I think it will be extremely close. I also think it doesn't really matter. Romney and Obama will largely pursue the same type of policies with slightly different flavors. Both will explode the deficit, both will be ready to bomb brown people, both will increase "security" (decrease civil rights) because of the fear of terror.
Until this country gets a legitimate third party we are pretty much screwed. The two in power rotate it back and forth. We get mad at Democrats and hire Republicans, then we get mad at them and hire Democrats. The extremely wealthy control both parties and bend them to their will.

It's probably a little akin to wondering if you'd rather die by rats eating you alive or pigs eating you alive. One might be slightly better than the other, but I'm pretty sure the overall experience is the same.

Good points, thanks for your input, if not romney or obama who do you think would be a good president for this country and why? (Just curious)

Personally I want someone who keeps my taxes relatively low and stays out of my business and the business of bombing civilians overseas. I want someone who won't force their religion or morals on me and lets me do what I want as long as I'm not harming others. Sounds a lot like freedom I guess

Obama will be elected 100% guaranteed.
My reason is that Romney is his clone and there is no significant difference between the two. Both are funded by the same people. Regardless who wins the same path of war mongering, police state, big bank/corporations evil policies will continue.

It's hard for me to decide on this topic because I'm not a Romney fan. Nor an Obama fan. I wanted Herman Cain and he dropped out cuz ex gfs exploits him. I liked I liked the catholic guy who jus dropped out (with the disabled child, name completely slips my mind). But then he dropped out. I would prefer not to vote however that doesn't help me at all. Plus, the new healthcare policy scares me since I'm a nurse

That combination is marginally better, as he's a little less likely to fool as many people as Obama does, and a little more likely to create a little more growth.

I am completely 100% totally tired of Obama's ability to do something 180 degrees from what he says he will do, get no major media flack for it, then reiterate his original position and have people buy it. Its insane that anyone believes a word he says. I'd prefer Romney for that reason as he won't get that free pass

Although how the heck can anyone know what Mitt stands for? Are we getting the Mitt of 6 years ago or the Mitt of the Republican primary? They are almost polar opposites.
I can get excited for Obama leaving, but if Mitt is the replacement well I can't help but think it isn't much of an upgrade in the least bit. Here's hoping I'm wrong.

In all reality, I just want the Feds to go away. I want them to not exist in my daily, personal life. If they have a gridlock on every single issue or point, nothing happens in Congress. Meanwhile, the rest of the country goes about living without the would be additional regulations imposed on us. The way I see it - Congress needs to get nothing done because that means we can at least not have it any worse than it already is.
Everything they touch breaks these days..

I like Ron Paul and also like Herman Cain. No way I'll vote for Obama, but I don't really like Mitt either. I hate politics.

I'm just a bit saddened that this should be an election where smaller government matters. We've had huge government and a lot of people seem not to like it. And the Republicans run the class of clowns to take on Obama and someone who has a history of governing via big government.
I just can't bring myself to hold my nose and vote for the guy. In the past I would have. I would rather vote for someone who doesn't have a chance in hell and feel good about my vote. Romney will carry my state big time anyways.

I say Obama loses. Look at his showings in recent democratic primaries, against "uncommitted" in one state, and barely beating a convicted felon that is currently in federal prison in WV. I say he loses the election, but something happens and he declares martial law and wont leave office. Or he does it and the election doesn't happen. Either way, he wont be re-elected, but wont give it up.

If he's in office for another 4 years, then God help us. As a healthcare professional I can tell you Obamacare is not only going to destroy small businesses but will be a death sentence for anyone over the age of 75. Medicaid will no longer pay for dyalisis and other treatments? So not being able to afford dyalisis will now be a death sentence? People that have been paying in taxes for 75 years will be sent home to die? No, that's not his decision. Another thing, I'm sure you've seen how he was all for cutting military benefits and pay, but at the same time he is all for giving healthcare to illegal aliens? So if someone crosses the border and gets hurt in America they are entitled to healthcare, but hard-working men and women that are here legally and work legally cannot? Also, this country depends on its natural resources. Cutting jobs in the gas, oil and goal industry is NOT going to create jobs it will DESTROY them. We need our natural resources and if he doesn't understand that it's just another reason that supports he's in the wrong line of work. ROMNEY all the way for me.
He's wanting to put natural gas and oil away too. There are tons of oil rigs here in Tennessee and infact, my neighbor works on one of them. The future of he and his children pretty much depend on whether or not Obama is re-elected. His job that he has done for 8 years will be gone and his usual $7,000 a month salary will go to a much smaller salary.
We've done just fine the past 100 years, I say Obama can keep his change.

And Obama has a high amount of % voting for him, because in a crowded room if you don't vote for him you are automatically considered a racist. The other day I had someone accuse me of being racist and it was anti-American of me to not vote for Obama. My response was "do you see that USMC sign on my truck?" He said "yeah". I said "I spent 7 months in Afghanistan, so am I still being anti-American?" I think that usually shuts people like that up for me anyway but there is a nurse at the hospital that accuses everyone of being racist because they aren't voting for Obama. It's a shame.
