The polling in the last couple of days has all gone the President’s direction. Of course, 538 and the Princeton Election Consortium have it decisively in the President’s favor the last several days. Princeton reported this morning (before the site went offline) that the re-election likelihood was 93% for the random distribution, and 98% for the weighted calculation.
I’m trying not to get too excited. I’m trying to keep perspective, but it looks, from reports out of Michigan and Ohio, that the whole “lying about car production” and the fake relief rally have both hurt Romney in the region.
Now it’s time for the final argument. If there’s anyone out there that any of you know that is still undecided, or uncommitted at this point, please, please refrain from choking the ever-living shit out of this person, and make this final argument:
It is time to take responsibility. Our vote is our voice in how we want the country to be run, and what we stand for. It is, in the purest sense, our will writ upon the world stage. We have to take responsibility for the leaders of our country, and we have to vote accordingly. If you are OK with a man who lies and dissembles every time he gets in front of a microphone, you should vote for Rmoney. If you are OK with the idea that a small group should control everything in the country from positions of immunity and leisure while the rest of the country toils from birth to death for what scraps they’ll drop, then you should vote for Rmoney. If you think that the citizens of the greatest and most powerful country in the world should risk being poverty-stricken due to illness, you should vote for Rmoney. If you think that going to war against Iran in order to protect a third country is the proper use of American military personnel–if you think that protecting Israel and Saudi Arabia are worth your children being killed and maimed, then you should vote for Rmoney. And you should do these things with pride. If you think however, that America deserves better in every one of the above cases, then you should vote to re-elect the President.
Some of the aforementioned polling:
NYT/CBS: Obama up 5 points in Ohio, 2 points in Virginia, and 1 point in Florida.
Franklin & Marshall College: Obama up 4 points in Pennsylvania.
