Posted on 09/14/2012 4:21:49 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
President Obama is headed to defeat in November, and it won't be close. Forget about the polls, and forget about the cadre of delusional Democrats who can't stop telling us how great and successful the last three and a half years have been. Slick Willy can shill all he likes, but seriously, he's preaching to the choir, because the only ones believing his shtick are bought and paid for sycophants, crony capitalists, and members of the mainstream media.
Can you think of a single person who didn't vote for Barack Obama in 2008 but will vote for him this time around? Yet it is easy to find former minions admitting to the dissolution of their belief in the primacy of the "one." These people will not vote for him again -- and they are legion.
Pols like Bill Clinton say what they have to say, and election polls are often designed to say what the designers want them to say. But Americans, ever the social creatures they are, remembering the hopes and dreams they had for a better world in 2008 -- and the hopes and dreams they have today for a better tomorrow -- are reluctant to tell someone taking a poll that they don't like Barack Obama. It doesn't matter how well a case can be made against the man's disastrous and disgraceful leadership; guilt can often preclude telling a stranger they plan to vote against the black guy -- especially today, when all opposition to the president is framed as racist.
Yet, at some point, that curtain closes in the voting booth, and a decision has to be made as to which candidate is better for voters, their children, and the future of America.

“Slick Willy can shill all he likes,...”
Bubba is the rapist-in-chief, impeached president and disbarred lawyer. Great role model for the rats.
Another excellent article posted by SeekAndFind!
It won't even get to that point.
The dopes who got all riled up on hope and change in 2008 won't show up to the polling places. On the other hand, the Tea Party will show up in droves. Broken glass time, folks.
I have been doing my own survey on this topic for the last few months in New York and I have not found 1 person who is switching TO Obama but several that are switching AWAY from Obama.
My only concern here is I said this very thing 4 years ago regarding Gov Palin and that guy from Arizona versu the Obamination and Joe biteme...
There are a LOT of stupid people out there who are easily swayed by the DNCmedia and Hollyweird/Entertaintment. Can they make it a repeat? I honestly can't say. Praying not.
Still, the polls this week have got me concerned.
Alas, my twin sister voted for him last time, and I've tried to get her to tell me who she plans on voting for this time. Not a peep. Truthfully, and judging from her emails and a little "reading-between-the-lines", I think she will vote for Romney, but won't admit it to me. I have other friends who admit their mistake and won't vote for him. As to the polls, I think there are legions of voters out there who are like my sister. Result? I think Obozo will lose even bigger than Carter did, and may even approach McGovern's loss.
If only... But never underestimate the number of idiots who vote on election day. In God’s hands now.
I don't get that. I have no problem saying that I hate his stinking guts.
Romney needs to get the economy back in focus and fast.
NOT THIS TIME! White guilt has been expunged! I realize voters have their dumber than dirt moments, but when they realize this, they correct the error.
A President who governs and whose character is in direct contrast to American Values is a loser.
I remember Carter and Kerry had leads in September and the media was crowing against the cowboy Reagan and cowboy Bush.
There is that, but note that Obama pretty much has to get all of these dopes back, because he's not getting any of McCain's old votes.
“are reluctant to tell someone taking a poll that they don’t like Barack Obama”
Put Obama’s media cheerleaders into this category as well. For them it would be a career risk as well as a public humiliation.
I’m hoping so - first, we need to make the race card a null,
then we need to start dismantling ALL race-based laws and regulations in this country.
Man, I hope this is true. But I cant shake the feeling Zero will win again :( The MSM is in full court press mode for him and they are not even trying to hide it...
and well, the US is full of morons :(
“Romney needs to get the economy back in focus and fast.”
Unfortunately there is NO way to do that quickly. You cannot clean up a mess that took 100 years to make in 100 days. Things are going to get MUCH worse before there is a possibility of things getting better. This is my conviction.
