I have to go with the math on this so I will say President Obama wins with about 300 electoral votes …I live in Ohio ( where I will vote tomorrow)and Colorado and the President will win both of these … I was born in Richmond ,Virginia,and President Obama will squeak out a victory there … and I grew up on the Delaware /Pennsylvania state line ( I know you will be excited to know Vice President Biden’s house is just a few minutes from my old high school ) and Obama/Biden will frustrate Romney and the GOP by winning Penn again …( you have to love the City of Brotherly Love )

now I would not bet either of my houses on my prediction … because you add the selfish Romney backers together with the well meaning ones …and that could be enough for Romney to win …

I know if all Americans could magically be polled and thus the election be decided that way then the President would win but I’m well aware too many of them might not vote

Rasmussen just released their party affiliation data for October.

GOP at 39.1% has never been higher, the 5.8% lead over Dems has also never been higher.

NumbersMuncher ?@NumbersMuncher
Rasmussen party ID survey had D+7 in 2008 (was D+7), D+3 in 2010 (was even). Now the survey shows R+6. If its only even Romney will win big

In other words if you are not part of the management I could care less about your rules.

Frank Enstine on November 5, 2012 at 10:53 AM

It’s not a “rule”, ernestine. It’s a voluntary association to improve the atmosphere of the board.
Surely, as a “conservative”, you can understand.

As I said, trolls come in all forms.

My inner eeyore is riding strong.

I scored it 294-244 for Bam thanks to a micro-bounce the media manufactured at the exact right time by very subtly pointing out how he’s not Bush is handling the Sandy aftermath. Mitt only wins North Carolina, Florida and Colorado, and we are all doomed.

Mitt still wins the popular vote though by a larger margin than Al Gore thanks to a depressed turnout in New York and New Jersey that will hold Bam’s vote total down but won’t be nearly enough to put the states in play.

alchemist19 on November 5, 2012 at 12:48 PM

Praying Romney wins, because I think it’s going to be a LOT closer than anyone realizes. I think it’ll go barely Romney, winning with 272 or 273. He’ll end up with Florida, North Carolina, and Penn IMO.

jedijson on November 5, 2012 at 12:07 PM

Have to disagree. I think it will be called for Romney
by 11:00 pm eastern time. I would not be surprised
to see Romney push up against 400 EV.

conservative tarheel on November 5, 2012 at 12:41 PM

um…I’ve been here for years…which is my offer is important. Some have wanted to get rid of me for quite some time and here’s their chance. It only takes one brave soul…actually since so many people here think it’s going to be a Romney landslide it shouldn’t be that difficult of a wager. Some on here have suggested Romney winning 300 + EV’s. If that’s the case, this is an easy way to get rid of me.

Where are you getting never been higher? I can only see it going back to 2004. I want to see what it looked like in the 80′s and 90′s.

This does bode well, however.

so I will not take your kindly made offer … I would like to see what you have

conservative tarheel on November 5, 2012 at 12:53 PM

They just announced the new Gallup …Romney 49 President Obama 48 …so Hot Air right wing fringe where did the Romney 5 point Gallup lead from last week go ?… yeah ,there is momentum but this shows again it is not Romney momentum

U2denver on November 5, 2012 at 12:54 PM

CA confuses me. Didn’t they pass a referendum that whichever POTUS candidate wins the EV also takes CA regardless of CA’s actual vote?

I didn’t count CA in my EV count for the HA poll, but given the two quotes above, that struck me as possible, given their on the West Coast. If CA Dems see Romney already got 271, many just might stay home because of that referendum.

idalily on November 5, 2012 at 11:04 AM

I could be wrong but I think something like that must be ratified by a majority of states. Or possibly even more than a majority. And that hasn’t happened. So it isn’t in affect this time around… Not to say how many CA voters know/don’t know that, though.

Even? 330+ Electoral votes Romney

R+6? Obama would be lucky to win IL

The incumbent is polling two below the magic 50 percent with his challenger leading or tying him in most polls … and you’re crowing about that being some awesome momentum. Anyone can still win this but that is just pathetic logic.

smoothsailing on November 5, 2012 at 1:03 PM

Popular vote, Romney 51.2, Obama 49.8

In the spirit of a long lost lib poster, COUNT IT!

libfreeordie on November 5, 2012 at 10:11 AM

Without really intending to, I did count it. And noticed that 51.2 plus 49.8 adds up to 101%.

Confirmed. You are a liberal troll.

You do do realize 70-80% of all Colorado votes are already in, and a significant higher number of Republicans than Democrats have returned their ballots?

Colorado has a higher proportion of early voters than anywhere in the country with the exception of OR (all mail-in ballots).

Norwegian on November 5, 2012 at 1:03 PM

My guess is Romney wins the popular, Obama wins the electoral.

