Porchlight

Stephanopolus (I think) said with a great smile that the person leading the polls in the beginning of September always wins the election.

This is not true, as I'm sure has already been pointed out (I haven't caught up yet) - McCain was ahead in early September 2008.

OT for Texas JOMers:

If anyone is watching the Texans game, keep an eye out for Billy Ray Cyrus' set at halftime (not sure if it will air on TV).

Mr. Porchlight will be playing fiddle in his backup band, and Mr. Porchlight's brother will be playing banjo.

I know, it's kinda silly, but a gig's a gig. :)

"Pollsters will tell you that they cannot always count on voters to level with them about which candidates they favor.

Hah. Pollsters blaming error on lying respondents. That was my business for three decades and I never thought of using that as an out. Damn!

It may happen occasionally, but far more likely are errors that don't show in the reliability calculations. As I mentioned here a couple of weeks ago, a pollster's goal was to get completed interviews with a minimum of 50 percent of one's sample, in the old days. Now pollsters are having to accept reaching 10 percent of all attempts. That's likely to be a far more serious problem affecting results than the rare respondent being untruthful.

Loved your California then-and-now email, DoT.

Oops, I should also have said, Florida folks might also be watching the HOU-MIA game. But it's probably less likely that the halftime show will be broadcast there.

Jane, google counts also change from day to day. Sometimes on the first day or so of something they are quite high and then I think they weed out duplicates and things that don't belong there. On the same search from day to day I get different results quote often.

I am sorry if I misled you.

derwill

It's very hard for people to admit they've made a mistake, especially when their original decision was fueled by a lot of gooey feel-good emotion in the first place. What Clinton did when he said no president, not even himself, could've fixed the financial mess, was that he relieved a lot of voters of those uncomfortable doubts that they'd been feeling about Obama and their vote four years ago--that they were chumps, fools. Clinton told them they weren't fools, and they--being human--want to believe that. But underneath, the doubts are still there because reality is staring them in face everyday. They aren't better off than they were four years ago, and they know it. And there is the very real fear that the next four years are going to be even worse. What Romney can do with ads and in the debates is to bring those doubts and fears back to the surface again. Their is a general sense of fear and unease in this country right now, roiling beneath the surface. Even if the voers don't understand exactly why things have gone awry, they sense on a very visceral level that the we are on the verge of a disaster from which we might not recover for generations. Romney needs to tap into that fear--he needs to make people believe that a vote for Obama is a vote for a future full of penury and misery for themselves and their children.

He needs the equivalent of Reagan's bear commercial.

Danube of Thought

Senator Blutarsky:

"In the past 100 years, 630,000 Americans were killed in foreign wars. So what's the body count? Republicans: 30,000. Democrats: 600,000."

Danube of Thought

Go ahead, CH--tell me you're not watching RG3.

derwill

I don't think Romney would do this, but perhaps it could be done on a grass roots level like Empty Chair Day . . .

Tweet and put up flyers on empty chairs and yard signs and bumper stickers etc, of that iconic Great Depression photo of the migrant woman with her children, along with the caption: THIS IS YOUR FUTURE IF YOU VOTE FOR OBAMA.

Or something like that . . . Something to tap into the doubts and fear.

Clarice

From Drudge:


POLL: O 49% R 45%...
FLASHBACK: CARTER +4 OVER REAGAN IN SEPT 1980 [+8 IN OCT]...
FLASHBACK: DUKAKIS +17 OVER BUSH AFTER DNC 1988...

Derwill, I think that one's too complicated. These things come up with the right opportunity. It'll come again. I'm sure of it.

Jim Eagle

If CH isn't I the sure hell are watching. Finally, Doofus Dan and Mighty Mite Shank-a-Hand made a good decision and RGIII is showing what a great leader and QB looks like in Washington. Another product of a strong military family values.

Posted by: DebinNC | September 09, 2012 at 12:37 PM--

Not sure what kind of context would alter the meaning of what Romney said in the quote supplied.

