In fact it's looking more and more like he's going to win in a landslide no matter which clown wins the nomination.

Well I guess if the election were today, Obama may survive. Too bad it's next November.
We will be treated to a parade of Obama's best friends: Rev. Wright, Tony Rezko, Bill Ayers, and the rest.
Michelle's outlandish vacations paid for by us will be mentioned.
Photos of Obama bowing and kowtowing to foreign dictators, kings and emperors will be in campaign posters.
Gasoline will be up, food costs will be up, unemployment will be up, despair will be up and confidence will be down. The only thing besides costs for basics that will be up will be our 1. national debt 2. people on the dole.

More BS polls from Iwog that don't mean squat.

I'm pretty sure these polls aren't from Iwog. This one was from United Technologies at Princeton.

People don't vote for 'generic' candidates in real elections.

Very true. The 'generic' candidate allows people to construct a mental image of what they wish a Republican candidate was like.

Against a REAL candidate, warts and all, Obama will win in a landslide. His reelection is essentially guaranteed.

Romney gives a huge percentage in charity

Is the Mormon Church really a charity?

I bet wealthy people give more in charity, in terms of percentages than the middle class and the poor.

Of course they do, they make a lot more money than they need to live.

If you made $2M a year, you could buy a Porsche, Eat out with $200 every day, pay a $10000/month mortgage, buy a half a million dollar Catamaran, each and every year and still have $1M left for everything else: Jetskis, Escorts, Cocaine, Charitable Donations, etc.

Whereas if you make $30k a year and give a couple of thousand to charity, that's a major sacrifice...

Thunder, it is all about percentage. Biden .01 percent. Obama 1%...Romney 15%.

Several people have tried to explain it to you. You refuse to address their arguments, you refuse to talk about the issues involved, and instead you go back to your trite childish cliche: "It's all about percentages."

You do your party proud.

Romney did NOT donate 15% to charity. Most of the money he gave to "charity" went ot the Mormon Church, which then used the moey to further their right wing causes. NEWSFLASH: That is not chairty. Charity is when money is used to help poor people, not to further political ideaology. Romney also donated money to the homophobic Massachusetts Family Institute. He also donated to the Hoover Institution, which is a right wing THINK TANK, not a charity.

Iwog, you ever feel funny carrying the pom poms from the parking lot to your office?

Do you ever feel funny with your priest's cock in your mouth?

Go team pedophile. Rah rah rah.

Nomograph is correct.

In this primary, "generic GOP candidate" is outperforming all actual GOP candidates when put up against Obama in nationwide polls. The warts matter.

Exactly zero credible polls in the last month have put any real candidate ahead of Obama in such a matchup. He's ahead of, or statistically tying, all of them.

Obama is close to tied with Romney. (Only 3/9 polls give him a statistically significant edge.) He's beating Paul. He's crushing everyone else.