No what’s depressing is dictators like you, supposedly on the same side berating and abusing others for not marching in lockstep with you. Why would I (let alone where?) act as if my opinion was the only interpretation? I’ve already said elsewhere that I can see where trollcotting has its merits, but I’m not about to be bullied into following like so much sheeple.

But with your mask removed, I now know better that while our interests/concerns may overlap, if given the chance, you’re just as tyrannical as the moonbats.

I will engage with whom I please and ignore those as I wish.

If you own HA, you’re welcome to set your own rules and even delete my posts as lefty sites are wont to do. But you don’t and resort to bullying. Good luck with that. If you can’t see how you’re acting like the lefties, then shame on you.

AH_C on November 5, 2012 at 12:19 PM

Let’s see: “depressing”, “dictators”, “berating and abusing” “marching in lockstep”, “bullied”, “sheeple”, “mask removed”, “tyrannical as the moonbats” “resort to bullying”, “shame on you”.

Let me guess: you don’t believe you are being oppressed by me and my dictatorial ways?

My response: you are hysterical, delusional, suffer from a persecution complex, and remind me of a rebellious punk rocker who fights against an authority which will never own you and can’t tell you what to do!

You’re basically right. Actually, there is no constitutional prohibition against California dividing up its electoral votes however it sees fit, but the specific law passed was written to not take effect until it passes in enough states to reach 270 votes.

DethMetalCookieMonst on November 5, 2012 at 1:19 PM

Norwegian …wow you are a Sherlock Holmes aren’t you …considering Since from the first day I posted on here I said I was a very proud Democrat …. as far as Colorado there have been 1.6 million votes cast ,so based on 2008 voting totals that is not 80% …also the gap is very small now between GOP and Democratic voters in amount of votes cast

Colorado Democrats are counting on the unaffiliated to carry the day for President Obama … in the past few election cycles they have gone more Democratic including when Senator Michael Bennett beat tea Party Hack Buck ( even though Rasmussen had Buck winning)

It could go either way… but I will stay optimistic that both the states I live in ( also Ohio ) will help vote President Obama back in

Correct, and I’m free to react in turn and say its a bad idea.

You know, you’re right. I was obviously being too much of an absolutist. I should have qualified my remark with something to the effect of:

However, I’m amenable to the idea that maybe one or two exceptions could be made, for the most obnoxious thread-derailers. Especially if, as you suggest, the reaction from said troll is amusing. In such a case, the aforementioned Rule of Funny would seem to apply. Perhaps a gumbycott could be in order?

Thank you for reiterating that you yourself have no problem with trollcotting itself by allowing for instances of it, which undermines any complaints you may have about it in general ( i.e. what makes you in particular worthy to be one of the elites who decides when it should be applied?) and thus making you look like a confused, defensive, hypocritical whiner for criticizing it.

Anti-Control on November 5, 2012 at 1:25 PM

to smooth sailing …it is basically a tie in the national polls with President Obama up a.2 or .4 but momentum does count as Romney fans were crowing about last week and the simple Gallup Fact is Romney has lost a five to six point gallup lead in a week .just the gallup facts smooth sailing just the Gallup facts …
also in 80% of the key battleground polls The President is winning by a couple of points

I am not exactly sure who will win but I rather be in President Obama’s shoes according to the current math than Romney’s shoes …

U2denver on November 5, 2012 at 1:19 PM

LOL, wishful thinking in other words.

Overall turnout is going to be lower than 2008, but the early vote as percentage of the total will remain the same.

Every Colorado poll with disclosed internals has shown Rommey winning independents in Colorado by double digits. Combine that with Romney’s current lead among early voters and he will win CO by around 6 points.

Norwegian on November 5, 2012 at 1:32 PM

I predicted Romney to win 305 EVs but I counted Wisconsin and Michigan I(but not Pa., Iowa, Nevada, Oregon). Take away those two states and it’s 279. Take away Ohio and it’s down to 261 and he loses. But then again if he wins an upset in Pa. it’s back up to a winning 281.

Maybe I’m a Pollyanna but I can’t believe this country will re-elect Obama.

MaiDee on November 5, 2012 at 1:32 PM

ARG – National Poll

Romney 49%

Romney wins independents by double digits again (+12%)

Sample is hopelessly skewed towards Democrats (D+6, same as 2008)

In other words, if Obama gets everyone who voted for him in 2008 to show up at the polls again in 2012….he ties and gets 49%..LOL

Fine, you want to play the trollcott game then more power to you but don’t start berating people that do not. It makes you as bad as those you claim to dislike and is off topic. Which is what you have accomplished with me. A load of trollcott crap pushing the thread off topic.
Seldom do I think admins should get pushy in threads but I really wish one would show up and tell you “conservitives” to knock off the trollcott crap.

