Pray for bad weather!

We KNOW they’re skewing the polls to make Obama look like a shoo-in and discourage Republicans from going to the polls.

But I have a theory this could work against them … especially if the weather is lousy. Why get cold and wet if Teh Won is a shoo-in, right?

At PoliNation, I’ve been proposing, only half in jest, that we pray for bad weather. Tonight, I saw the article below, and I’m removing the half that was jest.

Political analysts admit that bad weather hurts Democrats, but has little effect on Republicans!

So do it! Pray for gray, cold, wet and windy. Beseech God to send sleet and snow showers to every Blue district in the nation.

And then make sure YOU and YOURS get to the polls. Share a dog sled if you have to. This election may well be the most important one in our nation’s history. It fershure is the most important you and I will see in our lifetimes.

October 26, 2010 – Bad news for Dems: Rain in the forecast for 2010 Election Day

In more bad news for Democrats, rain is in the forecast for much of the country on Election Day. According to Laurel Harbridge, a Northwestern University political science professor, GOP voters are not typically discouraged by rain. “Republicans are helped by bad weather … it does harm Democratic prospects.”

Other poll stories in the news:

It’s beginning to look a lot like 1980: “analysis shows most polls gave Reagan a narrow lead following the convention fallout, a lead which only blew open after the October debate. In 2012, the picture looks similarly close after the dust has settled from the party conventions” @

Unskewed polls show nearly 8 pt Romney lead: “Not a single major poll or approval/disapproval index favors Obama when’s analysis is applied. The website says there is Democratic bias in polling because of over-sampling Democrats based on voter exit polls in the 2008 presidential election, when enthusiasm for a then relatively unknown but charismatic presidential candidate boosted Democratic Party voter registration and turnout to historic levels.” @
