POLL: Romney Leads In 11 Swing States
A brand new presidential tracking poll released today by Rasmussen Reports shows that in 11 swing states, Mitt Romney earned 49% support to Obama's 47%. One percent (1%) likes another candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided. The 11 key states thought to be swing states were won by President Obama in 2008 and thought to be competitive in 2012. The states collectively hold 146 Electoral College votes and include Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. "That 47% mark is the cutoff for Obama, especially if Romney is edging closer to 50%," said Sean commenting on the new polling data. "All of these undecided votes in most cases are going to go in overwhelming numbers to the challenger. These numbers are not good for Obama, especially since in 2008 the president won those states by a combined margin of 53% to 46%," added Sean. For the last Rasmussen polling info, please click here.
Group Warns of Foreign, Fraudulent Donors to Obama Campaign
Steve Bannon, Chairman and Peter Schweizer, Founder and President of the Government Accountability Institute joined Sean to expose what they believe to be fraudulent donations to the Obama administration. It's their opinion from their research that this has happened in 2008 and is happening again in this election. In a 109-page report published at their website CampaignFundingRisks.com, they allege the current online campaign contribution system lacks accountability and transparency, making it highly susceptible to foreign and fraudulent gifts. Bannon and Schweizer explained that the report's focus is President Obama's re-election campaign, which has collected historic sums from online fundraising, relying predominantly on donors who give in small-dollar increments. "Campaigns that aggressively raise money online are soliciting donations from people around the world - whether they intend to or not," said Schweizer.

Lehrer: 'Nobody's Blaming Me' For First Presidential Debate
Jim Lehrer, who moderated the first 2012 presidential debate last week, joined Sean on 'Hannity'. The left tried very hard to make Lehrer the scapegoat for Obama's pitiful performance, but for 67 million Americans who watched the debate, it was pretty obvious the blame laid squarely with the president himself. Lehrer told Sean that he initially shrugged most of the criticism. "The criticism is pretty much gone away now because people realize that spin doesn't work if everybody's seen the event. Sixty seven million people watched it. Sixty seven million other people reacted to it, saw excerpts to it and all of that. So, they know what they saw. And everybody is pretty well chilled out on this. And nobody is blaming me for it, blaming me for anything," the PBS news man explained. "The fact of the matter is, all I did was implement the format [for the debate] which is a wide open opportunity for the candidates to directly address [issues]."
