Romney Landslide Possible? Plus: Obama Recommends ‘Revenge’; Steyn Recommends Getting Serious
November 4, 2012
The Heritage Foundation’s Michael Franc offers an encouraging word in “Parsing the Polls: If Gallup is right, Tuesday will be a long night for the Democratic party.” (On the main page, National Review Online subtitles it “If Gallup’s right, Obama’s toast.”)
Correcting these polls so that there was a Republican edge in the sample of voters consistent with Gallup’s finding would hand Romney a lead between five to ten points.
Also at National Review Online, Josh Jordan offers another interesting analysis in “Could Today Be Obama’s Best Polling Day Left?”
If Republicans manage turnout at levels that have been suggested by both Gallup and Rasmussen, Romney could be headed for a shocker on Tuesday that no one could have ever seen coming. Except for those paying attention to what’s been going on for the past four years, of course.
Michael Barone in the Washington Examiner goes a step further and positively predicts a Romney landslide. He goes state by state and concludes,
Bottom line: Romney 315, Obama 223. That sounds high for Romney. But he could drop Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and still win the election.

Of course the only poll that really matters is the one this Tuesday. Don’t forget to vote!
In other news, President Obama thinks voters need “revenge”:
Jonah Goldberg comments on Obama’s “revenge” comment.
I understand Obama is bitter. That’s been obvious for a while. But it’s just a weird and narcissistic assumption that his supporters want “revenge” too. Doesn’t mean it’s wrong, though. Which makes the whole thing even creepier.
You could have 83 flood barriers for the cost of one lousy stimulus bill. And yet it never happened — and, if we’re honest with ourselves, in today’s sclerotic America, you can’t even imagine it happening, can you? Let us go to Nanny Bloomberg himself:
But with so many prescient warnings, city authorities are struggling to explain why so little was done. Mayor Bloomberg has said it was difficult to translate such warnings into concrete action.
They can chisel that on the epitaph of the republic. Because with Big Government American-style, no matter how many trillions of dollars are spent, it all goes to makework bureaucracies.
Whether or not to get serious is the choice facing the electorate on Tuesday.
