Republican conventions start today.

Remember, the three main events influencing voter decision in American elections are the VP choice, conventions and the debates.

FL went from leaning Dem to leaning Rep overnight. It has only now gone to neutral. Seems more like the trend is continuing in Romney's favor, despite the bounce.

Last time Obama conned the naive, ignorant life-noobs. This time he's trying to con women, but they're not as naive and ignorant as Democrats think.

Control of the Senate: 47 : 50 (3 ties)

The lead had been going the other way.

Obama is killing Romney (332 to 206)

The presidential race is all but over.

That will be hilarious if Obama gets re-elected but Republicans have the majority in both houses of Congress. By the end of eight years, Obama's approval ratings will be about 30%.

Obama's approval ratings have been steadily improving since April.

False. Look at the graph.. In fact, just today, he slipped back into negative territory, with more people disapproving than approving.

electoral-vote.com doesn't to be fair anymore. The dude is coming up with figures to show that the Democrats are leading. He's brought some new tool.
