Most polls show Obama surging 4 days before the election

By iwog   2012 Nov 2, 6:11am   19,563 views   161 comments   watch (0)   quote      

I imagine it's because of Obama's competent handling of the storm combined with continued good economic news. Either way Romney cannot win even if by some miracle he wins Ohio assuming the averages of all polling is correct.

...that only shows you know the polling you are using is BS. It won't save your credibility from being shattered right along Nate Silver's.

Do you have your next screen name picked out Shrek?

Finally something we both agree on.

Did I do that right? That's how you do it right, I mean I don't want the other relevant parts. Now where do I inject my own opinion about what you should have said. That one always confuses me most, as I normally take things for face value as people intended their words to stand. anyone... anyone... Iwog... Buelller?

Christ, you really are getting desperate, grasping at anything. Yes I did put those two words together.

In truth, we probably would agree on a lot of things. I can understand how a lot of aging white folks would feel angry that they are getting left behind, because, in fact, they are. I think we disagree on the causes for this. My rule in this case and just about any other, follow the money.

While the storm itself was not a result of climate change, the rising oceans (i.e. melting glaciers) may have been the reason the flooding was so bad.

Nice try Einstein.... the REAL reason the flooding was so bad was because the 80+ mph wind was blowing directly at the shore for an extended period of time, coupled with three cycles of high tide and a full moon.

But YOU can blame it on global warming if it makes you feel better....

So are you saying that the ocean level has not risen in the last 40 years?

Perhaps but unless the tide flows tomorrow and washes us all away, I don't see how that is even relevant to this argument.

Well, in lower Manhattan a foot lower sea level would have made a huge difference in the amount of flooding.

Meanwhile, in Venice...

But FEMA's response in both storms were piss poor, and to read IWOG saying how great Obama 'fixed everything right' is pure comedy.

http://maristpoll.marist.edu/113-floridians-applaud-obamas-handling-of-hurricane-sandy/

"Nearly seven in ten registered voters in Florida approve of how President Barack Obama is dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, including a slim majority of Republicans. Overall, 69% give the president good reviews while only 11% disapprove. 20% are unsure. This includes 89% of Democrats, 51% of Republicans, and 65% of independents who approve of the president’s handling of the super storm."

Uh, yeah. Sounds like the country thinks Obama handled it as bad as Bush. :)

The funny thing is that we agree that many Americans are getting screwed by the corporate owned political system. You just want to blame the gays, the feminists, the environmentalists, and whole bunch of other folks who are not to blame.

Sorry about the aging white thing - guess I hit a nerve.

"So what are you going to do, close all of the school unions and live in a tent?" well No, I still need some work. But you guys are the master of irrelevant injection, and I commend you for it. But it wont be enough to get your guy elected, you know that, right? What I said or what you said I said, has no bearing on nothing. People are more concerned about What Obama said, then what Obama did, or Not Did as it were.

It was a rhetorical question, commonly used in debate. It is backed up by the fact that you support Mitt Romney, who is kind of a big business, wealthy person champion.

It doesn't matter how hard the government works to restore things after a disaster, there will still be miserable people who blame the government for not doing more.

By all reasonable accounts, and not the lunatics speaking from the right, Obama and FEMA are doing what they can and doing it competently.

Current stats show that Barack has 86.3% chance of winning and is favored by 76.9 electoral votes. Additionally he is up by 10.2 electoral votes since 10/28. I would say that Barack should win this thing relatively easily at this point, the only way Bain has a chance is due to the fact that Barack is only up by 2.1% when it comes to popular vote. Still, it would be a huge upset for Bain to win at this point, the equivalent of cardinals beating the patriots in week 2 of the NFL.

Don't take his bet. On Intrade you can get two-to-one odds, or three-to-one on Betfair! If you feel confident there's no reason to hold back at this point.

There has been enough polling done in the swing states to where there is a reasonable confidence level of the results. If Romney does win the electoral college tomorrow, then there is something fishy going on.

But if Abe is taking bets, I'm in for $10k on O as well.

Homey, I stand corrected. For the record, I did hear about utility crews being turned away on WINS 1010 radio, and did see the initial reports. They have been corrected, as there was a misunderstanding which had been corrected. Although there were a few crews rerouted to NY until the misunderstanding was corrected, it wasn't worth my incorrect rant. Hence no links....Enjoy the glory of Obama's win. I now know how you felt when Bush won his 2nd term... I know the sky won't fall, but I've seen better days....
