The question was asked of the voters, however it's the politicians that are trying to tell us what our answer is...and we are allowing them to write their own job performance reviews. It's like a drug addict being allowed to administer his own drug test.

The only poll that counts is the election.

The question should be: who would you trust with your life savings?

...of course, so many people don't know what life savings is, so maybe that wouldn't work.

I think Romney is struggling because he really is just a nice meek guy...he needs to start getting his message out there...at least he didn't apologize like Obama does.

Romney is a stuffed shirt with only one agenda - getting that next big promotion. People don't see him as on their side. Which wouldn't be so bad if he were on the side of some great cause beyond himself becoming president.

But we've got to vote for him anyway. I think the Romney campaign needs to switch to a "he's not Obama" campaign. That may be negative, but it's the only thing that's going to work for him.

Because Republicans couldn't put forth a decent well rounded moderate candidate if their life depended on it.

You had your chance with Huntsman, but you all decided to go and have a showdown between the mormon and the radical evangelical.

Republicans have no one to blame but themselves and their taste in candidates.

After his 47% comment, elections are over for Romney.
I am not sure it is good these elections were decided so early.

Because as bad as Obama sucks as president, Romney would suck worse.

Plus, the typical voter is too uninformed to have any real idea what is happening, and how to fix it.

Struggling according to what the polls? Liberals love polls because it gives them false security. They thought Kerry won Ohio all day long too. Rather almost had a heart attack that night. lol

Struggling?

It is mostly due to the press/media. Think about it. All people hear about him from the media is mostly negative. Yet the same press/media will go to bat for Barack, do their best to ignore negative stories for Barack. Romney hasn't been perfect, but this election would be his easily if it weren't for a press that campaigns for Barack H. Obama.

Ah yes, the "liberal media bias"

Refuge for those who have no sound argument to contribute.
