Did you know no U.S. President has ever captured 62% or more of the vote?

The biggest "landslide" was when Lyndon Johnson captured 61.1% of the vote over Barry Goldwater's 38.5%.

In 2008, Obama received 52.9% of the vote. That's barely over half, but was a decisive victory over McCain's 45.7%. One "wild card" is how many people vote for unelectable candidates (such as Ralph Nader, Ross Perot, or Ron Paul) thereby often indirectly helping to elect the candidate they dislike most.

Of course another "wild card" is the electoral college system, which makes relatively small victories appear larger than they were by the popular vote. But many believe the electoral college is a "fairer" way than by simply just counting the popular vote, since the electoral college puts more weighting on states geographically, and less weighting on mega-population centers such as Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York. If not for the electoral college format, presidential candidates could simply ignore most of the country, only need to campaign and appeal to the voters of the largest cities.

But since we DO have the electoral college system,
I'm now predicting a huge landslide victory for Romney.

Why?

Because America is finding out the truth about Obama, turning out many to vote against him, while many that were for him in 2008 will simply not vote at all in 2012. Again, keep in mind Obama only captured 52.9% of the vote in 2008. He's going to get a lot less this time.

Another thing. People are now more excited about Romney in Sept 2012 than they were about McCain in Sept. 2008. There were many independents who just didn't vote rather than vote for McCain. But those feel a little better about Romney, plus they REALLY want to get Obama out. So the independents will vote in higher numbers, democrats will vote in lower numbers, while republicans will vote in about the same numbers. This spells L-A-N-D-S-L-I-D-E for Romney.

I wish I was as optimistic. I believe the Kenyan wins in a squeaker, thanks to OH or FL.

Well, there is at least one more "wild card".
Don't know if this is true, but was just told that the Presidential ballot counting has been outsourced to a foreign company in Spain.

That company is owned by George Soros, the one many single-most credited with getting Obama elected in 2008.

And before someone says "Snopes" says this is false, rumor has it Soros also controls Snopes. We just really don't know what to believe.

I probably wasn't clear enough. Oddsmakers calling for Romney's landslide are going to call for it with no emotion involved; the same as they would for Odingo if they thought he was the winner.

IF (and that's a big IF) Romney wins, it will bring the fiscal flooding to a steady stream at best, nothing more.

The damage is done.

Unless the conservatives get off their butts and vote Obama WILL WIN.

Last election way too many conservatives did not vote, all they've done the last 4 years is complain and now they have another chance to vote again. Will they do it or will they set around and complain another 4 years???

I have said before, if the election resembles 2008, Obama wins. If it has the 2010 turnout it will be a Romney win.

I am confident it won't be another 2008. But I am not sure it will be exactly like 2010. But one indication is the degree to which the media is protecting Obama. They are all in at this point which means they are in panic mode big time. The uglier and more openly biased they get is an indication of where they see the election going.

If four years of Marxist Obama doesn't motivate the voter base to resoundingly kick him out of office, the country is doomed anyway.

The fact that the race is this close to begin with shows that this country is done. We have reached a point where the liberals are, finally through the length of time, reaching the majority. There is nothing you can do about it. These are the times I wish I could jump ahead 40 years and be getting close to 70 years old so I wouldnt have to put up with this country's suicide. Instead, I am close to 30 and will be living through this mess for the next 40 years.

It is going to take either a complete economic collapse which will make the Great Depression look like a holiday, or a truly great leader to emerge. We are closer to the former.

I can promise ya'll this for sure, if Obomber wins again I am giving up on politics completely and will refuse to vote ever again. I will live out the rest of my life enjoying doing the things I love to do; fish, hunt, and being with my family. Our good days will be numbered and I intend on enjoying them completely before the SHTF. Basically I am giving up on the American people.

That is pretty much my feelings also-RR should be ahead by 20%. IF RR doesnt win this country is finished and may be anyway. With DHS, SS, and the National Weather Service(unbelievable) purchasing over a billion rounds of ammo and the US Army training for domestic unrest seems the 'Govmnt' knows it too. PH GOD help us all.

I hope that's true, because the MS Media is in "frantic mode." Their propoganda is reaching shockingly shrill levels. I can only hope this means they are deeply worried about the re-election of the man they worked so hard to get elected. Their tactics and spin have risen to the level of not even caring about the blatant obviousness of their bias.

