    Just as Sarah Palin was the most talked about candidate in the last presidential election. That is not always a good thing.

    I know the hole nation will vote for Mitt/Ryan.Barack Obama is the Amateur president. If he wins he will be in January knocking on your door, asking for your healf care, if you don't have one you got to paid a fine or you can ease end in jail! Lots of new regulations, communist ideas. Obamacre the new piggy bank for Obama will collect 700 billions in fines.also share your properties, houses, farms, cars, land will be confiscate to give to people that don't work for what you sue, your entire life.we are not in Africa Barack this is America. Thanks

    On Facebook, Mitt Romney is the most talked about candidate in the U.S. except in swing states. That's because folks neither like him or trust him!

    People in the swing states have known enough of him and decided he's no good,as shown by the polls,it's those other people who are currious that keep discussing him.I guess they are trying to catch up on his flip-flops,or maybe,they just keep close tabs,to know if he's released his detailed tax returns.

    Raw data is very hard to decipher .

    One ting it shows is less young people are going to vote, thats better for Romney.

    I am deeply concerned about dirty tricks. The voter suppression going on is extremely distressing. It is no accident that the picture ID ploy was implemented when there is no time for the state governments to process all of the people who need those government issued IDs before the election. I am concerned now, that should Romney become president he would have access to the "nuclear football".

    I feel like the people I know who support Romney like to show it. Whereas I don't think I've posted once about Obama since the election. Doesn't mean I don't support him, just that I'd like to keep from putting EVERYTHING on the internet.

    This is not surprising at all. Obama has far less gaffes, so Romney is getting more press, and more discussion.
