i think Obama is slightly ahead in Ohio, but i think Romney is going to surprise in Wisconsin...so might end up being decided by the smaller states (NH, Col, Iowa).

Romney is leading Ohio by a couple of percentage points.  Which isn't a great surprise for me as I seem to know more people supporting him than Obama.  Or perhaps, those who are voting for Obama are keeping their mouths shut.

If Ohio voters believe all the pack of lies, which even the car companies have taken pains to point out, and go ahead and elect Romney, then I hope every single one of those voting idiots gets their chosen future.
I feel sorry for the people who would suffer under a Romney Presidency, never having voted for him, and always having known he was elected based on smoke and mirror and the worst pandering in decades.  All at a time when anyone can suss out some basic facts so easily.

Meet The Press showed this graphic.  The president has more firewalls.  He could lose Ohio, Florida, Iowa, and Colorado, and still win.

Today's Quinnipica poll for Ohio shows Obama still maintaining a 5 pt. lead, unchanged from last week. Sorry Mittens, you will be losing come next Tuesday evening if you can't win Ohio. Even if you win Florida, you will still lose.

Now, what snacks should I plan for Election Night? That's the most important issue.

I've been following the polls provided as a link from our largest newspaper and It's showing Romney winning slightly.  I guess I'm gonna just stop watching the polls as I have found so many different ones with conflicting data.

I think it's a conspiracy by the mainstream media to make it appear that it's a close race in order to receive more advertising money.

He did just move there, and he's been bitching about it continually. IIRC he's never previously lived there, only visited or short work bits. Never actually had to rent an apartment, etc. He's not handling it very well and has been embarrassingly public about it on his blog, to the point that everyone else is making fun of him. But then again, Sully's really easy to mock.

This is LMAO. Either candidate can win without Ohio (especially this year), albeit more difficult. This is true especially since Mittens is purportedly closing gaps all over the board.

I believe the bases will pretty much cancel each other out, and the election will come down to the independent vote, which shows Mittens up by 10+points. Although all of this is predicated on the accuracy of polling, remember this is not 1980 anymore and there are fewer and fewer landlines (how many of you still have a landline?) thus polls are sampling the few people who have landlines and trying to pull that data up to a wider group. True, there is some polling donve via cell phones but it is very expensive and therefore somewhat limited.

I'm not sure how much credence to put in any polls, whether it shows Mittens or Barry leading. So who knows how it will pan out.

It will be an interesting night on Tuesday  ;)

Real clear politics Average national poll.

Obama 47.4%
Romney 47.4%

Disclosure: That is the national poll which really doesnt mean anything in an electoral college but its still interesting that it is exactly TIED!!!

Side note:  Andrew Sullivan is creepy.

You've obviously been masturbating while watching Dick Morris on Fox News. If Mittens doesn't win Ohio, he'd have to win every other remaining swing state. That's simply not true for Obama.

Let's put it this way -- with the current polling averages in the swing states would you rather be in Mittens shoes or Obama's? That answer shouldn't be difficult, even for a braincell-challenged fake-taco-eating tumbleweed like you.

I don't get the national polls. Every single non official poll, like the one here and the polls on many many other forums, people consistently are overwhelming for Obama. Its like 2 to 1 average in Obama's favor. Many 3 to 1. So why are the national polls so tight? Doesn't make sense. If the actual vote follows the same trend, Obama will win by a huge landslide. Assuming Karl Rove hasn't figured out how to rig the process.

Check out this blog http://fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytimes.com/author/nate-silver/

If you read this guys blog you get a bigger picture of sampling from all the major polls . Polls such as Gallup used to be the gold standard as far as polling goes , but much has changed in recent years such as people using cell phones instaed of land lines , so Gallup is still a good poll but only if used as snapshot of a certain demographic . There are other partisan polls out there too that distract from the clear picture . This guy uses a method that factors in many diffrent polls .  Hope this helps .

also, the poll here on this site is FAR from scientific. i should know, as i posted it.
i just thought it might reflect the views of people here on the outcome of the election and had hopes that people would vote on this poll for who would win and by what margin and NOT who they hoped would win.

with a mere 23 votes thus far, this poll is as helpful as an umbrella in a tornado.

So why are the national polls so tight? Doesn't make sense.

Because Mittens is running up huge margins in all of the southern states. I provided a link somewhere, not sure if it's in this thread or another, with the regional breakdown of a typical Gallup poll. Outside of the South Obama leads in national polling, but by only a margin of something in single digits. In the South Romney leads by something like 20 pts. so that high margin cancels out the three other regions if you look just at the aggregate numbers. Hence the possibility of Romney winning the popular vote but losing the EC.

And, of course, Romney's 80% support in the South is all white people. I feel sorry for them actually, having to make the choice of voting for a member of a polygamist religious cult to defeat The Black Man.

I guess Ohio had a lot of undecided voters because suddenly, the polls showing Obama having a huge lead.

I've questioned many of my friends and family how they intend to vote on Issue 2 and not a single one of them had a clue what it really deals with.    Gotta love these well informed voters.

If it passes, Ohio's constitution can be amended without referendums but rather by a group of political delegates.

From time to time you read discusions about wether it might be better to get rid of the electoral collage and go with the popular vote instead . I haven't given it much thought but I can see where there would be a benefit of counting the votes of the ones who actually took the time and got off their butt and voted .

What do you guys think ?

The Columbus Dispatch has endorsed a Democrat for State Senator.  This is huge from a Republican newspaper.

http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/editorials/2012/10/31/for-u-s--senate.html

I think the Republican telephone campaign might be failing miserably, sending mixed messages.  My family tends to vote Republican but even my mother is concerned by some of the recent automated calls she has rec'd.

One call indicated that the women of Ohio should not be primarily concerned with social/personal issues, but rather on the the state of the economy.  Within the same day, she rec'd another recording pleading with her to vote for Romney and Mandel because they believe in the sanctity of marriage and the DOMA.  They believe marriage is between one man and one woman.

So, do they want her to vote based on social issues or not?

This could just be my nervous nature.

But as the election is getting closer I am getting more nervous. 

As someone with a pre-existing condition, the repeal of Obamacare is just frightening.

I love how Wumpy called me a liar, requested the posting of 21 polling results, I complied, and he offers no comment. He may say he's voting for Obama, but deep in his heart he has some sort of cognitive dissonance that the Southern conservative power structure isn't the rightful majority ruler of the US.
