Most of us are hoping for a few "October Surprises" that will only decrease Obama's chances of re-election. But for now we can only hope for these two "September Surprises". 1)Obama's Polling/Approval numbers tank closer to forty per-cent. 2)Five or six more states go from "Lean Obama" to "Lean Romney". Now this would have the campaign in a tail-spin! Too many states going red and not enough time and money to travel to all of them. We already know that Illinois&Connecticut are shifting purple. But can you imagine if come mid/late September five/six more states come into play? We will all be laughing and waiting for MSNBC to spin this one!
Massachusetts? It can’t be. I resigned myself years ago that my presidential vote doesn’t mean a thing in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts, although I’m hoping to help keep Fauxcahontas out of the Senate!
Somebody’s either dreamin’ — or drunk.
Long shots, but you never know....
Obama is going to lose in a landslide. I am confident of that.
yep. no doubt.
me and my smartest political friend,
believed that even before the convention.
and it, gas prices, etc.,
all point to Obama losing even bigger.
i doubt he’ll carry more than 5 states.
well it was posted here that the suburbs of Illinois are favoring Romney and that Romney is slowly gaining in Connecticut. Massachusetts? well they did vote in Scott Brown and hopefully they will vote for their former leader(and keep in mind Hillary won Massachusetts)
From your keyboard to God’s ears!
Why would the average libtard in MA vote for Romney for governor and then abandon him for POTUS?
It is not heretical at all to suggest Romney could win MA.
Not that the other kooky states have a clue.
May God retroactively bestow the gift of extratemporal cognition on you and your smartest political friend, so you are speaking of an event that is already predestined.
Here in Maine, I’ve seen Romney lawn signs appear in front of people’s home’s like dandelions the last few days.
Also, Maine, like Nebraska, is only one of two states that split their Electoral College votes according to the vote in each congressional district. (Nebraska is the other state). Anything could happen this year.
Thanks for the encouraging report.
I don’t see IL, CA, HI, or DC going GOP. All else, it could happen.
Illinois never, I’ve lived here my whole life, they are dumb as a box of rocks & will vote for Bimbo! Plus you have to factor in the dead in Chicago that always vote RAT!
If we can overcome Clark County, then Nevada will do it.
Too much SEIU there.
Get real. This is going to be a fairly close election, The only states that uncertain for 0bama that he carried 4 years ago are OH, FL, NC, IN, VA and CO and Romney has to win them all. If 0bama just carries one of them he wins.
All this talk of NV, PA, MI, WI, HU being “in play” is a pipe dream, let alone IL, MA and CT. 0bama will win those states huge.
As much as I hate to say it, 0bama is still tremendously popular in many parts of the country and defeating him is going to be an overwhelming task. The election, unfortunately, very much favors 0bama.
I predict we’ll wake up on November 7 with Romney as president, but with every one of those states you mentioned in Obama’s column.
I think Nevada has a good chance of going for Romney. The rest, not at all.
It’d be nice but I think Nevada is a lost cause. On the other hand I don’t think it will matter. Looking at the states in play I really don’t see a scenario where Romney winds up with fewer than 273 electoral votes. I don’t think it’ll be an 2008 Obama level smackdown but barring a major blunder I just don’t see him losing.
forget about Illinois. I’ve sliced and diced it.
Obama could lose ever county except Cook and still take all the electors.
The only way Illinois is in play is if Cook County blacks jump off the Obamawagan.
aint gunna happen.
