There's a third possibility: two different polls showed two different results.
Two weeks ago a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed that by 44 to 37, veterans and their families favored Obama over Romney.

So now another poll says something different. That hardly makes me lying OR misinformed, does it?
Historically the military has always supported the GOP.

Polls will change for the coming months. What can't be disputed is that Obama is not doing that well for an incumbent.

Were you the one that mentioned the poll several weeks ago? I didn't remember who it was.

I know that's true. So when a poll of a Republican-leaning group shows that they're leaning toward the Democrat, that's a significant finding, isn't it?

But when a poll of a Republican-leaning group shows that they're leaning toward the Republican, it's hardly something to crow about.

And, yeah it was me that posted the Reuters poll. Questioning whether "a poster" was lying when Reuters/Ipsos had a poll result seems a little silly, doesn't it?

But rather than making predictions based on polls from 32 YEARS AGO(!), how about naming the states that will give Romney 270 electoral votes.

You do know that electoral votes are how Presidents win, right?
Many are now saying Romney can win. There is a good article by Thomas Beaumont of the Associated Press..." Warning signs for Obama on path to electotal map", posted 5/28/12.

There was another article I read that gave breakdowns on how Romney could win. They are slowly starting to happen. Looks like Wisconsin will go Romney, as will Florida, and so forth.

Another one by Tim Stanley of The Telegraph..."But in the last two weeks,things have chsnged. Obama's reelection is no longer guaranteed; some pollsters think it is unlikely. Day by day,the odds are improving that Romney will be the next President of the United States."

I also hear many people that voted for Obama in 2008 are now saying they won't vote for him again.

As far as the Hispanic vote going for Obama.. most of those states are for Obama anyhow, so it really doesn't matter.

Obama doesn't drwa the crowds like he did in 2008, he is met with protesters, he has become an aging rock star that no one wants to see anymore.

What happened to both Carter and Bush was the same thing. The ECONOMY. And unless this current economy turns around a LOT, Mr Obama may suffer those same consequences. He will be fired.
He spent all his capital in his first two years not by growing the economy so jobs could be created, but rather by pushing through a health insurance plan the country did not want. Remember, it passed the House by only 5 votes. And 62 Democrats who voted for it were fired in 2010.
Everybody can claim this poll, that poll, but the American people will vote with their wallets, as they do every time.
Yes I agree the American people will vote with their wallets. Because of that it is another reason Romney wins. The economy is a mess and not really improving. The majority of the American people do not want Obamacare, therefore another reason for his defeat. The list goes on and on. More than likely Obama is voted out in 2012.

The MSM is deeply invested in this being a horse race.

And the right is deeply invested in believing that Romney has a prayer.

Problem is - it's all fantasy.

The truth is the Americans dont believe the 2 wars we are in are worth right now.
Sure, you have some gun ho people( Rambo type ) that really want to shoot a gun to get their nuts off, but the average American thinks we should get out of these 2 wars that are NOT winnable. Also countries can win wars, but not conflicts such as we are in today...did we win in Viet Nam ? NOPE! Why? It was a conflict..

If the election were held today, Obama would win the veteran vote by as much as seven points over Romney, higher than his margin in the general population.

"I went to war for George Bush," said Grafton, 48, a retired Army master sergeant who served in special operations units in Somalia and Iraq. "But we can't keep policing the world."

Despite widespread disillusionment over recent wars, most veterans support some form of military action to keep Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons. That doesn't mean they want another ground war: Veterans lean toward a military spending policy that emphasizes special forces and unmanned systems.

Karen Grafton, who voted for Obama in 2008 based on his promise to end the Iraq war, now says, "I want someone to get us out of this economic turmoil. That's No. 1. I'm not sure he is the person to do that. But I don't blame him. He inherited a mess."

Federal Income Taxes on Middle-Income Families Remain Near Historic Lows

By Chuck Marr

Updated April 2, 2012

Federal taxes on middle-income Americans are near historic lows,[1] according to the latest available data.

That’s true both for federal income taxes and total federal taxes.[2]

Income taxes:

A family of four in the exact middle of the income spectrum will pay only 5.6 percent of its 2011 income in federal income taxes, according to a new analysis by the Urban Institute-Brookings Institution Tax Policy Center.[3]

Average income tax rates for these typical families have been lower during the Bush and Obama Administrations than at any time since the 1950s, as Figure 1 shows.

(As discussed below, 2009 and 2010 were particularly low because of the temporary Making Work Pay Tax Credit.)

Overall federal taxes:

Overall federal taxes — which include income as well as payroll and excise taxes — on middle-income households are near their lowest levels in decades, according to the latest data from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).

Oh, come on! "Most disliked President in modern history"? Where do you come up with nonsense like that? GWBush was polling in the high 20s, on par with Nixon, at the end of his term. Carter and Bush I were both polling lower than Obama at this point in their Presidencies.

But you're right about one thing - Romney is a dud who doesn't have a prayer.
