    Romney has no appeal to the conservatives and nobody cares who the #2 is.

    Obama has been dropping in the Real Clear Average.

    He is now at +2.9.

    A couple tenths of a point and the Missouri Senate seat will be a toss up.

    How do the dems explain how "slam dunks" like Oblather's re-election are turning out to be so tough ?

    1) Polls don't matter.
    2) No one could vote for Romney because he's successful.
    3) Obama prevented World War III. He even got a Nobel Prize!

    He might win he might not,but one thing he will not have the house or the senate.

    That might actually help him be a much better president than he has been.

    Bush got about 0.00% of the vote of anyone left of center in '04. Why did he win? Because of turnout.

    I'm going to hit you with some stats and please give them a look. These are all courtesy of Wikipedia.

    In 2004, John Kerry got 59,000,000+ votes. That is an impressive number compared to the amount Bush got in 2000, 50,000,000. When you get 9 million more votes than your opponent got 4 years prior, you've done a great job getting your vote out.

    Kerry and the Democrat's problem was that Karl Rove did a better job getting Bush's numbers out. Bush got about 62,000,000 votes in '04--twelve million more than he got in the previous election.

    How come?

    Okay, being a wartime president was a plus. Kerry being less than charismatic was a plus too. But what Rove did masterfully was organize the States to put wedge issues on the ballots; in Ohio especially.

    2004 ballot measures - Ballotpedia

    I'll cut and paste from the above link:

    Please
    Please
    Please...

    Take a look at the map on this link:

    CNN.com Election 2004

    See all of the red? Those are the counties that voted for the SSM amendment.
    See any blue at all? NO! This is the proof that Rove engineered this victory. It was absolutely masterful.

    Especially when you compare it to this map showing some blue:

    [​IMG]

    Rove is an electoral genius. Rove got people to vote against Same Sex Marriage while voting for Kerry in every one of those blue counties. Unfucking believable.

    That Romney didn't hire him to run this campaign (if he was available) is almost unimaginable. Money certainly would never be an issue with the Governor. I think he's probably too good a man to invite Rove and his other baggage into the tent. But if you don't win, you can't govern.

    Now, how this effects Romney is as follows.

    Excitement to vote for him...to leave you home in the cold of November and cast your ballot for someone who has alienated nearly every voting block except for middle aged white males who are in (I guess) the 53% bracket is likely not going to happen. Lets face it; if you're working at a warehouse in Cincinnati and you hear that Bain Capital has bought your company and wants to have a meeting, you're going to Kinko's and working on your resume because when you hear Bain; it's not going to be good news if you're on the floor in the warehouse.

    That is why Obama is going to win.

    If bush had the economy we have now he would not have won in 2004 We don't reward failure with four more years.
