Five reasons the presidential race is over, or at least almost over [Do NOT BELIEVE this crap]
Examiner ^ | 9/17/12 | Ryan Witt

Posted on 09/17/2012 8:41:23 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

The United States presidential election is still 49 days, but there is a large amount of evidence that suggests the race for the biggest prize of the day, that being the White House of course, has already been decided. The media is still trying to sell the presidential race as a close one, because that narrative will help increase their television ratings and page views between now and November. However, at the risk of losing my own future page views, allow me to outline five reasons the race may already be over...

Reason #1 – The economy is getting slightly better, and favors Obama...

Reason #2 – The polling numbers are starting to favor Obama too much..

Reason #3 – Romney has lost his significant money advantage...

Reason #4 – Romney is running out of options...

Reason #5 - The lack of a "gamechanger"

Miss Witt writes for clowns like Huffington and Daily Kos, so you know she is doing this to encourage her base audience....and I do mean BASE.

NEVERTHELESS, her thinking will be adopted by plenty of left wing morons repeating it in the press. Be ready for the onslaught of lies.

Hey Mr. Witt, only Kool-Aid drinkers and sheeple would believe your drivel. Unfortunately, there are a significant number of both in this country. =.=

He’s an idiot. Whats he basing better economy on? Unemployment numbers? The falseness of the so called ‘headline’ number is well disseminated now.
Rising stock prices? They are only going higher on Bernanke promising QE into 2015.
The writer is an idiot of the first degree.

Vote fraud alert: One out of five registered Ohio voters is bogus
Human Events ^ | September 17, 2012 | John Hayward

Posted on Monday, September 17, 2012 10:30:40 AM by jazusamo

Vote fraud is no big deal, right? It hardly ever happens. It’s so rare that it’s not even worth discussing. Anyone who claims to take the integrity of our ballots seriously is cynically exploiting phantom fears for the purpose of suppressing the Democrat-loving minority vote.

To keep that silly narrative alive, it’s important not to read the Sunday edition of the Columbus Dispatch, in which readers were informed that “more than one out of every five registered Ohio voters is probably ineligible to vote.”

Furthermore, “in two counties, the number of registered voters actually exceeds the voting age population: Northwestern Ohio’s Wood County shows 109 registered voters for every 100 eligible, while in Lawrence County along the Ohio River it’s a mere 104 registered per 100 eligible.”

31 more counties report over 90 percent voter registration, which is a good 20 percent higher than the national average. The Buckeye State sure is civic-minded! Well, except that 1.6 million of the 7.8 million registered voters in the state haven’t voted in at least four years. So I guess they were civic minded, once upon a time. Never fear – I’m sure plenty of those “inactive” voters will reactivate themselves just in time for Barack Obama’s re-election.

You might think these astonishing statistics indicate a crisis-level voter registration problem requiring immediate attention, particularly since this is 2012, not 1912, and modern technology gives us extremely potent tools for accurately managing massive amounts of data. But Attorney General Eric Holder disagrees. Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted sent Holder a letter back in February, warning that “common sense says that the odds of voter fraud increase the longer these ineligible voters are allowed to populate our rolls… I simply cannot accept that.” Husted said existing federal regulations “limit Ohio’s ability to remove ineligible...

All 5 are completely false

Reason #1 – The economy is getting slightly better, and favors Obama...

No it is not. The current oil and manufacturing numbers suggest the US is all ready headed back into a recession.
NONE of the numbers show the economy getting better.

Reason #2 – The polling numbers are starting to favor Obama too much..

Rassmussen, the most accurate pollster in 2008, shows Romney ahead. Polling only favors Obama if you assume significantly more Democrats are going to show up in 2012 then did in 2008

Reason #3 – Romney has lost his significant money advantage...

No he has not. Romney has a $57 million cash on hand advantage. Obama managed to make up $3 million in Aug reducing Romney cash on hand advantage from $60 million to $57 million

Reason #4 – Romney is running out of options...

