Somethings going on...(vanity)
self | 10/3/2012 | self

Posted on 11/03/2012 7:55:16 PM PDT by Signalman

Almost every day, we've been seeing unbelievable crowds for Romney and miniscule ones for Obama. 30,000 for Romney, 2800 for Obama.

We're told that crowd size is not scientific evidence of how the vote will turn out and it's only "anecdotal". Doesn't mean much. We're told it's the polls that tell the real story and it's close, very close.

But I can't be the only one who senses that something, way beyond what the polls are saying, is happening. Look at the size of this Colorado crowd. I think this thing could be a blowout for Romney/Ryan. I think MSDNC, DU, and the Daily Kos could be in for a bad night, a very bad night on Tuesday. And while we're celebrating, they'll be trying to figure out how it all went wrong. (Thanks to FReeper markomalley for posting this photo in a previous thread)

Correct, crowd size doesn’t reflect massive voter fraud.

We could be looking at the most massive vote fraud this country has ever seen.

Coud be 3% factor!!

In the swing states that could be devastating for Romney and America.

I walked precincts today with key state leaders and they’re concerned.

Crowd size means everything during primaries but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a president fade this badly with the people and it really says something the the media keeps telling us that this is a close race.

Obama is apparently the candidate of choice with people who don’t like crowds.

Look at Venezuela.

All the momentum with the opposition. All the polls showed it too.

Then Hugo wins by a landslide with results that were totally inverted from the final polling.

Probably used the same voting machines.

I totally agree. None of what the MSM is dishing up passes the smell test. In fact, it all smells like bad fish.

But everyone has their poker face on including the likes of Rasmussen. One person has called BS. Barone. No one else has.

I just don’t get it. I’ve never had such a strong intuition that we were gonna win without some stats to back it up.

Someone’s gonna be wrong on Tuesday. Either us or the MSM/pollsters etc. We shall see.

I tend to agree with you, but I’d like to know one thing. Has Obama had any crowd sizes like this this week? If so how many? How big was the crowd at Milwaukee for instance?

I realize a few recent crowds were surprisingly small. Was that venue planned because they know he can’t get the same size crowds?

I suspect if Obama was drawing consistently equal crowds, then the MSM would be shouting this from the mountain top.

My opinion: Pollsters such as Gallup and Rasmussen have made their "Romney wins" predictions and are uncomfortable adjusting their turnout model any further. They don't want to be the big outlier. Why should they? If Romney wins 56%, so what, they're still right (and more so than others) on picking the winner. They can save face. However, polling with R+2 (which seems to be the more accurate model), makes them the outlier and laughing stock NOW.

They may be playing it safe.

Just my thoughts.

The race fundamentals favor Romney. He is winning independents by double digits. Pew/Gallup/RAS are all showing the R turnout to be of 2004/2010 proportions. Crowd sizes in the closing days do matter (or at least that is what the MSM told us about O in 2008).

Republicans are doing better in Early vote/absentee than any election.

Romney is talking big, bold and futuristic. Obama looks petty and ready to go home.

This is not 2008 folks. Romney by 52-47 and 311 EV’s.

Agree. Beyond the obvious party weighting issues, I think the bigger issue is that of those Republicans who claim to be “likely” voters,almost all of them will show up, while of those Dems who claim to be likely voters, significantly fewer will show up. That’s the essence of the enthusiasm gap.

Here's a sweeping wide-angle from a November 6th rally at the Stadium of the National Election in USA, taken November 3rd just after Romney took the Early Vote and Absentee Ballot contest in every single Nevada county, and polled a point ahead in Minnesota. Nevada goes dark red, from pink, Minnesota goes from Gray to Pink.

Thanks for walking precincts in CO. I don't doubt these crooks will do everything imaginable to hold on to power. What are the key state leaders doing about the concerns they have?

Seems like there would be plans and preparations for this, since we know that the threat exists.

calm down,
it’s as though republicans are a bunch of blind, clueless, defenseless idiots.

