GOP Political Director: It’s Game Over For Obama

RNC Political Director Rick Wiley released this statement today.
Republican insiders are very confident going into the election tomorrow.

The Obama camp has been firing off a number of memos in desperate attempt to convince the media (and themselves) that they’re not losing. What they aren’t telling you is this isn’t 2008; the numbers show we’re doing much better in early voting, and they are doing much worse.

But more importantly we are poised to blow the Obama campaign out on Election Day thanks to a superior GOTV program and a historical GOP Election Day advantage.

In the four party-registration states (Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada), we are poised to win the Election Day vote by even greater margins than we did in 2008. That’s right, Jeremy Bird, we beat you on Election Day even in 2008.

This time around we have over 150,000 volunteers across the battleground who have already contacted over 53 million voters and expect to contact millions more from now until the polls close tomorrow night.

The Democrats have expended much energy to make the point that more Democrats than Republicans have voted early in some states. It makes sense that the same desperate campaign that made “revenge” their closing argument would make this ridiculous stat the central defense of their ground game. Republicans are an Election Day party. By and large, we vote on Election Day, and we vote in much larger numbers than Democrats.

Democrats’ problems are compounded because, as they fail to tell you, they are cannibalizing their Election Day voters. The great turnout operation they claim to have isn’t turning out enough new or sporadic voters; they’re largely getting their reliable voters to vote early instead of on Election Day.

The Republican strategy has been the reverse of the Democrats’. We have turned out our voters who aren’t as likely to come to the polls on Election Day, securing their votes during early voting. Now, all that remains to do is give our reliable voters the final reminder needed to get them to the polls Tuesday. And we have many more reliable voters left than the Democrats.

In Colorado there are over 26,000 (34%) more high-propensity Republican voters available than high-propensity Democrat voters. In Florida there are 166,000 (21%) more; 85,000 (47%) more in Iowa; and 16,000 (22%) more in Nevada.

And in Ohio, Republicans have 368,000 more high-propensity voters available than Democrats–72 percent more, in fact–and enough to off-set the Obama campaign’s most optimistic (and unrealistic) early vote math.

So, when you add it all up, the Democrats’ early vote advantage just isn’t big enough. Republicans will come out ahead, and Mitt Romney will claim victory. And our superior ground game will ensure that the margin of victory is even greater than these numbers would suggest.

The Obama campaign’s superior ground game is a myth.
They claim they have double and triple the people and offices across the country, yet poll after poll has shown voters have been contacted equally if not more by the Romney campaign and the Republicans. It goes to show you what big government bureaucracy gets you.

I’m glad Democrats are so eager to talk about their ground game. The more they talk, the more they prove the numbers don’t add up.

It’s (ground) game over.

    Sounds like they’re still counting on the illegal vote, the dead people and pet vote, and the votes from Toon Town.

  • Oliver

    I really, really hope this guy is right … but honestly, what else is he going to say?

  • Rose

    I agree – I don’t see their numbers adding up and their faces prove it.

    But what kind of game is FOX playing. They don’t just claim the number are not there for Romney – they find snide ways to insult Romney, too.

    Ultimately it doesn’t matter ahead, behind, or dead even. People need to vote as if their very lives depend on it, because they do.

    #4 – I don’t know if you are talking about FoxNews TV or their website. Most of the articles on the Fox website are generated by the AP, which is in the tank for Obama. And Fox is not really very conservative you know . . . they are as liberal in their way as CNN. Notice all those AOL links down at the bottom of the pages?

    If anyone has any faith in the Rassmussen polls, putting Romney only one point ahead of Obama, please read this July article from Scott Rasmussen.

    Scott Rasmussen has never ever been in Romney’s column. Never. He may as well have said that Romney was not even a contender. Finally Scott Rasmussen will be outed.

    #11 – Sorry – Fox News TV a general range of the hosts and pundits,. most of whom are supposedly GOP and “CALLED” Conservative.

    If they were fussing that Romney isn’t far enough RIGHT, that would be one thing, but their overall tone is just, he hasn’t got what it takes – period, I think.

  • QA_NJ

    One of the things missing from the early vote analysis is that they are counting party affiliation, assuming all Republicans will vote Romney and all Democrats will vote Obama. While I do think the vast majority of Republicans are going to vote Romney, I suspect a significant number of Democrats aren’t going to vote for Obama and with either vote Romney, third party, or leave president blank, and that will further undermine the Obama vote. That said, I don’t underestimate the ability of Democrats to create votes.

    Here’s something I want to run by you folks: Suppose the media is throwing the poll results not so much to discourage ‘pubs and independents, but because they want the race to appear closer than it is so when the ‘rats steal it, it won’t be as obvious?

    # 14 – Gary – Just call it what you are – an OBAMA SUPPORTER.

    #16 – there are very few Fox newscasters that I would actually call “conservative” by any stretch, many of them are Democrats and there are more than a few that are wolves in sheep’s clothing.

