    I come bearing pictures! Below are both Rasmussen's and Gallup's final numbers on party ID for 2004 and 2008 versus the actual breakdown on election day as well as their breakdowns for this year.

    Rasmussen is a bit more accurate than Gallup, but the important thing to note is that they both show that Republicans have the edge going into the the final week before the election. If Romney wins Indies by 8+ percentage points as most of the national polls are showing, he wins in a landslide.

    Discuss.

    It's going to be one of the closest elections in history.

    I have been trying to explain this for weeks, not we have the Final Numbers. Most of the polls were looking at right now are based on the 2008 Turn out numbers. Which was Dems plus 7. I have been saying for some time it will likely be more like Dems plus 3. This seems to suggest it might even be far worse than that for Dems this time around.

    The most EXCITING thing about a Romney victory is watching the egomaniacal, fractious, America-hating, unqualified IDIOT, Barack Obama, slither off into the sunset.

    The four year nightmare will be OVER.

    As we get closer and closer to election day, I become slightly more convinced that the election won't be all that close. Assuming Republicans do have the edge going into the final week, and assuming Romney has flipped Independents from 2008, it's hard for me to believe that Obama can win, or even keep it close, without a great deal of R's crossing the isle to vote for him.

    That is exactly what I see given polling and early voting results. Why do you think it unlikely?

    I'm really apprehensive about this. I'm afraid minorities and woman will put barry over the top.

    You guys remind me of what I was thinking like back in 2004. I tried to convince myself Kerry was going to win but alas it was not to be. But please continue with your fantasies it's fun to watch

    As we get closer to the election, Rassmussen will more closely match other polls. Romneys leads will gradually diminish
