Explaining Romney's Surge

The big question is not why Romney is finally rising in the polls but "why do nearly 50% of voters still say they support Obama ? For all the reasons above, plus ignoring the Constitution, $Trillion deficits, no budget, no plan to end this mess, bypassing Congress, ridiculous grants to Democratic cronies, Fast and Furious, blocking Canada's oil pipeline, excessive vacations, lying about almost everything, .... The real question is "WHO are these people still supporting him ? ... can't they read ?

Simple. People who are 'single item' voters: free contraceptives and free abortions, food stamps, Obamaphones, welfare checks, subsidized housing, free education for less or not qualified students, union members that feel they deserve to earn more in pay and benefits that others doing the same job. How does that jive with the Ledbetter 'equal pay for equal work' act.

National Security, responsibility, integrity, liberal and justice for all, freedom from the heavy heel of government mean nothing to these people. It's a shame but the motto seems to be 'give me mine & give me more and let others pay for what I consider my 'rights' Greed and Envy are self-destructive traits.

To Derek - no most of them cannot read. They are functional illiterates who wait to be told what to believe and when to believe it. TV is the modicum of information and you don't find much political info on shows like Jerry Springer, House of You Name it, Toddlers and Tiaras, etc. You get the drift.

I agree.

I've always wondered why nearly 50% of the people in this country still support this guy.

two reasons--because of his left of center approach to national policy, and because of his skin color. don't forget, there are still people in this country that hate capitalism and whites and they have been trying for years to get into power and bring this country down to its knees. they almost did with obama

I always suspected they were made up largely of many (not all) of the 47%. The Dems long ago set out to create a national political machine based on pork & welfare.
They don't care about Obamacare because they just see free stuff for them. They don't care about Operation Fast & Furious because they think they'll never be in the line of fire themselves. They don't care about bad energy policy or deficits because "other people" will pay for it while they still get their subsidies.

These people are uneducated. Kids are leaving our high schools with very little knowledge about the real world. Everything is geared toward "college". Personally I think we should be teaching critical thinking skills along with some real life knowledge about what a checkbook is and how to use it. These are the people who love their Obama money, and their Obama phone. They don't pay taxes so they have no idea where the money comes from. And they certainly don't understand that govt takes from one and gives to another.

It's just the 50% that Willard MITTens Romney hates!

"Tonight the part of Wile E. Coyote will be played by Vice President Joe Biden."

Thursday night's debate between Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan went according to the super-secret plan of Karl Rove to not only defeat but deeply embarrass the Democratic Party.

Rove had previously arranged for President Obama to take two Ambien before the first debate.

Not even a maniacal, all-powerful Rove could be blamed for the Democrats decision to attempt to cover-up the details of the terrible tragedy in Benghazi or the serial malfeasances before or after the attack of 9/11 that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three...
