Romney is in a great position right now- seems Obama has scaled back campaign in FL, NC,and VA- they are circling the wagons around just enough states to secure a narrow Electoral College victory. Strange but we might be moving toward a tie in the Electoral College at 269 each. In that event the House of Representatives would elect the President with each state casting ONE vote based on its partisan makeup. In that event Romney would be President since Republicans control more delegations.

Scary to think this may shadow a Bush/Gore election night!

Ben, It does not help your cause that you are so smug, but when you also misrepresent the facts while claiming to sit on the "side of truth," well I guess that pretty much discredits you completely. It is pretty clear to anyone with an open mind (this apparently does not include you) that Obama was dishonest and/or disingenuous with comments he made after the Libya attack.

"Conservatives argue that it is a woman's job to raise the kids." Wow, what a boat load of crap Ben. You are quite hateful towards your political opposites to the point where you can't stick to the facts but, instead, choose to falsely malign. I am a conservative and others like me who I know all agree children need a mom and a dad. Surprise, that is how God ordained it. While there are times when divorce absolutely cannot be avoided, seems evident there are way many selfish men and women who decided there was no need to honor their vows or provide the environment their children deserve to grow up in. You're "very involved in father issues," well apparently not with regard to the most important duty of a dad, namely to love your child's mother.

A CNN survey I saw the day following the second debate said that about 55% thought Obama was stronger, with 45% for Romney. The poll was observed and recorded immediately after the debate; CNN has had one for each debate thus far, I believe. Regardless, I'd have to agree strongly with the majority.
