Unskewed polls.com Nate Silver is clueless GOP vote underestimated/DEM vote overestimated Anything Dick Morris says Groundswell of anger at Obama Bradley effect Romney had momentum PA was winnable WI was winnable
Well, they got it. All we can do now is sit back and watch.
Yep. Many otherwise normal, likable and successful people I see on Facebook really think women were going to lose their rights. We ignore these charges and they are now kicking our ass. It is absurd that women fall for that, but if we don’t argue it, they’ll believe it.
GOP lost presidency because the candidate did not have fire in the belly until too late (first debate). Nor did he express a clear and concise view of his principles or his plan (as Reagan did). People will vote for the devil they know rather than one that waffles.
Contrary to popular wisdom, GOP did not lose senate in 2010 and 2012 because candidates were too conservative. They lost because tea party nominated too many dumbkopf women in 2010 and too many stupid men in 2012. If you are too stupid to handle a press interview or debate question with MSM reporters we don’t need you in the senate. We need intelligent people like Paul Ryan who can articulate their plans and dodge idiotic questions about rape, who don’t dabble in witchcraft, etc.
The tea party is shooting itself in the foot, because people are blaming the message, not the messengers.
everyone who can...
votes anti white
i have tried to explain this here for 12 years but whites...northern ones in Becky land just don’t get it
we have created a culture where anyone not white is to be thought of as a victim of white oppression
and the vast majority do
it has crippled our ability to deal with any problem from immigration to urban crime to illegitimacy to Islam
and now the demographics are insurmountable
Asians voted 9 points higher this time than 2008 for Democrats
only bright side...white young kids voted for Romney 51%...8 point bump from 2008
still...i bet even Vietnamese voted Obama maybe
Perhaps a mixed twisted messages lets people down, too?
What exactly is the conservative agenda?
We are against homosexuals in the military, we are against homosexual marriage but we like homosexuals when they agree with us and tell us what we want to hear?
It is a schizophrenic mess in my opinion.
So do we decide we accept homosexuals because it is what we believe or it will win us elections?
Ann Coulter seems to think that is the way to go.
The whole thing is hypocritical as is.
I am not saying one way or the other but as it is, it is stupid r-tard B.S. FAKE.
Solved got his 08 numbers from the Obama internals. Likely did the same this time.
Asians should be voting R. Must be some fake racism claim at work.
that right-wingers should do presidential politics instead of dealing with the state house.
(Let the RINOs obsess over all thing prezidential.) What a waste of time all this ROMNEY crap was.
Another myth - independents were huge with Romney and the remaining undecideds would break heavily to him.
Blacks won’t turn out. Only 80% will vote Obama.
PA was in play.
Ryan will bring a state or two. Not even WI was picked up.
Gender gap is gone.
Dick Morris. Clueless.
Poll watching will help.
We can destroy all the myths, but people will create new ones in their place. That’s how people deal with unthinkable ideas.
I am honestly believing that we need to split up into two different countries -- the situation has gotten beyond repair and reconciliation.
Even the Northeast RINOs don't seem to care - the entire GOP acts like responding to that characterization is beneath them.
Republicans have a huge message problem - they strongly desire to use government power to control behavior they don't like, but they still want to pretend they are the defenders of American liberty. The voters (quite correctly) are not buying it, but they are buying the Democrats' doing the exact same thing because it comes wrapped in free stuff.
when our communist thug was elected, i feared a fdr model.
Horrible economics and he won 4 straight elections.
I am sooo depressed, i can’t even imagine what this place will look like in 4 years.
Demographics are horrible, it will be very difficult for anyone do to a better job than mitt did.

Agreed. Grim doesn’t describe it well enough.
I would not disagree entirely with that analysis, but don’t
be too hasty to throw the Tea Party under the bus. They did
support Ted Cruz and he won.
Akin and Mourdock are idiots.
Spot on wardaddy. And we only 60% of the white vote. The answer is not to kowtow to the Latino population and open borders and let the country go socialist, but to more or less unify the white vote... well, increase our white vote.
Closest pollster PPP, and NBC Wallstreet Journal. Worst pollster, Rasmussen and ARG.
I guess Silver was right. It is also looking like he nailed popular vote. Dick Morris and Karl Rove needs to explain themselves. I guess I skewed polls better skew them back.
If I never again hear the words - poll/s, polling, pollster - I will live a happy life.