Media Blames Romney for Their Refusal to Scrutinize Obama’s Decisions

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Talk about the conservative critique–and I think it’s a fair critique, the conservative critique: that all you guys in the media were talking about Mitt Romney, you should have talked about the warnings with the embassy, etc., etc. And yes perhaps we should have. But you know who didn’t allow us to do that?

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Mitt Romney.

SCARBOROUGH: Mitt Romney. If Mitt Romney had kept his mouth shut, if he had not acted like a rank amateur, if he had not embarrassed himself–and by the way internally the campaign understands they screwed up, he’s moved on, they know that. So no conservative can say “oh, the mainstream media, blah, blah.” They know how badly they screwed up, and they were having the fight internally before he even went out and did it. But Romney got in the way of the media looking at the president, going, wha-, wha-, what happened here? How did this happen? Now, those questions are going to be asked in the coming weeks. But they weren’t asked in the first 24 hours because Romney was holding this horrific, irresponsible, press conference.

If only Mitt Romney were to drop out of the election, there is no doubt in my mind that the media would finally do its job of asking why Obama’s disastrous undeclared war and bad security decisions empowered Islamists to run wild across the Middle East and murder Americans. That is if they don’t get distracted by some Republicans somewhere criticizing Obama, which will force them to immediately debut coverage demanding that the Republican be immediately arrested and sent to a Hope Gulag (TM) for rehabilitation.

Mostly this is just embarrassing. We are witnessing the last gasps of anything resembling journalism and its replacement by bellowing hacks who can always be counted on to scream the Party Line at viewers after a long lunch.

The media can’t do its job in Libya for three very simple reasons.

1. It no longer has any idea how to do its job

2. It can’t question Obama

3. It can’t risk a scenario where their questions help Romney become president

Scarborough and Brzezinski have as much as admitted that they will not do their jobs because it might benefit Romney. Would they do their jobs if we went to a One Party State? Nope.

What is astounding is the sheer childishness of what passes for media dialogue now. No one takes responsibility for anything now. Instead Scarborough bellows that he can’t do his job of questioning Obama because Romney somehow got in the way.

I hate to kick you guys while you're down, but let me give you a little history lesson. You remember when your boy, W, was the incumbent and he had his two wars going on in full swing? Yeah, about that...

Never in our entire history as a country has a president been voted out of office when up for re-election while the country was at war. NEVER. Google it.

Speaking of good ol' W, let's go back to the 04' race. You remember that guy Kerry?

He was the cat from New England right? Massachusetts? You know, the one that all of those party loyalists didn't really like, but would vote for him because he wasn't the other guy?

Y'all remember how that worked out when it came to convincing those pesky center fence/independent voters that make up such a huge percentage of the population? Yeah...about that

Kerry was the left's equivalent of Romney. And I have a feeling history is going to repeat itself.

PM me to get in on the betting.

Well, Obama is all about making history.

The difference is that Bush was winning his wars. And it is a fact that since Obama took command more Americans have died in Afghanistan than in Bush's entire 8 years. But Bush allowed them to defend themselves.

As for the independents, reputable polls keep indicating that about 8 out of 10 of them claim they will not vote for Obama.

I'd love to wager with you, but I suspect all I'd win is an IOU. Pretty much the way our country is being run.

As far as the MSM and general public is concerned..... What wars?

Since obummbler has taken office, the MSM has shoved the wars off the radar scope to hide his incompetence and bad policy.

I don't think it is going to play a major role in helping Bingo Odingo keep his job.

Kerry would object to Johnny's statement.

I voted for Romney in the primary in 2008 but the Evangelicals wouldn't vote for him.

I've always backed Romney cause he is very very very smart with business and economics and supports Israel

Grew up in Miami, lots of friends and work-folks of the Hebrew faith. Let the village idiot continue to go down the path he is on. Not all hispanics are idiots. Not all Jewish people are idiots.

I think an Obama defeat along the lines of 60/40 is definitely headed our way.

No, the damage will be done and the recovery can begin when Romney is Elected. I actually am expecting the resident idiot to head for Hawaii and stay there. Forever.

