  •  I myself agree with (5+ / 0-)

    Markos that Obama is virtually certain to win.  

    Romney is a loser and the GOP is running a loser campaign that is destined to lose.  The RNC's pathetic and disgusting convention has made that clear.

    •  All true -- but he can still steal the election. (9+ / 0-)

      Voter suppression is a BFD.

      VOTER SUPPRESSION IS A BFD.

      Am I wrong?

        it will only matter if the race is very close in certain affected states, and also close nationwide. It is only one factor in a sea of competing factors.

      •  Hope you're out there registering voters (3+ / 0-)

        All these cries and hand-wringing about voter suppression works my nerves. What the f*ck are the whiners doing to ensure we have a large enough voter pool? Hell, I live in Florida and we are working to bring in more people.

        Get to work, dangit!

        Ugh!

        •  i'm not hand wringing (3+ / 0-)

          i just don't want people to see predictions like this and assume we have it in the bag.

          of course Obama should win this election 7 times out of 10.

          if the election is fair.

          and we know it isn't.

          so diaries by kos and headlines and polls saying we have it won scare me.

          we all have to donate and canvass and phone bank and work like hell in these final 66 days

          CALL EVERYONE YOU KNOW in OH, PA, FL, NC and TX. Make sure they have the ID they need to vote, and make sure YOU are registered and ready to vote!

        •  Not enough. The D registratx in PA is down astro- (0+ / 0-)

          nomically. We need dramatic federal intervention, and we need it now. It's likely already too late. These laws are blatantly unconstitutional. Do you think the Dems will file suit about a stolen election if they lose? Not a chance. "For the good of the country..." (Um, where have we heard that before?)

          As to my registering voters -- I live in NM, where voter suppression isn't in place (yet), and Obama is way ahead. Just how am I supposed to help with voter registration in PA and FL?
