Not many comments lately.

I guess people are taking a break from politics now that Romney has the nomination wrapped up.

Interest should pick up again when Romney selects his VP.

And BTW, Bosman, what happened to the chat box?!?!?

At the risk of beating a dead horse, let me once again point out that these polls are excellent news for the Romney campaign, and terrible news for the Obama campaign.

As Dick Morris has repeatedly explained on Fox and talk radio, in presidential elections since 1960 virtually all of the undecided voters vote for the challenger(Romney), while almost none vote for the incumbent(Obama).

If that statistic holds up during this election cycle, Romney will defeat Obama by ~55%-45%, based on current poll numbers.

Romney's margin of victory could rise well into double digits if he makes a smart VP selection, performs well in the debates, and runs an aggressive television & radio ad campaign in every swing state.

The biggest wild card is the economy, where more & more economists are predicting a very sluggish recovery through the end of 2012, and 2 Federal Reserve economists recently predicted an imminent double-dip recession.

Romney was 100% correct when asked to offer advice to the president: "Start packing."
