Mistrust polls? Try 7-Eleven or stars

Don't believe the odds experts sizing up Obama vs. Romney? Offbeat gauges track things like coffee cups and cookies, and some have uncanny records.

If you are someone who agrees that people should have to earn what they get, please give me a thumbs up.  If you are someone who agrees that other people should have to earn and then share with you, give me a thumbs down.

Please, no matter whom you support, don't post outrageous and unfair lies about your candidate's opponent.  It makes our beautiful country an ugly place.

The media is still stunned that Obama got his **** handed to him in the first debate. They don't understand how he doesn't measure up to the "image" they created for him. I mean, the media has sacrificed a lot for this guy..things like fairness, honest reporting, journalistic integrity and even openly refuse to cover any news that may harm him. I guess they think he owes them something. We saw the real Obama in that debate and there will be more to come. No teleprompters, no easy questions, no media protection or spin. Just the truth.

While FOX is reporting on how the State Dept. is lying and spinning and digging a deeper hole as they insult the American people with lie after lie...(even CNN is starting to report some real news) all I can find here on MSN is crap about Big Bird and other trivial non-news stories. MSN refuses to report ANYTHING that reflects the truth about Barack Obama and his administration...and this article??? WTF is THIS? MSN hits an all new low....when I thought they couldn't get any lower...they just refuse to report any news at all. They refused to cover the ATF scandal. They also refused to cover the Janet Napolitano scandal. Full campaign mode for Obama. Just waiting for Bill Ayers and Jerimiah Wright to join the staff here at MSN.

comforting that the media plays up how Obama is going to win hands down... I sure hope not but can we please get some media outlet to acknowledge that a large number of us want Mitt to win?

I'm voting for Romney, the last 4 years has been a disaster. I do not need a President apologizing for the Americans to some radical country. If Romney is President we shall all live long and prosper! I want the USA to be a wonderful place to live, not the doom of the USA like owebummer wants.

 I'm a independent who was on the fence until I saw the debate. Mitt Romney looked very knowledgeable, professional. The president look like I'd rather be somewhere else. Very poor performance.

 

Romney made up my mind, I'll vote for him.

When a democratic president is doing well they like to take credit...(Clinton gave no credit to Reagan) and when they do poorly well then it's always the last guys fault. (Obama always blames Bush) Democrats like to have it both ways. Cake and eat it too. Never seen such a childish president who won't take responsibility for any of his failures at all. It's really pathetic to state it mildly.

Here we go again--media bias at it's best---can't believe a word they say either--it's just plain propaganda as usual, because they have their hand in the governments pockets too.

What a bunch of crap.  No one I know who makes over $100k a year ever goes into a 7-11.  Why don;t you do a poll at an investment house like TD Ameritrade?  Then the result would be 85% for Romney.  Geez.  This is worse than the lamestream media rigging polls.  They at least trey to cover it up.

At this point anyone supporting Obama is essentially proving they are idiots, and proud of it. I voted for Carter, and still to this day am ashamed of it. But Obama on his best is still not as good as Carter was on his worst day.

 

What really is frightening is how the nation got deceived by this moronic, idiotic, pretender in the White House. Obama is not intelligent and has bullshi!!ed his way through his entire life.

 

Romney, as I have now discovered, is AMERICAN and Obama is NOT. I watched the movie 2016 about Obama and came to finally realize Obama is a DECEIT FILLED LIAR.

The democrats are getting crushed all of a sudden...( or has Romney been ahead longer than than we've been told?) .  SO they cry LIAR! LIAR!....because they are like children that have been caught doing something wrong.... Who is really lying to themselves? Democrats want Romney to give specifics on where the new revenue to cover the tax cuts will come from, yet Obama has NOTHING to offer in this discussion. CNN pundants even conceded this point. So cry liar liar all you can...scream until you are hoarse.....like whiny little brats. Just get ready to go job hunting because you may have to go back to work pretty soon!

One 7-11 in Yorktown, Virginia area only had the blue cups...the clerk said that was the complete delivery to this particular location.  She also mentioned they were told this location would not receive any red cups.  That would make the stats skewed then, right?

A 7-11 IN FORT MYERS FLORIDA WAS GIVING AWAY FREE COFFEE DURING A PROMOTION.

 THE CLERKS TOLD THE CUSTOMERS THAT THE BLUE CUPS WERE FOR THE FREE COFFEE NOT THE RED CUPS. THEY MUST WORK FOR ACORN!

[BRIEFING.COM] The stock market finished the Wednesday session on a modestly lower note, but it is worth mentioning today's retreat took place after six consecutive gains. The Dow Jones Industrial Average (-0.1%) and S&P 500 (-0.2%) settled not far below their flat lines, while the Nasdaq Composite (-0.8%) lagged throughout the session.

Equity indices started the day in the red, with the Nasdaq showing early weakness as large cap tech names and biotechnology weighed. The technology ... More
