Skip to comments.PRUDEN: All the signs say itís Romney
Posted on 11/02/2012 4:11:35 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Four days out, it looks like Mitt Romney.
October has come and gone with no surprise, with just a slow, plodding accumulation of signs and portents suggesting that the One who has come will soon be gone.
The polls are tight, and the numbers are steady, but it begins to feel like 1980 again, when a tight race between President Carter and Ronald Reagan broke open over the last weekend. His own pollsters went to Mr. Jimmy and Miss Rosalynn on Monday morning to tell them that the numbers just arent there.
If President Obama has taken such a meeting, theres no hint of it. Both the Obama and Romney camps naturally predict victory, but the presidents men are a little more emphatic than their numbers warrant, which suggests they may be working hard to keep hope alive.

O is campaigning in Boulder, CO and Miami FL.
Romney is going to OH, PA and WI.
The schedules of the two campaigns says it all.
Also MI and MN.
But Long John Nate Silver has Obama’s chances of winning at 80%
Nate Silver hasn’t been paying attention to the political calendar.
Oh well - its his loss!
Why, what does it say?
Romney romps in swing states, O appeals to base in Blue territory.
Boy, the kooks are out in full force in the comments.
Is the Times usually inundated with the Delusional Left like that?
I think the premise of this article is basically true.
Now there have to be people in the liberal press who will try to covertly tip off their audience about what they see is about to happen. They can’t just come out and say it forthrightly, because it might “depress the turnout” or be seen as disloyal to say such things before election day.
So what should we look for in the liberal media as evidence that they know what is about to happen?
How will they cover their asses (prediction wise) and let the insiders of their group know what really is going on? What should we look for for confirmation that they know it is coming?
You’ll get “tells” - such where the candidates appear and where they’ll be during the weekend.
But the MSM will NEVER abandon Obama. He’s their creation.
Has anyone heard of any reports from Obama voters saying their electronic voting machine changed their vote from Obama to Romney? This is really not meant to be a rhetorical question.
it’s not over yet.
there was paranoid troll with a report in the opposite direction, but I disbelieve these sorts of reports.
“Is the Times usually inundated with the Delusional Left like that?
The New York Times - yes. All the time.
The Washington Post and Politico are even worse, if you can believe it.”
But this is the Washington Times. Wondering why the nutty Left would even bother.
still, let’s not get cocky. We need to get out and vote, vote.
This is beginning to look like a repeat of ‘04, where and Bush were fighting over ground that should have been Kerry’s because they went for Gore big-time in ‘00.
Plese, God, let there be a version of “the generals tell Hitler (Obama) he will lose the election. . . and it be true.
From your lips to God’s ears.
Silver’s probably doing what the big banks did with the mortgage-backed derivatives... selling them to their customers but shorting them in their own trading accounts.
Hold your right hand high in the air. Wave it and yell loudly “Look here! 80%!”
And under the table with your left hand you quietly bet on the 20% outcome...
