Sunday Morning Open Thread

We're close, morons. Very, very close.

I have good intel from a very reliable source that at least one of the "expand the map" states that Romney and Ryan are chasing now looks like it could fall our way.

Click here to phone bank from home for the campaign and help make this happen.

And if you want a good laugh, that numbskull from CNBC Jim Cramer predicted Obama will get 440 EVs. That isn't even remotely within the realm of possibility. If he says buy, you sell; if he says sell, you buy. Got it?

12 Repeating from the bottom of the overnight thread, just bevause I'm psyched.

The sky in Philly is completely cloudless and the most perfect blue I
can remember. The sun is low, and everything is in sharp focus, bright
and golden. It's still cold, but going up to 49 degrees this afternoon,
with little wind.

I have my ticket printed out for the rally, and
my train tickets in hand. I'm going up early, and hoping to find a nice
lunch somewhere between the station and the rally site. I'm told that
the West Trenton trains are usually empty on a Sunday, but should be
standing room only today. I have an outfit that is warm without
sacrificing cuteness, and I'm forgoing my affected American accent to
show the world that the Ds don't have a monopoly on immigrant voters.

I'm going to hang out with the next President of the United States and 20 thousand friends today.

71 "You promised me Obama wouldn't get a big, fat bounce out of Sandy. The skinny little bastard clearly did."

What are you talking about? Obama was ahead by 1 the last time that Battleground poll was run. It is a 1 point move toward Romney, not Obama.

Here is my post from 10/29 about it:

Battleground Poll - October 29, 2012

Likely Voter, 1000 sample size, Obama leads 49-48, 3% undecided.

This poll is surprising a of people, since Brit Hume said on the air yesterday that it would report Romney +5 today. Let's look at the details and the reweights, then I'll make a comment or two. First of all, the D/R/I of this poll remains the same as last time at D+2 or 43/41/18. There was also a significant shift in Independent preference from Obama +1 to Romney +10. However, Obama picked up 2 points of support, and Romney lost 1.

Putting these results through the models, we get the following:

O+1 - Current result
O+2.3 - 2008 turnout
O+0.2 - D+3 turnout
R+1.7 - 2010 turnout
R+1.7 - 2004 turnout
R+3.2 - Rasmussen Party ID

This poll is showing solid gains for Obama in the last week across all turnout models.

Computer voting using proprietary software that is only fully utilized every four years and is only tested in company labs--what could possibly go wrong?


I think that the Republican party should be encouraging voters to videotape their voting process to document this effect if indeed it is real. Anecdotal evidence is just anecdotal evidence, but videotape is at least a documented sort of proof!

Here is something I think the pollsters and many pundits are missing.

In 2004 and 2008, Democrats did register a huge number of new voters. They registered almost a million new onesjust in PA. A lot of them were fardulnt, ginnedup by ACORN and like groups because Democrats were paying them by the registration. But most of them were real people....just not real people who actually give a shit about voting.

These people are not voting. If they were, Pat Toomey and Tom Corbett would never have won in 2010. In fact, there is statistically no reason to believe a Republican will ever win a statewide election in PA.

But they're on the rolls, so the pollsters think they have to sample for them and the pundits think they will be voting on Tuesday. This is why you always see a D+8 or more sample for PA polls. Such polls are garbage.

I think the same is true in Ohio, Florida, and North Carolina. Lots and lots of registered but inactive Democrats were put on the rolls in 2004 and 2008.

92 New York Dumocrat Governor Cumo is comtemplating allowing 20 days for voting in NY. Guess he has read that radical rag, Constitution of the United States:
Section 1:Clause 4: Election day

The Congress may determine the Time of chusing [sic] the Electors, and the Day on which they shall give their Votes; which Day shall be the same throughout the United States.


Congress sets a national Election Day.
Currently, Electors are chosen on the Tuesday following the first
Monday in November, in the year before the President's term is to
expire. The Electors cast their votes on the Monday following the second
Wednesday in December of that year. Thereafter, the votes are opened
and counted by the Vice President, as President of the Senate, in a joint session of Congress.

110 "All the polls show Romney is really losing and we are just propping ourselves up."

All the polls? Really? The RCP average only has Romney down a tenth of a point, and that's rather meaningless given that RCP averages the polls after numbers have been rounded to the nearest percentage. Rasmussen has Romney up nearly a point, but because of rounding, it appears tied at 48. Plus, RCP uses an unweighted average. If you weight by sample size, and you should, Romney is up by about a point. Last I checked there was a correlation of .85 between sample size and the size of the Romney lead. All the small samples have Obama leading, the larger ones have Romney leading.

123 Reading the NY Slimes in my hotel room:

Libya Attack Shows Pentagon’s Limits in Region By Michael R. Gordon and Eric Schmitt

WASHINGTON — About three hours after the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, came under attack, the Pentagon issued an urgent call for an array of quick-reaction forces, including an elite Special Forces team that was on a training mission in Croatia.

The team dropped what it was doing and prepared to move to the Sigonella naval air station in Sicily, a short flight from Benghazi and other hot spots in the region. By the time the unit arrived at the base, however, the surviving Americans at the Benghazi mission had been evacuated to Tripoli, and Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were dead.

