Politics: Confusing 2012 Poll
By: Eric Nixon

Although we know that President Obama is a shoe- in for the Democratic Party's Presidential candidate for 2012, at the moment we cannot say the same for the Republican Party's representative...
The confusing Republican party ballot choice remains empty as it is in 2012 and the elections are just 9 months away. As a young voter, tt is a worry factor as to who will take that place with what politcal agenda.  With over 153 delegates, Mitt Romney seems to be winning Republican favor. And if analytics hold true, why is there still uncertainty about his representation of the Republican Party? My thought are if they cannot pull their plans together and work as a unit,  we will be in in for a wild ride of disagreements and unresolved issues come next year. Aside from the Republican rodeo, President Obama still has unfinished business given his State of the Union Address earlier this month. We know that Rome was not built in a day, and our equitable system encourages prolonged change. However, is this all a ruse? And perhaps, once the Repblican solidify their candidate, they all come together with a complete agenda? You decide. Exercise your voting rights.
