Gallup has the “Mormon Savior” 7 points up and he just took the lead in the RealClearPolitics Electoral College Map, 206-201 with only nine states left that are listed as toss-ups. Add another 42 electoral votes from Florida & Virginia that are looking like they are going Romney, and thats 248 towards the 270 needed for a win.
Then there’s the shock poll out of Pennsylvania-with its 20 electoral votes- that has Mitt up by 4
amongst likely voters. The rest of the tossup States are all polling within the margin of error.
We’ve got ourselves a horse race!
Romney didn’t lose, Obama had nowhere to go but up and Romney had nowhere to go but down after their first debate that Romney won so handily. CBS called it 37% Obama, 30% Romney with 33% calling it a tie.
However on the economy – which decides elections- that poll said Romney was more capable of fixing things by a 64% to 34% margin over the President.
That with the report coming out today showing that welfare is now a TRILLION dollar a year expenditure – up 32% during Obama’s tenure at President. We need a real economy where people contribute to the system and don’t need handouts because there are no jobs around so they work and take care of themselves.
And the REAL unemployment rate is nowhere near 7.8%… its closer to 20% when you strip away all the veneer that Government puts into its cooked statistics.
Our social fabric is also tearing apart.
Violent crime is up 18% – its first rise in over 20 years. Is it wrong to believe that this rise in
crime may be linked to a lousy economy? The “Devil will find work for idle hands” as the saying goes.
There is no dignity in living off the Government like there is in working for a living. Another four years of Obama and we will be facing the same kind of upheaval going on in Greece.
But at least he won’t throw gasoline on a fire like the President has.
Which reminds me, during the debate, did the President really blame high gas prices on a booming economy leading to shortages? And not his fossil fuel hostile policies?
