Do you really think the far left has taken over the Democratic Party?

Yeah, if the far left has taken over, they've done a pretty lame job of enacting their far left "agenda" so far.

Same here. I was really excited to get one of those registration slips in high school.

The Democratic Party in the United States is center-right.

given the rather right leaning party in power in new zealand is working on free contraception for unemployed women (a start, at least), you'd be nuts to suggest the democrats are far left.

not really a comparison, just saying.

I think the country's nasty earthquakes are about the only thing I DON'T find attractive about New Zealand so far .

Yep, they are.
It's one of the reasons why I always find it ridiculous when someone is accusing them of being (far) lefties.

Yes, the fact that Kucinich got bounced in the primary is excellent proof of the far left taking over.

I wish certain posters were made to back up their statements, because I find such observations to be so out of tune...

I could have put this in any of 3 threads,

I put it here because I believe it pertains to Romney's much improved chances for election in November.

Quote:
Overall, 51% approve of Obama's new position on same-sex marriage, compared with 45% who disapprove. Nearly 13% say his shift in position will make them more likely to vote for him, while 26% say it will make them less likely, suggesting that more supporters of likely GOP nominee Mitt Romney feel more strongly about this issue than do base supporters of Obama.

Since Obama announced on Wednesday his shift on the issue in an interview with ABC News' Robin Roberts, his campaign has highlighted his position on gay rights while charging that Romney would further restrict rights for same-sex couples. Though Obama endorsed gay marriage, he told Roberts that the issue should be a matter for each state to decide on individually.
the 51% approval sounds good, but it is very misleading

polls in NC showed a majority was not in favor of outlawing all gay relationships, so what happened?

about 30% showed up to vote, it passed by 22% - 61 for 39 against

ask someone, how do you feel about gays marrying?

"I don't care" are you likely to vote, "Nah, who cares".


also quite a bit of support is in larger states, that push the number up.

I'd like to see a poll in the 'undecided states'. I don't believe the numbers would be as good.

regardless, at this point, I am still inclined to vote for Obama, my vote does and does not matter. It won't change the outcome. CA will go for Obama by a wide margin. But it will be added to the national total, like the one that said the American people spoke in 2000 and the majority of them chose Al Gore to be the President. That is one reason I feel strongly about voting, I want there to be a record for all to see what really is the desire of the American people that took the time to vote. Not some asshat unAmerican vote system, where one person's vote can have 8? times the weight of another person vote.

Mitt passes the test, and picks up the mantle.

It looks like he didn't get the memo.

does Mitt know most of those non-interracial coupling students without countercultural hairstyles (it's in their rulebook) think he's a cultist?
