    Dang, Morris is going out on a limb:

    Here Comes the Landslide | RealClearPolitics

    He says Romney wins going away.

    GOP picks up SIX seats and takes over at 53-47.

    Yikes, write that one down. We'll see how he does.

    I'd like to know which polls he's been reading...A lot of those places he claims to be (R) locks are still well within the MOE, the recent trends in their direction notwithstanding.

    OTOH, if the consistent +6% - +8% (D) oversample of many polls doesn't hold materialize on Tuesday, he could be pretty close to the truth.

    If Dick Morris predicts a Romney win, that seals the win for Obama. Dick Morris has that talent for being totally wrong about everything.

    And once more, there is no oversampling of Democrats. Anyone saying that reveals themselves as completely clueless about how polling works, not to mention grasping at straws.

    Your denial of Dim oversampling is noted with great amusement.

    You are wrong, ignorant or dishonest.

    DM has also predicted Romney winning the national election by 5-10 percent in the popular vote and 300 plus in the electoral poll. I've seen enough data to know that it could happen. But I'm not fully convinced that this will be the case and I think level headed conservatives will still be nervous, but greatly optimistic on election night.

    "Meshugge" in Old French means "brilliant."

    He better be saying his prayers, because if he is wrong, which I think he is way off, his career is pretty much over. When you make outlandishly bold predictions, you better be at least close.
