Skip to comments.Pat Buchanan: As of now, Romney wins popular vote, but loses Electoral College
Posted on 10/26/2012 4:07:38 PM PDT by Arthurio
Could the upcoming presidential election be a repeat of the 2000 presidential election, when George W. Bush defeated Al Gore by a five-vote margin in the Electoral College, but lost the popular vote by 500,000 votes?
As of today, thats where it stands, according to conservative commentator Pat Buchanan.
Buchanan, author of Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?, said if not for the deficit Romney faces in Ohio with its 18 electoral votes in balance, he would be a solid favorite in next months election.
Overall, things look very good, Buchanan said. Let me say this if it werent for that five-point poll sitting out there again and again in Ohio, I would bet that Mitt Romney would win this election by two or three percentage points and win the Electoral College.

Yeah right with Benghazi blowing up all over DC.
Nah Pat, ain’t gonna to happen that way.
Gee, I saw Ras had the election tied in Ohio the day with Obama unable to eclipse the 50 point mark.
Romney is not going to win the popular vote by 3+ points and lose electoral college.
Pat doesn’t know how to analyze poll breakdowns.
It’s a statistical impossibility that Romney win nationally by 2-3 and lose OH. Can’t happen.
WIN BY 5% POPULAR, OR LOSE BY 8 ELECTORAL.
You need that margin to overcome early voting fraud and shut down the post election legal challenge circus.
Bush Gore .5% difference in popular vote.
Romney Obamer 5% difference Romney landslide.
drop dead pat
He should retire with Ezola B. Foster and shut the hell up and take Noonan with him.
Oh Pat, you are just so much smarter than the rest of us rubes. It is going to be a Tea Tsunami.
Pray for America
but Buchannon?.....he's nothing but a sour old man anyway.....not a team player...trying to stay relevant....trying to act like he's some important person...
I'm sick of old time republicans.....wish they would retire to the Phillipines....
WOW! This is scary because if memory serves me right Gore won the popular vote and W the electoral college. Any thoughts on this? Could this be a redux of the Gore and Bush election?
Isn’t his sister a big shot in the Romney campaign? Wouldn’t she know their internals? I don’t like the fact that he’s saying this.
Bay Buchanan is part of the Romney campaign? She is one shrill harpy. He’d have been better of with Coulter which isn’t saying much.
If you look at Pat Buchanan’s statement, it is based entirely upon publicly released polls. He has no inside info.
Nevada & California alone could come up with 500,000 illegal/graudulent votes.
In 2008, ACORN was caught with over 400,000 fraudulent registration cards. Their punishment? A fine of $5,000......barely 1 1/4 cents per card.
I fear there will be even more os such shenanigans this year.
We really need to clean up voter rolls & have voter ID laws nationwide.
pat couldn’t predict a bowel movement if he were sitting on a toilet with stomach cramps. He is an expert in hating Jews.
Some of these old fart has-beens are getting on my one nerve.....the ONLY one I’ve got left.
Mr. Buchanan, why don’t you go find a nice rocking chair right beside George Will, and both of you shut your pie holes?!
Pat is invested in surrender monkey white flags and gloom and doom. It’s how he makes money. Lots of FReepers have fallen for his demographic schtick and believe that 500 hispanics and Russians are living in closets next door to them.
He stayed at MSDNC too long. It rots your brains.
Poor Pat. No Willie Green to defend him any longer.
Chick-Fil-A appreciation day was just a preview of what is going to happen on November 6th.
What are the internals?
I am sure it is heavy +D.
Independents will break heavy for Romney, Ohio is going to be a comfortable win.
this puppy is over!!
the polls are off
dole was down by 13 lost by 7
kerry was up by a few and lost by 3
mccain was down double digits and lost by 7
ronmey cruises in ALL the swing states.
Seems like Mr. Buchanan is hedging his bets...or he has an inside scoop on the electorates?
Why ever did Fox dig up Buchy and Sununu? Tales from the crypt! Life was fine w/out them.
