    Nope.  On all the issues I care about (funding of critical social services, a tax structure that doesn’t heavily favor the top 1%, the environment, gay rights, corporate funding of politics, etc etc), Obama is clearly the candidate for me.

    I don’t see how people could vote for Romney following those incredibly contemptuous remarks about half of the country as victims who will never take responsibility for their lives.  Those “victims” include much of the Greatest Generation, veterans, etc.  I didn’t pay federal income taxes for years while I was in graduate school, living off student loans to earn my degree.  I now have a great well-paying job and am happy to pay my share of taxes so that others can have those same opportunities.  I think this is taking much more responsbility for my life than some smarmy rich guy who was born into wealth and power.  /end rant/

    Voting Obama. Nothing Romney has presented so far will change that decision.

    I think it is all bullsh*t.  “Romney did SO well!  Obama didn’t even show up”  Blah blah blah.  I didn’t think Obama did that badly in the debate and I extremely disliked the way Romney acted and treated everyone.  I just think he is paying people to hype about how great he did.  I don’t agree.  *end rant 🙂

    @cbee:  THANK YOU!! I think that talking-heads have been really overplaying the “Obama lost” card. I saw the whole thing, and though at the end I knew that Romney would be declared the winner by the news media, I did not think Obama was so bad.

    Jim Lehrer was the one who lost the debate. He didn’t ask any interesting questions or call anyone on anything, which creates, for a lot of people, the impression that the facts are not really facts. Ugh.

    No, my mind has not changed.  If you are looking ONLY at the public speaking component, then Romney did better in the debate.  In terms of eye contact and confidence, he was more successful.  Unfortunately, the boost for Romney is from uniformed voters that are paying attention to HOW he talked as opposed to WHAT he said.  As my DH so eloquently puts it, “Romney told his lies better than Obama told his truths.”  It was determined that he told 27 lies in 38 minutes.  I will be proudly voting for Obama.

    @eimajleigh:  That’s such a good way to put it!  It sucks that you can “win” a debate by telling a bunch of outright lies.

    I voted “no” in your poll. Nothing I have seen has caused me to change my mind.

    I disagree with having more than one go as president. I like Obama but I’d prefer someone new. However, I’m still voting for him. Damn charismatic bastard he won me over easily! Hahaha

    I voted for that I haven’t changed my mind, but that’s not true. Just the closest to the truth that I could vote for in that poll. 

    I was wanting to vote for Ron Paul, but I want my vote to count, and I really do not want another four years of failure, so I’m voting for Romney… if I knew Ron Paul could get elected, I’d vote for him in a heart beat.

    This sounds about like me.
