More and more anchors and writers are discussing the possibility that one man might win the EC and the other the popular vote. Ugh. I don't want to go through another 2000-like debacle. We're divided enough, already. The report I heard tonight says it looks like IF this were to happen, it would likely be R getting the pop vote and O winning the EC. To all my conservative pals here: If that happens, suck it up! I will. lol
Rasmussen has Romney up by 5 maybe 6 points, pay attention to that poll its usually very accurate. If it happens the way you describe its not a matter of sucking it up, whoever takes the EC is the president, its how we do it.

I don't foresee Obama taking the popular vote. I don't think it's possible, unless some huge change happens.
Honestly, I think polls are under-polling Conservatives, because they are and are going to be much more energized, turning out in 2008-fervor. The left, on the other hand... I'm just not seeing it.
I've seen pics all around California that people have taken... Romney signs are out-numbering Obama signs in tons of places. Doesn't mean he'll take CA, just means that conservatives are mad.
In all actuality, I think Romney is going to win by ~9% of the popular vote, and win by ~80 EC votes.
Come on people. It's a circus. And welfare is the bread.

I think it's going to help Obama. It will provide him with the chance to seem presidential, and some people tend to back the sitting prez in times of disaster. I feel for everyone in the storm's path. Living just...

Is anyone else annoyed that the media isn't even discussing this? Romney has only won 18 and there are still 11 to go. They are trying to get him out before the convention but quite frankly I think he...
