The exit polls said 1 out of 6 voters considered Hurricane Sandy the MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE they considered as they voted, and many of those compared Bush's "slow" response to Obama's "fast" one. Thus the National polls switched from R53-O46 10 days before the election to R49-O49 in a matter of days and from R up 1-3 in the battleground states to O up 1-2 in the battlegrounds in the same time frame. Never mind that FEMA was totally FUBAR under both Bush and Obama (remember Wal-Mart did far better in New Orleans than FEMA.) There's your answer folks. O blew it with his debate, but nature handed it back.

We spent billions of dollars and billions of words on an election to switch from President Obama, a Democratic Senate and a Republican House to President Obama, a Democratic Senate and a Republican House.

Every election predictor was wrong, except one: Incumbents usually win.

Republicans have taken out a sitting president only once in the last century, and that was in 1980 when Ronald Reagan beat Jimmy Carter. Sadly, Reagan's record remains secure.

The Democrats ran up against the incumbency problem in 2004. The landslide election for Democrats in 2006 suggests that Americans were not thrilled with...
