    FOX in a blowout! Good to see you back Ralph!

  • don

    i cant wait to see tuesdays numbers. will cnn beat msnbc and will fox get 10million or more

  • Ralph Hahn

    Thanks, Papa. I was working all week but for the first three days, there was no heat, lights, and everything else that goes with losing power. My power was restored Wedneday evening. I live in a fairly new area, part of a downtown revitalization district. The wiring must be better here. But, anyway, God bless the American Red Cross and the Southern Baptist Association from Georgia for sending volunteers to help feed the needy. They have a huge set-up in our back training area and they’re shipping the hot meals out as soon as they’re cooked.

    We don’t need government to tell us to pay more taxes so IT can distribute the wealth. Here in the U.S., you ask for help in a dire situation, we volunteer our time and supplies, no matter where that dire situation is.

  • Sicilian Papa

    FOX is king!

    OUCH! That’s gotta hurt!!!!!!

  • Ratboy

    Rachel is on Fire, Hannity sucks he was short of 3.4 million, OReilly is on his last leg cuz he could not get 4 million, Sharpton almost smoked Brett in the key he only missed by 300k, And matthews got almost half of what Shep did so he wins the night!!!

  • Ratboy

    Hey Dare Ralphie Boy!!!!!!! I am glad you are safe and sound and warm and cuddly!!!

    I hope some of my Red Cross came to your aid too cuz that would make me very happy!!!!!!!!

  • Matthew

    Responding to the PRIOR days

    @Letmethink: My dog is recovering nicely. She can walk and run, she’s just a little awkward in her gait.

    @USN: I vote by mail in Florida, I filled out and turned in my ballot before early voting even started. I just notice the early voting lines in Pinellas because I have to drive by them every day.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Take MSNBC & CNBC’s Friday 9pm 25-54 numbers combined, triple it, and they still didn’t beat O’Reilly at 8PM. Bill O beat a big-name charity concert by music superstars big time! At 9PM, Sean Hannity blew away the competition in the second hour of the concert. There’s no stoppin’ FNC!

  • Go Fox

    Hopefully, I will be watching MSMBC on it’s election night coverage and actually adding to the viewership numbers. I say, hopefully, because I will watch only if Romney is winning. I want to hear Chris, Ed, Lawrence and Rachael do some serious bawling, crying an or screaming. I guess we’ll all be called racists according to them if Romney prevails. (for you lefties, that means wins.)
    If Obama wins, I’ll return to where I can watch a fair and balanced approach. GO MITT

  • Mark2

    Chris Matthews is on fire!!! LOL

  • Mark2

    The Pew Poll was among a national sample of 3,815 adults.

    Likely Voters:
    Obama = 50%
    Romney = 47%

    Party ID:
    Democrats = 36%
    Republicans = 32%
    Independents = 29%
    None = 3%

    Party with Leaners:
    Obama = 48%
    Romney = 46%

    You guys have to remember that many Republicans stopped registering as a Republican and started registering as Independents. This is the main reason why the vast majority of polls show more for Dems when it comes to Party ID. And it’s another reason why you see a higher number of Independents going for Romney, because many of them are actually Conservative and used to be registered as Republicans in the past but now ID themselves as Independents. This, more than anything is what’s confusing to the Right-Wingers who complain about the weighting of Party ID.

    I trust the Pew Polling group more than I trust any other Pollster. This Poll combined with the fact that Obama’s Approval rating is 50% and above with most major polls leads me to believe that he will get another 4 years and I will lose a little over $3,000 and miss out on winning a little over $20,000.

  • Matthew

    The Gallup poll today does not align with the talking point about the Independent gap. Of course, Gallup has been an outlier for most of October, and they got it way wrong in 2008 and 2010, so…whatever.

  • Mark2

    I will be watching John King and his Interactive Electoral Map.

    There’s nobody that even come close to him and what he does on election nights.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Ratboy: Hope you saw my posted message just 5 minutes before you asked me about the Red Cross. THey are back there now, in the cold, coming inside to use the restrooms.

    Loved you “Rachel Is On Fire” post. Some people here have very active imaginations, so convinced that they can B.S. the sane people here into believing that a dog is a cat.

    Dream on, dreamers!!! (AHHH…hahahahahahahaha.)

  • Raz

    Ralph, glad you have your power back, it’s too cold to be without this time of year. Upstate by the grace of G-d was spared the worst of it for the most part.

  • grets

    The concert was across all NBC-owned stations so just to look at MSNBC and CNBC’s numbers is not accurate. For instance, on the NBC-network it had 6.26 million viewers. It was also across other cable stations they owned.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Chris Matthews, aka “Mr. Tingles,” is preparing himself for tomorrow night’s MSNBC election coverage and Romney win by choosing which of his 3rd floor windows he will leap from onto innocent passers-by on Manhattan’s W49th Street. lol

  • Rick in MT

    I have been on vacation. Fortunately it was out of the country therefore I did not have to listen to all the Political BS.

    Do you think that next Monday the rating numbers will plummet because everybody is burnt out on all of the political rehtoric and need to watch the cartoon network to make sense of it all.

  • Ratboy

    Classy Campaign!!
