More polls: Romney now
within three points in
Michigan, two in Pennsylvania

In case there was any lingering shred of doubt that Romney helped himself considerably last week, this ought to finish it off. Michigan: Obama’s 10 percentage point lead (47%-37%) in a poll conducted last month by EPIC-MRA of Lansing dropped to 3 points (48% to 45%), according to the poll of 600 likely voters conducted by EPIC-MRA of Lansing. The gap between Romney and Obama was within the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points… “Romney has come back like gangbusters,” said EPIC-MRA President Bernie Porn.

Obama has run into the juggernaut of normal people who he even denied existed except for a few rednecks who shoot themselves out of homemade cannons.Obama had little or no exposure to real Americans because all the circles he traveled in were grievance laden activists.He decided a long time ago he could win with the welfare majority.What he really did was wake up a sleeping giant.

If Romney is this close without taking the milions of tea party voters into consideration,he's dead meat.

Pundits are looking at the 2008 voting model instead of the 2010 voting model which was the first evaluation of Obama's performance

I'm in Michigan and I think Romney has a chance here. He should put some ads on during the college football games and the pros too. I had to order my Romney sign (in mid-Sept) and they just notified me yesterday that it's coming. I wish they would fight here. I don't see many Obama signs or bumper stickers at all in any place but Ann Arbor and even there they're way down from 2008. I finally got a sign from our victory center and got it up. Had to go there twice to get it.

Here in Michigan I know 8 people, adults with families, who have never voted in their life, who have registered specifically so they can vote against Obama. Granted 8 people won't swing the State for Romney but there are a lot more where they came from. Around the office you can't find anyone who will admit they voted for him the first time. Very very different than 2008. Just saying.

FTA: ''Plus, 76% of voters said they watched the first televised debate, with a net 2% saying they switched their vote from Obama to Romney based on what they saw.''

Could it be that they saw the real Romney, as opposed to the eeevil gaffe-prone, rich elitest that the useless media has been selling for the last 7 or 8 months?

It be nice to see the Romney campaign show up somewhere besides Livonia, here in Michigan.
I know Macomb and Oakland counties are easy to find, but the foot soldiers are in Kent county.
I know, the Reagan democrats are in Macomb. Those are the union auto workers who cross over and vote against the UAW. They'd like affordable gasoline for their sparkly bass boats and pickup trucks.

I have faith in my fellow Americans and my only worry is the Chicago corruption when the vote is counted. As one of the home repairers for the elderly told me, he knows of people called by pollsters and they lied to them. Said they were still undecided and do not want to admit they will vote for the Governor this time for fear of being hounded even though the poll is supposedly confidential. They don't believe the pollsters and my bet is the percentage shift is far greater.

Was called yesterday by Rasmussen. Very extensive poll.. lots of questions, even on Geitner and Holder. Im not exactly in a swing state, so dont know how they chose me, but they know now if they had a choice of "broken glass" to rate my likeliness to vote, I would have chosen it. They said results of the poll would be released in couple days.

I live in Jackson, MI and because of Obama's policies, am currently unemployed. So I have been helping at the Romney Victory Center, here in town. I have two signs up in my yard, there are NO Obama signs anywhere in my neighborhood. I watched the first debate at the Romney Center and will watch the rest of the debates there as well. I also plan to be at the center popping champaign corks on Nov. 6th. If you have any spare time, find the Romney site near you and spend just an hour on the phones. Every bit helps and the results will be so much sweeter!

It is strangely silent here in San Diego, nary an Obama sign in sight. Of course I haven't driven through the Gay areas or other strongholds of the Democrat Party. I wonder how the Hispanic vote will pan out this time. I'm getting the feeling that Obama isn't exactly too popular with the Mexican population.The Military here will go for Romney of course.

Romney is doing well. Looks positive and presidential. Glad to hear all the positives in Michigan.

He needs to link the Obama agenda(don't use policies it's an agenda), and the high gasoline prices.

High gasoline prices means people have less to spend, and we're 70% a consumption economy.

Obama agenda, using the EPA, will stop fracking, will stop future oil production, and reduce taxable revenues to cities, counties and states who are enjoying those new added revenue streams.

Not just MI and PA. Watch IL. I know I am getting boring banging the drum on this, but here goes:

There is only one significant political office contested in Illinois in this election: President of the United States. Neither US Senate seat, nor the mayor of Chicago, nor the governorship is up for election this year. Obama is out there all by himself. No one of any import depends on him or his turnout in this election. So, with no big guys with anything riding on this, why would anyone voluntarily lash himself to the mast of the sinking Obama ship and ride it to the bottom? To answer that, first ask: who has Obama done anything for to merit such loyalty? Answer: nobody.

Chicago is a Notre Dame town. Catholic. At one time there were more Poles in Chicago than in Warsaw. Maybe still. Does anyone seriously expect the first Jewish mayor of Chicago to put it all on the line to try to rally the Irish, Italian, Polish, and Hispanic Catholics to vote against their interests and come out for a president who is in the middle of a war on the Catholic Church? Really? Smarter to just sit this one out and let that Hyde Park Obama/Jarrett crowd sink. And if Chicago sits it out, suburbs and downstate deliver Illinois to Romney.