The assault, on the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States, has already exposed shortcomings in the Obama administration’s ability to secure diplomatic missions and act on intelligence warnings. But this previously undisclosed episode, described by several American officials, points to a limitation in the capabilities of the American military command responsible for a large swath of countries swept up in the Arab Spring.

At the heart of the issue is the Africa Command, established in 2007, well before the Arab Spring uprisings and before an affiliate of Al Qaeda became a major regional threat. It did not have on hand what every other regional combatant command has: its own force able to respond rapidly to emergencies — a Commanders’ In-Extremis Force, or C.I.F.

To respond to the Benghazi attack, the Africa Command had to borrow the C.I.F. that belongs to the European Command, because its own force is still in training. It also had no AC-130 gunships or armed drones readily available.

As officials in the White House and Pentagon scrambled to respond to the torrent of reports pouring out from Libya — with Mr. Stevens missing and officials worried that he might have been taken hostage — they took the extraordinary step of sending elite Delta Force commandos, with their own helicopters and ground vehicles, from their base at Fort Bragg, N.C., to Sicily. Those troops also arrived too late.

“The fact of the matter is these forces were not in place until after the attacks were over,” a Pentagon spokesman, George Little, said on Friday, referring to a range of special operations soldiers and other personnel. “We did respond. The secretary ordered forces to move. They simply were not able to arrive in time.”

129 November 4, 2012 Analysis

Polls included:

Tracking Polls
R+0.8 - Rasmussen Daily Track
R+5 - Gallup
O+1.3 - IBD/Tipp
Even - ABC/WaPo

Others
O+1 - Battleground
Even - Pew
R+1 - NPR
O+1 - CBS/NYT
Even - Fox
O+5 - National Journal

O+0.15% - Current RCP Average
O+0.73% - Average using the 2008 turnout model
R+2.05% - Average using the D+3 turnout model
R+4.28% - Average using the 2010 turnout model
R+4.33% - Average using the 2004 turnout model
R+6.06% - Average using the Rasmussen Party ID turnout model

Average Democrat advantage across all polls: D+4.16

The national polls continue to show a tie. They also continue to assume a Democrat turnout advantage of over 4 points. I think we can safely say that if the Democrats are able to turnout 5,200,000 more voters than Republicans, then the race will indeed be close. As I said yesterday, I view such a turnout advantage to be very unlikely. I believe that as we moved closer to the election, too many Obama voters were making it through the likely voter screens by falsely claiming to have already voted. This was especially prevalent in state polls, but it also is affecting national polls.

The only polls that released new numbers were Rasmussen and ABC/WaPo. Rasmussen showed no change, while Independent support for Romney returned to +4. ABC/WaPo dropped into a tie. This was because their sample expanded back to D+4. Oddly, they also found that Independents have no preference, with equal support for Obama and Romney, an 8 point swing in one day. I believe this result to be unlikely, but I included their result in the averages.

Overall, my conclusions from yesterday remain the same. If turnout is D+3 or better for the GOP, then Romney will win the election.

Tomorrow everyone will be releasing final polls. I intend to post analysis of their results, and make a final prediction.

The election workers did not allow Rubin to vote and reported the
incident to the Clark County registrar, who notified the secretary of
state.




An investigation was launched by the Nevad’smulti-jurisdictional Elections Integrity Task Force.

Rubin, 56, lives in Henderson and is a registered Republican, according to the Clark County registrar’s office.

Rubin was arrested around 4 p.m. at the Riviera hotel-casino, the Las
Vegas Review-Journal reported. She was charged with one felony count of
voting more than once in the same election.

183 Im laughing at fools like Doom? and Samwise because they are relying on state polls with +6/+7/+8 Dem samples that are based on 2008 turnout. Many of the polls are small samples and from relatively unknown pollsters. (University of New England) for example in NH...bwahaha.

I'll take my chances with a more reasonable +4 Dem/+3 Dem advantage in polls this time around and I will also stick to the pollsters with a track record of being around for a few years with a proven record.

National polls that show it tied are more likely indicative of where we are, they are using larger samples and have better party ID weighting that is more true to what we are going to see for turnout.

Is it close, hell yes. Its all about turnout now...get out and vote and bring your friends/neighbors as well..make calls at the Victory Center and then laugh at these "concern" trolls like Doom? and Samwise. It isn't in the bag one way or another at all.

184 I've long been opposed to what I viewed as what would be a Quixotic and ultimately failed pitch for PA, but even I'm starting to see the possibilities there. Susquehanna is a PA specialty polling service and they have it tied 47-47. Team Obama is sending Bill Clinton there on Monday and is spending money there too, so ipso facto the state must seriously be in play. Obviously if Romney wins PA this election is all but over except for the crying and acting out on the left.

Regarding Jim Cramer's asinine electoral predictions they're no more asinine than his preposterous business predictions. Dude back in '08 was touting Bear Stearns as a great investment literally up until the week in which it collapsed and went under.

And why are the polls so tight?

