  •  A most astounding fact (10+ / 0-)

    Look at 95% white NH.  The total number of votes that were cast in 2012 exceeded the year 2008 by.....two votes.  Just two votes.  And in NH you don't have to worry about trying to come up with an elaborate turnout model.  Its not the complexity of Nevada, Florida or Virginia.  19 of 20 people showing are white at exactly the same rate as 2008.  VERY ... SIMPLE ... MATH.

    How did the crack Romney team do in predicting this "puzzle"?  They thought they were going to win NH by 3.5 pct, but instead lost it 5.6 pct. They were wrong by over 9 points  

    It wasn't an urban voter problem, instead it was an urban legend that the Romney team was competent.

    •  Now honestly (0+ / 0-)

      If you looked at the 2010 results in NH, wouldn't you think you had a shot if you were Mitt?

      I mean, doing some polling since then might have been a nice idea...

      The way to respond to the outrageous is with outrage; the way to respond to the ridiculous is with ridicule.
