601  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Alternative Elections / Re: Pawlenty/Pence vs. Obama/Biden on: May 30, 2011, 04:59:17 pm

Obama has increased taxes not lowered them. Why do you call obamacare? It's a tax increase.

You might have a point. But he is no friend of the free market.

How so? He has lowered taxes for every wealth column. Isn't that what your brand of conservative is all about?

As a gamer myself, from what I've seen most are either Democrats or Libertarians. I have yet to meet a Republican or socially conservative gamer, honestly.

They probably got a slightly more negative sample.
605  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: The Official Obama Approval Ratings Thread on: May 24, 2011, 03:00:19 pm
Gallup back at 51-42.
606  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Mitch Daniels -- not running for president on: May 22, 2011, 11:41:24 am
Not surprised. I have been saying he wouldn't run for quite some time.

Obama will pick up Missouri and Arizona, while maybe losing Indiana.

This TL really warranted a bump? Come on, the result is pretty damn obvious.

I liked it.

Well it's written nice but I think any TL involving Edwards is pretty stale, mostly because they all end in either two ways:

1. Scandal breaks during campaign, huge GOP landslide.
2. Scandal breaks after Edwards wins, huge GOP landslide in 2012.

610  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: What are Obama's odds of reelection/defeat? on: May 15, 2011, 07:32:27 pm
80-20
611  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: The Official Obama Approval Ratings Thread on: May 15, 2011, 10:10:52 am
Gallup's at 48-45. Down 2 from Friday, likely a negative sample. We'll see if it goes back up later today.
612  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Alternative Elections / Re: Ultimate Republican Primary on: May 13, 2011, 02:39:26 pm
A Reagan/Roosevelt ticket would be amazing in my view!

Yeah, that makes total sense. Pro Big-Business, Anti-Union/Anti Big-Business, Pro-Union.

PERFECT TICKET!

Nobody.
614  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Alternative Elections / Re: 2016: Romney/Rubio vs. Obama/Gillibrand on: May 08, 2011, 06:15:12 pm
Obama in a huge landslide. Hell, any Democrat in a huge landslide. If Romney never got unemployment below 8.5% in four years of governing, then the whole issue that got him elected in the first place is a benefit for Obama.

Guys, don't use logic. JCL is a troll through and through. Best not to even reply to him.
616  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Is Bobby Jindal eligible to be President? on: May 07, 2011, 09:31:49 pm
No.

Obama is darker?
617  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Is Bobby Jindal eligible to be President? on: May 07, 2011, 07:53:02 pm
No, he is not white, so his Presidency is ineligible. /birther mentality.

But in the real world, yes, he's perfectly able. 
618  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Indiana on: May 07, 2011, 01:04:34 pm
I think Obama will have to win 55% nationwise in order to win Indiana. Indiana wasn't a main focus for the GOP in 2008, as resources went to other states and the national GOP was simply relying on the state to somehow stay Republican.

In 2012, Indiana will be a greater focus, as the GOP now knows they aren't unstoppable here. There is also a relatively strong Tea Party movement in Indiana, which should help turnout for the Republican candidate.

Any decent GOP candidate (Romney, Huckabee, Pawlenty) should win Indiana. The only way I could see Indiana staying Democratic is if Trump or Palin were nominated, though even then, it'd stay relatively close.

Well, of course, since Obama won it in 2008 with 53% nationally, this makes perfect sense.
619  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Obama vs. Daniels on: May 07, 2011, 01:02:27 pm
The result of this poll is probably pretty close to the actual result we would get. Of course, it will be a few points more favorable to Daniels, maybe 52% to 47%, or somewhere along those lines.



Obama/Biden - 359 - 52.7%
Daniels/??? - 179 - 47.3%

620  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Alternative Elections / Re: 2012 Election Night Timeline: Michelle Bachmann vs. Barack Obama on: May 06, 2011, 07:37:22 pm
NEVER WRITE ANOTHER TIMELINE AGAIN, THIS SUCKS BECAUSE IT SHOWS OBAMA WINNING BY A LARGE MARGIN AGAINST A HORRIBLE CANDIDATE.

...........................
621  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: North Carolina on: May 06, 2011, 07:34:45 pm
He will get somewhere between 50% and 55% in the state.
622  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Obama vs. Daniels on: May 06, 2011, 07:20:41 pm
Remember how Daniels was OMB for the Bush Administration? Remember how his tenure as OMB saw a billions dollar surplus turn into twice of a deficit?

The ads practically write themselves people. Throw in some footage of his inevitable talking points about lowering the deficit, and talk about his tenure as OMB for the Bush Admin, win several hundred to several thousand votes.

. . . A Trend that caused him to resign his position as director of the OMB in protest.  There's a reason Bush had to replace him 2 years in.

No, I realize that. I'm just saying that even reminding people of the fact that Daniels was director of the OMB will gain Obama political points.
623  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Who is more arrogant? Romney vs. Obama on: May 05, 2011, 10:11:46 pm
Romney certainly is not arrogant.

Obama

Only Democrats can be arrogant.

Did you read the scenario?  I don't see how it's pro-Daniels if the economy continues with sluggish growth...I thought that implied gas prices only slowly lowering and staying in the mid $3 range?

Anyway, even with those circumstances, Obama could likely carry Ohio and Pennsylvania. If gas prices are slowly lowering, then they should be 2.50 range by election day. I could see NH going for Daniels, maybe. I agree that'd it be a close election though.
