This is what change looks like.

Coming to a polling place near you.

I just had Team Romney knock on my door, just minutes ago, to make sure I am voting. Never got a door knock for Bush or McCain.

I think Romney has the ground game ready to go.

The Bradley Effect will be blamed for Obama’s larger than expected defeat. Of course, it goes deeper than skin color.. as a lot of center leaning people and even card carrying liberals will profess to intentions to vote for him.. But the reality is that the thrill is gone.. the emperor has no clothes. Empty chair analogy was right. Scare tactics of the left about Romney are not believable.

The RATS are even using scare tactics to scare their own people into voting. One of the top RATS, which one I cannot recall, said the other day to RAT voters “we know who you are, we know where you live, we know if yu voted, and we know who you voted for”!

Did anyone else hear that and know who said it? So scary. It was like a big threat from Big Brother.

I will only be amazed if he loses all 57 States...

actually I'd be really amazed if he just lost my home state of California ... but since that isn't going to happen, I'll just hope he loses the other 56 States...

Just as long as we go into election day with an expectation of his loss, we’ll be OK.

If most expect him to lose, and he loses BIG, it won’t be much of a “civil unrest” issue.

If he’s expected to win and loses by a slim margin, there will be some trouble to deal with. And you can be guaranteed that he won’t say/do anything to tamp it down.

I was able to convert two people in Nevada to vote Romney. They have already voted. WhooHoo! Now I will be working on my Democrat neighbors here in Florida who are NOT voting Obama and do not like Obamacare or the fact that Obama is suing AZ, but they are unsure if they will vote Romney.

ROFL! I was thinking of posting that but decided not to. Such an obvious response!

Every time I see this or a poll or an article Cain’s “Truth” tour, I just wonder where we’d be today if Newt had won.

Or Santorum or Bachmann or Cain.

How many of the hardcore scary 47% for Obama right now would’ve been swayed by a true “c” conservative?

How many of the 3-5% “independent idiots” in the middle would’ve fallen over for Newt when the voting booth current closed?

In Newport News, Va (Hampton Roads) I’m getting several robocalls per day urging early voting (I choose to vote on election day) plus announcements for the numerous rallies being held in our area. Mailing pieces also pouring in. Radio and TV also jammed with frequent RNC and PAC ads for Romney and conservatism. Definitely did not happen in 2008.

I’ve convince 1 Obama voter not to and 1 other D to Romney, and to ensure 1 R voter who is always out of town to vote for sure.

Amen, Bro! I have been saying for some time, here and elsewhere, that November 6th is going to be Chick-fil-A Day to the third power! The lines will be wrapped around the polling places. Every day that goes by, the real people who make America work grow more nauseated with the creeps in the current Regime, and CANNOT WAIT to go and vote them OUT!

Except back then, Republican states were blue. Some focus group found that using red for Republicans helped Democrats, and they have used red ever since. Reagan’s first election, his states were blue, and some TV newscaster said something about the map looking like a swimming pool, or a sea of blue or something like that.

Team Romney just knocked on my door, too. In 45 degree weather and rain. And I got 4 calls from them just today.

So, how did Montana get 4 electoral votes in 1972?

Never got a door knock for Bush or McCain.

Looking back, the Bush "organization" was light years better than the candidate. I've been working with the Republican Party for nearly twenty years.

The Bush "organization" helped a HUGE amount identifying a target Republican market in my state.

Intuitively, we all knew that Bush wasn't a great standard bearer for our (my) attitudes. He didn't become a windbag blowhard until he no longer needed the votes of people like me. Obama is a Bush gift to the nation...make that a Bush-McCain gift.

We will soon see if Romney is as BAD for the country as was Bush. I don't think he will be.

The little snippets that we pick up on Romney suggest that he is a decent man..deep down inside, but not for advertising i.e. decent when no one is looking.

Ann Coulter has told us that Romney is also conservative, really. He and she will get a chance to prove it.

Maybe the kids graduated college and moved away. Happened to Iowa when I lived there.

I hate to correct you on a matter of geography but I believe he said he “had been to 57 and had one more to go.” Thus the smartest man in the world, winner of the Nobel prize and the greatest orator of the age knows there are 58 states in this great nation.

The last Newt prediction I remember he said that he had absolutely won the Republican nomination.

That being said, it’s sure is fun to read this prediction.

I live in Florida, too—Duval County.

The neighborhood is full of Romney signs, we’re getting several phone calls a day promoting Romney, pro-Romney ads are airing on the radio, and the Romney mailers started arriving a couple of days ago.

Gingrich also predicted that he'd be the nominee. How'd that turn out?

I don't care how many states Romney wins so long as they have at least 270 electoral votes.

He said he’d been to 57, had one more to go because the campaign wasn’t going to let him go to AK and HI.
