    NC trending red as it should, good news there. Im surprised theres been barely any polling on that state

  4. GF says:

    With redistricting having gone our way, the Democrats could win the House popular vote by 5 and probably still get whacked in terms of seats.

  5. Brandon says:

    High Point University Poll? Really?

  6. Ben Romney says:

    MD why r u so pessemistic about NV and CO???

  7. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    Survey USA has Romney up 21 in CA

  8. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    ill take any poll from NC at this point, shocked no ones barely polled the state

  9. Romney coat tails should help get rid of Tesser too.

    7- Posted that last thread, details here;

    Here is a SUSA poll for CA (Primary and GE). Romney wins 2-1, but everyone’s getting blownout by Zero by the same margin.

    Looking at the crosstabs, the primary numbers seem OK, and while we all know that Zero will win the state handily, the breakdowns have serious problems e.g. Obama winning 41% of Tea Partiers, whites making up only 47% of the vote when they usually comprise up to 60% (even with their share of the population at about 48-49%) and probably most egregiously, having Rs at 27% and Indies at 11% while Dems sit at their 45% registration. That leaves 17% to minor parties, which is simply not going to happen. Field usually shows a registration split of 44-31-18-7 (D/R/I/3rd party), and an active voter participation ranging from D+10 (42-32) down to D+6 (43-37) for an average midterm. Simply put, I’d trust Field’s numbers over SUSA.

  11. GF says:

    Is “Tesser” an amalgam of Kissler and Tester? if so, I think Romney’s coattail’s will get rid of both. 🙂

    #76 MD (reposted from the end of the last thread)

    “Does that make it less valuable in the eyes of the receiver?”

    It all depends on the receiver’s perspective. If your wife looks at the gift’s loving gesture and excitement of going to London, she will be ecstatic, without even giving any consideration as to how much it costs you, out of pocket. If she values a gift more, though, by how much you had to actually spend on it, then it might lower her appreciation for the trip.

  13. caught me b4 I correct my typo.

  14. Bitterlaw says:

    MD – I saw your list of home projects. In the past 5 years, we replaced our roof, turned a garage into a den/family room, replaced all the windows in the house and completely redid the kitchen (tore out everything to the outside walls and down to the floor beams). After Jul guts our school system, I will have to move to a state where people are allowed to pay to have better public schools.

  15. Bitterlaw says:

    As for London, if your wife isn’t happy that you are getting an amazing deal, take my wife. She loves London.

    We are planning on going next year with our chiildren. We wanted to wait until our daughter was 10 so she would actually remember it.

  16. 10 – Thanks for the internal info. It shows the November match-up poll is B.S., mainly because those supporting other GOP candidates are lying about voting for Obama in November.

    The fight is over who is more likely to defeat President Obama. Therefore, supporters are trying to make their opponents look bad, thus making them all look bad.

    The tea party answers are silly enough, but the idea that Obama is getting the majority of Conservative voters over each Republican is absurd.

  17. Read last thread comments and am amazed how easily many of you are fooled by polls. As I just said, the polls look bad BECAUSE President Obama looks beatable. Republicans are answering falsely (or out of spite) against GOP primary opponents. I don’t give President Obama much of a chance of winning Nevada. HE purposely destroyed much of the economy of that state.

    I’m not saying ignore the polls, but realize this ain’t November.

    strange but true

    the watertight doors on titanic probably ended up killing people

    they did not rise far above the waterline, so they did not keep water from spilling over to the adjacent compartment

    but they did keep the water from spreading evenly throughout the ship and thus settling evenly. instead titanic went down bow first.

    without the doors the ship would have taken longer to sink, allowing help to arrive

  19. jason says:

    19. They needed another hour and a half, I don’t know if they would have gotten that much time. But for sure the ship going down on even keel would have allowed for a more orderly evacuation and perhaps more survivors.

  20. jason says:

    There will be a Titanic special Sunday and Monday nights.

  21. jason says:

    “As for London, if your wife isn’t happy that you are getting an amazing deal, take my wife.”

    Sounds like Bitter wants a vacation…..from married life.

  22. Bitterlaw says:

    You’re in my wheelhouse. I have studied Titanic since I was 10. Your theory was, at best, inconclusive. Some tests showed it would have settled evenly but begun to flood faster at the bow and stern as both ends settled below the waves. Also, no study showed it staying afloat longer than an additional hour. Since almost all victims froze to death rather than drowned, the Carpathia would still have been too late.

  23. Marv says:

    #23 Bitterlaw,

    Actually, the Titanic ran into an iceberg and sank. That’s pretty much all there was to it.

  24. jason says:

    23. Yeah, in any event the Carpathia would have been too late.

    The best chance to save the Titanic’s passengers and a crew was the California, which actually saw the distress signals and did nothing.

  25. jason says:

    ” Actually, the Titanic ran into an iceberg and sank ”

    That’s conventional wisdom. The truth is that lax regulations under the Bush presidency contributed to serious design flaws.

  26. Bitterlaw says:

    Also, if the ship had flooded evenly, the boilers would have flooded sooner (possibly exploding) and the lights would have gone out earlier, leading to more panic.

  27. GF says:

    Many years ago, I picked up an amazing engineering manual for that class of ships entitled “Olympic and Titanic” (can’t find it on AMazon right now, but it has an incredible layout of long blueprints, photos and schematics for every inch of those vessels). The conclusion by the Board of Inquiry was that while flawed, Titatic’s overall design ensured that she did sink slowly and on an even keel, thus keeping the loss of life lower than it might have been under the circumstances. Indeed, changes to the hull design did not help Brittanic from sinking in less than an hour when she struck a German mine in 1916.
