2. I think Dennis Miller put it best.

"I don't believe the polls!"

4. Hmmmmmmm, "321 Electoral votes a Giant Giant Mandate"

Final score: The Pres 332
Mittens 206

but, of course, this IS NOT a mandate to the bubble crew.

11. Lot of upset white people in that video

I think I might have spotted a few Hispanics and then the token female Black pundit on Fox.

8. Working the phones for President Obama locally, in a largely Republican area,

the election results didn't surprise me in the least. We identified ourselves as with the Obama campaign, but were largely gauging the degree of support for either candidate, and why. Those who supported the President were usually very clear as to why. The others were mostly just voting against Obama. No one had anything positive to say for Romney, and a few weren't even sure who he was (one woman just said she wouldn't vote for "the Black guy," phrased more politely than SHE did). On election day a man walked in to ask if we had any yard signs left. He said he'd been planning to vote for Mitt, but once in the voting booth, changed his mind. Now he'd like an Obama sign for his yard to show his neighbors his change of heart. NO one was much in support of Romney, just voting against Obama.

9. You could also tell by the crowds at Romney rallies...

Go to an Obama rally and the audience was cheering.

Go to a Romney rally and the audience was booing.

14. In Columbus Ohio the day before the election Obama came to town w/J-Z and Springsteen ...

.... and played to a packed house where an NHL team plays although Mitt came to
town w/ the Marshall Tucker Band (last time in the top 40 was 1974) and had an
event in an airport hangar at Port Columbus ...... I had a friend who went to Mitt's
event and said it was just sad.

16. Free ear worm.



Although, I doubt that OSU students and many other groups would waste
5 minutes to go out of their way to see the Marshall Tucker Band and Mitt
Romney in an airport hangar.

10. Cripes! No wonder they were surprised

I was pretty confident on election night - just worried about repubs stealing some states like 2000 and 2004. For the most part I looked at the internet at the various polls, surfed the more independent news sites and yes, was on DU a lot, but I found we're not even close to an echo chamber. We dissected, analyzed, fretted over, and argued about every poll. Fox News apparently didn't. Did Freerepublic pretty much go along with them as well? The only person in this whole segment who is off the message of, "The polls are going our way," is Dennis Miller, and then he says he doesn't believe them.

Did Fox actually misread the polls, or were they deliberately misreading them for some reason? Were they betting that good (false) news would get their side hyped up and out to vote instead of possibly depressing their turnout because if Romney's going to win in such a landslide then some of them could stay at home and not actually have to vote for a Mormon over a "Muslim?"

12. Talk about being out of touch

Wingers, as usual were so out of touch they failed to see how much America did not like Mitt Romney