Here in Ohio the state and local govts are like 80% republican controlled. Widespread dem fraud isn’t likely going to be a factor.

Yet another way to demoralize. “Gee, why should I bother if my one vote is knocked out by 10 fraudulent votes?”

Getting Poll watchers out in suspect counties.

Then hope the CO AG has sufficient material to prosecute.

Problem is with mail in ballots.

Sure it would be illegitimate, but why would illegitimacy matter to Captain Executive Order? He’s all about going around Congress, going around the Constitution and also going around God (morals and laws)AND the way “they” are acting they’d call in the UN if the election doesn’t go their way.

Voting machines are switching votes, the military is being disenfranchised and they are assisting the severely disabled as they have them vote for Obama.

We are in dire need of a miracle here. Romney has the momentum, but Republicans should have fixed the voter fraud problem years ago. Instead they were wimpy and sat on their butts...the rest of us will pay with our freedom.

I still prefer to believe it will be a blowout...

I think the whole farce is beginning to unravel and that we’re witnessing the beginning of something much bigger than next week’s wins and gains. The media and the rest of the Left have thoroughly discredited themselves and won’t be able to hide it much longer. Benghazi and Sandy, I believe, will start the avalanche.

MSM reported 20k for Obama rally...the delta center max capacity is listed at 9800. So something doesn’t jive.

Katy perry also opened for him so that made the number even more artificial.

Obama has Dave Matthews band tomorrow I think in VA and the Springsteen with him in Madison.

Kid rock is great but people aren’t going to r/r for the live acts.

Obama is trying to drum up whatever he can to show crowds going into Tuesday.

He will fail when the votes are counted.

Enthusiasm matters, in politics as in most things. Romney and the GOP will again outperform the public polls, just as Scott Brown, Scott Walker, and so many GOP candidates did in 2010.

Did you see that Michael Moore ad with the 97 year old grandma saying 'burn the m-fer down'?

That's how the Dem's will explain their massive defeat. The Republicans stole the election through massive voter suppression, manipulation, racism and outright voter fraud. I've heard this meme from multiple points in the Democrat spectrum.

Expect massive anti-Romney propaganda, incitement of hatred, encouragement of violence from Day One. They won't have to defend Obama anymore, it'll be the Bush election times 10.

Expect sabotage from the Federal Bureaucracy, as we saw under the Bush EPA and CIA, but even more. Obama has been funneling leftists into the Federal Government with a fire hose.

One of my doubts about Romney is whether he recognizes this and whether he'll have the cojones to fire zillions of Lefties in the Federal Government. Bush did not. Part of his failure as President, was that he did not have the stomach to fight. Bush wouldn't defend himself and he wouldn't defend his voters from the smears of the DemoMedia Complex. Bush even joined in attacking his supporters over immigration. By the end, there was no one left, who would defend Bush.

I hope Romney has learned from that failure.

Hate to say it, but Mondale had huge crowds at the end of his campaign.

This is different though; Mondale chose locations that favored him. Obama chooses locations that should favor him, college campuses, and his crowds are small nevertheless.

I did see a report with pic of Obama with a 20K crowd and I think it was in Iowa but Katy Perry was there so grain of salt.. But many Ohio crowds were no more the 2-3K or less. I did hear of one 4K crowd in Ohio for Obummer but that was near Cleveland.

Last week, I drove from Sarasota, FL to Miami and returned after a short visit to the DR. I saw zero (count ‘em, zero) Obama signs on the road to/from and none in the part of Miami I was. I saw plenty of Romney signs, both on cars and on the ground.

I agree, this is likely to be big. Dim fraud is like a rash that won’t leave but this groundswell will overwhelm all the cheating the Dims conduct.

No, actually I think he’s correct. I recall reading about some massively attended rally by Mondale in St. Louis. Saw a photo of it also, somewhere. It struck me as odd, considering how hugely Mondale went on to lose in 1984.
