Yes, I guess a lot of us are disgusted with both parties and their politicians, but when we have to make a choice (rather than stay home) I hope people will vote for Romney. We can't let Obama have another term because he might get two or more Supreme Court appointments and that would be disastrous. Many people won't bite the hand that feeds, and the biggest advocate of handouts are Democrats, so if half the people pay no income tax it's not in their interest to vote for somebody who wants to cut their entitlements. It's sad, but true.

As Mitt Romney assumes the role of presumptive Republican nominee, polls suggest a competitive general election matchup between the former Massachusetts governor and President Obama. Typically, both candidates poll in the mid-40s, while 10 to 12 percent remain uncommitted to either side.

Among these uncommitted voters, Rasmussen Reports polling shows that just 22 percent approve of the way the president is handling his job. Seventy-two percent (72 percent) disapprove. As for intensity, just 2 percent strongly approve, and 40 percent strongly disapprove.

At first glance, this seems like good news for Romney. These uncommitted voters will be difficult for the president...