    Qa NJ. I agree very very few republicans will change minds, many democrats who are dissollusioned, will vote for Romney . Turnout in some democrat cases is good for Romney

  • Sasja

    However it turns out, I have to say Romney was not disappointing. I still think it’s RR in a landslide. 2010 was not a fluke (that’s pronounced flook for those of you in Rio Linda).

    in a few hours, Zero will get the final word from his political operatives, it’s 0ver, lost

    this is what always happens, most famously in 1980. Caddell told Carter the bad news on the return flight from Washington State, that’s why Carter conceded at 7pm EST, costing West Coast D’s their local seats. Don’t be surprised if the same thing happens tomorrow.

    then the media’s self-flagellation will begin, just as meaningless as it they are now.

  • Sally


    Certainly that is the strategy. Thankfully, the early votes are public knowledge and are objective, thanks to the secretaries of state. ID requirement will help to some degree tomorrow.

    It is up to each of us to be vigilant. The goodness and decency of almost ALL voters will prevent fraud, but using paper ballots and closely watching/reporting will be sensible.

    I think I mostly know the Democrats, i.e. Judge Napolitano, Frank Luntz, Dick Morris, and a few others, especially the ones like Greta that never try to hide it, but she still does a great job on a lot of non-political issues, and even some that are, where she is more Conservative than her p;arty and a lot of RINOS.
    Sean won’t claim the Republican hat, but claims to be Conservative – and it has been A WHOLE LOT OF YEARS since I agreed with him, and O’Reilly.

    Few are those who are not subtle, like Geraldo, Bob Beckel, Alan Colmes….

    But I swear, the subtle DIMS are more Conservative than the ones who bill themselves as Conservative – i.e. Charles Krauthammer…

    And if anyone disagrees with me – I’ll confess upfront, two killer lightening strikes this summer and ALL Files I’ve had for 12 yrs that back my play such as Krauthammer, are gone and I haven’t been back up and running long enough to have the evidence I need and ain’t going there this week. Too much going on in my household as well as thi9s election to worry about Fox talking heads, this week.

    Will say, one set of cold chills from Fox was the recommendations the roundtables of them started making about who would be good for the new cabinet, of either of the candidates.

    MILLSTONES for Liberalism. GAG me with a spoon!

    I had quit watching Fox News a year or two back almost entirely, and when I started back, I watched the Fox Business more than the Fox News – and I only got back on Fox when my computer went down last time, in July, and my service guy took a million years to get parts for it – and I wanted Election news and my radio was fritzed. then Benghazi happened. I don’t find Fox to be Fair and Balanced and I am tired of the “conservative heads letting Dims come on and tell BALD FACED LIES without being challenged for them, MOST OF THE TIME.

  • Rose

    #18 – rathernot – ABSOLUTELY – felt that way for decades.

    #23 – SO LOVE IT

    Granny #20 to #16 – I answered half way but long and rambling and it went to pg 2 somewhere – and I am really tired, and pls excs the manner and style of the answer – but definitely totally agreeing with you – I think FOX is well-named, remembering the Gingerbread boy that ran away, and the fox offered to help him cross the river. Wolf works very well, too – very very well.

    OT.. too good not to listen too..

    Malcom X: “Black Democrats = Political Chumps & Race Traitors”

    “For 12 long years I lived within the narrow-minded confines of the ‘straitjacket world’ created by my strong belief that Elijah Muhammad was a messenger direct from God Himself, and my faith in what I now see to be a pseudo-religious philosophy that he preaches.. I shall never rest until I have undone the harm I did to so many well-meaning, innocent Negroes who through my own evangelistic zeal now believe in him even more fanatically and more blindly than I did.” ~ Malcolm X


  • valerie
  • My only issue is the early election statement about getting the more disinterested to vote, leaving the dedicated voters for election day. Now I’m a dedicated voter and I went early, which means some of those numbers aren’t accurate. Reps may have already voted in larger numbers than they think, leaving less behind.

    That said, we have to remember Ohio and Virginia and Florida votes Republicans mostly. Obama in 2008 was a phenom. Not any more.

    Outside the hardcore dems, blacks, some Hispanics and special interest, he lacks support. Is it enough for him? Depends on demographics and turnout state by state. I’ll be happy when I see Fla, VA, Ohio and Colorado fall in line.

    #33 there isn’t enough left now for Obama to do much after a month or two more – there simply won’t be anything left to wreck at the rate he is going right now.

    WORSE, if America LEGITIMATELY votes for Obama or LOSERS WHO CANNOT GET HIM OUT, but would for all practical purpose ENABLE the Obama voters to keep him – God will just say – IF THAT IS WHAT YOU WANT – WITH SANDY FOR A WARNING – Meaning that BLUE STATES GOT HIT HARD AND ARE NOW COMPLAINING OF THEIR SOCIALIST GOVT THEY VOTED FOR THEMSELVES TREATING THEM BETTER THAN SOCIALIST GOVTS GENERALLY TREAT THEIR PEONS – If that is what you want, with Benghazi and Obamacare and Sandy aftermath staring you in the face, I’ll step aside and let you have what you want, and remove the remaining SHIELD out of your way – let you have your HARVEST.

    It won’t take a month or two.

