Would Sandy crash Dems' voting base in the NEast?

It sounds like Sandy is making a huge mess in the NorthEast, blue states. Floodings will take awhile to receed. Will all this harvoc slow down Dems voting next Tues ?

Paves the way for a landslide. God is with US.

So, what, New York is going to go for Romney?? I don't think so. Would be glorious if it happened though! Remember 1984?

I think it will be a wash as far as the damage slowing both, but I am worried about Obama turning it into a "hero" moment. He is sure to make political hay out of it.

That was a glorious year. OH was 23, now 18. FL was 21 now 29. Much have changed... FL is far more important than it has ever been. PA lost ground, too.

how much the EC has changed due to population shifts. Look at TX and CA. NY has lost some EVs. So has MA and CT.

If it's close, watch for dem governors to try to keep their polls open an extra day or two. This whole Sandy deals certainly give them a built in excuse. I think this freezes the polls in place which will be good for Romney.

Lots of people from the north moved to FL in the housing boom, registered here to vote.

When housing went Kaboom, they are no longer here. Yet, by census, FL has 29. It would go down next census. However, with the recent lost in population, a vote in FL may worth 1.5 votes from another state, if you know what I mean.

Your idea that God caused, or is using, the hurricane to help Romney win would be funny if it wasn't so sad.

You know, that is as crazy as your op. You are saying God caused me to be atheist, and presumably burn in hell forever, just to make you laugh.

So yeah, religion is evil, in part because it caused you to say something evil.

It can be evil too. Just look what the commies did with it. What's the death toll on that one?

Greater Philadelphia is greatly impacted and Pennsylvania is really close. Given the higher Dumocratic turnout in the urban areas, I think this could definitely help Romney.

Atheism is a religion now? Haven't we gone over this, I know bible thumpers are pretty slow.

Is bald a hair color? Is not collecting postage stamps a hobby? Atheism is not a religion.

I think it could go either way.

While some of the dems in the big cities may not vote, the press is really playing up that Obama has quit campaigning to run the disaster relief and Romney is still campaigning. That could play out poorly for Romney.

He's just messing with me.

Let it go. There is a 2000+ post thread in GTRI, and he hijacked probably 10 other threads there before (I assume being told to) stop.

Voter fraud is so common in the Dem party.

It is awash (so to speak). It could help or hurt the GOP. I see a decrease of voters of both parties and throw in voter fraud and we are back to where we started. Mitt needs to win but so do key GOP senate races.

What did Ellen Barkin say about a certain group being washed out to sea?? I am glad O is on top of things unlike Benghazi.