We need a president and congress who would forgo the urge to “Do Something” and concentrate on UNDOING all the stupid things that have been done. I predict that you will see only the very slightest of undoing under Romney and if Obama contrives a way to stay in despite the wishes of the voters you will see full speed ahead into oblivion.
I think it is worse than that. Beginning with "Obama gon pay fo my gas an mogaj", and every day thereafter, when Obama's true racial hatred became undeniable, closet racists felt vindicated.
I don’t think it’s “closet racists” that “feel vindicated”.
It’s more like “we’ve been bending over backwards for decades for these people because of long past offenses, and they not only don’t appreciate it, they hate us all the more. Screw ‘em.”
New York city excitedly elected its first black mayor in 1989. Hhe did such a poor job that not only haven’t we had another since, but NYC has voted “R” for the past 20 years. One wonders what will happen in the wake of Obama.
In an INTELLIGENT Electorate it SHOULD be 80-20 Romney. Sadly 50% pay NO FEDERAL INCOME TAXES!!!! THAT’S why we have a 50-50 country!!!
Ohh, Yes, these mindless minions will vote for him again, it’s just ? unlike 4 years ago where they were so proud to declare it in public, now ? they will hide it and vote accordingly.
I think it is going to be a blowout of epic proportions
1) Obama’s support was MAXED-OUT last time- he got every vote he could possibly get because people were excited to elect the first black man - He has no where do go but Down.
2) McLame ‘s support was so weak only the addition of Palin kept it from being a blowout even moreso than it was. People were not excited to go vote for him. People may not be excited about Romney but they ARE excited to vote against Obama (a ham sandwich right now would get a significant number of votes) So.. there is nowhere to go but UP
It is even possible Romney might take NY or CA (my opinion only!) because he is NOT percieved there as a mean old right wing nutjob conservative by liberals, and Obama is such a total failure they may give him a try.
So... I am predicting Romney by 7 points
“We need a president and congress who would forgo the urge to Do Something and concentrate on UNDOING all the stupid things that have been done.”
Hold your cards, we have a BINGO!
It is definitely in God`s hands.
We have to understand we`re up against a nationwide cult of personality. The minions who support 0bama love and worship him. He is their religion and their god. It`s wayyyy beyond agreement on matters of policy. They are emotionally wrapped up with him in very weird Chris Matthews-like ways. He could take the country off the fiscal cliff (which he most assuredly will if reelected), but these people simply cannot quit him. Don`t think for a minute they won`t show up in huge numbers for him again.
Our hope..our ONLY hope.. is turnout. We MUST prove the pollsters and pundits wrong at the voting precincts on election day. There`s no room for apathy or disgruntlement this time around.
It’s really too bad that the first black president wasn’t a conservative.
Of course, 0bama’s skin color made him the perfect cypher for a fully indoctrinated Marxist to achieve the presidency and be shielded from criticism of his beliefs and policies.
The key is how many of his supporters Zero can turn out. There’s a LOT of people who voted for the messiah in 2008 who are fed up with him now and simply won’t vote at all.
Romney seems like the kind of guy who can handle foreign policy AND the economy at the same time. It's the kind of multi-tasking that is an absolute requirement for the job of POTUS, and it is an ability for which the muslim usurper is completely lacking.
I'm hoping November 6 will be like July 26, 1943 in Italy--the day after Mussolini was overthrown. On that day, you could travel from Marsala to Brenner and not find an Italian who would admit to having been a Fascist.
That's my opinion too. He's already talking about taking 2 years to get the budget in order. In 2 years, there's another election. He should make cuts immediately (regs and $) and allow the markets to correct before getting back into more elections (imo). Any cuts will be painful for a while but need to happen soon or they never will.
