    There has been a fairly substantial Romney lead in the polls up until now. What happened? Did Sandy really cause that much of a swing or is media bias at it again? Seems like overnight it went from 52%-48% popular vote to 49%-49%?

    Discuss.

    It's the MSM's contribution to the Democrat "get out the vote" effort.

    Gallup still has Romney up 51-46 among likely voters. That is about the same percentage Romney leads among those who have already voted.

    People don't want to change horses in the middle of a stream... or a flood... or "The Mother of All Storms."

    Also... when conservatives nominate idiots who pontificate needlessly on abortion and other hot button moral topics, they hoist themselves on their on petard. The demokrats don't have to do anything at all except stand aside and watch the idiots have a blast. It's the sort of shock that leaves some folks saying awe.... shucks!

    Polls are nothing more than unreliable political gimmicks this close to an election.

    I'm real curious about this also, America is full of fraud and corruption. The Liar in Chief is just the tip of the iceberg. Maybe the long road back will start on Nov 6th., or maybe the slide into oblivion will be complete. Can a Nation who elected Barney Frank and Chris Dodd and Ted Kennedy and both Clinton's survive? Did I mention Chuck Schumer? How about Al Franken?
    Fraud and corruption is everywhere you look from your local Town Council to the White House, the only cure is to reduce the size of Government.

    And where there is no corruption there is just total incompetence.

    Good post. Romney being on record saying some to the effect that he wanted to get rid of FEMA may have backfired as well. The storm damage covers thousands of square miles. I don't see any entity other than the federal government that can deal with a disaster of this magnitude. There are situations where the free market cannot work and we have to take a, "one for all and all for one" approach.

    May be we should get ready for another 4 years of spiral stair case ??

    I recommend investing in Gun and Ammo companies. The value of your personal arsenal WILL GO UP, while your networth WILL GO DOWN. Just Life.

    Did Romney actually say, or almost say he would 'get rid of FEMA'?
    NO.
    Here..http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politic...ral-involvement-paul-ryan-budget-scrutinized/

    "Should FEMA be reformed to put a stronger emphasis on the states and less of an emphasis on federal aid?

    “Absolutely,” said Mitt Romney during a June 13, 2011, GOP primary debate.


    As a general rule, Romney added, it would be even better if the private sector could step in."

    Who would you rather have in charge of the rebuilding after Sandy, Barry or Romney? I'm pretty sure if Romney had been POTUS when the gulf oil spill happened it would have been capped much sooner.

    Oh ok. I read an article a few hours ago that said they were tied. Of course it came from CNN, so I shouldn't be overly surprised.

    They are not tied. The MSM and current administration, working in unison, want us to believe that. Any incumbent "tied" in a national race is usually in a heap of trouble. Add to that the lagging economy, Benghazigate, and Obama fatigue and Romney may do to Obama what Reagan did to Carter. I sure hope so as we cannot afford four more.

    That's a lot of double talk, He wouldn't get rid if it. He would just privatize it. If that had worked in the past, we wouldn't have FEMA.

    That's true.

    Of course, the jobs report isn't even out yet and CNN is already reporting adding 158,000 jobs and first time unemployment claims down 9,000.

    :upeyes:

    And enthusiasm for Romney is much higher than for Obama. Which means the lead is essentially even greater.
