Every election year, political leaders know the results in September. They know the media will use all kinds of silly polls to keep people watching to sell ads but they also know the election has been decided by the Electorates in the Electoral College and if it is a five point spread or less either way, they know to work real hard for that slim chance to change results but they also know it takes 270 to get elected and 300+ for a landslide so they turn to one poll and when it shows one with well over 300 electoral votes, they know it is over.

In this case, Obama has won with a landslide and will continue to be President until January of 2017 but what about now until Election Day? Obama has to stay out there on the road to keep his supporters happy since many sent in money and many have done a lot of work to get him elected and for Romney, he has an even more difficult job because he knows he has lost but he cannot just come out and say so. He's furious being a three time loser, in a depression, throwing fits but he has to keep smiling and acting as if he can or will win because being the loser, there will be many disappointed people Election night who put in long hours and spent a lot of money. He must keep them happy and upbeat and not let them in on the reality of it all just yet.

This election will end early Election Night because even before the polls have closed in TX, let alone Cali, Romney will have already called Obama admitting defeat. Later, Obama will come on stage and say he got a phone call from Romney and they he will go on the say what a close fight it was, blah blah blah when it never was a fight to start with. The right wing fanatics will go on with their propaganda of birth certificates and other nonsense while the President informs the do nothing Congress, Americans have spoken, I don't worry about polls anymore but you do so get your arses to work NOW.

Here is that one poll that counts:
