You really can't buy into anything that these pre-election polls say.
What these polls signify is a tactic to either encourage or discourage you from or to vote for one candidate over the other or one political party over the other.
Most of these pre-election polls are false and bias for one side or the other.
The only one that counts in the end is the election results.

An old Social Security card with the "NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION" message.
Our Social Security

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social
Security (FICA) Program. He promised:

1.) That participation in the Program would be
Completely voluntary,

No longer Voluntary

2.) That the participants would only have to pay
1% of the first $1,400 of their annual
Incomes into the Program,

Now 7.65%
on the first $90,000


3.) That the money the participants elected to put
into the Program would be deductible from
their income for tax purposes each year,

No longer tax deductible

4.) That the money the participants put into the
independent 'Trust Fund' rather than into the
general operating fund, and therefore, would
only be used to fund the Social Security
Retirement Program, and no other
Government program, and,

Under Johnson the money was moved to
The General Fund and Spent

5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed
as income.

Under Clinton & Gore
Up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed

Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are
now receiving a Social Security check every month --
and then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of
the money we paid to the Federal government to 'put
away'-- you may be interested in the following:

----------

Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the
independent 'Trust Fund' and put it into the
general fund so that Congress could spend it?

A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democratically
controlled House and Senate.

----------

Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax
deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?

A: The Democratic Party.

----------

Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social
Security annuities?

A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the
'tie-breaking' deciding vote as President of the
Senate, while he was Vice President of the US

----------

Q: Which Political Party decided to start
giving annuity payments to immigrants?

AND MY FAVORITE:

A: That's right!

Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party.
Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65,
began to receive Social Security payments! The
Democratic Party gave these payments to them,
even though they never paid a dime into it!

----------

Then, after violating the original contract (FICA),
the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want
to take your Social Security away!

And the worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe it!
If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of
awareness will be planted and maybe changes will
evolve.
But it's worth a try.

Actions speak louder than bumper stickers...THE ONLY QUESTION LEFT IS WHO GOT THE KITTY

I say that this Romney should have logically no support at all. It is a puppet of some criminal establishment. His proposals are real disaster.
1. to low taxes for richest
2. clearly, if he lows taxes for richest, he must take those money from somebody, it means he will liquidate socialcare, he will repeal medicare, he will increase taxes for this middle class and poor
3. he will make no new jobs, he has liquidated job places in USA, he will ruin this bad economy of USA till the rest and very, very quickly
4 his foreign politics, it is a complete dangerous disaster. He intends to continue war in Afghanistan and probably attacks another countries: Russia, Iran etc. And it can develop global world war.

Ron Paul: this wise, excellent candidate, he wants to:
1. end the wars, take US troops homes
2. to improve life standarts in USA, to help for middle class by reducing taxes
3. to make socialcare and honest medicare
4. to change foreign politics
5. to stop to waste money for wars and some another mindless foreign issues.
Ron Paul is the only chance.

If this is true, sadly the racial divide is extreme, and that is sad. If any race votes strictly on the race of the candidate, it goes to show just who are the racist ones, Not only that, Obama could not have won based solely on the AA vote.
If this is not true (which I suspect) this goes to show that media manipulation in that they are counting on continuing a racial divide and are using this information in order to create an environment of hatred rather than unity among Americans.
That's strange when did Americans ever had any unity, I'll tell you when never.......

We are not crackers or as you say 'crakkkas".
We are human beings just like you and I don't put myself above you,we are equal as far as I'm concerned.
In my view,Obama has done a piss poor jub to this country and because of that he should be giving the boot.
Not because the man is black but because the man can't lead.
He couldn't manage or govern a shit house let alone govern a country.
I'm sure that there are a lot of black politicians out there who can lead this country to a better future but Obama is not one of them.

I'll tell you a story that is true,where I was born and raised at we had a mayor that was black and that mayor did a fantastic job for a little old mining town called Gary,WV.
He was the best that Gary had but upon winning another election the man had either a heart attack or a stroke,I;'m not sure which one but anyway he passed away.
I cried my eyes out because I dearly loved that man for who he was and not what he was.
Now here is what happened afterward,during the days of this short black man who stood tall as our mayor we had a police force and since C. Hodge had past away and was replaced by white mayors there has been an alarming decrease in traffic control and the place is plum covered in most places with coal dust all over the place because the white mayors over time had dissolved the police force to nearly none and let the inmates run wild,if you know what I mean.
The little town of Gary has went from a community to where you could leave your doors unlocked to a town where you have to lock your doors and windows and if you're out and about driving through Gary you have to be awful careful because people there are running through stop signs,pulling out into traffic,speeding and you have coal trucks there running that will you off the road without a care.
All that later stuff never happened on Mayor Hodge's watch and I truly miss that man so much.

The problem with Blacks, Asians, Hispanics, pretty much a lot of races other than white, vote based on emotions, race, community than their own well being.

It is astonishing how these communities despite being in dire poverty, vote year after year to the same set of polticians because they are from their race, tribe, community etc..

thats why the Asia excluding Japan/Korea & some countries, Africa, Latin America, Mexico, etc., are in dire straights.

Because of the GOP attacks on Obama, these minorties have rallied together to support him due to pimitive emotions irrespective of his track record, credentials, etc..

so because of the large immigration over the years, US electorate has changed significantly. So unfortunately with the election of Obama the US has started the journey of becoming a third world country !!

Rational Objections are welcome, NO point in calling names, blah blah blah.....

yes, what these repubs did is terrible.

But how can that influence the decision to support Obama instead of Mitt. Performance & track record w regard to economy should be only decision points.

Blacks unemployment is 25%- highest ever in history. If people are rational, then they will vote for Mitt because unfortunately Obama has failed on the most important factor of economy/jobs & that is survival for people !!

Rubbish, Mitt understands the economy better than Obama. what was Obama's qualification when he came in - community organiser, senator with little admin experience.

Come one !, use common sense here. with such a mess on the economy/jobs, there is no choice but to try the next one !

The economy crashed because of the decisions of Bush. The do nothing Republican Congress has kept the economy from recovering, for political reasons. If they become totally in charge, the economy will completly crash, even more than the first time. The only ones that will benefit are the very rich. Most of the middle class will move to the poor class. The Affordable Care Act will be gone as well as Medicare and Medicade. Most of you will have no insurance for yourselves and your families. This congress and the Tes Party have a lot more plans that are not being told. Our country will be destroyed!
