Well, we did the best we could and we lost. Obama wins it narrowly. Now we can look forward to four more years of failure, stagnation and a looming debt crisis which Obama not only doesn’t have a plan for, but doesn’t even seem to recognize the problem. Now, on to the 2014 mid-terms.
We’ll add important updates in this post today. You can also follow me on Twitter, where a majority of my Election Day coverage will occur.
Battleground Watch: Romney 331, Obama 207 Ali A. Akbar: Romney 285, Obama 253 Karl Rove: Romney 285, Obama 253 Joe Trippi: Obama 303, Romney 235
Yup, the same guy who predicted John Kerry would win in 2004, and said that Bush needed a miracle to win reelection, is saying that Obama wins in handily. His key arguments for the 11th hour shifts in the battleground states are as follows Hurricane Sandy provided him with a boost. The last jobs report, [...]
My updated map makes some assumptions based on my confidence on select states, based on polling and anecdotal evidence. FL, NC, VA are good for Romney. As is OH and CO. Based on what the 2012 battleground state slate is, these states get him to 275 electoral votes and the win. In gray are swing [...]
Is Obama worried about the Keystone state? If you weren’t sure before, this says it all.
We switch back to Standard Time tonight. Feel free to share this image.
As we enter the final weekend before the most important election of our lifetime, the State of the Union is weak. Mediocrity, misery and economic malaise permeate every corner of our great country, with misery taking the forefront for those pour souls who were subject to Sandy’s wrath. As those in NJ, NY, PA, etc., [...]
Bishop Jenky of Peoria has ordered this letter read in all his parishes this weekend: Dear Catholic Believers, Since the foundation of the American Republic and the adoption of the Bill of Rights, I do not think there has ever been a time more threatening to our religious liberty than the present. Neither the president [...]
Manhattan is a rather low-lying island barely off the coast of the mainland of the United States. A great deal of its travel is done by tunnel and subway – which is naturally on a lower level than the island, itself. You’d think that someone would have looked in to the prospect of a storm [...]
One of our resident liberals has finally taken a firm ideological stand, after years of numerous requests to do so, and I want to thank James for having the courage to do just that. This now opens up an honest dialogue on left vs right ideology and how it relates to the constitutional framework of [...]
Love him or hate, you can’t argue that Rove knows his stuff. So, what does he say about how this Tuesday will turn out? It comes down to numbers. And in the final days of this presidential race, from polling data to early voting, they favor Mitt Romney. He maintains a small but persistent polling [...]
This is a conservative estimate. I do think there’s a chance we can take Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Nevada I’m less sure of, but I’ll update this projection on Friday. What do you think?
Of which there could be two. The first surprise would be the most damning and that is the possible revelation and existence of emails ordering counter terrorism groups in the area of Benghazi to stand down, which of course would be tantamount to outright sacrificing the lives of those four Americans. If this is true, [...]
It’s on in the Keystone State. A new memo from the Romney campaign talks confirms: Rendell: ‘Startling upset’ for Romney ‘a possibility’ in Pennsylvania When Governor Ed Rendell made these comments last week, he was clearly sending a desperate call to Chicago for help in the Keystone State. At the time, his comments were met [...]
When I went to bed last night it was clear that Sandy was going to be devastating – but waking this morning it is clearly much worse than feared in the dark of the night. I haven’t found any central website for Sandy relief efforts but I’m sure its only a matter of time – [...]
It might – from Politico: Mitt Romney’s super PAC, Restore our Future, is launching an 11th-hour ad blitz in Pennsylvania, POLITICO has learned. ROF is going up Tuesday with a $2.1 million ad buy across every Pennsylvania market, including pricey Philadelphia… That is a lot of money – and it wouldn’t be expended in Pennsylvania [...]
The election is near, the debates are over, the candidates have laid out their positions, so it all boils down to the numbers now. Today’s electoral map shows Obama with 237 “safe” electoral votes and Romney with 206 supposedly “safe” electoral votes. But are any electoral votes safe this year? I contend not, especially for [...]
