Presidential Election 2012 - #4186 - 689 Reasons to Defeat Barack Obama - National Review Online (2) Democracy Corps Poll Shows Romney up 15 Among Independents - Hot Air (3) Only 31% Believe We're Better Off Than 4 Years Ago - Hot Air

689 Reasons to Defeat Barack Obama - National Review Online - 1. Because he was not the one we were waiting for. 2. “Forward.” 3. Because Julia needs to get off her lazy, federally subsidized butt, get a real job, and pay for her own damned birth-control pills. 4. Because lots of people fail at their first real job. 5. Because “Winning the Future” was not a very good slogan back in 2005 when it was Newt’s. 6. Because the country is ready for its first African-American former president. 7. To give him the free time to write his third memoir. 8. Because he’ll have even more “flexibility” after November if he’s back in Chicago. 9. Joe Biden. 10. So that dissent will once again be the highest form of patriotism. 11. Because he didn’t quite get the message in 2010. 12. For claiming that he would cut the deficit in half. 13. And then adding more than $5 trillion in new debt. Read more..........

Democracy Corps Poll Shows Romney up 15 Among Independents - Hot Air - First, take a look at the independent vote for the race, which in this format is the fourth column: That’s a 15-point lead for Romney among independents, 53.4/38.0. Fifteen points. Just to remind everyone, in the D+7 turnout of 2008 in a Democratic wave election, Obama won independents by eight points, 52/44, on his way to a seven-point victory overall. That’s a 23-point shift in this key demographic, way outside the margin of error, and it’s hard to square that with a two-point Obama lead now.  Read more........

Only 31% Believe We're Better Off Than 4 Years Ago - Hot Air - No wonder Democrats tried their best to run away from the Reagan Metric this weekend. Surrogates such as David Axelrod, David Plouffe, and Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley tried dodging the inevitable question in every presidential election: are we better off now than we were four years ago? A new poll from The Hill shows why Democrats want to change the subject every time that question gets asked: A majority of voters believe the country is worse off today than it was four years ago and that President Obama does not deserve reelection, according to a new poll for The Hill. Fifty-two percent of likely voters say the nation is in “worse condition” now than in September 2008, while 54 percent say Obama does not deserve reelection based solely on his job performance. Only 31 percent of voters believe the nation is in “better condition,” while 15 percent say it is “about the same,” the poll found. Just 40 percent of voters said Obama deserves reelection.  Read more........
