PERHAPS a NEW JERSEY SURPRISE? I call for it! MAYBE CONNECTICUT, TOO!

This photo of the word “ROMNEY” written on a New Jersey beach submitted by Twitchy gave me the hook to talk about something I think could happen Tuesday, and it would be a shocker:  New Jersey goes for Mitt Romney!  Maybe Connecticut, too.  And it’s all Sandy’s fault (That’s Sandy the Super Storm not Sandy […]

With 4 Weeks to Go, Pollsters Move to More Honest Models and Romney Takes the RCP Lead – Maybe!

Up until today, most of the polls have been illusions. Rasmussen may be the single exception to the rule. Watching the Rasmussen internal numbers, there has been a great deal of consistency in the polling demographics, which makes for an easy time telling if there has been movement to Mitt Romney or towards Barack Obama. Rasmussen has […]

Real Clear Politics Seems to be Manipulating Poll Averages to Obama’s Advantage

I have been watching the polls with a keen interest of late. As I look into the Cross Tabs and Demographics of the numerous polls that seem to favor Obama, what I find is that the polls sample Democrats at a much higher rate than is reasonably believable. Real Clear Politics is supposed to be […]

JOHN STOSSEL IS RIGHT ABOUT SOCIAL SECURITY

John Stossel is a wonderful and prominent libertarian voice today.  His article on Social Security at Real Clear Politics is right on point. Social Security is popular but unsustainable.
