In a conference call this afternoon, President Barack Obamas re-election campaign had one central message for their supporters when Election Day arrives tomorrow: They should keep calm, even if they hear snippets of information favoring Republican Mitt Romney.
My warning, we need to stay calm for much of the day, Stephanie Cutter, Mr. Obamas deputy campaign manager, said, touting thousands of early ballots already submitted by voters. Weve already banked a pretty big portion of our vote.
The fear, she explained, was early numbers leaking before voters have finished going to the polls, creating unnecessary panic and pessimism among Democrats.
Who talks about not panicking---unless people are starting to panic a little?
That's usually our line.
I'll repeat it for the conservatives. And I'll add, don't rejoice too soon, either.
"REMAIN CALM! ALL IS WELL!"
Well THAT is a good sign IMO.
I think they’ve known for a while that it’s going against them. I think they’ve been trying to protect the “Down Ballot” races for the House and Senate etc....
This is the best sign I’ve seen that they know it’s over. They are just fighting to keep the other down ticket races viable.
In other words: “If you can’t save me, at least avoid a down-ticket disaster like 2010”.
Team Obama knows it’s over for them. Panic in DU tomorrow.
IF you are winning WHY in hell would you announce that to your base....that sounds so McCain. His poll numbers PROBABLY ain’t that Candy eye sweet!!
If early exit polls look bad for Zero, don’t look to the MSM to release them.
Drudge will probably release them.
I wonder if Steph’s “concern” has anything to do with this:
LOL!! I thought the same thing!
There is no need to panic! Everything is going according to plan!
I highly recommend creating unnecessary panic and pessimism among Democrats for much of the day, thus lowering turnout.
Oh ya don’t forget to let the dems know that because of Sandy, they get to vote on Wednesday as well, no rush needed.
Exactly. She knows Obama is done, but needs them to still turn out to avoid a down ticket debacle.
And no more angst-ridden vanities here, we hope. `We’: My mouse “Oddball” and me.
“Enough with the negative vibes.” Oddball “Bring it on!”
It smells like liberal panic, and victory for us!
Democrats will find a way to bring into existence the votes they need. That is why they say don’t worry.
Don’t go away mad... just go away.
When do the riots start?When the polls close,or will they wait for Wednesday morning?
Want to see something rather soothing? Have a look at Lea Lane's "election celebration" articles over on HuffPo. She wrote one in 2008 and another one last month. Compare and contrast!
A nice little song for Obama. Enjoy.
Ignore Obama. Panic at election poll results. Run around like chickens with your heads cut off and call your friends and relatives who haven’t voted and tell them it’s no use, stay home, all is lost.
The strange thing is I am close to a local Obama headquarters.The parking lot is empty.No teams of people coming in from New York as in the past.Where do you live (state)?
Omg, in 2004 exit polls TERRIFIED the Republicans, and we won in the end. Exit polls always look worse for us...
...if they are warning their side about exit polls, they KNOW what the Drudge headlines are going to be tomorrow:
“Republicans turning up in record numbers”
C’mon Republicans! Let’s bring this like it’s never been brought before!!
Expect LA, Detroit, Chicago and Cleveland to be burned to the ground by Wednesday morning.
Not sure what I think, though I’ll be in Ohio all day Electioneering.
Nate Silver’s updated numbers say Obama Blowout, 91% chance to win.
PPP calls for an Obama Blowout.
Intrade is 67.8% Obama wins
I can’t believe, after everything we’ve been through in the last four years, that people would be stupid enough to vote for Obama again.
But then, no one ever went broke betting against the stupidity of the sheeple, have they.
reince priebus explained it best. The dems got their reliable voters to do so early. The reps concentrated on getting their less reliable voters out to vote early.
Stay calm Obamaites. This will be a vertical incision from the base of the throat down to the top of your privates. You are now ready for the grill spit.
That’s EXACTLY what I was thinking.
They gotta find out how many votes they need to “find”.
So you’re saying there’s no downside?
Can anyone tell me what she might mean by that?
Weve already banked a pretty big portion of our vote.
As someone in Nevada — EXCELLENT!
They blew their wad early voting.
Pa. And get this no Obama signs even outside of the headquarters. In years past signs all over the place and the republican signs were taken down everyday.I think PA will shock the world tomorrow night.
Smells like a set up for the usual over sampled Dem exit poll BS .
Then the vile Cutter can say we have exceeded expectations bla blah
The evil creatures usually psych ops !
Not playing fair!
Pugs and babies !
A case of premature vote manipulation.
But we are cooking more up as we speak.
Yeh, don’t panic when exit polls show Romney winning in a landslide. LOL!!
The dead have not even voted yet! Cook county graveyards have just expanded!
Exit Polls hmmm
I heard Bev Harris, long time vote fraud expert and investigator, www black box voting.ORG, on CtoC Nov 1 -1st hour, say there is NOW ONLY ONE organization doing exit polling. ALL the networks use that one, and ALSO the same analysts.
LISTEN TO THIS FOR VOTE FRAUD: to QUOTE her:
When they announce RIGHT AWAY after polls close the results, that is not based on VOTES. Only on exit polls. And the networks are only PRETENDING to compete with each other.
And this year National Election Pool, the exit polling org, has decided not to do exit poll results in 19 states.
SO She says if when polls close and they project the winner TOO QUICKLY in these 19, she knows it was not based on either votes or exit polling. So then what is it based on. UNQUOTE
What does this mean? Guess it cant be good. Talk about something easy to scam.
She also said there is wholesale fraud going on with the absentee voting. and explained about this -
She says her group is busiest AFTER the election, trying to unravel the truth of what went on, which is getting increasingly difficult.
Colorado bad news:
Note this: She says is shocking - in Colorado they passed a last-ditch legislation that all election records are off limits to ANYONE for 45 days - like to January - before anyone can look at or authenticate anything. This is ALL records - as poll lists, how many people voted, chain of custody, etc.
She said she just posted an article on this going on in CO.
She said for people to use her site to note anything, by state, etc.
She has posted a 10-minute vid on HOW TO CHECK THE POLL TAPES after the polls close.