I’ll not post in this thread again. In fact I may not post at HA until the next election. Once again I was mistaken that the people here had an interest in political discussion and maybe some fun but, once again I’m shown that it’s nothing but a pathetic club sitting in an echo chamber.

Romney 309 Obama 229

Romney wins: PA, OH, FL, CO, NH, VA, WI

Obama wins: MN, NV, IA

If we fall just short in WI, we still win with 299. Even a loss of Ohio ends up with 271 and the win. This is why Romney was in PA last night.

rockmom on November 5, 2012 at 12:40 PM

I must admit that I seriously don’t think Iowa will allow itself to go Obama again… I have a sneaky suspicion they were somewhat shocked when they learned they went blue last time around and they will not let that happen again. At least, not with this guy.. Just my two cents worth.

Dave in Florida stunned by October party identification.

I’m stunned. I really am not sure what to make of these numbers. If you thought Rasmussen’s September poll of partisan ID was beyond belief, well the October numbers are incredible. To refresh your memory, this poll is conducted monthly and asks 15,000 people what party they are affiliated with. In my Rasmussen Party ID model, I use a 3 month average of these numbers.

The new October number is way beyond anything I was expecting. The new numbers are:

Democrat 33.3%
Republican 39.1%
Independent 27.5%

Frank Enstine on November 5, 2012 at 1:49 PM

Frank, don’t let a handful of bad apples keep you from posting comments here. A lot of the people doing this trollcott thing were just doing it out of legitimate frustration with a handful of commenters (e.g. Gumby) who were particularly obnoxious. It obviously got out of hand here, and like I said earlier I’m not a big fan of the idea, but most of the people doing it are not intentionally trying to stifle dissent. I agree there’s a danger of this kind of thing leading to an echo chamber, but I think most people are aware of this, or are becoming aware, and will probably either discontinue the practice, or at least tone it down going forward. Stay onboard; most of us welcome discussion and debate.

RINO in Name Only on November 5, 2012 at 2:21 PM

now I would not bet either of my houses on my prediction … because you add the selfish Romney backers together with the well meaning ones …and that could be enough for Romney to win …
U2denver on November 5, 2012 at 12:43 PM

And being selfish of what one has earned is wrong how? Oboobi claims that he has the Biblical high ground, when pushing class envy. How?:

So the last will be first, and the first will be last. Matt 20:16

“For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire men to work in his vineyard. He agreed to pay them a denarius for the day and sent them into his vineyard. “About the third hour he went out and saw others standing in the marketplace doing nothing. He told them, ‘You also go and work in my vineyard, and I will pay you whatever is right.’ So they went. “He went out again about the sixth hour and the ninth hour and did the same thing. About the eleventh hour he went out and found still others standing around. He asked them, ‘Why have you been standing here all day long doing nothing?’
” ‘Because no one has hired us,’ they answered.
“He said to them, ‘You also go and work in my vineyard.’
“When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, ‘Call the workers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last ones hired and going on to the first.’
“The workers who were hired about the eleventh hour came and each received a denarius. So when those came who were hired first, they expected to receive more. But each one of them also received a denarius. When they received it, they began to grumble against the landowner. ‘These men who were hired last worked only one hour,’ they said, ‘and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the work and the heat of the day.’
“But he answered one of them, ‘Friend, I am not being unfair to you. Didn’t you agree to work for a denarius? Take your pay and go. I want to give the man who was hired last the same as I gave you. Don’t I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?
“So the last will be first, and the first will be last.” (Matt.20: 1-16)

In other words, Jesus said: “Shut up and take the pay you agreed to and quit looking at what others have. Don’t be jealous because someone got a better deal than you. Ingrate!!!”

U2denver on November 5, 2012 at 1:58 PM

LOL, take a deep breath, leftie.

I am only reporting the facts:

1. Republicans lead in early voting in CO for 2012
2. Early voting comprised 78% of total votes cast in 2008
3. Every CO poll w/internals show Romney winning independents

If you think that translates into a Obama victory in Colorado, be my guest.

Anti-Control on November 5, 2012 at 2:27 PM

Democrat 33.3%
Republican 39.1%
Independent 27.5%

Let’s assume these numbers are true and accurately reflect tomorrow’s turnout. If 90% of Democrats vote for Obama, 90% of Republicans vote for Romney, and independents are split 50/50, then…

Romney wins 52-48.

Obama would have to win 58% of all independents to overcome a Republican turnout edge like that.

The Republicans can’t be so lucky as to get a 6 point turnout edge tomorrow, can they?

Did God tell you Romney would get 340 electoral points? If so its probably true.

Majority of food stamp receivers are mostly republicans in rural america.

KEEP VOTING FOR YOUR INTERESTS GUYS!!!!

With all these dang Hispanics moving in thou, we could loose Texas as a safely red state in the next 20 years. If that happens we might have to say that god doesn’t cause rape ( even tho we know he does) just to have a shot at winning a national election!

