This whole WaPo video is a total Axelrod piece.
here is my prediction
Iowa is more likely than Nevada.
That’s about what I see as well. Let’s hope great minds think alike. No way I can put up with a marxist, narcissistic moron another 4 years.
I think there is going to have to be a surprise win in some other states for Romney...because Ohio is making me nervous.
Either this election is going to be so close that a few dozen votes in a few dozen states will decide it, thus proving the tightness of the polls,
Or it is going to make the shellacking of 2010 look tame with Romney-Ryan getting more Electoral Votes than Obama got in 2008, thus having the media deceiving their viewers and themselves as they did in the 2004 and 2010 elections.
[I hope we see a blow out Tuesday, the race called for Romney-Ryan by 9:00 EDT, and the Media jumping out their windows in shock.]
That said, i've never seen a more partisan presentation even from WaPo, already accepting that their writing is in the tank. This video is over the top, actually entertaining to watch. It's a hit piece hidden behind a humble nerd and slick graphics.
For me, especially this late in the race, this video is the media's crowning achievement not just for reality-ignoring bias, but for actively influencing outcome.
let us hope
My bird won’t even poop on the pages of the Compost.It’s a wholly owned subsidiary of the Rat Party and therefore it’s polls are not to be believed.
I’m not watching the video bc I’m not giving WaPo any hits but if he claims Romney needs WI on a 281 map perhaps he is foreshadowing what I believe will be the Election Night MSMeme once it’s clear Bobo has lost — which is that Romney didn’t get to 300EV and thus has no mandate.
Does your concernnnnnn extend to the PV? Do you expect Romney to win the National Popular Vote? Of course you do. Then read the following....
The Fix, also known as Chris Cilizza, is one of the most ardent Obama ass-kissers in the media. If you’re looking for Lefty conventional wisdom, he’s your man.
Ohio will follow the national trend-GOP.
I believe your post comes a bit later, when, having added WI and calculated 281, they remove Wisconsin again, and the EV counter at the bottom remains w/Romney @ 281.
So I believe I'm right, happy to be wrong though.
Think about it - what is the last line of defense for the media and Axelrod?
Ohio is an example of the old saying here that Flack is because you're over the target. All Axelrod propaganda is now invested in Ohio.
Ohio will go 4.5 for Romney.
Do you know that, as of yesterday, Obama's entire 263K '08 victory in Ohio is already wiped out by early voting and ballot requests? See LS's numbers, but also see Rove's WSJ article yesterday which de-emphasizes the significance of the actual math, just as Gallup buried the lede on the 20% swing against Obama in early voting into a final paragraph, presumably so he/they can maintain interest in their conversation.
The conversation is over. Right now media, including Rove and many R commentators, is all about keeping themselves relavent through Nov 7.
But also, they are setting themselves up for a great narrative about "how the polls and media got it wrong!!!!!" ... this analysis will go on for 3 months and spawn a number of books.
At this point, all media, most R media as well, know the race is over, and are collectively developing a narrative that will profit all of them - close race to the finish - grand surprise that it was a blow out.
It was never close.
[I hope we see a blow out Tuesday, the race called for Romney-Ryan by 9:00 EDT, and the Media jumping out their windows in shock.]””
I don’t think they can call any election before all the polls are closed. Most western states close polls at 7 PM Pacific time.
I am worried about the fact that daylight savings time changes this weekend, and some could show up at the wrong. time to vote.
The Washington Post? Who reads that?
Pretty good, but I think that Romney would also get Iowa.
In your map the red states are contiguous. We really do surround them. Start with New Mexico: we have them surrounded!
