:( What if Romney gets elected? It could happen.

Let's just hope we're not seeing this Romney tomorrow night.

WTF is with you people?! Obama leads in the polls. There is no way in hell Romney wins this. Enough of the drama already.

I'm worried, too.

You have a Fox news anchor as Governor in Ohio and he appoints the person who oversees the election. If they rig Ohio it could swing the whole election.

No point in freaking out now. If you've voted and done all you can to convince others, then just wait and see and hope.

Dewey was ahead in the polls too.

by Anonymousreply 911/05/2012

I know Obama's ahead, but there's always the talk about turnout and how right wingers reliably turn out to vote on Election Day and Democrats don't and that's what's worrying me. Low turnout benefits the GOP.

Then you haven't been paying attention, R10.

My financial manager, who is a brilliant guy with clients all over the country, thinks Romney's going to win. As he has been correct in so many financial matters and has such an excellent grasp on the political scene and the economy, I'm officially worried. I wasn't until our conversation today.

I've been paying tons of attention R11, TOO much attention actually, and I know Obama looks good for the win, but I still don't want to assume that he has it in the bag because you never know what might happen and the right wingers are VERY corrupt and dirty.

Watch Hardball. Chuck Todd said Obama will get around 303 electoral votes including Virginia and could win NC and FLA.

by Anonymousreply 1711/05/2012

Our historic early vote turnout has put President Obama in a strong position to win tomorrow and continue to move the country forward for another four years.

How do we know? First, according to the latest polls, we are winning among early voters in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, Nevada, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Nearly all of these leads are in double digits. This matches the enthusiasm we’re seeing at polling places and out in the field.

Second, newly registered voters, infrequent voters, and those who voted for the first time in 2008—let’s call them “sporadic voters”—have taken advantage of the convenience of early vote, and the overwhelming majority of them are Democrats.

The South was on the wrong side of history regarding slavery. They were on the wrong side of civil rights. They are now on the wrong side of history in this election.

It’s who they are. It’s what they are. Being on “the wrong side of history” IS in their regional DNA.

Romney's been surging in the latest polls for the last few days.

Obama is not going to take VA or NC (please!), or FL. I am starting to doubt he's going to take OH.

The entire South & Midwest is MR's. It kind of hinges on NV, CO, MN (which is now in play), PA. They Flyovers you bitches have bitched about for years and hated, with their frauen and fat kids.....they will be voting tomorrow, well not the kids. And they won't be voting for BO. He does not translate to them.

Sure BO has both coasts. But the rest? No dice.

The rhetoric these past couple of days reminds me of Republican denial going into the 2006 midterms. Every GOP stooge imaginable stormed the airwaves to talk up their inevitable victory, knowing they were all full of shit. And then they had their asses handed to them. It's all a game to these liars.

I know it's their jobs, but all the big conservative pundents are calling this one for Romney. They are saying it is as clear as day, and it's truly frightening. I know Obama, according to Nate Silver, has now a 90% chance of winning, but would you get on a plane if it had a 10% chance of crashing?

Well, it's rare that someone has a 100% chance of winning. 92% is about as high as you can get most of the time.

Of course there's a possibility that Romney can win, but the question is, whose position would you most want to be in tonight?

This might effect the Popular Vote, but how would it effect the Electoral College? NY & NJ are already solidly in the Dem column.

A Visionless Party With More Money Than Brains

How Obama Made an Easy Race Too Close


One day before Election Day 2012 and the incredible has come true. Obama is neck and neck with Romney when, even with his disappointing record, Obama should be landsliding Romney and his Party of Big Business.

For all his billions plus campaign dollars, President Obama has missed out on repeatedly emphasizing the most obvious flaws of the Romney/Ryan campaign for a complete takedown.

If a year ago, people with a casual interest in politics were told that Obama’s opponent was a man who has secret bank accounts abroad, withholds his tax returns, maneuvers his various incomes in tax escape islands abroad, runs a takeover business that destroys or exports jobs, declares contempt for 47 percent of Americans receiving public benefits, adopts the Ryan Budget that shreds America’s public services, corporatizes Medicare, bloats the military budget, and further entrenches the domination of the one percent over American workers at a time of overall declining livelihoods and growing poverty, wouldn’t they conclude that the President was a shoo-in for re-election?

The Democrats failed to follow a cardinal rule of politics. Never let the public forget your opponent’s most serious liabilities. Sure, Obama’s televised ads battered Romney during the summer. Sure, when Romney picked Paul Ryan as his running mate, the Democrats portrayed the Ryan budget as cruel, dishonest and economically destructive (e.g. in the name of spending austerity, the Ryan budget still contains deficits past the 2040s, by his own admission).

But in the final eight weeks of the campaign you repeat these grim and dim positions over and over again. If you don’t, Romney’s ads and the dittoheads running Obama’s campaign involuntarily converge to produce voter amnesia.

Have you seen the Democrats hammering in the secret tax returns and bank accounts lately? Have you seen the grisly details grinding down people’s economic, health and safety well-being and sense of security contained in the unchained Ryan budget? They have virtually disappeared from the horse-race obsessed mainstream media – print and electronic – and pointedly from Obama and unions advertisements. Until the final hour, repetition of your political opponent’s worst failings before the undecided voters, that a winner-take-all election makes so pivotal, is the recipe for victory. It also changes some decided minds and induces some Romney-leaning voters to stay home. Better yet, it throws the Republicans on the defensive all the way down to local elections.

But then what can you expect from a visionless political party that has more money than strategic brains. Obama’s advisers tell him to run by himself and not with his Democratic members of Congress, who he needs to retake the House and keep the Senate in order to and get anything done in his second term. Worse, as Matt Bai wrote Sunday in The New York Times, Obama has had no narrative for America’s future.

The Democratic National Committee went along with letting their chief nemesis in Congress- Speaker John Boehner – run unopposed by a Democratic candidate in his Ohio District. Unopposed! A free ride! Newt Gingrich never did that when, as a junior Congressman from Georgia, he led the movement to dump Democratic House Speaker Jim Wright and shortly thereafter defeat the sitting Speaker Tom Foley in Foley’s own Washington state Congressional district.

But then who ever thought the Democrats had the energy, persistence and brashness to take on their opposing political giants and topple them?

Kevin Phillips was so right when he said years ago that the difference between the Republicans and the Democrats is that the former go for the jugular while the latter go for the capillaries.

I live in what could be called the bastion of the Democratic party, Providence, RI.

The polls were busy this morning. About ten people in line ahead of me and all the booths full. Took about ten minutes.

Then of course because there were three separate ballots (Elected Officials, State Questions, and City Questions) there was some confusion.

But all in all pretty smooth and good voter turnout. I note no politicians in attendance today. That was odd.
