    Honestly, if Romney had ANY core values, he might be a decent candidate.
    But the fact that he's a chronic flip flopper on EVERY issue....from abortion to Romneycare to gun control, etc... tells me that he has no principles whatsoever...none....
    I expect more from a president.
    I didn't agree with anything that Ronald Reagan believed in. But at least Reagan had beliefs and principles and a vision for America.
    Romney, on the other hand, is a 2 bit, slimy used car salesman who will pander to any interest group and say anything to get elected.
    What a sad sad state the Republican party is in if this is the best they can offer.
    No Mr Romney...you will NOT be getting my vote.

    No offense but Romney camp is bsing big time. If he likes Obama winning then he must love the current EV map. Right now at minimum Obama looks to get 277 EVs election day with CO and NH leaning his way albeit by a HAIR. If the election were today Romney would lose if polls are accurate.

    President Obama deserves another 4years. He must win this election. We don't want those like Romney who change their ideas easily because they need our voice. President Obama is credible.

    It is funny, if you go to Fox news most of the polls show Romney winning, however if you come to CNN most of the polls show Obama winning. The only consistancy is that it is a close race. Fortunatly these polls dont mean anything. The only numbers that matter are the ones that come out on election day. One way or the other, I will be glad when this election is over because both of the candidates are giving half truths. 99.9% of people already know who they are going to vote for and at this point no one is going to change there mind. I guess in these "battle ground" states that .1% could potentially be the difference, but the rest of the country is set on there candidate. Although most of these polls are supposed to be accurate, that is not always the case. We will find out very soon though.

    I find that CNN'S averages are often very selective and do not compare with RCP which averages all major poll of polls.
    I hope CNN are not just averaging percentages if so they need a lesson in basic math.
    Personally I prefer to look at the individual polls and read thru carefully each one, then let my gut tell me who is winning a) with voters b) how that impacts the Electoral college result.
    CNN loves this period of the game because the polls get closer and closer to voter reality partly because of pre voting, partly because of the tendency of certain voters to leave it to the last minute, and how one can identify a swing voter or independent Defeats me ( unless privacy laws are totally screwed already) especially at this stage those who have not voted already.
    I have a problem with ou system of voting if any party or body, PAC can say accurately of those who have voted early How many were Democrat and how many Republican, means why are state election offices revealing how many pre vote papers were sent to registered Dems and Republicans . that is secret ballot information until votes are counted after the polls have closed in all nationwide locations, and or a definitive result announce in local time.
    Cnn please also look at the other part of this election i.e House and Senate.... currently everything I see says the Senate remains democratic. The house stats are confusing love to see an analysis of this.
