..... Well .... I think it is really becoming quite evident that the people of this country really do not care about the direction of this country as.

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.

3/ The polling averages, i.e. RCP, are actually pretty accurate...

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.

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.

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.

Pathetic.

We are going to win Ohio, Florida and so the election.It depends of these 2 states(always has been about them).

I like your optimism. "Fear is useless, trust is what is needed". I pray He will see Romney to victory tonight.

50/48 Ohio with 58% in on FOX.

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.

Simply unbelievable.

Maybe most of the nation are not political junkies like us.

“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.

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.

“O’Reilly 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).

The GOP is going to continue to do badly with women until it finds a way to answer the rape & pro-life questions in a less boneheaded manner.

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)
