It is scary to me that it is this close. I support Obama because the Republican party is the batshit crazy party. So even if Romney is sane and moderate in his former life, he had to adopt their batshit crazy platforms and embrace them to get his party's support.

So in this case, ever since Bush and the 9/11 switch over of the GOP into the crazy party I can't ever vote for a Republican even if the Democrat sucks. At least the Democrats tend to be sane and reality based.

re: #1 Destro

Not just close but couple that with voter caging and suppression, that means Dems have to get at least 20% more bodies to the polls.

Its this close thanks to the Congressional GOP's obstructionism in dealing with the economy. We'll see how the race shakes out after the conventions, and who does a better job of defining Romney.

The GOP has been batshit crazy ever since the rise of El Rushbo and his talk radio clones, and then later Fox "News." They've only gotten crazier as time has gone on, and they have no incentive to do so as long as they can keep winning elections, even if the White House isn't one of them.

The strange thing about this election is that while the national polls are indeed very close, Obama has consistently held a comfortable lead in the electoral college. In fact, that lead has widened in recent weeks as Romney endured a horrendous July. I would suspect that if Romney can't close the gap in any meaningful way after the GOP convention, the party will pretty much bail on him to focus on winning the Senate, and maintaining an advantage in the House. It's pretty much what they did in '96 when Bob Dole wasn't able to excite anyone, and while Clinton won easily, his coattails were pretty short as the Dems only made single digit gains in the House.
