PRINCETON, NJ -- U.S. registered voters, by 46% to 38%, continue to say they are more likely to vote for the Republican presidential candidate than for Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election. The generic Republican led by the same eight-percentage-point margin in September, and also held a lead in July. The August update, conducted just after an agreement to raise the federal debt limit, had Obama with a slight edge.

Obama has a little over a year left as President. January 2013 can't come soon enough!

Why? So we can elect a Republican that wants to end social programs, but not our foreign wars? Why should we be excited over such a thing?

The Debt Ceiling Debate Debacle apparently did not pay off.

Someone remind me.....how many talking heads declared that the President won that battle? Including many right here on this forum.

Maybe you should step outside of the left-right box and see that the Democrats will take awya your cherished programs as well. Hell if they continued the GOP program from 2001 onwards, what makes you think the Demopligans are gonna be different from the Republicrats?

When the social programs are unsustainable, as they are, then they have to be addressed.

And if you can't see why ending Obama's stint as President will be a good thing, then you must have been unconsious for the past three years. Everything he's touched has turned to crap except one thing. He had the courage to answer yes to the question: "There is an 80% chance OBL is in a bunker we've identified. Do we have your permission to go through with the strike." And even on that, he took a day to decide a simple question that anyone else could have answered in two seconds.

The guy you voted for is a total and complete failure. You'll come to grips with that at some point.

So end the social programs that cannot be sustained that actually help Americans over the wars that cannot be sustained that do nothing for Americans?

Typical makenosense Republican.

"No name" republican has been doing strong for quite a while. Once you put one of the running candidate's name next to Obama, it doesn't get pretty
