    It looks like the Kochs and Rove's campaign money is showing big dividends for Mittens.

    As I’ve always stated. I do not believe in polls whether they support or not support my views. This is the one of the least viable field of candidates I have seen. They are to extreme they only seem to represent a small extreme faction of America not the majority of us. It will not help their candidate in the general election that Congress under the GOP leadership in the House and Sen. McConnell has achieved near to nothing and is considered one of the worst Congress.

    We are not going to listen to Mr. Big Head (Karl Rove). He has no right to choose for us what candidate suits us. We are going to do it on our own basing on who stands for our values, who believes what we believe and who make us comfortable and happy to vote for. This is all about own choice and own decision and NOT Karl Rove's.

    One sure thing is that all of the Republican candidates all repeat the same phrase, "job creators", and never use the term "middle class." When you listen to all of their economic plans, the focus and direction is always for the "job creators", never for the "middle class", "the poor", or "working families".

    We have endured over three decades of a well disguised war on the midde class families with a union wage earner, a wat which is just now bearing fruit for the job creators. The best news is that the job creators do not need to create jobs anymore to grow their wealth. They can simply sell capital to other people and collect a return on their investment, or write off a loss as negative income, which reduces their overall tax burden.

    Polls – Schmolls – is there a poll out there on how irrelevant polls are?

    The downfall of the Republicans is the fact that they started campaigning too early. The day after President Obama was sworn in, they began the notion of making him a "one-term President" and now the American people are TIRED of all of the rhetoric!! All during the nomination process next year, the media will continue to saturate us with every bit of ignorance and battling that takes place on the RIGHT.

    In reality, we need an alien ship to land in the middle of Washington DC and just sit there – no one can penetrate it – no one will exit from it – the entire world will be in a mode of curiosity and solemn enough to pray to God to help us. The pundits will "break their backs" trying to figure out where they are from – the Republicans will BLAME the Democrats and President Obama for staging it – The carcases and nomination voting process will be in the background and NO ONE will care if MITTens is beating ginGRINCH – Bachmann is slaughtering Paul – or Santorum is "jacking up" Huntsman, etc., and we will be RID of all of these rotating 15-minutes of fame that means NOTHING!!!

    At 12:00 AM on Tuesday, November 6, 2012 – the spacecraft will take off in the same matter in which it landed and leave... no explanation, no reason why they are leaving... The ONLY thing that will be visible in stream of dust they leave behind is ...........................

  9. Republican who supports President Obama

    Not a single one would ever get my vote. I found it interesting that a large percentage actually thing Bachman is truthful – geez what coolaid have they been drinking?

    They should add these questions to the next poll:
    1) Do you believe the GOP in office are following an obstructionist agenda or are they following the agenda you expected when you voted for them?
    2) Do you think there would be more progress from the Senate and Congress if they put aside partisanship and negotiate in good faith for the american citizens?
    3) Considering where we are would you re-elect your local Republican representative (Congress or Senate).
    4) Would you abolish the filibuster and stalling tactics used by the minority party (regardless of party) and simply go with majority votes going forward?

    I would love to see the results.

    In this poll, no repulicans under 50 years of the age were in the sample. Good even representation pollsters.

    Why is this only for Americans over the age of 50? That doesn't seem like a justifiable demographic to take a national polling poll. Maybe to make the article more clear, this should be mentioned. I though this was for all voting Americans.

    You can check out another surprising poll just in, in famous paper in NYC -(NYT) can't name it here, CNN doesn't like that – moderated my comment with a link, and took it off –
    Just check out Politics and the results of their Iowa poll are astounding, Ron Paul in No. 1 spot.
