Do you know what is interesting?

I went over to the free republic earlier today and everyone seemed so confident. Romney is going to win! At first I seriously wondered "what do they know that I don't?". Did they have some kind of poll showing Romney surging in the final hours? Did they have early voting numbers that showed Romney had taken the lead? Did they have some kind of objective analysis to show that the polls are off?

Nope. Every one of them, with their predictions of a "landslide" and "double digit Romney victory!" all boil down to "I got a feeling...". They are not basing this on anything objective. They aren't basing it on statistical analysis or any kind of expert opinion, its all about what their gut says will happen. It is things like "I've looked around and realized Obama can't win" or "everyone I talk to agrees that Obama is terrible." It is, in the end, all based on delusion. It is based on an America that does not exist. They have nothing other than a leap of faith.

I would feel bad for them if they weren't such assholes.
