So now we’re all supposed to come running back to KR just because he says something (rather late, BTW) encouraging?

Not me.

I’m lookin’ more for a bit of a landslide. But that’s just me I guess.

What Rove doesn’t point out is the massive over-sampling of Democrat groups in these national and state polls. If you back that out, I don’t see how the Messiah breaks 47%. My take: Romney 53-46, about 330 EVs.

“Romney 51, Obama 48 is good enough”

Even to overcome voter fraud?.............That’s what most worries me.

I’m thinking it is more like 53% (Romney) to 46% (Obama), and maybe 54% to 45%, with a Romney electoral college total of around 310, maybe 315.

5 day to go before Fundamental Restoration returns to America!

Rove’s just being cautious. I’m seeing it 54% / 45%. With much of NY, NJ, and East PA turnout depressed, and with turnout the way it is, I predict wild gnashing of teeth on the networks by 10PM on Tuesday.

I hope Menendez loses his seat too.

lol no fraud can make up hundreds of thousands of votes. If Romney had a 1 pt or .5 lead then yea..fraud would come into play.

I would be very curious to see how his past predictions have come out. The ‘toe sucker’ is predicting a landslide but we know his predictions have never been correct.

As long as Romney wins the EC vote, I want Obama to get 47%.

Not sure we'll get to 300 EV, but I can tell you with a very high degree of certainty that almost all the state polls have been wrong this year. The campaigns have their own state polls; they do not match the public polls and never have.

Just five more days until we begin to fundamentally transform America!!!:

In your best case scenario, don’t forget about Oregon. It’s close there and trending Romney.

When Romney wins the margin has got to be way bigger than that, the win must be huge.
Should be more like 60-38 (2 for everyone else)

Your “worst case” has Romney winning Wisconsin. I think a “worst case” scenario would have Romney losing there.

My 26 y/o daughter has volunteered to be a poll watcher at our polling place for the first time. She’s a bulldog. I am counting on her to not let anything untoward get past her. She is rabidly conservative, I am proud to say.

I agree... Except for the fact that he was very accurate in 2008. Called the Obama blowout while some here were still saying McCain would pull it out.

But we on the Eastside will do our part. I hope and pray that the Architect is right on this..

I think he means worst case that still has Romney winning. Without Ohio Romney needs some surprising upsets. With Ohio things get much sunnier. It looks more and more that "where goes Ohio, goes the nation". I'd love to see Romney lose Ohio and still get enough EV just to see some pollsters/oddsmakers heads explode.

I would probably flip Oregon with New Mexico if looking at best case scenario. New Mexico seems unobtainable for Romney.

On tuesday I'll be payin attention to PA. If Romney takes it, it's an early night. Except that networks will never call it, other than to say its too close to call.

Not to get into nitty-gritty, but I don't think 0 can win without both PA and OH (numerically, maybe, but realistically?). Romney could, but it'll be a longer night waiting.

It has to be O47 on election day. That will show that mittens was right about the minds he would never change, and be a clear mandate.

Jeff, on your last map, the Best Scenario, you need to flip Oregon and Washington. I see Romney winning Oregon as possible, but never Washington.

Puget Sound libtards are just too numerous. Portland, OR, has mass quantities, too, but not as such a big percentage as Washington state.

I think 51 to 48 includes voter fraud - without it it would be 53 to 46.

Philadelphia will be 120% for Obama this time, but that still might not be enough to save Pennsylvania for him.

Since you are a longtime Freeper I am encouraged by your optimism. Would love to share it. In a rational world, this would be a cakewalk for Romney (despite his flaws). But I’m deeply concerned!