There is perhaps no time in electoral history where a tight voter screen is necessary. The last election brought a significant number of first timers due to the exceptional nature of Obama's stature as the first black president. Simply put, it was a one time event. Even if Obama performed well there likely wouldn't have been the same turnout. But with the U rate near 8% the percentage of those that will regurtitate to a pollster their previous vote, but who have no intention of going out there will be just as exceptional as Obama's first turnout.

All the anecdotal evidence....all of it, confirms this. How many prominent (and not so prominent) liberals have you heard saying they are not voting Obama this time? How many editorial boards have switched? How small are Obama's crowds this time compared to the last?

Those two Colorado professors who predicted a Romney landlide months ago were not clairvoyants. They had a model based on a simple "bread and butter" dynamic. When the U rate is about 5.6% or so in a state, voters tend to oust the incumbant. America is not doing very well, so our incumbant will be ousted. It's that simple. Media spin notwithstanding.

My Romney 305 EV prediction was a conservative one. It would not surprise me in the least to see it go much higher than that.

222 I fired this off this morning to my Rep.
Comments on how to improve are welcome.
Will resend till I get an acknowledgement.

Dear Honorable __________,

I am urging you and your fellow Congressman to bring the responsible parties for the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi to justice. And by responsible parties, I mean those in our own government, both elected and non-elected.

As more information becomes available to the public, it is evident that American interests have a breach in leadership and their failure to act makes them responsible for the four deaths, and this breach is putting countless others at serious risk.

Do you plan on letting this slide if the President is defeated on Tuesday? I hope not.

Additionally, in the event the President is re-elected, I urge you and your colleagues to immediately draft a letter asking for his resignation and those advising him on foreign policy. If he does not comply, I urge you to use whatever constitutional method at your disposal to have him tried, with the implications of serving time.

This is not a small matter and it should not be allowed to stand uncorrected.

Thank you

__________

There’s still two days to go before America votes and national polls show voters remain largely undecided with nothing more than a sheet of ballot paper between Democrat Obama and Republican rival Mitt Romney.

232 In the second storefront, groups were hunched over corded telephones calling Obama supporters to recruit them for this weekend's get-out-the-vote operation, to be staged at a local pub. Sandwiches were in a back room.

Cohen, a psychotherapist, said this year's campaign feels different from 2008, when the Obama effort was practically a crusade.

"Because Barack Obama was the first African American to have the potential to be president, that was thrilling to me. This election doesn't feel thrilling to me. It feels like a necessity."

A two-member team of volunteers headed out to Leedom Street in Jenkintown, a modest neighborhood dating from the early 20th century.

Bob Wirtshafter, an energy consultant and former University of Pennsylvania professor, worked one side of the street. He said that even residents identified as Obama voters sometimes shut the door in his face.

Yeah I remember that, and when he was called on it later he claimed that he "didn't want to cause a run on the bank!"... as if a) he actually knew that Bear was going down, b) he has that kind of influence on massive movements in stock volume, and c) he knew that and gave opposite advice anyway? WTF? Isn't that against some kind of financial adviser ethical code?

There's a lot of echo-chamber reassuring going on amongst the left. They all keep turning to each other for morale boosting, and turn to Nate Silver to validate their "predictions" with "science."

My prediction is that Romney wins, and it's not close. Not necessarily a landslide, but not close.

The polling in this election has been atrocious. I think after Tuesday there's going to be a lot of pollsters and media outlets with a lot of egg on their faces. D+whatever numbers comparable to 08? Really guys? Delusional.

236 @101: I saw in the comments on some European site that someone linked to yesterday where a guy was claiming he'd put over $11,000 on TFG in InTrade and was confident he'd win.

So there's another mental image to keep in mind when they call the race: Eurotrash losing a ton of money and getting beaten by their wives.

Romney has a better chance at winning than we do of taking the Senate, and he isnt going to win and everyone knows it.

Most polls show the GOP will not be taking the Senate and Romney wont win. You cant simply discount every single poll because you dont like them. Every poll can not be wrong, sorry.

If at least half the polls showed it was good for Romney and the GOP id be with you, but they dont. A couple weeks ago, some were trending in our favor, and you all loved it. Now that they arent, suddenly you think they are bs. If you have to try and get all scientific to say "if you look deeper, the polls really show us we are winning", then you just arent facing reality.

I wasnt big on reading forums and comments back in 2008, but im willing to bet you same people were doing the same thing back then, trying anyway you could to say polls were crap and really showed McCain winning when clearly they didnt.

243 If Romney's leading with independents and even with women (as recent polls have said), there's no way he can reasonably lose. The only way to make up those losses would be for JEF to have a massive turnout advantage, and who the fuck could believe that's going to happen?

Obama Expected to Win Ohio, Say YouGov/Xbox Poll Respondents

while slightly more respondents said they intend to vote for Romney, a majority of the same respondents said they expect Obama to win. And here’s the twist: According to economist David Rothschild, “when the intention (i.e., support) and expectation of respondents in a poll point in opposite directions, the expectation is correct over 75 percent of the time.”

Matt Peckham Time




So, even if Romney is leading in a poll, we're just going to go ahead and count it for Obama. M'kay?

