It has been a great run. Thank you to all the Freepers who participated on these threads.

I will post my commentary after I see the internals

At a base level, the number is the same as the good SAT for the President is still there

Scott has not released information for his PLAT members yet, but the numbers I am looking for today are:

1. Governor’s lead with Independents
2. RT/WT nationally and with Asians/Hispanics
3. Percentage of Republicans voting for the Governor
4. Gender “gap”

If You use the 2/3 Rule minus third parties Romney wins 50.5-48.0-1.5, which means he wins OH by 2-3 points. :)

Scooby,

Internals have not posted yet. Scott released the public numbers early

I am waiting for those and will post them on this thread along with my commentary

Even in deep Red Texas, today is our golden opportunity to crush the last vestiges of life from the state Democrat Party. Sweep them out with straight ticket voting, Texans!

A few worthless fossils of the LBJ’s rule will remain in hippie Austin, the Mexican Valley and San Antonio, and the tiny union toe-hold in the Beaumont/Port Arthur/Orange area, but the rest of Texas, by far the BEST of Texas, should broom out as many Democrat relics as possible today. Help make history. It does matter.

Watch VA which is one of the first polls to close. A good Romney Lead will show that the poll assumptions are broken.

The poll is hoping that Whites don't turnout to vote, that is the dirty secret that they say is giving Obama the advantage.

Perdogg,

That is what I am hoping for.

In addition, I am hoping for a higher intensity among “R” voters.

I truly HOPE for a R:52 O:47 day

I don’t have a magical crystal ball like Nate Silver, so all I can do is analyze what I can see and then make some (hopefully) informed assumptions

12 more hours and we will know!

Yes, that number will be critical. There are TWO components to that and I am waiting on the PLAT numbers to come out

1. Percentage of whites in the final turnout (higher than 74 is good news for the Governor)
2. Percentage of whites voting for the Governor (higher than 59 is good for the Governor)

SDDC,

I would say that it would be HARD for the Governor to lose if he is up 15 with Independents. Logically does not make sense

But then again, nothing has made sense in the polls in this last week

I voted early this morning in rural Virginia. The turnout looked about the same as ‘08 in this very conservative district. I was struck by two conversations with neighbors while waiting in line. I know both voted Obama in ‘08. One is switching their vote to Romney, the other not voting for either one. I also know my 86-year old mother, who is the definition of an independent, voted Obama in ‘08 but is voting Romney this time, but she would only whisper that to me and not say it out loud. I think there are many, many voters in Virginia who are very quietly switching their votes.

And former governor Doug Wilder declined to endorse Obama, because Obama did not kiss his ring. Wilder still has significant sway with black voters in this state, and his lack of support for Obama may make some difference.

I feel pretty good that Virginia will go for Romney.

No, he can't. Even Nate Silver said as much a few years ago that you can't win while trailing among independents. This is not going to be a close election.

I know those stories are anecdotal (the switching from Obama to Romney), but they seem to be very common. I fail to see how this race is going to go against us with so many people changing their minds. There will be almost literally no one who voted McCain in 2008 who stay home or go Obama, so it is a one way migration. Add that to high motivation on our side, and I feel like this should be a lock. As many have said the past couple days, everything feels like a decisive Romney win except the polls.

FINAL DAILY COMMENTARY BY ENGINEER (w/RAS INTERNALS)

The final numbers are in. R:49 O:48. This still includes the good SAT numbers for the President. They did not fall off yet

Let us break down the numbers:

Great job by Ravi, LS, perdogg & SoftwareEngineer covering the polls. The commentary here is better than anything in the MSM.

It is hard to believe that Romney won’t win seeing the internals of these polls especially the near double digit lead among independents.

Here are the RAW numbers using Scott's advertised D/R/I of 39/37/24

Why don't you re-run your calculation with the only change being D/R/I = 38/38/24?

“friggin rain from the central to north FL”

That’s good. Dems will stay home, Repubs/conservatives will not let it stop them. Will increase the size of the win margin.

Intercept,

That is actually quite easy. For each point you take off the Democrats and give to the Republicans in turnout, you would just have to add 1 point to the Gov and reduce 1 for the President

So, if we use the 87% Republicans for the Gov but with a D=R turnout, then the numbers would be R:50 O:47

However, if you use the 95% number for Republicans voting for the Gov, then the final would be R:54 O:45

Cheers!

The Governor trails women by 12. UNBELIEVABLE

THANKS A TON, SE, for all the daily posts and analysis. It's been very interesting to read.

This gender gap thing worries me too. Women make up a LOT more of the voting public these days... Seems hard to win an election if the group that votes the most, is voting for the OTHER guy.

Really... amazing dichotomy in this election. The MACRO issues scream R+4 turnout... HUGE Romney win. But, the MICRO factors seem to say "close win for Zero".

I guess... we'll find out today. I'll be watching Virginia and Philly, early

T4Bush,

By my back of the hand calculation, SAT was a R:49 O:49 day. So it was still quite good for the President although not as good as THU, which (by my calculation) was R:47 O:50

Well I knew that. ;)

But the Freepers needed to hear it from our resident "Engineer". I actually think this is the more likely correction to the Rasmussen poll. I agree with you that his results for R's voting for Obama are just off. But I think his number for D's voting for Romney are off as well. Probably a slight edge for Romney.

So going from 86/87 to say 95/95 is not going to make any difference. But a one point swing the Rasmussen's turnout model is big.

And don't forget: Rasmussen is almost always wrong about the D/R/I. Too high on the D and too low on the R. I'm counting on that being the case this year.

We are going to win!!!!!

One thing that Scott that is probably not including in his polls are “Value voters”. They include the Evangelicals and fiscal conservatives. They were not a factor in 2008 but came out in full force in 2010. They will be huge players in today’s outcome.

Intercept,

Ha! Ha! Thank you for the kind words.

I did not mean for my post to come off the way it did.

My point was that if anyone wants to do a back of the hand calculation as to what RAS number would be on any kind of turnout, just add a point for every point you move to the “R” column.

Many thanks for your great work. I am following you on Twitter too!
