Looks like more blue states are starting to change colors.
well... I have to admit, only Romney could have put Michigan in play.
I hope this isn’t an outlier.
Hardly a shock when the republican governor in the state next door just won an election by seven points and you’re from the state and your father was once governor.
It’ll only be a shock to the liberals who have counted on the old northwest being in the bag forever!
That does it. I’m sending Mitt a donation.
Mandate Hillary Romney edges Communist Undocumented Coffee Server.
This isn’t shocking folks, this is reality.
What is shocking is how the MSM and the Pundents are so completely and utterly out of touch with the realities of the country.
2 nights ago Obama got an exit Poll in Wisconson, that nailed the election shut for him... That was this... in a heated, motivated election in the state of Wisconsin, voters who actually showed up to vote, would only vote for him again at a rate or 44%... 44% folks, in WISCONSIN, that basically is the real story of the night and confirms what has been obvious for quite a while now... OBAMA CANNOT WIN RE-ELECTION, its statistically impossible.
Yes, the pundents spun this factoid as He beat Mitt in that question by 7 points (44 obama, 37 romney, 19 neither thats the raw result to the question in the exit polling) but the reality is, when it comes to election day 2012, that 19% aren’t going to break for Obama in any relevant way, folks who haven’t broken for a sitting president by now, aren’t going to break for them over the next 5 months. A small percentage may be first time voters who truly haven’t decided, but the overwhelming majority, have decided already, by the sheer fact they won’t be voting for the incumbent now, that they will be voting for his oponnent in November.
The press will continue to try to prop up this doofus with everything in their arsenal over the summber, but by fall, even that won’t work, and they will sense the blood in the water, and by october, the very idea Obama could win will be openly mocked by all but the most hard core leftist pundents. The press will turn on him, since the blood is in the water, and as defeat is undeniable, the more desperate the man-child will become and act, and the more desperate he acts, the lower his numbers will go.
I’m not saying get cocky, work damned hard until election day to get rid of this bufoon, and more importantly afterward so thos that replace him make cleaning up the mess he created top priority... but there is no calculus Obama wins in Nov. Frankly, the way he’s running his campaign right now, he will be lucky if he gets 40% of the popular vote.
Remember when Palin was upset with the McCain campaign for pulling out of Michigan? Well, it may be in play this time around.
More exploding heads in the White House.
Get rid of Detroit, and Michigan is as conservative as any Southern state.
Spin from NBC will be “Margin of error gives Obama lead in latest poll!”.
The only states Obama has a prayer of holding in the rustbelt and midwest are MN and IL.. and even those are not GUARANTEED.
All others are lost, OH, IN, IA, MI and PA are not going to back Obama in November.
Basically any state that has a siginficant blue dog democrat contingent, will not fall for obama. He’s got basically the North East, and the West Coast... and thats not going to remotely be enough. And if he keeps running his campaign like he’s doing currently cracks are going to form in even those havens.
Well.... The folks in Michigan, who normally vote for socialists are favoring a socialist. I at least give them credit for not being blinded by party labels.. You know, like some folks on "our" side...
These dimwits think they are gonna hold romneys "feet" to some proverbial "fire".
L. O. L.
These dimwits are going to be blindsided by the socialists in the democrat party holding hands with the "progressives" in the Republican party to permanently impale us upon Robomney care and anything else they can inflict upon us, EVEN though we are practically YELLING at them to STOP supporting "progressives" in the GOP.
“Get rid of Detroit, and Michigan is as conservative as any Southern state.”
The same could be said for Chicago/Illinois. Illinois is an AG state and Chicago runs the entire state....so sad.
And this is why I REFUSE to support the GOP nominating a SOCIALIST as its presidential candidate! We could nominate ANYONE and they would win against Zero.
We need a brokered convention.
One tactic Romney might consider is to video a campaign commercial in Detroit with a shuttered business or blighted, deserted neighborhood as a backdrop. The message: "THIS... is what progressivism has brought to what was once one of America's most vibrant cities. This is nothing short of unAmerican! It doesn't have to be this way!"
Same with Illinois and Chicago.
I know I am the wet blanket here but but polls in June about an election in November are about as accurate and newsworthy as exit polls. They mean nothing when they’re showing “news” that’s encouraging. They mean nothing when they’re showing “news” that is discouraging.
There’s just too much time between now and the election for polls taken today to matter. There are too many things - big things - that could significantly change between now and then. Israel / we go to war with Iran, the Euro crisis exploding, A decision on Obamacare getting overturned or not overturned etc...
Why is this a shock? If the polls were honest, Obama wouldn’t break 30%.
