The election is tomorrow. But in another sense—the election only begins tomorrow. The way lines look in Florida and Ohio
, people aren’t going to be done voting until sometime on Thursday.
On this day before Election Day, the state of the race looks very good for President Obama
. And that’s because the real “state” of the race is Ohio—and Obama is clearly leading there. Nationally, Obama and Romney may be neck-and-neck, but in the swing states, it’s Mitt Romney’s neck that’s on the line.
Brit Hume is confused
by the fact that national polls are about tied, but swing state polls show Obama with a lead. Britt, that’s because Obama didn’t have the time or money to tell everyone what a liar Mitt is. Hume said “the discrepancy is unmistakable and puzzling.” Maybe that’s because it’s not a discrepancy, Brit.
Republicans are already trying to put the blame
for tomorrow’s loss on Hurricane Sandy. Sandy was destructive, but what was really destructive was that your candidate was on record saying he would privatize FEMA. Oh guys, by the way—if massive hurricanes tend to remind people that Republicans suck at getting things done... you really only have yourselves to blame. Haley Barbour said “The hurricane is what broke Romney’s momentum.” Momentum? Sorry Haley, but when the hurricane hit the beach, the stinking carcass of Mitt Romney’s campaign was already lying on the sand. Besides—the storm itself didn’t help Obama. It was Obama’s reaction to the storm that gave him any lift he got. Hurricanes only help presidents who know how to help hurricane victims. You will note that the head of FEMA is not some guy who used to run the Arabian Horse Association. Karl Rove said that thanks to Sandy, “there was a stutter in the campaign.” Yeah, I think it went like this—“I would get rid of F-F-F-F-EMA.”
Finally, Chris Christie has gone back to Mitt Romney
. Hopefully for the both of them, Chris got his wild oats out, and this will end up making their relationship stronger. Christie told the press “I’m a Republican and I have endorsed Mitt Romney, I support him and I intend to vote for him on Tuesday.” Yes Chris... but do you love him? At least Christie didn’t have one of those news conferences where he made his injured spouse publicly stand beside him in front of all the news cameras. That’s good—I don’t want to see what Mitt Romney looks like in a leopard-print dress.
