I think Gallup is just slightly less biased than Puffington, don't you agree.

Just wait until the debates and Obama has to answer for the economy.

You didn't even look at the link, did you?

It's an aggregate of ALL polling state-by-state (not just the one national poll you prefer) to show how many electoral votes each candidate would have at this point. There's no bias in it - it's a collection of all polls.

National polling isn't particularly helpful or meaningful in predicting the winner of the election. Electoral votes are how a candidate wins an election.

Go learn something. Don't run away in fear and stay uninformed just because you don't like the site.

Don't like the pace of the recovery? Tell it to the do-nothing congress.
Blaming the President because his opposition is actively undermining the economy is dishonest partisanship at its worst.

I know how the Electoral College works. We still have a little over 6 months to go, and the debates are coming. How much deflecting will Obama do regarding the economy? If he brings up class, gender, and racial warfare, which is currently being used to deflect, it won't hold any water during a live debate. Romney will tear him to shreds.

Unemployment isn't getting any better. The housing market is slumping...again. People are worried and won't give a rat's ass about the smokescreens being put up all over the place when they go into to the voting booth on 11/6.

Obama killed Bin Laden:

Easy enough to verify, yet they refuse:
"A federal judge on Thursday denied a request to release photos and video taken of Osama bin Laden during and after a raid in which the terrorist leader was killed by U.S. commandos last year."
SOURCED: http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/story...
"In court papers, the Justice Department had said that the images of the deceased bin Laden are classified and are being withheld from the public to avoid inciting violence against Americans overseas and compromising secret systems and techniques used by the CIA and the military."
REALLY, but killing him won't, occupying countries won't - WHAT A LIE!
SHOW the video - if it exist.
Freedom of Information Act - as big of a joke as Obama's promise of 'transparency'.
Anyone who cannot see that Obama is just another megabank multinational corporate controlled puppet is asleep.
WHY NOT??

George H W Bush signed the NAFTA treaty.

Clinton signed a law that enacted the aspects of that treaty.

Show me a copy of NAFTA that has Bill Clinton's signature on it.

You do realize that treaties are negotiated & signed. Then they must be ratified by Congress to go into effect.

NAFTA was not ratified. They did not have the votes.

In order to require fewer votes, they wrote a bill that enacted the various aspects of that treaty.

Clinton signed that law, not the treaty.

Here's how Obama has impacted the economy...

----------

The University of Chicago’s Booth business school recently surveyed the nation’s top economists, and the vast majority agreed that the economy would be in worse shape today without the stimulus.
http://www.igmchicago.org/igm-economic-expert...

the Council of Economic Advisers’ most recent assessment of the stimulus in which they note that, as of mid-2011, there would’ve been between 2.2 million and 4.2 million fewer Americans employed if the bill had never passed.(They round up a number of studies from places like the CBO, Moody’s, Goldman Sachs and so forth.)
http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files...

Or, if you’d rather not take the White House’s word for it, check out Dylan Matthew’s comprehensive round-up of nine economic studies of the stimulus bill.

"... none of the studies are flawless. But while the optimistic studies do, in fact, support the conclusion that the stimulus worked, there is some reason to doubt that the pessimistic studies support the conclusion that it failed. "
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/ezra-klei...

----------

But it wasn't enough to return us to the booming 90s within two years, so according to the right, it was a failure.

The stimulus did what it was designed to do. If people wanted continued effects today, it should have been bigger or we should have had another stimulus.

But the GOP has undermined all efforts to stimulate the economy, shifting the focus to the mythical "debt crisis." Their preferred intervention is to implement the failed austerity policies that have created double-dip recessions in England and Europe.

IOW - the GOP plan is to make things worse then try to pin the blame on Obama.

