Posted on 07/30/2012 4:28:07 PM PDT by Perdogg
With just 100 days left until the U.S. presidential election, investors are beginning to make bigger bets on which candidate will carry the day.
One analysis concludes that last week's sharp three-day market surge can only mean that Wall Street is banking on a victory from Republican Mitt Romney.
That's the logical interpretation one can draw from a rally amid conditions that otherwise would demand a selloff, Morgan Stanley chief U.S. equity strategist Adam S. Parker said in an analysis that asserts there is no other reason now to like stocks than a Romney win.

He most certainly does . . . How else is he gonna fill up all those hundreds of FEMA camps with innocent people ?
“This election will not even be remotely close.”
I hope you mean a Romney landslide; I for you don’t believe for a minute that Obama can win even in NJ. Too many long-term unemployed (including the municipal employees laid off over the past few years), too many “For Sale” signs, too many shuttered businesses - NJ is having a terrible time (as most high-tax places are). Our malls, when they do have people in them, aren’t selling anything; the “shoppers’ “ hands are empty, or they are carrying a pretzel in one. We even have a brand-new mall near Giants Stadium that was completed a few years ago and NEVER OPENED. Small businesses are getting crushed, and letting go their workers.
You don’t even see Obama stickers in urban black areas anymore; they’ve fallen behind even further.
Ayers is a close friend of TOTUS. Need anyone say more?
I hope you mean a Romney landslide.I have been saying for over a year now on numerous threads - as long as the GOP nominee did not blow bubbles with his drool that he will win the election and it will not be close. Romney is too polished to make a mistake he cannot recover from, and in any event it is really not about him at all. It is all about Obama. The election is a referendum on Obama and his policies. He will lose and it will not be close.
...not one of the top election analyzers like Barrone or Rove think that it will be a blow out...Beltway pundits and people who live it all day long all the time tend to miss the forest for the trees. There is no way that this election will be about anything but Obama. Romney is irrelevant, he just needs to avoid blowing bubbles with his drool. An election about Obama is a losing one for Obama. Anyone who sees it like this will know I am right.
“The election is a referendum on Obama and his policies. He will lose and it will not be close.”
I’ve been saying the same, without as much optimism; I can’t believe we’ve reached the point (yet) where more than half the voters think Obama is a better person for the job than Romney. With the exception of sexual deviants, public employees (those who have survived layoffs), and the permanent underclass (even though they’ve sunk further in the past four years), I can’t imagine who would even vote for Obama at this point. “White guilt” died in 2008; Obama governs as though whites don’t even exist (unless he’s holding his hand out to Hollywood for money). When they ask the traditional question, “Are you better off than four years ago?”, I can’t believe even 25% of Americans can say, “Yes”.
You're right Tennessean...
We shall see. I doubt that you are more astute at reading electoral votes than Michael Barrone.I guarantee you that I am more astute at reading elections than Michael Barrone. However, I think Michael Barone might be the best at reading elections, and I imagine most will think his opinion is more important than mine.
