With Karl Rove already setting up the "Storm Narrative" and Ryan keeping a low profile it seems they may be facing up to a reality that conflicts with their own..

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama heads toward Election Day with an apparent lead over Republican Mitt Romney among early voters in key states that could decide the election.

Obama's advantage, however, isn't as big as the one he had over John McCain four years ago, giving Romney's campaign hope that the former Massachusetts governor can erase the gap when people vote on Tuesday.

More than 27 million people already have voted in 34 states and the District of Columbia. No votes will be counted until Election Day but several battleground states are releasing the party affiliation of people who have voted early.

So far, Democratic voters outnumber Republicans in Florida, Iowa, Nevada, North Carolina and Ohio — five states that could decide the election, if they voted the same way. Republicans have the edge in Colorado, which Obama won in 2008.

When Gallup says early voters don’t seem to be swaying the election, presumably what they mean is that, because Romney is ahead by five points nationally, an early voting advantage of seven-points isn't going to "sway the election."

Romney's early voting lead in Gallup may not jibe with the CorruptMedia narrative, but it does with actual early vote totals that have been released and show Romney's early vote totals either beating Obama in swing states such as Colorado and Florida or chipping away at the President's advantage in the others. For example, here's what we know about Ohio's early voting numbers, thus far:

But here is what we do know: 220,000 fewer Democrats have voted early in Ohio compared with 2008. And 30,000 more Republicans have cast their ballots compared with four years ago. That is a 250,000-vote net increase for a state Obama won by 260,000 votes in 2008.

GALLUP: Romney Up 52-45% Among Early Voters

Gallup isn't the only poll out there..and most polls (Even Gallup) show Obama ahead in the EV.

You remember the EV? That's the standard you folks (and the constitution) hold up to win elections.

In Liberal minds, rent free.
Dear Liberals, this article is correct. Obama is surely going to win. It's no contest, it's over.

No need to vote, stay home, get stoned, watch Project Runway reruns, and everything will be cool on Wednesday morning. Kapeesh? Groovy. Later.
