During the Civil War, some American admiral was warned of torpedoes threatening his Navy ship. (Torpedoes in the Civil War are what we call mines today.) He reportedly said, "Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!" (Since he was a damn Yankee, I won't identify him.)
Today the appropriate statement for Republicans is "Damn the polls, full speed ahead!"
Now we are nearing the end of the 2012 presidential campaign and the polls are against us. There is much evidence that the polls cannot be believed, that they are false, that they are deliberately misstated to depress the Republican vote. However, we cannot assume that this is true. We have to have a huge turnout of our voters. We have to show up at the polls and vote!
My belief is that we have a very good chance of winning this election. William L. Gensert at American Thinker believes this too -- see his post, "It's Over." (The title is a bit of justified sarcasm.)
Who will win the presidential election of 2012? We won't know for sure until early in the morning of November 7th, the day after the vote.
After that, it is what it is and there is no use worrying about it.
