I don’t see how Sandy would favor the incumbent. From what I’m hearing, the recovery effort has been a total SNAFU.
The SNAFU in NY and NJ is not going to alter those races and both states are pretty much in obozo’s camp. With the media not showing a whole lot of the bad verses the good they manufacture about His Excellency’s visit, it could have a positive affect among indy’s, not as large a group now as we are very close to the election and anyone who can be swayed now was probably going that way anyway, so it could give Bozo a few points. Given the pre sandy Gallop was 7 for Romney, give him 2-3 decline, he still wins going away. Raz confirms the 2 point shift in his latest poll too but significantly, it has Romney ahead by a few tenths percentage. It is going to be close, Romney should win with 275 or so EVs IMO. Hard to get the incompetent incombent out unless it was a Carter who was depantsed on national TV every night by his own ineptness.
Also Sandy too close to the election to matter much. As it goes on, it will be a negative for incumbents. Challengers have no downside in this.
Cold, some homeless, gas hungry, food hungry, no job to go to, no place to be but remember Obama came there for an hour and a half and said he was gonna fix all dat!.....
Nope, I think he’s gonna lose some big time supporters. They are getting nasty....

It certainly has been. I live on Long Island and without a downed tree in sight, I am in the fifth day of not having power. Plus, today I had to wait on line for more than 2 1/2 hours for a tank of gas. My wife waited on another line for two hours and then was told, “Sorry, we’re out.”
We can barely find food, and we can’t keep it if we find it. LIPA, run by crooked Democrats, (or is that a redundancy?), is working as slow as a snail in December. We actually have MORE houses without power this afternoon than we did last night.
As a homeowner of Nassau County, I pay the property taxes AND electricity rates that are the HIGHEST in the country, so needless to say, I’m pretty pissed. Enough is enough.
I don’t see how it helps in the Sandy-ravaged states because they’re blue already any way. I’m guessing that it’s a matter of people seeing him on TV being presidential and “caring” — and then not reading any followup stories about how bad it’s going.
