Mitt Romney Polling Horribly Among Florida Women and Minorities

Categories: Politicks
What stands between Mitt Romney and victory in Florida? Apparently women and minority voters. Barack Obama has hefty advantages in those two demographics according to the latest Time/CNN poll, which shouldn't be too surprising considering his party has found itself embroiled in controversies in the past few years regarding women's reproductive health and immigration issues.

The latest Time/CNN poll finds Barack Obama 50 percent to Romney's 46 percent.

Among woman Obama leads 54 percent to just 42 percent. Among non-white voters, Obama has a 70 percent to 29 percent in Florida.

That number follows a national poll that shows Obama has a 65-26 percent lead among Hispanic voters.

Romney meanwhile has a lead among elderly voters, with 51 percent of 65+ voters going for him to 45 percent to Obama.

Overall, the Real Clear Politics average shows Obama with a 1 point lead. Of interest though is the fact that only two polls have shown Romney with an advantage: Rasumussen Reports (which generally is kinder to Republicans) and the relatively new polling firm Purple Strategies. No other major pollster has found Romney with a lead in Florida since May.

The New York Times' 538 meanwhile gives Romney the slight advantage with a 51 percent chance of winning to Obama's 49 percent.

According to the Heritage Foundation another blanket amnesty comparable to what took place in 1986, the cost would be phenomenal, at an outlay of $2.6 trillion dollars from the inception to the end of processing. This cost would be once again forced from the U.S. taxpayer by the IRS, to fund such a unfettered nightmare. Not only would it further encourage millions of more illegal aliens to try their luck at the borders, but it would be a silent fanfare across the world, that not only if you can smuggle a unborn child into the United States that the taxpaying public will subsidize you, but the child can collect the benefits of citizenship.  Only the insistence of the TEA PARTY, voting into law the BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP can bring this outrageous law to a resounding halt. Further to be included E-VERIFY or less known as THE LEGAL WORKFORCE ACT can finally bring to a halt BUSINESSES FROM USING CHEAP FOREIGN LABOR.  If not passed the future will be a terrible tax burden for Americans to bear, as we are already owned by foreign countries at a cost of $16 Trillion dollars.  Adding further to this incomprehensible amount would be an outrage of another $2.6 to provide another mass amnesty. This is certainly on the Socialist agenda of President Obama, if he hopes to win in November to enact a wide-ranging amnesty.   


 In 2007 pointing out that the big problem with mass legalization is that (a) most illegal aliens are low-skilled, poorly educated and therefore do not earn enough money to pay enough taxes to cover the government benefits they receive, and (b), amnesty would eventually make them eligible for the full array of welfare and medical benefits, Medicare, Medicade offered by local, state and federal governments. The Heritage found the cost of allowing illegal aliens to remain in the United States, and eventually to become citizens, would be $3.7 trillion. The only thing we would gain from this future would be overpopulation, further destruction of our infrastructure, sparse farmland, propagation of more apartments and housing, loss of habitat for wild creatures, food and energy shortages, more criminal aliens entering our country and even more poverty, which the populace will be committed to feed, house and medical. The real gainers will be businesses to lower wages, less benefits and an unsettling likelihood of civil unrest. The winners the wealthy gaining cheap labor and for the Democrats who overwhelming will turn this nation into an entitlement country for the freeloaders, the dead beats, parasite who sits around and doesn’t work, with  mooches who live off the rest of us--illegal alien and citizen alike?




The only way to stop this corruption mess is to adopt the rational reasoning and a strong observance of the Constitutional TEA PARTY plan.  Just stop and think about it, because if either the Democrat or Republican gains a full influence the winners will not be THE AMERICAN PEOPLE? The more political party incumbents kicked out and replaced with TEA PARTY LEADERSHIP the better chance of a better future for every legal resident.  ENOUGH GOOD AMERICAN PEOPLE CAN CRIPPLE THE USUAL, STAY AS IT IS, QUID PRO QUO. Stop the lobbyists who gain their influence through legal and illegal campaign contributions, free handouts and under the table cash. Neither party is trustworthy in my eyes, that’s why changed my political party from Democrat to Independent.    Now is the time to join one of thousands of branches of your local TEA PARTY, a quiet revolution to take the huge power and influence from the corrupt and return it to the taxpayer. Investigate the TEA PARTY yourself, and then decide your party? GO TO NumbersUSA, Judicial Watch and the TEA PARTY DOT ORG. The Democrats who will ignore non-voters who register and then the Republicans who use their influence to keep cheap labor from entering America. YOU’RE COUNTRY, YOUR VOTE NOW UNTIL NOVEMBER?

We Get It, GOP. You Hate Women. We Get It. Mike Huckabee’sOne of the things that’s troubling is that people see a Natalie Portman or some other Hollywood starlet who boasts of, ‘Hey look, you know, we’re having children, we’re not married, but we’re having these children, and they’re doing just fine. But there aren’t really a lot of single moms out there who are making millions of dollars  every year for being in a movie. And I think it gives a distorted image  that yes, not everybody hires nannies, and caretakers and nurses. Most single moms are very poor, uneducated, can’t get a job and if it weren’t  for government assistance, their kids would be starving to death and never have health care. And that’s the story that we’re not seeing, and it’s unfortunate that we glorify and glamorize the idea of out of children wedlock. Funder Friess: ‘Gals’ Used To Put Aspirin Between Their Knees For Contraception Republican Senator Glenn Grothman has introduced a bill in Wisconsin that would require the Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board to emphasize that non-marital parenthood is a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect Santorum In 1994: Single Moms Are ‘Simply Breeding More Criminals’ Dan Quayle spoke at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco. During his speech, he criticized the Murphy Brown character for "ignoring the importance of fathers by birthing a child alone"Quayle's remarks caused a  public discussion on family values, Congressman Todd Akin's incendiary comments about "legitimate" rapes not resulting in pregnancies Dr. Jack C. Willke, a physician whom abortion-rights opponents often reference when making the claim that pregnancies from rape are uncommon, served as a surrogate for Romney in his bid for the party's 2008 nomination. Ryan is a co-sponsor of a federal “Sanctity of Human Life Act,” which among other things, would prohibit many forms of birth control, and he has been a firm opponent of family planning programs. And both Romney and Ryan backed proposals to outlaw abortion ... even in cases of rape and incest
