Even Washington Post Admits Palins Saved McCain From Worse Loss

addthis_url=”; addthis_title=”; addthis_pub=’migulski’;

Love her or loathe her, the data appear somewhere close to conclusive that Palin did little to help — and, in fact, did some to hurt — McCain’s attempts to reach out to independents and Democrats. But just because Palin doesn’t appear to have helped McCain move to the middle doesn’t mean that picking her was the wrong move. Remember where McCain found himself this past summer. He had won the Republican nomination, but the GOP base clearly felt little buy-in into his campaign. A slew of national polls reflected that energy gap, with Democrats revved up about the election and their candidate and Republicans somewhere between tepid and glum. Enter Palin, who was embraced with a bear hug by the party’s conservative base. All of a sudden, cultural conservatives were thrilled at the chance to put “one of their own” in the White House. In fact, of the 60 percent of voters who told exit pollsters that McCain’s choice of Palin was a “factor” in their final decision, the Arizona senator won 56 percent to 43 percent. For skittish conservatives looking for more evidence that McCain understood their needs and concerns, Palin did the trick. It’s hard to imagine conservatives rallying to McCain — even to the relatively limited extent that they did — without Palin on the ticket. And without the base, McCain’s loss could have been far worse.

Unmarried Women Responsible for Obama Taking Power

addthis_url=”; addthis_title=”; addthis_pub=’migulski’;

“If not for the overwhelming support of unmarried women, John McCain would have won the women’s vote and with it, the White House,” said the international research firm Greenberg Quinlan Rosner.

Tuesday night, unmarried women supported the Democratic candidate by a stunning 70 to 29 percent margin, the firm said in a summary of its calculations, based on the Edison/Mitofsky National Election
Pool published by CNN.

Maybe there’s a reason these broads are unmarried…if they are attracted to the slick and sleazy type they are going to be dumped on by men for the rest of their life.

I have to say I totally did not see this demographic problem coming. That is what happens when a generations of girls are brought up by their TV sets and not by parents. Instead of doing what your parents teach you is right, you do what the TV tells you to do, and that is certainly true with this past election.

Electoral College: McCain/Palin 304, Obama/Biden 234

1. Averaging out the state by state polls. (This is the base where I start from, but it is useless unless the following points are also taken into consideration)
2. Correcting rampant oversampling of Democrats (starting to get a little less rampant, bi-poller as another, more famous blogger with the initials AJS likes to say).
3. Factoring in which states the candidates are campaigning AND advertising in down the stretch. This has been my number 1 factor. Their internal polls are more accurate than media polls, and the best way to get a window on the internal polls is to see where the candidates are putting their money where their mouth is, and also where they are putting their boots on their feet.
4. Including an increased Black turnout.
5. An energized youth vote/an apathetic youth vote.
6. Voter fraud. ACORN. Walking Around Money. etc…
7. Throwing in a modest Bradley Effect (About 2 to 3 pts, since some of you have asked)…I don’t believe it will be zero, but to play it safe I have been using a low number. Many liberals themselves have warned of up to around a 6 pt. Bradley Effect. So I’m using a pretty conservative number.

Tomorrow, my final projection! Woohoo!

Is the GOP Base More Motivated Than the Liberal Base?

addthis_url=”; addthis_title=”; addthis_pub=’migulski’;

Everyone had assumed a massive tidal wave of left-wing Obama fanatics would give him an insurmountable lead in the early voting.
That didn’t happen.
People are still assuming Obama will have a larger turnout than McCain/Palin…just not as much as they thought. I still think it is likely that the turnout will be about equal, perhaps Dems +2, in which case Obama probably loses.
Campaign Spot has a nice article about how the conservative base is probably being undercounted by the media:

And if the GOP base is fired up and showing up in places like Texas and South Carolina, is there some reason it wouldn’t show up in Indiana, North Carolina or Virginia? I suppose it’s possible, but I wouldn’t bet on it.
