You would think the narrative for the morning would be Romney;s Iran geography ignorance.

In actuality, Chuck Todd will provide analysis on a Ras/Faux News/Politico Push Poll which states that Ohio, North Carolina, and Nevada is now strongly tending Romney.

Seems that the African American female over 56 with a landline phone only and didn't recognize the 666 area code accidentally answered.  She previously voted for Obama but is now voting enthusiastically voting for Romney because she is strongly pro-choice and he would protect her right to have an abortion.

As the three African-American and Latina and Muslim, and females indicate, Romney seems very concerned about them and they couldn't make up their minds.  All three.

***Poll also indicates all three already early voted for Obama in their states.  This was the last question and doesn't count because it was before the final debate, which they made sure to watch after getting home from work at 5 and cooking dinner for their fatherless children.  The home that is likely to be an apartment with no health insurance and gun violence thrives.  Paul Ryan hasn't shown up to teach the morals or decency ethics or self-esteem.

This will be repeated numerous times to a fair and balanced Andrea Mitchel or T. Hall.

Meet the Press will also focus on this amazing new trend.

Ratings and all trump truth in this situation.  Perhaps they will let the insane Al Sharpton break in with actual decent polls.  He may even point out a few blatant lies for the night.  But I really did love how he was able to get this in

, "At this point wouldn't people prefer Bush/Cheney over Romney/Ryan.  At least you were clear on what they did and didn't stand for.  We honestly don't know what this guy believes.  Even the Republicans don't know.
I'm early voting in Texas.  My Mom got her reminder when she accidentally answered her land-line with a friendly reminder to early vote.  Even in our super red Texas county.  

We wouldn't count in any state anyway.  We have cellphones and know how to spell Syria.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Their constituency is made up of instinct-driven people and instinct-driven people act in response to external and emotional prompts. Also, they are creatures of habit. And their habitual behaviors are imitation, repetition and admiration. So, the political operative's task is to insure that the right prompts are routinely and predictably delivered. The message has to be consistent and constant. That's why Obama had to be continuously demonized. Because, the fan base, being directed by eternal and emotional prompts, is susceptible to being hijacked. Fans are fickle. If a new brighter star comes along, they are likely to jump ship. The last four years has been all about keeping the base from being diverted to Obama. Some of it was in 2008. Special elections have shown that despite all their efforts, there has been continued slippage. So, they picked the matinee idol as their candidate. But, poor Willard looks the part until he opens his mouth. He can't sing. He can't dance. He can't tell jokes. He can't tell good stories. Babies do not like him. Children don't like him. Even his grand children know he's no fun to be around. A man can only go so far on his looks.

    ... corporate media hacks spinning as furiously as they can for Rmoney. If President Obama has a lead of 5 percentage points in Ohio, they have to criticize him because it's not 10 points. If our guy appears to be winning four or five swing states, they have to talk about Mitt's "momentum" because he's ahead in the other three or four states.

    They're getting desperate to keep up the close horse-race narrative and to push the line that Rmoney will be elected president. And things are tight. We need to finish strong with a big GOTV effort. But the duplicity and lies of some of these lame, so-called journalists reminds one that even Sarah Palin managed to get a college degree in Communications, as depressing and scary as that is.