No, Dave. If he loses, the Narcissist-n-Chief will run again in 2016. His ego will demand it.

Lamestream media doesn't seem to think more soldiers dying under Obama is newsworthy. Why? I thought journalists reported the news?

My thoughts exactly.
And shouldn't Cindy Sheehan be in the daily news talking about how Obama's wars?

I tend to agree with DaveB.
Personally, I know several Hispanic and several Jewish people who voted for Obama in 2008. While MOST are saying they "just can't" vote for a Republican, they are also saying they're not going to vote again for Obama. In other words, they are sitting out the election, i.e. taking their votes away from Obama.

But it's also a LOT of democratic voters, period, who voted for Obama in 2008, but will NOT be voting at all in 2012.

Check this out:
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/09/...gholds-mirrors/

Voter registration in the Buckeye State is down by 490,000 people from four years ago. Of that reduction, 44 percent is in Cleveland and surrounding Cuyahoga County, where Democrats outnumber Republicans more than two to one.

"I think what we're seeing is a lot of spin and hype on the part of the Obama campaign to try to make it appear that they're going to cruise to victory in Ohio," Cuyahoga County Republican Chairman Rob Frost said. "It's not just Cuyahoga County. Nearly 350,000 of those voters are the decrease in the rolls in the three largest counties, Cuyahoga, Hamilton and Franklin."

Frost points out that those three counties all contain urban centers, where the largest Democrat vote traditionally has been.

Ohio is not alone. An August study by the left-leaning think tank Third Way showed that the Democratic voter registration decline in eight key swing states outnumbered the Republican decline by a 10-to-one ratio.

So (in 2012) the independents will vote in higher numbers (and mainly for Romney), democrats (for Obama) will vote in lower numbers, while republicans will vote in about the same numbers. This spells L-A-N-D-S-L-I-D-E for Romney.

Each state counts and certifies their own votes.

Remember all that mess in Florida in 2000? The re-count was a waste of time for Al Gore as the state of Florida had already certified the vote and submitted it to the feds.

Perhaps we should add to Stalin's quote,
that suppressing the military vote is another way to control the outcome.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/10/01/military-ballot-requests-down-in-key-battleground-states/

Absentee ballot voting is critical for members of the military, many of them stationed overseas or away from their home state.

SOME how, SOME way . . . . . .
COULD
it be Obama's Czars are suppressing the requests for military absentee ballots?

If I remember correctly, there were also thousands of absentee military votes that were NOT counted because they SOME how, SOME way, "arrived" late to the "official" vote counters (even thought the servicemen who cast their votes did so legitimately and timely).

Some state governments are quite "crooked", too.

If Romney does not hit it out of the park on debate nights it will be a long 4 years.

The rocker "Creed" stating his disappointment in Obama.
"Creed" voted for Obama in 2008, but says he'll be voting for Romney in 2012.

Very interesting perspectives from Creed that may have a "domino" effect among the rocker community?

Anyone else think the debate moderators' bias for Obama is now backfiring on Obama?

I hope that's true, because the MS Media is in "frantic mode." Their propoganda is reaching shockingly shrill levels. . . . . Their tactics and spin have risen to the level of not even caring about the blatant obviousness of their bias.

I think a rising number of former Obama supporters are now for the first time realizing they were DUPED in 2008, and will NOT be voting for Obama this go round. This number is rising daily. That's why the democrats are frantically trying to get their base to vote early (and often) NOW!

Welcome to the site.

You mention a few things in your post;

- This election isn't going to be close. Every indicator that is considered to be reliable points to a big Romney win. The polling data the MSM feeds us is not one of those reliable indicators. Romney will win with over 300 electoral votes. Where it is close is the battle for the U.S. Senate. I believe the D's will lose control, but it is going to be close.

- I hope you are enough of a "Romney supporter" to vote for him! If not, your no vote is worth at least a half vote for Obama. Our main goal at the moment should be to send the Kenyan packing. Then we identify what the next goal should be.

- The buzz about our ballots being counted by groups or organizations outside the country or with direct ties to the Campaigner In Chief just aren't true. Votes are still counted on a local level, usually through the county election commission. Each state then tallies their own election totals as the results come in from those counties.
