Gillespie: Hate to break it to you, Team O, but the map has expanded

posted at 7:31 pm on November 4, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

Earlier this week, certain Team Obama members and loyalists insisted that Team Romney’s relatively late-in-the-game push into some new battlegrounds definitively means that Team R has at last figured out that they cannot win with the electoral map they originally planned, characterizing their movements as “desperate” and “flailing” to mark off some more territory. Obama campaign senior adviser David Plouffe echoed those sentiments on Sunday, contending that Team Obama is not at all in the defense-mode that might appear to the naked eye, but that they’re actually in offense-mode.

Citing the president’s slight leads in battleground states and the upper hand on early voting, Obama campaign senior adviser David Plouffe sounded confident about Obama’s chances for reelection.

“We’ve always known this was going to be a close race, but it is going to be decided in the battleground states, and we think in those states … we have an important lead,” Plouffe said on ABC’s This Week. “I’m confident two days from now the president will be reelected. We have the support to win this election.”

Plouffe concentrated on Obama’s ground game, especially in Pennsylvania, where the Romney campaign has focused attention in recent days. Plouffe called it a “desperate ploy at the end of a campaign,” and said Romney would have to win two-thirds of independent voters there to carry the state.

As much as Team Obama would no doubt like us to believe that Team Romney’s recent ventures into Pennsylvania are merely the deluded backfirings of a broken campaign machine, there was a pretty organic surge in Romney’s direction after that first game-changing presidential debate, and Team Romney is now just helping to fuel it along. Picking up on what’s already happening is not a “desperate” move, it’s a savvy one.

Romney also leads in a lot of polls of independents by healthy margins, and as for the early voting in battleground states, does that mean in states like, oh, say… Ohio, where the swing towards Republicans in early voting has knocked out Obama’s winning margin there from 2008, perhaps?

Team O is aggressively pushing this narrative that the Romney campaign has gone full-on madcap in their last-ditch push to ‘expand the map,’ but, news flash: The electoral map has expanded. The results of Obama’s big-government spend-happy policies, not to mention their waging a severely negative and small-potatoes campaign that hasn’t exactly hearkened back to the Hopenchange spirit of 2008, just means that not as many people are as pumped about voting for him this time around, plain and simple. The Obama campaign won’t admit it, of course, but as Romney campaign senior adviser Ed Gillespie summed up on ABC earlier, our incumbent president is in deep trouble.

You know, four years ago — it’s — it’s a remarkable juxtaposition here that Mitt Romney will be in the suburbs of Philadelphia today, and you know, four years ago, Barack Obama was in Indiana. When you look at where this map has gone, it reflects the — the change and the direction and the momentum toward Gov. Romney. And the fact is that a state like Pennsylvania being in play, a poll out today showing Michigan a dead heat, you know, this — the map has expanded. Wisconsin, Minnesota has expanded our way. We feel very confident in terms of where we are in the — in the target states. We’ve been able to expand into Pennsylvania while fully funding and staying current with everything we need to be doing in Florida and Virginia and Ohio and all of the other target states.

And, I’ll bet, on Intrade or anywhere, that the Obama campaign is gaming Intrade on this, as might have been done in 2008 as well.

I’m sure Soros, et al., have figured a way to completely scam Intrade and are doing it.

TXUS on November 4, 2012 at 8:31 PM

I’m not one for conspiracies, but it actually wouldn’t be that hard. For all the power of its brand (in the niche world of this sort of thing, anyway), there isn’t really a lot of action on the Intrade markets. Not at the level you would expect relative to the coverage it gets. A few thousand dollars judiciously applied could dramatically alter the scope of the markets. Not enough to fend off news events, mind you, but enough to change the picture dramatically. And even major negative news events could be tamed if you were willing to put close to a hundred grand into it.

(I jumped through the hoops and ran there during the primaries I had a winning streak flipping GOP underdogs going but crapped out because I never saw the Santorum rise in a million years.)

Unfortunately, Romney started “fueling along” his momentum among the PA electorate only after that momentum had stagnated.
If Romney had made the same effort right after the first date, he might have picked up another 4 points and be tied in the state.

As it stands now, it looks like too little, too late. Why the campaign didn’t move aggressively when it had momentum on it’s side is hard to fathom.

Actually, I’ve hired a choreographer to come up with a dance for Tuesday night’s party, which will be called “Humpbot Style”, kind of a cross between “Gangnum Style” and the “Alligator.” She’s mixing our Humbot with Gangnum Style, and the folks at my ranch who are working on it tell me it’s going to be quite entertaining.

You must post video’s of people at your party doing the Humpbot Dance…

I heard CNN came out with a poll that had Romney tied with Obama at 49…and it had a split of 41D..R30..I29..Indies went 22% higher for Romney. Imagine that poll would be if Democrats and Republicans had parity.

Thanks ya’ll for everything.

Now let’s go Tuesday and take the day.

Thank you too. I knew/know that I generally am on the right track. HA has confirmed over the years that there a re many many rational people not ready to give up. 2010 was sweet, 2012 will be the biggest, nasty sloppy dessert ever.

FU Captain I won. Go lick your wounds in Pukealotta or wherever in HI you go.

Latest poll from CNN.

It has Obama and Romney tied at 49%. Noe for the insanely stupid from this poll.

“Among those likely voters, 41% described themselves as Democrats, 29% described themselves as Independents, and 30% described themselves as Republicans.”

D+11!!!!!!!

=============Total=Dem.==Ind.==Rep.
=============—–=—–=—–=—–
Obama,Biden==49%===93%===37%===1%
Romney,Ryan==49%===5%====59%===99%

There is no doubt in my mind they cooked the books on this poll after seeing Romney up by 22 points among independents. D+11? Really??

Readjusting for an R+2.8 turnout (my current model adjustment until Rasmussen updates its party identification page) it becomes 55.5 to 42.6, Romney. I think that is too optimistic. I think this CNN poll is just plain garbage from top to bottom.

We don’t have to imagine it. On Tuesday the final poll will make it all clear, even to them :-)

MJBrutus on November 4, 2012 at 8:57 PM

Stuttering, sputtering little trolls,
Under a trollcott, no more polls.
Election looming, mend your ways,
The One is finished, two more days.

One of your best!

Now that’s just plain selfish. We can’t join you in heckling Obama?

Why thank you, TXUS! I’m thinking of putting them all together in one longer work and calling it ‘Ode on the Trolls’. lol!

thatsafactjack on November 4, 2012 at 8:59 PM

TROLLCOTT!

Liam on November 4, 2012 at 8:53 PM

…NO TROLLS!…(feels like ThinkProgs and HuffPost doesn’t it?)

KOOLAID2 on November 4, 2012 at 8:59 PM

Unfortunately I am from the Peoples Republic of Massachusetts so my vote will just go in the minority column. I do not comment, but rather enjoy reading comments from true conservatives. I especially enjoy this TROLLCOTT yoou have adapted. You know trolls remind me of vultures travelling in ever concentric circles, and when Romney is elected, hopefully they will disappear up their own a–holes and never be heard of again.

Do some more commenting. I like what you have to say…

OmahaConservative on November 4, 2012 at 9:01 PM

I can’t wait till Januart 20th when Obama will fly out on Air Force One for the last time.

Axelrod can shave that crap off, I just want him to crawl back to Chicago
Knowing him, he will plead voter fraud even when Romney exceeds 310 ev.

They know the polls are cooked and that they are going down
