Plus, most people aren't home during the day when these calls are made, so the sample is of those who are living off the dole anyway.
Oh I am sure the pollsters spend hundreds of millions on all their polls and yet they never thought of this.

Relatively few people in the rest of the world get to enjoy that privilege--even once in their lives, much less every couple of years.

I agree -- I never miss the opportunity to vote. I've voted in every election since I turned 18. I especially like living in Colorado and having the opportunity to vote by mail -- I tend to fill out my ballot over a period of a few days, especially in cases like this year, where there were so many other races and initiatives on the ballot besides the Presidential race.
Same here. I first voted for pres. in 1972-George McGovern.

It wil be interesting to see how the whole marijuana thing is implemented. Overall -- I feel like Colorado is on its way to becoming California. At least for me, here in Denver, I'll be paying higher property taxes because of Denver Public Schools. I doubt the quality of education provided by DPS will improve, even with extra revenue from Amendment 64 and the 3A and 3B initiatives. Not trying to be sour grapes about this, since I know a lot of people are happy, but it's kind of my general feeling right now.

Default Are you kidding me!!!

"Of course the rest of the world wants Obama. He is a Neville Chamberlain kind of President, easily fleeced and pushed around in foreign affairs. "

Geez, talk about inability to analyze foreign affairs!!!!!---Obama went after the Al Quaeda and did everything Bush promised HIS administration would do--and didn't. A foreign policy that dictates to the rest of the world is not foreign policy---it is dictatorship. It always amazes me that many people who tout their own ability to do what they want, still want to dictate to other countries how they should feel, think, act, and cow-tow to the U.S.

I've lived six years in three other countries and one protectorate. Those people have their own ideas and resent that Americans try to tell them what opinions they should hold. Many times Americans living or stationed in foreign countries treat the natives of that country as stupid or less capable than we great Americans.

Here is a President who will LISTEN on the international scene for a change, and the opinionated extremists in this country criticize him for that. He has been a better foreign policy president than anyone we've had since Nixon. And for all the faults Nixon had, he was a heck of a good foreign policy leader.

Go figure!

Romney has a new Red Rocks video out:


Red Rocks - YouTube

You look at the enthusiasm there and tell me people are not ready to go.

I think what will finish obama off is his revenge comments:

New Romney ad hammers Obama over telling his supports that “voting is the best revenge” » The Right Scoop -

Revenge for what?

It just goes to show what a small minded weasel he is and certainly isn't presidential.

Who knows what will happen on tuesday, but if Americans do want obama and 20 Trillion in debt, well I already have my escape plan. I say if that happens people get what they deserve. I will not be hanging around for more obamacare taxes, higher taxes starting Jan 2013, 20+ Trillion in debt, abandoning Americans to al qaeda, the US dollar tanking, more constitutional abuses, tens of millions more on welfare, a stagnant economy, high energy prices, etc. If that is what Americans want they can have it, but count me out.

If Romney wins, I will celebrate for a week, but the work is just starting. There are still 2 months of obama and God only knows all he will be up to. Then we've still got evil, twisted individuals like harry reid around and some hot tub republicans who like being in Washington but not doing anything. We've got a lot to do and it is going to have to be real change from day 1.
So have you packed your bags yet?

At least we'll be able to get legally stoned and numb ourselves for the next 4 years

$2 Billion later, it's basically about the same. Gridlock. I hope the Dems and Reps can sit at the table and work stuff out for our country. Obama has a legacy to protect, so I think he might be willing to compromise.

This, I think, has been the major failing of US foreign policy for quite some time. It certainly didn't start with the end of the cold war, but I believe that as the last "super power" we, as a country, have let some things go to our head over the last 25+ years.

Middle-East policy is perhaps the easiest one to point out, but even among the average citizens of a lot of our close allies there is a feeling that if the US would stop poking its nose into places it doesn't belong and trying to demand that soverign nations follow our lead things would be a lot calmer.

I don't think he will. He's a left wing radical who wants more government control over our lives. He might pay some lip service to it and throw a few bones out there, but he isn't going to change.

Essentially you have 25% of the country that wants free stuff and the 25% that wants government to stop picking our pocket and treating us as lab rats for their kooky schemes. And then you have 50% of the people too damn lazy to get involved and vote.

There were failures on the part of the Romney campaign, but that's in the past and it's clear it's going to have to be my generation, the Reagan Generation, who are going to have to step up and take the lead as the baby boomer generation has proved to be a colossal failure running government, with $220,000 in federal debt on every child below 18. We've got serious problems and it's time to get these fossils out of there.

If these wingbats who won 60 million votes think they have a mandate over me and other Americans who respect liberty, they've got another thing coming. It's time to fight.

How do you deal with the fact that Democrats won the poll above ^?

Your family, your friends, your co-workers, and your idols/roll models/etc. voted for Obama and would do it again.

I see the problem as being this; truth is illusive and that works both ways. Let me explain; If the Republicans were everything that the Democrats campaign them as being, this world would just be doomed. If the Democrats were everything that the Republicans campaign them as being, this world would just be doomed. You know it and I know it.

Until everybody sees a movie/documentary called Inside Job and comments here about their thoughts on it, I cannot show you or convey to you my opinions on how this global economic mess is "both of their faults" and neither of them at the same time. Money has the illusion of power. It's in reality force being used in the wrong way and can be confused with power.

Once Presidents' stop aligning themselves with criminals from Wallstreet and once non-incumbents/challengers stop aligning themselves with ... just watch the movie.
