joonyer: heap: joonyer: Why don't we take polls for next year's Super Bowl winner?

because the superbowl isn't an election?

high on analogy is no way to go thru life, son.

Yeah well fark you. It was a bad analogy, I know.

PonceAlyosha: joonyer: Why do polls exist in the first place? Elections are the only contest I know of where there's a 2 year tailgate party and everyone predicts who is going to win, and their predictions some how matter as to the actual contest.

Why don't we take polls for next year's Super Bowl winner? Because they don't matter. The contest itself, the election, is all that matters.

Help me see the rationale here for all this polling and prediction BS, is it all just for the lulz advertising revenue?

I'm sorry you're upset that Mitt Romney isn't going to win.

Had your big bowl of paint chips this morning I see?


No I had bacon this morning, but it was turkey bacon so it is automatically suspicious.

Bro,

there is a thing called college football and for over 100 years the winner or national champion has been determined by a poll.

Only since the BCS have we even come close to a on the field winner.

In 2014 maybe with the 4 team playoff we'll have a true NC, but where have you been to not think of College Football Top 25 polls?

Popcorn Johnny: The electoral college is a ridiculously outdated concept and should be done away with.


You know what, I thought the same way until Sandy hit. The electoral college prevents those states who were hardest hit from suffering a reduced influence on the final outcome because of conditions. I think Sandy is the best argument I've ever seen heard for keeping the electoral college. And I hate that fact.

munko: everyone is forgetting about the reluctance of traditional republicans who when called by a pollster, will tell them to f**k off they are busy trying to fix supper etc. on the other hand, libs will gladly sit down and answer the pollsters questions because they feel that their answers might swing the election.

this happened to me when Gallup called me. i told them "sorry, don't have time." yeah, i was nice.



Yes, that explains why polls consistently get it wrong when actual election time comes around. But bless their hearts, they keep trying.

The problem is that he'll never get the nomination again. He can run and run all he likes but he'll always be relegated to the role of Ron Paul... just without the support or the fans. He will have money, but he will never get past the convention again.

Maybe all of this polling information will show that the era of 2 parties isn't in the best monetary interest of the 24/7 media and they need to let a 3rd and 4th party in to play against the other 2. Look at the primaries, they filled a ton of time with all the flavor of the week candidates.

WombatControl: Blue_Blazer: WombatControl: all the inexplicable things going on with the numbers

Care to elaborate?

The Ohio polls are showing a non-normal distribution, for one. I believe Jay Cost is the one who first noticed that.

We're also seeing a real disparity between the state polls and the national polls. Obama should not be winning in a swing state like Ohio by a bigger margin than he did in 2008 but somehow not winning nationally by as large a margin. Either Ohio has completely reversed its partisan orientation (which is possible, to be sure), or the numbers aren't adding up.

It doesn't make sense for Obama to be either slightly behind or only slightly ahead nationally, doing roughly the same in the safe red/blue states as he did in 2008, but dramatically ahead in the swing states. The demographics of the swing states aren't enough to move the numbers like that.

In short, either the national polls are hugely wrong or the swing state one are. They can't both be right at the same time.


Oversampling? Really? Everyone's oversampling because it is just impossible that people in Ohio are actually happy unemployment is dropping and the President saved the automotive industry which is a very big deal in Ohio.

I think Sandy is the best argument I've ever seen heard for keeping the electoral college. And I hate that fact.


I'm sorry, but that's pretty stupid.

1) It is currently within a state's power to delaying election day -- they just have to do it before the electoral college meets (Congress can also intervene, but that's a lot harder to pull off). If NJ was a swing state like Ohio, they'd be delaying the election or giving everyone an absentee ballot.

2) If every state had mail in voting with a one month window, there would be much less of an issue with natural disasters or simply just bad weather affecting the vote. And again, in the instance of a diaster, you could hand deliver everyone in the affected areas a ballot, tell them they have a few hours to fill them out, and then collect them. If people already voted and tried voting again, a simple database that tracks collected allots would catch this.

Given how much of a disaster voting currently is in every state, Obama should propose in his second term that any state which adopts mail in voting and follows certain guidelines (such as length that voting is open, online system where voters can confirm that their ballot was received and properly recorded), will receive federal money to help pay for it. He'll also have the post office waive postage fees for sending out the ballots and returning them.

