    good choice putting a max of 300 on it. people would be putting 10k on obama, theres no way in hell either republican candidate is going to beat obama. just look at all the states that really matter, they are all turning in obamas favor. mitt rommney is loosing women by what 20 plus points?
    in recent national polls rommney has been down 54-42. its going to be an ass kicking.
    don't know about the senate and congress, it sads me that republicans have used lies and fear mongouring to get everyone scared over this health care package. when this health care reform really is a conservative idea. it still gives it to the open market health care companies, and it has the individual mandate which was a republican idea! every republican supported this idea in the 90s. they didn't like free riders. rommney said he supported the mandate, to get rid of the free riders and for everyone to support themselves.

    but now since its obama idea, its the government coming after you!

    i voted for McCain last year, biggest mistakes of my life. Can't support the republicans after watching their debates where they are cheering for people dying who don't have health coverage, and booing guy soldiers, for a party who wants to ban gay marriage, shut down planned parent hood, and go back to when no women can get abortions even with rape and incest.

    i don't support obama on numerous issues, but seeing that so many people support a guy like rick santorum makes me think america is doomed, and really makes me want to throw up.

    Wait. Watch. Listen.

    By the end of this month or early next the Republicans will have a nominee. The swing voters of the general electorate will finally start paying attention to the upcoming election. The polls(and odds) will have some dramatic swings imo. Personally I see this one similar to Bush v Gore. Hope the chad issue is resolved because it could come down to a Florida or Ohio. After July I doubt Obama will be priced higher than -150, could be a pick'em by election day.

    If the Republicans could come up with a legitimate candidate, I would say absolutely that Obama would be in deep shit. He should lose and shouldn't get a second term.

    With that being said, Romney? Come on.

    A) Don't say "a nominee." It's Romney.
    B) What kind of "swing voters" do you expect to vote for a guy as out of touch with reality as Romney?

    They are both stiffs. Just by the candidates the Republicans trotted out this go round it appears they are concentrating on 2016. Obama hasn't lived up to his promises when campaigning but is a country club, dockers wearing, grey poupon eating guy going to do any better? He makes Gore and Kerry look like the life of the party.

    If -165 on Obama is so good to the point that flea gamblers are going to put 10,000 betpoints on it, why don't you open up an account at Intrade and load up on Obama at a better price of -150?

    All of the people who say betting on Obama at -165 is like free money are die-hard liberal democrats who will be voting for him in November no matter what he says or what he does and their opinions regarding the chances Obama has to win the upcoming election are totally WORTHLESS.

    Obama's price has been stuck in the 58-62 range for several weeks on heavy volume and that price is the best indicator of what Obama's chances are to win the election.

    Obama's price of -150 is similar to an NFL team or an NBA team being a 3 point favorite. Obama is indeed favored to win but plenty of 3 point dogs win in the NFL.

    I think the most telling thing though is Romney's lack of likeability, which is huge, and I'm not really sure what he can do to make it better. Certainly going negative isn't going to help with that. People have had almost 4 years to make up their mind about Obama, but they are just now evaluating Romney, and it seems the more they hear the less they like. It is possible that the economy goes back into the gutter, which could swing some things, but the rhetoric of the campaign has really hurt Romney's chances, not helped them. He's completely turned off women voters, especially in the swing states that are going to decide the election as neverstoppers has said.

    Also remember that Obama's probable voting numbers are greater than 50% right now. Yes his actual approval rating is in the high 40%s but remember, that that includes people that don't approve of his job because he's not liberal enough(imagine the thought of that to a conservative) and those people will probably bite the bullet and vote for him if it looks like not doing so will cost him the election. People still remember Florida 2000.

    Shaudius,
    This upcoming election is not about Mitt Romney or any of the republican candidates. Its about Barack Obama.

    On election day November 2008, the voters made quite a statement electing Barack Obama in pretty much a landslide and handing congressional control back over to the democrats as well. Its fair to say the voters had a strong message to send and sent every republican they could home packing and I'm sure you would agree.

    Fast forward 2 short years, with the democrats in complete control and the voters did a complete 180 degree U-turn and gave the democratic party the THRASHING of their lives. This complete voter turnaround was caused by Barack Obama and the democratic party's decision to socialize our country's medical care system behind closed doors against the will of the American people and without a single republican vote of support.

