    I have lived in Michigan for the past 33 years. Before, 2008 I had not even heard of Mitt Romney. Why? He has not lived in this state since the 1960's. He was born and raised in Michigan. But he has lived in Mass. since the 1960's.

    Mr. Romney thinks being a business man makes you a better person for the
    Presidency, it is more than that, rating Mr Romney and President Obama I think President Obama will do a better job because Mr Romney can't be trusted...

      Being a business owner requires the person to balance it's budget, keep from borrowing money, pay your debts and employees before you can get paid. A commuity organizer takes from everyone and does not creat jobs.

    Shocker. Every Democratic candidate since 1992 has carried the state of Michigan.

      Shocker, Michigan has not selected the winner since 1996.

      Must revise. Only once since 1996 did Michigan select the winner.

    auto bailout beneficiary? GM and Chrysler maybe but the poor people of Michigan saw that bailout money go to China. Check Detroit for a pulse. None. Check food stamps and welfare rolls, yep, up. But Michigan is a lean to Obama so John King has to do a story about that. Maybe he is doing what media matters tells him to do like Eric Holder and the rest of the main stream media. SPIN, SPIN, SPIN it. Carter was leading Reagan by 8 points at the same time in his re-election campaign and lost in a landslide. Your poll means nothing.

    If you can not win your own home state, it means the party is over for Romney!