2012-11-03 06:52:54 PM

Irregardless: It's all over but the shout. Romney can try again in 2016. We will have at least a couple more years of gridlock and a continued plodding recovery. Hopefully we will hit a point at which confidence returns in a major way and businesses start spending all that cash they are currently sitting on. Whomever wins will preside over a recovery regardless of their policies. President Obama will probably have a budget thats around 24% of GDP and Romney will probably have a budget around 20% of GDP. There is a difference but nothing huge. President just don't have thevability to have a huge effect on the economy. Their influence lies almost completely in how much they are trusted and in how much confidence they can instill into the people and businesses via the "bully pulpit". If everybody believes that things are getting better, things will get better much faster, if there is no hope, no enthusiasm and no stability we will have a much slower recovery. I hope that whomever is elected will inspire us but I'm not holding my breath.


As much as I think the GOP (particularly the House morans) will want to continue their obstructionist way, I also think there will come a point where businesses will start saying 'y'know what? we need to make some money. quit yer biatchin so we can get this shiat done.' At some point ideology will take second place to profit.

3_Butt_Cheeks: Popcorn Johnny: The electoral college is a ridiculously outdated concept and should be done away with.

And replaced with what?


I don't remember where I saw this idea, but it seems simple: keep the electoral college, but amend the constitution to say if there is a conflict between the national popular vote and the electoral vote, Congress shall declare the national popular vote winner to be the winner of the election. Each state would still hold separate, simultaneous presidential elections, and recounts would only be triggered under the same conditions as now: a close vote within one state. No authority would exist to order a joint recount among several states because of a close margin in the national popular vote total.

I know this is a joke, but no one will fall for it. Everyone knows that the correspondence between the 20% who are Teabaggers and the 20% who are Palin supporters is 1:1.


So in this Venn diagram, the blue circle is TeaParty Patriots, the yellow circle is Palin supporters and

What are you talking about?

RCP's current spread for Ohio is 2.9.
Obama: 49.3
Romney: 46.4

This same point last year it was 3.2.
Obama: 49
McCain: 45.8

So at best Obama is going to repeat his performance in Ohio, not exceed it.

And in most other swing states, if not all, it looks like the Obama win margin is going to be way less than 2008.

For Christie to throw Romney under the bus, he would first have to have descended in the the now flooded 8th circle of hell, deep below the flooded subways, and carried Romney upwards, toward the light, to find a bus. Sorry, no way Christie makes it back out past the 3rd circle.

Irregardless: PonceAlyosha: Irregardless: President just don't have thevability to have a huge effect on the economy.

How anyone can say that after the Bush administration is goddamn beyond me.

Do you really think that Bush single handedly caused the recession? A couple of bubbles burst that were a long time in the making. Do you think he planned it that way? He's not smart enough for that. Hell, he obviously didn't even see it coming. Presidents should receive neither credit or blame for how the economy does while they sit in the white house. If anything they may have one longer term effects that they can be held responsible for but most of those don't have a huge immediate effect. Think Obamacare - there are some good ideas but the devil will be in the details and in the execution. We will know if it's truly successful in about 15-20 years and the vast majority of the execution is completely out of president Obama's control.


Bush prevented the states from enacting their own regulations on predatory lending. His actions directly contribute to the housing bubble.

That is just one reason he bears direct responsibilty for the crash. Making regulatory agencies like the SEC useless also contributed.

You give Bush far too much credit. Moreover, the driver of the US economy through most of Bush's term was housing. It was not just predatory lending. It was a great many Americans using the the equity on their homes like an ATM machine. And speculators and cheap interest rates driving up the cost of housing. New housing was being built at a silly pace. Home renovations were major business. It all amounted to people spending their wealth faster than real wealth was being accumulated. When the bubble burst, as it had to, "bubble wealth" disappeared and the great hang-over began. Bush didn't make that happen. The American people made that happen by believing the party could go on and on. The American people refused to "do the math".

Zealots of the GOP want to blame Frank and Freddie Mac. They're wrong. Blaming Bush or neocons is just as wrong.

I'm not entirely convinced that it's a stupid question. On one level, it sort of is, because it's obvious why a whole range of people want to poll things in advance. Merchandisers, politicos, media - everybody with money or power "skin in the game" has a use for info about public opinion, and how effective their attempts to manipulate it are.
The question of why we, the people, are so hungry for advance info on who we ourselves are going to vote for next Tuesday is a little more problematic.
Maybe it's a psychological thing. We are a species that thinks to survive, and for most of our existence, an individual's having some idea of what was going to happen next has meant the difference between life and death on a daily basis.
