I'm sure Romney will get a big sympathy bounce now that the voters can see he paid a crushing 14.1% tax rate on his piddling $13,700,000 income in 2011.

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. A few resounding defeats, and the Big Money will know that it has better prospects to poison our political system by looking elsewhere for sock-puppet-candidates.

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.

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

BTW I didn't call you names, but then again I'm not a basement dwelling parasite who believes in unicorns and jerks off to Nancy Pelosi like yourself. I am above that.

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."

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.

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. Rasmussen showed Barack Obama's disapproval rating at 36 percent, for instance, just a week after his inauguration, at a point when no other pollster had that figure higher than 20 percent.

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.
 
2012-09-21 04:57:22 PM  

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.

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.

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


We know. Our country was pretty much destroyed as a result.

Marcus Aurelius: I wonder how many points Mitt is ahead over in Freeperland. Anyone ventured over there recently?


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.
