Latest CBS/NYT poll: Romney leads Obama by 1% (margin of error)
Seriously, how does this happen, if the poll is honest? I call bs.

Obama, Romney in dead heat in presidential race

CBS News Poll analysis by the CBS News Polling Unit: Sarah Dutton, Jennifer De Pinto, Fred Backus and Anthony Salvanto.

(CBS News) <snip>.

Forty-seven percent of registered voters nationwide who lean towards a candidate back Romney, while 46 percent support the president. Four percent are undecided. The one percentage point difference is within the survey's three point margin of error.

Romney leads by eight points among men; the president leads by five points among women.

The president's supporters are more likely to strongly back their candidate. Fifty-two percent strongly favor Mr. Obama, while just 29 percent of Romney voters strongly back the presumptive Republican nominee.

More than one in three Romney voters say they are supporting Romney primarily because they dislike Mr. Obama. Only eight percent of Obama supporters say their support for the president is tied to their dislike of Romney.

Republicans are more enthusiastic than Democrats when it comes to voting in this election, though just one in three registered voters overall are more enthusiastic than they were in the past. Roughly half of Republicans say they are more enthusiastic compared to past elections - up from 36 percent in March - while just 27 percent of Democrats say they same. /

The article gives a lot more breakdown, including that one fifth of those who had a candidate in mind professed a possiblity of changing their candidate.

1. Racism, mind control, ignorance, or a combination of all 3
I cannot understand how the very few people I know who can't stand Obama, and are voting for Romney, can come to that conclusion without it being one or more of those things. :(

I will do everything I can to move somehow, out of this country or maybe to the most liberal state, if Romney gets in office.

Get it now, or one of a million other designs!

2. You should move to Massachusetts, no matter who is in office.

We have less sunshine and you will need a warm copat sometimes, but you will find many more kindred spirits, expecially in Greater Boston and parts of Cape Cod, though we too certainly have our rednecks.
