Too funny. I love how they show that they really don't understand what Nate is doing:

[quote]Nate begins to backtrack even more: Obama as a ~90% favorite does NOT mean we're predicting a landslide. We expect a close election.

Claiming that this is a "backtrack?" The mind boggles.

Fucking morons.

Nate Silver SI NOT a POLL. He COLLECTS Poll data and publishes them all on his site.

As of this morinng every poll except Rasumussen and Gallup gave Obama the lead.

Are they going to say that EVERY SINGLE POLL RELEASE MONDAY was wrong as well.

If they had no faith in Silver, they would never be putting out this much effort to discredit him.

by Anonymousreply 911/06/2012

R8, that is absolute bullshit. I was around in 1980 and it was known that Reagan would win and that he had momentum. It was no surprise at this point and especially after their one debate. His landslide victory was higher than expected and in part because Carter conceded way too early. So stop with the Reagan surprise bullshit. It's a freeper talking point. Someone else posted a graph of the Reagan/Carter polls and Reagan was leading by several points a week before and it was trending upward during the final week.

Shame on you for lying - if you have any shame.

Conservatives don't believe in 'wrong side of history' arguments. The idea of history's inevitable forward progression is seen as Marxist leftism.

[quote]This country is not liberal at all. It is a Center Right country. That is a fact.

You are not factoring in several things. It WAS a Center Right country and is still relatively center BUT, there are changing demographics to consider. Old, bitter, rich, white men are a minority. In their mindset, they are still in power, still the majority. What is becoming the majority is everything that the Right demonizes (women, gays, Latinos, etc.) and while many of us might be Centerish, we aren't going to vote for the party that demonizes us, just so that those who make 250+k a year can get a tax cut.

[quote] On position after position, whether it comes to social issues, economic issues, or foreign policy issues, the majority of the country takes the liberal view.

I agree with this, but I also think we have to admit that current American liberalism is center-right when compared to other Western nations. American conservatism is far-right. Our politics need a major recalibration.

Paul, I adore you and I just think you're wasting your keystrokes.

Whatever happened to Pro-Romney Chap? The guy who posted pro-Romney polls and would phrase opposition as a question; "Am I wrong here?" or "I'm not seeing that, can you direct me?,"

He was a hoot. But at least he had a little more substance.

That's a fair criticism, although I'm not trying to be witty. And there is something of a method to my madness, and that is that I try to counter the obvious bullshit, like the lie that everyone was surprised when Reagan won. Anyway, I'll tone it down today, since otherwise I'd be doing nothing but responding to trolls all day.

At least this particular troll is more entertaining than most.

R14, you wouldn't be insulted by the likes of "Paul" and others if you actually believed anything that was *factual*.

You have a great deal to be ashamed of, voting Republican... especially voting for a man like Romney, who is a pathological liar, a craven flip-flopper, an arrogant out-of-touch elitist, a bully, and a con-man. All of those claims are verifiable facts, unlike all the claims made about Obama by the likes of you.

[quote]I'm on the absolute right side of history. This country is not liberal at all. It is a Center Right country. That is a fact.

Wrong again, on all counts.

Conservatives have almost NEVER been on the "right side of history" (from the American Revolution, where the conservatives were "torries" who were loyal to the crown... to the civil war, where conservatives wanted to preserve slavery... to the civil rights fights of the 50s and 60s, to the women's rights fights of the 70s and 80s, to the gay rights fights of the 90s to now).

And if individuals are asked to label themselves, yeah, they might average out to "center-right".


If you asked about unlabeled policies, and then averaged out the results, the policies would clearly indicate a center-LEFT country.

Survey after survey reinforces this fact.

My freeper brother tried to pull the "Reagan Revolution/Carter Shoe-in" story on me the other day. I said, "Really? I was about 9 years-old and I was fully aware for some time that Carter wasn't going to be re-elected, had something to do with growing number of days that Americans were being held hostage in Iran...If anything, what surprised people about Reagan's win was that Americans actually elected an actor as their president. It wasn't quite clear whether they would give him that kind of credibility."
