I actually wrote this as a comment on The First Street Journal, but I thought it worthy of its own article.
Obama will not win any states he lost in 2008. I guarantee that. So, Obama has to hold onto the states he won in 2008. And he will lose some of those states. I guarantee that, as well.
Obama will lose Indiana and North Carolina, two states he won in 2008. That’s “settled science.” Trends show Obama losing Florida. Ohio and Virginia are sliding toward the Republican column. Nebraska split its electoral votes in 2008. The Democrat Cornhusker Kickback was so roundly despised by the Cornhusker State that I project a full slate of Republicans in their electoral college. And it is likely that New Hampshire returns to its Conservative tradition (or New England Conservative, which is far squishier than the vast majority of the nation’s Conservatives).
Here’s a map showing the 2008 US Presidential election results from US Election Atlas.org, which I’ve previously used on more than one occasion (for more detailed information or to look at previous election results, click the above link and not the map itself):
So, breaking down what I wrote above:
Indiana, North Carolina, Florida, Ohio, New Hampshire, Virginia flip from Democrat to Republican, and Nebraska goes from split electors to a full slate of Republican electors.
But Obama cannot just focus on those states. Round about 50 million Union dollars spent in Wisconsin to get rid of the Republicans (who righted Wisconsin’s economic ship and reduced Wisconsin’s tax burden) all for naught. The Republican Governor and the Republican Government survives. In fact, the Republican Governor could very easily win with a double-digit margin, making the Recall election a Republican Mandate — to the horrors of a great many Democrats, who are suddenly down-playing the Wisconsin Recall after they had previously declared it something far more. Democrats had pointed to Wisconsin and declared, basically “this is what happens when you go against the Unions and Democrats.” But what happens? You win and the Unions and Democrats (same thing, really, Socialists, all) lose. So they’re now down-playing the Recall Election after they basically spent 50 million dollars leading up to it.
So Obama could lose Wisconsin, the “birthplace of American Progressives”. Meatchicken (I’m from Ohio, and that’s how any honorable Ohioan would spell that State Up North, as Woody always called it) is in play. Obama could lose Meatchicken. Pennsylvania is looking stronger and stronger for Republicans this cycle. Maine could go Republican this cycle. Nevada is not a Democrat lock, by any stretch of the imagination. Iowa could flip Republican.
There are actually rumblings that New Jersey, with Chris Christie being rather liked for his major fixes to that chronically damaged and chronically Democrat state, might be ready to go Republican this cycle.
For various scenarios, do view 270 To Win.
There are essentially 3 main reasons why Barack Obama is doing so poorly:
- Barack Obama himself, and his massively over-reaching, totalitarian Socialist agenda that too many patriotic Americans hate.
- The TEA Party and their Life, Liberty, Pursuit of Happiness, Patriotic aims.
- The exploding blogosphere, breaking through the Hard-Left agenda of lamestream media.
Those three points should very likely mean the death of the contempt of Federal Court Barack Obama Regime.
(The chart on the right, of the top political contributors from 1989 to 2011, with its absolutely one-sided Democrat nature was provided to prevent a standard Liberal lie concerning political money. Look at all the Union money going almost all Democrat and the dearth of corporate money doing anywhere near the same for Republicans. Also note the absolute absence of the Leftists’ chosen fall-guy, the Koch Brothers, from that list. Source: Open Secrets.)
