Negative Return: This occurs when a company or business has a financial loss or lackluster returns on an investment during a specific period of time. Some businesses report a negative return during their early years because of the amount of capital that initially goes into the business to get it off the ground. New businesses generally do not begin making a profit until after a few years of being established.
Fox News Online, August 23, 2012: Less than a week before the Republican convention begins, the race for the White House is a virtual tie. According to a Fox News poll of likely voters, the Mitt Romney-Paul Ryan ticket receives the backing of 45 percent, while the Barack Obama-Joe Biden ticket garners 44 percent.
The poll, released Thursday, is the first Fox has conducted among likely voters this year, which means an apples-to-apples comparison can’t be made to previous polls. Likely voters are eligible/registered voters who will most likely cast a ballot in this year’s presidential election.
Both tickets have already gained the support of many of their key voting blocs. Romney has the edge among white Evangelical Christians (70-18 percent), white voters (53-36 percent) [Moos Note: Hey, but aren’t ALL White Voters ‘Racist?’ what’s with the 53/46 split?], married voters (51-38 percent), men (48-40 percent) and seniors (50-41 percent).
Obama has the advantage among black voters (86-6 percent) [Moos Note: Nope, not going here… You know what I want to say.], women (48-42 percent), lower income households (53-35 percent), young voters (48-39 percent) and unmarried voters (55-34 percent).
Independents back Romney by 42-32 percent (one in four is undecided). Independents were vital to Obama’s 2008 victory, backing him over Republican John McCain by 52-44 percent (Fox News exit poll).
People intending to vote for Romney are:
- older Americans,
- married people with responsibilities,
- more Independents, and
- ‘just over’ 50% of White folks
The people voting for Obama are:
- the Poor [More of THEM than there used to be, aren’t there?],
- the young [a.k.a.: unemployed college graduates], and
- the unmarried
In conclusion, President Obama is running his campaign EXACTLY the way he’s been running the country for almost four years:
He’s spending more than he’s taking in
He’s playing fast and loose with the facts
He’s making up ‘stuff’ as he goes
And if you ever got the chance to ask him, “Who’s fault is it that your campaign is spending more than it’s raising?”
Well, you already know the answer…
