Nate Silver updates: PBO – 84.4% with 306.5 EV. mittbot down to 15.6%. Make it wider. GOTV. #ObamaBiden2012. fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytimes.com— (@amk4obama) November 04, 2012
come to papa, nate.
I just posted that on the last thread – never see the new ones! Nate has Montana in his group of competitive states – has it always been there? Last poll on Oct 16 had Romney up 10 but the senate is very close
He hasn’t updated the individual states map for a long time, afaik.
He has a tweet up that a montana poll was entered with the names reversed – that might be why it changed
Sorry, we entered a Montana poll with the candidates' names reversed. Re-running forecast.— Nate Silver (@fivethirtyeight) November 04, 2012
My tweet copy used to work – grrrr
So now it does???
sounds like something i too have said many times: come to papa
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAH….that is so weirdly delightfully creepy.
nate had to re-run and has a further update. heh.
Just saw it and tweeted it and posted it.
I am going to be up all day.
and mama, nate.
HI JOB. Nice!!!!!!
Mornin’! Two days until VICTORY! Let’s GOTV.
Has everyone voted that can?
I voted here in IL this past week. The line was long but folks were in great humor. IL will represent for Pres. Obama…
If you find some change in your Obama jars, just hop on over to my FR page and help a little old lady out. We are open for business (((((((( Love you all))))))))) Do you all know how much you have inspired me this election season. I thought that I worked hard the first time around, but you beautiful young ones have a grandmom forever now. Thank you so much for allowing me to be here. You make my day each day. I am so grateful.HZ
We’re grateful to you, HZ, and I look forward to your uplifting comments. They’re so inspirational, like breaths of fresh air.
Thank you so much majir. You are very generous and very kind. I am so grateful to be here. HZ
Wow, HZ. Congrats on crossing the 3 K mark.
Hi amk. You were the one who gave me the go for it after I met my first goal of 250.00, remember. I will always remember that. It brings a smile to me heart knowing that you had faith in my to hang in there.
(((((( Lots of admiration for you and your comments that keeps me thinking as well as smiling.))))))))HZ I have two more goals to reach: Help get POB re-elected and being first on TOD. I will be greatly satisfied.
I am happy that you have met all your revised FR goals, thanks to generous obots.
“being first on TOD.” Now, that will happen once you post directly instead of replying to someone.
You inspired us too HZ. I remember when you so bravely setup your donation page and now you are going out and volunteering, bringing it home for another four years of President Obama. Thank you!
I voted here in GA on October 23, and my daughter returned to GA to vote on the 27th.
Jeff, it is my first time voting because I became an American citizen in May 2009 (former Canadian) Since I live in a very blue state (CA), I am voting on Nov 6th.

BREAKING NEWS: The “Big Dog” is holding a rally in Philly on Monday!
Time to wrap this thing up, Alycee, sign it, seal it, and deliver it = 4 more years 4 PBO.
Love it. Don’t leave the rubber on the road. Or is it leave the rubber on the road. I never could get it right.
It’s “leave the rubber on the road” because you streak away in your car so fast that your tires leave their rubber on the road.
Rumor has it that Romney has left the pool press on the Des Moines tarmac.
He’s not even trying anymore.
I hope he and Ann are demoralized. I want them to be demoralized. They may have thought it was “their turn,” but they didn’t check with us, the American people, FIRST.
^^^ THIS X 1,000,000 !

