Barack Obama has opened a significant lead over Mitt Romney in a Bloomberg National Poll that reflects the presumed Republican nominee’s weaknesses more than the president’s strengths.
Obama leads Romney 53 percent to 40 percent among likely voters, even as the public gives him low marks on handling the economy and the deficit, and six in 10 say the nation is headed down the wrong track, according to the poll conducted June 15- 18.
The article goes on to say that the key to victory in the 2012 election will be voter turnout.
If the Republicans can continue to blame the economy, while doing everything in their power to sabotage any hopes for recovery, they just might win.
However if the Democrats can simply allow the voters to get a good look at Romney, televise his uncomfortable interactions with "the little people," and simply show him side by side with the President, we win.
And of course while all of this is going on the Right Wing is throwing a billion dollars into advertising in an attempt to beat the President, while purging potential democratic voters from the rolls, to stack the deck in their favor.
No matter which side you're on I think we can all agree that this election cycle is going to be an all out war. I only hope Democracy will not end up as a casualty.
