Keep thinking that Axelrod.
typical double speak, you don’t win the election by losing independents, it just does not happen.
AxleShaft giving up on 47% of America?
Axelrod acknowledging they may lose independents -
“This is a BFD!”
He must know they have enough dead voters and enough illegal voters in place.
they still REALLY think they can cobble together a winning coalition of minorities, government employees, welfare takers and union hacks, eh?
They can still count on dead people and illegal aliens, the Democrats’ most reliable voting blocks.
People who are winning don’t talk like this.
He’s figuring voter fraud may be able to pick up the slack.
Keep telling yourself that Ahole-rod
Have they already “found” enough votes to overcome the loss of the Indies? Keep a sharp eye out for these thugs, you poll watchers in the swing states.
Like his boss, Axelrod can’t do math either. The breakdown in most of the swing states is around one-third each for democrats, republicans, and independents. Assuming that zero republicans will vote for the Hero of Benghazi, the dems need to get more than half of the independents to break 50%. Of course, the percentages vary somewhat among the various swing states, but it is almost impossible for either side to prevail without a majority of the independents.
What do you need when you're hopelessly the loser ?
Pretty sure Bush lost independents in 2000.
If Romney wins so much as 1% of the Is in OH, CT, WI, and IA he wins. If he carries indies by 5-6, he likely carries PA and MI and if he wins indies by 12-15, he takes OR
I think I found that he had 48% and Gore had 46%.
They are going to need RAT turnout to be +5 or greater to pull it off.
I guess it is possible, but given our enthusiasm and our lead with Indies, I find it very hard to believe.
Oh well. At least Obama can still be President of Quinnipiac.
The Indie vote usually tracks the popular vote pretty well. 2000 was no exception.
Maybe Axelrod is right and this year will mark a major change from the norm with the Democrats turning out their voters like never before. Other than in leftist polling la-la land, however, I am not seeing any indication that this is actually going to happen.
They're losing women.
Hell, they're even losing black voters.
Just exactly whose votes are they looking for and counting on?
IMHO, they blew this election 2 yrs. ago when they told white, working class blue collar Democrat voters “we don’t need you”.
Of course you do...You count the votes.
