What I Need To Hear, What I Expect To See

I have thankfully been way too busy to delve into politics of late.  But that changes tonight as I dial into the GOP convention speeches.  If I can stand it long enough…. What I need to hear this week from the GOP is how they plan to forgo any social issue (i.e., use the power […]

Palin Power

Sarah Palin confirmed in Georgia she was no albatross in the 2008 Presidential election.  For if she were one, there would not have been such a huge win for GOP Senator Chambliss there yesterday in the runoff for the US Senate. Sen. Saxby Chambliss trounced Democrat Jim Martin Tuesday night, winning his second term by a […]

Carter/Clinton 2.0 – Welcome President Elect Obama

VA is being called for Obama (and so soon will be Florida). Tomorrow I will look at the final number, but what I see tonight is a much tighter national race than many polls predicted, but more accurate state polls. In any event, welcome President-elect Obama. Do well for America these coming four years – […]

Great News For McCain! – Maybe Not

PA too close to call – McCain is very much alive. What worries me is FL and IN. Would like to see those go McCain. Update: Some networks called PA based on exit polls alone – but Fox News notes there are ZERO election results to make any assessment. It is now up to our […]

Good News For McCain

So far Obama only has won VT and McCain has won KY and WV. Amazingly a lot of states are just too close to call, including VA, NC, SC, NC, GA, OH, and IN. Well, we know Obama is not ahead +15% as the lopsided national polls claimed. What we have here are conflicts between […]

Calming Down

We are seeing conflicting numbers in exit polls data and The Fox News Panel was a little too positive about an Obama win for me to now feel confident. To save us all headaches I am going to sit back and watch for a while as the real data starts coming in from VA. As Geraghty […]

First Exit Poll Hints

Update: (sorry folks, starting to put the latest at the top and not the bottom after the ‘Major Update’). Panic in MN for Obama, this could be a night for the history books. Major Update: If these are the pro-Obama exit polls it will be an EXCELLENT night for McCain. Obama +4% PA, +2% VA, […]

My “Prediction” For Today! – Updated

  Get Out And Vote! Update: When you read the link below (here again) I want folks to notice how Obama and the liberal dems actually increased the conservative intensity across many instances of insulting and demeaning the very voters they needed to sit home, not ‘walk across broken glass’ to vote: In 2008, there […]

Seems The Liberals Fear Real Democracy

I cannot believe I am reading this in America: GOP Election Board members have been tossed out of polling stations in more than half a dozen polling stations in Philadelphia because of their party status. A liberal judge previously ruled that court-appointed Republican poll watchers could be removed from their boards by an on-site election […]

More And More The States Go Toss-Up

At RCP the state polls are definitely showing a last minute surge to McCain. The country is going gray as more and more states head to the toss-up category – too close to call. Some folks just don’t want to admit this is happening, but it is and in  some surprising states. But I count […]
