# Here’s THE math behind the 2012 presidential race

After all the speeches and campaign ads and debates, politics comes down to cold hard numbers. It always has; it always will.

In fact, when you get right down to it, only one number really counts, and every politician and political strategist knows it: 50 percent of those who turn out, plus one more vote to put you over the top. That’s the goal;, that’s the Holy Grail; that’s the number that your entire campaign strategy is designed to achieve because it guarantees election.

OK, in that one instance, getting the most votes earns you a divorce and an ownership stake in a cable channel that no one’s ever watched. But that’s because the presidency is different. To become leader of the free world, a candidate needs a minimum of 270 votes in the electoral college. Failing that, five votes on the U.S. Supreme Court will do.

Today, with the 2012 presidential campaign at full throttle, it seems as though every political scientist in the country hoping to get on Fox or CNN (which is every political scientist in the country) is out there touting his or her own computerized, highly sophisticated predictive model for how this election will turn out.

While others may have math, I have THE math, in the form of my own statistical model. It has been carefully calibrated over the years to the point that after the fact, it has accurately predicted the outcome of every presidential race dating back to Grover Cleveland. In the interest of transparency, I’m about to let you in on the secret details of how it works:

In my model, as in most such models, we start with the basics: The number of women to whom the GOP candidate’s grandfather was married at any one time, which in this case would be (4). You multiply that by the number of extramarital affairs conducted over a lifetime by the spouse of the current secretary of state (237). (CAUTION: This number could shift at any moment.)

You then add the number of emails sent in the past four years depicting the Democratic nominee with a bone through his nose, which would be 457,283. You divide that by the total number of beers and cigarettes tried by the GOP nominee in his lifetime (2), divided again by the total number of beers and cigarettes consumed by the Democrat (58,399).

You multiply that by the square root of the number of hair follicles transplanted into the Democratic VP (√6,798=83.53) divided by the best marathon time fraudulently claimed by the Republican VP nominee (2.55).

Subtract the percentage of Americans gratuitously insulted by the GOP nominee (47), add the number of times in a best-two-out-of-three match that the First Lady would beat you arm-wrestling (3), and then also add the number of dog-lover votes — in units of tens of thousands — lost by the Republican for transporting an aptly named Irish setter (Seamus) on the station-wagon roof (236.5).

Finally, you add the number of percentage points that all polls but Rasmussen are skewed in favor of Democrats (10). Voila!

You now have the mortal-lock number of electoral college votes that the Democratic nominee will win in any given year.

There is no evidence left at embassy..our classified information is gone and the place is in shambles..the purpose is to clarify who had a role and how deep it goes and whether the government there really got whoever is responsible…

Regarding spending 40% more than we take in..I argue it is by far our most significant security risk. we are already overdependent on debt to finance these annual deficits..it won’t take much at all for our interest costs to rise beyond 50% of our annual take..rendering us at the mercy of other countries in a large sense to have cash to continue to dictate our security policy…of course the other key issue is the money supply and our continued strategy to print money..we already have more than double the currency in circulation than 10 years ago…only a matter of time if we continue this tactic, our interests cost will increase…

It’s a risk that has a easy remedy. We simply need to pay for more ourselves. You know, raise more revenue domestically. As long as we are the reserve currency of the world, we are safe. What’s making things unsafe are the jackasses in DC who would much rather destroy everything in their paths just to keep their offices. It’s not our borrowing that’s the problem at all.

http://detroit.cbslocal.com/2012/09/26/tea-party-politician-in-fight-for-job-for-keeping-budget-vow/

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — Shortly after newly elected Rep. Dan Benishek arrived in Washington, staffers raised a banner in his Capitol Hill suite that proclaimed: “If you are here to ask for more money, you’re in the wrong office!”

The message was fitting for a tea party favorite who had railed against federal spending and a “nanny-state mentality” during the 2010 campaign that led to a Republican takeover of the House. But it was something new for his constituents in northern Michigan, a largely rural area where a spirit of self-reliance coexists with the reality that government — popular or not — is a crucial economic player.

So, he rides the Tea Party Express to DC vowing to cut federal spending, and the people vote for him to do that. Now, the people realized that cutting federal spending meant getting less money at home. Ooops!!! Now, the locals are mad because he didn’t bring home the bacon.

I think this is the part where the rhetorical cold front meets with the reality warm front and all kinds of severe weather breaks out. Funny how people are against doing something until it affects them personally.

So Jay believes Obama will get 331.014 electoral college votes.

Putting aside the decimals, jay’s model says he will win most swing states

In fact, unless he believes Romney loses republican leaning Missouri (which can be combined with a loss in Iowa or Nevada to get 331), jay’s model says Obama will win the swing states except for Iowa, Nevada, and New Hampshire.

Given Obama’s current lead in Iowa and Nevada (up by 4%), I would say there are problems with Jay’s model

Morning all! I see Aquagirl is in rare form this a.m. and I’m glad Jay took a side trip into the outer limits with the rest of us. Sometimes you gotta laugh in order to not go insane.

Every day that it gets closer and closer to the actual election, people are getting crazier and crazier, (especially the cons — if that’s possible). For instance:

Man on Radio this a.m. — “I’m not voting” DJ- “Why?” Man – “Because Obama likes Gays and gays are sinning against God.” DJ – “So that means you’re gonna vote for Mitt?” Man – “Hell naw! Mitt is a mormon! That ain’t even no real religion man!” DJ – “Huh?” Man – “Look, if I ain’t gonna vote for Obama, a black man like me ’cause he likes gays, I DEFINITELY ain’t gonna vote for a white man who likes lizards!!!” DJ – “Huh?” Man – “You heard me.”

