My prediction for tonights debate

Fox will declare Romney the winner.
MSNBC will declare Obama the winner.
Romney will get a 1 point bounce in the polls. This bounce will die within a week.
Everyone will declare Obama a winner on November 6th at about 11:30 PM Central.

1. Predictions for debates are like bubble gum fortunes

Both guys are seasoned debaters and will probably do OK. Who are they going to convince anyway? "Undecided" voters? LOL, the "undecided" will probably stay undecided until the last possible moment.

Then as soon as the debate is over both parties will have all hands on deck to give 16,346 reasons why either Obama or Romney "won" the debate, depending on party affiliation, and the pundits will say the same things they say every 4 years.

Yawn. I will be watching the Yankee game.

7. I've come to the conclusion that undecided voters are one of two types:

1) the type who wants to vote for the winner, so wait until they think they know who will win;
2) the type who wants attention.

I wish just once the dems would step up to the plate & go after the non-voters. My bad. That would mean that their policies would have to appeal to more of the 99% instead of the 1%.

2. My sentiments exactly . . .

except for the 1% bounce. Some pollsters might give it to him, but the only poll I pay any attention to is the 7-11 coffee poll . . . currently:

Obama - 60%
Wrongney - 40%

5. That is a ridiculous assumption...

They called the race for Obama at 11 PM in 2008, and all of the "at risk" states that are critical will have their votes in by 8 or 9 PM.
