida will be key. GOP takes Senate, GOP extends or holds fast in House, GOP extends in State Houses and Governorships as well.

As I have told you people, this is (and has been) Romney's to lose. He cannot make any more mistakes, particularly on security and message discipline. One more like the 47% screw up and this one is lost.

Knocking an incumbent out is hard. Knocking an incumbent out who was voted in so passionately four years ago seems harder.

But it is the economy.

This race isn't and hasn't been either of the candidates.

I think Romney will win, and I think that it is the better option now.

eatenbybears,

Ok, you think the polls show Romney will win the election.

I think the polls show Obama will win the election.

How about a friendly wager?

No, no, no ...... not $10,000.

How about whoever loses gives their word not to post on the MF boards, starting the day after the election, for 30 consecutive days?

What do you think?

Ugh, I keep forgetting who I am dealing with. Forget it, you are freaking hopeless. You will tell yourself what you want to hear until the baseball bat of reality hits you in the face, then you will deny that you just got hit in the face. It is amazing.

Didn't the 2010 thing teach you anything??

You are a throwback to a different time. The enlightenment rejected certainty as the way to truth for fallibility. You need to advance your thinking...

Rasmussen only polls people with hardline phones into their homes.

How many young people have never had a hardwire phone in their lives?

Knowing this, how likely is a Rasmussen poll worth any more than a coin flip?

One debate and all the poll numbers flip? Romney takes the lead in 11 swing states? Romney moves ahead in the electoral vote?

That debate was the one I expected Obama would do well in ... all stuff he supposedly knows

What happens on Foreign Policy? Obama has none and has never seemed to care ... just easier to let Hillary hang on a string somewhere in Asia or the Middle East.

Obama cant debate ..... showed it well .... all down hill from here.

Romney, since the debate, is actually seen as "likable"

While we do not currently call cell phones directly when conducting our surveys, to reach those who have abandoned traditional landline telephones, Rasmussen Reports uses an online survey tool to interview a demographically diverse panel. Just like our telephone surveys, respondents for this approach are selected on a random basis to insure the reliability of the sample.

_____________________

Anything about the Obama Presidency without accepting the strawman arguments we see him constantly does not play well for Obama.

Obama can be a great debater, but against an informed opponent, it is just not a situation where he can win.

Obama has to turn the debate away from the last 4 years. Which is essentially impossible because his argument is that we have to continue what we have been doing because it is working, just a little slowly.

Obama's only real chance in the next debate, is the moderator making it impossible for Romney to confront Obama's facts, and to keep Romney within some prescribed timeframe on each question. I expect the moderator to really go for tight control in an attempt to make this appear a fight between the moderator and ROmney, with a patient Obama answering strawmen, errggghhh I mean questions patiently and with a smile.


Well, that is what I expect to see attempted, the Romney camp will IMO see this possibility also so can they dismantle it? We will see.
