    Re: RCP Electoral Map Thread



    I don't want to be a wet blanket, but I am starting to think Romney is going to fall a bit short (in Ohio really, and without Ohio the overall odds plummet).

    Hearing that Romney/Ryan are going to campaign in Pennsylvania this weekend (versus Ohio or any other, close swing state really) makes me think they are extremely concerned about Ohio and are wildly firing away at some potential longshot paths to victory.

    I hope I am wrong, but I don't see any possible rationale for campaigning in Pennsylvania at the expense of the other battleground states other than desperation.

    Again, I am praying I am wrong.

    I'm agree and am willing to bet his internals are telling him Ohio is going Obama, thus he needs to steal another state.

    His stance on the auto bail out really hurt his momentum here.

    He can still win if he manages to steal away PA and holds on to FL.

    True, but I think Pennsylvania is a much longer shot at replacing Ohio (18) than Wisconsin (10) plus Colorado (9). I think their time could be better spent in those states, unless maybe they have written off Wisconsin as well for some reason (which I doubt).

    It just seems weird to me at this stage. I just don't think they have a chance to steal Pennsylvania with a single weekend of campaigning. They may have had some shot if they had targeted it earlier, but at this hour it seems like a futile effort, imo.

    Plus I have a feeling tomorrow's jobs report is going to be another one with a drastic and illusory drop in the unemployment rate. Hopefully it will be enough of a drop that a signficant number of people dismiss it as "rigged," lol.

    Not according to things I am reading. Romney early voting may have wiped out Obama's entire ev from 2008, and I think people are overexaggerating the auto bailout thing, especially now that Fiat is talking about Jeep in China and Italy.

    I think if Romney thought he was going to lose Ohio he would put more into Wi, Mi, and NV. And if Obama really thought he had Ohio, Jay-Z wouldn't be heading there.

    Keep faith guys.

    Re: RCP Electoral Map Thread

    Romney is still ahead in Penn by +3 and has outspent OBY
    by $11M so he's going back in for the kill. TV just said OBY
    hasn't even been on the air in PA figuring it was automatic for him.

    Dick just said that Mitt will win Penn and election will be determined before the Ohio votes are counted. Mitt leads in Col and Va and he will get New Hampshire and Fla where a GOP ad links Castro with Chavez and OBY. Chavez of course said he'd vote for OBY because he is his friend.

    Thats not cool with Cuban Americans.

    As I posted above, Mitt is already leading in the early voting
    in Ohio but Mitt won't need it with Fla and Penn and then
    the other states he's currently leading in.

    Dick said OBY made a colossal mistake thinking he had a firewell
    in PA since it hasn't voted GOP since 1988, but Mitt jumped
    over that wall.

    The Times poll surveyed 38% DEMs and only 29% GOPs so it's
    bogus. It's not a valid sample.

    Dick can't wait to go back on O'Rawley and say I told you so.

    BTW, one station said race is close because of the billions
    spent by the Super Pacs.

    Obama is spending the entire DAY in Ohio tomorrow. That is not a sign of a campaign that thinks they have wrapped up the state.

    Well, yeah, I think Ohio is definitely close. I can see both sides spending the rest of the time there. But what I can't see is deciding to go to PA vs. trying to win Ohio. I guess other than the fact they are right next to each other and there won't be much time wasted in the trip to and from. But still, the whole ball of wax is Ohio, imo.

    And Air Flacco, where are you getting that Romney is up by 3 in PA? I see no such polls and generally keep my eyes open for new state polls.

    Re: RCP Electoral Map Thread

    Here you go man. HR posted this link back on p. 4 of this thread
    showing Mitt with a 49-45% lead. That's a 4-pt not 5 but Rasmussen
    gave him a 5 pt lead in PA before the storm.

    He gave him a 3 pt lead in Ohio after the storm.

    OBYs going to OHio because Mitt is clobbering him in the early
    voting and it is believed he is winning in the absentee ballots sent
    in by the military over seas. They hate him.

