1 Reason for Final Weekend Optimism (for Obama): The Electoral College. You cite 2 sources, one feeling optimistic about FL, CO, VA and one pessimistic. Let's cherry pick, as this whole article does, and only agree with the optimist. Give Romney FL, CO, VA. Obama only needs IA, NV, and OH to win anyways, nevermind that the latest trends in the polls show Obama leading in CO and VA, but for the benefit of the doubt have FL, where aside from Mason Dixon, polls show Obama regaining the lead there too.

If Obama regains the lead anywhere except liberal states, it is because the people are dumber than I could ever imagine and that leaves America with another set of problems. Heck, why dont my son be president if all you have to do is get the mainstream media to like you? Anyone that supports this failure of a president is a complete buffoon. As Obama says regularly, there are major differences and the choice is clear - I find it hard to believer there are enough dumb people out there that care more about their sex life/birth control than defending and protecting our country??...of course I could be wrong.

No thanks. I don't trust any politician, especially one that won't tell me his complete plan.

You already know all the supposed reasons conservatives should feel downtrodden heading into Tuesday: The Obama campaign's balleyhooed turnout machine, heavily Democratic state polls in places like Ohio, Nate Silver's electoral model, and the overwhelming conventional wisdom in the media all suggest the president will limp over the finish line on Tuesday and secure four more years.  I've already written about why I think the race will ultimately hinge on turnout and enthusiasm, both of which could break either way in three days.  But while liberals attempt to sow seeds of despair -- perhaps in an act of Freudian...
