#1 ...Add to that the fact that the Dems, having thrown aside any pretence at seeking Government for the benefit of advancing the country rather than the desire for power for its own end, and motivated by self-loathing, and general loathing, have been using every filthy trick in the book to ensure that as many people as possible won't even consider voting Republican, however sensible and rational that decision is.
If you're non-white, the Republicans (the party of Condoleeza Rice, Colin Powell, etc) is inherently 'racist'. That's because the Dems have belatedly dragged a half black individual from the shadows and thrust him on their throne, and of course you can't not support a half black politician unless you're a racist.
It's 'anti-Latino' because it's 'anti-immigrant', because it intends to enforce border controls and clamp down on the infiltration of illegal aliens into the country.
It's 'anti-woman', because it does not support the killing of unborn individuals just because their continued existence is an inconvenience to a parent.
And, of course, the majority of the media shills and twists/ignores/suppresses the truth for the Dems at every opportunity. And because, generally, spewing hatred and lies against those on the right is par for the course for the classless and generally decency-deficient Lefties.
Given all the above, it's pretty amazing that half the electorate still seems to have the intelligence and fortitude to intendi to vote Republican.

#2 Because the GOP has barely come out of their convention and started to spend money on ads while the DNC has the major media providing the equivalent of ads for them all the time.

#5 What they seek is ochlocracy [mob rule]. The tribal tyranny of the majority and the rule of passion [social justice] over reason.

#6 I'd say our candidate is part of the problem. Today he said there are parts of ObamaCare he wants to keep. A few weeks ago he said the Boy Scouts should have gay leaders.
Obama is driving us off a cliff. Having the choice of taking the same route, just slower, isn't much of a choice.

#7 Dems remind me of the Labour party in UK where they flood the country with immigrants and unemployed people and give them the lifestyle they crave.As they dont drink/go out they just need enough money to cover the bills and not work=Heaven/paradise compared to the countries they come fromwhere you dont work you are out on the streets.
No wonder as a country we are broke!

#8 I dont think it will be close. Exit polls provide little more than designate party affiliation. People are afraid to walk out of the polls and speak out against their party. Our country is split pretty much down the middle in a two party system. I think the moderate conservative democrats, and there are a number of them that feel their party has been derailed by the far left, will vote against Obama. They called it the Bradley effect, I believe. I think we will see a clear win on the Romney side.

#11 Today at Church the priest received a spontaneous round of applause after the homily. I have never seen that before in 40 years of Mass attendance. Why the applause? Because he cut throught the BS and just said what he - and most of the congregation - believed, with no PC BS. Why is the election close? Because the Stupid Party has not (yet?) figured out what our priest did.

#12 The Moron Vote and the addiction to the wet-nurse's teet = why this election is close when Willard should be up by abt 6 pts at this time...
