    No surprise here. Just like in 08 we have adoring media that covers up for Pres. Obama. Everty Reublican gaffes is proof of a candidate that is not ready for office. While our media covered up Pres.Obama's Polish Death Camp gaffe.

    How anyone could vote for Romney after his display of immature , unabashed disregard for decency is beyond comprehension .

    Yeah. Romney pretty well turned himself to toast on some levels with his ill-advised comments on the murder of our diplomats. He is apparently unclear on the concept of not criticizing the president in time of international crisis. He could of at least waited one lousy day. He might have saved himself embarrasment.

    He's losing because he can't run on lies alone. Well, lies and being incredibly inept and un-presidential.

    I really don't see how it can improve for Romney. I'm actually starting to feel sorry for him.

  10. Fact

    It's simple. People know that Obama cares. For example, saving the auto industry alone was huge. Stopping a potential second Great Depression from happening. Making sure that women get equal pay for equal work. The list goes on. Oh yes, not to mention ensuring people get better healthcare that is more affordable. And all the time incorporating good ideas from both parties to move the nation forward.

    These numbers now do not just represent Convention bounce in these "battleground states" which are clearly getting less and less.
    On balance I do not think the recent lLbya etc will affect voters who already believe Obama bas the better creds big time on foreign policy ( supported by HRC), but if there is a gain it will go Obama and democrats way.
    I believe that Republicans are paying the price for thier overall campain strategy of primarily:-
    1) Doing anything and everything to make OBAMA a one term president and people are fed of this concept as they do not see/agree that he is wrong all the time as Republicans constantly claim..
    2) the second issue is they have gone too far with Untruths, half truths and not enough fact and detail in policy answers on key issues including jobs and the economy. Yes the majority see Republicans as doing more on debt Ryan budget but its the wrong question and not how Americans would vote to get Debt down. we will not be driven off our message by independeny fact checkers , not a good policy.
    For that see the AC 360 5 key issues reports and conversations plus polls on health care etc etc.
    Regards,
    Hodgson.

    The republican scales are falling off some eyes,and they have started seeing clearly the mesh of lies.

    Surprising since Rasmussen has Romney ahead. Stop polling only one party CNN, and for the love god please stop being so biased.

    It's hard to believe he'd have ground to begin with. Must be that massive ego wrapped in a layer of manure that attracts so many flies.

    Polls can show losing ground all they want. The traitorous criminal GOP will lie cheat and steal their way into office.

    Mitt Rommey has all the neocon from Bush era as advisers...what do you expect America to be if he had to win the white House. They don't learn at all. They think to be arrogant and a bully is the right way for America.

    Romney called his friend BiBi to find out what he should say - just like he said he would in the primaries.

    Vote all republicans out. They want us at war in every country in the world.

    23 days to early voting in some states.

    Obama/Biden for a rational, sane hand at the wheel in these times of turmoil

    How on earth, did he and miss.ann think they could continue to lie, and"we" the AMERICAN people would not figure it out?

    Mitt Romeny's flawed argument that he is a successful business man and therefore he can be more effective as president than president Obama has not been bought by the voters who can judge things better. you can fool some people sometimes but you can't fool them all the time. So far he does not seem to have uttered a word of his economic policies that is better for the US economy.

    Alexithymic Mitt never had any SOLID ground to stand on, to begin with.

    In Eastern PA, parts of VA, and FL, some republican political groups are writing elderly people telling them to send their driver's licenses back to THEM because their doctors have determined them too old to drive.

    If you get one of those letters, IT IS A REPUBLICAN SCAM. Do NOT SEND YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE TO ANYONE. It is your ID to vote. Voter suppression is alive and, sadly, thriving. If you know an elderly person, warn them. They are vulnerable.
