    I did not see an option worth voting for.

    The poll itself seemed seriously flawed and rather poorly thought out.

    WHY bother? The OP is seriously flawed as it provides no verifiable evidence for the premise. It fails right out of the gate.

    I would be more than happy to examine your verifiable evidence about the 2012 election if and when you ever do present it. Until then, you got nothing.

    Re: Why do those covering the election favor Obama so heavily

    Because people sense a turning point with the re-election of Obama. It's a referendum on the GOP economics policies of the last 30 years. Do we like where those policies have led us or do we want a change.? I have to admit the R's are finally making themselves clear on their policies and that has made things alot easier for Obama.
    I see a long line of Democrats in the Whitehouse and a healthy economy safe from banker tomfoolery and corporate welfare.

    since the election has not happened we do not know how the votes will come down but people who voted for Gore, Kerry and Obama 2008 are pretty likely to also vote again for Obama. They certainly favored Obama in 2008
