Hope, growth, and opportunity!

It’s the only thing I can ever remember from his run in 1996. I’ve always wondered why he never tried again.

The senate is within our grasp if early turnout reports are correct. This could be a great night!

I agree with Forbes.

MI will go to Obama because of Detroit and Ann Arbor.

So, when Romney wins, is he gonna recreate the “Dewey Defeats Truman” pose by holding an iPad displaying Nate Silver’s blog?

Steve Forbes cites the enthusiasm for Romney as a factor.

Steve Forbes also stated why the polls are off -- the mistakes the polling folks are making.

Steve Forbes is calling for Romney/Ryan for President/Vice President.

Steve Forbes is calling for the Republicans to get control of the senate.

And the House will probably be strongly Republican.

If Steve is correct, I wonder how bad this whipping will be on the Democratic Party.

The Democratic Party was saying the Tea Party is history.

Maybe the Tea Party can start replacing the Democratic Party...

I hope Romney creates an "Office of the President Elect" just to rub obummer's nose in it until January :-)

Not just Nate Silver. I want the entire media to pay. They tried to steal this election by covering up everything negative for Obama. The economy, Benghazi.....they repeated his many lies about the auto bailout, the death of Al Qaida......on and on and on. Then they came out with all their baloney polls to try and seal it. I want blood.

..just got word from family back in Texas with connections to the oil industry

The president of a particular oil company was invited to get on his jet and fly to Boston tonight for Romney's victory party--sounds like they are extremely confident...

The best solution would be for the House to re-establish the old Committee on Un-American Activities. I would suggest Allen West for Chairman.

The first order of business would be a congressional investigation of the Mainstream Media and the polling organizations.

Telegenic. This country will never again elect a president who doesn't look good on TV. Yes, we have become this shallow.

Steve Forbes analysis only makes sense in this day and age. Obama and the dems want to give us backwards ass socialism which translates to CONTROL and America does not want failed systems fiscally or socially. A little gov’t here and there is fine, but Obama and his ilk are WAY over the top with collectivism and Americans recognize this as the wrong road to take!

I voted for him. There was someone else who did too, but I've never been able to track him down.

Lame SNL sketch back in the 90s when Mr Forbes was co-host. They were reviewing his “novel” about fictional character Teve Torbes.

Had the pleasure to meet this man once, on a plane in Texas. He was patient and kind to my wife, and spoke very well (2000, I think, not 1996). Unfortunately, his TV persona came off poorly.

Telegenic.

Yep - that’s been true for awhile now.
It’s a shame, but think about it.

Visuals either draw you in or put you off.

I HAVE BEEN PUT OFF BY OBUMPO’S FACE AND VOICE SINCE ABOUT AUG. 2009, EIGHT MONTHS AFTER INAUGURATION, REALIZING HE WAS ON TV ALMOST DAILY, YAMMERING AND HOLLERIN’ AT ME ABOUT ONE THING OR ANOTHER - SOUNDING LIKE A DICTATOR.
SO VERY VERY UNPRESIDENTIAL

Wrote that to my newspaper, the Ventura Star - it was printed, leaving out ‘dictator.’

GOODBYE, MEGAPHONE MOUTH

I don’t listen to any of them for a reason. None of them are actually out in the wild, so to speak.

I have a sinking feeling that once the gas prices fell almost 60 cents in the past 3 weeks that Romney wasn’t winning Ohio.

Mitt Romney will win big tonight.

What the hell have you been smoking Steve? What a disaster for the USA!

Clinton made it acceptable to wag his finger at the populace and lie and now Obama has made it acceptable to fail at a job and be retained without consequence. What wonderful examples those two POS are to the youth of this country and the people of the world. SPIT!!!!!!!

????? Polls were 100 percent accurate mostly. I am not sure what you are trying to say here.

Mitt Romney will win big tonight. His popular vote margin will be between 3 – 5%. He will win the Electoral College I believe by a vote of 321 to 217, and with luck, even more. He will win all of the states McCain carried in 2008 which will give him 180 electoral votes. He will also carry the three states that normally go Republican that in 2008 went for Obama – Indiana, North Carolina and Virginia. That brings him to 219. He will also take Florida, which will bring him to 248 votes. Although the Obama campaign will deny it, it effectively wrote off Virginia and Florida several days ago.

Despite intense efforts, Obama will lose both Ohio and Pennsylvania. In Ohio the voter turnout for Republicans will be more like 2004 instead of 2008. Southeastern Ohio has a number of evangelical voters and the area also has a coal industry. Romney should win the state by up to 200,000 votes. He will also win Pennsylvania where he has not been damaged by a long-lasting barrage of negative ads.

Romney should also win narrowly in New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Iowa and Colorado. He even has a chance to take Nevada. That gives him 321 electoral votes.

I haven't seen a spectacularly wrong prediction like this since the days of "Criswell Predicts".
