Barack Obama, our next President

Romney: The End
Republicans have been castigating the New York Times‘ Nate Silver for his confident predictions of an Obama victory — his model last night gave the president a 92.2 percent chance of re-election — but Intrade and the RealClearPolitics polling averages have been telling the same story. The Intrade spread is now 72-29 for Obama. All three sets of predictions are primarily based on polls, of course, and it’s possible that the polls could be systematically biased against Mitt Romney. Why that would be is a little hard to guess: if anything, day-of-election registration in states like Wisconsin and the greater proportion of minorities who do not have landline telephones would suggest that the pollsters may be missing or screening out more Democrats. But there’s no doubting Republican enthusiasm at this point — it equals or exceeds the enthusiasm of 2010, though far fewer people overall vote in congressional midterm elections. And Democrats do seem skittish; a bit of depression on the part of their base and a bit of polling error in Romney’s favor could deliver an upset.
But probably not. It’s not just the polling snapshot that makes me think Obama has this in the bag — probably, as Noah Millman suggests, on track to win 294 electoral votes — but the apparent last-minute uptick in Obama’s numbers. He’s up less than a percentage point in the RCP average, but look at the chart above, especially the zoomed-in version here. Or look at the favorability differential on RCP’s homepage, which in the past week had Romney up by 3 points or more and now has him up by just over half a point. The late-breaking change is in O’s direction. A glance at the Senate polls also suggests that this is turning out to be a Democratic year. The day isn’t over yet, and polling chaos and tiny margins may prolong both candidates’ agonies for hours, if not days — let’s hope not weeks. But if professional polling and the judgement of bettors and Nate Silver alike is worth anything, the game is over for Romney.

Three Major Election Day Voting Problems

Problem #2: Poll workers in Pennsylvania wrongly telling voters they need photo ID to cast a ballot. According to the law, poll workers in Pennsylvania can ask voters for ID, but they are not required to show it in order to vote. However, that is not how the law is being enforced. Eric Marshall, co-director of Election Protection, says such problems are occurring across the state, although reports are that minority voters are being targeted in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Harrisburg.“Poll workers are asking black voters for ID but not white voters,” Marshall reported.

How many non citizens are registered to vote?

In a commentary published in Sunday's Las Vegas Review Journal, editorial writer Glenn Cook accuses the Culinary Union 226 of knowingly registering illegal immigrants and then pressured them to vote.

Cook quotes an unidentified illegal immigrant who is on the Clark County voter rolls. The person claims a union representative told them they were "in so much trouble" for refusing to vote.

The right-wing group True The Vote has been prohibited from monitoring elections in voting stations around Columbus, Ohio, and may soon find itself under investigation for fraud, the Columbus Dispatch reported Tuesday.

The Houston-based group, which is dedicated to challenging the legitimacy of voters it considers suspect, had its status as an official vote monitor denied in Franklin County, after the necessary number of candidates to assign poll observers withdrew their support for the group, according to the Dispatch.

Elections officials in Franklin County told the paper that some of application forms requesting observer status for the group's Ohio branch, the Voter Integrity Project, appeared to have supporting names that were falsified or forged.

True The Vote President Catherine Engelbrecht denied the charges in a strongly worded statement and warned the group would be taking legal action.

"This is a final, desperate attempt to deny citizens their right to observe elections," said Engelbrecht. "The Ohio Democratic Party has projected paranoia on an international scale by promoting the idea that concerned citizens would dare observe elections to ensure a fair process. If the Ohio Democratic Party thinks True the Vote-trained poll watchers are legion, wait until it meets our lawyers.”

True The Vote has come under fire lately for appearing to focus its energies largely on minority voters. Last week, ABC News reported that True The Vote had been taking minority voters in Cincinnati to court to force them to prove the validity of their registration, and had plans to send observers to minority-heavy polling areas to confront voters on Election Day.

As far back as 2010, the group faced accusations -- and even a Department of Justice investigation -- into reports that its hunt for voter fraud is tantamount to organized voter intimidation.

Oil production is at the highest levels since 2003.
It takes 4 to 7 years to get from discovery to production of the big fields accounting for the increase, dumbass. It also takes 2 to 5 years of planning before you drill the discovery well, dumbass.
Obama couldn't be responsible unless he drilled those wells himself while Bush was president.
Oil imports are at a 20 year low.
Thanks to the increased production that we have 4 to 7 years after the discovery well is drilled, and the economic collapse and recession caused by the Democrats' ludicrous Marxist subprime housing loan program, dumbass.
About Exxon:
Exxon makes a total of 9.6 billion dollars from its assets in the United States. Exxon pays 12.3 billion dollars just for being in the United States.
Don't be surprised if Exxon, the most American of all companies, decides they've had enough of this bullshit and moves to some other country. The entire industry will follow them, and Obama's Secretary of Energy will finally get what he declared he wanted in 2008 when he said the people in the United States need to pay the same for gas as people in Europe.
You are an idiot and an ignorant dupe.
Repub be quite. My point is just like the tax breaks for the rich create jobs the same thing goes for the Repubs-- If we had more oil gas would be cheap... Just like ALL Repub talking points NO proof. Facts say the opposite about both ideas.
P.S. Exxon paid 2% taxes last year but still managed to make more profit than any company in the history of the entire WORLD.
P.S.S. Exxon's average cost to produce ONE barrel of oil is $2.30. They then sell it to Americans for almost $100.00/barrel. Twist that fact into somehow it's Obama's fault.
.
Some of these companies paid more than 9 percent -- JPMorgan earned $26.7 billion in 2011, for example, and paid $3.7 billion of it, or 14 percent, to the federal government -- and some paid less, like Exxon Mobil, which only sent 2 percent of its $73.3 billion earnings to the IRS.

The majority of Romney voters are still at work and will vote this evening. The majority of Obama voters have already voted since most don't work, waiting for the next government handout.
