This is what I think will happen. I specifically remember the “too close to call” predictions right up until the day before Nov., 1980 election.
By the time I came home that nite, turned on TV, and John Chancellor was sitting in front of a Nation of blue (back then the GOP was represented by blue).
I was stunned, a whopping landslide in what was supposed to be a close call. So many undecideds/moderates/independents will vote against the incumbent when they sense things are not the way they should be.
November will be a vote to oust Obama, not to bring Romney in.
In 1980 the polls were all leftist lies trying to keep Carter in the race.
The line about the late-breaking undecideds was just a cover story.
The same thing will happen this year though more subtly.
November will be an anti-'Rat tsunami.
We are going to whip the commies right out of their boots!
I remember that I voted about ten minuties before my precent closed and headed home. About the time I drove into my driveway Reagan was declared winner.
I share your views re the 1980 election and that something like it is likely to happen in 2012 re a last minute break for the challenger. As I recall reading about 1980, yes it was a neck and neck race of Reagan vs Carter going right down to the wire. But the night before the election, Carters team came to see him and said the internals strongly suggested he was going to lose by a landslide...and ol’ Jimmy was stunned.
I think Obama is going to lose but not be a landslide. There are too many on the left that will vote for Obama no matter what....they are the whores that want to be wards of the state.
