RE: Right after the election, he did correctly predict that Obama would be unpopular by 2012, and even by 2010. He also said that the Republicans would regain much of their lost power.
As I said, I heard him on the radio predicting a 64 to 66 seat sweep by the GOP of the house in 2010. The result was 64. He was very close.
You’re right there, and when that happened, McCain was finished.
Say what you like about Morris, he is smart. If you actually listen to his analysis of the polls, you can’t really fault it. In fact, today he didn’t go far enough. He mentioned the modelling of the 08 model, but he should have said that certain pollsters are saying there will be even more Democrats this time, +13 samples and such (garbage).
I think we’ll win, unless the Dems can get enough dead votes. I saw one bumper sticker today... R+R :D
He was sure we would take the senate.
RE: He was sure we would take the senate.
I remember him on the radio predicting a 6 to 9 seat GOP win for the Senate. The result was 6.
If you watched the interview on Hannity today, Dick Morris was so wildly optimistic that he predicted Pennsylvania would swing to Romney.
Even Hannity did not believe that. He said “Oh come on...” when he heard Morris about PA.
Dick “Toe Sucker” Morris is about right, except Hussein will probably pull out Pennsylvania.
Okay, so, now I’m a little worried, because it’s DM. :’) Thanks BlueStateRightist.
Tragically, he is so often wrong. May he be right this time!
Well, I don’t necessarily believe Morris, but he does NOT just read other people’s polls-— he actually pays for his own private polling. That’s sort of his stock in trade. He has been running polls for a few weeks. Whether he is any more accurate than anyone else, who knows?
I remember Morris saying (about the same time in late Sep 2008) that McCain was in trouble, and that he had to come out swinging.
McCain was actually closing to Obama by 3 points or so, and then..................................................................................the Economic Collapse began. The Dow lost 778 in one day, McCain was stupid enough to "suspend" his campaign, and it was over before it ever really began.
At one point, about half a Trillion dollars was "mysteriously" exiting the financial system. This was economic terrorism, and it was never fully investigated or prosecuted.
I clearly remember him on Hannity saying we would WIN the senate. Others on FR remembered the same thing as they said on other threads. I do not doubt what you say he said, but he sure said we WOULD take the senate.
I absolutely believe Romney’s will win. Can’t wait to see Romney call O out during the Univision debate. O’s stuttering problem is going to get ridiculous, then the stutter will be followed by umms, and wells, uhhhs, and multiple ‘let’s be clear’. Then when O knows he’s truly screwed, watch for the ol’ middle finger scratch on the nose. This one is going to be really good.
There is no time for overconfidence. The prospect of four more years of Obama is too awful to think about.
Yep, and when R/R win in a landslide that I predicted 3 months ago, you won’t hear much from them.
I don’t listen to that guy. He has no principles if he could help Bill Clinton.
Frankly, he was close on that. There were a lot of Senate races that went down to the wire. And even if the republicans has taken control, I think it would have been largely symbolic.
The Democrats would have been doing the same thing as the Republicans are doing now, filibustering, or threatening to filibuster. In a way, it may have worked out for the Republicans, because Obama didn’t have to pivot to the center like Clinton did.
That he was. I remember it too.