No he is not. Romney is in the driver seat. That Obama can not crack 50% in any serious poll indicates Obama is running out of options. Undecided on election day break to the challenger. ANY incumbent running neck and neck on election day is in trouble.

Reason #5 - The lack of a “gamechanger”

See 4. Romney does not need a game changer Obama does. He is the one who is polling significantly worse then where an incumbent should be.

The absurd thing about this article is everything they say is standing truth about this elections on it's head. If Obama were a Republican incumbent President this same article would be written about Obama by this same author.

Reason #1 – The economy is getting slightly better, and favors Obama...

Do what? Gas prices are at a record high, which can do nothing but be a further drag on the economy. The manufacturing sector is shrinking in absolute terms. The labour participation rate is the lowest it has been in decades. People's incomes, in real adjusted terms, are lower than they were in the early 1980s.

This is an improving economy that favours Obama?

How stupid do they think we are?

“Reason #1 – The economy is getting slightly better, and favors Obama... “

She must have missed the employmeny numbers and QE3 news last week.

“Reason #2 – The polling numbers are starting to favor Obama too much..”

He never beats or even matches the Dem oversample...actually the polls are bad news for Barry.

“Reason #3 – Romney has lost his significant money advantage...”

Did she miss the news about Super-Pacs for the last 3 years?

“Reason #4 – Romney is running out of options...”

Actually he has more options than ever, putting WI in play.

“Reason #5 - The lack of a “gamechanger””

Yep nothing happening in the news last week to make us feel like its 1979 all over again.

I have no idea who will win; but, its certainly not over yet.

Reason #1 – The economy is getting slightly better, and favors Obama... Wrong: The real unemployment rate is 100%, no matter what BLS says. That is, every unemployed worker is 100% unemployed and that number has grown large enough to offset Øbama's 2008 margin.

Reason #2 – The polling numbers are starting to favor Obama too much..Wrong: The polls are trending toward Romney.

Reason #3 – Romney has lost his significant money advantage... Wrong: Romney still has that advantage although the campaigns raised very nearly the same amount in August.

Reason #4 – Romney is running out of options... Really???

Reason #5 - The lack of a "gamechanger" Wrong: Many "gamechanger" possibilities ahead, not the least of which are the debates.

the media says the ecconomy is better therefore it is better. QE3 (aka printing more money) is specific to presidential outcome. This forces money out of private holders into investments because of inflation.

CNBC has a DNC political officers and leftist staffers.

There is absolute media colusion so the story is always what the media montage says is the story.

These polls are crap, but one thing is for certain, Hussein will win because some true conservatives won’t vote for Romney. Sad, but true.

I just hope people start believing this. Usually whenever people think “somebody else is taking care of it”, they don't show. And Obama’s constituency is definitely the crowd that thinks somebody else is taking care of the check, so why not the vote? On the other hand, people like me will vote for Romney even if a nuclear weapon goes off, and I don't like Romney.

Ras has Romney up 2 today.
Nobody wins by 2% in popular vote and loses the election.

If September polling decides the election ... Game over.

Last week, I heard a ‘matter of fact’ story on QE3...and the gist was ‘your 401k will be bigger’.

Unbelievable.

“What planet is this person writing from?”

That would be the “Talking Points” Planet in the DNC Galaxy.

Isn’t it odd that all the left-wing outlets are running variations on this and the “Romney campaign is in disarray” memes — almost as if some sort of coordination was happening. Journolist lives.

I hope people have not forgotten what we went through with the two Bush elections.

In 2000, the dems were over-sampled by 12-14%

In 2004, the dems were over-sampled by 16-18%

The dems started padding the polls about a month ago by 10%.

So, whenever anybody quotes a poll, there are 2 things to check for: What are the internals of the polls. A recent one connected with this story, only polled 4% of independents. Funny, the most current polls from Rasmussen showed that the independents are for Romney by 11%. Hmmmm .. no wonder they left out the independents.

Actually, unless the poll is with “likely voters” - IT’S NO GOOD. Secondly, right now, the polls are not that accurate - and they won’t be until after the debates.

Just remember, “likely voters” .. and “internals of polls”.