Anne seemed a bit stressed today. They’re already jumping on the Obama prop remark. Desparation settles in. LOL…
Best for them to entertain themselves with these shiny things, and not wreak any more havoc on the international front.
Theo67, and joyfulmeme, Ms. Ann did seem as though she was in pain(I hope not) and very stressed out. Even Willard looked the same. But she did get to say, as she was introducing Willard,”it’s our time.” Then she said, “The next president”; sadly they have not realized that mean and lying spirits that wreck others lives are destructive.
There was no million dollar smiles like our wonderful POTUS and introduction like Prs. Bill Clinton. Not there. Remember that verse? “Pride comes before the fall.”
Listening to the radio progressive station yesterday I heard that another closed door fundraiser found Romney saying the opposite to his funders than Ann had been saying on the trail and in interviews. She has repeatedly said she was reluctant to have Mitt run for the Presidency and he said she was emphatic that he run as she knew their country needed him. He suggested it was her idea not his own. It is sad when something that really doesn’t matter is not a hard fact but malliable to what they think the audience wants to hear.
Good nite folks, until tomorrow.
How am I even going to sleep until Tuesday. Damn.
Little cat naps throughout the day….eat healthy food….red wine. And lots of PMA
You assume I can take cat naps????
Have you heard of a thing called bombay sapphire + tonic water + lime wedge ? I hear, though I cannot personally vouch for, is a good palliative.
I HAVE!!! Too good to wash a bug down with though:)
Don’t knock it until you tried it.
Hi Desertflower. So good to see you. I know that you have been very busy, but wanted to say hello. Love you and thanks for all that you do, DF. Be good to yourself. I think we all are tired and elated as we wait, work and be joyful. I will be so glad for Tues. evening.HZ
Sweet, HZ:) how are you, love? I have been busy, but no more than all of the wonderful TOD’ers here that are all working triple overtime to get this done for President Obama! I figure that if HE can run himself ragged, so can I! No regrets, no going backward. Not now, not ever. I really love that idea of bringing champagne to OFA……I just happen to have 2 bottles in the fridge:) I love you back:) You are so special to all of us here. I hope you know that.
Protein with your G/T!
egg.sack.lee. Also. Too. Crunchy.
Heeeeee, not going to beat me. I’m beside myself. Deep inside I know we’re winning, but man, the anxiety…
BWD, can you have a glass of red? I know we all are on edge, but seeing POB speaking and smiling with the huge crowds give me soooooooooooooooooooooooo much energy. Try some hot tea sipping slowly and pamper yourself with nice PJs and lying in the middle of the bed with soft music and maybe a video of POB. We are almost there.HZ
Thank you, sweetie. You’re such a kind soul. How are you doing?
You’ve perfected your “innocent face”, I see. *eyebrow raised*
You know exactly what I’m talking about… *eyebrow STILL raised*
Enjoy every single second from now until we all celebrate victory with President Obama and his family on 6 Nov and then curl into bed and sleep until you awaken to the future we will all create, TOGETHER.
That’s what I’m going to do. These are the most important moments of our entire lives.
And, if anyone happens to doze for a few hours, not to worry, you will have folk – ALL OVER THE WORLD – awake and rooting for President Obama who’ll happily update you on anything you missed.
Dear, dear friends – at some point in your life, perhaps many points, you’ve wondered ‘what would it have been like to have been alive THEN’ – well, guess what YOU ARE ALIVE NOW, and in the history of the great American experiment in democracy you are ALIVE at a moment no less historic than that day in Sept 1774 when the 1st Continental Congress convened in Carpenter’s Hall, no less monumental than the day that President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, no less essential to America and humanity than that 8 Nov 1932 day that FDR was elected to his initial term.
This is IT, folks.
What happens on 6 Nov 2012, BECAUSE OF EACH OF YOU, determines the fate of America and humanity. No Joke. No Hyperbole.
Cherish every one of these moments. Burn them into your being. You are among the most fortunate humans to have ever lived.
Don't sleep America. Cherish every single moment from now until VICTORY for OBAMA & humanity on 6 Nov bit.ly/RBzSXp This is HISTORY.— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) November 04, 2012

Poor Nate. I bet he doesn’t sleep either
It’s going to be 347 for PBO! Mark my word on this! I can’t be more sure.
Why are we still up?
Saturday night. BWD made us.
Yup. I too blame bwd. This whole crazy thing was started by her.
Heee. In that case, you may not sleep until Tuesday.
I think we call it adrenaline. Good shit.
I blame Barack Obama. Everything is Obama’s fault.
Of course. That kenyan muslin kummunist soshalist phascist kapitalist is the root of all our problems.
I am more confident than I have ever been that the good guys (this includes all of us who love justice and equality) will win this one. A stellar leader and candidate, hard-working, fired up volunteers, people who will not be denied, the goodwill of most of the world, and prayers lifted up to the heavens, and a sense of destiny have all combined to bring us to this moment. Upward and onward, forward until the last polling place closes on Nov. 6!
AMK, you overlooked his other titles; homosexualist and indonesian.
we’re all gonna be running on fumes by Tuesday night.
we ‘re getting a new roof on Wednesday. I almost took my husband’s head off when he first scheduled it for Tuesday. Disconnect the satellite & be without tv on election day?! Was he insane?!
Damn right! What was he THINKING!! That said, Wed will be tough, too….they’ll be there early and you will have practically just gone to sleep:)
Bless Hubby’s heart – I told him ‘any day but Election Day’. He was looking at October and not November on the calendar. I went ballistic. He called the scheduler who is Korean, still giving the guy the wrong date. I wanted to strangle him until I grabbed the phone.l
Hey, I’m nervous enough to not have TV the day after the election but it’s November, it’s Chicago, we have a hole in our roof and it needs to be fixed. Creaky broadband will have to get me through Wednesday and Thursday.

