Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

posted at 8:01 am on November 4, 2012 by Allahpundit

Surprised to see neither O nor Mitt scheduling any last-minute face time on the Sunday shows. Maybe it’s in the works and hasn’t been announced yet. If not, then the heaviest GOP hitter on tap is Rob Portman, who’ll give Ohio one last nudge in the right direction. For the Democrats it’ll be the Axelrod and Plouffe Show, now in its 200th week or so. Reason 8,357 to hope Romney wins: If he does, we almost certainly won’t see either of them next Sunday.

The line-up via the LAT:

State of the Union With Candy Crowley 2012 election: Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D-Chicago). 2012 election: Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio). Panel: Former Gov. Haley Barbour (R-Miss.); Steve Elmendorf, democratic strategist; Dana Bash; Gwen Ifill, PBS…

Face the Nation 2012 campaigns: David Gergen, Harvard; Rich Lowry, National Review; Dee Dee Myers, Vanity Fair; Peggy Noonan, Wall Street Journal. Panel: Democratic pollster Anna Greenberg; Republican strategist Leslie Sanchez; Stuart Rothenberg; Larry Sabato; Anthony Salvanto.

Meet the Press Obama campaign strategy: David Plouffe, White House advisor. Romney campaign; the Virginia battleground: Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.). Panel: Mayor Cory Booker (D-Newark, N.J.); Joe Scarborough; Republican strategist Mike Murphy; Savannah Guthrie; Tom Brokaw.

This Week With George Stephanopoulos 2012 election: White House advisor David Plouffe; Romney campaign advisor Ed Gillespie. Panel: George Will; Cokie Roberts; Ronald Brownstein; Donna Brazile; Matthew Dowd.

Fox News Sunday With Chris Wallace Obama campaign: David Axelrod, Obama advisor. Romney campaign: Rich Beeson, Romney campaign. Panel: Karl Rove; Brit Hume; Joe Trippi; Jeff Zeleny.

I am too, because I could have sworn I saw either Wallace or someone else from Fox tweet earlier in the week that Romney was going to be on his show today.

If we do see Axelrod, it’ll be sans ‘stache.

O wouldn’t want to risk taking a question from a “real journalist” this close to the election.
It is amazing that the media is so far up O’s butt, yet he is still afraid to talk to them. O snubs the “real reporters” for morning radio, but they still trip over their tongues to support him. It is delusional.

What drives me nuts is, Obama has not taken serious questions from the media for months, yet he still polls above 40%. Whoever came up with “Make a big election about small things” is an evil genius. I don’t think it will win the election for O, but the fact that it is even this close speaks volumes for the strategy. It might have worked if O wasn’t a bitter, narcissistic, petty man.

Gee, no DWS or Baghdad Barbie, but we still get one more round of Busted Axelrod shoved down our gullets.

Only thing I hope is that Karl Rove asks Axelrod exactly what part of his loins was Obama talking from yesterday when he told the crowd in Ohio to vote for revenge.

I have to admit that the way Obama has been catching up/surpassing Mitt on the RCP average all last week has me a little worried. I know the samples are suspect, but that has been the case all along, and this close to the
elections polls usually start to reflect reality. Some of the state polls are encouraging though, and I hope the enthusiasm gap will get us there.

I don’t know if it’s going to be a landslide or not, but Romney is going to take over the WH, I don’t care what the polls say. The crowds he’s been drawing says it all. I’ll just be glad when it’s over and I can breath a huge sigh of relief and we can start to recover from the four year disaster we’ve had to endure, and the arrogant smirk of the president and the vice president’s faces will be wiped from our memories forever. Amen.

scalleywag on November 4, 2012 at 8:48 AM

Good morning Ms. Cutter. So nice of you to grace us with the presence of your idiocy again.

Flora Duh on November 4, 2012 at 8:48 AM

As we do every week, let’s look at how the liberal media performs in their relentless drive for diversity and inclusiveness, bringing a variety of voices into the public forum:

CNN: D; R: R; D; D; D

CBS: D; R; D; R; D; R; Rothenberg and Sabato self-proclaimed non-partisans; Salvanto – CBS, therefore D.

NBC: D; R; D; R (lib); R; D; D.

ABC: D; R; R; D; D; D; R.

Fox: D; R; R; R; D; D.

So:

Dems 23
GOPers 14
Blacks 3
Asians 0
Hispanics 1-2

Fairly typical, going back many months. Dominant representation in descending order:

White
Liberal
Conservative
Jewish
Black
Non-partisan/Independent (token)
Hispanic (nominal)
Asian (none)

Jaibones on November 4, 2012 at 8:49 AM

It would be a good start to limit the amount of money candidates are allowed to spend on ad buys. That is what makes the media “for sale” and why they try so hard to help pick the winners. Campaign reform ideas always start with who is allowed to spend money to affect the outcome. We’d do well to focus on who is allowed to take money to affect the outcome.

gumbyandpokey on November 4, 2012 at 8:42 AM

While you are not exactly a liar you certainly are being disingenuous. Excerpt from todays Battleground Poll below:

Independents are now split evenly, with Obama up 44 to 43 percent. A week ago, Romney had a 10-point advantage among this key demographic. The ranks of independents shrunk partly because more right-leaning voters now supporting Romney identified with the Republican Party.

