    Big night for MSNBC!

  • AppleStinx

  • Sicilian Papa

    The market didn’t like that 7.9 number -140.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Romney needs to run with that 7.9% number. That is what people will be thinking about on Tuesday!

  • Ratboy

    Rachel is on fire, Matthews is on Fire, Hannity sucks cuz he only got 3.6 million, OReilly is just about done since he only got a little over 800k in the key demo, and greta really tanked with 3 million.

    And oh yea, The Five should hang it up because they didnt come close to 3 million at 5 in the afternoon and only had 2.5 million

  • Coffee Steve

    @S. Papa
    The market didn’t like that 7.9 number -140.

    *Beck Delivers Blistering Message to NYC Mayor As City Prepares for Marathon Amid Disaster: ‘Shove It Up Your A**’

    I agree with you Glenn. He is pathetic

  • MomSays

    Keeping the faith in Michigan. Just reviewed county results from 2008 and I’m wondering to what degree they are used in crunching poll numbers??

    In 2008 Obama had a clear win in two large counties in particular that I would bet a 100 Grand (candy bar from my kids trick or treat bag) that he will lose by very large margins this time around…Oakland (373K-O to 277K-McC) and Kent (150k-o to 148-McC)…Obama will be crushed in these counties this time. My own county, Macomb is a tougher call (224K-O to 188K-McC) and typically leans more Dem. But enthusiam was very, VERY high for O in 2008 and almost non existent now. Wayne county (Detroit plus surrounding) will go O, but economy is so bad, enthusiam has got to be way down there too…

    Coffee-I like your prediction, but I add 16 for Romney!

  • Coffee Steve

    By the way

    Our open enrollment period has started

    Premiums up 110% More than doubled

    Dental Up 1%

    Vision up 5%

    anyone else have theirs go up?

    Bloomberg Diverts Food, Generators from Devastated Staten Island to NYC Marathon

    Fresh off his “climate disruption”-driven endorsement of President Obama, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has chosen to divert critical food supplies and power generators from desperate residents of Staten Island to Sunday’s New York City Marathon. Gothamist reports:

    [T]hose urging the city to halt the run believe that the thousands of Marathon volunteers could direct their efforts towards post-Sandy relief and cleanup, “and they also argue that the event will divert thousands of police from important hurricane-related duties.” But despite petitions circulating, work started up again yesterday on the Marathon route.

    A tipster, who wishes to remain anonymous, told us there were lots of workers in and out of the park today, who had “started before the storm and then came back starting yesterday.” Trailers are lined up from around 71st to 66th Streets on Central Park West, a food truck was set up today, and “generators have been sitting there at least a week.” The tents that were taken down prior to the storm have also been set back up, and there is a stage set up near 73rd Street.

    Considering all the volunteer help and NYPD attention that’s already being diverted to the Marathon, the added sight of generators and food being channeled to the event is probably going to strike some New Yorkers as a little misplaced—we’re thinking of the ones who are currently lined up waiting for the National Guard to ration out MREs and bottles of water.

    Coffee-I like your prediction, but I add 16 for Romney!

    That’s possible if he in fact carries NH and Iowa, although checking the papers in Iowa Romney’s overall lead is down to 1 now. But the Sandy Bump for Obama will be very short lived.


    MARATHON has been Canceled

  • Coffee Steve


    LOL..lets hope so

  • Sicilian Papa



    There are still a few minutes to go in forth quarter. You are up by a field goal and you are claiming victory. The Patriots were leading with a few minutes left in the Super Bowl twice and the Giants won both times.

    Sandy is not going to look so good to people in a few days. There are signs reading “Where is Fema.” Also people will have that 7.9% number to think about when they walk in the booth.

    The big advantage you have is the corrupt partisan media they will spin and omit anything that hurts the President.

  • 1966

    chris wallace said this morning both sides have lawyered up because if the race is close in any states theregoing to contest the results,and have a recount. he said it might be weeks before we know the winner.

  • Dirty_D

    Sam… Using Liberal polling in this election is useless. They favor dems by +8-11 on sampling. If you really believe the turnout is going to be that high in favor of Obama is ignorant. 2008 was a rare year just as 1980 was a rare year in terms of the presidential election. Convince yourself what you want but don’t get your hopes that high. Rasmussen had Romney up by 3 yesterday (the most accurate pollster of 2008) but you post a poll by the democrat leaning PPP for Colorado. Are you lying to yourself or what? Btw I’ll post the lastest Rasmussen results for each swing state (Rasmussen uses a +3 Democrat advantage BTW only in case Obama has that many Dems turnout which is highly unlikely):

    Colorado: Romney +3
    Ohio: Tie
    Virginia: Romney +2
    Wisconsin: Tie
    New Hampshire: Romney +2
    Iowa: Romney +1
    Florida: Romney +2
    Nevada: Obama +2
    North Carolina: Romney +6
    Pennsylvania: Obama +5
    Michigan: Obama +5
