Obama Campaign to Supporters: Donít Panic Over Early Exit Polls
POLITICKER ^ | Colin Campbell

In a conference call this afternoon, President Barack Obama’s 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. Obama’s deputy campaign manager, said, touting thousands of early ballots already submitted by voters. “We’ve 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?

Don’t Panic Over Early Exit Polls

That's usually our line.
I'll repeat it for the conservatives. And I'll add, don't rejoice too soon, either.

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”.

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:

My warning, we need to stay calm for much of the day...

Ok - tin foil has been duct-taped to my head. Much of the day is not all of the day. What happens at the end of the day - say 10-11 PM when the thing is called? Then the calmness can go away and the rioting can ensue? Not liking the implication.

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.

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.I really don't think he wants to be reelected.Everyone was told to stand down and this is all an act for the people down ticket as they say.

And I'll add, don't rejoice too soon, either.

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!

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.

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!!

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.

Here is the key phrase from Stephanie:

"We’ve already banked a pretty big portion of our vote.”

This is a damning admission that means they've already banked a lot of what they are going to get, and they are not nearly far enough ahead to make up for the turn-out advantage that the Romney supporters are going to display tomorrow.

This makes me very happy to hear.

I don't.The cheating here is unreal.If Romney is not up by 5 or 7 points he won't make it here in Pa.Unless the workers were told to stand down for Obama because he doesn't want to be reelected which I feel is true.

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.