Oh, and:

YouGov/Xbox is the poll Microsoft and YouGov have been running through Xbox LIVE.

So it's more meaningless than most.

260 Neil Oxman, a veteran Democratic consultant, sees the election coming down to middle-income voters in older, near-in suburban communities like Havertown in Delaware County.

He imagines a couple in St. Denis Parish, Irish or Italian, in their 40s, living modestly with a home and cars they can afford - but feeling insecure about their future.

Both voted for Obama in 2008, as he imagines them. "The man has now gone" over to Romney. And the woman "is on fence."

b. About ten years ago I took my first big long stock options position in a particular issue the exact day Cramer recommended a strong sell. Didn't know, and when I found out, I didn't care, since it was patently obvious that the guy didn't know what he was talking about. 4 weeks later I was up 150%.

Ohio wasn't Obama's firewall preventing general collapse, it was Nate Silver. Media narrative and all.

How we ever allowed the idea that the electorate would remain D+7 or greater amazes me when that shift from 2004 was based on a Republican loss of 5% and a Obama enrolled new voters surge of 2%. Yet, it that same loose LV screen which basically means most polls are effectively of RV's underlies every motherfucking poll.

Most Wisconsin polls show Obama winning. I saw a PPP poll yesterday that showed Obama up big in Pennsylvania. So where do you see all these polls that show Romney winning?
I look at this guy NumbersMuncher on twitter. Always posting polls, and most show Obama ahead, though he tries to "break them down" and twist them into really saying Romney is ahead or "close". If we have to do that to give us hope, do we really believe Romney has a chance?

317 What do we do if Obumbles stumbles to a win? Plan B?

I wonder if the Republicans will investigate some of the questionable actions the '0' has taken in his first term.

And consider impeachment proceedings.

I understand that it didn't make sense in the first term. By the time the evidence accumulated they would have only stirred up the base to vote for him -and the house and
senate. With both houses in Dem hands it would have been a (racist!!) wail in the wind.

However, the house WILL remain in 'R' hands and even if the Senate didn't convict the trial would squash any 2nd term ambitions to expand the adgenda.

319 Battleground poll has it tied up: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1112/83275.html?hp=f1

This does not make sense to me at all, maybe some of you can enlighten me:
"Independents are now split evenly, with Obama up 44 to 43 percent. A week ago, Romney had a 10-point advantage among this key demographic. The ranks of independents shrunk partly because more right-leaning voters now supporting Romney identified with the Republican Party."

Wait... what? Romney goes from leading by 10 with indies to losing by 1? Because indies are now identifying with Republicans? Assuming that is true (stay with me here), wouldn't that just shift their numbers to the R sampling number? I don't understand how this changes the polling the way they are claiming. Someone claiming to be an "I" voting for Romney, shifting their identification a week later to "R," is still a vote for Romney. It doesn't mean that Obama gains anything.

Of course, I find the premise of this to be absurd. Within a week enough "indies" all of the sudden began identifying as Republicans by such a margin to make it go from Romney +10 to Obama +1 on indies?

This makes no sense to me. Am I missing something here?

340 >> I admit that in 2008, I still thought McCain would win, contrary to what the polls were saying.

I tried to put the game face on, but I thought he was toast. There was a brief glimmer of hope in September right after he picked Palin but once that bump faded, he was done.

With Mitt, OTOH, there's simply no way to ignore the enthusiasm on our side, which translates into votes. At some point during/after the primaries, I think a lot of people on our side switched from voting against Obama to voting FOR Mitt. What did it for me was the Ryan pick, which assuaged my fears that he was going to play it safe against Obama and "lose with honor" like McCain.

Now read the link in the sidebar about Obama underperforming McCain's '08 rallies in Ohio on crowd size and then square that with the polls that show Obama up one with a D+8 sample.

That's simply meaningless as a proxy for what the actual vote totals will be.

"Delta Dawn" is a song written by former child rockabilly star Larry Collins and songwriter Alex Harvey (who more often goes by the name Alexander Harvey today, and is not to be confused with the late Glaswegian rocker Alex Harvey), best known as a 1972 top ten C&W hit for Tanya Tucker and a number-one hit for Helen Reddy in 1973.

442 Repeating myself for the LICs (Low Information Commentors).

The current RCP and damn near every poll in the RCP, including Rasmussen is showing the race tied with Obama at 47.5 (average).

That average sample size among all 10 polls is D+4.16%.

In 2008, the Democrats high water mark, they turned out D+2 over their 2004 performance. Republicans stayed home and under performed R-5. In 2010 those numbers corrected and we again turned out at an Even rate.

We are tied in polls that assume that Democrats will double their over performance of 2008.

The ONLY way we lose this is if we don't show up at the polls on Tuesday.

458 Now that the apparent time-warp is over, I'm reposting this, because it don't make no sense to me:

Battleground poll has it tied up: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1112/83275.html?hp=f1

This does not make sense to me at all, maybe some of you can enlighten me:
"Independents are now split evenly, with Obama up 44 to 43 percent. A week ago, Romney had a 10-point advantage among this key demographic. The ranks of independents shrunk partly because more right-leaning voters now supporting Romney identified with the Republican Party."

Wait... what? Romney goes from leading by 10 with indies to losing by 1? Because indies are now identifying with Republicans? Assuming that is true (stay with me here), wouldn't that just shift their numbers to the R sampling number? I don't understand how this changes the polling the way they are claiming. Someone claiming to be an "I" voting for Romney, shifting their identification a week later to "R," is still a vote for Romney. It doesn't mean that Obama gains anything.

Of course, I find the premise of this to be absurd. Within a week enough "indies" all of the sudden began identifying as Republicans by such a margin to make it go from Romney +10 to Obama +1 on indies?

This makes no sense to me. Am I missing something here?

Christie knows what the media will do to him if he acts like Chiles during Andrew or Blanco during Katrina. They'll blame him for not being deferential enough. In typical Christie fashion, he overcompensated.

But I think he also knew that if he put his arm around Obama that whatever disaster was going on in the state afterwards would be blamed on the feds and not on the state.

And if you note, the opposite is happening in NY where they didn't embrace Obama.

495 Thanks for noting the 1 point loss for Obama, Dave in Fla. Didn't realize that.

Also upon further reflection I realized that part of my confusion was stupid. If a bunch of indies really did shift from I to R, I can see how Obama could then lead among the remaining I's - but it wouldn't help him in the net, since those votes are still for Romney, they have just shifted identification.

I still don't buy the idea that that many I's switched their affiliation to R within a week, however.

In the end I guess it doesn't matter, and is a wash.

502 Bill Clinton is going to PA to campaign. From that one tea leaf, I'm concluding that both campaigns know that Romney is extremely likely to have 270+ EVs.

I think the Obama campaign is trying to keep the number of lost states down so that it's a difference of just one state and they can either get lucky or litigate the last one (probably Ohio).

We need to win by more than one swing state.

507 Christie knows what the media will do to him if he acts like Chiles during Andrew or Blanco during Katrina. They'll blame him for not being deferential enough. In typical Christie fashion, he overcompensated.

But I think he also knew that if he put his arm around Obama that whatever disaster was going on in the state afterwards would be blamed on the feds and not on the state.

And if you note, the opposite is happening in NY where they didn't embrace Obama.

Posted by: AmishDude at November 04, 2012 10:02 AM (xSegX)


Don't overthink it. Christie is just a despicable, back-stabbing asshole who didn't do any favors for his state or himself. Christie's actions, so far as they benefitted anyone, did so for one single low-life scumbag and that is the Indonesian Malevolent Retard. It probably didn't even help Barky, but the Indonesian was the only possible beneficiary of Christie's pathetic douchbagedness and assault on America a week before the election that will determine whether this nation even has a chance to be restored.

I would also venture that Christie's anti-gun silliness will not be welcomed very much in the future as Jersey-ites have seen, up close and personal, the importance of being able to defend themselves while their government jerks itself off in public.

526 Tied polls are great motivators for Republican voters. They give those voters very good reasons not to stay home, and those voters will believe their votes will really affect the outcome.
There is a sociological term called "diffusion of responsibility". If Romney were comfortably ahead in the polls, the responsibility of Republican voters would be diffused because they would believe their vote would not be needed as much as it would be if he were tied.
A similar thing would happen if Obama were comfortably ahead. The same voter would think his vote wouldn't really matter as much, so he would be more likely to stay home.
People like to think they are important, that they are needed, and that what they do matters.

I never liked the guy for anything at the federal level. He was fine for a state (though he still held too many views I strongly disagreed with, but at least he was restricted to a single state) but I had less than no interest in seeing him in any federal position. I was none too happy about him talking at the RNC, let alone having the keynote, but ... it was what it was.

As I wrote before about his blowing Barky on the beach ... Ann Coulter had to be put on suicide watch.

534 My anecdotal evidence:

I live on the NW side of the city of Chicago. I am a city worker in a neighborhood of city workers.
There is ---- not one Obama sign in this hood.
There are three Romney signs on the block, my Romney pumpkin, and one sign that reads VOTE PRO LIFE.

No O stickers on the NW side, though I did see a couple on the south side Friday.

And the only people at work voting D are the black people (100%) and one white woman who's not terribly bright.

No one is loud about the R vote, no one has stickers on their cars, but believe me, it feels like a tsunami building.

____________________________________

Yeah I agree. That's one reason I find a lot of this cycle's polling to be atrocious. I think 2008 was the "high-water mark" for Democratic client/voter groups if you will - that is, young voters, women, minorities, even uninterested boring white people, who wouldn't normally vote, but were swept up in Obamamania.

Polls that have D+ sampling at 2008 levels or higher are crap to me. Not gonna happen.

572 Cohen, a psychotherapist, said this year's campaign feels different from 2008, when the Obama effort was practically a crusade.

"Because Barack Obama was the first African American to have the potential to be president, that was thrilling to me. This election doesn't feel thrilling to me. It feels like a necessity."

A two-member team of volunteers headed out to Leedom Street in Jenkintown, a modest neighborhood dating from the early 20th century.

