41. I have a firm grasp of reality. I look at demographic trends

Last edited Mon Oct 15, 2012, 08:39 PM - Edit history (2)

Demographics is why I know Obama's gonna demolish Romney.

Think about it.

Racists were scared TO DEATH of Obama in getting in there in 2008!
In 2008 they put ALL their forces & efforts into keeping him out of the White House. And THEN some!
You think they were lazy & ho-hum about it back then? Hardly.

I remember seeing so many McCain signs everywhere in my Georgia community.
McCain with Palin represented the America they wanted to preserve.
That T-shirt thing going on right now "Return White to the White House"...
...These folks never wanted White to LEAVE the White House the FIRST time around.

They all clustered together & voted against Obama with an energy you couldn't believe.
And Obama STILL beat McCain by 7%!

Their combined forces couldn't get past 50%.
They tried their best & it just wasn't good enough.
Obama became the 1st Black President.

Obama was an unknown quantity back then.
Now he's established with a decent record overall.
The Bin Laden thing was major.
He has killed that old trick they put on Jimmy Carter that Democrats are weak on defense.
That's why you didn't see the Republicans running on foreign policy this year.
When Ryan tried to pull that foolishness out at the VP Debates Biden made an ass out of him.
The Obama Administration killed Bin Laden, took out the Somali pirates, set the stage for Gaddafi's downfall all without losing unnecessary forces. Surgical strikes.

Even though we didn't get the proper healthcare plan we should have gotten, Obama got the notion of national health care established in America.
He came forward on the gay rights issue.
And he championed the auto industry. That's why Ohio's so strong for him now.

He won Ohio in 2008 by 5% over McCain.
In 2004 Bush beat Kerry by 2% in Ohio.

So that moved 7 percentage points from Republican to Democrat in 4 years.
Now imagine what's gonna happen after the good stuff done in this administration.

The Latino vote is gonna be EVEN stronger for Obama than last election.
Non-racist Whites are gonna be more in favor of him.
He'll get more true independents than Romney will.
Gays are no doubt going for Obama.
Most women are DEFINITELY gonna be pushing for Obama.
More Jews are probably in favor of Obama
Middle Easterners are gonna be more for Obama.
Asians are gonna be more for Obama.
Native Americans are gonna be more for Obama.
And Blacks as always are gonna hold it down for Obama.

He will own the Youth vote. More kids are eligible to vote than 4 years ago remember. This will be their 1st vote.
With Ryan on Romney's ticket, he'll sway more of the Senior vote.
Even some Republican Southerners are gonna pick Obama over Romney according to this article.

Southern whites troubled by Romney's wealth, religion

Sheryl Harris, a voluble 52-year-old with a Virginia drawl, voted twice for George W. Bush. Raised Baptist, she is convinced -- despite all evidence to the contrary -- that President Barack Obama, a practicing Christian, is Muslim.

So in this year's presidential election, will she support Mitt Romney? Not a chance.

"Romney's going to help the upper class," said Harris, who earns $28,000 a year as activities director of a Lynchburg senior center. "He doesn't know everyday people, except maybe the person who cleans his house."

She'll vote for Obama, she said: "At least he wasn't brought up filthy rich."


Union vote definitely in Obama's corner.
Non-bigoted Middle Class/Poor Class people are gonna be more for Obama.
People who have benefited from the early stages of Obamacare will be in favor of him.
People who have benefited from the stimulus will be in favor of him.

Some who may not vote for Obama will not vote for Romney either.
Some will sit it out because they're not hot on Romney for other reasons (his religion, don't trust him, etc.).
Some are going to write in Ron Paul or vote for Gary Johnson especially after how Romney treated the Ron Paul fans.

And there's that undefinable portion of people who may have once hated him but have warmed to him & will pick him.
Also Obama may be able to draw a few from the REAL majority in this country: the people that don't vote.
They may be inclined to put a vote in for Obama this go around.

Put all this together & you don't think he can't landslide Romney?
Just like last election he's gonna turn over an unexpected state.
What if he gets Arizona of all places?
Could he turn Georgia somehow?

I think he can get 55% to 60% to Romney's 40%.
Romney may be very well under 40% come Election Day.
Either way Obama's exceeding 50%.
Worse case scenario is 15% lead but I guarantee it ain't gonna be close.
