-- -- national -- -- Fox News contributor -- -- warmest welcome to morning mr.
diamond industry hello dude seriously you're talking in general.
-- -- -- And restore employment to Charles from Brian I'm Norma how often should -- I thought it was your job at this forum.
I'm a fan don't ever get too comfortable horse that her -- I don't know mine -- to -- never understood you meant a prediction.
In the Washington Post -- -- was an election.
The elections the question was crystal ball what do you think's gonna happen and so I think Obama wins an Electoral College pretty handily.
Because I think he's got such a strong -- in the battleground states but in the popular vote.
That's a different story I think ground he might actually -- him something like 5049.
In the popular vote -- could be one of those elections -- Gone back to 2000 we're gore had more votes than bush but bush ends up in the way.
Where you -- Now permanent general lynch Morgan -- I don't care.
It was but it people probably -- gonna offer Obama who listens programs such -- those -- gonna -- -- at least you have the American on its -- and I don't.
-- -- I can't believe.
There you or anyone else.
Reports for Barack Obama's gonna -- brutal winter morning introduced.
I don't know orchard the American idea that if you if you ever did you hear rooting for care -- your candidate wins people do feel but I I just like I don't know.
I just I've.
And explain if Arnold I think but obviously you -- -- -- suitable for -- for a variety of reasons one earlier okay.
But I can't believe in your heart teachers -- I don't I can't believe that any sensible person.
Any sensible -- Believes that this country is gonna be better off.
But four more years of the notes some -- nothing to do went through would come from a -- Obama is capitalism from -- -- -- president.
-- for all of us to -- about justice you can't tell me that you think it's going to be about a foreigners but the last war.
Well you know its interest -- mean from a political point of view everybody says there were two ways to run this election could be a choice election or could be a referendum on Barack Obama.
The way you're talking is is just a pure referendum on Barack Obama.
I think increasingly -- Romney has made it -- -- selection I mean selecting.
Paul Ryan -- the DP was a very strong ideological statement and I think he's come out and you know made it very clear.
He sees the world differently.
And Barack Obama -- so it's a choice.
Boston choice and I want to comfortably not not you don't -- a personal chores.
Clearly the candidates have ideologically -- conditions -- when interest because everybody you know I -- vote for Barack Obama.
Interest caused it but I don't company got elected -- for a number of reasons that many people do and on -- -- as a million times and I thought it was good.
-- this country to put a black face in the White House and -- little -- world.
That I bought in two.
As -- many people.
All the hope and change and all of tonight.
And I thought to to McCain.
All we've -- in front of -- for a long time -- disastrous.
Campaign he's agreement we're gonna expect rhetoric and picked.
The wrong person and god -- and the vice president or anything else who -- and but called.
I'll be shocked.
If this country thinks there's a majority of people if there's if enough people and album but a majority of voters that you just wanted to know.
But out of the electoral through electoral map falls and so serenity wants a bit like to.
I can I can't -- I can't believe anybody would get on Wednesday morning and feel hopeful about America.
-- I think you're -- -- hopeful in global.
Basis -- GMA I don't know about you but if you got your money in the stock market stock market's doing pretty good consumer confidence right now is not on -- not about the how.
Housing market -- I mean there's lots of reasons to feel better you think about the wars I mean this is the basically.
If you've been listening to the Obama campaign rhetoric they've get out there they make their -- but I'm just repeating it for you.
Those -- reasons.
To be hopeful.
But I mean your point I mean I just don't view the world you do you're white I'm black but I must tell you I didn't think oh just because they put a black guy and there is a -- to -- hopeful.
Hopeful you know it's interesting plot how -- somebody laureate latest reverse that that the the table here only on me.
So if Romney wins exactly why would you be hopeful he hasn't told you -- is gonna reduce the deficit with the tax plans are gonna be -- said the audit cut taxes on the rich and you bought it.
I know that's a good question.
I think that it just offers some potential.
For something different and I'm buying into that -- might be better that's a -- that's all I got.
The co host hello.
Primarily a lot of what I was trying to like put any pressure on the bottom of the that's why I'm gonna -- -- -- -- think it might -- -- a -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But I just think that the the -- are.
That it'll be the people will feel more hopeful.
A bit of that took in just not about me a lot of money and dived under but I don't care -- bonds are they can -- taxes only want I'm still gonna have enough to put to Tanzania.
Escalade and then led by -- -- it's not a big deal so but how does it but yeah today is I don't need all -- world.
But I think.
On but I think.
Romney -- -- horrible candidate I think you offers the potential for real hope I don't think you know the guidance.
Well that was a good point there was a good point he has just like we're talking about McCain being running a bad campaign I think.
You know what this has not been a great campaign -- Mitt -- And yet and yet.
-- quite close in terms of the national vote.
And that tells you something I mean really Obama needs to you know get out there he has to excite the base the base clearly doesn't have the kind of excitement that it had back then.
In 08 in fact if you look at enthusiasm right now enthusiasm is higher among Republicans but.
It's not low among Democrats in the the key here is constituencies.
Can Obama get out.
Not only blacks and Hispanics -- young people and especially women -- gender gap that head.
Spread at one point which is why Romney had bumped into a lead and had some momentum that's close now.
Really brownies relying on white man you I think -- plus 27 among white men in the country that's --
