Why does the margin o error keep getting bigger to show President Obama in the lead?

John Gregoire - why do you think Obama has to hide failure? Has there ever been a president who has been so viciously opposed and hogtied? All this by a greedy, ruthless corporate oligarchy that does not care about you at all. Just think of how much you could have achieved under the circumstances. Obama is still the better man because he cares about America and its people. If he had the numbers in Congress and the Senate, and if there was to be no more Filibusters, he would bring about the change that is needed.

Noted. Ty Cal.

President Obama would do even better to not engage in market mania demeanor and presentations. . .it obscures the truth that is in his messages... failing to convey his genuine intent, purpose and accomplishments. Romney would serve his nation and civilization best by immediately retiring to where his off shores are located, returning billions [or trillions] he has legally* embezzled from "We the People" to the national coffers and launching a lifetime expedition to locate his soul. [*according to his claims that all his financial activities to date--have been legal] Note: the vast majority of media news outlets should either shut down completely or identify their infotainment gossip and rumor mill communications accurately.

RE most commentary: Please attempt to think and research instead of digesting prepared key words and phrasing and regurgitating them on cue. Rehashed media mutterings are a cerebral wasteland--no history...not even recent true thought...nothing. Only the same trite and tawdry rearranged superficial nonsense and redundancy spewed forth daily. A bunch of grade school/junior high social studies "i didn't do my homework because i didn't feel like it so now i have to fake it" reports. . .sad...deeply sad. Recommend: (1) detox the bio-forms (2) spend at least one week in off-trail wilderness areas with no devices of any kind...higher elevations are optimal. . .REPEAT such excursions until brains kick into natural human functioning.

"Has anyone seen a positive ad out of either side???? Romney has no plan and Obama is hiding failure."
So squawked the Fox news parrot.

That is why I say there needs to be an anti-establishment campaign to encourage people to vote for any party other than Republicans or Democrats. All alternative parties should unite against the establishment.

I'm not sure how much credence I give the WSJ on anything. I am more interested in polls of likely voters which tend to show much better numbers for the President. I think the message for him, if there is one, is stay on the offensive against Romney's lies and obfuscations, stay on the tax returns and what Romney is hiding there, stay on the Bain truth and stay positive in his vision for what we can accomplish together. The president is a marvelous speaker and at his best when hammering home a positive message. No matter what much the Republicans drag themselves through, rolling around in it with them doesn't help, stay above that and Mitt and his crew go away for another four years.

Poor President Obama. If he gets re-elected, look at the mess he's going to inherit.

Thanks for the update, Cal! It's too early to make predictions, but it's interesting to see how public support for either candidate waxes and wanes.

May the better man win. Again.

As it is the electorate which decides elections, it would have been interesting to see which states were for each candidate as a whole - as a president is not elected by actual votes.

The ads I've seen on the Romney camp have been bald-faced lies. Easily disputed with facts and evidence, yet somehow, GOP never denounces them, never ceases with them.

If this country "elects" Mitt Romney and I use the term loosely because I believe it would occur through voter disenfranchisement and corruption, we will see a calamity of unbelievable proportions! We could see another World War, a huge increase in poverty and hunger in this country. Fraud run amock and US basically reduced to a feudal state--a banana republic existing solely for the mega rich...

Reagan Warned Us About Obama. (click here)

Reagan warned us about Obama, huh? Since that would involve looking into the future, he must have consulted with the official White House astrologer, Joan Quigley.

According to Wikipedia, "When Donald Regan took over as Chief of President Reagan's staff in 1985, he was told by Reagan aide Michael Deaver about Quigley. Regan, who frequently quarreled with Nancy Reagan, resigned in 1987 after the Iran-Contra affair and mixed reviews of his job performance. Although some claimed his revelations were meant as revenge, Regan revealed to the nation that Mrs. Reagan consulted Quigley in his autobiography For The Record. After the leak, Quigley was swarmed with media attention,[1][2] although rarely gave advice to the Reagans again. Of the entire incident, Mrs. Reagan stated, "Nobody was hurt by it—except, possibly, me."[citation needed]
Also from Wikipedia: "Lastly, Reagan's most famous statement that "Government is not a solution to our problem, government is the problem", has become the unofficial slogan for the rise of conservative commentators like Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh; as well as the emergence of the Tea Party Movement.[146]"

I'm not surprised at the following a man battling dementia has acquired...
From his son, Ronald Reagan's, book:
NEW YORK — Ronald Reagan's son suggests in a new book that his father suffered from the beginning stages of Alzheimer's disease while he was still in the White House.

The younger Reagan recalls how his father became uncharacteristically lost for words and looked "lost and bewildered" during the 1984 presidential debates with Democratic rival Walter Mondale. He says his father may have suspected the onset of Alzheimer's in 1986 when he was flying over familiar canyons north of Los Angeles and became alarmed that he could no longer remember their names."