Bob Wirtshafter, an energy consultant and former University of Pennsylvania professor, worked one side of the street. He said that even residents identified as Obama voters sometimes shut the door in his face.

575 Neil Oxman, a veteran Democratic consultant, sees the election coming down to middle-income voters in older, near-in suburban communities like Havertown in Delaware County.

He imagines a couple in St. Denis Parish, Irish or Italian, in their 40s, living modestly with a home and cars they can afford - but feeling insecure about their future.

Both voted for Obama in 2008, as he imagines them. "The man has now gone" over to Romney. And the woman "is on fence."

I'm not a fan of Bachmann's in general. As much as the media would love to paint the Republicans as wanting to invade the bedroom and get all theological, people like Bachmann and Huckabee only give them ammo in my opinion.

And Bachmann is an attention-whore. I'm still pissed at her for attacking Perry for "attacking little girls with needles" for a damn vaccination (with an opt-out), which was "against a liberty interest." She does nothing for me.

To say Jeb was a very popular Governor would be an understatement, yet, I have wanted to slap him around ever since he left office.

And, I remember something else. I remember how very uncomfortable I was with the way Jeb handled the death of Lawton Childs. He was very indifferent and cold and business-as-usual.

I remember watching a press conference at the time and wondering if a mistake had been made in electing him. I don't remember his words, but I remember with perfect clarity the discomfort I felt.

655 NDH I looked up Lawton Childs but could only learn his bio. What did Jeg do? Usual ass wholeself?


****

I can't remember what he said, just that Chiles had just died, in office, and Jeb held a press conference about his assumption of the office and, IIRC, didn't even mention Chiles. Chiles was a decent man and had he been permitted to run again, would likely have won an additional term.

When he died, I was on vacation in Ft. Lauderdale and we were sitting around, having a lazy morning, staring out at the ICW when Jeb's press conference came on. There was a lot of chatter in the room about his coolness.

Again, all these years later, I don't remember his words, but I distinctly remember how very uncomfortable he made me feel.

Some interesting things--

Romney's favorables improved +7%--from there last polling.

Also they only had 10% Independents.

Independents were about 18% of the electorate in PA in 2008.

Independents in other PA polling--Franklin and Marshall were breaking for Romney by about--

+16%

48% For Romney, and 32% for Obama.

675 Chris Christie is a fool. I remember that a man from NJ called Mark Levin in 2010 and told him he has website of how bad Christie is. I added to my favorites but oat if when i bought iPhone last year and started deleting bookmarks from it, I didn't take into account iCloud would delete them from computer. I didn't think about it.

To those who wanted Christie to run for president, and/or VP, they must be mentally challenged, I can name a few of the "conservative media" who thought Christie was a god, Ann Coulter is one.

I have Powrline open and they say more states are swinging out way.
When Mitt wins, it's going to be the ugliest JEF we have ever seen on camera. Then the people that voted for him will realize what a SCOAMF he truly is, he won't be in demand for speaking engagements, etc.

______________________________________

I'll be honest with you, as a FredHead whose candidate was out of the running by the time the GA primary came around, I almost took a D ballot and voted for Obama just to vote against Hillary.

I agree that McCain sucked. At the same time, though, Obama really did have a "perfect storm." With Bush fatigue, the financial collapse, Obama's rhetoric, war fatigue, etc, I'm not sure if any Republican candidate could have beaten Obama in 2008. I would like to say my guy Fred could have, but Fred really wasn't enthusiastic about a national campaign. Obama could only be beaten by someone just as inspirational, not tied to Bush, not tied to anything surrounding the financial collapse, not tied to the wars, etc.

This time around, Romney's done an excellent job parrying Obama's sad and tiny playground rhetoric with serious talk about our nation's problems and an alternative path forward.

I've been more impressed by Romney in the past 3 months than I ever was before. I was a Perry fan this time around (I'm a sucker for late entries who are solid conservatives and have to be "called" to run, but may suck at campaigning/debating) and have disliked Romney heavily in the past, but I've come around.

Here's hoping once Romney gets to the WH, he actually does govern in the manner he's campaigned on. No more wishy-washiness, and no more expanding the government credit line. Time to get real.

My hope is this provides comfort to Obama supporters that might have something better to do on election day. "Oh, +5? Well, we got this then." Already talked to a few people that had that opinion from a simple media poll (i.e. inaccurate poll).

735 The PTR didn’t release the poll internals, but Lee told me this week that the poll is D+7, 44/37/19. SPR wanted to stick with one turnout model, and that closely resembles 2008′s electorate in PA. This result matches very closely to yesterday’s SPR poll results on the Senate race in PA, also a virtual dead heat.

741 I just don't understand how normally blue states like Michigan and Pennsylvania are showing Mitt either tied or winning, yet the national polls are tied. And normal swing states that represent a good crossection of America like Florida and Virginia are now locked up and comfortably going for Romney, even Dems will concede that.

Someone is seriously wrong, and I have to judge what the campaigns are actually DOING to make the best guess. I don't think both campaigns would be deploying millions in Pennsylvania (and the candidates' time) all for a head fake. If you asked me a year ago where the final days would be spent, I would have argued Virginia, Florida, North Carolina, and Ohio. 3 of these 4 are done, and Romney is expanding the map.

