After watching two of Frank Luntz focus groups, I do not understand. How can these people decide from a debate which way to vote? I use more input; the internet, newpapers, friends, family, and several radio and tv stations. These people were supposedly undecideds and yet in both groups what appears to be more that 75% decided one way. OH YEAH! The way that station and Frank believe and want. I think the focus groups are really skewed!
After watching two of your "undecided" after the debate, I do not understand. I think you do not really choose undecideds. It seems that they may have voted for the President but only because they did not like Mr McCain. I do not believe that more tyhat 80% of undecideds decide to vote one way or the other ONLY from a debate. I believe people use other inputs including but not limited to the internet, newspapers, friends and family, and previous party affiliations. It is impossible to believe these middle aged seemingly intelligent adults would decide poof! I think they were leaning that way before being chosen.
Governor Romney wins second debate with Presient Obama, this according to a Frank Luntz group of Independent voters, many of which had previously voted for Obama, who are now switching their vote to Romney after watching the second debate. The group overwhelmingly says that Governor Romney won the debate. New Romney supporters gained in every debate. That's Romney 2, Obama ZERo!!!
Governor Romney won the second debate against President Obama and looked presidential, knowledgable about facts, figures and subjects, responded with compassion where needed, and was in man who was NOT going to be lied about or who was going to be pushed around by Obama. The next POTUS is: Mitt Romney
Score so far
it all comes down to .do we want more govt control which never works.look around the world!!i say give a businesman a chance.surely obama has been a big failure an i voted for him but anyone who looks at it real clear it does not take much to see where we are headed if something does not change.obama does not want to talk with congress his own advisors ,nobody an rommey was right in the debate when he told obama its your way or the highway.thats the worse form of leadership.obama just does not have any.
Obama looked weak because he is weak. He hides behind his teleprompter and will not take questions. He will not be interviewed by skeptics or people that want answers. He gives speeches with no chance to question him on anything. He is a dictator, not a leader.
The tide is turning... The wind is changing... There is now real HOPE that we can force the NObama Regime to CHANGE addresses in November!
Obama supporters are absolutely despondent! This morning, I drove by a neighbor's house and noticed his Obama yard sign taken down! It was there yesterday - and for the past month - but it was suddenly gone this morning. However, all of his other Democrat yard signs are still up. (I thought maybe the wind had blown it away or something, but then I saw the sign's new location... it's sitting against a wall in his garage!) After last night's debacle, he apparently is embarrassed to have an Obama sign in his yard.
finnally Romney took it to Obama and Obama could not hide Romney cleaned his clock I think we saw for the first time the new President Romney
Ugh, I hate the little hipster douche in the front row and the wimpy liberal dude (looks like a college professor) in the 2nd row left end and their 'Romney must provide specifics' baloney.
Hope & Change are not specifics either.
Couldn't they find any black or Hispanic people in Colorado to be part of the group?
One of the panelist had it right! Obama has been protected and spared the tough questions from the media and their political pundits for the last 4yrs. This I felt was in full display in this debate. He was ill advised, ill inform, and not ready for this debate.
Thank you senator John Kerry.
I didn't even have to drink more than two Sam Adams Octoberfest beers last night to get through the debate. Romney was Reaganesque! I liked it.
Hannity's face was epic. When Luntz told him that this group swung overwhelmingly in favor of Romney, he was so excited. I was as well. Obama's gonna get rolled!!!!! Let's win one for the gipper.
look for a completely different attitude from the next moderator. I'm not sure what 0's looks toward Poor Jim were indicating, 'help me', 'why you letting this happen', 'you were told how to handle this, what are you waiting for' or 'your the ref, why you letting him hit me', regardless, the 0 cadre will put the pressure on Candy Crowley to somehow keep Mitt from countering 0's lies with the truth. Good job by Mitt to get out of the box quick.
If the majority of Americans didn't see Obama as the empty suit/chair, after this debate debacle, there really is no hope--for this great country.
It was like watching a major league ball player debate a single A rookie. NO CONTEST.
...kind of repeating myself here , but I always knew Obama without teleprompter, confronted by facts and faced with the truth ALWAYS falls apart! Romney needs to make sure in debates that he answers the rebuttals very thoroughly - Obama can't stand mere mortals contradicting his 'facts'! Great night for conservatives and republicans!
These people sound very different than media and lib talking heads who say Obama was off his "game," for not busting Romney on lies and a lack of spcifics.
Imagine the difference for someone who did not see the debate: listening to these people vs listening to CNN.
Romney writes "Dad" down at the beginning of debates?