Photos, videos and records are sealed from the public for fear of releasing them will put our troops and nation at risk. Yet, Obama can use the killing of Bin Laden for political gain. This ignorant POS will do anything to get re-elected, even risking our soldiers and American life's. The lies and broken promises he made are one thing but this is the lowest of low.
Obama to Open Situation Room to Tout bin Laden Attack
In a first for network television, NBC News has been granted unprecedented access to the most secret and secure part of the White House, the Situation Room. In a “Rock Center with Brian Williams” exclusive airing on Wednesday, May 2 at 9 p.m. Eastern Time, President Barack Obama and his national security and military teams, relive the pivotal moments of the raid targeting Osama bin Laden.
The iconic photograph taken inside the Situation Room offered the world the first glimpse of a national security team at work during the Special Operations mission. Now, we will hear from many of the people in that photograph about what was taking place on that historic night, highlights an NBC press release.
“We want to present the definitive account of what took place leading up to and during the tension-filled hours of the mission targeting Osama bin Laden. The Navy SEALs Special Operations teams executed an ambitious, dangerous mission months in planning. Our viewers will hear details never before revealed and see the nerve center of the White House Situation Room in this special broadcast,” said Steve Capus, president of NBC News.
On “Rock Center with Brian Williams,” Williams interviews Obama in the Situation Room about one of the country’s greatest military missions, which until now, has been shrouded in secrecy.
Williams also interviews Vice President Joe Biden; Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 2007 to 2011; Tom Donilon, national security advisor; Denis McDonough, deputy national security dvisor; and John O. Brennan, assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism.
As Obama opens the secretive White House Situation Room as an interview stage to hail the one-year anniversary, the broader goal for the president is not to just to remind voters of an enormous victory on his watch, it is to maximize a political narrative that he has the courage to make tough calls that his opponent might not.
"Does anybody doubt that had the mission failed, it would have written the beginning of the end of the president's first term?" Vice President Joe Biden says in laying out Obama's foreign policy campaign message. "We know what President Obama did. We can't say for certain what Governor Romney would have done."
The strategy underscores the fact that the Obama who ordered the raid as commander in chief is now seeking a second term as president. The risk is the political blow-back that can come if he is seen as crossing a line into politicizing national security.
"Sad," said a Romney spokeswoman. "Shameless," said 2008 Obama election foe John McCain.
By Dave Eberhart
No Roger, what is sad is that George Bush & Mitt Romney declared Bin Laden irrelevant & not worth the effort.

What is sad are people like you who refuse to give Obama credit for realizing that Bin Laden is not irrelevant, that the 3000 that died on 9-11 are not irrelevant & future security of this country s not irrelevant.

Mitt Romney said that he would not go into Pakistan to get Bin Laden.

Romney said it was not worth the time & money to chase Bin Laden.

YOU CANDIDATE!

And then you have the nerve to have a fit for Democrats to point this out?

You should have a fit A fit that your candidate could care less about 9-11 & the security of this country.

Wow. You're very confused.

Obama never claimed the stimulus was a failure.

Nobody ever promised that unemployment wouldn't exceed 8%.

Worrying about stimulus spending during a recession is like worrying about water conservation when your house is on fire.

The only proven method to address a recession is stimulus spending. Debt grows during that process, then when the economy recovers you focus on paying down the debt. That's how it's always worked.

But the GOP is invested in a weak economy so they are shifting the focus to the debt in order to justify deep cuts that will make the economy worse. It's all part of their party-before-country election strategy.

And the US is NOTHING like Greece. That's a ridiculous analogy that demagogues and the uninformed make. I won't try to guess which you are.

**********

President Reagan campaigned on an explicitly articulated, four-point economic program to reverse this slow motion collapse of the American economy:

1. Cut tax rates to restore incentives for economic growth, which was implemented first with a reduction in the top income tax rate of 70% down to 50%, and then a 25% across-the-board reduction in income tax rates for everyone.

The 1986 tax reform then reduced tax rates further, leaving just two rates, 28% and 15%.

2. Spending reductions, including a $31 billion cut in spending in 1981, close to 5% of the federal budget then, or the equivalent of about $175 billion in spending cuts for the year today.

In constant dollars, nondefense discretionary spending declined by 14.4% from 1981 to 1982, and by 16.8% from 1981 to 1983.

Moreover, in constant dollars, this nondefense discretionary spending never returned to its 1981 level for the rest of Reagan’s two terms!

Even with the Reagan defense buildup, which won the Cold War without firing a shot, total federal spending declined from a high of 23.5% of GDP in 1983 to 21.3% in 1988 and 21.2% in 1989.

That’s a real reduction in the size of government relative to the economy of 10%.

3. Anti-inflation monetary policy restraining money supply growth compared to demand, to maintain a stronger, more stable dollar value.

4. Deregulation, which saved consumers an estimated $100 billion per year in lower prices.

Reagan’s first executive order, in fact, eliminated price controls on oil and natural gas.

Production soared, and aided by a strong dollar the price of oil declined by more than 50%.

These economic policies amounted to the most successful economic experiment in world history.

The Reagan recovery started in official records in November 1982, and lasted 92 months without a recession until July 1990, when the tax increases of the 1990 budget deal killed it.

This set a new record for the longest peacetime expansion ever, the previous high in peacetime being 58 months.

During this seven-year recovery, the economy grew by almost one-third, the equivalent of adding the entire economy of West Germany, the third-largest in the world at the time, to the U.S. economy.

In 1984 alone real economic growth boomed by 6.8%, the highest in 50 years.

Nearly 20 million new jobs were created during the recovery, increasing U.S. civilian employment by almost 20%.

Unemployment fell to 5.3% by 1989.
