Game on. Santorum drops out, Gingrich and Paul continue to not matter, and we're off.
Mitt clearly behind Obama in H2H matchups as it stands, and will be interesting to see if this alone will bump his numbers up or the intraparty coalescence will not be until the convention. I expect a glut of polling in the next week that will give us an accurate starting point.
For the moment, any Congressional/local races and everything else election-related can be posted here. Might start separate threads once we get a bit closer.
Well, I mean, that’s what it is. I doodoo and then listen to Katy Perry.
Finally, the interminable Paul acts like a douche threads are over.
Basically just need to follow this for the next 6 months.
Of course not. Title editing is one of the biggest perks of being a mod.
Also, don't post directly after giving a down vote. Too obvious, and sad.
It's sad that I care more about the case of beer I have riding on the outcome than I do about the outcome itself.

We can probably wait until July before we start doing that.
June 1980 - Carter 39, Reagan 32, Anderson 21 (lol)
June 1988 - Dukakis 52, Bush 38
June 1992 - Perot 39 (lol again), Bush 31, Clinton 25
June 2004 - Kerry 49, Bush 43
June 2008 - McCain 46, Obama 45
History tells us that no one knows what will happen in November. By Larry J. Sabato.
1) I can't stand the nickname "pubs". I don't see that being used anywhere else on the internet except www.democraticunderground.com
2) Pro-war, pro-drug war, pro-NDAA, pro-PATRIOT ACT, pro-deficit spending, pro-debt explosion, pro-Federal Reserve. They are essentially the exact same candidate. Nothing is going to change.
3) It's not Obama vs. Romney. Sure, one of them will most likely be president, but it's actually going to be a 4-way or 5-way race and you'll have that many choices on your ballot. I hope no one votes for either of the awful two main options. Gary Johnson is currently polling at 7% in a 3-way hypothetical. If he can get to 15%, he'll be on the debate stage.
4) Gingrich doesn't matter, but Ron Paul does. His base of support is significant now. He pulls votes from both Romney and Obama, but moreso from repubicans. No he isn't going to run 3rd party, but his supporters - for the most part - will not vote for Romney. They will either write in his name or vote for Gary Johnson (L). This makes it extremely difficult for Romney to win.
I'll miss the debates. Obama and Romney will have debates, sure, but not as many and there won't be any Gingrich, Perry, or Cain.
Polls have shown huge differences in registered voters vs likely voters. Even bigger than normal.
Go away, KA!
True, but likely voter models this far out are kinda ridiculous. Saying their sample is likely voters is not as simple as calling people and only taking info from people who say they're likely voters. It's using modeling to predict sample turnouts and lining up the data to match those models. And the most recent turnout data is from the GOP pawnage of 2010, so it's not surprising to see current likely voter polls showing a tilt toward Romney. It's probably why Rasmussen always leans GOP because they only use their likely voter models in their polling.
All the more reason to have ID check.
Umm Newt is staying in til Tampa. He is now the anti Romney choice.
Obama off to a fast start. I don't think Romney can match this.

Heh, somebody else here dislikes you. I didn't downvote you. But thanks for the cover - now I can.
It won't matter.
Are we sure there won't be a movement to somehow ditch Mittens at the altar, er convention?
And grab who? There's no one out there worth nominating in his place who hasn't already said NO THANKS.
"And I try to har-mo-nize with songs the lonesome sparrow sings...
There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden."
There's still Mickey Mouse, and even he's a much better choice than Obama.
I feel like we are arguing over a 1 star recruit and someone who was honorable mention All-Region and expecting them to be ACC Rookie of the Year.
Would the Republicans nominate Mr. Mouse instead of Mr. Romney, given Mickey's high-pitched voice, metrosexual dress style, and known association with odd-speaking ethnics like Donald Duck and Goofy?
what to do?
Is total debt really the best metric?
We're Number 1!
Looks like Obama got a heck of a bounce on that one.
