Posted on 11/03/2012 5:03:01 PM PDT by 7thson
I have been listening to and reading the news the past few days - including today. The news cable channel I watch is FOX. The election news bizarre.
The past couple days I hear and read that Romney has the edge in early voting. Than on FNC about four hours ago, they report Obama has the early voting lead. An hour after that, another report on FNC states Romney has the early voting lead. Now I hear that Obama has the early voting lead.
The last few days, Romney has the lead. Than today, Obama has the lead. Than another report has it tied.
What the hell is going on? Is the media - including FNC - just making this up to gin up ratings?
Brett Bier reports that now Rove is stating that Romney has lost the momentum due to Sandy and the Obama/Krispy Kreme Christie factor and that it is again tightening up. However, Michael Barone comes out and calls it for Romeny yesterday. Bier says Rove is a numbers guy so he sees something that gives him pause. Yet no mention today at all concerning Barone. The only thing I have seen on him was on Greta's show last night.
I think Romney is going to win. I pray and hope he does. The momemtum seems to be going his way. Yet these contradictory reports give me an uneasy feeling. What is the opinion of other Freepers?
Barone coming up on Huck in a minute.
You are being played. The media (especially tv) needs ratings, viewers. More people watch if its a tight race.
I’m with the crowd that says this is going to be a blowout of historic proportions. I just hope we get the Senate.
I’m sure you meant THEN, not THAN.
The only poll that counts is on the 6th.
My gut tells me it’ll be Romney/Ryan in a blowout. But my nerves tell me it’ll be a nail-biter. We’ll see which one wins....
I saw Fox telling the lie yesterday. Romney has lost no momentum. Bottom line a lot on Fox are big gov t and liked Obama last time. Don t trust the news. Mostly lies. Romney is rolling
I have a Democrat neighbor who is 75 yoa and never voted in his life. He and his wife are voting Romney here in Fla. and they don’t even like him that much because he is rich. That is huge. Gingrich and Bill Cunningham are very positive about Romney winning and Rove is as well. I think it will be a huge blowout too but I intend to have a bit of Irish Creme to calm my nerves!! LOL! Rove said we may not know until Wednesday morning who won.
Landslide by Romney.
The problem with the polling is that there will be a lot of Dems voting for Romney. All their analysis is depending upon loyal voting patterns. Think ‘Reagan Democrats’.
The newsies have to make it appear close or they lose their relevance.
Tuesday night, even if one candidate is winning by 10 points, they will not call the states until later in the evening.
The real answer is: the election is going however the person reporting the news wants to say it is.
Objectivity in journalism is dead.
On another note...you might be interested in this: Then vs. Than
turn off the TV ( we got rid of ours!).....and pray!!
And after Romney wins we will have another liberal president. Hip, hip hooray! < /sarc>
