    For Obama voters only!

    I'm interested in how you're feeling about this year's election.

    Are you pretty sure he'll win or not so much? Vote please!

    I think Obama is easily the favorite, but it is far from a sure thing.

    I think Obama is the likely winner. The biggest threat to his re-election is voter turnout. I don't think Romney will be able to keep up with him in debates. I also think it's fairly easy to hurt Romney by pointing to his flip flopping record. Therefore, if Obama's campaign focuses on getting people to vote, Obama will take the win.

    Obama is the likely winner, it will take several gaffes by the Obama campaign(which is highly unlikely) or the economy going into another depression before election time for Romney to win IMO. Obama will wipe the floor with Romney in the debates and I think that will swing a lot of people.

    Obama will squeak by, but if the economy takes another downturn he's toast.

    Re: For Obama voters only!

    at this point it's a toss-up, but I'll have a better idea once the debates start.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I am somewhat sure he will win. The incumbent has and advantage... I think Mitt Romney is a weak candidate who will has a problem connecting with the voter.

    unemployment will keep going down, Romney will keep saying silly things, and Obama will win by around 5%.

    Assuming "conditions on the ground" mean things like unemployment and the economy, the answer is simple. The debates allow Americans to see who can best address "conditions on the ground." Considering that an election is a competition to see who can best address those "conditions," then it makes sense to see those as a pivotal part of the election process. The conditions, in and of themselves, aren't going to win an election. Convincing the public that you'll do something positive with them will.
