Posted on 10/17/2012 7:04:26 PM PDT by kristinn
Major change to Univ. of Va's Ctr. for Politics (WWR's partner) electoral count: For first time, Pres. no longer has 270 safe/likely votes
Univ. of Virginia Ctr. for Politics now says President has just 267 safe/likely electoral votes - three short of needed 270. Romney: 235
UVA Ctr. for Politics has now moved Wisconsin (10 electoral votes) from leans Dem. to toss up. President's lead down to one point
New electoral college count: Obama 267, Romney 235 and 36 toss ups (Colo., New Hamp., Va. & Wisc.) from UVA Ctr. for Politics
UVA also notes the growing possibility of an electoral college tie: 269-269. If this happens, election is decided by GOP-dominated House

Still one more debate to go.
Millions of us are praying to Almighty God to save our country.....and it’s working!!
20 days to go! Let them be speedy can’t take much more!
...where Romney simply says to 0bama, “We wouldn’t STILL be talking about this if you hadn’t COVERED-UP WHAT HAPPENED THERE FROM THE GET-GO. NO ONE believes the shooting at Ft. Hood was “workplace violence” as you say it was and NO ONE was believing your narrative that a YouTube movie caused a protest at Benghazi!”
Amen to that!
I believe it is, I have no doubt Romney will WIN and BIG.
Say a prayer for some poor Libyan aspirin factory.
The Democrat Electoral College tampering is being led by Bob Beckel
Al Gore is attempting to reverse the outcome of the election by any means necessary. That includes tampering with the Electoral College itself. Democrat operatives have begun clandestine background checks on Republican electors already certified from the 29 states George W. Bush won on November 7. They are looking for ways to persuade or intimidate Republican electors into changing their votes . . . a shift of three [Electoral votes] would give Al Gore a majority and there are people in Gore's camp who seem to think private investigators can sway enough votes to win . . . a Wall Street Journal report on the Democrats' undercover assault on Republican electors [by Wall Street Journal's Glenn Simpson, Tom Hamburger, and Laurie Cohen says "One battle-tested Democratic consultant has even begun a quiet intelligence-gathering operation that could aid a last-ditch Gore strategy in the Electoral College. Bob Beckel . . . has been checking into the background of Republican electors, with an eye toward persuading a handful of them to vote for Mr. Gore . . . 'It is information gathering on my part, using my own network,' Mr. Beckel said, confirming an operation he set in motion days after the Nov. 7 election. 'I call on mostly Democrats, but some Republicans, too, and ask, 'Who are these electors, and what do you know about them?' I just wanted to know who these electors are.' Mr. Beckel, who owns a political-analysis business based in Arlington, Va., said he is working independently, 'on an ad-hoc basis,' and hasn't yet contacted any electors directly. 'I wouldn't do that without first informing the Gore campaign,' he said. The Gore camp itself has disavowed any intention of seeking to sway GOP electors.]
The presidential race is OVER...and Romney is going to win 55/45-or-so.
Time to roll out the coattails -- and bring a strong majority of Republican Senators into office, as well.
Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Dakota, Missouri, Florida, Montana, even Connecticut are part of this now...
I know what you mean.....
Heard Paul Rothsein (Professor at Georgetown) say that we have never been as close to seeing an electoral college tie as this election. Should that come to pass, the House would declare Romney President however the Senate would declare Biden VP. The possibility of that is giving me the heebie jeebies.
No, he will declare Marsha law and swing his purse at anyone who opposes him.
You know the media always wants it to look like a tight race so that everyone is always focused on them.
It will not be close, bank on it. Even if it is and Biden ends up veep, SFW? He is a pathetic idiot and Romney would just assign him tasks commensurate with his abilities. Like scooping up dog poop on the White House lawn.
Hee he he.
