Tight as a tick in Ohio, 49-49.
Richard Mourdock trails by 3, but the 6 percent who’re voting Libertarian will probably come back home on election day. And so will many of the 6 percent who’re undecided.
Say it with me. Ohio is a Red state.
Here’s how I see it right now.
Should be Red: Colorado, Virginia, NC, Florida
On the line: New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Iowa, Ohio, Nevada
Should be Blue: Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Michigan
Given that the Indy’s are/should be breaking for Romney (big!), there should be enough pickups in the “on the line” column to seal it for Romney.
I’ll be surprised if Mourdock eeks this one out…sometimes people forget they’re in the political spectrum.

I would submit most of them are more likely to stay home than then they are to vote for Romney, or Obama for that matter.
If they vote, then Mourdock is far more appealing to Libertarians. His opponent is big statist guy.
Tyrone Woods was calling for help. Someone ordered that help to “stand down.”
And the press could not care less why.
Barack Obama was twice asked very directly: “Were they denied requests for help during the attack?”
And twice Obama did not answer.
If there was a simple answer, we would have heard it.
I believe that if there was an innocent answer, we would have heard it.
And I believe the longer Obama ducks this issue, the worse the truth is.
You’re right, except he will get away with it if he is relected, unless you can impeach
a POTUS in a second term for behavior in a previous term.
As I see it Obama has no cards to play and it is in his best interest to remain silent and run out the Nov 6th clock and possibly win.
I see that we’re ignoring a DePauw poll that shows Mourdock down by about a million (more like 10, actually); I don’t know the internals.
Ras hopefully has a better handle on this than the other poll, otherwise you can stick a fork in Mourdock. Pence will win easily, Romney will win easily (in Indiana) but Mourdock will probably only get close enough to get screwed by the Liberaltarian candidate and Donnelly will go to the Senate with about 49% of the vote. Where he will jump whenever Harry Reid pulls his puppet string, then he’ll come back to Indiana in 6 years and campaign like he’s Rush Limbaugh’s long-lost twin brother.
I would like to see the internal of the Howey poll also. He poses himself as an objective analyst, but if you read his opinions in the IndyStar they lean left at a min. I don’t recall the last time he had anything positive or even objective to say about anyone mid-right, and certainly not about anyone with tea-party backing. He also used to do a spot on a local news-talk AM show and always provided similar ‘analysis’.
Maybe his internals are solid, but the Mourdock internall polling has him up by 2, and now Rasmussen has him down by 3 w/in MOE…sort of shows you where Howey is IMO.
haha well looks like others are onto Howey as I stated…saw these two links just after i posted the message above. the real critical piece is the tweet by *Howey’s own pollster*…at the end of the second article.
Mourdock has probably lost. the abortion trap was laid open, and he jumped in it headfirst twice.
Just say you are pro-life, and move on.
Mourdock is the biggest waste of money I have ever spent on an out of state candidate, even if he wins.
That was the STUPIDEST , most BRAINDEAD shit of af an answer to a frankly POINTLESS issue question I have ever heard.
At least Akin had a couple months to play down his obvious brain fart, Mourdock was plain straight up biblical on an issue HE WOULD HAVE NO SAY ON WHATSOEVER.
Dumbass. I should ask for my money back, but I won’t. My screw up.
ABC has Romney up again!
They’re just toyin’ with ya, D-OC 🙂
Coming back to the House races…
According to I/Pundit, WaPo is saying the Repubs may _add_, that’s right, ADD to the totals won in the 2010 midterm. That implies an electorate-model more like ’10 than 2008.
HotAir says “…a lot of pollsters will have egg on their faces on Wednesday.”
Obama said today in Ohio that voters can get their revenge on Tuesday. Not sure we have ever had a president like that. It may be too late,but I would like to see an ad showing Obama saying that.
It speaks volumes. Get it in an ad, a rushed radio ad if need be.
