  1. But how do you feel about those odd cultural portents that point to an Obama win? Things like World Series winner, Redskins game, Scholastic Kids vote, In-Trade, Halloween mask sales, Cookie bake off winner, 7-11 coffee cup sales, etc.? Some of those things have been sadly accurate. sigh.
    And then there’s Ohio. Not a portent, but a must win. And besides all the portents, do hope the Panthers win anyway!

  2. My daughter’s best friend’s parents are voting for a republican for the first time on Tuesday. They have both been life long democrats. they have been hit hard in this economy and have pretty much rejected Obama and his policies.

    I also know several Obama 2008 voters who are voting Romney, but they weren’t particularly “Never voted for a republican” type voters.

    I can say to date I don’t know a single person who voted for McCain in 2008 who is changing their vote to Obama (not saying there aren’t any just saying I haven’t met one).

  3. Just me: you haven’t met one BECAUSE THEY DON’T EXIST.

  4. Jack: You mention the World Series winner, but also recall that the last time the Giants won the World Series was in 2010, and that was not exactly a banner year for Democrats. :-)

    As far as your other points, there was a great xkcd comic the other day which detailed all the “portents” disproved by all of the previous elections. I don’t have the link handy at the moment, though, unfortunately.
