The poll shows President Obama leading his GOP challenger, Mitt Romney, 48 percent to 45 percent among likely voters. The poll was conducted after Superstorm Sandy hit the U.S. East Coast. Pew also found that Romney supporters are more committed to voting than are Obama's supporters.

- You do realize that your statements regarding Romney's religion are a little bit hypocritical in regards to stating that you think that prospective presidential candidates shouldn't have freedom thereof, while claiming to support religious freedom? If that seems a little confusing, trust me, I tried. You really didn't give me much to work with there. I'm sure you've probably called him a "flip-flopper" at some point, too. Fortunately, you aren't at any risk of being a "flip-flopper", you apparently live in a universe where it is completely rational to hold two very conflicting views at once. Good luck with that.:)Nov 6, 2012
- It seems pretty easy to me. Don't think like everybody else. Tell the emperor he has no clothes on. (This really means not to pretend to think like everybody else, which is what we are CONDITIONED to do.) Learned behavior is not "human nature".Nov 6, 2012
- If you happen to agree with 99 other people about the how, why, what and when of telling the emperor he has no clothes on and your little group of 100 have a better chance of being heard and taken more serious than 100 separate individuals isn't there a good chance that some type of political group will form around that platform?
We are social creatures and we tend to cluster into groups. Some form of collective governance of the group will form. History is replete with a variety of examples.
Even if we outlaw political parties in this country, people will still find ways to organize around a candidate, an issue, or both and divert time and resources to promoting or opposing the same.
Current technology is only making it easier for us to connect with people who share our views, or at least we think they share our views.
How do you not think like at least one other person in a world filled with so many people? Odds are someone else is reaching the same conclusions you are about some political issue or candidate.
Will you change your viewpoint just because it isn't unique, or will force others to change theirs so you can be unique?Nov 6, 2012
- A disgrace to DEMOCRACY! In Philly GOP officials booted, Black Panthers return -- and Obama on mural at polling site? http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/11/06/judge-issuing-order-to-reinstate-booted-philadelphia-election-officials/Nov 6, 2012
- I don't think we should make political parties illegal. What we should do end the official U.S. Government recognisition of the two major ones. I will say this, though, a lot of people align with parties because they are too lazy to seek the facts themselves. We are not social creatures to the extent that we lack individuality, stupid people are just cattle.Nov 8, 2012
