<quoted text>Yeah, honestly Florida was the one swing state other than NC I thought might go to Romney. I thought he sufficently scared enough of the elder voters, Homer did not factor in the larger Hispanic and youth vote there. Everything else pretty much went as expected.
The numbers say that plenty of old folks also went for Da Bammy concluding that the devil you know is better than the devil you don't know. Many retired people were very turned off by the Mitt's 47% remark and many just tired of the teaparty bullshyte.

This is a sunshine law state, it will be interested to learn how Thee Villages voted compared to 2008__we'll find out this week perhaps.

Actually, we predicted correctly. The easily fooled were just duped...again.
Wait another two years. You'll see.
You're such a sad liar.

You were Romney all the way, believing the FAUX propaganda.

Even FAUX is wondering how they could have been so wrong.

Quit lying. You were all in for Romney, even quoting FAUX polls from Rasmussen.

You're a sucker.

Get over it. You were dead wrong. Nothing has changed. You've always been dead wrong. The TP was totally repudiated, with West, Walsh, Akin, and Mourdoch rejected in their respective states.

And all you can say is 'wait till next time'.

Go eat some pie, fattie.

You are clueless about Flight 93.
Where is the wreckage? It was never found. Crashed airliners leave massive debris fields. 93 left a scar in the earth and no engines or anything else were ever recovered. Same with the Pentagon.
You really naive enough to believe the Gov't views?? Why'd Bush try to stonewall the 9-11 investigation for months and months??
Why have so many of early witnesses mysteriously died??
You have to go back to the day of the attacks. Every network reported hearing 'explosions' immediately prior to the collapse of the towers.
Witnesses heard explosions before WTC 7 fell, days later.
You're very gullible.
It's very easy to accept the Gov't version of events.
To think otherwise challenges all we've been taught. Most people are sheeple and would rather not think about it.
One of us is for sure.

The election is over and sad as it may be to many posters Obama won. If you really have concerns for our nation and its morals and econmic problems stop complaining and pray to God to strengthen our nation and its leadership. God bless.

Waiting for Gallup to apologize first, then see what polls show.
What a crock those two polls are.
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.

Yes, they adjusted their numbers immediately before the election because they caught on. They woke up, as most of America had already done, and knew they were way off. Gallup did exactly the same thing. They fooled the Republicans and Romney's campaign throughout the election process.
You can thank us for providing you with credible sources in polling, or you can continue to believe your conservative rhetoric. Those on this board who regularly provided information from the fivethirtyeight blog from NYTimes were slammed. Gosh, we ARE right....again.
Your blog got lucky.

Polls simply cannot predict the final outcome - as was proven in 1980 with a Reagan landslide.

Evidently, there weren't many that could be paid enough money to vote for Romney. Is that what you are saying?

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?

Findings: A large number of Americans oppose Obamacare, but it's not clear how many. One poll finds the number to be 47 percent; another says 62 percent of Americans think it's unconstitutional for the federal government to make you buy health insurance.
Pollster: New York Times/ CBS News; Reason/ Rupe
Methodology: Survey of 986 adults from March 21 to March 25; survey of 1,200 adults from March 10 to March 20.

No sense in aguing with irrational people. I care far more about my country and our future than I do about what kind of free stuff I might get, which is why I voted for Romney. Too many people wanting free stuff blindly vote the democratic ticket. I feel bad for the next couple of generations that will inherit the Obama mess.

<quoted text>The question moving forward becomes will we survive as America after another four years of Barack Obama. Most of the people I know fear we have already become a dependency society, and four more years of Obama will only bring more.
Wait until the EPA starts rolling out more rules. Wait until the 157 commissions and panels in ObamaCare tell us what to do about our healthcare. How many people will be getting food stamps four years from now?
From H. W. Prentis : Observation about democracies planting the seeds of their own demise):
"The historical cycle seems to be: From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to apathy; from apathy to dependency; and from dependency back to bondage once more."
I say bring it on. It's darkest just before the dawn. We have to completely be in the dark first apparently.

He got lucky. Just like when federal agents finally found bin Laden after five years of looking for him.

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?
