Your blog got lucky.
Polls simply cannot predict the final outcome - as was proven in 1980 with a Reagan landslide.
you're wrong for multiple reasons carol...do some research and figure it out...there was no luck involved

The Obama machine had a massive and methodical method of getting people out to vote - probably a lot of whom would not have voted otherwise - and it's my guess many of whom were paid.
There's no way that can be predicted in polls.
You're especially disgusting on this fine fall day, dumb carol, but then you've been declining exponentially for weeks now. I was involved in the ground games of both of Obama's presidential campaigns although I had more time to share in 2008, and allow me to assure you that we don't PAY for votes--we leave that to you Florida Crackers with the half pints of Kessler's rolling around in the floorboards.

I'd advise that you might want to refrain from making your Graceless Old Prune guesses in certain circles--having a double caramel mocha latte thrown in your face might spell the end for an old bad-lifestyle-choice diabetic like you.

Obama's neverending fundraising topped Romney's.
No thoughts about that? Guess all the money poured into the lying, negative and small campaign ads on his side paid off. Correct?
hmmmmmmm...

Mitt Romney and his GOP allies have topped President Barack Obama’s fundraising for the third straight month, allowing his campaign to stock up its cash reserves as it prepares to enter the homestretch.

A national exit poll said 42% of voters were swayed by Obama's reaction to Hurricane Sandy.
Wonder if there'd be that many now?
wrong again carol:

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 70% made up their minds about how to vote more than a month ago, while another 18% decided within the last month.

God decided she needed a little death and destruction under her binders.

The GOP said it was OK because The East Coast has "magic hurricane hormones" that negate hurricanes. Rep Akin and Mourdock confirmed it must be a legitimate hurricane however.

I trust you've done your part to help the Sandy victims by a donation since big government is nowhere to be found.
wrong again carol:

New Jersey's Chris Christie -- a Republican whose state bore the brunt of the storm -- told CBS News on Tuesday that "cooperation has been great with FEMA here on the ground," while Delaware's Jack Markell -- a Democrat -- told CNN that people in his state have been "really, really impressed by the response of FEMA."

carol...you keep denying at this pace and soon you won't have a head to bang against the wall anymore

STAY AWAY FROM FOX AND BREITBART!!! the right wing insular bubble has burst...look around before you blow another one to hide in

Yes, the young do outnumber the old, and yes, the future belongs to the young. Yes, there are those with vested interests on both lanes of the political racetrack. Yes, the interests of the many eclipsed the interests of the few in this election. Hence, the Obama victory.

Thanks to Obama's energy leadership:
LONDON (Reuters)- The United States will overtake Saudi Arabia and Russia as the world's top oil producer by 2017, the West's energy agency said on Monday, predicting Washington will come very close to achieving a previously unthinkable energy self-sufficiency.

That's a lot of luck.....

Personally, I'd much rather have a lucky President, than an 'unlucky' one.

Wonder if Romney's luck would have held out against a Democrat-heavy senate?

I just hope we can resist the temptation to say we told ya' so a half million times or more after Obamacare does its Hurricane Sandy impression.
There's no hope for you--you won't even admit you LOST this one more than we won it.“Four presidents in the last century have won 50 percent of the vote twice: Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Reagan, and Obama,” the conservative pundit explained.“It pains me to say that, to put him in with those other three, but it’s a fact. Democrats picked up seats in the House and the Senate. The president is in good shape.… I think there will be a big budget deal. It will be an Obama budget deal much more than a Paul Ryan-type budget deal. Elections have consequences.”

Sucker's bet. He's in a freezer somewhere, and the prop-masters / designers of 'The Walking Dead' have already crafted his mannequin for use in necessary public appearances.

Wonder which brand of ham they decided on?