If it's truly tied in PA, Romney has to be leading nationally by 4-5 points.

I was a session musician when that song was hot. Some producer ripped it off for a RTD (bus) commercial. I played on the track and we were all laughing about it.Fleetwod Mac came into town for a concert. We heard that FM heard thejingle in the limo and went ballistic, screaming they were going to sue. (We knew promoterBarry Fey and heard about things like that). They never sued, so the ending is a nothing. "All you got to do, is catch the ride" was the hook, sung to the tune of Don'tstop, thinking about tomorrow.

I actually do read your blog, and agree with many of your assertions. I feel you're going to see an electorate that looks like 2004, but I really have no "quantitative" evidence to rest that conclusion on.

I think what worries me though is that if RCP is off 4-5 points, it basically means almost all of the pollsters are oversampling Democrats, even Rasmussen. And RCP poll averages has been eerily close in previous elections (even though I agree that the way they lump all the polls together is probably not sound)

And I hate going into an election with "it's all a conspiracy, the pollsters are all lying" but when you see the partisan breakdown, the only way those polls become valid is if you believe Obama is going to actually outperform what happened in 2008. But with the collapse of early voting, and Republican Party ID being at an all time high, I just can't swallow that,

We'll know Tuesday, but I would prefer to go into an Election being more certain of the outcome. I've felt pretty sure I knew what was going to happen for nearly every election in my lifetime. Except this one.

Berserker: What are Charvels running for $$ these days. I had a Wayne
Charvel Explorer (san dimas days) back in the day ...great guitar ..


Posted by: grease monkey at November 04, 2012 11:41 AM


New charvels can be had somewhat cheap. The ones I have been seeing are made in japan, and are made really really nice. The one I just got was from the pro mod series, and it has a real floyd on it, not a licensed copy, has 2 duncan pickups, the mini grover machine heads, and a san dimas style neck plate. That one listed for almost 1400, but had a street price of about $800-900, and I got it for less. I also saw some slightly different ones that sam ash was blowing out that were $550 and had a real floyd bridge on it also. The damn bridge alone is $300 if you had to buy one, and it came in a nice hardshell case. If you look around it seems they can be had cheap.

I don't have any clue what the old original san dimas ones are going for these days. They were hitting stupid prices during the peak. I compared my new one to my old original one, and damn its real close.

I wish we had better news to make me feel better, but I know the media is in full panic, drag obama over the finish line mode now. Maybe they think saying Romney is slightly behind will depress the Rep. vote. I think it has the opposite effect. The Dems. are going to try every dirty trick they have, and already got a Judge to extend early voting in a heavily lib. district in Florida today.

I agree, that used to be one of my "go to " sources. Also race42012.com (mainly just poll threads).

HotAir especially has become overrun with trolls, I don't why conservative sites are always so lenient when it comes to that. I'm not going to let someone take a shit in my living room in the hopes that I'll "win" them over.

Watching thousands of conservative users walk away all so you can placate a handful of liberals that want to grafitti up the place is beyond stupid.

HotAir is the first blog where I ever commented and it's how I wound up with this nick. At one time there were some intelligent commenters over there and you could actually learn things, especially on military/tech stuff. I assume they are all over here now since the last time I spent any time there it was split between "socons" in a perpetual state of anger against Allahpundit (who spends a lot of time poking them in the eye), clueless people, and trolls.

I tried using my login there maybe a year or so ago and wasn't able to get in. Don't know if I got banned or just swept up in a cleanup.

He didn't.
He just said that it was puzzling to see the discrepency between the state polls and the national ones.
Obviously, the state ones are overweighted Dims. Some are comically so. Higher than 2008 in states with a 20 percent growth in Pubbie registrations and a drop in Dim ones.
Some are so off that it's comical.
Republican early voting numbers are already over 25% higher than McCain's, and Pubbies don't often vote early as much as do Dims.

906 You better believe the MSM will decide that the electorate has suddenly become racist, xenophobic, heartless, and cold if The One is voted out as I suspect he will be on Tuesday.

Kinda like in 1994 when an anchor (can't remember who - Peter Jennings maybe??) said that Americans "threw a temper tantrum" for having the audacity to install a Republican majority for the first time in 40 years.

If Obama loses, it will be the End of America for the media talking heads. The oceans will rise again, people will be starving in the streets, Jim Crow will come back, and Chrissy Matthews will cry like a bitch before committing supuku. Or cutting off his genitalia, because he wouldn't want more offspring living in such a hellish reality where The One would be voted out of office.

909 "834
Another thing. To me Romney looks confident and obama looks scared. just my observation..."

To me that's the biggest "tell."

If Romney's pollsters were saying he was down a few points in the "must win" swing states, you would see a MUCH different Mitt Romney. Every other word would be "Benghazi". Instead he's giving "let's come together" type speeches. Obama is coming off as small and peevish.