"Courage" for a Romney win are quite warranted and supported by numerous historic examples.

"Courage" that the Republicans will in any meaningful way cut Leviathan back are not supported by a single historic example since the 1920's.
I hope I'm wrong but I also hope nobody minds if I don't hold my breath.

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

derwill's analysis hits home. In 1980, I was a democrat and my law practice was heavily invested in the success of the Carter administration. I knew deep down Carter was a failure as president, but didn't want to acknowledge it and hoped against all evidence he could turn it around. My mother and mother in law finally convinced me that four more years of Carter would be a disaster. But it wasn't until I got in the voting booth that I was willing to admit it.

Consarn! A person cannot even pick up the most worthless part of the newspaper without having the long reach of progdom grab you by the wrist. In this case, the USA Weekend which I only read as I put it with the trash: An interview A propaganda piece using Richard Gere as the sock puppet let's us know what the world and Gere feel/know about Mitt Romney:

...alpha types and (successful business moguls) share key assets for politicians. "You need that confidence and charisma. And you need believability." Gere feels that the candidate with more corporate experience lacks that. "People in other countries hear Mitt Romney speak, and they thin, 'He's inauthentic.' With Obama, you think, 'Yeah, he's bright, sensitive, has his foibles -- he's very human.' Romney just doesn't project that. It's bizarre that this man leading the charge for this whole other way of looking at government doesn't have that No.1 quality.

His Kool-aid is only half gone, however. Mr. Gere shares his worry (some) about squandering other people's money.

"And I agree with some of that vigilance (of the Republicans), even in terms of entitlements: Make them responsibly. Don't dehumanize people by giving too much."

Don't give too much! That's the ticket. We all know too much cheese is constipating.

Never take an MSM panel's word about what Romney says and means. Listen yourself. On MTP today their panel was Chuck Todd, EJ Dionne, Mayor Castro who gave the DNC keynote, Peggy Noonan who seems like an airhead and certainly is no person to present the Republican point of view, and the only credible one there, Bill Bennett. Talk about a loaded deck!

Porchlight

Interesting tidbit about the famous Migrant Mother photo. If you look down in the lower RH corner you will see a ghost image of a thumb. That is actually the mother's thumb, and in the original shot it was large, white and blurry. Lange retouched it so the thumb faded to gray, so as not to interfere with the otherwise near-perfect composition.

In a similar manner, Walker Evans took photos of sharecropper shacks for Let Us Now Praise Famous Men and made actual white bedspreads look darkly stained in the final photos.

Never believe that "documentary" photographers aren't subject to editorial temptation, both in the way they set up shots and the way they alter the final output. They are artists, after all.

Captain Hate

A fellow moron (with whom I don't usually agree) @ AoS had this to say about Wiegel yesterday:

BTW, the story with Weigel (who I know personally) is that he has veered super-liberal because he detected early on that it was his path to success in Washington, DC. He fell in with the so-called "Juicebox Mafia" -- the young, hard-left blogger-commentariat types like Ezra Klein, Greg Sargeant, etc. -- and used their connections to get each of his post-Reason jobs (he was fired from Reason magazine because he was unwilling to write articles critical of Barack Obama after he won the 2008 election: he wanted to continue focusing on "oh hay aren't those conservatives CRAAAZY?!?" shit).

He has good musical taste, but has become as personally dishonest a young journalist as there exists in mainstream DC. The funny thing is that the people on the professional Left who he's sucked up to for his jobs don't really respect him either -- though the mocke[r]y they level at him (when he's not around, and yes I've drank with these people) is mostly based on his physical shortcomings...these people can be cruel, nasty fucks.

GMax

Here is my theory on polling especially in the afterglow of partisan events like a convention. Polling is based on the statistical assumption of one to one correspondence. That is every registered voter has an equal chance of being selected. For that to be true, pollsters would have to get through to everyone they call. As A(B) notes, the success rate these days is in the single digits ( sometimes its very low single digits ). Some folks dont have a landline, and that may mean more deviation from the one to one correspondence.

