He's hardly the one who started it. It just goes how stupid it is to talk about Romney being a 1%er and how that's bad when in fact the Obamas are also very much in the 1%

People are going to be pulling polls out of their @sses until election night, and few of them will have any validity. What matters is the pattern of polling over time, and particularly in the month of October, and even that is probably only going to matter little.

The bottom line is this: if trends over the past three election cycles mean anything, then about 45 percent of voters who will participate in this election have already made up their minds not to vote for Obama; however, before the Romneyites celebrate, they need to find a way to get that extra 8 percent of voters across the board. Some of that percentage will be gained between now and November. I'm guessing about 4-7 percent will be taken away from Obama between now and the day of the election. But that may or may not all go to Romney. It depends on Paul.

This will come down to turn out. This will come down to motivation of voters. It's hard to say who will win at this point. I don't think Romney will ever really overtake Obama by a significant margin. I think the real danger is whether Obama's voters who voted in 2008 are going to be particularly motivated enough to vote in 2012. That I just don't know.

I disagree with you on many things, but you usually seem to approach things in a rather intelligent way.

Average approval ratings from more than a year out....

It is very clear that Romney is the choice of the rich and intends to push more wealth their way by taking it away from the masses. What Main Street person would vote for a candidate who likes firing people, closes industrial plants, and outsources jobs? Romney is also a Mormon and as such will push the beliefs of his church if elected. If Romeny is elected we might as well make Salt Lake City our new capital.

While I am not particularly happy with the job President Obama is doing I also know that electing Romney would be the same as throwing every working person and senior off a cliff.

Mitt Romney has no record of 'pushing' his religion on anyone when in a leadership position. When he was the governor of one the bluest states in the country he certainly did not. He was very effective in that role and his religion had nothing to do with it.

Your sayin this is total hogwash and you know it. You are using religious bigotry to try to sway people's opinions and it's despicable.

Yes you did. You made the title up yourself. That sure as hell doesn't appear anywhere in the Gallup article. Nor does anything about either being positive or negative in average approval for a period of 10-22 months prior to an election having an impact on how that state will vote. You made that crap up yourself,

Gallup may have made the poll, but you are the one who jumped to the absurd conclusion in your thread

I think whatever peoples thoughts about the issue may be the more relevant question i would wonder is what percentage of people does this same sex issue actually apply to?i.ve personally known thousands of people over my lifetime and have yet to meet a same sex couple that wanted to get married,and of those thousands of people probably a figure of less than 1% have actually been gay so why is this non issue so critically important all of a sudden? like who cares? and why?

See, this is the problem with you Romney tools. Your minds are so narrow you have no conception of people not fitting into your neat little binaries. Obviously if someone doesn't praise your android paymaster they're an Obamabot. But if they say they're not on board with the Kenyan, then obviously they're a Paulsie.

Figures your robot boss would issue commands as an if...else statement.