Me too. But that total number has to be somewhere around 4 m. There is a net GOP gain in numbers of voters taken off the rolls of 714,000. Obama won by 9m votes. Figure this time 1 m Obama voters stay home (low, but let’s be conservative). So that brings us to 7.2m magic number, meaning you have to flip 4m votes nationally. Now, when you just start with Republicans (15-25%) who voted for him, you shave another 1m off. So iI figure Romney has to flip just over 3m indies nd Dems net.
My scan of the postings to leftist or Lame-stream articles continues to show an overwhelming distaste for the O’crapper Administration.....I think O’Romney will manage to not screw up enough to win and it will be Akin by 10 in MO to the chagrin of the FR Rovian club!
I remember that, too. There was a disbelieving bunker mentality here on FR, right up to the end.
The enemedia might be using the polls to manipulate the public, but you can’t disregard them.
Exactly. Focus on the bad economical figures and TIE IT TO OBAMA’S POLICIES AND SPENDING.
Yes foreign policy matters but most Americans are more concerned with their lack of work and ability to afford food and gas.
Replacing an empty chair with an empty suit.
“Still, the polls this week have got me concerned.”
That’s that the lamestream wants. Don’t be disheartened. The polls are skewed and don’t mean anything at this point. Watch Ohio, Florida, Virginia, North Carolina, Iowa, Wisconsin...later.
MATT DRUDGE on Twitter: Most accurate poll ‘08 [http://bit.ly/uE1pMD] will report this morning: Romney 48% Obama 45%. Reality? Would explain media freakin this week.
I think the second time around the Bradley effect will reassert itself.
- Nearly 50% of the nation pays no taxes
- A large percentage of our population are on welfare and food stamps
The above two groups (though they overlap) will never, ever vote for a Republican because they will either make them pay taxes or take their goodies away.
Then we have a subset of people who are so emotionally invested in Obama and so buy into the phony "hope and change" meme that they will vote for Obama no matter what.
Our saving grace is that many of those on welfare and collecting food stamps will not get to the polls. So long as their basic needs are provided for, they will be content to sit on their couches and watch TV because having to put on shoes and get out to a voting booth is really too much of a hassle for them. While they will tell you they are big Obama supporters, they really couldn't be bothered to act on it because they are by nature lazy, work-shy and slothful.
Still, Obama is going to get his 40-45% of the vote no matter what.
The upside is that 45-48% is probably the upper limit of the vote total he will get on November 6 and he will thus be turned out of office. However, probably not the landslide we are wishing for due to the factors above.
Many here state that it is our misfortune to have Romney as the candidate and that some other, more conservative candidate, would win by a larger margin. I just don't see that. While I wish we had a more conservative candidate, remember that Obama is going to get 40-45% no matter what. A more conservative candidate will almost certainly drive some of those independents to Obama's camp and make this an even closer race.
You're right - SeekAndFind's finding the good stuff...
A “ham sandwich”? I’d say a “crap sandwich” would win.
Very Loudly. "up by 9! Up by 9!"
Then the radio jock asked "Yes, but what were the demographics? Your other poll of likely voters says Obama's lead is within the MOE. What about that?"
Crickets. It was sort of like the "Eleven" scene from "This is Spinal Tap". "Yes, but this poll has him up by Nine."
I love the radio show I listen to in the morning. I've no idea what the host's politics are. He does a good job in skewering everyone. :-)
We’re all 0bama’s 0sama!
My concern lies less with the votes cast, than with who counts them. I understand this will be done overseas (Spain?) What kind of oversight are our “leaders” (hahahaha) providing for this process?
I’ve also posed this question: Let’s say it’s “close” — and we know the State Run Media will use that term broadly. But let’s say it is, and The Muslim simply deems (a la Villaraigosa at the Commie Convention) himself to have won. I want to know, what happens? Who stops him? I have zip, zero, nada confidence that Congress will — what have they done about any of his other illegalities? Yeah, I know this goes into tinfoil hat territory, but imagine how crazy it would’ve sounded in say, September 2001, if someone told you an unvetted Commie/Muslim sympathizer would be president just a couple of years later.
