The Eight States Romney Should Easily Flip To Beat Obama.Do You Live In One Of Them?

Posted on 05/16/2012 6:55:46 PM PDT by Reality_News

Based on what has happened in Wisconsin,can we safely hand it to Romney? Lets assume so.Now this leaves us with these seven states Romney should take in November.North Carolina,Virginia,Iowa,Michigan,Indiana,Ohio and either New Hampshire or Nevada.Now this is not including the crucial states of Florida and Pennsylvania.Two of the states where no one can expect an honest count.{aka Voter Fraud}.If you live in any of the eight states,can you tell us the real deal on what to expect on election night?

Damn right. I am voting for the most conservative candidate, and that is not Romney.

To be fair most people who are "No Romney No Way" were going to vote down ticket.

I hope you're right. But judging by the over the top tone of some of the more angry posters on this forum, one gets the definite impression that quite a few of them will just sit on their hands to teach the GOP a lesson or even vote for the Kenyan thug.

The proper response is to make the Democrat brand so toxic and the GOP brand so conservative that the RINOs feel like they have a real chance to take over the Democrat brand and drive the Marxists out to the fringes where they belong.

In JFK's time, the Democrats were about where most RINOs are now. We need to make it comfortable for them to go back home.

Hmm ~ Wisconsin is still playing catch up to Ohio, and they are playing catch up to Indiana.

You'll have to do better than that ~ Walker is good by your local standards, but he's not among the top stars in reforming Midwestern state governmental processes.

The time to be against Romney is ALL THE TIME. If he were running in the Democrat primaries he’d be a much better fit there. He’s simply not Republican enough.

The effective vote has some relationship to the basic proportions any particular group of potential voters has to the total population, but for political gamesmanship purposes you have to adjust everything by demonstrated prior voting patterns.

African American voters are a serious component of the Democrat party ~ not the majority, but at least 40% to 50% of the Democrat voters in districts or states where they are well organized.

They make a lot of noise in North Carolina but as Harvey Gant demonstrated, all the national Democrats can back you and you can still lose!

I’m still here because I still love the Free Republic of old and continue to hope it will return.

There is no place better than the Free Republic I used to know.

I believe sanity is gradually seeping in and that only a small but vocal and active cadre of Romney haters are poisoning the water.

But thanks for caring.

Your governor Mitch Daniels is a RINO. He got that way being an aid to Dick Luger, another RINO. He's better than the DEMS, but you need to get your head out of your a$$ if you think he has the conservative chops and resolve that Scott Walker has. Walker has been Governor for less than 18 months and Wisconsin, not Indiana, is the front in the war to reclaim the states for the people.

I don't reside there anymore ~ I vote in Virginia ~ and do so EARLY and OFTEN.

But Indiana now has RIGHT TO WORK and you guys are still duking it out with the public employee unions.

Wisconsin is a far cry from the future ~ and as far as Daniels getting a break with Lugar, so what? Daniels is his own man and has a balanced budget.

When you get to Right To Work give me a call.

A lot of people don’t particularly like Romney.

You’re only crazy if you ignore what Obama has done and will continue to do to this country.

You’re only crazy if you refuse to vote for Romney because you don’t like him and therefore are willing to condemn our country to four more years of a man who wants to destroy it and will probably do so if given another term.

I am confident FL will go for Romney though it may be close. I will be voting for ABO on November 6th. I am so sick of Bammy I will hold my nose, get drunk, or both at the same time and for Mitt who looks like the Republican nominee

Gov Rick Scott will doing his best to purge the voter rolls of legal immigrants who have been voting in FL elections. Most live in the Miami area and might be as many as 50-100 thousand. Maybe some illegals have been voting too....But you cannot vote in America if you are non-citizen who only holds a green card

Good way to put it. In a close swing state Freepers should think long and hard about the America hating Kenyan in the White House...... And however odious Romney might be, he is leagues better than the Kenyan plus open to influence from the Republican right wing and the Tea Party. We have zero influence over the Kenyan

On what basis do you think MI will go Red? I am not saying it won’t, haven’t seen any polling from there, but I think MI is one of the lesser states likely to flip.

I would be extremely shocked if IL went red.

Il, Mi and MN are 3 states I would think are the least likely to flip in the midwest.

I full expect IA, WI, OH and IN to go Red.

MI, IL and MN on the other hand.. I think if you see any of those states go red, then Obama’s support is so weak that even some solid blue new england states will also flip.

