The Constitution says two things as I recall - states in charge of voting and specifically names the day voting occurs. I’m asking any Constitutional scholars out there to tell me whether voting can be postponed.

Mot only does Romney lead in 95% of the polling in which the questions asked are who do you trust to create jobs, better the economy along with who is a better leader, but he also now leads in an area that the libs have been jumping up and down about while they point to it as the reason Obama will win and that is “likeability”.

But now we have this from the Newsmax article:

“For the first time this year, Romney has a majority favorable image. His favorability rating is 52 percent, Obama’s is 51 percent. According to the poll, Romney is viewed favorably by a majority of independents (59 percent), seniors (57), married voters (61), moms (56), college graduates (54), middle class voters (56), and middle class families (61).”

So, if Romney leads in EVERY category which the likely voters views as “most important” and he is in addition more likeable, how, HOW can any poll show Obama leading, if only by a single point?

Imagine if you will you are speaking to someone about the election and you ask him his feelings about the above issues and who is better suited to handle them. The person you are addressing admits all of them, the economy, jobs, leadership, experience and likeability are favoring Romney and further agrees the issues are the most important to him as a voter.

Then you ask him who he will vote for on November 6th. He says “I will vote for Obama”.

Is that a WTF moment or what?

All the broken glass (and the nails strewn about a tea party rally parking lot) have been buried in the dirt by tens of thousands of feet attending Romney-Ryan rallies and at Chick-a-Filla diners.....leaving a clear path to the November 6 vote.

The Tsunami will wash away Obama and his czars and minions...

The dims will be buried in the dustbin of history.

It is a different poll. The one you refer to is a snapshot of the topline question of who will people vote for, while this one is a projection on who will win based on a weighing of all the internals such as leadership qualities, jobs creation handling the economy, likeability etc. It is all these areas in which Romney has a strong lead that factored into the projection for the winner on Nov 6th.

would not put anything past this admin, not specifically dumbo but specifically the women behind the man child. Specifically Valerie Jarrett and Moochelle, Valerie because she loves the power, Michelle because she loves the freebies and lifestyle.
Obama does not have the guts, nads or fortidude to stand up to either so what they say he will do.

As far as the Constitution - that is a living breathing ever changing document as far as these folks are concerned

While Benghazi is outrageous I have repeatedly stated that this was too complex an issue tying it to Obama WITHOUT THE DRIVE-BY MEDIA, that it won't make an impact before the election. And he'll be gone in 2013 and no Republicans are going to waste time with an investigation toward impeachment.

Sometimes there is no justice. Clinton got away with rape, after all.

I believe what we saw on Chick-fil-A day is just the tip-of-the-iceberg of what's coming Obama's way next Tuesday. A HUGE, silent majority will show up and quietly vote.

I heard on the news this morning early voting is canceled in Maryland and DC today. Once the power goes out (late today/tonight) it will be days before it is restored. This is going to be a big hit to the EV efforts in these areas.

47%... Providential, I’d say...

Can we use the word REPUDIATION, anyone?

Repudiate:
1. To reject the validity or authority of
2. To reject emphatically as unfounded, untrue, or unjust

“I would not put it past the dems to try and postpone election or extend voting due to hurricane.”

The only states where the hurricane is going to hit where it could possibly matter from the perspective of the presidential race are PA and OH. The decision to extend voting would presumably be made at the state level. The Governor and Secretaries of State of those states would presumably be making that decision. And what do all those folks happen to have in common?

They’re all members of the gop.

Nobody on the conservative side is staying home this year.

It is still going to be a landslide. Half the moderate rats will pull the R lever this year, and a good percentage of them will just stay home.

4 years of Obama fully cured ‘white guilt’, independents are well past that stupid experiment of electing the first Halfrican American community organizer.

“The dims will be buried in the dustbin of history.”

Unfortunately, they won’t be. Absent a concerted effort after the election to consign them to the dustbin, they’ll be back again come 2014. Kinda like zombies.

And the gop has never acted to consolidate it’s victories once it has them.

This is also where conservatives make a huge strategic mistake in not boosting a second party. Think of it less as supporting someone like the libertarian party and more of choosing who your opponents are. So who do you prefer? Gary Johnson or nancy pelosi? It shouldn’t be a hard decision.

Thank you Art.

I went to your link and found it very interesting.

I was confused about one item in that PDF file....it was the 2008 election. Instead of “actual” vs “projected” for the McCain/Obama 2008 race they use something called a “torrance” vs a “late projections” notation.

Not that I consider you an expert to put stress on you, I know you just provided a link. But if you know what that’s about could you clarify?

But, again, thanks for the link, the truth is right there in front of eyeballs.

Wow.

I think Romney’s going to win in a landslide, yes I do. There are so many signs of this and like Rush says, this run up to the election they have to report the truth else in the future they will be mocked.

And, as Rush said, the polls all show Romney taking a lead.

I think the Obama campaign is desperately trying to hide their impending doom because their internals likely show a landslide as well. They’re struggling to keep any notion from a landslide away from the meme cause THAT will keep away the few even bothering to vote for the moron.

America could have elected a fine upstanding black man who loves his country. Allen West comes to mind but there lots of choices. They didn’t have to pull this moron out of the pot-smoking crowd, goodness how they’ve hurt themselves by choosing Obama as their benchmark. We can thank the dictator-loving Black congressional caucus for Obama, not noble folks who loved their children and want a good life for their future.

Instead Obama will go down forever and ever as a disaster. If we get Romney in there and with some serious elections of local conservatives across the fruited plains, we can turn this country around and set it straight.

Then, about 20 years from now America will elect another moron, maybe a Muslim or some such....cause, well that’s our pattern here in America.

We’re nice, open-minded and like to give everyone a chance.

OBama blew it.

Sad.

The end of the week look for two stories developing. The Kenyan “suspending” his campaign to concentrate on the hurricane, and tell the country he has everything under control and not to worry that Uncle Sugar will take care of them. Also look for a drone attack that has “killed” the murderers of the four Americans in Libya. The Kenyan will go on national TV and and report to the world that “he” has kept his word and will remind everyone and their brother that he killed Obama Bin Laden and “he” has also taken out the killers of the ambassadors and Navy Seals. This SOB will try everything in the book to stay in power. Pray that this poll is right and the American public ignores this delusional bastard every time he opens his mouth.

Then again, after watching the traitorous maggot hang our people out to be murdered by his goatf***ing coreligionists,
our military folks just might (hopefully) find any directives from Ødious prior to election day impossible to carry out due to any number of inexplicable logistical factors.

Personally, I think Benghazi calls for a noose.
