Axel can take his combover and black socks and go back to acting in retro 1950s porno flicks, flashing young children at the playground, or acting as a B movie Hitler for all I care. I just want him prosecuted and convicted of treason after they lose.

Guess ACORN’s passing was a great loss to the Dims. It’s getting harder to register Mickey Mouse and stuff the ballot boxes these days when everyone can take videos on their phones.

Not by what I see : 1912: 6 million votes, 1916: 9 m; Bull Moose messes up percents as i said.

That’s been the Obama playbook the entire time, to run a defensive campaign good enough to push him over the finish line by a couple points.

You sure about that. Wikipedia says Wilson got almost 3,000,000 more votes in 1916 than in 1912.

Axelrod Says "We won't win by as much..."

And by "as much", the empty suit's aide means "at all"...

Teddy Roosevelt played Ross Perot and helped Wilson get elected.

Axelrod- you will win by less, like minus 10. Oh, wait, that is called LOSING!

Romney is going to win like Nixon in 1972, except he will carry Mass, where he was governor.

That is not what Nate Sliver is saying at the NY Times, he says Obama is going to win by 300+ electoral votes

Ignore the polls, watch the action and the rhetoric.

Obama and Romney are both playing on mostly BLUE state turf. Romney is running the sort of campaign winning camps run, optimistic, hopeful, bland. Obama is running the sort of campaign losers run, nasty, desperate and shrill.

Obama is not acting like a candidate whose internal polling is showing him winning.

I’ve not paid any attention to this guy, but I seriously think he has found himself in over his head from left-wing pressure groups to be more of a mouthpiece than a real so-called poll guru.

He has nothing to lose from being completely wrong, which he will be. He will be a hero to the lefties for fighting the fight, and he wont lose his job.

Hey Axelgrease, is that what you guys call “winning from
behind”?

I’d seen Wilson cited, but it was on the basis of margin of victory, rather than number of votes cast in his favor.