    Mitt was also in Ohio during the storm scoring more points by
    physically collecting canned goods and food items for the hurricane
    victims while OBY was in NY and NJ. That was good for his cause
    but he's losing Ohio at the moment and PA.

    Dick Morris also said last night on TV Mitt had jumped over
    OBYs firewell in PA and FLA and PA would give Mitt the election
    before the Ohio votes are even counted. That's because the
    absentee ballots won't even be counted until 10 days after the
    election according to Ohio law.



    Here's that Examiner ink HR posted before the storm.

    _______________________________
    The Washington Examiner with a poll it conducted for state party officials that shows Romney with a 49 percent to 45 percent lead over President Obama.

    Re: RCP Electoral Map Thread

    BTW, I just saw on real clear where OBY is winning in Maryland by +19.

    No kidding.

    That's why I say our votes don't even count. MD
    always goes to the DEM.

    We can help Mitt win the popular vote but
    not the electoral vote which is most important.

    That Damn Jefferson. He duped Americans thinking they had a voice. They were un-educated and only the rich could read and write at the time and Jefferson didn't trust them to make such an important decision like choosing the President so he came up with the Electoral College.

    The states decide it and even there it's the biggest states. The
    DEM candidates get the biggest states with the most votes like
    Calif, NY, Ill, PA and so forth. The GOP will get the western
    and southern states with smaller populations. Just look at the last few maps.

    BTW, after the Civil War the south always voted DEM until the
    50s when IKE ran and got them but when LBJ pushed the Civl
    Rights Bill thru they said he just gave the South to the GOP and
    he did. Even McCain got most of the south but not FLA, NC or VA.
    Mitt is leading in NC and VA and FLA is a dead heat but look at
    all the southern counties McCain got while losing. Look at all those
    western counties he got. He got most of the counties in the US but
    lost to the bigger states that really mattered.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv...scounties.html


    This race is close because Mitt is doing well in VA, NC, and its
    tight in FLA. Gore lost the WH when W got FLA's electoral votes.



    The only way the GOP wins the White HOuse is when conservative
    DEMs vote for them like they did with Nixon, Reagan, H and W Bush.

    GOP candidates have done well in the south because they are
    basically conservative. You have the Blue Dogs in congress from
    the south keeping the libbies in check although they voted for
    OBUMMER CARE but they were the last ones to vote for it holding
    out for a while. They kept OBY from passing it in his first year
    which he should have with just a few GOPs in congress.

    Many of us think they should amend the constitution so there is
    just one vote - the popular vote and to hell with the Elect
    College but it will never happen.

    Then all our votes will truly count. The country is literate now.
    99% of Americans over 15 can read and write. BTW, in Russia
    it's 99.5% and 100% in Norway.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of..._literacy_rate


    Well, that's your history lesson for today-lol.

    Obama's trend up continues.

    Tied up in the latest Rasmussen poll.

    Not a great time for Mitt to lose steam.

    Agreed, this has been a crazy race.

    If Obama wins or loses, my main concern is what is going to happen wiht the coming fiscal cliff. If he wins he's likely not to budge on the "tax cuts for the rich" and if he loses I see it the same way. We're f'ed regardless the way I see it.

    This concerns me a little, but that is a "Sandy" bump I think. I don't think Mitt is losing steam.

    Plus keep a couple things in mind.

    1) The media all of a sudden can't keep the lid on Benghazi anymore. Jake Tapper started something here.

    2) Images of New York and New Jersey may start making Obama's photo op look very bad over the weekend.

    3) Early voting in Ohio for Obama is down, and reports are 15% in Cleveland and Cincinatti alone: http://www.nationalreview.com/campai...nd-cincinnati#

    4) Crowds for Obama are now in the 2,000 - 4,000 range in Ohio. Mitt Romney is slated to have 50,000 tonight, and has somewhere in the 15,000 range in his Wisconsin rally today.

    5) Even tied, Obama has yet to hit 50% in Rasmussen or Gallup.

    Don't give up just yet.
