    We all knew the corrupt media polls were BS. Now thanks to Wikileaks we know our assumptions were correct. The media was working with Hillary Clinton to release bogus weighted polls that show Hillary ahead of Trump. And then step two was to declare the election over.
  • [October 23, 2016 11:50 PM ] New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through "Oversampl

    Earlier this morning we wrote about the obvious sampling bias in the latest ABC / Washington Post poll that showed a 12-point national advantage for Hillary. Like many of the recent polls from Reuters, ABC and The Washington Post, this latest poll included a 9-point sampling bias toward registered democrats. And that's how you manufacture a 12-point lead for your chosen candidate and effectively chill the vote of your opposition.
  • Leaked Monmouth U. polling memo: Democrats ‘despondent’; Hillary..., seen as a ‘lying harpy’

    The Florida geography is also working against us. Hillary has 53+ Field Offices and they’re empty of volunteers. This lack of enthusiasm is showing up in the voting responses and it’s killing us. The “cell phones” rationale will only hold out for so long.

    The media-inspired polls have to be cooked. So many evidences are present that people are fed up with the lies of government, the polls can NOT be accurate. More than likely, the media wants the public to follow the election through their services so they can sell advertising. A close, controversial election provides viewership and sells ads. May a little simplistic, but that's my story and I'm sticking to it. Nevertheless, any other outcome than what I want and the other side cheated. That's going to be the cry anyway.

  • Internal Polls Show Close Romney Lead

    Internal polling leaked to the media today show a close but definitive lead for the Romney campaign. Toby Harnden at the Daily Mail got the scoop: Mitt Romney is ahead by a single percentage point in Ohio - the swing state that could well decide the election - according to internal polling data provided to MailOnline by a Republican party source. Internal campaign polling completed on Sunday night by campaign pollster Neil Newhouse has Romney three points up in New Hampshire, two points up in Iowa and dead level in Wisconsin. Most startlingly, the figures show Romney and Obama deadlocked...

    "I think the intensity is on our side this year," said Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, perhaps the most effective campaigner for Mitt Romney, as he shook hands Thursday afternoon with volunteers and supporters in a suburban Cincinnati restaurant. "Theirs is not what it was in 2008." Portman was visiting the Firehouse Grill to campaign not only for Romney but also for Brad Wenstrup, the local Republican favored to win a seat representing Ohio's 2nd District in Congress. After the event, Portman came over to a table where my laptop displayed the RealClearPolitics average of Ohio polls. There were nine polls...

    If you were expecting a cliff hanger, you still could get one, but really it’s Romney and it likely won’t be close. There are a few reasons why I think that. We will delve into those, but we will also look at the voting datapoints provided by pollster Chris Wilson that say an Obama win just isn’t in the cards.First, let’s list my “feelings” as to why I don’t think Obama will win.Obama hasn’t delivered. On anything. Except perhaps bankrupting anyone who wants to operate coal-fired power plants. Oh, and keeping gas prices high. And apologizing to rest of the...

    If you're reading this, you've almost made it through the Obama years. God knows it hasn't been easy holding on this long. If you're like me, there were days you felt as if you'd aged ten years, just trying to bitterly cling to your leaky life raft. Maybe you're one of the 23 million Americans who are unemployed, under-employed, or who have given up looking for work. Who can blame you for despairing, when two-thirds of the jobs in the last four years have gone to new immigrants, many of them illegals? But don't worry if, like one out of...

This is HUGE. 3 Nov 12 ReplyRetweetFavorite Whoa. This is huge; early voting numbers show a swing of over 250,000 in voter turn-out. In the GOP’s favor! Ken Gardner@kesgardner Karl Rove: GOP net gain in early voting in Ohio from 4 years ago is enough to wipe out Obama's entire 260,000 margin of victory in 2008.

    Washington Examiner ^ | 11/4/12 | Paul Bedard
    In a remarkable reversal of fortune for President Obama in Ohio, the GOP has closed the huge gap in absentee ballot requests used by early voters that favored the Democrats and the president in 2008, setting up what one state analyst said could be a Mitt Romney blowout on Election Day. While in 2008, 33 percent of the 1,158,301 absentee ballots went to Democrats and just 19 percent to registered Republicans, a 14-point gap, this year 29 percent are being requested by Democrats and 24 percent by Republicans, a five-point gap. And in a sign that the enthusiasm of 2008...

    National Review ^ | 11/4/12 |  Victor Davis Hanson
    The storm for a week diverted attention away from the growing Mitt Romney wave, and for a time highlighted the president, replete in bomber jacket, as presidential in directing relief efforts, as news understandably went silent on the huge Romney crowds and another dismal jobs report, and turned instead to administration officials appearing engaged and busy — all critical for both turnout and a key 3—5 percent of the voters who probably have not yet made up their minds. It is hard to calibrate the effect, but Romney seemed last week to be slipping 1–3 percent in many of the...

    Politico ^ | 11/3/12 5:22 PM EST | CHARLES MAHTESIAN
    Michael Barone, a senior political analyst for the Washington Examiner and co-author of the Almanac of American Politics, goes out on a limb and predicts victory for Mitt Romney – by a margin of nearly 100 electoral votes. Fundamentals usually prevail in American elections. That's bad news for Barack Obama. True, Americans want to think well of their presidents and many think it would be bad if Americans were perceived as rejecting the first black president.But it's also true that most voters oppose Obama's major policies and consider unsatisfactory the very sluggish economic recovery -- Friday's jobs report showed...

    ANALYSIS/OPINION: Four days out, it looks like Mitt Romney. October has come and gone with no surprise, with just a slow, plodding accumulation of signs and portents suggesting that “the One” who has come will soon be gone. The polls are tight, and the numbers are steady, but it begins to feel like 1980 again, when a tight race between President Carter and Ronald Reagan broke open over the last weekend. His own pollsters went to Mr. Jimmy and Miss Rosalynn on Monday morning to tell them that “the numbers just aren’t there.” If President Obama has taken such a...

    Political polling guru Nate Silver is so confident in his statistical models that he just offered to bet MSNBC's Joe Scarborough $1,000 that Barack Obama will win re-election. Scarborough, you may recall, criticized Silver's math earlier this week, saying that "Anybody that thinks that this race is anything but a tossup right now is such an ideologue ... they're jokes." He was specifically talking about Silver's FiveThirtyEight website, which shows Mitt Romney with just a 1-in-4 chance of becoming president. RELATED: FiveThirtyEight Says Obama Is in Command ...

    Does anyone believe that when Barack Obama loses on November 6, he will go quietly? This election is shaping up to be a landslide loss for the president, and by the ever-present look of desperation on his face, he knows it. The nation should be preparing for how he might react when it happens -- there is nothing more dangerous than a cornered god. In 2008, Americans wholeheartedly bought the Obama dream. It's never easy to let go of a dream, but today, people have let go of Obama the dream -- and on November 6, they will let go...

    Mitt Romney’s lead in national polls — which he’s enjoyed since the first presidential debate — soon should be seen in individual battleground-state polls, strong evidence that Romney will win the Nov. 6 election, Republican strategist Karl Rove said on “Fox News Sunday.” And because the state polls reflect the national mood, Romney may begin to see states such as Minnesota, Michigan, and Pennsylvania come into play for his electoral vote count, Rove said. “If the margin is as big nationally as it appears in these national polls, then you will have the state polls follow,” he said. “Now we...