    Socialized medicine has been on the table since the early 1960's and the issue has been hotly contested ever since. About 20 years ago (the last time democrats had full control), Hillary tried to shove socialized medicine through and the voters were so outraged, they handed back control of congress to the republicans for the first time in 50 years.

    If 1994 was a presidential election year, Bill Clinton would have known full well he would have gotten creamed due to what Hillary tried to do. However, knowing he had no other choice, he worked quite well with his now republican controlled congress and the country was doing very well heading into the 1996 election which we won in a landslide.

    Compare years 3 and 4 of the Clinton administration to that of Barack Obama and its easy to see that Obama failed where Clinton succeeded.

    The voters told the republican party to put the handcuffs on President Obama and the democrats and thats exactly what they have done.

    Shaudius, I don't know if you possess the ability to neutrally evaluate Barack Obama and the democratic party you so strongly support, but do your best to try right now:

    Imagine how irate you would be if President Bush successfully ended Medicare or Social Security with the help of a republican controlled congress and did so without a single vote of support from the democrats?

    What exactly has Barack Obama and the democratic party done since November 2010 when the democrats got thrashed so badly? Have they done anywhere near enough to overcome the huge voter resentment from 2 short years ago? I think not.

    While you probably feel differently, the vast majority of Americans oppose ObamaCare and as long as the republicans and Mitt Romney keep things focused on how Obama and the democrats shoved it through, I don't see how the democrats can possibly defend themselves. Ben Nelson and the "Cornhusker kickback", Mary Landrieu and a host of other bribes that were paid off by the democratic party to garner the last few votes needed to pass ObamaCare and its easy to see how badly the whole thing WREAKS.

Its fair to say the voters had a strong message to send and sent every republican they could home packing and I'm sure you would agree.

    Fast forward 2 short years, with the democrats in complete control and the voters did a complete 180 degree U-turn and gave the democratic party the THRASHING of their lives. This complete voter turnaround was caused by Barack Obama and the democratic party's decision to socialize our country's medical care system behind closed doors against the will of the American people and without a single republican vote of support.

    Socialized medicine has been on the table since the early 1960's and the issue has been hotly contested ever since. About 20 years ago (the last time democrats had full control), Hillary tried to shove socialized medicine through and the voters were so outraged, they handed back control of congress to the republicans for the first time in 50 years.

    If 1994 was a presidential election year, Bill Clinton would have known full well he would have gotten creamed due to what Hillary tried to do. However, knowing he had no other choice, he worked quite well with his now republican controlled congress and the country was doing very well heading into the 1996 election which we won in a landslide.

    Compare years 3 and 4 of the Clinton administration to that of Barack Obama and its easy to see that Obama failed where Clinton succeeded.

    The voters told the republican party to put the handcuffs on President Obama and the democrats and thats exactly what they have done.

    Shaudius, I don't know if you possess the ability to neutrally evaluate Barack Obama and the democratic party you so strongly support, but do your best to try right now:

    Imagine how irate you would be if President Bush successfully ended Medicare or Social Security with the help of a republican controlled congress and did so without a single vote of support from the democrats?

    What exactly has Barack Obama and the democratic party done since November 2010 when the democrats got thrashed so badly? Have they done anywhere near enough to overcome the huge voter resentment from 2 short years ago? I think not.

    While you probably feel differently, the vast majority of Americans oppose ObamaCare and as long as the republicans and Mitt Romney keep things focused on how Obama and the democrats shoved it through, I don't see how the democrats can possibly defend themselves. Ben Nelson and the "Cornhusker kickback", Mary Landrieu and a host of other bribes that were paid off by the democratic party to garner the last few votes needed to pass ObamaCare and its easy to see how badly the whole thing WREAKS.
    i usually agree with you but you are so wrong on this issue.I don't like obama care and am opposed tothem trying to take the 2nd admendment away. But romney is obama without the color. I won a thousand when mccain ran against obama. This will be even easier. Everytime romney is put on the spot he spits the bit, muttering like a drunken sailor.
