  •  Yes, it does happen, (9+ / 0-)

    but in this case I would guess that a late shift would favor Obama because of Sandy. The fact is that Americans just saw images of a Chief Executive responding effectively to a huge disaster with fresh memories in their data banks of GWB in the back of their minds.

      If God caused Katrina because she was worried about teh gays and the debauchery of Burboun Street then. . .

      God really really didn't want Mitt Romney elected because she ensured that President Obama had a chance to do what he does best.  (Be a human being).

      I think that Obama was on his way to electoral victory anyway, but God didn't want that much doubt.

      •  yah really, i've been waiting for that. (4+ / 0-)

        God sent Sandy in order to show the public the difference between a highly competent leader who clearly cares, and the previous instance of a less-than-competent leader who might or might not actually care.  

        What I really do not get, is people who are so ideological that they can't even grasp the edge of reality about their elected leaders.  

        I gave GWB Senior full credit for Desert Storm, and Reagan full credit for the disarmament treaty with the USSR, and Nixon full credit for China and EPA.  That does not mean I gave any of them a pass on certain other stuff.  

        And I love Obama like I love my friends, but even so I've had my fair share of criticism along the way.  

        One needs to be objective or at least fair, and make distinctions between the person, the party, and the policies.  

        Get a call from GOP GOTV? Talk their ear off! Keep 'em busy! Plus one long call to a progressive = minus two or three calls to undecideds!

    •  In '96 and '80 the late shift was against (0+ / 0-)

      the incumbent.

      I will say though that Obama is under performing in some blue states with large undecideds.  I would not be surprised to see a larger than expected Obama pop vote total as a result.

      I think we are going, as I wrote above.
