Skip to comments.Is there a Republican landslide coming in November?

It would be an election night to remember for Republicans and conservatives if the Romney/Ryan presidential ticket wins in a landslide, but nothing short of shock and awe for Democrats and their liberal media allies based on the latest polls.
Quick to sweep the historic Republican election landslide in 2010 and Scott Walker's big victory in Wisconsin's recall election under the rug, Democrats and the liberal media have been treating Obama's dismal record on the economy and foreign policy the same way they treated those elections - like they never happened.
Since those elections, Democrats and the liberal media have been in total denial, enabled by skewed and biased polls to continue reporting with a straight face their foolish narrative that the Tea Party and conservatism are dead and that a majority of the American electorate wants four more years of Obama.
Unfortunately for the Democrats and the liberal media, after November 6th there may not be enough room under the rug to hide the election results this time.
Consider that new evidence shows that political polling may have reached a point where consistent and accurate consensus results may be more luck and manipulation than science.

I am the worst at guessing. Every election I have gotten wrong since I started voting. So that does not say much for me. I DEFINITELY thought McCain was going to win in 2008...I never thought America was that stupid and out of touch.
I am certainly hoping and praying for one. I’ve sent my ballot in so that’s a step in the right direction!
Interesting point the article brings up, and make sense. You know what assessment I get about polls after this article (since people apparently don’t like to take polls)... STOP TAKING POLLS!!
I know, wishful thinking.
Bank on it.
I see it going only one of two ways.
1. Landslide for Mitt
2. Tight race, “O” wins
I don't see Mitt winning in a close call. I don't see “O” with anything approaching a landslide.
Just my humble opinion.
There should be a GOP landslide. The Silent Majorty must rise up and speak.
No. Most American’s are idiots.
They won't know what hit 'em on Nov. 6.
I live in one of the few Republican counties in New York and I speak talk to lots of people almost every day. The people I talk to think I am a Democrat, I do not correct their impression, it makes for interesting conversation. The sense I get is the electorate is much more informed then the liberal media gives them credit for. A few big things stand out
1) The spending is important to the elderly. They dont want their grandchildren to pay their debts, in spite of the Obama Medicare scare.
2) I have been told without prompting the Democrats answer to every problem is to raise taxes.
3) Out of 200 or so people only two said they vote straight party lines.
4) I dont see many Obama signs but the two homes festooned with Obama propaganda I happen to know are not active voters. (If they vote at all, its only presidential)
Obama will still take New York; there are just too many dependants on government largeness to discount. But he will not even be close to the 2008 support he saw in NY. If this feeling is across the country Romney will be our next president.
So... why does Americans (plural) get an apostrophe, but idiots (plural) doesn't?
“American electorate wants four more years of Obama.”?
I’m part of that electorate and IF I were to say what I’d like to see happen to this marxist punk the gub mint goon squad would pay me a visit.
So far, this says"landslide" in OH. Again, it is early.
Lies, All Lies. There are no skewed and biased polls!
What was your first election? My first election was in 1984.
I was right about 1984 and 1988
I was resigned to reality in 1992 and 1996
I though Bush would do better in 2000 and 2004, eventhough I thought he would win.
I though McCain was going to win in 2008.
I was counting on the Silent Majority in ‘08 and was very disappointed.
I’m still thinking they’ll show up this year and speak up via their vote.
Yes. And I am so looking forward to how the msm will explain it while absolving the president of any responsibility for it.
It’s my gut feeling too.
Dittos that. I figured our WI recall elections would wind up with weeks of legal challenges until the Dems squeaked out a “win.” There were very few more shocked than me when the election was called for Gov. Walker less than an hour after the polls closed.
The science of “predicting” election outcomes is a sorry failure. Almost as bad as predicting climate change.
