Singer-songwriter Bob Dylan predicted that Obama would win in a “landslide.” Meanwhile, political polling experts including Frank Luntz predicted a close race in which Romney would narrowly win. Political expert Peggy Noonan’s analysis led her to believe that Obama was “fighting for his political life.” Former Clinton advisor and political commentator Dick Morris predicted a major Romney win.
I guess we should ask singer-songwriters for future election predictions. But then again, maybe a lightweight like Bob Dylan is only useful when he’s predicting Democratic wins against a backdrop of voter fraud and illegal electioneering.
Updated: Early voting for the Democrats was down. Election Day voting has always favored the GOP. Yet *somehow*, Mitt Romney received less votes than John McCain did in 2008 and less votes than John Kerry did in 2004. In the midst of 23 million unemployed, more than $16 trillion debt, 47 million Americans on Food Stamps, and other obvious economic woes felt by Americans across-the-board which can’t be covered up by the mainstream liberal media… we’re supposed to believe that Romney received less votes than McCain and less votes than Kerry? When the Tea Party is fired up, Republicans are impassioned, and conservative Americans increased their campaign efforts in battleground states to an unprecedented level (knocking on 19 times more doors in Ohio than McCain campaigners did 4 years ago)? SOMETHING DOESN’T ADD UP. The election results don’t match the historically accurate Rasmussen or Gallup polling data. Enthusiasm for Obama is way down, and Republicans rallied around Romney after highly-successful presidential debates. Maybe it’s news stories like this that lead to understanding: In 13 Philadelphia precincts, Obama received 99% of the vote– yet, voter turnout in Philadelphia was only 60%.
