USA Elections 2012: Obama or Romney?

Guess it has been asked before but whatever

In my direct environment in the Netherlands, actually everyone is supporting Obama, including myself.

My uncle and some of my cousins who have lived in the US for 19 years turned American this year and will vote for the 1st time this year (They will vote for Obama )

Romney seems clueless, but during the campaign he said one important thing for Poland (though he may not even know where Poland is). So I'll go with him.

I'm alaways right, even when Im wrong...

It hardly matters which side wins, they are almost the same. They waste billions on the campaign trying to convince people that they are different.

They might be "almost the same". But there are differences and those differences do matter. Two issues that come to mind are Supreme Court nominations and gay rights. These are important for lots of people.

This is my opinion on politics and elections in general tbh.

Obama will win easily, it's funny how the media is acting like it's close.

I hope you're right. I've seen numerous polls saying Romney is up a point in the general election but have also seen Obama leading in the electoral college system (which is the only one that matters)

TT Doubles Current Ranking: #48 (CH Ranking: #8)

The large majority of national polls in the past week have Obama up. But more importantly Obama leads in all but a couple of the swing states, and leads in the really important ones. He has a large electoral college buffer that makes him a decent sized favorite.

Re: USA Elections 2012: Obama or Romney?

Obama has defects but Romney would be worse than George W. Bush as a president, I mean, he's already shown that he's a complete moron. But the worst part of it it's that he's intelligent for his own interests

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: USA Elections 2012: Obama or Romney?

The party that fails biology, political science and history asks us to believe they're going to get an "A" in economics.

That's why I voted for Obama. Although down ticket I did vote for some GOP candidates in some local races.

For the record, I'm an Independent, former GOP voter. Interestingly, according to those political tests I've moved from dead center to center/left over the years without changing my opinion on anything except gay rights. Which I am upfront enough to admit changed largely when my brother came out.

This in its entirety.

Both are just figureheads and it will make no difference who eventually wins

There are larger forces at work behind the scenes and no matter who wins the same will happen


Nothing will change.

Re: USA Elections 2012: Obama or Romney?

And further to this.

I was outnumbered 10-1 today in work, and insulted because I dared to show support for Romney

Obama is exactly the same. At least Romney is not mugging it up for the cameras, pretending he gives a shit about the Sandra Dee victims.
