    The “Carville Rule,” named after Democratic strategist James Carville. The rule stipulates that whatever percentage number an incumbent receives in final polls is the number he’ll receive in the election.

    That sounds like a formula for voter fraud.

    Romney was correct.

    Obama will get 47%.

    I'll bet Bill Clinton is excited over his buddy Carville's Rule. Come January Barry will be available to fetch Slick's bags and bring him coffee.

    If someone said that someone said that James Carville said it, it must be true!

    Another Carville rule in the democrat party war against women, "drag a $100 through a trailer park and there is no telling what you might find". Elitist lefties chuckled at the warning to any woman who might come forward with allegations of abuse by Clinton that they would be destroyed by the rich and powerful political machine.
