Could Obama Lose Home
State Of Illinois?

Campaign 2012: When an incumbent Democratic president is virtually tied in a congressional district he carried by high double digits in 2008, and is losing in the suburbs of his hometown, there could be trouble brewing. In August, a poll by the Joliet, Ill.-based polling firm of McKeon and Associates, found President Obama leading challenger Mitt Romney in Cook County, which includes Chicago and its suburbs, by a 12-point margin 49-37. That would seem to be a comfortable edge, but it is significantly smaller than traditional margins needed to outweigh

No, not as long as Chicago is part of Illinois.

There are already 47,000 Obama votes in the machines in Chicago before a single vote is cast.

It's the Chicago way.

I sure hate that town ... and that state.

Can he lose here....? YES he can!

Outside of Cook County Illinois is pretty red. Cook County residents outside of the city are fuming at property taxes...and everyone I know is upset over the 66% income tax hike, and the doubling of tolls on the Toll roads.

Remember we elected a Republican Senator in 2010, several more to statewide offices and the Governor won by a squeak. His opponent could have challenged him.

Obama only won in Illinois becaause of his dirty tricks, and then the replacement, Alan Keyes (good man that he is) was from Maryland and said he didn't know if he would move his family to Illinois if he won.. Obama was an unknown outside of his Chicago district, he won by default.

The rest of us are boiling mad...Waiting in the weeds ready to strike on election day.

My mom lives in Quincy and while it has been predominately dim in past years, not nearly as much now-especially among seniors.

Better guess is that he wins by an embarrassingly small margin, but if that's the case, he will be having bigger problems that night.

Their approach is in this manner: whichever votes are not automatically theirs (theirs, meaning parasites, communists, felons, the dead, illegals, fellow thugocrats) they will buy. Any votes they cannot buy, they will manufacture.

Why is Obozo wasting money on ads in this stupid state? These zombies will vote for Obozo...Still its funny.

Heh heh heh. Here we go.

I have been posting that Illinois will be in play by Halloween. Watch the Chicago vote, and the black vote in particular. Black ministers have not been happy about the gay marriage endorsement; black leaders have not been happy about Obama not delivering jobs; black businessmen have not been happy about the stalled economy. Add to that the Olympics that Obama tried to bring to Chicago that would have meant bucket loads of money for his big money backers but would have gutted black neighborhoods to build. He sold out black Chicago, and is now headed to Hawaii to retire. So what do they owe HIM?

Black Chicago doesn't have to vote for Romney. All they have to do is not show up. None of us will ever know beforehand. All word of mouth, passed from ministers and leaders to parishioners and friends one at a time. "Stay home."

All Chicago, and specifically Black Chicago, has to do is not show up, and downstate hands Illinois to Romney. Watch for it. Listen for the black leaders peelling off, one by one. Chicago NAACP head is just the latest.

If an unappealing candidate like our governor, Pat Quinn, can marshal the union vote to put himself over the top, Obama can do that and more. He will win Chicago, including the black vote, which will turn out for him, just like they did for Emanuel in early 2011. I have seen maybe two Romney stickers in Chicago this election season but many 2012 (Obama) stickers, not to mention all the Obama logos and other Obama stuff on peoples' cars. Romney will win or come close in the outer suburbs, but the close-in ones, the ones with the most votes, will go for Obama. I have seen no Obama ads here, which tells me that their polls tell them that Illinois is a lock. And it is. You can take it to the bank.

Chicago will make sure he doesn't lose if he needs the Illinois electoral votes.

In a crushing defeat they probably wouldn't risk jail for a lost cause.

If it is close several states will have massive frauds to deal with. And there will be contested ballots too, ala, Florida 2000.

I figure O cannot lose a close election.

Even though dems win the blue states,they still cheat just to say in practice. But if Obama has a shrinking margin in Ill. ,it doesn't bode well in other states that are up for grabs.

It would be great but I don't see it happening. Governor Sock-Puppet only carried three counties yet won the election. The Dems will find the votes they need to put Barry over the top by any means necessary, and both the Attorney General (Daughter of the de facto ruler of IL, House Speaker Michael Madigan) and the US Attorney Pat Fitzgerald will turn a blind eye to it all.

Political Correctness: Its force structure decimated by sequestration and budget cuts, the Marine Corps considers exchanging its proud and honored look for hats similar to the gendarmes who direct traffic in Paris. If sequestration´s annual spending cuts continue past this year, the Marine Corps will lose 8,000 in troop strength, Commandant Gen. James F. Amos told the Defense Writers Group in June.

Junk Science: Al Gore, patron saint of climate fraud, argues with Australia´s prime minister that its brushfires are not caused by warming and that the record shows the koala bear, like the polar bear, is quite safe. They were the largest Australian bushfires in a populous region in recorded history, consuming half the state of Victoria, claiming 12 lives and destroying an estimated 1 million sheep and thousands of cattle. And they occurred in February 1851 during one of the coldest years on record. Bushfires have been part of Australian life for centuries

Energy: The Golden State´s governor has signed legislation that regulates but does not ban the technology that has sparked an energy boom nationwide — and which may yet restore the state to solvency. If any state were to ban hydraulic fracturing, commonly referred to as fracking, the process that releases oil and natural gas trapped in porous shale formations, one would think it would be California. Gov. Jerry Brown, who leads the government in a state that hosted Solyndra and embraces endangered bird-chopping wind turbines,

Scandal: A deadly battle involving grenades between a drug cartel and Mexican police has added to the toll of lives taken with weapons trafficked by suspects that U.S. officials watched but did not stop. The same Obama administration officials responsible for letting thousands of weapons walk into Mexico and right into the hands of drug cartels in Operation Fast and Furious also passed on several opportunities to arrest and prosecute an arms smuggler who was busy supplying the cartels with hand grenades.

Corruption: The crash-prone government health-care site asks applicants if they want to register to vote as they try to sign up for ObamaCare. By sheer coincidence, a plurality of the uninsured are likely Democratic voters. Call it Motor Voter on steroids — the piggybacking of voter registration to an otherwise unrelated government function. Those trying to navigate Healthcare.gov, a website that looks and functions as if designed by the department of motor vehicles, are being asked if they want to register to vote just in time for crucial 2014 midterm elections

Regulation: From lost jobs to fewer hours to premium hikes that would make a loan shark drool, Barack Obama´s home state is a case study in why the first rule in health care reform, as in medicine, should be to do no harm. The president and his cohorts in the media have long accused Republicans of being out of touch with ordinary people. Remember the concocted story about President Bush the elder being so out of touch he was unfamiliar with supermarket bar-code scanners? But it´s President Obama who´s out of touch with ordinary people

Health Care: In a stunning admission, our Health and Human Services secretary admits ObamaCare is part of the fundamental transformation of America away from a free market in anything to a nanny state on steroids. Maybe Kathleen Sebelius was being sarcastic, or maybe she thought it might be a good way to reach the "young invincibles" who feel they had better things to do with their money than enroll in ObamaCare. But her recent appearance on Jon Stewart´s show on Comedy Central went about as well as ObamaCare´s train wreck of a rollout.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives
