I used to think he was the Republican John Kerry, but apparently his situation is even worse.

John Kerry was a boring nice guy.

Romney is a boring asshole.

Yeah. People didn't take Kerry seriously, but he wasn't actively disliked.

It struck me earlier this morning that Romney has probably never had a real job interview in his life.

I think at that level, when your father is governor and your family friends are all on the Board of Directors, when you're first out of school, a friendly VP quietly takes you out to lunch and gently asks you some questions about where you want your career to go. You don't have to sweat in front of a panel of total strangers and sell yourself with everything you've got. Of course he doesn't know how to convince voters that he's the man for the job - he has literally less experience doing that than your average student.

I wonder how many points Mitt is ahead over in Freeperland. Anyone ventured over there recently?
 
2012-09-21 09:41:39 AM
I don't think anyone is voting for Romney. They're all voting against Obama. So Romney could be replaced by an inanimate carbon rod and probably get a bump.

Aarontology: Politicandy: I used to think he was the Republican John Kerry, but apparently his situation is even worse.

He was disliked as much as any out of touch rich arsehole. If you have never worried about how you are going to pay the rent or never had to consider what you could actually afford when buying a car you are out of touch with the average Joe. Period. You did not get that rich by just working hard and playing buy the rules. A lot of people resent that and dislike them for it. Granted Kerry married most of his money but he is a senator and they all game the system in ways that would most likely have you or I put in prison.

The difference is Rmoney is pure evil and has willfully destroyed functioning businesses and harmed the communities that depend on them in the name of profit. Kerry hasn't reached that level of evil but I still dislike him.

John Kerry is an obscenely rich person just like Mitt Romney, but Kerry paid his dues. He served our country in the military (fighting in a war that Romney protested FOR rather than against, then avoided completely), then he went into public office. He is the Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which doesn't sound like an easy position to come by.

They have similarities, but it's mostly centered on their money/upbringing. Everything beyond that, and they couldn't be more different. I'd rather meet John Kerry than Mitt Romney. I'd shake Kerry's hand and apologize to him for the disgraceful way his military service was denigrated in 2004. If I met Mitt Romney, I'd be tempted to throw a cup of water in his face to see if his circuits blow and start shorting out.

This. The inanimate carbon rod would get 40% of the vote, no questions. Clint Eastwood could host a debate between the rod and an empty chair. It would be the best 60 minutes of television ever.

That's the funny part. It seems like they chose him because they thought he had the lowest chance of imploding, and they believed that if their guy didn't implode, the GOP would slide right in in this economy. Then Romney implodes.

well of course Romney was gonna implode. ALL the GOP frontrunners in the primary race were going to implode. the only question was when and how much collateral damage they were going to cause when the inevitable happened.

The GOP here in Pennsylvania is imploding because they released a poll yesterday calling the race a "dead heat" to try and drum up enthusiasm...and then later yesterday Karl Rove announced his data shows the state to be a solid Obama win.

That's the problem the GOP is struggling with. They want to have Generic Republican on the ticket, since Generic Republican handily beats Obama in polls, so they tried to get the most generic Republican that they could find. Unfortunately, Mitt isn't generic enough. Not only is he not generic enough, he's an elitist asshole, and people are starting to understand that.

It depends on how many voters get disenfranchised in November thanks to the GOP's voter suppression laws. The ID requirement looks like it's getting struck down. And rightfully so.
 
2012-09-21 11:42:25 AM
He has come across to the T the definition of a sleazy politician that will say anything to get elected and then bend over backwards for the special interests groups that funded him. The only reason that he is polling as high as he is is due to the right wing trying to pain Obama as some sort of anti-christ for the last 4 years.

I didn't actively hate W as a person. I hated his administration, but people always said he was a good guy to meet in person. I didn't hate McCain, I was disappointed in where he went in order to get the nomination, but I still had respect for what he's done in life. I actively do not like Mitt Romney. He has no core convictions, feels entitled to the presidency, and he seems to lack empathy for anyone that isn't rich, white, and straight. He lost any shred of respect I may have had for him as a person when he called half of the country losers that he doesn't care about. What kind of asshole does that, especially when running for president?

fark off, Romney. I'm tired of hearing your name.

He did have the lowest chance of imploding. Aside from Huntsman and Johnson, who's policy positions were too out of joint with the general Republican platform

somedude210: In some states, yes. But I have a feeling we're gonna see OH shenanigans again, or even FL.


I'm hoping Obama's good polling numbers and proected EV lead will prevent Ohio and Florida shenanigans from happening this year. In 2000 and 2004, the R's only had to swing one state to win. This year, they'll have to stage "upsets" in several swing states for Romney to win.
 
2012-09-21 11:48:49 AM
The best thing about his implosion is that he isn't having a single Dukakis moment, he is retiring the Dukakis moment. In years forward we will refer to bad campaigning as having "Romney'd it upped."

He didn't even need a tank.

The dog-rack story put me in the 'will not vote for under any circumstances category' with Romney.

I really hate the derpocraps, with their whole philosophy of 'let's make the country better by stealing from the rich, and giving the money to a bunch of farking bums'. But Romney scares me the way Bush Light does. I just imagine one bone-headed thing after another for 4 years.

At least Fartbongo is invisible. Sure he promised a lot, then didn't do jack squat. But at least he didn't make things worse. Play basketball, Barry, and everything will be okay.

Fortunately for the GOP, every time we get a dumbotard president in there with a dumbotard congress, they manage to smoking crater themselves in the off year elections before they can do any real damage to the country.

Thank FSM for gridlock. The only thing that would be better is if the president and the entirety of congress pledged to do nothing, and go home.

The RNC is really are a bunch of dimwits. Imagine if they had really put their muscle behind Huntsman and used Fox News and the narrative in general to set him up as the presumptive nominee. Imagine where we'd be right now. Republicans are always going to vote for the guy with the "R" after his name so that would still be locked up but you'd legitimately have a horse race with the undecideds and independents.

I'm always teetering back and forth, wondering if republicans are really this stupid or if they're actually just evil and faking the stupidity but on this one, since it will cost them the election I'm going to have to go with irredeemably stupid.

Is there a real reason the GOP hates Obama so much? With the exception of healthcare reform (passed by almost all of the past 4 presidents), what is their beef? His economic strategy is fairly similar to W's, his foreign policy is only viewed as different because he doesn't appear as reckless or as inarticulate as W, and he has barely done anything the GOP hasn't been completely behind in the past.

So what the shiat really gives here?

Then why has he been running for president for so many years? If he doesn't care so much about winning that trophy, why has he put in so much time and effort into it? He has been running for office since 1994, with the eventual goal to win Top Executive of America. Someone doesn't devote nearly 2 decades of their life to something they don't care about.

That's the funny part. It seems like they chose him because they thought he had the lowest chance of imploding, and they believed that if their guy didn't implode, the GOP would slide right in in this economy. Then Romney implodes.

well of course Romney was gonna implode. ALL the GOP frontrunners in the primary race were going to implode. the only question was when and how much collateral damage they were going to cause when the inevitable happened.


I guess they didn't think Mitt Romney's implosion would create a singularity, sucking their Senate hopes in with it.

TimonC346: Is there a real reason the GOP hates Obama so much? With the exception of healthcare reform (passed by almost all of the past 4 presidents), what is their beef? His economic strategy is fairly similar to W's, his foreign policy is only viewed as different because he doesn't appear as reckless or as inarticulate as W, and he has barely done anything the GOP hasn't been completely behind in the past.

So what the shiat really gives here?


The people that run the Republican party only want one thing - to loot the nation of its remaining natural and financial resources. The rest of the Republican platform is camouflage.

Obama may take a lot of conservative positions, but he's called out the 1% on their rapaciousness, and that is unacceptable to the owners of the nation.

They also don't care for the color of his skin.

God Is My Co-Pirate: It struck me earlier this morning that Romney has probably never had a real job interview in his life.

I think at that level, when your father is governor and your family friends are all on the Board of Directors, when you're first out of school, a friendly VP quietly takes you out to lunch and gently asks you some questions about where you want your career to go. You don't have to sweat in front of a panel of total strangers and sell yourself with everything you've got. Of course he doesn't know how to convince voters that he's the man for the job - he has literally less experience doing that than your average student.


True, but he did win the Gov in Mass, even though he doesn't want to talk about it...significantly smaller stage than he iis on now, however.

KarmicDisaster: Except Romney has run for office before, and won. Even if he had no job interview experience, he does have experience selling himself to voters. The fact that he's still so bad at it just makes the whole situation more hilarious.

Except last time he ran he was a liberal.


Choosing to market himself to the wrong set of voters still makes him bad at running for office. Granted, four years ago it was still okay to be a moderate Republican; switching sides probably didn't look like such a bad idea.

Lando Lincoln: If he was a white Democrat, they wouldn't mind him nearly as much.


I dunno about that; I think they'd very much mind a white Democrat from Chicago being elected president. I read an interesting article on this a few years back; it's not necessarily being a Democrat that's the problem (though it does contribute), it's being a Democrat that's not from the South. If you look at the last 6 Democratic presidents going back to Roosevelt, four out of the six were from the South, and Kennedy chose a Southerner as Vice President. Obama has broken that mold in a major way.

He has been running for office since 1994, with the eventual goal to win Top Executive of America. Someone doesn't devote nearly 2 decades of their life to something they don't care about.


In a way it reminds me of Larry Ellison and the pursuit of the America's Cup. It's a trophy he can have that nobody else at the Billionaires Only country club can have.

The bizarre paradox is that it seems that in both cases they believe they deserve it because of their unique personal talents, yet in order to have it all that is required of them is to spend huge amounts of money. It's a strange mental state.

Mitt Romneys Tax Return: somedude210: In some states, yes. But I have a feeling we're gonna see OH shenanigans again, or even FL.

I'm hoping Obama's good polling numbers and proected EV lead will prevent Ohio and Florida shenanigans from happening this year. In 2000 and 2004, the R's only had to swing one state to win. This year, they'll have to stage "upsets" in several swing states for Romney to win.


I'd be much more concerned about shenanigans in the Senate, House and Governor races.

I just watched (part of) the video as part of the Colbert Report, and his coverage of it, and I can really only say this.

It's true. About 47% of Americans are parasites. There is no elegant way to say that. It's still true, though.

Mitt should have stated that he didn't care about trying to convert them to vote for him because it can't be done, rather than stating it in a way that implies he doesn't care about them at all, period (even if that is the actual case).

And I think that's the error. I really don't give a squirt about you 47% losers either. And yet I still think I care more about you than Mitt does. Maybe our president should care about all the citizens. I dunno. But I fear that Mitt will treat the 47% like his dog, and roof-rack a large portion of the American populace, and in my estimation, to the tune of a much larger percentage than just 47%.

No, for our lurking studio audience, the 47% are not parasites. 61% of them are making very little money (while the CEOs make something like 260 times the grunts), and most of the rest are students and elderly, the last of which has paid into entitlements most of their lives.

I'm guessing somewhere in the 60s, given the Lamestream Palace Guard MSM Dhimmedia's inability to question the sheer volume of lies, misinformation and mendacity from the Romney campaign. "Inability" as in, "if they asked the campaign about one untruth from between JAN2012 and SEP2012 every hour from now until the campaign, they'd be stuck in February on Election Day".

Car_Ramrod: I didn't actively hate W as a person. I hated his administration, but people always said he was a good guy to meet in person. I didn't hate McCain, I was disappointed in where he went in order to get the nomination, but I still had respect for what he's done in life. I actively do not like Mitt Romney. He has no core convictions, feels entitled to the presidency, and he seems to lack empathy for anyone that isn't rich, white, and straight. He lost any shred of respect I may have had for him as a person when he called half of the country losers that he doesn't care about. What kind of asshole does that, especially when running for president?

fark off, Romney. I'm tired of hearing your name.


This. I disagreed intensely with Bush and McCain, hell I almost thought about voting for McCain if Hilary had the nod and Palin hadn't been chosen. But both of them seem to be, on a personal level, half ways decent. Kerry, while I thought he was a terrible candidate, didn't seem that bad of a politician. Just utterly unexciting and brought nothing new to the table. Again, on a personal level I'm sure he would be alright to meet for a few minutes at a fundraiser. I am actively loathing Mitt Romney though. I turn the channel every time he's interviewed. It's that smug look that he gives off, that smirk that belies a conviction that he is entitled to this office because of his money, connections and previous campaigns. His wife is certainly not helping matters either.

Romney just comes across as everything people hate about the stereotypical American politician. Added into the mix is the smug elitist asshole factor and the wife who thinks her shiat does not stink (to borrow a phrase from Grandma). He's not even any good at this whole campaigning for President deal,.

I think he knows this, and in his (jesus, I can't believe I'm doing this) defense, how many times did the popular vote get run out there in December 2000 as proof that... Bush wasn't "duly elected by the people". And then the debate rages for a few weeks and nothing becomes of it. So he is kinda using an old liberal tactic that has no where to go but in the circular file. But again, what does it say about the incumbent? Nothing. It says the voters are paste-eating feckless morons who vote with a Biblical dick shoved up their asses.

How many other life goals is the guy really going to have at this point?

The Presidency is a prestige item for Romney, and one of the few that he can't (quite) buy outright. That's the challenge, and that may well be the only real attraction of it. It certainly helps explain his tin ear for the process- trying to negotiate from the viewpoint of a buyer of the office, rather than as a seller of himself.

It would certainly buoy my spirits regarding the state of this country if all that money Romney and the superPACs are pouring into his campaign resulted in diddly-squat, or even better if the Dems came out stronger in the Senate/House. At least afterward Romney could point to this as a single instance where he actually put money into the US economy rather than sucking it out and storing it in offshore tax havens.

DirkValentine: sammyk: Aarontology: Politicandy: I used to think he was the Republican John Kerry, but apparently his situation is even worse.

Yeah. People didn't take Kerry seriously, but he wasn't actively disliked.

He was disliked as much as any out of touch rich arsehole. If you have never worried about how you are going to pay the rent or never had to consider what you could actually afford when buying a car you are out of touch with the average Joe. Period. You did not get that rich by just working hard and playing buy the rules. A lot of people resent that and dislike them for it. Granted Kerry married most of his money but he is a senator and they all game the system in ways that would most likely have you or I put in prison.

The difference is Rmoney is pure evil and has willfully destroyed functioning businesses and harmed the communities that depend on them in the name of profit. Kerry hasn't reached that level of evil but I still dislike him.

What? Are you saying that Kerry never worked for anything? Oh, yeah, I guess he didn't actually risk his life for his country VOLUNTARILY.

You, sir, are a buffoon.


I never said I had no respect for his military service. But the guy was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Just like dear old dad he married money.

From wikipedia:"Kerry is the child of Richard Kerry (1915-2000), a Foreign Service Officer and an attorney for the Bureau of United Nations Affairs, and Rosemary Forbes Kerry (1913-2002), a World War II nurse and member of the wealthy Forbes family. Rosemary was born in Paris, France, to American parents. Kerry has three siblings: two sisters, Diana (born in 1947) and Margerie (aka Peggy; born in 1941), and a brother, Cameron (born in 1950), Cameron Kerry was picked to be President Barack Obama's general counsel of the Commerce Department.[1] One of Kerry's maternal great-great-grandfathers was Robert Charles Winthrop, the 22nd Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.[2]"

This may be true, but 95% of that 47% are from Red states sucking up government resources and holding up misspelled "Vote Rmoney" signs.

Lando Lincoln: They want to have Generic Republican on the ticket, since Generic Republican handily beats Obama in polls, so they tried to get the most generic Republican that they could find. Unfortunately, Mitt isn't generic enough. Not only is he not generic enough, he's an elitist asshole, and people are starting to understand that.




Maybe the GOP leadership wanted Romney because the taller candidate usually wins.

(can't think of any other reason)

rtaylor92: The RNC is really are a bunch of dimwits. Imagine if they had really put their muscle behind Huntsman and used Fox News and the narrative in general to set him up as the presumptive nominee. Imagine where we'd be right now. Republicans are always going to vote for the guy with the "R" after his name so that would still be locked up but you'd legitimately have a horse race with the undecideds and independents.

I'm always teetering back and forth, wondering if republicans are really this stupid or if they're actually just evil and faking the stupidity but on this one, since it will cost them the election I'm going to have to go with irredeemably stupid.


I think it is totally irrelevant who won the primary. The pattern is pretty clear that the Presidential candidates in the GOP have no power and no "free will" - McCain and Romney both immediately turned into Bush clones (or the imaginary version of Reagan) as soon as it was clear they had won the Primary and the GOP backroom elites took over and started telling them what to do and say if they wanted the money and machinery of the RNC and the rest of the GOP party to stand behind them.

Cletus C.: And yet polling shows the popular vote is almost a dead heat.

It says that much of the country buys into the bullshiat that the GOP has been spewing for the past three years.

You seem to be a smart guy. You've seen the job loss charts. You've seen how many jobs we we losing on the day Obama walked into office. You've seen how those job losses tailed off the longer Obama was in office. You see how many consecutive job gain months we've had since. So you know that that "millions of jobs lost under Obama's tenure" factoid is 95% due to the shiat that happened before Obama walked into office. But it's a hard number, and the GOP can technically stick it to Obama, so they do, and much of America believes that number, even if that number doesn't paint an accurate picture of the jobs story at all.

And the GOP has other bullshiat numbers that they can stick to Obama, and they do, and much of America believes the story that those numbers falsely tell as well. I can't really blame them. They're the opposition party, and they want to be in power again, and they'll do whatever they can to achieve that goal. Even if what they do is indirectly stalling the economy.

So what does it say about the incumbent? It says that he's gaining ground against a bad economy, but he's losing much of the message war.

God Is My Co-Pirate: coeyagi: God Is My Co-Pirate: what_now: God Is My Co-Pirate: It struck me earlier this morning that Romney has probably never had a real job interview in his life.

I think at that level, when your father is governor and your family friends are all on the Board of Directors, when you're first out of school, a friendly VP quietly takes you out to lunch and gently asks you some questions about where you want your career to go. You don't have to sweat in front of a panel of total strangers and sell yourself with everything you've got. Of course he doesn't know how to convince voters that he's the man for the job - he has literally less experience doing that than your average student.

Wow. That is a very very interesting point. I never really thought about that.

Thanks, I'm busy right now prepping for an interview on Tuesday, and it occurs to me that I probably shouldn't stride in and say to the panel, "Boy, that last guy you interviewed was terrible, huh? I mean, he'll ruin your company if you hire him, haha. So, when do I start?"

No, go balls deep. Do just that. Maybe even whip your dick out on the table and say "I will personally thrust your company to the next level". It can't hurt / help.

Ha! I don't actually have a dick, but that's never stopped me before.


That's even better. They would be expecting a guy to whip out his dick, but a strapon might catch them off guard. If you get the chance, slap somebody in the forehead with it to show that you're an aggressive go-getter.

WTF is wrong with you people? Don't you realize what a privilege it is to be able to vote for my husband?

I dislike this biatch far more than I do Mitt

/and I wouldn't piss on Mitt if he were on fire


I'm with you on that one. Ann Romney looks, acts, and preaches like a rich, annoying biatch who wouldn't give 99% of the country the tije of day if their lives depended on it.

I hate to judge a person on ooks, but with Ann Romney it is impossible not to do that. Even her smile is forced and fake for the cameras, as if WE are honored to even look at her. And that little rant she gave saying we should be privileged to have her husband as President seals the deal.

And Mitt is just a jerk weed, through and through. If he needs his wife to come out and defend him, ain't no we he should get anywhere near the launch codes and be my CinC. I couldn't even imagine my CO's wife coming out to speak at formation defending her battalion commander husband because she heard we hated him and him command. That clown would be relieved of command the next day.

/unfortunately, I know way too many Marines and service members who will vote for that guy simply because...you take a wild guess?

Romney reminds me of the CEO of the company I worked at for 10 years.

At one point, we all had to go under mandatory "gender sensitivity training". Of course, the irony of it was that the CEO was probably the one who most was likely to spew off the insensitive joke about "dames" or whatever. And when leaving one of the seminars, the CEO wanders by, and someone jokingly asked him why he wasn't at the meeting.

His response was basically that by going to the meetings, that opens up a liability of him getting sued, since he would then have knowledge that talking about women on the clock the way he did is wrong. This way he could legally feign ignorance.

Anyway, I see Romney in the exact same light; as a guy who can easily just skip pass these mandatory things in life because they inconvenience him, without worry from any ramifications.
 
2012-09-21 12:58:15 PM

Cubicle Jockey: I'm hoping Obama's good polling numbers and proected EV lead will prevent Ohio and Florida shenanigans from happening this year. In 2000 and 2004, the R's only had to swing one state to win. This year, they'll have to stage "upsets" in several swing states for Romney to win.

2004 wasn't just about Ohio. Remember twenty-six states had exit polls which showed statistically significant levels of higher support for Kerry than he ended up with. The National Election Data Archive Project listed this as a 1 in 16.5 million chance of occuring naturally.

Furthermore, that election had the highest turn out percentage since 1968. High turnouts have always been beneficial to Democratic candidates, yet they lost ground? 12 million people who didn't vote for Bush in 2000 voted for him in 2004, while Kerry only gained 9 million .

Ohio is famous because it was the most blatant. But don't think for a second shenanigans weren't going on elsewhere.


I think it's wise to be skeptical when people start shouting that "It's a conspiracy," otherwise we sound as unhinged as the truthers. I'm trying to hold out some hope that Republicans can't just steal elections at will. They did lose pretty badly in '08.

sammyk: DirkValentine: sammyk: Aarontology: Politicandy: I used to think he was the Republican John Kerry, but apparently his situation is even worse.

Yeah. People didn't take Kerry seriously, but he wasn't actively disliked.

He was disliked as much as any out of touch rich arsehole. If you have never worried about how you are going to pay the rent or never had to consider what you could actually afford when buying a car you are out of touch with the average Joe. Period. You did not get that rich by just working hard and playing buy the rules. A lot of people resent that and dislike them for it. Granted Kerry married most of his money but he is a senator and they all game the system in ways that would most likely have you or I put in prison.

The difference is Rmoney is pure evil and has willfully destroyed functioning businesses and harmed the communities that depend on them in the name of profit. Kerry hasn't reached that level of evil but I still dislike him.

What? Are you saying that Kerry never worked for anything? Oh, yeah, I guess he didn't actually risk his life for his country VOLUNTARILY.

You, sir, are a buffoon.

I never said I had no respect for his military service. But the guy was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Just like dear old dad he married money.

From wikipedia:"Kerry is the child of Richard Kerry (1915-2000), a Foreign Service Officer and an attorney for the Bureau of United Nations Affairs, and Rosemary Forbes Kerry (1913-2002), a World War II nurse and member of the wealthy Forbes family. Rosemary was born in Paris, France, to American parents. Kerry has three siblings: two sisters, Diana (born in 1947) and Margerie (aka Peggy; born in 1941), and a brother, Cameron (born in 1950), Cameron Kerry was picked to be President Barack Obama's general counsel of the Commerce Department.[1] One of Kerry's maternal great-great-grandfathers was Robert Charles Winthrop, the 22nd Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.[2]"


Silver spoon or not, he's earned mountains of respect more than Romney. Period.

2012-09-21 01:22:20 PM
If you make more than $300,000 per year, there is a logical reason to vote for Romney...your taxes will go down.

If you don't make more than $300,000 per year, the only reason to vote for Romney is because you hate Obama so much that you don't care who is in office, as long as it isn't Obama. (Or maybe you are a Mormon and really want a Mormon to be President.)

All other reasons that usually apply to voting Republican go out the window. Health care? Gun control? Abortion? International policies? The budget? No one, possibly including Romney himself, knows how he will deal with these things once he is in office. He is a total unknown on all issues aside from "give rich people/corporations tax breaks."

Is this still a thing that the GOP is pushing, that Democrats wanna take away yer guns? Didn't SCOTUS rule on this a few years ago, and now everyone has the right to a .50cal SAW in their living room, and if you cannot afford a firearm, one will be provided by the courts at no charge?

I see the official GOP line is slowly morphing into "Yeah we're tanking in this election, but if Obama were any good we'd be tanking EVEN MORE, so there!!11!" Somehow even Obama defeating them is supposed to be a referendum on how much everyone hates Obama.

This is why the republican party is destined to die. It's been reduced to blind, reckless hatred pointed in no particular direction, and has become so completely closed off from reality that it's impossible to ever come back. It openly snubs reality because Obama exists there.

Carn Well, handpicking a couple of polls and ignoring the rest so that you can support a conclusion makes you ignorant. It also makes you intellectually dishonest, or probably safe to say, a liar. Being derogatory toward others for supposedly exhibiting the same traits that you are exhibiting makes you a hypocrite. So, Mr. lying, ignorant, hypocrite, a couple of links:

1. It's not the quantity it's the quality. Rasmussen was the most accurate pollster last election cycle because he samples likely voters, which tend to change each election.

2. The record 2008 election wave for Democrats, the electorate was D+7. In 2004, when George W. Bush won reelection, the electorate was evenly split. 2010 it was evenly split. Yet as you see below.....the samplings are almost all +6 to higher. Hell CBS had a poll out last week that was +13D.

www.theblaze.com

Unless you farking truely believe (I wouldn't put it past you) that democrats are going to outnumber republicans by at least 7 farking points on election day depsite party affiliation going from a +7 Democrat in 2008 to +4 Republican in 2012....you are kidding yourself. Link

But then again, libs believe everything they see on TV and the internet. link

Excellent article. Key point:

Moreover, Rasmussen's polls were quite biased, overestimating the standing of the Republican candidate by almost 4 points on average.

If you shift the Rasmussen's Presidential polling today by those 4 points, it brings it almost perfectly in line with the RCP average.

You did call all liberals ignorant. I provided proof that it is you, in fact, who are ignorant, and in addition a liar and a hypocrite. Good job on staying on message though and continuing to only accept information which sustains the conclusion you started with.

This article says there are 42 million registered democrats vs 30 million republicans, so if party affiliation in the polls is your key piece of evidence, I think that falls short too. Will turnout determine the winner? Of course. Is there some hidden result behind the polls, no. Nate Silver talks about this all the time in his blog and did in the link I posted upthread. This is why there is a distinction between likely voters vs registered voters.

"Mr. Obama's results have been more varied among polling firms that use different methodologies. A series of polls in eleven swing states, released on Thursday by the online firm YouGov, were fairly strong for Mr. Obama, putting him ahead among likely voters in all of the states except North Carolina.

But automated polls, like those from the Rasmussen Reports, have had lukewarm results for Mr. Obama. A Rasmussen Reports poll released on Thursday, for instance, put Mr. Obama three points behind in Iowa."


and later:

"Of course, if you're a purist, then the Gallup survey is the only one of the four tracking polls that you'll find acceptable, since it's the only one to use a traditional methodology. But then you have to reconcile that with the fact that the polls using the strongest methodological standards at the state level are now giving Mr. Obama a six-point lead in the battleground states.

Mr. Romney would much prefer the robopolls, warts and all. And if his numbers don't improve soon, he had better hope that they are right."

whosits_112: SevenizGud: I just watched (part of) the video as part of the Colbert Report, and his coverage of it, and I can really only say this.

It's true. About 47% of Americans are parasites. There is no elegant way to say that. It's still true, though.

Mitt should have stated that he didn't care about trying to convert them to vote for him because it can't be done, rather than stating it in a way that implies he doesn't care about them at all, period (even if that is the actual case).

And I think that's the error. I really don't give a squirt about you 47% losers either. And yet I still think I care more about you than Mitt does. Maybe our president should care about all the citizens. I dunno. But I fear that Mitt will treat the 47% like his dog, and roof-rack a large portion of the American populace, and in my estimation, to the tune of a much larger percentage than just 47%.

So, the large portion of that 47% that are the elderly using their SS and Medicare are parasites? The 47% who are young, still in school, and not working are parasites? The 47% who are truly disabled and unable to work are parasites?

If you think the 47% are all just Joe Bubba and Laquisha, sitting around on their asses all day and collect government checks, then you are just an asshole.

Perhaps the most damning thing in that link is this:

The discrepancies between Rasmussen Reports polls and those issued by other companies were apparent from virtually the first day that Barack Obama took office.

imontheinternet: God Is My Co-Pirate: coeyagi: God Is My Co-Pirate: what_now: God Is My Co-Pirate: It struck me earlier this morning that Romney has probably never had a real job interview in his life.

I think at that level, when your father is governor and your family friends are all on the Board of Directors, when you're first out of school, a friendly VP quietly takes you out to lunch and gently asks you some questions about where you want your career to go. You don't have to sweat in front of a panel of total strangers and sell yourself with everything you've got. Of course he doesn't know how to convince voters that he's the man for the job - he has literally less experience doing that than your average student.