Also, usually states have a cohesiveness when they shift. If Florida and Virginia go for Romney by 5-6 points, I have a hard time seeing Romney losing the popular vote or losing Ohio. It's the same with the few polls they do in the "blue states". Romney is outperforming McCain by double digits in places like Connecticut and Oregon, usually the rest of the country moves in the same direction.

Posted by: Jeepers at November 04, 2012 12:31 PM (XDRsa)

910 the problem with "polls of polls" are that not all polls are created equal. When you have national or state polls with samples that range from even to Dem +9 (or more), there is way too much noise in the samples (over and above statistical margin of error). If we end up with an even electorate, which I think is very possible, this election will end up a Romney landslide.

A lot of Denver fans convinced the team will win out from here. I say they drop two just out of boredom. 11-5, division champs. You can go places with Peyton Manning and a decent defense.

Ooh, another fun little backwater was Trans-Asian Axis. I think it is still around. It never took off, but there were some good mil folks there.

951 I used to read Powerline a fair amount, along with several other blogs, including HotAir, RedState, Drudge, and a bunch of others I frankly can't remember because I had them all aggregated in my Google Reader.

These days I mainly rely this site for awesome analysis and of course elbows, cussing, and pudding, and I still rely on HotAir because analysis aside, it's a good place to peruse for the headlines and the "top stories" in politics. I check Drudge for headlines too.

I used to read RedState a lot. I still check them, but their content quality seems to have gone down, especially with their new design which I'm not a fan of.

I'm a fan of Erick Erickson and am proud of him for how far he's gone (blogger to CNN commentator? good for him), and I thought his analysis of the GOP primaries was usually pretty good. He can be rather full of himself sometimes, though, and it can get annoying. Their content has seemed increasingly sparse as of late. Also, I don't get the "tech at night" stuff - maybe that's just me, but I'm not interested in it at all. RS was also rather establishment for quite a while, but became more "movement-conservative" once the Bush years were coming to an end.

If you can't tell, I've lurked here at the HQ and other sites for quite a while (years), but just recently decided to start commenting here a bunch. I'd rather discuss this stuff here with like-minded people than get into facebook flame wars with idiots with a marginal understanding of politics or of the conservative movement.

961 I was curious why Gallup didn't pivot and do a bunch of state poll sampling and analysis that might have explained the "divergence."

Oh well. I stopped worrying about the polls a few days ago. RCP and intrade are set up to look foolish this cycle.

Were you literally ran off?? As in, kicked off Facebook? Or did you have some posts removed or something? I've never had to deal with that.

But yeah, I got tired of dealing with tons of libtards on FB, quite frankly. I would always respond to hysterics with polite arguments, but it would only end up frustrating me when they operate from a completely different mindset and worldview. Not to mention, Bush is Evil and Republicans hate women. Because those are rational bases for discussion, as you know.

I'm a fan of the AOSHQ lifestyle, I'll be around.

963 It's amazes me that the pollsters believe that this election cycle will be D+8 or simply 2008 all over again. The midterm results are simply ignored. Will be fun watching the results come in Tuesday night.

Listen, children, to a story

that began in ‘61

‘bout a SCOAMF in Hawaii

and his quest to Be Someone

In the name of social justice

He began his long campaigns

That took most of ten years running

Then the White House was Hussein’s



Go ahead and hate your neighbors

Slander and deny your friends

Go ahead and call them racists

You can justify it in the end

There won’t be any chads left hanging

Come this Judgment Day

On the glorious morning after

One tinpot SCOAMF fades away



So, Barack Obama had it

What he’d waited so long for

And he loved the doting crowds who

gave a narcissist’s reward

He loved golfing, and the parties

And the flights on Air Force One

And the opportunities to

Scold and hector everyone



Now along rode Sir Paul Ryan

He had MATH and budget-fu

Spoke to him in health care summits

Embarrassed the Emperor through and through

Then Mitt Romney came to Denver

Refused to play the Villain’s part

Obama looked down at his lectern

Forgetting his Alinsky’s heart



Now Obama cried with anger

“I’m offended!” “Vote revenge!”

and Mitt easily reduced him

to the size of Spinal Tap’s Stonehenge

And on Tuesday, ‘spite Dem cheating

Electoral map it turned blood red

Romney Ryan having won it

And Obama hangs his head



Go ahead and hate your neighbors

Slander and deny your friends

Go ahead and call them racists

You can justify it in the end

There won’t be any chads left hanging

Come this Judgment Day

On the glorious morning after

One tinpot SCOAMF fades away

968 I think this election is even more of a watershed than 1980.

think the country is learning a lesson that it didn't with Carter. We thought he was just an aberration, an anomaly.

But with TFG we know the truth: this is who they are, this is what liberalism is. Humiliation and defeat abroad, less freedom for the good people still under tyranny, and stagnation at home.

Or am I reading too much into it?

Posted by: PJ at November 04, 2012 03:35 PM (DQHjw)

969 I have no idea why anyone would want to join the commentariat over at HotAir. The articles and links are alright, but the commenters?

Once you peel off the trolls and the "I am the only true conservative - watch me piss myself over a 0.5% poll shift and cry all is lost" remainder, there really isn't much to be said for the rest who comment there.
