5. I don't get it.

If the polls are correct and it's a dead heat, why would Wall Street target Obama if it's that close?

Or does Wall Street know something the rest of us don't know?

7. They can do the math. They also have access to people close to both

campaigns, especially Romney's. And they're probably not hearing good news for Romney about Ohio.

9. Also, stealing this election will not be a 2000 experience. Stealing will be tough...

...with INTENSE national and international scrutiny.

16. absolutely. also stealing 2000 and 2004 really exposed their dirty tricks gang to the light of day.

I'm not so sure the rethuglican powers that be will want to risk further intense exposure to get Rmoney/Lyin' elected.

19. It's close nationally. But we don't elect a president nationally.

Mitt's currently running up his numbers in states he was already winning in.

Going from 60% in Alabama to 70% in Alabama boosts his standing in national polls. And does absolutely nothing for actually getting elected.

In swing states, Mitt needs basically all of them to win. And he's nowhere close to that in state polling.

20. Sorkin predicted this in an old episode of The West Wing.

Republican donors approach Leo McGarry (Candidate Bartlet's campaign manager, & future White House Chief Of Staff) in order to make a donation. One of them remarks "We're having second thoughts about 'our' candidate."

21. Ha

They don't want to back loser.Even Rupert Murdock In 2004 made donation to Kerry and to Hillary In 2008 Primary campagin to cover
his bases.Ignore gallup for a minute.what If more registered voters who don't show up In likely voter screens do show up.

Wall street may be hearing from both campagins on reality of race and they know Obama Is winning.Obama has the energy.RomneyRyan are just doing scripted talking points.Little engery from them.Wall street may be trying to convince Obama not
to push for more regulation In second term.even If they have to give up the bush tax cuts.No new regulations mean more to them.

As for senate all signs look to democrats keeping It with the present margain or maybe a seat or 2 higher.

Still unknown on house but we need to be prepared for possable outcome of Obama In White House,a democratic senate and a
Republican house with perhapes a narrowy margain than now.

24. Jamie Dimon and Lloyd Blankfein are Democrats

They're the Rockefeller Republicans-turned-New Democrats: conservative on economic issues, but liberal on social issues.

Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sucks calls himself a "a registered Democrat, and a Rockefeller Republican ... conservative on fiscal issues and more liberal on social issues".

Jamie Dimon is a "Rahmbo Democrat" IMO.

They could use the Citizens United to force persuade their employees to vote Democratic.