I’ll top that – the Madison-based Wisconsin State Journal endorsed Romney (a flip from SCOAMF in 2008). I will note their editorial board has endorsed mostly Republicans since 1980, taking among the ‘Rats only Clinton in 1992 and SCOAMF in 2008.

Second, are the polls still moving? Is this for real the MI and PA polls?

Any resident experts already chiming in?

hawkdriver on November 4, 2012 at 8:58 AM

I’ve got ‘em in the family, the backers for Barry and no amount of facts and logic will convince them he is a fraud. What frustrates is there are millions out there that think the same. Down there in lefty city (NYC) people screaming for water when the fire hydrants have drinkable water. NYC has some of the cleanest water in the USA. There are people in the USA that walk 10 miles to a store but in NYC they won’t walk a couple of miles to help themselves. A pity!

Independents are now split evenly, with Obama up 44 to 43 percent. A week ago, Romney had a 10-point advantage among this key demographic. The ranks of independents shrunk partly because more right-leaning voters now supporting Romney identified with the Republican Party.

Last Week Battleground

Romney, though, is again winning independents. Driven largely by the economy, the Republican now leads with this set of swing voters by 10 points, 50 percent to 40 percent.

That means Romney locked up the bulk of independents.

It’s not what Gumb is suggesting; that the indies ran to Barry.

So it’s a smaller pool, which makes sense, with literally one person preferring Obama.

Technically, Obama went +4 with Indies in one week, and Romney went up another +3. So Romney has bagged +13 of the indie vote in one week, and Obama, 4.

Would like to see their internals — I bet they’re…spectacular. One week ago, they had Zero UP by 1, but were reporting that the internals gave Romney a likely 5 POINT WIN. And they were using D+4.

A week later? Zero no longer up by 1 — it’s tied — and they are curiously silent on what the internals say for Romney. What are they using now, to keep it tied? D+8? D+9?

Hmmmm…Politico doesn’t seem to like what their own poll says, and wants to hide it.

On Fox News, hopefully Axelrod will go first. Mute button ready for deployment!

And the “moot button” is in a polling place near you. Reset!

What will Rasmussen say this morning…..hmmmm….

gumbyandpokey on November 4, 2012 at 8:55 AM

hahahahahahaha…..

You thought Ras was going to say Obama was leading…

I’ll top that – the Madison-based Wisconsin State Journal endorsed Romney (a flip from SCOAMF in 2008). I will note their editorial board has endorsed mostly Republicans since 1980, taking among the ‘Rats only Clinton in 1992 and SCOAMF in 2008.

That was nice; did you also love how the Urinal Sentinel weasled out of making any endorsements for the Presidential race? They endorsed Walker and I suspect their mostly lib subscription base plummeted so bad they found an excuse not to endorse Romney because even they couldn’t find believable reasons to endorse Obama.

So the Sunday shows are D+9. Sounds about normal these days.

First, as cool/cold as it was in NC this morning while I was out running, I’m sure it’s much colder up in Jersey and NYC. For all of our fellow Americans up there, you’ve got the hawkdriver’s family prayers this morning and until you get power and normal lives back up there.

hawkdriver on November 4, 2012 at 8:58 AM

Amen.

I go by only one poll…that is Rasmussen and it is trending Obama more and more…that has me worried.

tomas on November 4, 2012 at 8:59 AM

Step away from the poll porn. Like Rush said on Thursday – if you worry about polls and place a lot of stock in every tick up or down – stay away from them until after you vote.

Why is gumby still here, Ed, AP,? I’m telling you, it’s worse than the ads.

How would we know how to read the polls if it wasn’t here?

Todd giddy with NBC poll showing 68% approval for Obama on handling of sandy

Touting the 48-47 poll for dear leader was the same number for bush/Kerry in 04
…insinuating that dear leader will win

Final Politico/GWU/Battleground poll

Mitt Romney, Barack Obama tied

btw folks, it was decided in last night’s QOTD thread that the little clay boy is in actuality Stephanie Cutter, and is henceforth to be referred to as such.

Flora Duh on November 4, 2012 at 8:38 AM

Would like to see their internals — I bet they’re…spectacular. One week ago, they had Zero UP by 1, but were reporting that the internals gave Romney a likely 5 POINT WIN. And they were using D+4.

A week later? Zero no longer up by 1 — it’s tied — and they are curiously silent on what the internals say for Romney. What are they using now, to keep it tied? D+8? D+9?

Hmmmm…Politico doesn’t seem to like what their own poll says, and wants to hide it.

Rational Thought on November 4, 2012 at 9:02 AM

Wrong.

Often, it’s just the topline number that will be highlighted in the initial release, and as the day goes on, subsets and a more detailed breakdown of the numbers comes.

Most important number (other than topline) is who’s winning Indies, and that’s Obama. And that trend has been going on now in Rasmussen and ABC/Wash Post, too. Wonder what changed? HMMM….maybe the HURRICANE AND CHRIS CHRISTIE.

They simply moved their endorsements to the front page, where at least there’s names attached to the ‘Rat slobber.

Honestly, I won’t miss the nameless/faceless editorial “we” endorsements.
