Skip to comments.Rove: Obama Holds 271 Electoral Votes
Posted on 08/13/2012 8:13:21 PM PDT by goodn'mad
Fox News. Between Joe Trippi and Carl Rove. Rove states that Obama holds 271 electoral votes but Romney holds only 182 electoral votes. "If the election were held today, Obama would win."
rove’s effort to stay relevant
Rove is an idiot, probably upset that his butt buddy Jeb Bush didnt get the VP slot. Some in the GOP Establishment would love Obama to win, it would suit their agenda
Rove loves to get jobs arguing on the margins!
But then again that’s his operating style vis-a-vie FL 2000.
He’s using polls that are questionable. He lists his sources on his website.
I posted something about it earlier.
Rove is an idiot and the election isn’t being held today so his comments are irrelevant.
I really thInk people need to get ready for Obama winning.
And yet we're supposed to believe that Osama Obama would stroll to victory if the election was held tomorrow?
IIRC, 99 of the votes Obama “has” are leaners, not solid.
Thanks for the links. I check ‘em out.
Is the fix in?... Will Romney take a “dive”?..
You know take a dive using Ryan as cover..
like Juan Mclaim did with Palin..?
Who cares if he is wrong. We should be fighting as if Obama has 300+ electoral votes even if he does not.
What are we going to do if he were to say Romney had 271... go on a cruise between now and election day?
Rove is not to be trusted, hasn't been trustworthy since his "new tone policy" and "we must give amnesty so the hispanics will like us" stupidity.
He's like Grima Wormtongue (from Lord of the Rings).
Don’t see it happening. I think Obama is in a lot of trouble judging by how many ‘polls’ the democrats are putting out there. I would even be so bold to say that if an Honest pollster polled New Jersey R&R would be within 2 or 3 percentage points.
Something to think about here is that the GOP ran through this past primary season with the most marginal, half-@ssed group of presidential candidates in recent memory. I mean, how could Rick Santorum be a credible candidate when he wouldn't even carry his own state in a general election? And Newt Gingrich? That jack@ss wasn't even in politics for more than a decade before crawling out from under a rock somewhere to dress up as a "Republican Presidential Candidate" for an early Halloween season. These guys all stayed in the race as long as they could because they knew damn well that even a bag of dog crap would stand a pretty decent chance of winning against Obama in November.
The game has not really even started yet. Everyone is still pounding the beach from their battleships to soften up their opponent before the marines hit the beach.
Rove is an irrelevant piece of leftist RINO shit that just needs to go away. Rove is one of those responsible for Obama being president. FU Karl with a K Rove...
Agreed. We don’t need to shoot Rove. His analysis at this moment is likely very accurate.
But the country hasn’t engaged nor gotten to know Romney and Ryan.
Dukakis held a 17 point lead over Bush Sr. after the D convention in August of 1988.
Support for a specific candidate by an independent voter at this moment can be a mile wide but an inch deep. The polls will bounce. I think Romney will hold a lead in some national polls by next week based on Ryan enthusiasm.
