This man has been such a bad president ..how is this race even close?
It’s close because he’s an incumbent and th media loves him.
I may be proven wrong, but I don’t think this is anything like a 1% race. Polls that are based on democrats having the same enthusiasm they had in 2008, when the nation voted D+ 2.5%, don’t pass the smell test. If anything, I thing the mood is less positive for democrats than it was in 2004, when the nation voted R +1.5.
But all the polls assume democrats are as fired up to vote for Obama as they were in 2008. I think we are seeing a fundamental flaw in how polls are conducted, with Republicans refusing to participate in polling.
I hang up immediately on ANY call involving politics. ANY. I have no interest in being polled anywhere but the polling booth. I view the media as the enemy and I don’t want to tell them anything. And I think a lot of Republicans are like me.
I think the election will force pollsters to rethink how they collect data. But we’ll see if I’m right in a few days. I expect Romney to win by a 53/47 margin - too close for the unmitigated disaster that is Obama, but Romney was RIGHT about the 47% who want to live sucking the government teat.

Look at it this way. Despite the best efforts of the liberal ‘Political-Entertainment-Media-Academic’ complex, we are still winning. Don’t fret. Also, can you remember any major political race in which the final numbers for the Republican weren’t more than what the polls had predicted?
