    I voted Obama but it is very close and who knows. I wish folks would remember we were on the brink of a depression when he took over, they tend to expect miracles and it takes time to undo the mess he had to clean up.

    I personally think that Pres Obama will be around for another 4 years, simply because too many people are too lazy to even take the time to really look closely at Mr Romney and see what he is all about, whereas they do have "some" knowledge of our present president. Apathy may prove to be a bigger factor than it should.

    ETA: And who am I voting for??? It's not necessarily what it would seem from the above statement. Only me and my voting booth will know.

    I honestly don't care anymore. That probably sounds bad, actually yeah it does sound bad, because I should care, but personally, I'm constantly sickened by the morals of some people whenever election time comes around. I "never" get excited about it and probably never will. I really just can't wait for it to be over, personally.

    I posted this prediction on another forum:

    Pres Obama will narrowly win re-election.

    43 seats in Congress will change hands, but it will either be a wash or a slight gain for the Democrats, yielding another 2 years of fools like Chairman Issa in control of the house.

    As such, the hyper partisan atmosphere will continue, and absolutely nothing will change.

    My longer term prediction is that in 2014, 50-75% of the electorate will simply forget that the actually important offices (those of the Congress) are up for vote again, and 25% of the population will again decide who has the reins of power, yielding another 2 years of stagnation by a group of supposed leaders mroe concerned with party than country.

    I have already voted

    Michigan has 5 or 6 reasons for giving out absentee ballots - I fit in the age bracket. Personally, I don't think you should have to give a reason - why can't we just vote early? I heard on the radio today that Ohio residents have already cast over 800,000 votes.

    From what I have heard on the news, the polling has them very close. I don't think I would want to be the next president if I knew that half of the people who voted, didn't vote for me. Early voting started yesterday in Illinois. I wish I could vote on line instead of having to go to the polling place and queue up for a machine.
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!

    I don't even care any more. I've been on this earth through 40 years and a lot of presidents. My family has never been homeless, hopeless, or broke, no matter who the prez was or how much the American public complained about them.

    The point I was making above is that the President DOESN'T REALLY MATTER!

    Laws passed by Congress actually run the country.

    The amusing thing about Presidential elections is that we're arguing about what the drapes should be made out of while the roof is falling in due to a Congress who is more interested in delaying accountability for anything than coming up with solutions.

    There is NO leadership in Congress.

    Until there is. we're not solving anything.

    I so agree. I wonder if a multi-party system would encourage more cooperation.

    a close election

    I think the election will be close, but Mit Romney I think will emerge the winner. A lot of people in this country have lost faith in Obama.

    Whoever is elected President in November is most likely going to be appointing at least one new Supreme Court Justice, if not more.

    In other words, this time around anyway, it matters a great deal who will be elected President.

    Excellent point. SCOTUS affects our every day lives more than the President does.
