Mitt Romney addresses a packed audience at a local high school gym in Concord, New Hampshire...

Friends, Republicans, we did it! Today, voters from all across the state of New Hampshire came together as one, and we have seen our biggest victory yet! Thank you all, so much. It means the world to Anne and I. Next, on to Michigan, Nevada, South Carolina, and the White House! Common sense conservatism can win out, and it shows tonight. Thank you, and God Bless!
- Mitt Romney

The problem is less the merits of what she is saying, than the fact that we have a narrative that she says insane things, and the media can keep digging them up. This is not the narrative that a serious person wants driving the campaign.

PS: She thinks Dinosaur fossils are fake.
 http://www.tnr.com/blog/the-vine/77707/odonnell-carbon-dating-bogus

she did NOT say dinosaur fossils are fake.  She simply said carbon dating can be corrupted by volcanoes and that she believes God created the earth in 6 24 hour periods.  Neither of which I agree with, but that has nothing to do with the issues she will face in the Senate.


Why don't you just move to Delaware and marry the slimy politician? You two would probably make a great match.

Senator's John Sununu and Judd Gregg, as well as AG Kelly Ayotte spend election day touring the state of New Hampshire. Mitt Romney has made several stops throughout the state, and is planning on flying directly to Michigan after the results are reported.

Ask yourself when voting which candidate will fight for you more, the taxpayer. Will it be the man who raised taxes over 87 times as Arkansas' Governor? No, my friends, it won't. It'll be the man who saved the Salt Lake City Olympics and put the state of Massachusetts on track economically. That man is Willard "Mitt" Romney!

I have no intentions of running for any other office while serving as Mideast Governor. That being said, to be quite honest, I have considered a few cabinet positions, and if I felt accepting an appointment to one of those positions would be in the best interests of the Mideast, Atlasia, and myself, I would do it. But then, and only then, would I ever leave office. At the end of the day, I am truly committed to the well-being of this region, and will do everything in my power to help you grow. I will never quit on this region, or this country.

I wish Atlas made all the primary decisions, not voters. I'm confident if us forum Republicans made the calls, we'd be looking at a good chance of a Senate majority.

Pbrower, how is a 44% approval in Colorado a pure toss-up but a 45% approval in Wisconsin is lean Democrat?

An incumbent normally has a 6% advantage over a challenger during a statewide campaign (Governor, US Senate, maybe a single-district House seat) or a Presidential election.  unless he implodes through scandals, extreme gaffes, or international debacles. This advantage is not enough to rescue a failure, and it might not apply when the incumbent faces a third-party nominee on his side of the political spectrum.

The President gets plenty of attention from the media and his campaign can usually compliment the President's statements. The challenger or someone running for the open seat has no such luck.
Lets just pretend for a second that your theory makes sense...
45+6=51
That would put a Republican at around 48%. That would give Obama about a 3 point lead. According to your own "rules", lean Democrat is 5-9% margin, which is well above 3 points.

O'Donnell would win. America would lose, regardless of who won. If I had to choose, I would also vote for O'Donnell, just because I think she is slightly more equipped to lead this nation than Alvin Greene. Reverse the tickets and I'd vote for Pelosi, easily. She is by far the most intelligent person of these candidates.
11711  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Thank you REpubulicans for completely screwing our chances in 2010 on: September 15, 2010, 10:22:01 am
dude, you can't see the forest for the trees.  this anti establishment movement now sets its sights on the Dems.

IT'S DELAWARE!  There's  no way Christine O'Donnell wins in November.

but it probably means the GOP is leading in CA, WA, WI, NV

There's no way the Democrats lose CA, and I think Reid will hold in Nevada.
I still think Republicans have a chance. It'd be really helpful if McMahon or Raese could win, and I think both are still possible. Raese is only down by 5, and McMahon by 6. We're tied or leading in all the races we need to win, minus Nevada.

Mitt Romney spends the day traveling the state of New Hampshire with various meet and greets...

I am confident that we will win. New Hampshire residents believe in our message of hope and common sense!

Also, Doug Hoffman will be playing 3rd party spoiler in NY-23... again (link).

