-- let me write to them the next question on my mind was.
Are we gonna have another 2000 or one person wins popular other -- select store a lot of people have been bugs and about that.
Well I regard 2000 very well as a reform party candidate who ran so well in Palm Beach County job.
But are we gonna go down to that I think we could.
And we could in the state of Ohio.
And I think Romney's got to win one other state besides obviously Florida North Carolina Virginia.
And Ohio and one other -- after that but I do believe.
We can go down right -- final.
Final hours and go on into the early morning another Kennedy Nixon race if you well.
And go on till it's almost the next morning I recall they have they 1968.
Campaign I was with Richard Nixon.
Against Hubert Humphrey.
We're at the Waldorf Astoria.
It wasn't Chile early morning we were calling Mike Wallace -- tell Dick Daley to throw in his vote.
To make sure we want Illinois I think it could go down to the finals just like that and just like 2000.
Our rights old you are gonna stay up late -- and then -- I'm gonna ask everybody today's is right on top of the election.
-- -- the polls are split though I mean there's there's a lot of polling operations out there that are saying Obama is.
Got a lot of the battleground state which brings up the Electoral College problem again.
What do you believe how audio -- of measure these.
Well I you know I've.
I've listened to both arguments I've listened to the arguments of Karl Rove which I think are fairly persuasive.
That if you measure let's say Obama's turn out in the early voting in Ohio.
And in places like that.
He is he's running ahead.
Had but he's running -- -- you know something like 180000.
Votes behind when he did the last time out and the Republicans are running 70000 had.
Vote that would make up the entire difference it was Obama's victory so I think both sides are probably correct I don't think.
The -- of these pollsters are fixing the polls but I do believe.
There waiting some of them are waiting them in -- to what happened in 2008.
Which was are totally aberration all year.
So I mean it done before this hurricane came -- it looked at me like Romney was.
Closing the deal in Florida and North Carolina beginning to close in Virginia and Ohio -- still.
The difficult uphill battle.
I think maybe that's still the case right now and not I think certain -- -- on both sides we're gonna find out because there's a profound disagreement.
Yeah and well you bring up the hurricane in and note 41 states that have been impacted by -- sandy in the reminds me so much of a tennis match where there's a rain delay.
And when they come back out -- the -- the momentum many times shifts as that happened.
Well -- you know and I used another another metaphor Tom.
In its Indianapolis right when -- I was a kid -- have a big crashes on the Indianapolis.
Breast -- way during the 500.
And they put yellow flag out.
In the yellow flag means everybody stays in the same position they keep going around the track.
Until it's lifted and they can go back to racing again and all from the individual that's had the momentum.
-- -- was to have -- one -- was ahead can drop behind in one it was behind you may get all set up and move around bad.
So I think it's like you mentioned -- the tennis match and everything.
There is a possibility.
Which was in Romney's favor could have been halted.
President Obama certainly looks better up there you know walking on the Jersey Shore.
Then he did Gary yellen about Romney Asia which was nothing collusion -- the election let me say this.
If the storm had not interrupted.
This election the -- real October surprise the storm.
Rock Obama would be a one term president he may still be a one term president but it happens if it does not been for that storm.
I think you have lost because I think Romney was slowly moving ahead in the battleground states they look at the Gallup poll had -- seven points ahead nationally.
You can't win by five points nationally without winning the electoral comment -- -- that Buchanan thank you so much appreciate you -- -- -- Thank you --
