Romney + 8% popular vote
Bold indeed we shall see soon I guess.
Mine is popular vote more or less even Obama 290 to Romney 248
It won't matter because Osama Bin Laden (aka Barack Obama) is going to win, regardless. Most of the votes will come from the North East because that's easier to fix.
Looks like Pennsylvania has already gone to Obama so that isn't happening.
Looks like Ohio and Wisconsin are going Obama, maybe even Florida, could turn into electoral college landslide.
Yeah no offense man but wow... Did you really think this was going to happen or were you just plugging it for partisanship?
Not sure what your bouncing around is accomplishing........didn't you already say something about socialism is alive and well and winning cause Obama looks to be winning?
do explain your actual politics of the moment........ or are you just doing some plugging for the Dems/New Socialists??
Or as America calls them..
The winners! (For Now)
No I didn't say that but if you think I did feel free to provide a quote (though of course you can't).
And no I am analyzing the results of the election.
I predict Obama: 303 Romney: 235
Either way, I'll be happy when its over...
Soooo. This is awkward.
They called Ohio for Obama.
But looks like Ohio is still in play (?) and Romney waiting for finals.
If it flips to Romney, Obama's back to 254 EC.
If Obama gets Colorado and Nevada and Oregon he still gets to 270.
How does Romney get to 270 even with VIrgina, Ohio and Florida?
Romney can't get Colorado or Nevada. Even if he wins Ohio, I'm not sure what he would accomplish.
yeah the Ohio prediction is based on the fact that the votes left to count are all from blue areas. Even Glenn beck is conceding defeat
I agree it looks so close -- and even looks like Romney's a few votes ahead -- in Ohio.
Not sure why they called it so quickly.
Chuck Todd of NBC seems to know all the numerical predictions and why they gave it to Obama.
Oh well. It's now 284. Obama took Colorado.
So without Ohio (20) he's got 264.
Obama has 290. Give Romney Ohio, and take the 18 away from Obama. Give Romney Florida (29) and Virginia (13) also.
This leaves Obama with 272 and Romney with 264.
From my largely uninformed view Ohio looks too tight to call while Florida looks safer for Obama.
I think the votes out in Ohio are mostly from Dem areas.
Romney said he didn't prepare a concession speech because he was confident he would win.
Maybe he wasn't lying, and they are scrambling to put something together.
I think the vote across the USA is clearly split, with the Repubs winning the popular, and that is no surprise that the archaic electoral is superseding.
Yes, last I saw, Romney was winning the popular vote. I don't know which states haven't been counted yet. This country is sooooo divided.
The last states to close are California, Washington, Hawaii, Idaho and Oregon those have the lowest electoral counts yet and it's pretty clear which party their populations favor overall so logically the popular vote should change towards Obama from soon.
For example California has only 17% counted.
Popular is a dead heat right now. A) the electoral college is a conservative state's rights policy B) Remember 2000?
And your point is what exactly? It darn sure is not that Dems have a mandate for stupid policies that will ruin this country, or lead to dead Ambassadors when they don't choose to protect them when it is politically expedient.......... much less worry about regular middle class Americans who pay the bills of this nation and send their sons to war.....
The Electoral College works, no reason to throw it out. And unlike the democrats if Obama loses the popular vote I will not call him an illegitimate President! This is how we elect our Presidents!
Yeah makes sense but Obama is still only 0.2% ahead. On the other hand Obama leads in Virginia by 1.4% with 3% left to count.
Obama pulled ahead in popular vote...Romney needs to concede, this is odd...
Oh yes. NBC just said popular vote pulling ahead for Obama.
Lead in Florida is growing.
But Miami/Dade County is not counting any more votes tonight.
Yup, I was wrong. I honestly expected the D turnout to be a few points lower than it was. Still holding out though.
I was surprised. I expected Romney to win by a narrow margin.
I figured he would get Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Virginia, and Obama would win Florida.
You really believed the 8% margin and the massive electoral lead?

Here we take guesses and shoot off early information on the elections, current exit polls has Obama up 7% in Ohio with voting closed. If accurate it's probably all over Romney winning without Ohio is tough but it seems pretty hard to believe.

I am very disturbed by the use of intimidation by multi-millionaire (and billionaires) to intimidate their employees to vote for Romney. We take pride in our fair and free elections, but it doesn't look like they are fair or free anymore. The Koch Brothers definitely have their fingers...

Rasmussen has a tie, Fox has a tie, Pew has a tie, ABC/Washington Post have Obama ahead by 1 as do CBS.Gallup has Romney ahead by 5, National Journal has Obama ahead by 5 and they can probably both be written off as outliers and are older than the above which are fresh off the press. Polling...

Looks like Obama is pulling ahead in the polls, beyond the margin of error. I think the DNC gave him a nice boost!

I've always said that I didn't think Mitt would win in SC, and now Newt is ahead in the state in several polls. The GOP has gone so far to the right that they don't want a moderate. It just boggles my mind that any reasonable person could back Newt. If you think we have gridlock in Washington now,...

Romney apparently subscribes to the theory that if you repeat a lie often enough people will believe it.Todd Spangler in the Detroit Free Press "Romney auto ad ignores the facts--and industry job growth in U.S.The ad: Mitt Romney, on the campaign trail in Ohio, repeats a false story about Jeep...
