    August Prediction Poll! Who will win - Obama or Romney?

    Yes, I understand that it's still months away. Yes, I understand that no one can really know. This is just a poll getting an idea of what you're thinking/feeling right now. If the election was tomorrow, who would you place your bets on for winning?

    I was leaning more toward an Obama reelection a couple months ago. Now I'm leaning in the other direction.

    I think Romney will win if he articulates a credible plan to stimulate economic growth, because the country wants to go in a different direction. But not otherwise.

    Obama appears to be in good shape so far and has decent-sized leads in most of the battleground states. If the election were held today, Obama would win. He seems to be on track for a fairly solid win, unless there is another economic calamity stemming from Europe's monetary crisis (which is not unthinkable).

    Romney is such a lousy candidate that real conservatives will refuse to vote for him and most people will find him totally untrustworthy due to his massive flip flopping. So Obama will win.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    As it stands, many of the right's solid constituents see Obama as a threat for various reasons. He's not hated by the world, he's not a neo-imperialist, the guy has a pretty cool and collected demeanour about him. He's Clinton Part II and very little seems to stick to him. That alone may be enough for many of your brethren to come out and vote against him.

    With the exception of Jon Huntsman, Romney was the only sane and intelligent candidate compared to the rest of the geniuses that the GOP put up in the primaries. Face it, whatever "real conservative" you had in mind wasn't going to have a prayer in the primaries, much less the general election.
    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 an pessimist; I have lost faith in the "intelligent American" (NOT an oxymoron !)
    I believe that an election can be bought...with enough money and cleverness.
    Remember Germany and the NAZI propaganda machine of the previous century ?
    History can and does repeat itself.
    We will be in for another four years of misery.
    Hope I am wrong about everything .....

    Re: August Prediction Poll! Who will win - Obama or Romney?

    The real heart of the question is whether or not the GOP base will put up with Romney, a moderately liberal Governor of an East Coast state, in order to get a Kenyan-born Marxist out of the WH.

    Romney has severe image problems, and frankly, wasn't wanted by the Repubs back in the primary. The expectations that Repubs will toe the line in this anti-politician climate is a long shot.

    I believe that Romney can be easily manipulated....by the tea-bagging conservatives....So they may as well vote for him....What has the GOP leader, (Rush L) to say about this ??
