Obama Campaign to Supporters: Don’t Panic Over Early Exit Polls


obamaIn a conference call Monday afternoon, President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign had one central message for their supporters when Election Day arrives tomorrow: They should “keep calm,” even if they hear snippets of information favoring Republican Mitt Romney.

“My warning, we need to stay calm for much of the day,” Stephanie Cutter, Mr. Obama’s deputy campaign manager, said, touting thousands of early ballots already submitted by voters. “We’ve already banked a pretty big portion of our vote.”

The fear, she explained, was early numbers leaking before voters have finished going to the polls, creating unnecessary panic and pessimism among Democrats.

“Keep calm and tweet on,” Ms. Cutter said. “So, no matter what you hear tomorrow about turnout in Republican counties or exit polls, particularly early in the day, please remember and remind your readers that, because of early votes, we’re where we need to be to win….I don’t think there’s going to be official exits until the end of the day, but if things leak out that aren’t validated or weighted, please stay calm.”

  1. He’s right, and for another reason too. People who are professionals, executives, and other people who can control their own time will vote early. If you work 8-4 or 9-5, as those middle class people who are lucky enough to have jobs do, and can’t get time off during the day, you’re going to be going to vote after 5 pm. The voting demographic changes in the evening. This sort of thing has happened before.

    Nobody should be getting all happy or depressed before all the votes are counted. And even then, if there are court challenges, it may be days before we really know.

    The election is in the hands of HaShem. We do our hishtadlus by voting for the person we think best, but the final result isn’t up to us or the pollsters.

    Jews all over the world are in big danger

    I just want to say that the world is falling apart and the United Stated of America no longer exists.

    I’m not a prophet and I can’t say for sure, but I believe wholeheartedly, that Barak Obama will be president once again. And I also believe that American Jewry is in big danger. I also believe that European Jewry is in big danger, and probably Jews all over the world are in big danger. But even though we went through the Nazis and suffered so much; so many Yidden were killed in very gruesome and sadistic ways, so many homes abandoned, so many lives destroyed, so many people suffering just because they were Jews.

    Soon the Jews will be targeted again, and this time it will be even worse, because it will be the Jews all over the world and there will be no place to run. And when every Yid (that can get there) has arrived in Eretz Yisroel, at that point or near that point all the nations of the world will come against Eretz Yisroel. And that’s when Hashem will show His might. He will show that He is the Ribbono Shel Olam, the Creator and the Ruler of the world forever. Until then I beg my fellow Jews, I beg you come close to HaKodosh Boruch Hu. It’s the only way to save yourself. Do it with all your heart and soul and try, try very hard to leave the countries that you have been guests in for two thousand years and come back to your home, come back to Eretz Yisroel the land that Hashem gave to Avrohom Avenu and to his descendants.

    The time is coming very soon! If you don’t make a move soon then it will be infinitely harder afterwards. True, Hashem will save all true Jews but it will be so much harder. The Yid that now picks himself up when he still has some gashmius left, and rejects it, and comes to Eretz Yisroel, has an enormous Zechus and Hashem will never abandon him. If he cries out to Hashem and puts himself in danger by coming to Eretz Yisroel, Hashem will never abandon him.

    This Hurricane Sandy was a great warning, but the warning is only beginning. Within the next week or two there will be very shocking things happening. Hopefully more Yidden will wake up. Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long for the Geula. I Daven every day and every night that our Yiddishe Folk will see the truth and will prepare themselves, really prepare themselves for the coming of Moshiach.

    I’m very sad. In this last storm Jewish lives where lost and also homes where lost. People are destitute. People have gotten a very big shock, and I feel bad for the Yidden who suffer, but they just aren’t listening! They don’t listen to Hashem. They are not being what they are supposed to be. Many have gone so far afield, that their Yiddishkeit is almost unrecognizable except for the fact that they still wear Tefillin put on Tzitzis Talisim and so on………

    Mother: I heard about long gas lines. Why aren’t they giving out the gasoline in the areas affected by the storm?
    Moishe’la: They want the suffering to be great. They want riots to begin. They want everyone to be unsettled. They want everyone to be miserable, and then they can take over.

    Father: How come the Rabbonim don’t tell the people to come to Eretz Yisroel?
    Moishe’la: I don’t know, the Rabbonim are interesting in America. Most of them are just as much in the Gashmius as anyone else. Don’t forget the Divrei Chaim z”l said clearly that at the end of time most of the Yidden and even the Rabbonim will be Erev Rav.

    I want to tell you that the tragedies have not ended. I want you to understand that America has become an ugly place. The United States has lost its beauty. It’s lost it’s freedom and it has become a dangerous place, especially for people who believe in Hashem. But not only are the Jews in danger but believers of all kinds that believe in G-D are in danger Christians, Muslims, Jews. But as in every society where Amalek and Edom rule, there is a special enjoyment and feeling of elation from persecuting Jews and this is soon going to be in the United states as well.

    The camps are ready. All that has to happen is Martial law, and from that moment the real suffering begins. And don’t think that if you are in Israel the long arm of the “New World Order” the American-style New World Order, won’t try to persecute the Jews in Israel. They will probably start with American Jews for all kinds of reasons.

    I want to explain that wherever we are in the world we are in danger, however I want to reiterate that the only place now for a Jew, is in Eretz Yisroel. Because here Hashem will protect all those who cry out to Him for help, and sacrifice to be Yidden. Those people who believe very much and trust HaKodosh Boruch Hu will come to Eretz Yisroel and they will get much credit for coming because it’s not easy. There are those who live here already, but don’t trust Hashem. If they start to trust Hashem, they will also be given special treatment from Shomayim. All those who believe and trust in Hashem, all those who cry out to Hashem for help, and live in Eretz Yisroel, will have special treatment.

    I also want to say that the Erev Rav which have taken control Kivyachol of our communities, of our cities, of the government of the Zionists, of the Knesset, those people even if they cry out to Hashem will not be helped. They are not really crying out to Hashem because they are not really believers in Hashem .The minute that things settle down, The Erev Rav will go back to their treachery so they are lost! But the true Jew whose Neshama was at Har Sinai will always be Hashem’s special son or daughter, always be closer to Hashem than any other people of the world.

  3. Every able bodied Jew has an achreius to go out & vote for the canditate that promises to support Israel in its current economic state! Lo Saamod Al Dam Reiecha!