Pollsters try to deal with all of this by rebalancing their sample but of course that injects judgement and if the judgement is informed by historical without properly considering changes in circumstance, that will not weight properly.

But obviously with a low single digit rate of response, lots of folks are deliberately screening out the pollster. My theory is right after a convention, partisans are more likely to pick up the phone, so you get what looks like a spike. Its not really, its just looks that way.

I cant prove this, but I firmly believe most folks have already chosen sides and there is not the fluidity that has existed in less polarized elections in the past.

Agent J - To augment your photos, CH had a link at !0:38 a.m. to a Zuckerman article showing how the numbers today are worse than they appear due to "invisible" evidence:

These dependent millions are the invisible counterparts of the soup kitchens and bread lines of the 1930s, invisible because they get their checks in the mail. But it doesn't take away from the fact that millions of people who had good private-sector jobs now have to rely on welfare for life support.

When people start getting nervous about Romney's statement about Obamacare today, tell them this.
Mitt's Plan

On his first day in office, Mitt Romney will issue an executive order that paves the way for the federal government to issue Obamacare waivers to all fifty states. He will then work with Congress to repeal the full legislation as quickly as possible.

In place of Obamacare, Mitt will pursue policies that give each state the power to craft a health care reform plan that is best for its own citizens. The federal government’s role will be to help markets work by creating a level playing field for competition.

Restore State Leadership and Flexibility

Mitt will begin by returning states to their proper place in charge of regulating local insurance markets and caring for the poor, uninsured, and chronically ill. States will have both the incentive and the flexibility to experiment, learn from one another, and craft the approaches best suited to their own citizens.

Block grant Medicaid and other payments to states
Limit federal standards and requirements on both private insurance and Medicaid coverage
Ensure flexibility to help the uninsured, including public-private partnerships, exchanges, and subsidies
Ensure flexibility to help the chronically ill, including high-risk pools, reinsurance, and risk adjustment
Offer innovation grants to explore non-litigation alternatives to dispute resolution

Eliana, I reached out to the Romney campaign for clarification about Mitt Romney’s remarks this morning about liking some parts of Obamacare. An aide pointed out that Romney first said on Meet the Press that “I say we are going to replace Obamacare. And I am replacing it with my own plan.”

In reference to how Romney would deal with those with pre-existing conditions and young adults who want to remain on their parents’ plans, a Romney aide responded that there had been no change in Romney’s position and that “in a competitive environment, the marketplace will make available plans that include coverage for what there is demand for. He was not proposing a federal mandate to require insurance plans to offer those particular features.”

...but then released ANOTHER BC in 2011. It's not like he did THAT.
How hard was it to get the long form BC? After mocking Americans that were asking questions for 3 years, he finally releases it? How could that not have bothered "reporters" in the MFM? Why even play a game with it?

Even the misinformation when I read old articles (to check the dates) makes me mad all over again.

"To receive the long-form document, the president personally sent a request to the Hawaii Department of Health. White House counsel Robert F. Bauer traveled to the state to retrieve it.

The state of Hawaii has faced a regular barrage of requests for information about Obama’s birth, but privacy rules barred them from releasing the full birth certificate. The White House said the state granted this exception “in part because of the tremendous volume of requests they had been getting.”"

Really? The twins have copies of their long form BCs...all Obama had to do was request it. What took him so long? Why? That in itself should be a story.

I'd like to apologize for copying and pasting the last two graphs and spoiling the whole article before you click. But I won't. That's just how I roll.

Barack Obama is one of those people who are often wrong but never in doubt. When he burst upon the national political scene as a presidential candidate in 2008, even some conservatives were impressed by his confidence.

But confident ignorance is one of the most dangerous qualities in a leader of a nation. If he has the rhetorical skills to inspire others to have the same confidence in him, then you have the ingredients for national disaster.