Wow. That is a very very interesting point. I never really thought about that.

Thanks, I'm busy right now prepping for an interview on Tuesday, and it occurs to me that I probably shouldn't stride in and say to the panel, "Boy, that last guy you interviewed was terrible, huh? I mean, he'll ruin your company if you hire him, haha. So, when do I start?"

No, go balls deep. Do just that. Maybe even whip your dick out on the table and say "I will personally thrust your company to the next level". It can't hurt / help.

Ha! I don't actually have a dick, but that's never stopped me before.

That's even better. They would be expecting a guy to whip out his dick, but a strapon might catch them off guard. If you get the chance, slap somebody in the forehead with it to show that you're an aggressive go-getter.

As an Ohioan, I stopped believed our elections were legitimate in 2004.

Two districts voted in the same high school. One wealthy district, one poor one. I stood in line for 3 hours waiting to vote while watching everyone in the wealthy district walk in, vote, and leave without a line whatsoever. The poor district had half as many voting machines as the wealthy district in spite of having many, many more registered voters. Everyone I knew in Columbus reported the same set-up where they voted. The news that evening showed the polls closing even though there were people at them who'd been waiting in line for hours.

in 2008 I was harassed about my ID and not allowed to vote. I was given a provisional ballot instead.

I don't think it matters one way or another who you vote for. It's a sham.

Polls are nice and all, but not as important as either side is making them out to be.

We use the electoral college here (to my chagrin). You can win the popular vote and still not be President.

From various electoral prediction maps, it seems like Romney would need to win the swing states of Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Michigan to have a good chance of being President. If he loses even one of those states, his odds of winning overall are very, very low.

Wrongo: The best thing about his implosion is that he isn't having a single Dukakis moment, he is retiring the Dukakis moment. In years forward we will refer to bad campaigning as having "Romney'd it upped."

He didn't even need a tank.


He still has a chance to do something so outlandish and comical that people will remember it as the moment he lost the election. So far, he's only been flying the plane straight toward the ground in a spectacular display of incompetence, but he still has a good chance of really showing the world an incomparable crash landing.

I've been visiting and it's Romney by anywhere from 4%-18%. Any poll that has Obama in the lead overssampled Dems by the amount of the lead. So if Obama is up by 5%, Democrats we're oversampled by 5%. So it actually means that Romney is leading.

Also, no poll is valid unless Freepers are able to look at the "internals," the breakdowns by age, gender etc. Once they see that, it becomes clear that Romney is winning but the liberal media and political correctness are compelling reports that the polls show Obama leading. Got it?

bdub77: Mugato: I don't think anyone is voting for Romney. They're all voting against Obama. So Romney could be replaced by an inanimate carbon rod and probably get a bump.

This. The inanimate carbon rod would get 40% of the vote, no questions. Clint Eastwood could host a debate between the rod and an empty chair. It would be the best 60 minutes of television ever.


I was wondering who this guy on my favorites list... this is why.

colon_pow: DeaH: The thing, for me, about Romney can be summed up by two Romney bathroom stories. When he was living in Paris, he talked about ling in what was practically a hut. He said he mostly stayed in places that "often had no working toilet, and certainly no baths or showers." In reality, he stayed in a place that has been described as a palace. It certainly had working plumbing, and, if Mitt did not have a private bath, he had to, at most, share with one other person. This, to Mitt, is hardship. You know, for Mitt.

But for others? Mitt is perfectly good with 120 girls in a work-camp sharing one bathroom, To Mitt, that's a fine, fine thing. You know, for others.

maybe this would be a good place to mention something something about obama's brother george who lives in a mud hut.


Sure. Has Obama made statements about how that's a really, really great thing, and more people should be living in huts while he must live in a mansion because anything else would be hardship? Because I think we really should compare Obama with Romney.

I'm no Romney supporter, but when did Romney suggest that was a 'really, really great thing' describing the conditions in that factory in China? Seriously. I must have missed that part.

He certainly sounds approving in this recording.

Cletus C.: And yet polling shows the popular vote is almost a dead heat.


All elections are dead heats, for now and forever.

The media does not want to influence the outcome of any elected office through convincing the public to stay home or come out by declaring a landslide ahead of time, so they will always carry the narrative that all elections are close irrespective of reality.
