    Not who do you want to win, but who do you think will win.

    I agree it will be President Obama, but not because the election is fixed.

    I certainly don't like the fact that our vote will be counted in Spain, that should be illegal.

    But I think Romney can beat Obama, he is more organized. I think it will be about 52% to 48%.

    I watched a real good video by Dick Morris, politically he is very smart. He said that in the last 60 years, the "undecided vote" has always gone to the challenger about 70% to 30%. Right now the polls are running about 45% each for Obama and Romney. If so, the 70% would give Romeny 52%, and the 30% would give Obama 48%. I am hoping Morris is correct, he usually is.

    Well look at it this way...I would rather vote for an self proclaimed Atheist who is pro life,believes marriage should be between a man and a woman,etc. over a "professing" Christian who supports planned parent hood and thinks same sex marriage is a good idea. Vote principals.

    The electoral college elects the President. Popular vote, aside from being just an indicator, does not always follow the electoral vote. I think President Obama will win based on key swing states like Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, and Ohio.

    Suppose-----just suppose---the vote turns out like the Bush vs Gore vote of not so distant past

    But this time the "hanging chad" runs against "O"'s favor-----and the Supreme Court "clowns" are called in to decide

    ??????????

    If Obama wins, it will be because many republicans will refuse to vote for Romney.

    Also, if the jobs number and the general economy improves it gives Obama a better chance. If it doesn't, Romney just may pull this one out.

    The largest increase on those making under 250k (a promise from King O that would NOT happen) will doom Obama.

    With great sadness I think you are correct. I am inclined to believe that we, the church, is in a great spiritual battle because we have turned our backs on the Lord (left our first love) and what we are seeing and what is coming is the result. This nations future is in the hands of the church and the church is thumbing its nose at its calling.

    So the question becomes, what did you do to effect a change that would have given us a decent choice this November? It seems to me this is another case of sitting in a comfy chair, Monday morning quarterbacking, giving quaint Bible verses to explain the situation, and doing nothing about it.

    Kind of like praying for the hungry and giving them no food.

    Kind of like criticizing the military and never served.

    Kind of like condemning human suffering as sin and disregard the parable of the Good Samaratan.

    The socialists will retain the executive branch but lose the senate. Romney's neocon war cabinet is not popular with many REAL conservatives. Hillary has done a good job. IMO of course.

    Its interesting how some have not answered the question,but rather put in their political propaganda.

    For myself - I don't really know - because at the moment there are too many variables. Unemployment rate, local Congressional races, gas prices, ect, ect,....

    Will Evangelicals refuse to vote for Mitt because he is a Mormon?

    Who will Mitt choose as a Veep

    Will Obama be able to energize the youth and Black vote like he did in '08?

    Could always be an Oct Surprise

    I think it could be a very close race -both in popular vote and the EC. Ohio and Fla could hold the key

    I think we still have a long way to go. There's been talk about action against Iran before the next election, on the thought that such a thing would get the "warhawks" behind the current president; I think this would be a serious mis-calculation. I can't think of a thing right now that would garner American support behind such an action. And if I were a Republican, I'd immediately be throwing that "Nobel peace prize" thing out.

    It would have to be a Special Ops strike, and it would have to be 100% successful.

    Then there's the jobs report for June. 80,000 jobs...but 85,000 new filings for disability.

    I haven't heard Romney provide a plan that will actually turn the economic situation around. I'm glad he's going to see about repealing Obamacare, if the House doesn't do something about it first; but I think Romney would be better off focusing on the economy and presenting his message as a voice of hope.

    I'm not voting, because right now, I really don't know.

    And if your principles allow you to believe that the Christian causes of the day are more important than the god somebody worships, then vote for the atheist.

    But this is what I mean about Christendom thinking winning an election is more important than winning people to God's Kingdom.

    Is being against planned parenthood and same -sex marriage bigger issues in pointing folks to Christ than is worshiping a false god?
