No, Clinton balanced our budget, so we didn't have a deficit each year. He didn't get us out of debt. Deficit and debt are two different things. We are never out of debt.

Yes. You're correct.

Have to respectfully disagree. His behavior smacked of instability - poor impulse control and an overly-self-centered personality. These are traits I consider incompatible with disciplined, nuanced leadership ... especially in the present international political climate. We don't need governmental leaders whose default setting is secrecy; we don't need to revert back to being world bullies who launch pre-emptive strikes, etc.

In terms of national policy /political relations, how could I expect a person who can't control his behavior to work well with others; to listen to others' ideas and help affect positive policy change if he can't even keep himself from publicly bullying the moderator of a debate?

That he seemed to "get a little better" to someone (which I failed to see), doesn't help. The ship had already set sail. The two main things Gov. Romney communicated in the debate were: He doesn't have to obey any one else's rules, and that he has no obligation whatsoever to describe any of the things he allegedly plans to do if he becomes president.

I'm a Moderate and am skeptical of any politician, even those who identify as Moderates.

That said, this election cycle I'm voting Democratic because I personally feel the Republican party has been off the rails since Bush Jr. They'll have to earn back my trust. Mitt Romney is too full of truthiness to be a safe bet. Check this youtube vid out:

His focus is always on real issues. The day he produced his long form birth certificate online he was authorizing the strike on Bin Laden. He can multi task effectively.

I am a fan and will be voting for him but this ad,even to me, does not feel like he is addressing the real issues.
I agree. The Big Bird commercials are petty, distracting, and off message. I'm not a huge fan but given the other option, the President will get my vote.

GOP voter suppression crashed and burned in OH and PA, and those states are strongly pro-Obama. Keep in mind that early voting began October 2 in Ohio, and the polls exclude people who already voted (63% of whom voted for Obama), so the OH numbers understate Obama's advantage.

The positive unemployment numbers will also boost Obama, which is why the right wing is desperately screaming that the administration is cooking the books. (Apparently ADP and Gallup are in on the scam.)

The race is much tighter than it should be as a result of Obama's debate forfeit, but I do think he'll narrowly pull it off in the end.

VOTE, curlies, and make sure that your family and friends do likewise!

They haven't actually counted any votes yet, have they? I assume this 63% is a poll of those who have already voted.

Yes, this is an exit poll, which is quite reliable, and reflects the expected voting pattern. (which is why the Republican Secretary of State in OH fought so fiercely to curtail early voting: it increases turnout among traditionally Democratic constituencies)

Do you know how the poll is conducted, because I assume it isn't an exit poll. Maybe it is, but the logistics of conducting exit polls over a long period of time doesn't seem reasonable. Unless your pollsters are there at every voting location every day for the entire day taking a random sample, it would be very difficult to assess.

Exit polling NEVER requires the presence of pollsters at every location, even when voting is conducted only on Election Day. All that is required for a statistically significant sample is a large enough number of voters drawn from a sufficiently broad range of areas. Under the principles of scientific polling, multiple voting days actually makes measurement of voting preferences more precise, since it is easier to query a large number of voters at a wide variety of geographic and demographic areas.

In this case, the margin of error is 3.5%, which is well within the threshold of validity.

I simply wouldn't put too much stock in an early voting exit poll. It may, or may not mean anything except that more democrats are voting early. That would simply mean that more repubs would vote late. Nothing more could be assessed.
