    ...although some in the community do have a tendency to trivialize or discount negative info.

    Thanks for your coverage of this!

      it is contrary to the CNN poll. Also, its all about the electoral college. I've read from multiple pollsters that romney will have to win Ohio, Florida, nc, Virginia and Nevada to win. I really don't see Obama losing all 5 at all. I honestly think he will win all 5. Romney definitely has a steep uphill climb.

        ...twisted Republican propaganda between now and Election Day.

        IMHO, polls--although some in this community will disagree with me--don't mean so much until the Summer. And, in a close race, things really don't take shape--if ever--until the Fall.

          I agree with you to an extent on the polls but do yiu really see Obama losing all 5 of those states? Put it this way, I think Obama has a way better shot of winning all 5 than romney. And good thing about it is, he doesn't. He only needs to win ONE. I personally think he will win at least 3. I still think it will be a close race but its all about the swing states.

            ...the Elections of 2000 and 2004, along with the Swiftboating of our candidate, also in 2004, and the subsequent (and previous) voting fraud that was perpetrated by the status quo, I would strongly advise all intelligent supporters (wherein that qualification eliminates a vast majority of our society) of a real two-party system to be extremely cautious about counting ANY proverbial chickens, at all.

            This baby's just getting started. And, it's going to be very, very, very ugly.
