I am sooo hoping you're spot on. Email from Karl Rove just came, he's also got Romney at 285. I respect him and Barone as real pros. Talk to you all tomorrow...
I've read about the problem with absentee ballot chaos in Ohio and really hope it isn't close there. A recount would be the opening to fraud that could give the president's men the chance they need.
I've read about the Romney campaign internal polls that show him up by 3 in NH, up by 1 in OH, and even in WI and PA. (Pennsylvania - the OTHER Ohio.)
The link I choose to leave you with though, since it is so different, so "touchy feely" is Our Peggy.
Is it possible this whole thing is playing out before our eyes and we're not really noticing because we're too busy looking at data on paper instead of what's in front of us? Maybe that's the real distortion of the polls this year: They left us discounting the world around us.
Sleep well fellows, for the morrow comes.
AlexC gets 278 without Ohio. Not implausible...
If 285 is your over/under, put me down for a round of beers on Over. And I don't plan on losing this.
Some optimism for you over at Ace: http://minx.cc/?post=334683
I'll buy anybody a drink anywhere if it is over 285!
I'll buy anybody a drink if it is over 269!!
Heh -- then again, at 269, it gets thrown to the House, where we look pretty good. We could end up with Romney-Biden, in which case we'd all be drinking...
Yeah, if it's 269 Biden buys the drinks. If it's less, free drinks for everyone - on the White House!
