Not gonna happen. Romney will be replaced by a REAL conservative after we purge the Republicans of this notion that they can piecemeal feed the Constitution to us in order to keep us TEA party'ers in line. Just wait. Congress will see a surge of real conservative values and Romney will either get in step or be encouraged to STEP OFF. the TEA party is no where near finished with FIXING this mess. Romney is just a neccessary means to an end. Obummer is EXACTLY what we will use as the REASON we have a TEA PARTY. He is the exact opposite. Wait until he has to live off those CREDIT CARDS himself once he get the boot in a week.

Why Romney Will Win

Our two-year quest to elect a president will (mercifully) conclude next Tuesday. No more campaign stops in Ohio, no more 30-second attack ads, no more fundraising letters — well, those letters are likely to keep coming. But a cold, hard reading of the most important trends and numbers tells us that Mitt Romney will be elected America’s 45th president. Here are the reasons why.

The composition of the electorate favors the GOP: Polls by both Gallup and Rasmussen predict a partisan electorate modeled more closely after 2004 than 2008. In 2004, the GOP’s edge among self-identified Republicans and the larger category of “lean Republican” carried George W. Bush to a narrow win. In 2008, Democrats held a large partisan edge (Gallup plus-12, Rasmussen plus-7), and then-Sen. Barack Obama coasted to victory. While it was not uncommon for surveys earlier this year to find Democrats’ partisan edge approaching double digits, both pollsters now see an electorate evenly divided between the parties with a slight edge to the GOP due primarily to heightened Republican voter intensity. Other surveys still show an edge to Democrats, but the margins are down to 3 or 4 percentage points.

In addition, surveys by the Tarrance Group find Romney with a double-digit lead among independents , a group vitally concerned about the economy and job creation, precisely the Romney closing message in the campaign. For that reason, Tarrance partner Ed Goeas feels that this Republican advantage could actually grow as Election Day approaches, resulting in a potentially larger GOP victory than is now being forecast.

Foxnews doesn't know shit. POPULAR DOESN'T F*CKING MATTER! We found that out the hard way in 2000 when the Republican retard George W. Bush wrecked the country.

Now, THE HAMMER, show me a plausible Electoral College scenario that puts Romney in the White House. There isn't f*cking one! Obama has 290 already.

Sorry Wally that I struck a cord with you. I myself (unlike You) have chosen not to make myself an elected public official. I am sorry if you are afraid that the skeletons in your closet would be revealed. All I did was voice my opinion and your hateful rhetoric is not going to change that, so take a chill pill.

The Three Most Likely Scenarios for a Romney 2012 Victory

Scenario 1: Win The Big 3, Repeat Bush Victories
The most likely path for a Romney victory is to repeat the path George W. bush took on the way to victory. If Romney is able to win Virginia (13), Florida (29), and Ohio (18), Romney would sit at a solid 266 votes, and would need to just win one more state out of the remaining 8 swing states. Romney should have natural advantages in Florida and Virginia, where both states have Republican tilts (and in Florida’s case, outright dominance) and both states went big Tea Party in 2009 and 2010. Ohio will be the tougher one to win, and both candidates know it. Both campaigns will likely spend more time here than anywhere else. If Romney wins all three, Obama would be forced to win New Hampshire, Iowa, Colorado, Wisconsin, Nevada, Pennsylvania, New Mexico, and Michigan.

Scenario 2: Replace Ohio with Wisconsin and Colorado
The scene gets a little trickier for Romney if he loses either Ohio or Virginia.(Get’s really tricky if he loses Florida, but again he should have the slight edge there. If he loses Florida, it probably means he didn’t win Ohio, either, and so the whole elections is over). If Romney loses either Virginia or Ohio, he has to make it up by taking a combination of other states. He could replace either with a win in Michigan or Pennsylvania (but if he loses Ohio, wins in either seem less likely), or the most probable combo of Colorado and Wisconsin. So, if Romney were to lose Ohio, his most likely path to victory is by winning Colorado, Wisconsin, Florida, and Virginia. One more state – most likely Iowa – would be needed to lift Romney over the top. This scenario seemed unrealistic not long ago, but polls have shown Romney and running-mate Paul Ryan strong in the Colorado-Wisconsin-Iowa trifecta. This scenario would give them at least 273 EVs.

