Barone: Going out on a limb: Romney beats Obama, handily
Washington Examiner ^

Fundamentals usually prevail in American elections. That's bad news for Barack Obama. True, Americans want to think well of their presidents and many think it would be bad if Americans were perceived as rejecting the first black president.

But it's also true that most voters oppose Obama's major policies and consider unsatisfactory the very sluggish economic recovery -- Friday's jobs report showed an unemployment uptick.

Also, both national and target state polls show that independents, voters who don't identify themselves as Democrats or Republicans, break for Romney.

From his lips to God’s ears. Can it get any better than a true walking electoral encyclopedia who just called this three days before the election?? He has all the information he needs at this point. I might go out and buy a special bottle of champagne tomorrow, and ice it Monday, and drink it Tuesday night.

Barone is the one guy I would believe on this. But still not ready to celebrate.

No going out on a limb because all signs or solid data point in that direction.

You might as well because no other election in the last 50 years except for Reagan v. Mondale in 84 has shown the signs of an election beating like this one:

The links don’t go to the story.

They end up at some strange anti-American site.

I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas morning. I’m a pessimist, by nature, but have been so optimistic about a repub win. I’m in Nebraska so tonight we get a call with an ID appearing to be from a friend. They asked for my son, who hasn’t lived here in years. I asked if I could take a message and the young lady said she was just calling regarding Bob Kerry. It was so unexpected and the only thing I could say was Bob Kerry can go to hell. It felt so good!! Shoulda said he could take Hagel with him. If you haven’t heard the “lifelong republican” just endorsed him.

I’ll go out on a limb, and say that the great yet-to-be-written story of this election will be the Democrats who end up voting for Romney.

Reagan Democrats.

Romney Democrats.

OK, I’m done.

Barone...the "county man", as my daughter calls him, because he can probably literally tell you what county anywhere voted for what candidate in which election for years back and what it means for this year's outcome - looking forward to hearing him on November 6.....

I went the other direction. I stopped of tonight and bought a bottle of bourbon just in case.