This ain't rocket science to figure THIS out. Illinois is going to be in play for Romney.

If 0bama sucks in the next debate the vote for him will become so depressed that even the pollsters won't be able to cover for him anymore. Though many if not most of them want 0bama to win being wrong by over 10 points is too much for them to sacrifice for 0bama.

To respond to the question by poster above about my Rasmussen poll, the number showed up in caller ID.. was not a 800# but it was a phone number from out of state. Im like most.. I dont answer any calls that says private caller or "unkonwn". I thought it was a family member. They immediately identified themselves (all on tape, obviously). But, once I heard Rasmussen, I knew it was a national poll. I havent been polled in a very long time, for national polls anyway.

I live in PA.
I have 2 co-workers--college educated professionals, with lots of smarts and would fall into the >$250K/yr income bracket.
Both numbskulls voted fro Obama because they alwaqys vote Dem, As late as Labor Day, they were strong supporters of Choom Boy (can't admit their error in voting for him in 2008, doncha know)
Today, both libtards told me they are "undecided, leaning Romney"--meaning they will vote for Romney for sure. Both cited the poor debate by Obama and the alibis afterward.

DO YOU GET IT? There are many thousands of people who voted for Obama in 2008 for whatever reason--party loyalty, white guilt, liberalism.
They now regret their vote and are looking for an excuse to switch.
The debate (with Obama looking like a fool) and the aftermath (with Obama calling Romney a liar) now give these people AN EXCUSE to switch their votes over to Romney, without ever having to admit they were hoodwinked in 2008.
Romney's debate success gave 2008 Obama voters the excuse they needed to drop Obama in 2012.

Texans like to talk all the time about how big Texas is, and how if you´re driving from the bottom of Texas to Canada, then you´re spending half of your time just getting through the state itself. So is that true? It´s pretty close. Texas really is gigantic. Redditor Armeleon put together a map that gives you a good idea of the massive size of Texas. Texas spans about 800 miles from north to south. Everything seen in red on the map is closer than 791 miles to Texas (the longest straight-line distance in Texas from north to south is

Speaking at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network conference on Wednesday, Eric Holder took exception to criticism of his tenure as attorney general. He even hinted that the “unprecedented, unwarranted ugly and divisive adversity” was motivated by racism. “It had nothing to do with me, forget about that,”? Holder said. “What attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What president has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?” Holder’s notion that past attorneys general have escaped widespread criticism, or that criticism directed toward him is solely race-based, overlooks incidents of those before him, including

Not that you’d know it from the rhetoric President Obama and fellow Democrat are happily flinging at Republicans who dare to oppose the measure. “I don’t know why you would resist the idea that women should be paid the same as men and then deny that that’s not always happening out there,” Obama said Tuesday. “If Republicans in Congress… want to show that they do care about women being paid the same as men, then show

Obamacare´s Medicaid Trap

The technology behind a huge part of Obamacare´s efforts to expand insurance coverage—the part aimed at low-income Americans—remains far from fixed, and the glitches are keeping some of the nation´s most vulnerable patients from getting insured. The administration launched a "tech surge" to improve the HealthCare.gov experience for those shopping for private insurance, but the website´s process for enrolling in Medicaid remained mired in glitches. And for President Obama´s efforts to expand health coverage that´s a major problem. To reach would-be Medicaid recipients, the Affordable Care Act relies on potential enrollees being able to effectively navigate the law´s website to enroll. And

John Kerry, our secretary of state, is very angry with Israel. “Poof,” he said on Tuesday — describing how Israel destroyed his “peace process” the other week. Just like that. The first thing to say is that if a peace process can go “poof,” it can’t have been much of a peace process. Any serious discussion in which two parties are motivated to reach a negotiated arrangement wouldn’t be susceptible to going up in smoke all at once. That would indicate it never had any form or substance to begin with. And how on earth was it Israel who made

The award is the “Jefferson Muzzle,” which the administration won for spying on the news media and limiting journalists’ access to Obama.

Congress´s investigation into IRS political targeting accelerated Wednesday, with a referral for the criminal prosecution of a former Treasury official and new evidence to back it up. In a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp recommends the Justice Department proceed on three probable criminal actions taken by former director of Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner. The letter, which was endorsed in a party-line Ways and Means vote Wednesday morning, discloses new evidence suggesting that Ms. Lerner used her position to single out conservative groups for scrutiny not applied to left-leaning groups.

Some people can’t take “no” for an answer. Often that’s an admirable quality. But when you are a witness at the center of a congressional investigation, and the “no” reflects the House Oversight Committee’s decision not to accept your refusal to testify, then it’s not quite so simple. And that is where Lois Lerner, the former Internal Revenue Service official at the center of the IRS scandal, now finds herself. Lerner’s case is by now well known. From 2006 to 2013, she was the IRS’s Director of Exempt Organizations, vested with power to decide which nonprofit organizations receive tax-exempt status, which

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell. “Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not
