  2. You may change your opinion as many times as you like. Please strike out previous opinions.
  3. If you are NOT a US Citizen, please vote in the second section below (cleverly labeled as "Non US Citizens")
  4. If you truly can't grasp the function of the "talk" page and have to insert comments, please start with a #: so you don't screw up the numbering.

  13. CD-ROMney is very vulnerable as a candidate, more so than I think the media want to admit. While Obama can no longer be considered a crusader of hope and change, he will prevail as a result of peoples' greater suspicions of the Romney machine. Whether CONservatives wish to admit it or not, his wheelings and dealings over at Bain will hurt him especially, given the current state of the economy.

    Given your track record, Rob, this is great news for the Obama campaign. rpeh •TCE 11:54, 16 July 2012 (UTC)
    Look at today's Retail Sales report, down for three straight months. This at a time gas pump prices also are falling. Normally, rising gas prices cut into retail sales and falling gas prices are a boon to consumer spending. Why is this not true now? Fear. Lack of confidence. Hoarding for tomorrow. Right track/Wrong track. Does not look good for Obama. nobsAn armed society is a polite society 18:45, 16 July 2012 (UTC)

  5. AD, you done broke the numbering. Vulpius (talk) 02:03, 16 July 2012 (UTC)
    • I break all kinds of shit. I'm a numbering-breaking son of a bitch, born in a hurricane with a jacknife in one hand and a stack of pancakes inexplicably in the other. Hector Cjara (the ruthless dictator who wiped out five hundred million people during 1983's Continental War) heard me coming and was so scared he actually fled into nonexistence, rewriting history in a cascade effect that resulted in the invention of the Internet and a mysterious worldwide increase in breast size. Numbering ain't nothing with what I break just by walking down the street, as windows and walls shy away from my fearsome glance and crumble into fragments.--ADtalkModerator 05:47, 16 July 2012 (UTC)

  9. I hope he does, at least. Although if Americans legitimately elect Romney, they deserve what they get. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 11:24, 16 July 2012 (UTC)

Non-US Citizens who think Romney will win[edit]

  1. I hope I'm wrong, but given the US's lurch to the looney right and there's no sign of people realising what a mistake they've made, I think Romney will sneak in. Not only that, but I think the party formally known as the Republican Party will take the House and Senate too. The first step in solving a problem is knowing there is one - and the US hasn't realised their opposition party has gone insane. However, I will be very happy to be proven wrong. The US was not ready for a black president, one can hope the rabid right doesn't want a Mormon president. PsyGremlinTal! 07:48, 16 July 2012 (UTC)
  2. Just being pessimistic--Th. Bernhard (talk) 17:44, 16 July 2012 (UTC)
  3. As much as I would like Obama to win in a landslide, my trust in the American electorate to chose the less wrong option is non-existent. --Rutherford (talk) 18:04, 16 July 2012 (UTC)

Non-US Citizens who don't know who will win[edit]

How can anyone tell? Proxima Centauri (talk) 16:08, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

We can't, which is why the section titles say think instead of know. "Think" is such a useful word, isn't it? Sophiebecause liberals 16:23, 17 July 2012 (UTC)


  1. As a non-US Citizen, it all depends on Europe. Osaka Sun (talk) 17:27, 16 July 2012 (UTC)
    I don't think it's likely that Europe will turn markedly for the worse before the November. And if the ESM works out, or a banking union is put in place, the problem will be postponed for a couple years at least. Blue Talk 20:59, 16 July 2012 (UTC)
