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.

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

Erm, yes...no doubt...unless it's because more people are grasping that your guy is a greedy, lying, unprincipled jackal. Whatever.

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.

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.
