I still don't feel comfortable with ANY of the Obama wins or Romney wins scenarios or theories out there. Some are obviously wistling in the dark or attempts to spook the other side, others are plausible. The problem is that polls involve uncertainties that are at least as great and in most cases larger than the trending differences between the candidates, and the fact that history imvolves multiple, contradictory "lessons" that may apply to this race. None of us can say with confidence which will be founf, after the fact, to have applied.

This election is a close thing however one counts it. I sincerly hope Romney wins and adds at least some serious long range thinking about our economic productivity and national debt. However, can't yet confidently predict it.

While Romney has changed his tune about the role of the federal government, fox news laments the role of the federal government in disasters.

Quote:
WASHINGTON — There's nothing like a natural disaster to test the depth of politicians' preference for small government.

And so it turns out that after Superstorm Sandy battered the East Coast, Mitt Romney is far more supportive of the government agency in charge of coordinating disaster relief. Only last year, as Romney hewed to the right while battling for the GOP nomination, he seemed to downplay the federal government's role in disaster response.

"Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction," Romney said at a debate last June. "And if you can go even further, and send it back to the private sector, that's even better."

Asked by moderator John King of CNN whether that would include disaster relief, Romney said: "We cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids. It is simply immoral, in my view, for us to continue to rack up larger and larger debts and pass them on to our kids."

Now, a week before Election Day, after of a massive disaster, Romney's campaign is reassuring voters that his administration wouldn't leave disaster victims in the lurch. The public's attention is locked on the devastation caused by Sandy at a time when Romney and President Barack Obama are locked in a close presidential campaign. With Obama heavily involved in getting federal funds to those in trouble, the Romney campaign moved quickly to reassure the public it supports a strong program of storm relief.

"I believe that FEMA plays a key role in working with states and localities to prepare for and respond to natural disasters," Romney said in a statement supplied by his campaign Wednesday. "As president, I will ensure FEMA has the funding it needs to fulfill its mission, while directing maximum resources to the first responders who work tirelessly to help those in need, because states and localities are in the best position to get aid to the individuals and communities affected by natural disasters."

If I was a supporter of Romney I would have to wonder which way he would go once having gotten to the WH. I mean he is all over the place and his current policy plans, such as they are, can not meet all the many sides of his promises. Or do they know he is bull crapping with the "more moderate mitt" of these last few weeks just to get elected?

@H2O MAN,

Wisconsin and Iowa are tied.

I just find that funny.

Polls show Obama edge in Iowa, New Hampshire and Wisconsin
http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2012/11/01/polls-show-obama-edge-in-iowa-new-hampshire-and-wisconsin/
One poll shows Obama with an 8 point lead in Wisconsin.
Obama has a 6 point lead in Iowa.

You consistently quote only Rasmussen Spurt. A polling service so accurate that they showed McCain tied with Obama in Ohio in 2008 and Wisconsin with Obama leading by only 7 points. Rasmussen was off by 5 points in Ohio and 7 points in Wisconsin. But you just keep hoping that they are closer this year Spurt. Hope is all you get this year. You certainly won't get change in the accuracy of Rasmussen polls or in who you get to call President.

Gallup stopped polling during the storm and it's aftermath. Without the ability to contact many in the NorthEast it will certainly put a question mark on any national polls. It's really the state polls that will matter in the next few days if they mean anything at all.

@H2O MAN,
I love stuff that comes from a site called cdn2-b

some folks really really don't get that government healthcare isn't an option in Canada - it's been a requirement for decades. Same-sex marriage is legal throughout Canada. Abortions are legal throughout Canada. The Conservative prime minister has said these are not going under discussion for change by his party.

I see this on FB all the time. "If Obama gets in I'm moving to Canada." Dude, Canada is everything you think you hate about Democrats and democracy.
