  • Your New Scoop Site

    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
    • Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
    • Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
    • Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
    • If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.

    The Reality Suddenly Occurs

    to the Obama campaign.

    Mitt Romney's election team cannot coordinate with the PAC groups that have been circulating around the state of Michigan in the last month, but it CAN be aware of where they are, what responses have been, and shifting poll data.  The shifting polls as I mentioned in a prior opinion show an RCP of +4 Obama, with a tie otherwise from a 2.9% MOE poll.  A Romney super PAC has ad buys in major markets in Michigan for the last week, and now it seems team Obama is in a panic:

    ".. the Obama campaign is going on Detroit broadcast TV with ads for 11/1 -- 11/6."
    OK, just a match play right?

    Now there have been visits throughout the state by Ann Romney, and they have been standing room only affairs on short notice.  $2 million is not chump change, even to these guys.  They know its not 2008, and Obama has a record to run from, as well as a funny thing going on about Benghazi. (Like WHY didn't he want to offer help to our ambassador and those with him?)

    The article above notes Obama ads will be about the auto bailout and Romney's comments about a bankruptcy. Going to that well once more may not have the desired effect however, as Romney has made his case quite well about his opinion piece in the debate process.

    Desperation now driving the Obama campaign to do exactly what Democrats do when in office.  Throw money at the problem hoping it does something.  .. Anything

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    We may be rid of the dope .. soon enough.

    Re-looking at the polling numbers from a week and a half ago for a comment reply brought a little optimism for Michigan.  I looked back:

    There have been TP express folks rolling through the state non stop.

    It is seen as winnable.  Take this polling for example.

    The polling shows a less than 4% lead for the president, which is in the statistical margin of error.  YES it could be swung the other way, (error effect) but there are still more than 13% according to the poll who remain undecided.

    Ask yourself this:  
    If 13 percent have not already decided, which way would they sway when it comes time to vote?

    A couple percent already committed to 3rd party, and may see another 1 percent from protest votes, but the majority of those will vote for the R or D.

    Undecided for what reasons?
    In the case of Obama, he hasn't done whats necessary to sell them on a second term.
    In the case of Romney, its the devil you don't know.

    Obama hasn't made the case he is a good leader or that his ideas work.  Romney as an unknown might cause a little concern, but at a decision making point, the new not yet tried will usually be chosen over the obvious failures of the old. (Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me)

    13 points undecided is a MONSTER break for Mitt Romney.  Its the greatest secret this election.  Mark my words.

    indeed.  A Monster spooky break.

    And then I looked forward to the poll mentioned as an "outlier":

    President Barack Obama             46.92%
    Republican Nominee Mitt Romney            46.56%
    another candidate            2.30%
    Undecided             4.23%
    There were 35,000 calls made, and just a little over 1,100 responded.

    Think about what that means.  Look at the questions asked, and the responses, and tell me you don't see an over sampling of frustrated Democrats.

    There is a good chance we see something no one expected only a few months ago.  Michigan for Romney By 1 1/2 points.

    Now excuse me, I need to go make some in-trade buys.
