FOX & Friends: "McCain pollster claims election will not be decided tonight"
FOX & Friends | 11/04/08 | Me

Posted on 11/04/2008 4:54:50 AM PST by nhwingut

I was watching Brian Kilmeade of F&F interview David Plouffe of the Obama campaign. Kilmeade told Plouffe that the McCain internal pollster told him that this election is "razor thin" and moving in "McCain's direction," predicting the election "will NOT be over tonight."

Plouffe did not have his per usual snarky, cocky look. He appeared concerned. Anyone see/else hear this?

I saw it a few minutes ago.

Plouffe had the look of a man who was just told on the air that his fly is open.

I didn’t see it, but if McCain wins, the election will definitely not be over tonight. The Dems will begin litigation immediately, and I think the GOP is prepared for this.

The McCain pollster is absolutely wrong. This election was decided about two weeks ago. Today is just a formality.

More's the pity.

Not that confident, I agree. I loved hearing Brian Wilson’s report...he’s been in battleground states at diners and coffee shops chatting with the folks for weeks. Brian—the polls didn’t feel right! The polls were much different than what he was hearing on the ground. Hmmmmmmm.

The election will be so close in a couple of key states and the popular vote may in fact go overwhelmingly to Obama, especially as states like California, Illinois and New York go unusually heavy towards the left(more so than they normally do) that the results will bring rioting to a neighborhood towards you. I have hope McCain can pull it out but I do not have hope that the masses that pull for Obama will understand the system, at all. This election scares me more than any has, especially considering the neighborhood I live in.

I was watching Brian Kilmeade of F&F interview David Plouffe of the Obama campaign.

I saw a piece of it and was shocked at the fluff and softballs that Kilmeade was tossing Plouffe. Something like, "Isn't it amazing that a man who was living in an alley 20 years ago is now on the threshold of the Presidency of the United States of America?" I started yelling at the TV. If it had been Katie Couric, I would have understood a question like that. But, really... Maybe Kilmeade saw Plouffe's poor mental condition and decided to make him feel better.

I would rather my tongue were cut out before I can speak it, and my fingers cut off before I could type it...

At any rate, the "official" announcement will come just before 1:30AM Eastern Time....and it won't be McCain.

What's worse...you knew that before you asked the question.

If it was decided 2 weeks ago, please stay home today. And tell all your friends to do the same. The election isn’t over until the votes are counted, even the dead people who will be voting overwhelmingly for Obama.

Well we may know by 10pm. If McCain takes PA then that is a bellweather that the polls were dead wrong. If He loses Pa badly like by 7-10 then well then it could be a long night.

If McCain wins, and there has not been a single poll across America since Sept. that says he will - and that one had him by +2, then what would that say about the massive level of conspiracy that was at work?

I swear, the reason Obama congratulated McCain yesterday—other than to give him the finger!—was so he could escape giving any concession speech at all. He’ll be battling for his cousin’s kind of power-sharing agreement before he concedes defeat.

He did look a little peculiar, in a psycho sort of way. I couldn't glean anything about the race from that. Maybe his dog just died or his dad cut him out of the will, who knows?

I don’t think it’ll be over tonight either. The Dems have attorneys on call everywhere, and this will end up like 2000, with lawsuits and recounts and military ballots unopened.

I did not see the bit on FNC. Yesterday, however, Obama was on the tube. He seemed down and very tired. It could be that he felt bad his grandmother died, it could be he was tired, or it could be he knows he is toast. At any rate, he was unable to portray the confidence he usually does (when he does not have to answer any questions).

I voted! This morning! EMPHATICALLY!!!! For McCain. But he has lost this election. The republicans have lost this election. And can you just imagine the type of candidate the republicans will have to run in 2012 to even be remotely competitive?

It is time to pull back...if they want to take my $$ just so someone who believes they have a "right" to do so, they better try to figure out how they will get blood from a turnip.

If Obama is losing, they won’t wait until tonight to start their catterwalling. The tales of voter intimidation, the legal challenges and anything else that will throw the election into an uproar will start by late morning.

Keep an eye out for that, esp. in the battleground states. Just like the 2000 FL debacle started around noon when it was reported that people wanted to vote for Gore, but voted for Buchanan instead.

The Obama campaign will want to make a stink early to rile up their voters out west.

Wouldn’t it be great if the overseas military vote tipped it to McCain after they finally get to counting them? Would be like winning the war over here as well as in Iraq. And, following that, Bush should bring home a few good Marines to take care of the rioters after the election.

You need to take the ire you feel about this and use it in the voting booth.

I've already done so.

But wanting something because a) is it right, and b) because you want it ... won't make it happen.

And...we care deeply about your opinion...just like you care about (even if you don't like) mine, right?

I hope this time that in any race anywhere where the margin is close, McCain and the Republicans will mount a vigorous recount effort and examination for Acorn-type voter fraud.

Getting back to the original premise of this thread, Dinoparty has the correct answer on his #11.

You hit the nail on the head, Dino. We're going to be subjected to misinformation, red herrings, sleights-of-hand, misdirection, illusions, spin, lies, propaganda and oily smooth-talkin' ALL DAY LONG today.

Analyze everything that catches your eyea and ears, folks, and you'll be able to make it through the day in fine fettle.