FL early votes updated
Total votes cast 3,914,379 (46.3% of 2008 total)
My 2 point prediction is still holding.
You know what was the status at the end of early voting in 2008?
Ben Lablot tweeted a few days back that while it took us 5 days in 2008 to overcome rethugs early advantage, this time we did it in only 2 days. Also, many tweets jovie posted here stated that we are outdoing rethugs even in red counties. You can see those tweets in earlier threads.
Cool, thanks. I shall now try to get some sleep. Night.

Ok, time for my lunch and siesta. ciao.
AMK, It’s going to be 347, I have no doubt.
I said over a week ago, PBO is taking all of the swing states, and also holding the states he won in 2008, that puts him at 347. And maybe more.
I don’t think I’m going to get much sleep between now and Tuesday.
Sunny skies and long lines greeted voters across Tampa Bay on the last day of early voting Saturday as elections officials reported few serious problems with the heavy turnout.
Hillsborough and Pasco counties both reported record-setting numbers for the eight days of early voting, with Pasco setting a single-day record Saturday with about 10,000 early voters and Hillsborough setting a single-day record of 28,728.
Hillsborough reported a total of 166,937 early votes, exceeding the previous record of 146,558 set in 2008. The county also had 143,829 absentee ballots submitted as of Saturday, making for a turnout of 41 percent.
“There is a ton of enthusiasm for this election,” said Hillsborough election spokesman Travis Abercrombie, noting that the greater numbers were also the result of more early voting locations and more registered voters.
There were 60,648 total early votes in Pasco along with 54,706 absentee ballots cast, putting turnout at 37 percent so far.
Pinellas County fell short of breaking its 2008 early vote record, but total pre-election turnout was higher than ever, officials said, at close to 40 percent with absentee ballots factored in. The county saw a total of 39,562 early votes and 209,292 absentee ballots submitted.
Hernando County, which had the fewest early voting hours of any county in the state, reported a total of 12,728 early votes and 24,434 absentee ballots returned, making for about 30 percent turnout.
Fall behind with your clocks, people…
Saw on the last Thread that the President will be in Hollywood FL. Most of the district he will be in is Debbie Wasserman Schultz district. Some is Allen West. Yes, lines were redrawn so I am not sure if Allens district is as long and narrow as it used to be. Patrick Murphy is such a good choice for this area. I hope it works. Ron Klein was the rep before West was. I was redistricted and now lost Ted Deutch and am in the New F 22. Lois Frankel is running against a Tea Party candidate. The polls are close but I hope she wins. She used to be the mayor of Palm Beach Florida. She was the six time mayor and left with a very high 60% approval rating.

This is strange- Charlie cook said that in 15 Democratic House races, the democrats are behind and likely to lose those Seats.
He then said, that it means we would only gain 5 House Seats, but definitely hold the Senate.
Most peeps who are voting for PBO are voting the straight DEM ticket. However, I did talk to this AA female GOP in NV who voted PBO and then hit the lever for Heller. We are in different congressional districts so I don’t know who she voted for. Everyone needs to tell folks to vote the straight DEM ticket. It is critical.
Don’t let the thugs distract you, jovie.
That’s right. These pundits doing their part to suppress the already high early vote turnout by constantly low-balling the DEMS (or Obama’s chances) and making things seem worse than they are.
This is a VERY moving tribute from a mother of a biracial son, who wrote a letter to the Pres and sent him an amazing photograph (HuffnPuff alert)
// …He was 5-years-old at the time you were elected president. And although I realize you were in the midst of pursing your dreams, you inadvertently simultaneously changed my son’s life. Quite frankly, I believe you changed the lives of sons across the world. This, Mr. President, is no small thing. My son could see himself in you, the leader of our country, something no child of color had been able to do in America prior to your presidency. He was at an age when he had just become aware that my skin did not look like his. You gave my son in this moment something I could not.,,”
“…My son could see himself in you…”
So true, my grandson was 6 and was visiting me during the PA primary; his whole spring break consisted of GOTV instead of or normal “Auntie Mame” type adventures. PBO absolutely enthralled and inspired him. Back then he told me “Obac Barama” is just like me — he has big ears like me, he’s smart like me, he’s left handed like me, he’s a zebra like me.” Had to ask where he got “zebra” from — Jefferson’s re-runs…
“or” = “our”
On Election Day, I get to hold a big 5 foot Forward sign, at the polls.
I wonder if that actually helps?
Good morning, need to tidy up before opening the staging location. Having the staging in my home is a blessing and a curse! LOL! Keep up the good fight! Will read you later.

