Anthony Samad: When Republicans win, they expect the Democrats to cooperate and do the people’s business. When they lose, they don’t cooperate and blame the Democrats for not doing they people’s business. It’s insane.
Randy Shaw: Obama lost a lot of volunteer enthusiasm after October 3. While he regained some of it after the second debate, the real resurgence did not occur until Obama’s commanding performance this week.
Tina Dupuy: As far as Romney goes, I really don’t know who this dude is: I’ve watched dozens of speeches, read hundreds of articles and sat through 23 national debates and I can’t tell you where Romney stands on any issue.
Matt Barretto: Accurately polling the Latino electorate is important not just to get a correct portrait of Latino voters, but because they are such a large part of the overall electorate.
Michael Sigman: Mitt was so amped-up during certain segments of the Hofstra debate, it made me wonder whether the Mormon teetotaler had somehow ingested way too much caffeine.
Victoria Defrancesco Soto: What is truly exceptional about Florida is that its Latino population is just as split; if there is one state where the balance of the presidency hangs on Latinos it is Florida.
John Peeler: A middle-aged, middle-income white voter from a town that is not quite urban but really not rural either, Squishy is unemployed since being laid off two years ago when his employer, Central Squeegee Co., Inc., moved its manufacturing operations to Squalidia.
John Peeler: Outside the South, Obama is ahead in the Northeast Rust Belt, and Far West, and leads narrowly in most swing states.
Charley James: The nonsense Romney spouts as factual would be breathtaking if it was not so scary and he weren’t running for president.
Lisa Garcia-Bedolla: As I’ve learned more about Mitt Romney’s career, it strikes me that the experience with the dog is emblematic of his entire professional trajectory – he will do anything to get to where he wants to go. +++++
Charley James: “Romney Was Lying”, said Ginger a woman who considers herself a low information voter who pays no attention to politics until there’s an election.
Dick Price: Mitt Romney – because he has no values beyond promoting his own and Lady Romney’s welfare – he’ll take the NRA’s money and oppose any sort of reasonable gun regulation. Which makes him forever the Gun Lobby’s Mitch.
Steve Hochstadt: I think the many untruthful claims that Romney made were the most notable feature of this debate, because he got called out on most of them.
