Incumbent Rule
This generally has NOT been the case in recent Presidential elections, see Clinton/Dole in 96 and Bush/Kerry in 2004.

'Soccer moms' and independents are going to decide this election, and they're not about to vote for the incumbent who continues his unabashed assault on them & their pocketbooks.

Sorry, but when Rush Limbaugh calls women sluts simply for wanting to have access to contraception as part of their medical insurance coverage and NO REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE REPUDIATES HIM. That sends a LOUD MESSAGE to women.

Kind of like how the GOP only has support as they get people attached on hate, ignorance, and apealing to the most uneducated and easily mislead among us? Yeeee ha billy bob!

I see a lot of sour grapes responses from conservatives on this thread.

Then again, if my party had insulted women and minorities the way the GOP has the last couple of years I suppose I'd be pretty sour grapes also.

Default Obama's lead in swing states and nationally continues to grow

As republicans begin to settle on Mitt Romney is their nominee, Obama's poll numbers continues to grow.

"Mr. Obama garnered 51 percent support, compared to 42 percent for Romney in the hypothetical match-up in battleground states."

Obama also leads among Independents. GOP...better luck in 2016...hehehe! OBAMA! OBAMA! OBAMA! YES WE CAN! SI SE PUEDE!

USA Today/Gallup poll shows Obama leading Romney in key swing states - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

Actually picking someone like Palin was an insult to women when you consider that there were much more qualified women out there than her.
The only reason why men supported her was because they considered her a milf.

The GOP severely underestimates the damage Palin did. A lot of conservative women sat out in 2008.

Oh, one little oddity that swings these supposed "swing" states to obama.

NM, MI and WI are not really swing states, are they?

Election 2012: New Mexico President - Rasmussen Reports™

Obama ahead by 18 points in NM is a "swing" state? He won it by 15 in 2008.

http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/p...ase_MI_215.pdf

A 16 point lead in MI for obama.

http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/p..._WI_030112.pdf

A 14 point lead in WI for obama.

Absolutely ridiculous to characterize these states as traditional "swing" states.
