Gallup poll: Romney, Obama statistically tied in 2012 matchup | The Ticket - Yahoo! News

Quote:
A new Gallup poll finds Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama statistically tied among registered voters heading into November's general election.

According to Gallup, 47 percent of voters polled are backing Romney, compared to 45 percent who prefer Obama. That's well within the poll's margin of error, which is plus or minus 3 percent.

While both men are doing well within their respective parties, the most notable finding came among self-described independents, a swing voting bloc that could very well determine the outcome of this fall's election. According to Gallup, Romney leads Obama among indie voters by 6 points, 45 percent to 39 percent.

The survey is Gallup's first daily tracking poll of the general election.
Uh-oh, better hope there's another financial crisis on the hor i zon or Barry could be in trouble.

polls will start to matter after the Olympics. i think everyone thinks this will be closer than 2008 where Obama ran a near-flawless campaign for the ages and metaphorically freed us all from the hideousness of the Bush years.

this one is going to be far more depressing, and far more tethered to reality.

i'd expect a Romney bump because he just "won" the GOP primary. the election will be about a choice between the two, and the comparison shopping begins right about now.

Quote:
The right to bear arms comes from our creator, not our government,” Gingrich said. The NRA “has been too timid” in promoting its agenda beyond American borders. The Bill of Rights was not written only for Americans, he said. “It is a universal document.”

“A Gingrich presidency will submit to the UN a treaty that extends the right to bear arms as a human right to every person on the planet.” Every world citizen, he said, “deserves the right to defend themselves from those who exploit, imprison, or kill them.” For his latest big idea, Gingrich earned a standing ovation from the crowd of roughly 5,000.
Jesus wants us all to have an AK-47. Giddy up!!

Sounds awfully Libertarian of Newt.

That is of course, unless he's serious about god giving his children guns.

My original post was something along those lines, but I couldn't word it well enough. Didn't want to sound like I thought Newt was speaking well.

So when does the day come when we hear Newt drops out of the race? I want to know so I can be sure to throw a party that day.

Fucking idiot.

Who cares at this point? I enjoy a good fight. I hope he stays in it until the end. Don't give Mutt a complete backing from his party. Make him look weak.

From your opinion, who helps Romney the most in winning the election?

on that list, Ohio Senator Rob Portman is the best pick.

Someone from the RNC should tell Eric Cantor to shut the fuck up during an election year.

makes perfect sense, if people don't want to pay high taxes they should work hard get their income up to where they pay no more than 15%

why make it easy to be poor and unproductive, if you want to pay less taxes work harder!

The first step that you have to do if you want to pay less taxes is to move out of the United States.

after the primaries tomorrow, the GOP nomination will be down to one candidate.

Newt will selflessly bow out, for the good of the country.



Will Ron Paul supporters concede, or soldier on?

Newt is a true, historical, patriot, much like some of the founding fathers.

I get it.

But... the only thing that is for the good of the country is not letting the game win.

Romney has been getting a little bounce, the last couple of weeks,
after tonight and this speech (below)

he will get a better one, the other side we start to worry (in public) a bit.

A better America begins tonight.

Quote:
For every single mom who feels heartbroken when she has to explain to her kids that she needs to take a second job … for every grandparent who can’t afford the gas to visit his or her grandchildren … for the mom and dad who never thought they’d be on food stamps … for the small business owner desperately cutting back just to keep the doors open one more month – to all of the thousands of good and decent Americans I’ve met who want nothing more than a better chance, a fighting chance, to all of you, I have a simple message: Hold on a little longer. A better America begins tonight.



Four years ago Barack Obama dazzled us in front of Greek columns with sweeping promises of hope and change. But after we came down to earth, after the celebration and parades, what do we have to show for three and a half years of President Obama?

Is it easier to make ends meet? Is it easier to sell your home or buy a new one? Have you saved what you needed for retirement? Are you making more in your job? Do you have a better chance to get a better job? Do you pay less at the pump?

If the answer were “yes” to those questions, then President Obama would be running for re-election based on his achievements…and rightly so. But because he has failed, he will run a campaign of diversions, distractions, and distortions. That kind of campaign may have worked at another place and in a different time. But not here and not now. It’s still about the economy …and we’re not stupid.



I see an America with a growing middle class, with rising standards of living. I see children even more successful than their parents - some successful even beyond their wildest dreams – and others congratulating them for their achievement, not attacking them for it.

This America is fundamentally fair. We will stop the unfairness of urban children being denied access to the good schools of their choice; the unfairness of politicians giving taxpayer money to their friends’ businesses; the unfairness of requiring union workers to contribute to politicians not of their choosing; the unfairness of government workers getting better pay and benefits than the taxpayers they serve; and we will stop the unfairness of one generation passing larger and larger debts on to the next.

In the America I see, character and choices matter. And education, hard work, and living within our means are valued and rewarded. And poverty will be defeated, not with a government check, but with respect and achievement that is taught by parents, learned in school, and practiced in the workplace.

This is the America that was won for us by the nation’s Founders, and earned for us by the Greatest Generation. It is the America that has produced the most innovative, most productive, and most powerful economy in the world, with one of the highest standards of living of any major nation. …
