  • Poll: Romney Up 16% With Pennsylvania Independents

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | October 31, 2012 | Ben Shapiro
    According to a new poll from Franklin and Marshall, Mitt Romney is just four percentage points behind President Barack Obama … in Pennsylvania. In September, that gap was a full nine points. “Momentum is with Romney,” says poll director Terry Madonna. Madonna thinks that Romney may run out of time to make up that deficit. But the internals of the poll are shocking for Obama. Romney is ahead of Obama in terms of who the public believes can best fix the economy. Obama’s personal favorability is down from 2008; they’re actually at George W. Bush numbers circa 2004. And voter...

    What a great day! We were right on the front row. The crowd was capacity probably about 8500 including folks on the floor. Gov Romney did not directly attack Jackarse One since he was in NJ being serviced I meaning touring storm damage with Gov Christie. Lots of great uplifting stuff about America. There was a lot of Reagan in him today. Oh....I got to shake Gov Romney's hand. Awesome day! Pics Follow

    So I live south of Boston. I have a LOT of friends who are former liberals, who voted for O in 2008, alot of them are either not voting this cycle, or in some cases are ACTIVELY contributing to Romney's campaign, by either voting or going up to volunteer in NH!! NONE of them are supporting Obummer. Now if this isn't a clear indication, give that this is a clear blue state, I don't know what is, that we are about to witness a Romney landslide!

I want to send them a rational, coherent and brief email that will cause them to reconsider. But I need help in crafting something complelling but brief. I can't think of a better group from which to ask for ideas than Freepers.

    The Boston Herald ^ | October 31, 2012 | Michael Graham
    One week from today, the Boston Herald’s front page will either read “Obama Pulls Out Victory” Or “Romney Wins.” (Actually, given that this is the Herald the headline will be something clever like, “He’s Barack In Charge!” or “Sweet Mitt-ory!”) I predict the latter. One week from today, Mitt wins. I’ll even go a step farther. I’ll ask the question poll watchers across America are thinking but afraid to ask: Is this election over? If your source of news is MSNBC or the Boston Globe-Democrat, obviously not. If anything, you think President Obama is on the verge of a massive...

    The Other McCain ^ | October 30, 2012 | Robert Stacy McCain
    COLUMBUS, Ohio - This will be seen in retrospect as the day liberals began to realize that Obama was going to lose the election, the day The Great Wall of Denial (erected by Nate Silver and the Democrat Graveyard Whistling Choir) proved itself too weak to withstand an encounter with reality. Yesterday, Jim Messina called the Romney super-PAC’s ad buy in Pennsylvania “desperate.” Today? Yeah, Obama’s buying ads in Pennsylvania. Does this mean Romney is going to win Pennsylvania? No, but it does mean that it’s close enough that Team Obama couldn’t afford to let Romney air ads unopposed in...

    I stopped at the Medina County Board of Elections yesterday on my way home from work and received printed copies of the totals for 2008 absentee ballots requested and cast as well as the 2012 numbers as of 10/29/12 at 3:45 pm est. What I found out mirrors the data being worked by Perdogg, Ravi, and LS. In 2008 the Democrats pulled 10,089 ballots out of 27,167 total for 37.1% and returned 9,933 out of 26,351 total for 37.7%. The Republicans in the county pulled 6,589 (24.2%) and returned 6,468 (24.5%). The remaining ballots were pulled by individuals who do...

    <p>It’s increasingly clear that whatever happens to the White House and the House of Representatives, the 2010 cycle is going to be a monumental disaster for Republicans in the Senate. The most likely outcome is probably a dead-even 47 seats for the GOP, but given that the Democrats were defending 23 seats while Republicans only had 10 to defend, Democrats would be thrilled with breaking even — and there’s even a fairly good chance that Democrats could increase their majority a bit. ....</p>

    Breitbart's Big Journalism ^ | October 28, 2012 | Michael Patrick Leahy
    On Sunday, the Chicago Daily Herald, the second largest daily newspaper in metropolitan Chicago, endorsed Mitt Romney for President in 2012. In 2008, the Daily Herald endorsed hometown Senator Barack Obama for President: In endorsing Illinois’ favorite son in 2008, we declared Obama “has a chance to be a great president.” We said, “He offers a new kind of politics. A politics that breaks down the old partisan walls. A politics that strives to bring people together. A politics of hope.”... But four years later, where is the hope? Where is the confident swagger and leadership to uplift the nation’s...

    Just a quick thing I wanted to point out about NC early voting, one of few states that breaks it out by age: 2008: 18-29 14.9% 30-44 23.5% 45-64 40.2% 65+ 21.4% 2012: 18-29 10.8% (DOWN by 4.1%) 30-44 18.3% (DOWN by 5.2%) 45-59 29.1% (DOWN by 11.1%) 60+ 41.7% (UP by 20.3%) Older voters favor Romney...and are showing up in WAY higher numbers for early voting compared to 2008 early voting...while young voters who favor Obama are down to only 10% of early votes (from nearly 15% in 2008).

    American Thinker ^ | October 29, 2012 | The Drive-By Pundit
    The left is already beginning to point fingers at those they believe are responsible for what is shaping up to be a decisive rout in the making for President Obama and the Democrats on Election Day. The New York Times is among the first out of the blame gate, with an article by Matt Bai taking Bill Clinton to task. Clinton, according to Bai, has foolishly steered the Obama campaign to switch its more promising strategy of attacking Mitt Romney as a serial flip-flopper (in the vein of John Kerry) to one striving to paint him as a mean, evil...

    A startling video released today by Jeremy Segal (“Rebel Pundit”) of shows inner-city Black Chicagoans expressing outrage against President Obama, union racism, and the Democratic Machine, whom they say no longer represent their agenda. Further, when money is directed at their community, it is funneled through so-called community-based organizations and nonprofits or unions, and never touches the residents themselves. Community resident Paul McKinley says, “Everything in Chicago is controlled by the Democratic party. Everything in my community is controlled by Black Democrats. There is no Tea Party in my community. There is no Republicans. So they can’t blame the...

    According to the latest Rasmussen state polls, Mitt Romney is in position to win the presidency; he should win at least 279 electoral votes. Romney leads in Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Colorado, and New Hampshire; Obama leads in Nevada. Wisconsin and Iowa are tied. Were Romney to win both Wisconsin and Iowa, he’d secure another 16 electoral votes, putting him at 295 electoral votes...

    The lead that Gov. Mitt Romney has carried in national polls since the first presidential debate should be reflected oon in state-by-state polls — indicating a potential Romney victory on election day, Karl Rove said on “Fox News Sunday.” Rove added that as the state polls reflect the national mood, Romney may begin to see states such as Minnesota, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, come into play for his electoral vote count. “If the margin is as big nationally as it appears in these national polls, then you will have the state polls follow,” he said. “Now we may have something else...
