Posted on 10/26/2012 4:28:18 PM PDT by not romney
If you only listen to Fox News and Rush Limbaugh you believe Romney is winning. He's not, he's losing. Both Real Clear Politics and Intrade have Obama with 281 electoral votes with 11 days til the election. You only need 270 to win. Intrade predicted every state correctly in 2004 and had two states reversed in 2008.
Move your cursor over each state "click here" to see the candidates chance of winning. Notice Virginia has moved back toward Obama and has more chance of going for Obama than Ohio does of going for Romney. There have been a lot of one-off polls showing Pennsylvania and Michigan in play, however Intrade shows otherwise. Colorado is a toss up and currently leans Obama. Iowa and New Hampshire are trending Obama, while Wisconsin and Nevada are currently dark blue.
This is a far different picture from the one being painted by Sean Hannity, Dick Morris and Karl Rove. So then why is Romney pulling his punches on Benghazi? It's becoming clearer every day Obama refused to send in a rescue mission because he's haunted by the Jimmy Carter failed rescue attempt back in 1980.
I believe the Benghazi scandal has the potential of becoming one of the biggest in U.S. history. So again, why is Romney sitting with his arms folded? Because he's just as risk averse as Obama. He's terrified the media will again accuse him of politicizing the death of these four men. What, and Obama is not playing politics by withholding virtually all information, for nearly two months, until after the election?
Forget about the politics for a moment, only Romney has a megaphone large enough to force the media to get off their butts. The families deserve the truth and the American people deserve the truth. Once the truth comes out, the political consequences for Obama will be well deserved. If people knew Obama did nothing for seven hours while four of our men were being murdered, the election would be over. The problem is most people don't know. Now imagine how you'll feel on Nov. 7th if Romney loses because he played it safe by letting Obama off the hook on Benghazi.
that intrade map is WAY OFF as far as Pennsylvania...
Yeah, not need to read any further. Bull*!!!. I remember seeing with my own eyes, Kerry up to 90% on Intrade on election day. Only after actual election returns started coming in did Intrade crash and put Bush ahead.
Nixon played it safe in 1968 and managed to squeak through. Romney must be trying the same gambit, might not work, for 69 million may still believe in Obama.
The answer is the polls don’t work anymore. The response levels are so low that the narrow interests of special interests are over-represented.
Me thinks someone is trying to lure Romney into a trap. Romney is doing just fine.
FWIW, it’s not just the Intrade market predicting Obama to win it, but also others:
A potential caveat is I’m sure many Intrade bettors also make plays at these other sites as well.
Food for thought.

This guy is a CLASSIC “Concern Troll”: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2112236/posts AND http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2594943/posts GO AWAY TROLL!
If Romney’s playing it safe, it is because he is way ahead.
They are spending a huge amount of money on ads in the remaining close states and still visiting ones where he has a lead to keep them won. They are doing the right things, as far as I see it.
” not Romney “ is your screen name ?
LOL....no agenda here....
Given your screen name I presume you are hoping Romney continues to play it safe and loses.
This guy has the states all wrong. The only necessary state yet to be decisive for Romney is Ohio. Colorado is won, Iowa is likely to go our way, and Wisconsin is tied.
“The answer is the polls dont work anymore...”
With all of those early voters having cast their ballots, why doesn’t or can’t they report to the public the ongoing tally of results?
Obama going down in landslide wave election.
More a loss for liberalism than a victory for Mitt - but its coming.
Right or wrong, it's his to play. If he loses, there will be hell to pay in the GOP civil war.
If he wins? I will man up and say I was wrong and he was right.
His strategy is to let Obama be Obama. Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.
If the People elect what they saw during the 3 debates, we are f***ed anyway. If they elect Romney, he won't have to deal with being the guy who ripped apart that nice man Obama.
He won the right to run the campaign his way. We get the answer soon.
Good luck, Mitt.
How do you explain the massive crowds for Romney and the weak ones for Zero?
Better inform the candidate’s themselves of this, because ROMNEY acts like a WINNER and OBAMA acts like a LOSER.
This article is crap.
Futhermore, if Americans re-elect this murderer of heroes, then Americans deserve no country.
From this thread:

I remember reading a couple FReepers' thoughts following the 3rd debate that their 'sense' was that both R & Ø acted like they knew something had or was about to happen.
They then proceeded to (mainly) sidestep the entire Libyan situation, with much wailing / gnashing of teeth here re Romney's 'missed opportunity' to stick the foreign policy knife in deeply.
And now, as this TREASON is finding the light of day, perhaps the mystery of that debate 'something' becomes clear as well.
Perhaps Mitt figured out, or was advised, to steer well clear of the entire CF and allow the MaggØt to hoist himself on his own traitorous petard ?
