Polls show President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney heading into a very close Nov. 6 election, and both campaigns are ratcheting up campaign spending in response.
The Real Clear Politics average of national polls shows a virtual tie between the two candidates, with Obama holding a very narrow 47.1 percent to 46.9 percent lead over Romney.
Two recent polls show Obama's lead in Michigan settling at a comfortable margin for the president after briefly becoming close following the first presidential debate.
A Rasmussen Reports poll found Obama with a 52 percent to 45 percent lead among likely voters, while an EPIC-MRA poll conducted for the Detroit Free Press had Obama up 52 percent to 46 percent.
“I think the (second) debate had a role,” EPIC-MRA pollster Bernie Porn told the Free Press.
It's a simple concept really: separate church from state.
But as history has proven, some of the greatest concepts (communism, trickle-down economics, credit cards) fail in the real world because of human elements.
Most people are impacted and, dare I say in some cases, defined by their faith.
It turns out Democrats and Republicans can't even come together to figure out a place and time to disagree with each other.
At least that's the case with Sen.
It is vital that Michigan voters vote no on Proposal 1, a referendum on the dangerous emergency financial manager law passed by Gov.
While the deadline to register to vote is Tuesday for the November 2012 general election, not everyone is planning on casting a ballot.

When it comes to relations between Christians and Muslims, Pastor Hicham Chehab has had an extensive history on more than one side of the religious spectrum.
Now a pastor in the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, Chehab gave a presentation titled “Testimony to Jesus: From a Muslim Extremist to a Christ Follower” to an audience of approximately 100 at Christ the King Lutheran Chapel on Sunday night.
Raised a Muslim in Lebanon, Chehab was recruited by the extremist Muslim Brotherhood at the age of 13 and fought against Christian militias in the Lebanese Civil War in the 1970s. His brother was among the war’s casualties. While studying the Bible in a cultural studies college course, the message of peace and love in Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount caught his attention and led him to study the Bible further on his own, eventually leading him to become a Christian and get involved with Lutheran ministry.
“God has taken me by the scruff of the neck and has pushed me all the way,” Chehab said of his conversion experience. “And he is still pushing me today … Islamic culture is like a brick wall, but Jesus removes the first stone.”
Much of Chehab’s presentation consisted of a screening of a PBS documentary titled “The Road to 9/11,” which looked at the rise of radical Islam in the Middle East through the context of important cultural, religious and political events in the region.
All politicians lie. Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives alike.
At some point it would be nice if national news outlets, especially the major news networks, would acknowledge this.
One of the many roles of the news media is to keep an eye on those in power and call them out for abusing that power or lying to the American people.
Before Jan. 31, 2011, Zach Wahls was your ordinary college student.
However, it was on that day when Wahls became known across the country for his compelling speech about being raised by his two mothers.
The U.S. bi-party political system is about as American as apple pie.
The last president to be anything but a Democrat or a Republican was Millard Fillmore, a Whig whose time in office ended more than a decade before Abraham Lincoln’s assassination.
The current Senate is two percent independent, and the House enjoys 0 percent deviation from the traditional red and blue.
While the simplicity of the two-party system isn’t to be denied, its track record leaves room for doubt.
A new poll shows President Barack Obama leading presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney in Michigan by roughly five points.
Obama has support from 45.1 percent of Michigan residents, while Romney has support from 39.5 percent of the state's voters, according to a poll conducted by Glengariff Group Inc., a Chicago-based marketing research firm. Another 15.4 percent are undecided.
Obama won the state easily in 2008, beating Sen.
Women's roles in politics has grown over the past few decades, but progress has been slow moving.
Author Sarah Fitzgerald, who spoke Thursday to an audience of about 15 on Thursday in the Park Library Auditorium, discussed her new book, "Elly Peterson: Mother of Moderates." The book highlights the life of a woman whose life and work was a revolutionary force in Michigan politics during the 1960s.
Governor Snyder cut $1 billion from education during his first year in office.
That is $1 billion taken away from the future generation, the generation that has to take care of us when we are old.

While the Republican candidate for the 2012 presidential race has not been selected, predictions are already being made about the outcome of the November election.
