The poll should be:

Your preference for the 2012 elections?

Obama
Romney
I hate both FML
 
So it seems both campaigns super-pacs are getting into the mud slinging game with lies. The GOP has an ad out claiming Obama is "gutting" the work for welfare program claiming you don't have to do anything to get your check. Politifact rated the ad as a pants on fire lie because its false.

Obama's super-pac has an ad claiming that Bain fired a whole company and profit off of it and then the worker goes on to talk about how his wife died from cancer and it implies that somehow Mittens is indirectly at fault for this. The truth is that the woman died 5 years after he lost his job and people responsible for the ad claim that's not what they are trying to say.

I don't understand what kind of idiots fall for these ads. Most people know who they are voting for and if your dumb enough to base your vote on an attack ad then you really shouldn't have the right to vote IMHO

They do it, because history shows that it works....:dry:
 
Ya Kelly it makes me sick that weak minded people can be swayed so easily. I mean do some research the internet is there for a reason
 
I laugh, but also get a bit angry at how dirty both sides' ads get closer and closer to election day.
 
Neither candidate has a record of achievement that they can point to, so it's just an onslaught of personal attacks by both sides. "Vote for me because I'm NOT the other guy." That's the gist of these two campaigns so far, which is pathetic and hilarious at the same time.

Doom and gloom, D's and R's leading us into that Monetary Collapse...

I like the moderators for the most part, not cool on Bob Schieffer, but the rest are fine...
 
Reset the poll and put Batman on it as well :woot:
 
I reset it, but I'm not adding Batman.....lol
 
New Poll opened, now that we have more players on the field....
 
The million dollar question of the day: who will ETM vote? :wow:
 
I give you permission to add Jessica Alba if you put Batman :awesome:

Meh, she'll be going for Stein, I'm sure.....so the Green choice is there...
 
I'm getting back into "teacher mode".....my vacation ends Thursday....

Not that I think it's a huge problem(since I think most America knew this was coming), but Romney loses any moral high ground he has claiming he wants a clean election discussing issues when 2 days later he puts out an ad that politifact claims is "pants on fire"
 
It's between Obama and a Third Party at this point.

Depends how close the polls are November 3rd.

If Romney has any chance of winning, I'm voting for Obama. If Obama is leading comfortably then I'll vote for Gary Johnson just to make a point (he's anti-war, anti-police-state and anti-prohibition) even though I disagree with his fiscal policies to some extent.

Internet rascals are more 3rd party than most main stream voters....that is why Paul and Johnson do so well on internet polls...
 
thanks H_H for updating the poll, I just didn't have enough time earlier to do much more research than what I already had..... : )
 
Big info came out today via e-mail to Gary Johnson supporters. TV and Radio ads will hit the air after the RNC and DNC. :woot:
