Let’s just hope this trend keeps snowballing into a full scale avalanche of ‘real hope and change.’
I don’t think Obama got any votes in NC by embracing homosexual marriage. I don’t like Romney at all, but I really, really, really hate Obama.
A primadonna co-worker of mine from North Carolina was bitching last night about how he was going to leave the state because of the marriage vote. He’s straight and attends church but believes gays should be able to get married, well, except for in church.
I never cease to be amazed by idiots who can’t articulate or defend their own opinion.
LOL OMG this is bad news for no drama Obama!
Romney’s got my vote here in MO... while I am not enthused about voting for Romney, I’m stoked about kicking the first gay president out...
That’s more like it, my adopted home state! I always knew it was an extreme case, and it was only 12,000 votes.
Yeah, but what happens if bozo is down by 15 points before the DNC convention?
2010 was the warm up for whats coming.
Just as I thought.
The SECOND I heard that Obama had come out of the closet.. I immediately thought he just lost North Carolina and Virginia and probably the election.
Obama is making Carter look like a genius.
Rasmussen leans slightly Republican as a pollster, but not 9 points worth. Obama HAS to A) Start a war with Iran, B) Stop the election, or C) Commit voter fraud on an unprecedented level.
NC will not back Obama again, the very idea it would was laughable from the get go.
Obama will not win a single state he lost in 2008, the question is which ones will he lose.
NC definitely is one he will not carry in 12. I’d say Indiana and Ohio are also will be lost by Obama. That’s 44 votes to the R if that is correct.
Republicans need 270 for the win, wich is 67 more than 08. NC, Ohio and Indian add up to 44, so 23 more votes are needed. By redistricting, R is going to gain 6 votes even if vote stayed the same, so that puts you at 50 of the 67 votes needed to win.
So if OH, NC and IN do to Red, and its not likely any red state from 08 is going to go blue, this election boils down to 17 electoral votes. If FL and OH were to both go red, its over. If VA goes red, and any other state with that combo and its effectively over.
I’d personally keep an eye on WI, IA, VA and yes, I’d even say PA at this point are possibilities. I’m sure the focus is mostly going to be on OH and FL, since you take NC, OH and FL and you have 66 (with census adjustsments of 2010 included) of the 67 needed to flip if everything else stays the same. However I think far more than just those will flip
I don’t think the electoral college victory will be as domineering as the popular vote victory will be for the republicans, simply due to how the population is distributed, but the ovrall popular vote is going to be a routing. The electoral routing may not be so extreme, but I really don’t see a calculus with Obama over 43-45% of the popular vote tops. And frankly I can see caluclus where he doesn’t even get 40%
The winner of 2012 will have to win 2 out of the following 3 states (it’s as simple as that ):
Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida. The rest are details.
Obviously more disinformation from RinoRas!