So we now dedicate one quarter of comments to trollcotting as HA descends into a dailyKos/Huffington atmosphere? I always thot that this was a place to comment and discuss. Gumby is welcome to post its opinions, no matter how misguided or?

Better yet, ask yourself this: why hasn’t gumby been banned yet, in spite of your pleas?

So no I won’t kiss off until I’ve been banned. Furthermore, I’m of the opinion that evil spreads only when good folks say nothing. As long as gumby or any other is spouting nonsense/evil, it needs to be countered — if necessary seventy times seven.

They are not here to seek your approval or winning popularity contest. Their aim, especially the paid troll from the campaign, is to cast seeds of doubt in the mind of whoever visit HotAir and read the comments. They will not stop just because they are ignored and not responded to.

No, it is important to counter them, but you don’t have to engage in direct debate with them. To pretend like they aren’t there lets them spread their BS unchallenged. What was stupid was when people would demand that Gumby and others answer lists of questions. They would ask over and over, “why haven’t you answered my questions yet, Gumby?! I’m waiting.”

Challenging or countering someone’s spam does not require you to quote their message or even mention them by name in your response.

Some of you may be able to pretend like the trolls are not here for the remaining day or two before the election, but I think we all know that this “trollcott” would never have lasted if it had had begun months ago.

kingsjester on November 5, 2012 at 3:51 PM

I agree the “poll troll” was completely out of control and was permitted to disrupt dozens of threads.

IMHO the HA PTB should have done something about it awhile ago.

Posters got so frustrated and angry they decided to try to do something about it themselves. Perfectly understandable.

However, seems whenever that happens on a site the posters who like having trolls around to play with get upset, and then there is disagreement about who is a troll and who isn’t, and what the definition of trolling is, etc.

When that happens the trolls have won because they have posters who agree on most things at each other’s throats. Which is exactly what the trolls want.

Bottom line, IMHO, is this is caused by a faulire of the PTB to police the site and do something about the most deliberately disruptive trouble-making trolls.

If it continues I bug out and find somewhere else to post.

farsighted on November 5, 2012 at 4:00 PM

If you think 2012 will be a re-run of 2010 in Colorado, think again. You do realize the state GOP was in utter disarray in 2010 with much lower GOP voter turnout than nationwide? (Dan Maes, Tancredo, etc). Not to mention the fact that Bennett won early voting in 2010 just like Romney is doing now (albeit Romney is winning by a larger margin).

But hey, whatever you have to do to continue living in that liberal bubble of yours.

You are in denial of your own dictatorial inclination, which contributes to your obnoxious intolerance.

Carry on with your silly reindeer games.

You crack me up with your uptight, unwarranted, self-superior attitude, which seems to be a common thread amongst the most vocal anti-trollcotters, doesn’t it? :)

Oxymoron because you’re out there beating down those who don’t agree with the trollcott. In other words you’re about controlling who others respond to. Same thing with Koolaid.

I’m only uptight in the sense of asking where do you get off telling me or others to not respond to trolls. That simple.

You want to ignore gumby? go right ahead, it’s your right. If I want to respond, I will – because it’s my privilege to opine on these threads until the HA admin says otherwise. And this mindset makes me a dictator? Cognitive dissonance much?

So here I go again:

So are you are back to GOTV and Early Voting as the bombshell (atomic?) win for Obama, or are you still stuck on the hurricane which isn’t going to affect voting that much in swing states.
It’s all common sense.

Being strongly ahead in early voting in OH, all the battleground state polls being released showing Obama ahead, the good economic/jobs news (with more to come tomorrow), and the RCP national average showing Obama ahead all show Obama has the momentum in the final week. And, yes, the hurricane seems to be the moment that fate intervened on Obama’s behalf. Romney lost his momentum and never got it back and Obama started rising in the national polls. Add in Christie treating Obama like The Messiah, and it’s pretty easy to figure out he’s winning re-election.

I’m so saving this prediction to beat the plasticine Gumby upside the head tomorrow and going forward.

Say… You wouldn’t be a re-juvenated crrr6 would you.

She was pretty bold with a few predictions like “This will never come back to bite me”

Hey Gumby, last chance to make your predictions before sundown. LOL

I can’t take you seriously, as I find you to be a humorless, completely in-denial, projecting and controlling dumb@ss, so I bid you, “Goodbye!”

In denial of what? Projecting what? Controlling whom? It’s simple. Don’t tell others how to comment. But it’s understandable that you can’t take me seriously, because you can’t accept my desire to engage or refute trolls.

Let me know when you put up your own blog and I’ll avoid it and so spare you the trouble of controlling my comments.

If jerks like you had simply stuck to yelling “trollcott” and left off the verbal abuse, this issue would have died days ago. So who’s humorless? Putz!
