Reasons and numbers
When compared to 2008, Barack Obama’s early vote advantage has dropped by 22 points. That is according to Gallup, one of if not the most respected American poll.
In this year’s early voting Mitt Romney leads Obama by seven points, 52-45 percent. Four years ago, Obama led John McCain among early voters by fifteen-points, 55-40 percent.
The latest National Public Radio poll registered an 8 point swing in favor of Romney that puts him in front. The NPR poll, which showed Obama ahead of Romney 51- 44 percent a month ago, now has Romney leading 48-47 percent. Romney is doing particularly well with independent voters.
According to NPR:
“Most of the gains for Romney have come from independents, who went from favoring Romney by a few points before the debates to favoring him 51% to 39% after the debates.”
Obama’s left base, in the form of Michael Moore and MoveOn.Org, has responded with an ad which allegedly speaks for the Greatest Generation:
“If your voter suppression throughout this beautiful country enables Romney to oust Barack Obama, we will burn this mother f*cker down. I’m going to track down Mitt Romney and give him the world’s biggest c*ck punch.”
Americans raised in the homes of the Greatest Generation know the Greatest Generation…they are their mothers and fathers. This ad does not come from the Greatest Generation. This ad definitely is not the Greatest Generation.
What this ad reflects is the depths to which the institutionalized “progressive” left is willing to sink in its desperate bid to hang on to absolute power.
They were so close.
They won the Congress and Senate in 2006, and thought they had put the final piece of the puzzle in place in 2008 with Obama’s election. They could do whatever they wanted and America could not stop them. Their all-powerful centrally planned “progressive” big government would rule America in perpetuity.
In 2010 Americans thought otherwise.
Now, America needs to send “progressives” home licking their wounds from an obvious shellacking.
Furthermore, America needs to remember how sneaky, nasty, dishonest, irresponsible, selfish and contemptible “progressives” were between 2006 and 2012 and never, ever, ever vote them back into power.
The progressive spin machine is in high gear. Mitt Romney clearly has the momentum with the independent voters and his base is fired up. It will be a close election. But we need to stop the downward decline of America that’s occurred in the last four years, under President Obama, and even before that, under President Bush.
