Also, I've read the headline 5 times, and I still have no idea what "and assuming they all went out to vote" is doing in that sentence.


I'm still wondering how they were able to get such granularity in their poll.

Being 5 votes ahead in a state of 11,544,951 residents seems too close to call if you ask me.

Oh, my dear little libbies. You pile up enough tomorrows, and you'll find you are left with nothing but a lot of empty yesterdays. I don't know about you, but I'd like to make America worth remembering. Ladies and gentlemen, either you are closing your eyes to a situation you do not wish to acknowledge, or you are not aware of the caliber of disaster indicated by the real numbers of your poll samplings! Thank God for unskewed polls - that 538 pish-posh is slipperier then a Mississippi sturgeon...

Brubold: Basically what we have here is a bunch of pollsters who are doing their best to skew polls in favor of Obama. This is for two purposes. First, it's an attempt to get Republican voters to stay home because they think ousting Obama is impossible. Second, it gives Democrats an out if Romney does win. They can simply cry about the election being stolen or some other such nonsense. They will convince themselves that it was racist voter suppression and not the fact that their guy hasn't done anything to earn a second term.

At this point even some of the bluest states are in play. Believe Nate Silver if you wish but don't be surprised if you wake up the morning after the election to a Romney presidency.

/Independent conservative who isn't voting for either of these idiots


Pretty sure you have been one of the Fark Cons touting Romney and putting down Obama,

How convenient you are now an Independent. Thats unique.

ltdanman44: Fact 1) Romney can't win without Ohio.

Fact 2) Obama has kept a lead of about 4 points +/- 2 the last 6 months in that state.

Fact 3) Laugh at Ohio all you want, we control the direction of the nation.

Bill Frist: ltdanman44: Fact 1) Romney can't win without Ohio.

Fact 2) Obama has kept a lead of about 4 points +/- 2 the last 6 months in that state.

Fact 3) Laugh at Ohio all you want, we control the direction of the nation.

Fact 1 and 2 are true, but fact 3 is not. Obama has several other paths to victory. Ohio is not NECESSARILY the tipping state.

Romney needs it, Obama doesn't necessarily.


While Ohio might not technically be necessary for Obama, I find it difficult to conceive of a situation where he loses Ohio, but wins say, Virginia. Ohio is just a really good predictor for Presidential elections thanks to it's demographic mix even if it's not technically mandatory for victory.

Drakin020: Dem Turnout is already going to be lower this year than 2008, yet these pollsters are showing a higher Dem turnout,

I've yet to see a good argument rejecting that claim. Nov 6th could be a very bad day....

mrshowrules: Why would you compare turnout to 2010 in which nearly have of the electorate shows up to 2008 when nearly twice as many show up.


I was with you right up until this sentence. Now, I'm taking cold medicine, so it might just be me, but it seems like you wrote it, then ran it through a couple of other languages in Google translate before re-translating it back to English.
