Rasmussen: Romney 269, Obama 243 (Electoral Votes)
Weekly Standard ^ | 06/14/2012 | JEFFREY H. ANDERSON

Posted on 06/14/2012 11:29:37 AM PDT by nhwingut

We’re a long way from November 6 (145 days for those who are keeping score at home), but Rasmussen’s latest polling of likely voters in states across the land shows Mitt Romney currently leading President Barack Obama in the quest for electoral votes. In fact, if the 9 key swing states were each to go according to Rasmussen’s latest polling, and if the 41 other states (plus Washington, D.C.) were each to go as they would be expected to go in a tight race, Obama would have 243 electoral votes and Romney 269 — enough for a tie (and an almost inevitable victory in the House of Representatives, where the 50 state delegations would each cast one vote to determine the president).

Look at Obama’s only re-election campaigns in 1998 and 2002.

In 1998 he ran unopposed in the Democratic primary and won the general election 89-11. Basically, unopposed.

In 2002 he ran unopposed in both the primary and general election.

So he - and more importantly his team - have never had to really run a true ‘re-election’ campaign. Shows, doesn’t it.

Optimistic about a Romney presidency.

When “The One” doesn’t win in November, there will be blood as his little beastie thugs will be outraged and take down and burn many inner cities across the country. Count on it. They are too stupid and too primal to control themselves.

A year ago the Weekly Standard identified 9 swing states:

Republican Leaning States:

Democrat Leaning States:

Toss-Up States:
New Hampshire

My feeling is Florida will go solidly Republican (Obama won by less than three points in 2008); Ohio will go Republican; and Virginia may prove tough (demographic changes since 2004).

Pennsylvania will be tough; Wisconsin is in play; and Nevada will likely go Republican.

Colorado will be close; Iowa will go Republican (Iowa has been trending more Republican); and Romney's proximity to New Hampshire will make New Hampshire a possibility.

I know that seeing Obama go down in flames would bring unspeakable joy to this conservative’s heart, but I think that more important is to keep dragging Congress rightward. Let’s gain solid majorities there, so that whether it is Obama or Romney, they will not get away with being fiscally irresponsible. Keep the pressure on!

Illinois and the other states have been redistricted for the next 10 yrs. By the RATs. I am not sure if the outgoing House or incoming House delegation would cast the vote.

I disagree with you that it will be close in the Electoral college, however I do expect that with the Media and others cherry picking polls, that it will seem to be a close race into October. Baring a surprise, I expect things to break Romney’s way late (actually just finally show what was there all along).

The real question is how many fraudulent votes can the Democrats manufacture.

I don’t care much for Romney, but my complete disdain of ODrama makes me hope so. It’s truly disappointing, though, to once again not be voting for a Candidate but against the other.

The plan is grassroots organizing to put more conservatives in Congress to control any liberal proclivities Mitt might have. Make his policies subject to Congressional approval. They can say “no” just as well to a Republican as a Democrat.

Also redouble efforts in state and local elections.

Romney is winning. It will be 2000 all over again.

The election will go down to Florida. Ohio will be in Obama’s camp because of the fraud.

Obama is not going to win a Red State. And they haven’t taken into account that Romney is a Northeast guy. They may vote for him for that reason alone. It’s possible there will be a NE sweep.

Problem will be Southern vote. They might just stay home due to the Mormon thing.

How is going to be close when he won’t win one Southern state or Wis, Mich and Ohio? And there is nothing to indicate that he won’t win those last three. The Walker victory has taken the heart out of the RAT Party and that will become clearer as the summer (and his blunders) goes on.

I mean “...there is nothing to indicate he (Oblamer) won’t LOSE those last three.”

Very few Southerners will not vote for Mitt because of his religion even if they (like me) view it with a jaundiced eye.
Getting the Disaster out of the White House is just too important.

Obama's Satanic Hand Signals

King 0 is certainly under the control of evil Satanic powers and perverse demonic entities

The group is currently pushing passage of New Jersey Democratic Sen. Frank Lautenberg’s recent “21st Century WPA Act” to reinstate the New Deal employment program, and Ohio Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur’s attempt to rejuvenate another New Deal program with her “21st Century Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Act.”

Heh...clear case of being careful what you wish for. WPA and CCC were run according to military style administration and discipline, which included uniforms and barracks for the laborers. Something tells me that the libs would not appreciate this one bit.

"Look at Obama's only re-election campaigns in 1998 and 2002."

Heck, look at his election campaigns:

In the March 19, 1996 primary election, Obama, running unopposed on the ballot.

In the November 5, 1996 general election, he ran against perennial unsuccessful candidate David Whitehead and first-time candidate Rosette Caldwell Peyton.

In the March 16, 2004 Senate primary, Obama ran against six other candidates, with only one viable candidate, Daniel Hynes, and a well funded first time candidate Blair Hull. If had been a two man race between Obama and Hynes, it may have turned out different.

Then of course, he had the Republican candidate, Jack Ryan, destroyed, and got a speaking role at the DNC.

Finally, he got to run against the hapless John McCain during a period of economic collapse and the least popular lame-duck incumbent since Johnson.

The only time he took on a real candidate in a competitive race was his 2000 primary challenge to Representative Bobby Rush, and he was crushed.

The legal language is tough for me to repeat but I believe, according to news articles, these States will only vote with the popular vote if enough States sign onto this idea to have a over 270 plurality.

I have relatives in Ole Miss and they already accepted the fact that Mitt is it. Sure, their parish members don’t like Mormons but they are smart enough to know Odumbo isn’t done destroying the country.

You don’t need to stay at the Holiday Inn to figure out that a 2nd term is just unacceptable.

Due to the devastating week Obama had last week, and the jobs numbers today going in the wrong direction, still, and based on some of the negative lib comments regarding Obama’s major policy speech today, I am beginning to think Obama could lose the Electoral Vote in numbers equalling McCain’s loss in 2008.
