The Polling Report [11.2.12]

Filed in National by on November 2, 2012

I think we are looking at our final map here, folks. Obama has come on in Florida, but it is still possible that Romney can win that state. In fact, I think Nate Silver gives the odds to Romney there. Meanwhile, it is also possible that Obama can win in North Carolina, but that is much less likely that Romney winning Florida.

Why am I so confident on Obama winning Florida, you ask? Yesterday, a Democratic operative sent the Tampa Bay Times some data on the early vote in Florida so far “to make the point that President Obama is crushing Mitt Romney when it comes to banking the votes of sporadic and infrequent voters before election day.”

“So far more than 3 million Floridians have cast a ballot by absentee, mail-in ballot or in-person early vote ballot. Democrats lead by more than 60,000 votes, but it’s the unlikely voter numbers that jump out: Of the nearly 414,000 Floridians who did not vote in the last three general elections, Democrats have an advantage of more than 53,000 votes. Of the more than 482,000 Floridians who have only voted in one of the last three general elections, Democrats lead by more than 77,000 — a total of more than 132,000.”

    Mitt’s Etch-A-Sketch is just about out of sand.

  2. Jason330 says:

    Well if Florida goes blue, that slams the car door on Romney’s thumb. (…and by “thumb” I mean penis.)

  3. Jason330 says:

    Okay. Sure. I’m giggling my ass off, and that is the important thing.

  4. Geezer says:

    @Jason: As goes America’s Wang, so goes America.

  5. Rustydils says:

    You might want to hold up a little bit giving Ohio to Obama, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan drew a crowd of 30 thousand tonight at their victory rally in West Chester Ohio

  6. Liberal Elite says:

    Only 30,000?

    That’s going to convince a whole lot of people… NOT!

    And if the Repugs manage to steal Ohio, Obama still has Florida, Virginia, and Colorado…
