Dick "I've Never Been Right Before; Why Start Now" Morris predicted a Romney 'landslide' a couple of days ago. But...oh-oh... Dick has detected storm-clouds on the horizon:
"As Election Day approaches, we must be very sensitive to last minute changes in the polls. Remember that President George W. Bush fell from a 4 point lead into a tie over the last weekend in 2000 and Clinton rose from a tie to a 5 point win in the last weekend of 1992.Erm, yes...no doubt...unless it's because more people are grasping that your guy is a greedy, lying, unprincipled jackal. Whatever.
With that caution in mind, a danger signal comes from the latest Rasmussen Poll reflecting a two point gain for Obama. Whereas before the storm, Rasmussen showed Romney two ahead, he now has the race tied at 48-48.
That is troublesome.
And, in Pennsylvania, Romney led on Wednesday night by two points but on Thursday night’s polling, he was tied.We have also seem slippage for Romney in Michigan.
More troubling, Rasmussen shows a two point gain for Obama in job approval rising from 48% to 50% in the current poll.
All of these changes are, no doubt, related to hurricane Sandy." -- www.dickmorris.com
Here's a translation of the Dick Morris Pundit Shuffle for hard-of-thinking Republicans:
"Although I originally predicted a big win for General Custer at the Little Big Horn, it seems that a lot of heavily-armed and hostile Indians are now appearing. That is troublesome."I look forward to the gentle pitter-patter of Republican tears falling on the roof as I lie in bed on Wednesday night...one of the sweetest sounds in all Nature.
