Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Pew: Romney 49, Obama 45

After showing President Obama with an 8-point lead in September, the Pew Research Center now finds a deadocked presidential race among registered voters -- and a 4-point Romney lead among those most likely to vote:

Coming out of the debate, Mitt Romney’s personal image has improved. His favorable rating has hit 50% among registered voters for the first time in Pew Research Center surveys and has risen five points since September. At the same time, Obama’s personal favorability rating has fallen from 55% to 49%.

In the presidential horserace, Romney has made sizable gains over the past month among women voters, white non-Hispanics and those younger than 50. Currently, women are evenly divided (47% Obama, 47% Romney). Last month, Obama led Romney by 18 points (56% to 38%) among women likely voters. …

Romney now ties Obama in being regarded as a strong leader and runs virtually even with the president in willingness to work with leaders of the other party. And by a 47% to 40% margin, voters pick Romney as the candidate who has new ideas.

Conversely, Obama continues hold leads as the candidate who connects well with ordinary people and takes consistent positions on issues. And Obama leads by 10 points (49% to 39%) as the candidate who takes more moderate positions on issues.

We've warned on a number of occasions against putting too much stock in surveys showing huge swings in a 2012 race that's been mostly stable. The Pew poll falls into that category: Obama led by 19 points last month among registered female voters, and there's been a 12-point swing among likely voters in the space of a few weeks.


But a national, prime time debate is also one of the few occasions when you could plausibly see a major shift in the fundamentals of the campaign, and even if you're inclined to take the magnitude of change here with a grain of salt, the trend in the scattered national polling since the debate has tended to show real improvement for Romney.

GALLUP: Obama Bouncing Back Already To 5-Point Lead

President Barack Obama moved back to a 5-point lead over Mitt Romney, halting the Republican nominee's post-debate momentum. Obama now leads Romney 50 percent to 45 percent in Gallup's daily tracking poll.
Romney had seen a big three-day post-debate move in the Gallup daily tracking poll, but today's results signal that his debate bump is beginning to level off.

Obama seemed to be literally asleep at the wheel during the debate. Political views, and ideology aside, I think it is a well earned bump for Romney based on the debate performance alone.

It was not Pretty

No matter which side you may be on Obamas Debate performance was not pretty.

He looked very out of place as a leader.

A commander in Chief must deal with many crazy and yet very clever people out there in the world who are pushing for his attention and influence and Obama did not demonstrate the depth needed to do that.

@RumsfeldOffice Terrific, comprehensive speech by Gov. Romney at VMI. He knows America's role in the world should be as a leader not as a spectator.

ROMNEY - ALL IN FOR THE 1%

Prompted by what they call regulatory attacks on their business and personal attacks on their character, executives and employees of Goldman Sachs have largely abandoned Mr. Obama and are now the top sources of money to presidential candidate Mitt Romney and the Republican Party.
