The former Clinton "brain" has made his latest case for a Romney victory HERE and also calls the US Senate for Republicans. He may be on to something. In my opinion the race is very close. Some say we may even see a Romney "popular vote" victory but an Obama "electoral college" victory. If that happens we will see a leftwing switch favoring the maintenance of the "Electoral College", hypocrites as they areon the left (Dianne Feinstein may change her mind). That scenario is one played out just a few times in our nation's history.
Morris is a analyst on FOX and has his own website where he discussed all things political. I never particularly cared for him as a person (toe sucking anyone?) but his political predictions are usually pretty good. He helped Clinton to a re-election in 1996 as Clinton was under great pressure because his libido was out of control as was his ability to tell the truth. Along with the R's putting Bob Dole in the race (I was aghast at the time but trooped on) Clinton swept to victory. Luckily for Morris and Clinton at the time the economy was doing well and America decided to stay the course. The adage of the economy "trumps all" played out.
Now we have a economy not so good. Massive debt, 23 million people looking for work, high gasoline prices, a bogus John Roberts make believe vote for a tax keeping Obamacare in play and a lackluster "Commander-in-Chief" may be causing American voters to change the top dogs. Morris looks at the polls and predicts a wipeout. I am a bit more cautious, well, a lot more cautious (but hoping Morris is right) that the voters will be wise and put the adults back in charge. There is a polling synopsis website called "Unskewed polls" that digs into the "weighting" of party by the pollsters. Romney is up by almost five. Of course the real deal is the electoral college and as the Founders intended, the states, individually, are the battleground.
Morris has a view that the battleground states are now in the upper Midwest and predicts a election day turnout by R's that will sweep Romney/Ryan over Obama. If the American people want to change, that will then happen. If they don't desire a change, we will get four more years of the same lackluster "Chicago style" crap we have seen so far.
In my humble opinion I think Romney will win by maybe 7 points overall. I know, I know, I am a R partisan so I am biased but hey, this is my blog and I can write what I want. Well at least until the PC police come and get me. We are at a crossroads in America in my view. We can become a country where we "expect" the government to take care of us (with the downside of becoming dependent) or we can be what America has been from the beginning. A country of people wishing and working for a better life for themselves and the country through individual endeavor protected protected by the Founding Documents.
I hope Dick Morris is right. America is too valuable to let us all become sheeple.
