VOTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is the thirteenth reminder to register to vote for the general election. Call and/or visit your local Supervisor of Elections’ office. Alternatively, you can use an online app. One is posted in the upper right-hand corner of this blog. However you do it, register and then vote. This is an important. The Republican platform is alarmingly regressive. The next president could appoint several Supreme Court Justices. Much is at stake. Your vote could be important; this election is expected to be close. Remember, the 1960 presidential election turned on one vote per precinct. The 2000 presidential election was even closer in Florida, actually within the margin of error of the counting machines.

Today’s (8/22) Polls

Today is the twelfth day of the dismaying Ryan candidacy. Five days until the GOP opens their blather-filled convention in Tampa. While they run away from Todd Akin at light speed, here are today’s presidential tracking polls:

  • Race

Rasmussen: Romeny 46%, Obama 44%, some other candidate 5% (likely voters)(3-day)

Gallup         : Romney 47%, Obama 45% (registered voters)(7-day)

  • Presidential Approval

Rasmussen:  Approve 48%, Disapprove 51% (likely voters)(3-day)

Gallup         :  Approve 46%, Disapprove 49% (registered voters)(3-day)

The Dog Torturer has still not gotten a bounce from naming the Medicare Eliminator as his running mate. The latter has fired up Democrats as much as his own base. This is now small wonder considering he not only crafted his infamously extreme budget, but co-sponsored numerous bills with Todd Akin. Now Ryan is trying to pretend he did not try to limit access to birth control and narrow the definition of rape. Most women, however, will see through him before long.

VOTE!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is twelfth reminder to register to vote in the general election. Visit and/or call your local Supervisor of Elections’ office. Alternately, use an online app. One is posted on the upper right-hand corner of this blog. The Republican party’s platform, to be approved at the convention next week, increases the urgency. It actually endorses a human life amendment to the U.S. Constitution. That is a positively fringe position. Your vote could be crucial. Remember, the 1960 presidential election came down to one vote per precinct. Al Gore’s 2000 “defeat” was even closer in Florida, actually within the counting machines’ margin of error. So get out there and register, then vote!

VOTES!!!!!!!!!!!

This is the eleventh reminder to vote in the general election. Visit and/or call your local Supervisor of Elections’ office. Alternately, you can use an online app. One is posted in the upper right-hand corner of this blog. This is important; the 2012 elections are shaping up to be close up and down the ballot. Remember, the 196o election turned on less than one vote per precinct. Furthermore, the 2000 election was closer than the counting machines’ margin of error in Florida. The future of  the rightward-skewed U.S. Supreme Court and the rest of the federal judiciary is at sake THIS year, so get out and register, then vote!

Today’s (8/21) Polls

This is day 11 of the regrettable Ryan candidacy. It is a very dark and rainy day in Gainesville. While drought has ravaged the nation, it is a distant memory here, for now. Ensconced in the recollection of smoke from fires mostly to the north blowing over  this city, here are today’s presidential tracking polls:

  • Race

Rasmussen:  Romney 45%, Obama 44%, some other candidate 5% (likely voters)(3-day)

Gallup         :  Romney 47%, Obama 45% (registered voters)(7-day)

  • Presidential Approval

Rasmussen:  Approve 49%, Disaaprove 50% (likely voters)(3-day)

Gallup         :  Approve 45%, Disapprove 48% (registered voters)(3-day)

 

The numbers continue to be very stable. As the RNC approaches, Romney and Ryan are stuck having to distance themselves from the incredibly male chauvinistic Akin. While most Republicans have denounced this clod’s comments, Rep. King of Iowa actually defended him. The people in his Iowa district should show him the U.S. Capitol building door!

VOTE!!!!!!!!!!

This in the tenth daily reminder to register to vote in the general election if you have not alreqdy done so. Call and/or visit your local Supervisor of Elections office. Alternatively, you can use an online app. One is posted in the upper right-hand corner of this blog. This is important. Many of this year’s elections promise to be very close. Remember, the 1960 Presidential elections came down to one vote per precinct. Moreover, the 2000 contest in Florida was even closer, within the counting machines’ margin error, so every vote counts.

Today’s (8/20) Polls

Today is the tenth day of the Ryan (booo!) candidacy. A week until the Republican National Convention (hiss!) starts. Definitely NOT breathless with anticipation, here are today’s presidential tracking polls:

  • Race

Rasmussen:  Romney 44%, Obama 43%, some other candidate 6% (likely voters)(3-day)

Gallup         :  Romney 47%, Obama 45% (registered voters)(7-day)

  • Presidential Approval

Rasmussen:  Approve 49%, Disapprove 49% (likely voters)(3-day)

Gallup         :  Approve 47%, Disapprove 47% (registered voters)(3-day)

  • Generic Congressional Ballot

Rasmussen: Republican 42%, Democrat 41% (likely voters)

This is as close as the Democrats have been on the GCB below reforge the 2010 election. The president’s approval and disapproval are equal in both poll. His 49% in Rasmussen is the highest he has reached in some time; Democrats continue to get fired up. Why Romney moved back ahead in the Rasmussen race poll is not clear. Perhaps that preposterouapp stunt appearance at the Villages with his grandmother worked for the Medicare Eliminator.
