I spent perhaps a bit too much time this morning trying to put the spreadsheet below into graphical form: Pollster Time R D R +/- NPR Oct 3/4 43 43 0 NPR Sept 4/4 45 48 -3 Politico Oct 4/4 46 45 1 Politico Oct 3/4 46 46 0 Politico Oct 2/4 44 46 -2 Politico Oct 1/4 45 46 -1 Politico Sept 4/4 44 | Read More »
As Americans woke this morning, they were met with news of the destruction left by Hurricane Sandy across the East; that is if they have any power. Over 7 million homes are without power in the wake of the storm. As it raged through the night, a hospital was forced to evacuate when their backup generator failed, water poured into the subways in New York | Read More »
With the election and Hurricane Sandy sucking up most of the news oxygen, you may have missed the epic showdown in Texas going on between Rick Perry’s administration and Planned Parenthood. The Texas legislature passed a law last session (2011) prohibiting any state tax dollars from going to abortion providers or their affiliates. In short – Texans shouldn’t have to fund the killing of babies | Read More »
One of the most portentous comments ever made by a candidate concerning his own campaign prospects was Romney’s off-the-record remark about Obama having an automatic 47% floor of support. The media attack dogs lambasted him for his “out of touch” sentiments. The reality is that Romney hit the nail on the head months before the pollsters would coalesce around that number. Let’s confront an inconvenient | Read More »
With Hurricane Sandy wrecking havoc in the Mid-Atlantic and New England now is a good time to give to the Salvation Army and other charities instead of political campaigns. Click here now and give what you can.
Barack Obama’s Presidential Campaign would like the children to sing to you. Relax and enjoy.
Mitt Romney may have nothing left to fear from his challenger, Barack Obama except fear itself. Barack Obama could run for reelection using all the wonderful things he’s done for America in his first term of office. He could fill us all to the inebriated brim with hope about his ambitious, progressive, forward-looking and unprecedented 2nd term agenda. Oh, wait…Nope, he’ll be scaremongering from here until we go to the polls.
Last week I wrote about the need to look beyond the headlines in order to have a more informed view on what is or is not going on with the domestic economy. Last Friday, we received the gross domestic product (GDP) figures for 3Q 2012 from Bureau of Economic Analysis, and once again the headline of 2% growth does not reflect what is really going | Read More »
This is what Romney-Ryan thinks is important enough to mention in the last two weeks of the campaign. It is the latest email that I have received from the campaign. Stay safe, give to the Red Cross, and GET THOSE ROMNEY-RYAN SIGNS INSIDE! High winds will turn them into deathtraps! This is what Obama for America thinks is important enough to mention in the last | Read More »
Alan Abramowitz does not like Scott Rasmussen. Who is Alan Abramowitz, you ask? I have no idea either, but according to Google he is a professor of political science at Emory University in Georgia. Abramowitz published a piece at Huffington Post on Saturday that all but called Scott Rasmussen a partisan hack who has no clue what he’s doing. So what was Abramowitz’s proof? He | Read More »
Barack Obama is trying to do something no president has ever done: get re-elected without winning the national popular vote. If he were to somehow succeed at this, he would be the weakest elected president since Rutherford B. Hayes, and the lamest lame duck in American history. Since popular vote totals were first recorded in 1824, four presidents have been elected while losing the popular | Read More »
There are two things that I would like you to understand about this graphic from the latest WaPo/ABC tracking poll (the Sunday 49/48 Romney/Obama, if I understand it correctly): For those who can’t see the picture, the WaPo has been asking Republicans why they were going to vote for Romney. In July 2012 only 36% of respondents said that they were voting for Romney, while | Read More »
As the evidence leaks out is seems more and more clear that not only did the Obama White House know exactly what was transpiring on the ground in Benghazi, it had forces in place that could have prevented the deaths of at least some of the men who died there. Not only did it stand by and do nothing, it callously refused to send aid even though the doomed men were requesting it.