We will see how it all plays out.

Do You Live In One Of Them?

Heck no... I live in the People's Socialist Republik of Connecticut.

I have absolutely no doubt that CT will go completely for Obama, plus the idiot voters will send the usual five democRAT Congress critters back to DC, as well as a far-left union thug-loving democRAT Senator (Chris Murphy) who will replace Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT).

I never miss an election, and I vote straight Republican (there really aren't any "conservatives" here), but we're outnumbered. It sucks.

Someday - as soon as we are able - hubby and I are moving outta here...

Romney is not yet the nominee. He needs more delegates and he needs the approval of the nominating convention.

Until that time he can be spoken of as just another common politician trying to pull the wool over the public's eyes.

There are a number of possibilities here ~

(1) He could pull out using family problems as an excuse,

(2) He could be found to have been convicted of aggravated mopery in the recent past,

(3) He could have a heart attack (he's in that age range BTW),

(4) He could have a stroke ~ maybe just a small one like may have happened to McCain (about when he stopped campaigning),

(5) He could get smart and realize he has such a great chance of not winning it will be HIM who puts Obama into office for another term,

(6) ...... any number of other things.

He ain't the party nominee yet. He doesn't need to be the nominee. He has nothing to add to the national discourse.

Hey nutmeg....I was just watching CPTV and the live legislative meeting about HIX in CT.

I think if people really knew what happens in this state in midnight legislative sessions...they would NOT vote for Hussein or for any of Malloy’s [mini-me Hussein] sycophants.

People here are too busy figuring out how to stay afloat in this economy ...otherwise they’d be following you in mass evacuation.

I hope we will be surprised how this state will vote, aka the *Constitution Sate*. Meh.

NONE of that changes what you posted and it was rightly deleted. Were I you, I would not have started the conversation again, but if you insist.

“I have never maligned any vet.”

Calling a vet that doesn’t agree with you “a traitor to this country” is not only maligning, it was completely uncalled for and consistent with lib tactics.

After your post was deleted, I was fine with simply moving on and forgetting about it, but now I see that you want to try to rewrite history, another lib tactic.

While I am not specifically calling you a lib, I would think that a FReeper that has been here since 1997 would show a wee bit more brain power.

We have nothing more to discuss. Take your comments and shove them.....

Call another conservative vet on FR a traitor again....I will be all over you and your Romney inspired smut.

There are many folks on FR that feel a need to support Romney and while I disagree with them, I still respect many of them. I see them as wrong, but you and people like you, I see as drooling loons.

Remember way back in 2000 when George Bush had this very narrow margin with the Algore?

There were hundreds of ballots sent in by military personnel abroad and the Democrats had lawyers prowling Florida intimidating local voting registrars into not counting them.

The question was whether or not those envelopes were lawfully sent even if they had not been postmarked.

At that time USPS managed the part of the Motor Voter Law regarding how ballots sent by mail were to be handled ~ I was working in the part of the organization that had the jurisdiction to make the mailability decision that explained the USPS position regarding the need for postmarks on that mail.

As I recall no postmarks were needed since NONE of the ballots sent from APO FPO addresses required postage at all. And with no postage affixed there was no legal requirement to postmark the envelopes.

Florida law required a postmark. But Florida does not run USPS, nor did they manage the Motor Voter Law. They simply had no authority to require any of those ballots to be postmarked. It was clear the supremacy clause would overrule Florida's postmark law.

Eventually George Bush obtained favorable court rulings on other matters, but if they'd but sent in an appeal to our office (the right place for that appeal to go) I was prepared to sign my decision written the evening before that would have allowed all those absentee ballots to be counted ~ postmark or not.

So, there you have it ~ I had that rare chance to make someone President on a technicality ~ and that's how it would have happened.

The more astute analysts see the chance for a very close election coming up. There are two or three states that will be more closely divided than the others. I live in such a state ~ to wit, Virginia.

We are exceedingly closely divided. It could come down to just a handful of people ~ a single family perhaps, living in Northern Virginia ~ to make all the difference.

I was prepared once, I am prepared to carry that heavy burden again.

Clue ~ your boy Romney is at fault when he loses.

Your information was very interesting, until the end.

There is no need for statements like that, as Romney is not 'my boy'.

There were others I would have much preferred, but he is the one left standing so I will hold my nose and vote for him, because there is nothing I would rather see then than Obama removed from office.
