Why the Sudden Swing in the Polls to Romney?
A lot of voters have not been following the presidential election. As the election nears, more people are beginning to pay attention. Those of you who read articles on this site know all the issues. A majority of American voters don’t. Now that they’re paying attention, they need a way to make their decision.
The so-called undecided voters are shifting to Romney because they see other people shifting to Romney. They now believe it’s OK to vote against President Obama and not be thought of as a racist. They feel comfortable following the pack.
A similar thing is happening in Hollywood. First only a few brave conservatives stepped out of the political closet. These were big-name actors who had standing in Hollywood and were box office favorites, that is, their movies made money. Jon Voight, Kelsey Grammer, and Gary Sinise are three recognizable names. They’re making it easier for younger conservatives to step forward. Stacey Dash is one recent example.
There’s a report that Jews are moving to Romney.
Despite losing some ground to Obama in the TIPP/IBD’s Daily tracking poll of Oct. 11, the poll of likely voters shows a dramatic, unprecedented shift among likely Jewish voters, with Romney overtaking the lead from President Obama for the first time. According to the 5 day polling sample, taken after the Denver debate, Mitt Romney garners support from 44 percent to Obama’s 40 percent.
Another report concludes that while “Romney may not beat Reagan’s share of the Jewish vote in the actual election, but right now he’s polling ahead of him. And often ahead of every Republican in the last 100 years.”
There’s ideological and political safety in numbers.
For the longest time we were being told by the media that there was a gender gap. Not anymore. Women are shifting to the Romney camp.
The Democrats have pushed the war on women theme too hard and too long. This works for the base that the Dems already have, but most American women aren’t the least bit interested in free birth control.
Then there are those women who believe that birth control is fine as long as the person wanting it pays for it. I’ve heard something like the following from several women.
“If you want to use birth control, then you pay for it. Don’t bring the government in and force me to pay for your birth control. If you want to open your legs to any man who puts the moves on you, then pay for your own contraception. If you get pregnant, I shouldn’t be forced to pay for your abortion. Abortion is the taking of a human life. You’ll have to stand before God on that one. Don’t make me complicit in your violation of the Sixth Commandment.”
Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), a liberal masquerading as a Republican, accused people who don’t want their tax dollars to pay for someone else’s birth control and abortions as waging a war on women. “It makes no sense to make this attack on women,” she said on a Public Radio station. “If you don’t feel this is an attack, you need to go home and talk to your wife and your daughters.”
I spoke with my wife, and she said abortion is a war on pre-born girls and boys, about 1.5 million each year. She also wanted to know why she was being taxed to pay for someone else’s birth control. It’s that simple.
Obama said Romney “feels more comfortable having politicians in Washington decide the healthcare choices that women are making.” I’ve never heard Romney say anything like this. In point of fact, it’s Washington that’s making our healthcare choices. The so-called Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is government inspired, government written, and government ruled on. It’s a healthcare mandate with a compulsory tax to pay for it.
People are tired listening to Obama’s blame shifting on the economy and his lame attempts to fix the economy by throwing their money at companies that only squander it. They’re fed up with the notion that if they disagree with an Obama policy, they are by definition a racist. They don’t like being lied to. Everybody knows that a never-seen film was NOT the reason our embassies were attacked and four Americans died.
