Obama loses in a land slide in 2012 and this is why I feel this way:
If you are a slave to the polls you will notice that this is a very close race and that most polls tend to favor Obama. However, for all the years I have followed elections the polls are very rarely correct, and almost always favor the democrats. Even in more conservative polls such as the Rasmussen Report (the most accurate poll during the 2008 presidential election, I might add) Obama still leads in many swing states. I think all of these polls are inaccurate and Obama is set to lose in a landslide. This is not an opinion but an observation! Every time Barrack Obama has been put on the ballot since 2008 he has lost by big margins and below is some of the evidence.
The first major defeat, was when health care reform was being rammed through the house and senate. Democrats had control of the house and senate and republicans did not stand a prayer of stopping them. Ted Kennedy passed away shortly before the vote and his senate seat was up for grabs leaving the democrats with 59 seats instead of the 60 needed to pass health care (considering they were gonna follow the constitution but as we know now they didn’t). Shortly after Mr. Kennedy’s death a Republican, Scott Brown, won a victory in Massachusetts, which would have prevented health care from going through the senate, stopping them short of the 60 votes needed. Of course the democrats found a way around the constitution and managed to pass the bill, but I don’t think anyone is surprised at that. The polls did not predict Scott Browns victory might I add!
The second major defeat was the 2010 election! Republicans swept almost every race replacing non conservative, establishment Republicans with tea party candidates and defeating the democrats in a land slide defeat. When I say Obama was on the ballot, do you not think for a second that this was a referendum on Obama? I think its pretty clear Americans were upset with Obama and thats what led to strong tea party candidates like Senator Marco Rubio, Governor Nikki Haley, and Senator Allen West. Republicans took control of the house and most governorships, while making a huge dent in the senate. This caused Obama to have to depend on Republican votes to pass things and prevented his, no opposition, hold on the country. This was Obama’s second major defeat that polls did not quite predict! Oops wrong again!
The 3rd major defeat was Wisconsin supporting Governor Scott Walker during the recall election. This is where a lot of my evidence of inaccurate polls coming from. Scott Walker was predicted to lose by most polls in Wisconsin, but ended up winning in a landslide along with his Lt. Governor. This is a huge defeat because it was a union led attempt, which is one of Obama’s biggest voter bases. The unions were upset that Obama saw the defeat coming and completely backed away and abandoned them. This is yet another evidence of an Obama defeat and the inaccuracy of polls. Not to mention it shows Obama has lost Wisconsin! Without Wisconsin (a state that democrats have won for many years now) there is no second Obama term. This is a must win state for the president!
Well now having outlined many reasons I feel that Obama is going to taste a landslide defeat in 2012, I then move to the topic of history. This is a mirror of the Reagan/Carter 1980 election where Carter, having many of the same problems is Obama, lost in a landslide. No president has ever won reelection in history with unemployment over 8% and there is no way that is changing before November, obviously. Even polls done by liberal networks such as ABC and MSNBC, struggle to poll Obama over 50%. If they struggle that much, imagine how reality is! Many big liberal democrats are backing away from the convention and don’t want to be seen anywhere near Obama, especially those up for reelection!
So again, when I say Obama loses in a land slide, the evidence is everywhere! Welcome to the white house President Romney!