Scenario 3: A Wave Election
When we look at states, they are ranked in order of likelihood of winning. For instance, if Romney loses Ohio, it means he will probably lose similar, but slightly more Democratic, states like Michigan and Pennsylvania. But if Romney wins Ohio, it means the chances that he will have also won those states increases (similar to how Obama won in 2008 as he started winning marginal GOP states). It’s indeed possible Romney wins the Big 3 (OH, VA, FL) plus the “backup plan” of Colorado, Wisconsin, and Iowa. Then, other states such as New Hampshire (4) and Michigan (16) and Nevada (6) could fall his way. This would put Romney well over 300 EVs and he would cruise to a victory. Is this the likely scenario? Maybe not likely, but given where voter enthusiasm is leaning, it is possible.

Just be ready to say GOODBY to obama ...

The latest White House 2012 analysis of polls, conditions, and circumstances in individual states projects a slightly smaller Electoral College vote total for Governor Mitt Romney than he had last week, but Romney still remains above the magic number of 270, that he needs to win in the Electoral College.

This week, WH12 has seen the battleground states of Iowa and Nevada taken out of Romney’s column and designated as toss-up states. This switch has taken away 12 electoral votes from the Romney-Ryan ticket and brought them from last week’s total of 291 electoral votes , to 279 electoral votes this week. But as Mitt Romney sees 12 votes go from him to the undecided column, President Obama sees his previous Electoral College projection decrease by 10 votes as WH12 now takes Wisconsin out of the President’s column and classifies it as a toss-up state. So President Obama now finds his Electoral College vote drop from 247 last week, to 237 this week.

From Gallup:
Romney Leads Among Early Voters, Similar to His Likely Voter Lead

Thus far, early voters do not seem to be swaying the election toward either candidate.

Romney currently leads Obama 52% to 45% among voters who say they have already cast their ballots. However, that is comparable to Romney's 51% to 46% lead among all likely voters in Gallup's Oct. 22-28 tracking polling. At the same time, the race is tied at 49% among those who have not yet voted but still intend to vote early, suggesting these voters could cause the race to tighten. However, Romney leads 51% to 45% among the much larger group of voters who plan to vote on Election Day, Nov. 6.

Scratch the ear plugs Wally, not going to be needed. Under the terms of the bet you laid out, we did not have to share the meal together. I respectfully choose not to share the meal. So in my view, whomever wins will have a very peaceful meal. Also, in my view, a peaceful night out does not include political discussion. I am sure you can see the wisdom in this. You and your Lady dine where you wish and let me know what the cost is and I will cover it, if I lose. The same applies if I win.

I imagine it will be Tavern on the Plaza when ever it is settled who won. I don't know how the power outages are going to play out with the voting next week so when ever it is finally settled who won we can proceed as you have outlined. I sure did not think of calling ahead reservations so thanks for the idea. HAGD

Opinion: Here comes the landslide
By Dick Morris - 10/30/12 06:33 PM ET

Voters have figured out that President Obama has no message, no agenda and not even much of an explanation for what he has done over the past four years. His campaign is based entirely on persuading people that Mitt Romney is a uniquely bad man, entirely dedicated to the rich, ignorant of the problems of the average person. As long as he could run his negative ads, the campaign at least kept voters away from the Romney bandwagon. But once we all met Mitt Romney for three 90-minute debates, we got to know him — and to like him. He was not the monster Obama depicted, but a reasonable person for whom we could vote.

As we stripped away Obama’s yearlong campaign of vilification, all the president offered us was more servings of negative ads — ads we had already dismissed as not credible. He kept doing the same thing even as it stopped working.

The result was that the presidential race reached a tipping point. Reasonable voters saw that the voice of hope and optimism and positivism was Romney while the president was only a nitpicking, quarrelsome, negative figure. The contrast does not work in Obama’s favor.

His erosion began shortly after the conventions when Indiana (10 votes) and North Carolina (15) moved to Romney (in addition to the 179 votes that states that McCain carried cast this year).

Good choice, their T-Bone is excellent. I am courious as to how they plan on dealing with the power outages because NY State and New Jersey have very large electoral votes. It will be interesting to say the least. HAGD

My thoughts exactly unless they go to paper ballots like Kansas. No power, no electronic voting. Also simplifies any recounts. Problem solved. One more reason for voting early and often. lol After the election I will tell you how many times I voted. The Kobach laws don't work.
I personally prefer the surf and turf. Hard to beat shrimp and steak with a good Pendleton and RC mixed drink chaser.

What I'd like to see...

*Obama re-elected. This is a given.

*Dems maintain Senate control. No problem here.

*Dems pick up 25 House seats but mostly likely only 7 to 10 seats. GOP keeps 218+ House majority sadly.

Michelle Bachmann destroyed. I'd love to see this crazy biitch ousted by Jim Graves. This would really make my night.

Claire McCaskill defeating Todd Akin in MO.

Elizabeth Warren defeating Scott Brown in MA.

As many Tea Party candidates destroyed as possible.