Random thoughts (in no particular order):

Right now I’m despondent because the REAL referees have decided to take the offer the NFL made — I was hoping for a longer hold out……say about 6 -7 more weeks………..long enough for Miami to “win” a few and be able to vie for a playoff spot. Oh well.

Saw a “Bama” fan the other day riding around in a yellow car — I thought to myself, “A Yellow Bammer — how appropriate.”

Wednesday was a very rough day for me, found out that Brittany Griner got drafted into some suck azz team instead of coming to Atlanta to play with the Dreams. With Griner and Angel, the dreams would’ve been unstoppable.

I’ve been searching the internet trying to find a pig farm that has “organically fed pigs”, (meaning no mob boss, hitman, or drug dealer, has tried to loose a couple of people via chopping them up and feeding them to the pigs); and so far haven’t found any near here.

If i do, i’m gonna order that the whole pig be turned into Bacon. No hamhocks, (bacon hocks only), no hog maws, (bacon maws only), and no snouts, (baconouts only); just bacon.

Gotta be prepared for the upcoming bacon apocalypse.

The Republican National Committee has abruptly cut ties to a consulting firm hired for get-out-the-vote efforts in seven presidential election swing states after Florida prosecutors launched an investigation into possible fraud in voter registration forms.

Working through state parties, the RNC has sent more than \$3.1 million this year to Strategic Allied Consulting, a company formed in June by Nathan Sproul, an Arizona voting consultant. Sproul has operated other firms that have been accused in past elections of improprieties designed to help Republican candidates, including dumping registration forms filled out by Democrats, but none of those allegations led to any criminal charges.

When are you liberals going to listen to the “secret” tape of Mitt Romney and then report on what he really said?

He DID NOT SAY he doesn’t care about 47% of the people in America. He said that 47% of American people either pay no income tax, so they don’t care if he lowers taxes because they pay none, or that they are so dependent on government programs for assistance that they won’t vote for anyone who might reduce, or eliminate, the programs that they are so dependent on.

He said that those 47% of Americans are NOT GOING TO VOTE FOR HIM no matter what he says or what policies he would implement if elected.

Therefore, it isn’t his job to worry about those 47% because it would be a waste of his time and resources to try to convince them to vote for him.

Romney reminds people of a boss they had/have that makes them want to quit their job. He reminds them of the boss that would make you come in on the weekend to prepare a report that could have waited until Monday. He’s the kind of boss that would expect you to work late at night then ding you for coming in a little later in the morning. He’s the kind of boss that would deny you a raise then tell you how lucky you are to have a job. That’s how Romney connects with the voters.

What part of “when we come down to Virginia-Highlands, etc.” didn’t you get???

We will give you a pass seeing that the weekend is here.

I had so much vandalism on my car and home last election season we have developed a booby trap/low tech security system this year.

A few batteries, some lights and sounds, a bit of a shock and a spray nozzle…

Can’t wait for it to be sprung…..

By mid-October Romney is going to start showing up late to his rallies, unshaven, wearing a robe and smoking a cigarette because why bother?

Heh, heh, heh.

Yes, I did read the news this morning and I noted the good news that might help you get up off of the couch and finally get a job, Joe.

100 new jobs coming to Atlanta…

Of course you know that even the NYT concluded that Bush won the 2000 election.. Had the court not acted (as it should have) democrat election officials would still be manhandling and massaging blank ballots trying to figure out how to prove the intent of non-existent voters. Now that Nakoula has been designated scapegoat of the month it appears more and more likely that the sum of all math calculations is some rough beast slouching toward Bethlehem..

Wow! Thanks Bro!! this is great — especially since they come to Atlanta (Piedmont Park it seems) weekly!

You know Bro, you’re o.k. for a “Bammer”!

PS: I hope that wasn’t you in that yella car. If it was, I just wanted you to know, that yellow looks very good on you, (except for those mouse ears attached to the roof — but I won’t mention that….)

When are we going to get rid of that electoral college crap? It makes people in states that are not close feel like their vote doesn’t count.

Nah, you’re not gonna see me driving a yellow car, even though Alabama is the Yellowhammer State. A man has his limits. I have links to all kinds of farms and stuff. Having my daughter made me step back and really take a look at what I was eating. My goal is to eventually get to the point of getting rid of most pre-packaged and pre-prepared foods altogether. I think it’s healthier to do things with fresh ingredients, but right now it’s just more expensive to do so.

A couple of motion-sensitive floodlights, strategically positioned near your car, will deny the miscreants the cover of darkness. You can get solar ones, too, which simplify installation greatly.

Yes, the gray lady did make that stand. It may be the only time
a conservative would link to them.

They however may still be wrong.

You know, regulars stooping to the old ‘you’re unemployed’ desperation insult — especially when you already know I have a job — well, that’s just pathetic, USMC.

Insert quarter, try again. (pointing, laughing)

Jay, I actually did the math. You forgot to subtract the age of the current vice president’s wife (61). That crucial step makes the answer 270.

Any actual difference after December 17 would be due to late changes in the number of affairs by the secretary of state’s husband or the number of angry dog lovers, or perhaps to faithless electors.

Elections are Constitutionally a state matter. For the federal government to intervene in a state matter — well, it’s amazing that cons didn’t lose their collective minds over it. But clearly, some government overreach is just dandy with y’all.

Fred – re your ban by Schultz. It was proabably due to the fact his mother passed about the time of your remark. He had written a column about her and evidently she was active in the French Resistance or some other group that the resisted the Germans in WW II. Quite the brave lady.
