I wonder what that percentage will be and I bet it will be much higher than many people can believe!

Americans are smart and know when the government is lying about many issues and how many people are better off than 4 years ago...

How many people know people who lost their jobs, got hours cut or have College grads move back home...!

Jesus. If people were really that dissatisfied with Obama and wanted him out, they wouldn't secretly pretend to support him and vote against him

Is this like those voters who supposedly lied to pollsters ahead of the 2008 election, and were secretly going to vote McCain?

How did that work out?

Why this constant need by the far right to embrace nonsensical conspiracy theories and just make things up? Is accepting that your extremist views just aren't that popular really so hard?

Yes you are so correct.

Like most upper management, all my have been bosses are liberals.

So us workers here in Texas have to keep our conservatives values on the down low.

For instance, the Liberals that run the oil and gas industry, really hate conservatives cause we want to slash taxes on corporations, and slash tax rates on the wealthy.

They hate that. So we must hide.

I doubt there are many who are afraid to admit to voting for him, but there are plenty who are embarassed that they are backing such a loser. I can see many keeping quiet about it to salvage their dignity.

If they are young they might. If you are under 30, there is a TON of peer pressure to support Obama and to admit supporting Romney could have social consequences.
