Why mittens is more fucked than he realizes

After seeing the thread about the 7-11 cup race I went to the site and looked thru my state (TX).

http://www.7-eleven.com/7-Election/NationalResults.aspx

In Killeen, very much a military town (base,etc...) POTUS is waaay in front (62-38) And it is in the **heart of TX**, not one of our urban areas/counties. So much for certain pundits/repukes/articles, etc.. that have tried to say that the military population is leaning towards mittens and his b.s.

Only area in TX where mittens leads is Grapevine, $uburb way to the north where alot of mitt-like people live.

Goodness...POTUS is even ahead in Hillsboro, TX area..down near Waco (Baylor area, bible belt, around where chimpass had his, cough, cough, "ranch")

Yeah. Mittens is fucked. He is not only losing the urban parts of TEXAS but the rural areas and some of the suburbs (Arlington).. I realize he is not going to get TX overall, but if you take these **areas' counterparts in other states**, he is fucked on a national level. More than he will ever admit (yeah, about those internal polls of yours, Mitt???)
Glad to see that the 7-11 site has expanded the list of individual cities and more rural areas...last time I looked it only had the so called "urban" areas in general..which I could easily see repukes claiming as an excuse for POTUS taking the lead.

1. Blue is clearly Americas favorite color...

I hope though that people were really choosing their favorite based on who they want for President. If so this is going to be an Obama landslide. I hope Mitt gets caught under it.

2. I just got my blue Obama cup in Dallas.

Hot chocolate. Lots of red Willard cups there. Not nearly as many Obama cups.

3. Given that 7-11 predicted Bush winning in 2000 and 2004, that gives them a lot of credibility now.

21. They correctly predicted an Obama win in 2008.


I just thought it was more important to point out that it the 7-11 "poll" isn't biased in favor of Dems.

5. Grapevine was one of the ten places

they picked for $arah Palin's pathetic movie to open in. Place is chock full of teabaggers. Fortunately, I escaped a year ago.

7. Yep...I shoulda said more fucked than he will ADMIT to being....

Any day now I expect to see Ryan sipping from a blue 7-11 cup as he stands behind mittens on stage (given Ryan's onstage facial expressions/body language recently)

10. Why are so many red states not participating? That does kind of skew the results.

I'm sure Obama is winning anyway, but this survey is just a joke.

remind them to go help the Tarrant County Democratic Party.

23. we need more money

I hate to even mention that...but that's part of the problem.

I don't understand why they don't flood us with some cash.
We could win.

I know the County Chair is working on it, and he does a good job.
It's frustrating. We need some national money here.

12. Provo shows Romney at 52%

Maybe it's that the Mormons don't go to the 7-11, but if that's remotely representative, that's seriously, seriously bad news for Romney.

27. True, but the cups can be used for other beverages, too.

If someone really wanted to 'vote' at 7-11, they could get hot chocolate or soda or something without caffeine. Personally, I got the hot chocolate. Mmmmm, Hershey's.

20. Caveat

I have "voted" five times for Obama in the past two weeks. I would have voted another five times on my way to work but they were out of Obama cups!

24. We need to find out

who is responsible for counting the votes in Texas. I know we have the Secretary of State, but what about the counties, who are the people responsible for counting those votes?

Texas should go blue this election, if it doesn't, then something is wrong.

25. This OP is why I love DU

I mean, it's also great to get turned on to links of interesting news stories and opinion pieces written elsewhere, but this is what makes DU so unique. We have our own nation wide team of citizen reporters who constantly fill in the missing context to all kinds of interesting developments that might otherwise fly right past all of us who aren't "locals".

Thanks for sharing this observation.

30. I saw lots of Romney signs ("lots" meaning around 5 or 6)

 

Of course, this is DuPage County, IL. Pretty conservative.
