    I think Obama looks slightly more blessed than Romney at the moment.

    I think Obama will win because that's what the predictions (not polls) have been saying for the last 6+ months.

    The guys who make these forecasts are generally pretty accurate, (the bookies lose money when they
    are wrong) and predict the result correctly far more often than not.

    Of course they were not counting on a hurricane hitting the North-Eastern US just before the election, and I have
    no idea what that will do to the result (if anything), and also Obama did worse in the debates than possibly expected.

    However he's still forecast to be the most likely to win.



    However I do find it depressing that there are countless hours/days of coverage over months devoted to who is
    most likely to win and who is 'winning' at any given point rather than the policies and who 'should' win.

    I watch two tv programs, the big bang theory and Malcolm in the middle, this is the course of wisdom, one does not get exposed to endless news reports, politics and politicians.

    Does anyone here seriously think God is involved? He clearly says in the Bible that ALL governments will be destroyed in the future by his son, so why would he take sides with any of them?

    Paul said (Romans 13:1-4) of governments... "the existing authorities stand placed in their relative positions by God". Indeed, Paul asserts that governments and their authority are in accordance with "the arrangement of God". In fact, it was robbie who quoted this scripture recently.

    Any genuine religious person surely believes they are doing the
    right thing with respect to their god. This must extend to politics too.

    A mormon in the Whitehouse and 3 First Ladies ... that would be different!

    Romans 13: "Therefore he who opposes the authority has taken a stand against the arrangement of God". This means, presumably, that whoever wins the U.S. election is part of "the arrangement of God". Or do you believe Paul was incorrect?
