The real polls are evening up now and it isn't a good thing for the bamster..  See, in the real world, as opposed to the liberal world, everyone knows that the undecideds go for the challenger. It is like asking a person, "A year from now, will you be married to your spouse?" If they answer maybe then the lawyers start clamoring because if you aren't sure you are probably moving.  That is an extreme example a and picking presidents is a lot more of paying attention the last few days or hours and then pulling the handle (or touching the pad now) when you hit the polling place out of anger.  When the economy is bad and unemployment high then independents go even more for the challenger and we are certainly there.

Let's also look at the polling.  Most of the MSM is using turnout percentages based on 2008 numbers.  Only an idiot would believe Obama will garner those numbers in 2012 but hey, it makes an hour of hopeful talk for Chris Matthews.  Obama's team knows the score and they are very worried. The president, in the middle of some of the worst crises this country has seen since 911 has spent 99% of his time campaigning. WTF?  He doesn't attend intel briefs and literally, has no clue what is going on in the mideast.  The big question now, even from the bought and paid for media, is whae were you guys so wrong on Libya and why were you so wrong for so long?

Barry is done. The best the left can do is whine for Romney's tax returns and criticize his son's surrogate birth contract. WTH is that?  The world is burning, the economy is running towards the cliff and the best the Obama camp can do is that? Nothing to run on at all?  4 years and $6T of debt and they have accomplished nothing?   Wookiechimp says 8% unemployment is normal. WTF?

Vote for something different or just stay home.  4 more years of this will kill us.

You asked for Obamamerica, now you are going to get it.  Stand by for suck or as Pelosi says, "Embrace the suck".

Are you kiddin' merc ? "Barry" is currently $1.28 with betting agency Betfair, while Mitt is $4.40. Looks like Mitt has missed the mark.

He seems to be doing pretty good from what I can see. Heck given how many stumbles Romney has had and the general crazy stuff coming out of the GOP at the moment doesn't seem like Obama needs to do much.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Obama only has to not step in the do-do like Romney has been doing, and it is all over.

i'll leave for two months after taking one day of abuse if the republicans don't take the senate and the executive.  You leave for 6 if they take both, with one day of abuse (none of which will be mine).  No liberal has taken the bet yet and I am open to all and will serve consecutive terms of punishment. Just think, months and months of no Merc if  I lose just one side!

I only bet for money Merc, greedy little money-grubber that I am. :D  I was simply pointing out that your optimism wasn't supported by the available odds.

Kind of like how everyone knows the challenger gets the bigger bounce out of his convention, since its his first true introduction to the American people and the incumbent is same-old same-old. The Romney campaign was even floating the idea of an 11-point swing in their favor after the conventions were over.

Doesn't seem to have worked that way.

The reality is that presidential elections are won by getting 270 electoral votes. Looking at the map right now, I have no idea how the Romney people plan to do that. There could be some unexpected external event that changes everything (that seems to be what the Romney folks are hoping for) but as the election is now, and has been unfolding all year, Romney will be very lucky if he holds Obama below 300 electoral votes.

Sorry Merc, but I am an independent who is leaning towards Obama, why? because even though i've had a really hard last few years (go ahead and blame the pres) At least the sitting president doesn't (at least where I can hear/see it) look down on me, talk about me like I am a lesser citizen or make assumptions about me! The one thing I am not and have never been is a victim, the second you call ME that, sorry but you lose my vote....

That source I haven't heard before, it would interesting to know if it has been a good predictor in the past?

It seems they are pretty close in the polls though. I think it will be a tight race for Obama in any case.

No, the have been in bizz only since 2008.

But in 2008 some bookies paid out early on Obama. They are generally not that wrong.