Disturbing to me as a conservative because his daddy didn't care for conservatives very much which also explains Romney's comments from his past speaking disdainfully about Reagan.
The 1964 Republican National Convention was full of drama thanks to the Romney family. The nominee was conservative, very conservative, and the Romney family led by George Romney, the governor of Michigan who ran for president was progressive. The Romney family was part of the Rockefeller arm of the Republican party--those country club types that are moderate and liberal.
You may remember George Romney led a walkout at the 1964 Republican National Convention as Barry Goldwater was nominated because of Goldwater's conservative beliefs. It turns out Mitt Romney was at the convention and probably part of that walkout since he was with his dad and considers his dad his political mentor.
New photos have surfaced of Mitt Romney at the 1964 Republican National Convention. As you will see, Romney was on the floor of the convention with his dad.
In this classic 1964 presidential ad, Lyndon Johnson, running for his first full term as president against Republican Barry Goldwater revived comments by George Romney that nominating Barry Goldwater was “suicidal destruction.”
When Romney turns into President bipartisan the RINOs and Dems will team up to bury conservatives and it'll be a case "be careful what you wish for because you just might get it" to conservatives. Oh well... I've been trying to warn conservatives the writing is on the wall but they won't see the writing on the wall until they're lined up against it.
Ummmmmmm. Romney's all we have, Dude. It looks as if all of us Conservatives will have work to do after he wins. That's part of this deal. Get rid of Obama and then participate in your government because We the People are going to have to get off our duffs and never allow an Obama to ever get near the WH and halls of Congress again. It's the new America. We are going to have to stay on this for the foreseeable future.
RINOs have you just where they want you don't they. There is only one 100% sure way we don't get a conservative in the WH in 2016 and possibly for a decade after that is to elect a RINO in 2012.
Its going to take a decade or more for this economy to recover and guess who'll get the blame when it don't. The writing is on the wall and the RINOs can't wait to throw conservatives under the bus. Oh well....when it happens don't complain when I say " I TOLD YOU SO". Like I said, some people will have to be lined up against the wall before they see the writing on the wall.
That's funny! When the House reelects the crybaby as Speaker that'll be your first clue there just isn't enough actual conservatives in the House just yet. Good luck with that.
The conservatives in the House will be thrown under the bus as Romney unites RINOs and Dems.
Disturbing? It's his freaking dad dude. You don't have to like Romney to understand that, so I have no clue why you don't get it.
You must really hate him or something to pick on the fact that he honors his father at the beginning of the debate.
We'll see if other conservatives are disturbed when President Bipartisan and the RINOs are teaming with Dems to bury conservatives.
Romney did say that his dad was his hero, and his dad had was not a good guy politically. This isn't to say that he might have been his hero for some other reasons.
I didn't call him an evil bastard either! i was pointing out that that was what you were painting him out to be on the stupid premise that Romney kept his dad in his mind during the debate!
You called him an evil bastard not me. I'd call him a chameleon, he either lied to the base during the primaries or he is lying now. Can't have it both ways and I suspect Mr bipartisan Romney and the RINOs are going to team up with Dems to throw conservatism under the bus. Its what RINOs do best and consistently. Dislike of conservatives is the only thing RINOs, the MSM and Dems all can agree on.
I'm not saying that, what i'm saying is that using Romney's love of his Father as your sole proof that Romney's an evil bastard is just plain stupid.
Its his DAD!!! You can disagree with your dad on most everything, but you can still love him! "facepalm"
I then pointed out why I found it disturbing. His daddy very much disliked conservatives, most especially Goldwater. You know who carried Goldwater's torch? Yeah that's right, Ronald Reagan.
What ever! We live in bizarro world so I guess under that scenario Romney is Reagan. SMH.
But you attacked him over writing his dad's name down. You said you found it disturbing.
Sorry, but if you just stuck to a substantive argument you'd have been much better off. No one is in fantasy land about Romney. We know we'll have to hold his feet to the fire.
But we also know he's a decent man who shouldn't be criticized for loving his own flesh and blood.
What? Let's see what you come up after you 'investigate' obama's dad. You know he was a commie, right? LOL
The close bonding between father and son, the love, respect and honor Mitt has for his dad. It is disturbing to me that this is your point of criticism. Are you a heartless non-human fatherless child?
The choice is between a RINO and a COMMUNIST. I'll take the RINO. Rockefeller Republican or not, we'll feel the ship turning 180 degrees from its present course.
Romney won, Romney won, ROMNEY WON!!! There is going to be a big-time bump for Romney now and if he can keep this up, he wins the election. And the Democrats know it.
