Dewey wins!

By Tom Quiner

The polls say Obama will win a close election.

Bookmakers say Obama will win.

The highly regarded Nate Silver of the New York Times says Obama has a 93% chance of winning.

Why vote? And yet it ain’t over until the fat lady votes, to steal a phrase.

I went to the Romney rally in Des Moines on Sunday. It was mobbed. The crowd was electric.

Peggy Noonan characterized the dramatic Romney turnaround this way: a few months ago, people were voting against Obama. Now they’re voting FOR Romney.

Romney has all the momentum. Obama is hanging on for dear life.

In 1948, the media famously called Thomas Dewey the winner of the election. They were wrong, of course.

Let us hope they jumped the gun once again.

    Yeah, but the Redskins lost this weekend, and in the past TWENTY presidential elections, when the Redskins win, the incumbent party wins, and when the Redskins lost, the challenger wins. This has been true 95% of the time, only exception being 2004. So Romney will win….just saying. Google the Redskin rule….
