That all being said, I think we get results today comparable to 1980 and like back then, everybody will be surprised at the strength of Romney's victory today.
Americans respond well to positive, upbeat campaigns. Romney was all that this election season. Obama is looking like Carter, a beaten down, burned out and bitter man.
I’ve been very pleasantly surprised by Romney and until the debates, I had been only a lukewarm supporter of his. He has worked his tail off on this election and has been most impressive. And I couldn’t agree with you more on our presidential candidates since Reagan left office. Remember when GW Bush leisurely took off the final weekend before the 2000 election to relax at his Texas ranch and Gore and Lieberman, to their credit, campaigned around the clock in Florida and we know how that turned out? Romney, by contrast, campaigned late into last night and has two rallies scheduled TODAY in Cleveland and Pittsburgh.
The thing I’ve been noticing the last couple of days is, how few signs there are for Zero and Plugs; I drove by some mansion a half hour ago, the front lawn was covered with campaign signs for all the Demwit officeseekers, but that was probably some trust-fund [characterization omitted] who doesn’t have to work for a living. That is, after all, the constituency of that party.
The polling place I use is swamped, still. It was a long line at 7:15 am (my own fault for not getting there before the doors opened) and again about an hour ago, and again about ten minutes ago.
