Flipping on NPR this morning I heard, of all people, Rush Limbaugh talking about gearing upfor a republican loss. Further commentary came from California Republican legislature rep Jim Brulte who said he is basically throwing in the towel. As an Obama supporter I don’t have any problem with this happening, however, I’d imagine republican supporters being quite discouraged. Are we [Gov’t] gearing up for a republican fall ahead of time to lessen the impact of the [supposed] inevitable? Or are they trying to rally support from the GOP late in the game? I was looking at polling numbers from this same time in 2004, and Bush and Kerry were basically neck and neck. An analysis of the exit polling shows major discrepancies in pre-election polling. However the descrepancies were attributed to margin of error among other things. Bush basically won by the margin of error shown in the pre-election polling. Obama is polling ahead of the margin of error in many polls and his lead is only continuing to widenin battleground states.
I suppose this is what the republicans are talking about. What do you think?
