People looking at the mentioned poll should keep one thing in mind: The Democrats are just now starting their campaign, up until now, they were
in fundraiser mode...so Romney wasn't really attacked all that much so far. Obama on the other hand has been hammered during the GOP primaries for
Even with the rough past 3-4 years, and even with Libya and Egypt and Syria and the threat of Iran. And even with NK firing off their rocket, and
Greece and Italy and France economies imploding. And even with Romney on every news channel every night, and a team of the best Republican candidates
debating during primetime 2 nights per week for months, and with all of this Obama is neck and neck with Romney!
As soon as Obama begins his campaign, and the closer to November we get, the better the unemployment numbers and stock market will look. And Obama
will have plenty of tricks to play and strings to pull, and by the time November 6 arrives, Obama will be a clear double-digit winner, and the
Republicans will be blaming Ron Paul or Gary Johnson instead of facing their own inadequacies.
Heh, your prediction matches mine exactly
Romney said too many crazy things during the primaries to "compete" with crazy people like Bachmann and "Santorum 2012, because f*** logic!". All that
stuff will bit him in the ass once Obama starts hammering him. Add to that that women and Latinos play a key role for this election, and you know why
the numbers just won't stack up for Romney. He can't get enough women votes because of the GOP's many anti-women rights legislation (anti-equal pay
for example!!), and it's pretty clear that the majority of Latinos will vote for Obama given what happened in Arizona.
Romney should have CRUSHED his GOP competitors because most of them are INSANE. I mean, have you seen any of Cain's latest adds? Or all the crap
Santorum spew around to appeal to a tiny fundamentalist minority that is no where near representative of the average American? Or
Bachmann...well...being Bachmann? Or "let's get me another wife" Newt?
He should have destroyed them, yet even against those clowns he had to fight and spend a sick amount of money compared to them. He outspent Santorum 7
to 1 and STILL lost a significant amount of delegates against him. And that's the guy people expect to stand a chance against Obama? Really?
Obama could even take it easy and just keep on blasting people with Romney's "corporations are people my friend" clip over and over again before
saying "ok guys, now vote". I think even doing just that would be enough as people are really turned off by corporations buying elections. People's
opinion about superpacs and other stuff corporations use to buy politicians are really unpopular, on BOTH sides of the aile. It's one of the few
things general voters actually agree on
