This might be a reason Governor Romney could lose....

Almost 1 in 5 undecided voters are less likely to vote for Governor Romney because of his wealth.

http://content.usatoday.com/communities/onpolitics/post/2012/07/mitt-romney-wealth-gallup-poll-/1

On the question of whether Romney's wealth makes a difference in whether they will vote for him, 19% of independents say it would make them less likely to do so -- about the same as the national average.

Interesting data. Some are more likely to vote for him because of his wealth. However in the bracket were the median and average for income sits only 1% are more likely to vote for Governor Romney.

http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/00000.html

according to the above site the median household income was $51,914

Of course many households also have two wage earners.

Not very encouraging for supporters of Governor Romney

The one where he said he is the worst Republican to go up against Obama even over Paul or Bachmann.
Well, I think he said that because he thought Romney wasn't conservative enough. Or perhaps because of Obamneycare. Not sure it's that great of an attack piece though. :)

truly stunned that you could watch an Obama campaign ad and walk away with the impression that Romney will lose the election. :hmm:
it's an exceedingly brilliant political ad, though. Rom has been framed by his own republican colleagues, as well as dems, that he is a job destroyer.

Pretty bad image when then top concerns of this election are economy/unemployment. (of course....economy is always #1, even when it isn't a problem. :D)

I'm going to go all Dave here and make a prediction: at least thrity days before the election it is going to become apparent to all that Obama is going to swamp Romney (assuming he gets the voter turnout) and nearly all of the big money and attention will be focused on the GOP's efforts to grab the Senate and/or retain control of the House.

A brillant move by Obama would be to campaign this fall against the House along the lines of those those stalemating bums out. That is, after all, the truth-as percieved by the vast number of sensible Americans.

Harry S. Truman ran a similar campaign against a "do nothing congress". He had another term and the congress flipped to his party.

But then again most people weren't so distracted by reality t.v. and such.

It would be a lie to say this Congress has done nothing when they've added an enormous amount to the national debt. The Republicans have tried to intervene in this economy a lot, not only by voting for more spending, but also in regards to granting corporations eminent domain privileges for "job creation".

Forget party lines, forget the economy, this is why he will not win the election this fall

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/09/opinion/krugman-mitts-gray-areas.html?_r=1


Nails it - he's clearly hiding something which will not be well received if/when it comes out, and he'll get crushed in a debate if it gets to that point and he still hasn't released that info.

The fact that his father handled things, when running, in the complete opposite fashion, is the final nail.

Two reasons i think romney will win http://billingsgazette.com/news/state-and-regional/montana/u-s-supreme-court-strikes-montana-ban-on-corporate-donations/article_ddb5f485-1c06-5a33-8f06-846134e11a75.html

Romney: "harvest buissness", sounds like a firesale to me.

And Romney is closer to the zionist, this i find intriuging. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/is-this-the-real-reason-we-sent-u-s-troops-to-jordan/

A mini Nemesis in the making?