Excellent zizi – and thanks for sharing this very inspiring report with us. Tipped and Rec’d
I had a similar experience canvassing —–in a deep red country club community. Every home was acres away from the next, up and down hill, and the driveways were another block uphill. Then when I would get to the door, the homeowner would immediately shake their head no and close the door when they saw the Obama signs/literature. Once when I just shouted “Nice throw!” to a couple of young boys tossing a football in their yard, the dad came out and yelled to “Stay away from my kids!” Another guy in a $100,000 convertible told us to get out of the neighborhood, we weren’t welcome there. I guess the couple of friendlies we were able to locate in that hostile territory made it worthwhile, but it was tough duty. The willful ignorance and open hostility was on full display.
So thanks for persevering. Efforts much appreciated.
Wow. Do you mind my asking what state you’re in, not that it matters because “they” are everywhere!
Great job Zizi and saluting your willingness to do the hard work even in hostile environments. It is the volunteers canvassing, phone banking, donating, blogging, tweeting truths and helping however who will “own” a piece of the PBO re-election victory.
Well done, zizi. I had that experience during the mid-terms when I was sent into a small but important enclave in Pennsy. All these big, handsome homes of well-to-do folk with Corbit signs. I thought of the folks only blocks away who don’t fare as well economically, and realized how damn selfish rethugs are. And they think they will get into Heaven?
Failed to mention I did this absolutely ALONE ! Not a pleasant experience
Impressive, zizi! Thank you for your hard work!

I teach quilting. I had a student who started quilting through my classes, about 6 years ago. She’s an artist, a set designer and she teaches art and theater at a Chicago charter school.
She makes what we call ‘art’ quilts and has won some awards (needless to say, I’m proud as hell of her). She made an art quilt of PBO in 2008 that has won some awards and has been on tour with various quilt shows, etc.
A group in England is doing an exhibit of PBO-related quilts and went out of their way to find her to exhibit her particular quilt.
So proud I could bust.
That’s awesome 57. Hope she remembers her “beginnings!”
She’s a great girl, we’re good friends. I don’t have her artistic talent and it’s been a joy to see her apply those skills to meaningful, artistic messages.
57F: Great stuff, for your former student and you! /wish there was a ‘pride’ smilie/
That’s so great! You MUST feel like a proud mama, and rightfully so:) Any chance you have a pic to share? Love to see that quilt….
Yes. I’ll find a picture. can I post a picture to TOD?
This is kinda odd. Sam Wang at PEC has updated the PBO’s chances to 98.2% (from 98% – see my tweet above) and yet scaled down the EV’s from 323 to 319. What gives ?
I have posted this question at his site too. Waiting to hear from him.
There was a little cooling in some of the polls yesterday and Sam Wang works with raw data only. Frankly, I expected a tick down with 538 but he includes other factors in his model.
The ads have been relentless this past week all over swing states and vulnerable districts. Fighting these constant, relentless mountains of lies has been daunting. It’s horrific here.
I can understand that if his probability went down and not up. It seems counter intuitive.
Unless there was a mathematical error to begin with in his original estimate? That’s the only way these numbers could be changed in seemingly opposite directions (if the EV estimate was erroneously high to begin with).
Nevertheless, I’m thinking that all of these models, polls etc are still underestimating the ground game.
Yeah, that’s a head scratcher.
I think he has CO in the neutral zone. Otherwise he’s pretty much in the same mode about electoral victory for Obama.
Did DimMitt make any plea to his obscenely rich ilk to help out with Sandy? at all? Ever? He asked working people to find dollars in their sofas to donate. How is it that no one in that hapless campaign thought to collect the obscenely wealthy and do what these jackasses say they will do when they destroy government’s ability to respond to disasters?
Final NBC/WSJ poll – among “Likely voters.” I’m curious to see what the corresponding figure for Registered voters are. I bet PBO is leading by more than 3.
// Obama gets support from 48 percent of likely voters, while Romney gets 47 percent. In the NBC/WSJ poll released two weeks ago, the two candidates were deadlocked at 47 percent each. While both Obama and Romney are running virtually even in this national poll, a majority of surveys from the battleground states – especially in the crucial battlegrounds of Iowa, Ohio and Wisconsin – show the president with a slight advantage. The NBC/WSJ poll was conducted Nov. 1-3 of 1,475 likely voters (including 443 cell phone-only respondents), and it has a margin of error of plus-minus 2.55 percentage points. //