    #32 – PENSION OFF????????? NOT THIS SIDE OF HADES! Clinton and Obama didn’t PENSION OFF who THEY pruned out.

    Be careful what your MOUTH TOLERATES and ALLOWS. Just saying from a BIBLICAL perspective of the Tongue is like the RUDDER OF A SHIP, and when mammas do a whiney NO to their children, the cookie jar is soon EMPTY.

    Stand your ground or get out of the ay of someone who CAN!

    Those PENSIONS are half the problem and REGULAR FOLKS don’t have them. Put ALL govt personnel on Social Security instead of SEIU pensions, including Congress, Jusdges and President and Cabinet – ET AL EN TOTO.

    Justice Louis D. Brandeis: The government is the potent omnipresent teacher. For good or ill it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. To declare that the end justifies the means — to declare that the government may commit crimes — would bring terrible retribution.

    Justice Louis D. Brandeis: At the foundation of our civil liberties lies the principle that denies to government officials an exceptional position before the law and which subjects them to the same rules of conduct that are commands to the citizen.

    Justice Louis D. Brandeis: [The founding fathers] conferred, as against the Government, the right to be left alone — the right most valued by civilized men.

    #31 – ME TOO, but not by any means ALL of them – some others are even sneakier – like Brit Hume, for instance.

    O’Reilly is so stupid and flagrant, if he were a wolf or coyote, he would starve, for always spooking his prey.

  • valerie

    I am ANGRY. This is why. Here’s a story from here, earlier today.

    A whole mess of high-ranking retirees paid out of their own pockets for an ad endorsing Mitt Romney.

    Naturally, I thought that was a little odd. Admirals and Generals who are serving get it pounded into their heads to avoid making political statements, and so they don’t normally do that kind of thing after they retire. Then I saw this:

    Armed Services Chairman Denounces White House Benghazi Cover-Up and Muzzling of Military Leaders

    “Despite Congress’s direct constitutional powers over the military, McKeon says:

    We’re not getting anything. I have written to commanders in the field, 3-, 4-star admirals and generals, and the response I got out of the Department of Defense is that “we will not be able to answer your simple yes and no questions,” that I’m sure they already know the answers to.

    “We will not be able to answer them on your timeline (which was now a couple of weeks ago when I wrote the letter), and we do not know when we’ll be able to respond.” And the other requests that we’ve asked for briefings, “we will not be able to comply with.” ”


    A written question from a Senator or Congressman is called a “Congressional” and if such a message is delivered to the military at any level, there is this immediate kicked-anthill effect, because they generally have a 10-day time limit, no excuses accepted.

    Our military jumps when Congress asks.

    We want them to do that.

    The second story tells us that somebody is interfering with that process, and in my opinion, suggests a reason for the very unusual decision of 500 high-ranking officers to wade into a political campaign.

    Tomorrow will be the proof heard around the world that we as a nation are done with Ocrazy. These polls showing it is neck and neck are skewed. They are plugging the dam. Ocrazy is in serious trouble and every last main stream news outlet knows it. They have gotten word to keep up the slant, keep up the momentum and the lies, stating Ocrazy is in the running. If not they know well what the next few months will be as Ocrazy transfers, transitions out. They, Ocrazy does not want the world to know how poorly he is doing, how he will lose in a land slide. He wants to keep up the guise that he is still the ONE to his followers and not dissuade them from going to the polls with the thoughts that there is no hope, in an Ocrazy win. This is their strategy and it will not work. This nation is finished with him, the One and done ex- president that never was. He never was a true president, one for the people. He was a one man wrecking ball, out for himself and other nations that shoveled monies into his pockets. He knows that his days are numbered and the people of this great nation will turn out in droves to prove that he is not the man they want in the highest office next go around. Say it is not so, Ocrazy …. Your rigging the polls to make it look like your still in the running, when the truth is you lost long ago.. 2010 was a window into 2012. The shellacking is going to be brutal….

    Off course the level heads of the military are disturbed by Obama. They have men and women they must protect in the military. They feel like they have been left out to dry.

    Deaths, injuries, mentally and physically, they given the ultimate sacrifice and when a Commander in Chief is incapable of leading, that is the last straw.

    I can only pray that ALL military votes are counted, yet, you hear they may not be.

    THEY ARE THE FIRST WHOSE VOTES MUST BE COUNTED. The are the brave young women and men who are fighting for our freedom and we have them to thank and we and these commanders must forever stand side by side together and Obama has been a failure.

    Patty, the people who are speaking up are the retirees. Those who are currently serving cannot do that. The people who are speaking up do not have direct responsibility for other peoples’ lives. That’s what caught my attention in the first place.

    A serving officer that has been told not to comment must not comment. Should he or she talk about it to some trusted senior person and should that person act in a manner that points out the serving officer, that officer’s career is toast. And yet, an order to delay or refuse to comply with a Congressional request for information is unlawful….

    and the result if an ad with 500 retirees’ names. WOW.

    With respect to the votes of the rank and file, the military votes are small in number, and not likely to be statistically significant, although it’s a snide touch to deprive them of their votes. The responsibility for voting is on us civilians.

    Somebody has to stand up for our troops.
