The media is doing their damndest to keep this a horse race. If the poll shows that O is 6 points down, it’s gotta be downright horrid for him. Even Jimmuh Karter was shown to be ahead at this point in the election. O has been hanging around 43-47% (depending on the poll) for the last 3 years even though the news has been nothing but bad for the job that he’s doing. Where did they get this 45%? San Fran or Connecticut I’ll bet!
The only consolation for O on election day is that he won’t be beaten as bad as McGovern. It won’t mean much when he’s slinking back to Chicago with the ole ball’n’chain telling him everything he did wrong. The wife will return to her $360,000/yr each no-show jobs on various corporate boards. O will be mob boss and be hitting the gay clubs again (hitting the back door in more ways that one).
Liberals staying home doesn't affect our party but don't tell them that.
It would be fun to see a debate where the candidates just said exactly what they really thought.
Funny that you mention that. At night, I can listen to KFI 640AM out of LA. They were saying that an unusual number of Californians were turning away from 0. This is the state that allows Jerry Brown to hang around and keep drawing a paycheck, mind you, so I don’t have much faith in enough of them turning to make much difference. I wish I could’ve heard the rest of the radio show but I arrived at work and couldn’t sit and listen to it.
Lucky you, I received two today -- Debbie Wasserman Schultz wanting $5.00 and Bill Clinton boasting about the job Obama did last night...adding "he knows the feeling" ugh.
Have you seen this?
Yes, liberals, I whole-heartedly agree with your strategy!!! In fact, I urge you to spread your message of boycottting both parties across the country. If you are running ads, I would even consider contributing to your boycott of both parties! Go for it!!! Git er done!!! /s
I had the exact same reaction. Ras has R with a 2 point lead, which is probably about right. I was actually a bit worried by his swing state tracking, which today had Filth up by 2.
Heard Ras was ignoring his own weighting and went to a Dem +5. He does factor in cheating from what I remember...
What does that mean, “best for Dems”?
He weights his polls.
For what it's worth, I've been spending this week in Maui (Hawaii) with my wife and we've run into some couples from LA at some of the events we are doing. On the dinner cruise, we sat with a couple from Glendale who said they were voting for Romney and he will be the first Republican since Reagan they voted for president.
At a luau last night, we met another couple from Van Nuys and they too are for Romney. They saw me surfing Free Republic on my cellphone and perked right up. They were asking me how the debate went because they missed it.
Then today, we were on a van taking a tour of the Road to Hana and had a long discussion with another couple from LA and a couple from Seattle and they both were stating how we need a change in Washington and that they were impressed with how Romney has handled himself during this campaign.
In all cases, they brought up politics first. Maybe it's a function of the fact that people who can afford Hawaii trips tend to be conservative but I'm feeling pretty good about this election. Watch the results in California and prepare to be pleasantly surprised.
“Just keep telling yourself that Rasmussen is the most accurate pollster for some time now.”
A big AMEN to that!
Like I posted a while back, I have yet to find The Gospel According to St. Scott in ANY Bible.
If so many polls, which are over sampled toward the Democrats in pretty close to a 2008 elect model are showing Obama down like this, then the reality, which I believe is going to be closer to the 2010 model, is going to be breathtaking.
If it keeps up like this...and we have to work hard to make sure that it does...we may be looking at a 58%/43%, or even a 60%/40% victory and a landslide in the electoral college.
I pray it is so. It is precisely what we need to definitively put this madness to rest.
At the debate this Monday, prior to the debate, I hope Romney smiles, shakes Obama’s hand, and then leans in, sort of like Obama did to the Russian PM, and say,
After this election, youre going to have all of that flexability you talked to Medvedev about...because youre going to be looking for a new job...playing even more golf. Im going to bury you tonight.
Obamas False Narratives
An American Lament in 2012
Yes, in ‘08 I completely blew it, I just underestimated entirely how bad the Anti-Bush sentiment was, and how depressed the republican vote would be that year.
Obama swamped in Philly and republican and overall vote numbers were down across much of the T. I of course saw through Obamas flim flam nonsense from get go, but far too many others did not.
4 years later its not remotely the same dynamic... people can’t project on him things that aren’t there, now he has a record, and its one of complete failure and he can’t run or hide from it.
His entire campaign was nothing more than try to paint Romney as too extreme, and that was never going to work. For a Politician Romney is about as boy scout as you can get. He’s not perfect, but trying to paint him as some boogie man extremist was a doomed proposition from the start, but given Obamas record, it was only option they had so they went with it.
And like everything else Obama has done since entering the White House... Failed Miserably.
I hope to GOD that I am wrong, but I fully expect Gallup etc to tank for Obama the rest of the way, starting Today/Thursday
I pray I am wrong, but highly doubt it.
Also Fox is talking about it`s poll that comes out Friday, unfortunately I see Fox poll tankking for Obama as well as the others...Will be all lies for sure, designed to sway election to ZERO.
Fox has had the wool pulled over their eyes, first for years with Opinion Dynamics, now by another liberal polling firm they use... Pretty disgraceful on Fox part I must say
I would love nothing more than to be proven wrong on all counts...Here`s hoping
While it is ok to pretend that this is neck and neck and that Romney has not sealed the deal, the reality is that The Disaster has no chance. He is going to lose in a landslide and it will be bigger after Monday.
its not over...