This guy is so selfish. I question the judgment of anyone who would vote for him.
11714  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: For GOPers: How would you vote in Delaware and Nevada? on: September 14, 2010, 10:21:33 pm
Honestly, probably Angle in Nevada and Coons in Delaware. The Angle campaign isn't as bad as it was right after the primary, but if she gets all nutty again, NOTA.
11715  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Mideast Gubernatorial Debate on: September 14, 2010, 09:59:01 pm
Besides the budget, I seek to improve our education system in the Mideast. That is something I only got to slightly improve last session with the weighted grades amendment. It is vital that our school facilities are better, we have better tools to teacher our students, and better teachers to use those tools effectively. Unemployment is still a major concern in the region, and hopefully the Assembly can pass some sort of job bill next session.

I also think a child board would be good for regional governments, and several times have stated my support on the forum, as well as personally message Dave about that. I will continue that fight if I am reelected.

If Coons doesn't wage a spirited campaign, O'Donnell will win. I'd bet my life savings on it.
You're really questioning the intelligence of Delaware voters with that statement.
11717  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Alternative Elections / Re: Dream Scenarios on: September 14, 2010, 04:16:31 pm
2012:
Mitt Romney manages to snag the Republican nomination, and thanks to a weak economy, narrowly defeats Obama/Biden.

Mitt Romney/Mitch Daniels vs. Barack Obama/Joseph Biden



2016:
Romney has a successful first term, with unemployment numbers going back down and the economy continuing to slowly improve. By 2015, major portions of Obamacare have been repealed. Desperate to gain momentum, Democrats become the first major party to nominate a female for President, but it fails to swing the election. Republicans officially win the West, but start losing ground in the South due to Romney's moderate social stances.

Mitt Romney/Mitch Daniels vs. Kathleen Sebelius/Andrew Cuomo



2020:
Mitt Romney's second term goes relatively smoothly, with no major drops. Vice President Mitch Daniels opts not to run for the Presidency. The Democrats nominate former Governor John Hickenlooper, and Governor Carte Goodwin is selected as his running mate. Though Romney's approvals are mid-50's, many do not want to see 12 years of Republicans in the White House, and Hickenlooper's moderate stances gain him victory. The Republicans perform strong in the Northeast, while Democrats make huge gains in the South and West.

John Hickenlooper/Carte Goodwin vs. Chris Christie/Joe Miller

Thank you, Governor  Tongue. This proves my presumption in the Atlasia exists no sense of humor.

Be fair, Hans, Tmthforu is investing his sense of humor on what-ifs.
Thank you. Tongue

But seriously, Hans, I don't mind humor, and have gotten in on some in Atlasia myself. But what we're doing here is no better than what he did. I don't consider publicly slandering and ridiculing another human being to be humorous.

At a rally in Concord, Mitt Romney is endorsed by AG Kelly Ayotte. Senator's Sununu and Gregg are at hand...

America can only stay a great nation if we have great leaders! Mitt Romney is a great leader, and will be a great President. I ask all of you to give your vote to Mitt Romney. Give your vote to a man who will fight for you, not the special interests!

Mitt Romney sets up shop in New Hampshire, where he will be campaigning up until primary day...

New Hampshire, you have a key part in this primary process. The candidate you choose in a couple months could very well likely be the Republican nominee. I've spent years in the private sector, and I know what needs to be done to get this economy back on track: smart, conservative decisions. Let's cut our national deficit, create more private sector jobs, and make the government smaller. The people should be running the government, not vice-versa. I promise you all, that as President, I will do everything in my part to implement smart, conservative principles to our economic policy.

Mitt Romney speaks to a crowd in Flint, Michigan, where he criticizes Huckabee's soft stance on crime...

As Congressman, Tom Tancredo voted for tougher penalties against crime the House.  I supported those measures in the Gubernatorial mansion. However, once candidate in this race has consistently been weak on crime: Mike Huckabee. He supports letting off convicted rapists and murderers like Wayne DuMond because he feels sorry for them. Is that the kind of leader you want to lead our nation and be in charge of our childrens future?

Mitt Romney, who is being accompanied by his wife and Sean Hannity, headlines multiple Republican fundraisers across the state of Michigan, then travels to Mount Pleasant, Michigan, where he is endorsed by a popular Republican figure in Michigan...

Today, I'm proud to stand beside the next President of the United States of America. I'm proud to be voting for this man, because I believe his policies will only continue the successes we implemented while I served as Governor. Michiganders, lets all work together and get this great man elected into the White House, and let's start it with a primary win a couple days! I'll be touring the state for the next few days, and hopefully we can appeal to more and more people about the need for conservative change.
