Romney is polling now better than every victorious challenger to the Presidency since 1968. Early voting in Ohio is going 52 Romney to 47 Obama. The Demoines Register, a very liberal rag, has endorsed a Republican for the first time in 40 years — yeah they even went for Carter and Mondale over Reagan. In fact, all four newspapers of record in Iowa have endorsed Romney and only one of them is a conservative-leaning rag. People keep saying it is going to be a close race but I don’t believe it. I put my faith in solidly collected and analyzed statistics (in some cases needing to be re-analyzed to account for the skew the original collectors built in). No, I don’t think it is going to end up being close.
