Since I haven't seen one yet, I'll start it.
Unfortunately it seems that the polls were actually correct this time.
Let's face it the big O played a much better chess game!!! And ..... It is very sad to think that the fate of this country could well have been determined by people that played a better strategic GAME and not what values matter most :-(
It would appear the now ... long hard uphill battle begins. Unfortunately ... the country we try to save now may well have been fundamentally changed and not the same as she once was only a few years ago.
I have to admit, I’m stunned by some of the results I’m seeing tonight. I take nothing as etched in stone yet, but I really am surprised at how strongly Obama has been running at this point.
2008 made sense. The GOP brand was badly damaged, and McCain was the worst Republican candidate since Bob Dole in 1996. 2012 seemed a different horse all together. Even pro-Obama polls showed him vulnerable on all the issues, and IMHO, Romney has run a very strong campaign. Just doesn’t make sense to me.
We’ll see, though. FL, VA, and OH haven’t been called yet (at least as I finish this post). Might be a few surprises yet.
Polling had Romney up so how was it accurate? And don’t give me that crap about Christie spiking O’s numbers. No way that picture shifted a nation’s vote. Hell, I never even saw it.
If I had a dollar for every time someone else realized that on FR....I'd have about $50.
One problem is people tend to mis-remember poll inaccuracy - the Wisconsin governor polls weren't that far off-the problem was the media spun the race to make it look closer than it was.
We have to win Iowa or it’s over.
Nevada will not help us.
What makes you think we will win FL?
Romney is closing the gap fast in Ohio now.
Rove on FOX speaking optimistically about the vote count in Ohio...
Megyn Kelly is REALLY ticking me off. She is just a little too cutsey tonight.
It’s like being a Cubs fan.....*sigh*
But, it’s not over yet. I’m a religious man and I still have faith.
It’s about Florida. 2000 deja vu. Recounts.
STay in voting line: Media will call Florida for Obama to get those still in line in the conservative Pan handle to go home and not vote.
That is a consolation, for all the good it’ll do. 0bummer’s going to exact his ***revenge*** without any interference from the US Congress. He’s been doing end-runs around congress for the past 4yrs. That’s not going to change.
The most frustrating thing is that God has given us a fantastic candidate in Romney. He is the man for the times, and the freaking scum half of this country is more interested in free frikin condoms!
Thank you for saying this! I kept reading posts about how all the past polls were wrong, and every time I went back and looked and they were always spot on!
We’ve had 4 years of suffering. Enough already.
PLEASE -- If you're going to post numbers, tell us where and who for. And even with Jim's suggestions of 20 posts per view, FR is too slow to go back to figure it out.
I didn’t think I’d be so nervous about Florida... feel good about OH, VA, and NC. Not sure about IA, CO, or NV - but figure NV is gone.
We have no power over the RINO's
Hello Brother, thanks for your post. I am having a hard time as many are here. I really thought God would deliver us, that we have suffered enough and merited relief. Please dear God our Father deliver us from this evil.
Yes, but that’s what is so sad.
This is bad, not like Obama McCain bad, but like bad, bad, bad bad.
We work, ride the train with, buy goods from, speak to, literal enemies who want to destroy us and apparently themselves. We live with evil who would rather cause misery to others just because of their own personal shortcoming and failures.
Game over, time to relocate. I updated my tagline about 2 months ago, I was pretty sure this was going to happen. If only I had millions and a big huge cargo boat =/
Actually I was pretty sure like most on this site the day Mitt won the primary, that it was over.
I had a glimmer of hope though, especially after Benghazi that America really wasn’t a communist, corrupt, self-loathing nation. But I was wrong.
And just like the Succubus, our women are/did drag us right to the gutter. Time and time again.
I can’t believe Obama has as many votes as he does.
I am worse off now than I was four years ago. Prices are up. I lost a job and finally got one this year. However it pays 28% less than the previous job. That difference is a lot for me.
Maybe most of the nation are not political junkies like us.
I couldn’t agree with you more. The appearance of fairness is completely absent.
“I agree. As an old white guy, I could not imagine how anyone who lived thru the last 4 years would want more of the same. I could not imagine how anyone on the liberal side could be afraid of the most liberal republican who ever ran for President. “
Perhaps many conservatives were afraid of Romney’s liberalism and chose not to vote. Or that he was a Mormon. Many conservatives believe in only voting their conscience for someone and not just as a tactical move to take out the other guy.
“My stomach is in such a knot especially hearing on FNC that women are breaking overwhelming for O.”
Then they whine that their men (unable to get decent work) don’t want to marry/have kids. If Obama wins, I hope no white woman gets a marriage proposal until 2016.
I remain hopeful until it’s really over, and it’s not over yet.
Romney may had been up in the national polls, but in the state by state polls, he has been behind in the electoral college for quite a while.
Well, Gary Johnson is sort of off the hook. Obama’s lead in Florida is now greater than Johonson’s vote total.
Romney may still win, but it may be so close that Romney has no political power.....A 4 year Lame Duck.
Sodom and Gomorrah
US Churches filled with Non Christians, people spitting on Christ
Next step wide spread gay marriage
Weep for this country
Rove thinks OH is ours. VA and NC look okay to me. At this point I’m mainly concerned about FL and either CO or IA.
2 election judges removed earlier today 1 repub 1 dem) for allowing ppl to vote who weren’t registered.
In Hamilton Co (OH).
Per Fox News.
I always suspected FL would be tough. Obama's got that "popular culture cache."
You too? I mean I don't want to see a stark raving MSNBC-like moonbat up there but someone acting like she just got asked to the prom by the captain of the football team is a little inappropriate too.
nothing wrong with the comment.
those people hear what the media want them to hear
Christie should be hogtied and roasted
you made me LOL in spite of all this! No proposals!
Let this be true!
I think Fox called Wisconsin for Obama nearly an hour ago.
“OReilly is saying obama gained far more by Sandy than what he lost by Benghazi, and that if obama wins it will be because of Sandy.”
I assure you that the only impact of Sandy was that it distracted the country from issues that matter; Christie had nothing to do with it. NJ and NY may wallow in their own feces for voting for Obama (and I live in NJ).
Where the heck is NC?
It doesn't matter. The media will follow every Republican around with a microphone 24/7 waiting for anything remotely negative. If there is nothing, they'll make something up (ala Macaca)
I concur with both the quoted statement and yours.
We are a shambles.
To think, farmers in 1776 understood core government values and politics do than most people today- unreal.
Talk about regression.
This is like literally living through late 3rd century Rome.
Wow the irony of that... FL doing in Romney. 2000 would be avenged for the Rats.
