As America enters the final stretch of the race to the White House, the chances of the incumbent President Barack Obama continues to brighten much to the discomfort of his rival Mitt Romney.

This has been reported of dated the 29th of September 2012.

To say that the situation is grim would be an understatement because from the look of things and with a sort of helplessness in the air it is reported Republican congressional candidates are gradually distancing themselves from their party's White House ticket – the barrage of ads from the Democrats is hurting their prospects.

These ads are linking them to Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan.

Therefore, on a two-day visit to Florida, Joe Biden, the vice-president took a swipe at the Republicans and sent out a warning to the elderly that a Republican win would translate into new taxes on their social security benefits.

Interestingly, there are a large percentage of elderly voters in the three states of Florida, Ohio and Virginia and, in a recent poll, it was revealed that the insistence on the Medicare proposed by the Romney-Ryan camp has alienated the voters and they have moved away and gone towards the Obama camp. It is quite obvious that the managers of the Republicans have not done proper homework and Romney-Ryan would have to pay the price.

Statistically speaking – 65% of those polled in Florida felt Medicare should remain as it is.

The debatesthe first debate would be on 3rd October in Denver, Colo., and would focus on domestic policy. Next would be the vice presidential debate on Oct. 11 between Republican running mate Paul Ryan and Vice President Joe Biden. These would be followed by the 2nd Presidential debate on 16th of October in Hempstead where many issues would be debated.

The final debate which would concentrate on foreign policy would be held on 22nd of October ia Boca Raton, Florida.

The Turning Point – with his back to the wall, Mitt Romney has to now look forward to the face-to-face debate with Barack Obama on 3rd of October 2012 in Denver – the agenda would be taxation, healthcare and, that damaging MoJo video would also come up – the video in which Romney admitted that he is not bother bout the 47% of Americans who do not pay taxes.

It is expected to be a debate in which billions all across not only the USA but the whole world would be waiting to listen to what transpires and who fields whose question best.

Although they do not spell it out in so many words, nearly all political analysts appear to agree on the point that Mitt Romney has been a wrong choice and, unless he is able to recover lost ground in the next week or so, it would mean disappointment for his party.
