Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

The verdict is in on polling for the 2012 presidential race. New York Times statistical savant Nate Silver’s projections came very close to the actual outcome on both popular vote and the electoral college.

Gallup and Fox News favorite Rasmussen Reports — whose surveys consistently predicted a better outcome for Republican Mitt Romney — missed the mark.

Silver’s FiveThirtyEight blog at nytimes.com had made a final prediction of 313 electoral votes for President Obama to 225 electoral votes for Romney. Obama had 303 electoral votes in the bag by early Wednesday morning. If the president maintains his slim lead in Florida, which stood at 47,000 votes Wednesday afternoon, he will finish with 332 electoral votes.

Silver projected a 2.5-percentage-point popular vote edge for Obama. The margin stood at 2 points, with some ballots still to be counted.

Gallup’s national tracking poll, in contrast, had shown Romney with a lead of as much as 5 points. It stopped daily tracking in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, and one day before the election showed the Republican nominee leading by 1 point. Rasmussen’s final tracking poll also showed Romney with a 1-point lead.

Ohio -- Rasmussen: dead heat. Actual: Obama by 2.

Virginia -- Rasmussen: Romney +2. Actual: Obama by 3.

Iowa -- Rasmussen: Romney +1. Actual: Obama by 6.

Wisconsin -- Rasmussen: tie. Actual: Obama by 7.

Colorado -- Rasmussen: Romney +3. Actual: Obama by 5.

Some conservative media outlets used the Rasmussen polling to prop up a narrative in the final days of the campaign that Romney had momentum and a good chance of winning the White House.

Averages of all the big polls tended to show otherwise — giving Obama a razor-thin margin in the popular vote and small but consistent leads in most of the battleground states that would decide the election.

In many of those battlegrounds, Rasmussen’s preelection surveys stood out. Other polls mostly showed Obama with a lead, sometimes larger than the polls’ margins of error.

Rasmussen has drawn scrutiny before because it employs automated surveys that do not reach mobile phones, which more and more Americans use as their primary form of communication.

so didn't i just see some wingnut spouting FOX originated Benghazi lies?
so when do the FOX lies get wiped? since the FOXbots now have no reason to be paranoid NOR obsessed about Obama. I mean, what good is it going to do at this point? better to save up all the lies so then they can take another shot in 2016 of getting no votes from over half the country.
So why do you care about Fox? At all? For what purpose? They can't hurt your president, especially since you feel they are so irrelevant. Just wondering why you care at all, and so VERY, VERY much, to continuously post about them.

Romney Camp Retooling Campaign After Latest Setback
BOSTON—Calling it “a small bump in the road,” sources within Romney headquarters announced plans Wednesday to readjust their campaign strategy following their candidate’s loss of the 2012 presidential election to Barack Obama.
“Obviously the defeat yesterday was tough, but we’re confident we can get right back on track and win this thing in the end,” said Romney campaign manager Matt Rhoades, adding that the GOP candidate “won’t be giving up just because of one bad day.”“The country simply can’t survive another four years of President Obama’s failed policies and broken promises. We just have to regroup, reconfigure a few things, and continue spreading our message to the American people that the man to lead this country forward is Mitt Romney.”
“We’re in this for the long haul,” Rhoades continued.“So we’re not going to let something minor, like not getting enough votes in the electoral college, set us back.”

Republicans Consider Welcoming People Who Believe in Math and Science

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Opting for a bold “big tent” strategy to rebuild the party, Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, told reporters today,“We need to welcome people who believe in different things than we do, like math and science.”

After disappointing results in Tuesday’s election, Mr. Priebus said that it was time for Republicans to become “more tolerant of those with a math-and-science lifestyle.”

“Just because we don’t believe in those things doesn’t mean we can’t get along with people who do,” he said.“We want to send this message: math and science Americans are Americans, too.”

In the biggest departure from its previous electoral strategy, Mr. Priebus said, the Republican Party is “even considering trying to appeal to women.”

“I read recently that women are as much as fifty-one per cent of the population,” he said.“That number sounded crazy high to me, but maybe one of our new math Republicans can check on it for us.”

You're right, I don't get why Obama didn't protect the people that were killed when they repeatedly asked for help, I don't get why Obama didn't send troops to help them while they were being attacked, I don't get why Obama blamed a video for the attacks, I don't get why Obama continues to do nothing, and I don't get why you are defending him.
Ok..Even if as soon as report of attack had come in. If at that moment Obama had called for troops to be sent it was all over and people dead by that time....And we cant have hundred of troops at every plave Americans are at in that region....

As far as the video deal I will agree there...The muslim radicals dont like us dont want us there...A video might upset them more but they are already upset with us being there.

I dont get why your attacking Obama for people being killed in a war torn dangerous region...Did you call for Bush to be impeached or arrested when he let thousands die on USA SOIL?? Bet you did not...WAR IS HELL...It is VERY dangerous region over there...Best bet would to close all military bases all embassies and get the heck out of there....BUT NO GOP OF DEM WILL DO THAT....

Yes they had asked for help....But we have many areas over there calling for more troops..We cnat get enough to them all....Oh and even if we had had lets say 100 more troops there the chance is we would have many more dead then 4....

Not much different than Dick Morris. Just a hell of a lot more accurate.

No - they are waiting for MSNBC's Chris Mathews to say he is happy people died in the storm. Next he will declare Obama dictator.

Iran must be happy Obama won! I guess now we know they will get the nuke. Thanks to idiots like you, we have a more dangerous world where our leaders are allowed to lie to us.

Nice going, brain dead liberal.
