OH AND BTW: Obama and Romney are TIED in the polls
Should we just call this one early for Romney? Y’all don’t want to be bothered with having to go to the polls do you?
There are certain things we can always count on. There will always be a rainbow after the storm, likewise there is actually no gold at the end of said rainbow. We know that we all will at some point die and of course, Malcolm is always right about politics.
Now, some time ago, still very early on in the political season, our resident Political handicapper Malcolm declared the race over and in fact in favor of Mitt Romney. According to recent polls, his predictions might seem rather genius.
A new CBS News/New York Times poll, has Romney at 47 percent and Obama has 46 percent among registered voters, a difference that’s within the poll’s three-point margin of error. Despite several weeks of an onslaught of attacks on Romney’s refusal to release his tax return and his record at the private equity firm, Bain Capital, it would seem all for naught as the race for the White House is now too close to call.
60 percent of voters say Romney’s experience at Bain will not influence their decision. 73 percent, say Romney’s personal wealth will not be a factor. However, about one in five voters say these issues will make them less likely to support Romney. Romney gets the edge over Obama on handling the economy, 49 percent to 41 percent, but Obama is seen as doing more to help the middle class, by a margin of 52 percent to 38 percent.
The Republican is gaining momentum. I just thought you all should know. We now send you back to your regularly scheduled mindless reality show.