Good Amk! People are coming in and we’re handing them phone scripts and walking packets as fast as they get there!
At the very same time Mitt vows bipartisanship on the stump, he urges ND voters in new ad to "stop the liberal Reid-Pelosi agenda.”— David Axelrod (@davidaxelrod) November 04, 2012
Romney the bishop-load of the highest form of lying pathology.
Not surprised at all. Typical of the Willard Mitterrand Romney that we all have seen for years.
Happy Sunday, TODobots! I emailed a friend in Florida yesterday to remind her to make sure her family & friends vote (she’s not a citizen yet). Here’s her answer:
Everyone I know here is voting early. It’s easy as pie by mail. [Her husband]’s done already.
………………. We’re just feeling winds here on the gulf side of Florida and cooler than normal temps.
Thanks for keeping vigil with the President. Every bit of spiritual support counts, especially when financial is played out. I think the Women here will tip the scales. If they’re smart. I’d like to think they are. The son of a church member was blown away by meeting the president in a sandwich shop downtown here and said things like: ordinary person, sincere, seems to genuinely care. Spot on. Right?
It sure added to my current euphoria. #GOOBAMABIden
that’s awesome VC! yay!
Isn’t it? It felt good to have our reports here reiterated by a personal friend who lives in Florida.
Good Morning a4A!
This election is critical. I don’t care who you vote for, just make sure you all go out and vote, and make sure it counts: Obama Remix #Two Campaign Video by Chris Nelson http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQq1X2yzNqM&feature=colike. In Certain States like Pennsylvania YOU DON’T NEED ID, you can just come with your Voters Card and exercise your right to vote See you all at the poles on November 6, 2012!!!!!
Well, I DO care who you vote for. Make sure you all go out and re-elect Barack Obama. This country just cannot afford to have Mitt Romney in the White House.
Thanks for the reminder Chris.
hopefruit2, I care too who you vote for. I am going to say it, if you are not voting for President Obama, I don’t care if you don’t vote.
Yes you are right, I would like President Obama, to be back into office myself and that is why I’m supporting him. However, unfortunately there are people in the world who are still on the fence. I know people on this website are for the most part, supporting The President. I just want everybody including the one’s on the fence or should I say the bench warmers, to exercise their right to vote, and not allow anybody to intimidate them. Thank The Creator, that in certain states, like Pennsylvania, we don’t need Voter ID’s. The law has been hold up into contempt for this election cycle. I wish it was the same in all fifty states of our nation, but unfortunately, it’s not. So that’s why it really critical and important that I’ve said what I’ve said. Thank you for your concern and May The Creator Of The Universe Smile Upon You!!!!!!
@hopefruit2 And your welcome by the way. Please forgive me for not saying your welcome in the beginning of the original response, I’ve got a million things to do, to help Our President, Barack Obama. Enjoy the rest of your day, and Much Respects!!!!!!!

Let me clarify. Romney's dumb attack on Obama's innocuous "revenge" quote is R's final, closing expression of contempt for voters— Greg Sargent (@ThePlumLineGS) November 03, 2012
Obama boosts Hirono in Hawaii
By ALEXANDER BURNS | 11/4/12 9:13 AM
President Barack Obama is giving a late boost to a Democratic Senate candidate in his native state, recording a radio ad for his “ally and friend” Rep. Mazie Hirono.
that must be why i got my first piece of slick mail advertising for linda lingle yesterday. maizie is way up in the polls, but clearly lingle still has money to burn. glad our prez gave maizie a boost–her voting record in congress is one of the most liberal, and we’re proud to elect her to the u.s. senate!
