After a few weeks spent tracking down and questioning pollsters and the reporters of polls, I can assure the reader that pollsters are the modern-day alchemists. They promise to turn numbers into predictive gold. We'd all like to believe these magical powers exist, but we shouldn't. The pollsters of 2012 just don't know who is going to win in November any more than did the pollsters of 1980 know that Ronald Reagan was headed towards a landslide in that late-breaking year.
Hugh -- Your guy said he'd let the auto industry -- which is pretty important in Ohio -- go bankrupt. "Managed" bankruptcy, sure, but he basically blew off the employees. He's a capitalist -- and capitalists are not job creators, they are VALUE creators. They see employees as a cost (Finance 101.) But workers are already surrounded by bosses looking to offshore jobs and cut retirements. And with unions dying, government is their only protection. Why would they put it in the hands of the same crowd that's been downsizing them? Romney says he'll make it easier for Americans to start a business -- but most people don't want the risk of a business, they want the security of a job, healthcare, and an education for their kids
