What is funny is how close it is with the popular media rooting for Obama the whole time. Look at CNN, the networks, Yahoo, etc. -- they frame everything in a way that supports Obama and show that he's leading and what it will take him to win. They scrutinize Romney and downplay any advances he's made. If it's this close it just shows people are down on Obama-nation. Oh, I wish the news outlets would report the news and not try to affect it.

Blackmanrap, chew on this:
According to a new CNN poll, Romney is beating President Obama 59 percent to 35 percent among independents even when third party candidates are included. The poll has the race deadlocked at 49 percent, but the sample includes 11 percent more Democrats than Republicans, 41 percent to 30 percent, a bigger gap than recent elections have witnessed.
What's more, the poll found a slight edge for Romney when it came to those who call themselves "very enthusiastic" about voting. In that category, Romney beats Obama 42 percent to 37 percent... I believe we will be sending President Obama a two word message this evening. YUU'RE FIRED.
If the latest CNN poll is even close to being on target, we will be saying goodbye to Barry tonight.
There are only three possible scenarios. Narrow Romney win, a much narrower Obama win or a Romney landslide. I'm leaning to the latter.
Republicans, with the knowledge of a certain Romney defeat, were frantically trying to implement all of their voter suppression tactics. From rigged, paperless Diebold voting machines, to shortened voting hours designed to cause long lines and frustration, to intimidating billboards and even deliberately purging the voting list of Democratic voters. But even with the addition of wall-to-wall ads paid with deep corporate pockets are not enough to get Romney elected. Since he only represents the interest of 1% of Americans, how could he possibly get a majority of votes, except through underhanded tricks and fraud?
You can say what you want about Obama, but it's all of you that will pay for Romney's policies. Just like when the state Republican party forced a huge increase in all of our property taxes.
When the boss lays off the person in the next cubical and adds all of that person's workload to yours, cuts your pay by 25%, but gives himself a 25% raise, why do you want to vote for his best friend, Mitt Romney, just so he can do it again? That's what Romney did with Bain Capital. That's who he is.
roadtoruin: "If the latest CNN poll is even close to being on target, we will be saying goodbye to Barry tonight." Actually the latest CNN polls show a tie nationally. But that doesn't matter. Bush lost the national vote but still manages to steal the election. What matters are the swing states, and Romney is behind in every state he must win to take the election. We won't have Willard to kick around anymore after Wednesday. Unless the Supreme Court is willing to hand another election to the loser.
ruined ==== Rasmussen (which has traditionally favored Republicans by a significant margin) has the race tied as does CNN and Politico. All the rest of the polls have Obama ahead nationally. And Romney is getting hosed in most swing states. Turn out the lights, Willard.
