There were polls in July of 1980 showing Carter beating Reagan. Plus, the polls now are done by the minute, they are partisan, and the major news channels use the polls as political tactics to guide the elections for an Obama win. I just can't trust the polls. I do trust the basic good sense of the American people, and, if I'm wrong, I'll be very disappointed in my misjudgement of the American people. Romney is not optimal by any strectch of the imagination, but if he does what he says he'll do, then it doesn't matter. We need a competent president who will push government to get of the way of American enterprise, then we need a president who will maintain a strong military and national defense, but keep us out of war and stop the drone insanity. I think Romney will do this -- we know Obama hasn't done it.
