It's looking like a Romney-Ryan win. Perhaps by a landslide. But what about CA voters? While the rest of the country supports change will CA voters stick by Obama? Seems like we have more at stake than most states considering the dismal state of affairs in CA. Any chance Romney-Ryan even come close to winning CA?

The "rest of the country" will not be supporting Romney. The way things are shaking out, a very thin majority of voters will be supporting Romney. So it's not like California will be some kind of eyebrow-raising outlier if Obama carries the state.

No way will Romney win California, he won't even win his home state of Massachusetts. Even if Romney sweeps Florida, Colorado, Virginia and New Hampshire (latest polls are showing these states virtually tied so a sweep in unlikely) Obama is still ahead in the electoral college by eight points, based on the latest polling.

Have to disagree. I see a complete lack of enthusiasm for Obama compared to '08. The undecideds will go 60%+ for Romney. Looks to me like Romney takes 30 states and wins the electoral college by around 100 votes.

We'll see - only 15 days left for Obama to save this. It will take some doing considering Obama is on the defense for the embassy fiasco. But some trickery wouldn't surprise - Wag The Dog?

Default Will CA Voters Be The Oddballs?

And that will be different how?

Think of the US as the European Union. Think of California as Spain or Greece. Same climates as well!

He means it's starting to look like Romney will win in an electoral landslide and he's correct. Romney has done something in national polls that Obama has yet to do, poll at 50% or higher and this comes after Obama's alleged debate "victory." Currently 52-45 (Gallup)

Being up by 7% nationally doesn't occur without a surge in battleground states. All the key states that Obama carried in 2008 are going for Romney (IA, NH, VA, NC, FL, CO, IN) while forcing PA, WI, and MI into toss-ups which spells doom for any Democrat this late in the election. If Romney winds up winning PA, OH barely matters and Obama may as well concede the election before the polls close on the west coast.

As usual the Great Blue Firewall of the left coast doesn't look like it's going to change its ways in this election, though Oregon is showing signs of letting up. Californians have shown time and time again that they're willing to reward failures by voting for the same people in different offices again and again. For crying out loud, just look at our governor.

as a US Veteran, the most important qualification i consider when voting for POTUS is his capability to act as Commander and Chief of the United States.

to me Obama is head and shoulders above what his competitor could ever hope to be.
