Election Day predictions from Greta Van Susteren, John Zogby, Dr. Laura and many more

D.C. insiders, political gurus, and American newsmakers offered The Daily Caller their pre-election predictions based on one question: What do you think the most surprising result will be when we wake up, post-election, on November 3rd?

Here is what they said:

Ed Crane — president of the Cato Institute:

“Barack Obama will still be president.”

Jennifer Rubin — Pajamas Media editor and blogger at Commentary’s Contentions:

“The most surprising result will be that we won’t know control of the Senate.”

Jim Treacher — resident blogger at The Daily Caller:

“The only thing that will surprise me is if liberals don’t huddle under Christine O’Donnell’s loss to shelter them from the GOP storm.”

Grover Norquist — president of Americans for Tax Reform:

“Unlike 1994, there will be both a Republican and a conservative majority in the House. Republican victories in state legislative and gubernatorial races will allow Republicans to control redistricting to add an additional twenty House seats to Tuesday night’s haul, good for the next decade. This election will certify the death of Keynesian economic theory (government tax and spending can stimulate the economy) just as the fall of the Berlin Wall confirmed the death of Marxist Leninism.”

Greta Van Susteren — Fox News host:

“All the recounts and/or legal challenges”

Dr. Laura Schlessinger — radio talk-show host:

“My biggest surprise in this election season would be to find out that all military votes were counted; votes from deceased and non-citizens and incarcerated felons were not counted; nobody filled out ballots in advance; unions did not threaten their constituents to vote a certain way; no television “news” service trumped up embarrassment for the candidate of their non-choice; conservative women candidates were not called bitches or whores; no candidates lied; no last minutes back-room deals were made and no monies changed hands for votes or endorsements; activist groups did not act hysterical about a gaffe to tarnish anyone’s character; nobody stood in front of polling places to intimidate potential voters; the people’s voices are heard.”

Herman Cain — former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, radio host, and potential 2012 presidential candidate:

“If Barney Frank loses and here is why. A few months ago Barney Frank was very arrogant about his chances of winning and today he is in a political fight of his life for the seat. Then, when you consider the fact that a long term incumbent Barney Frank had to loan his campaign money — in this late date — that says that even he is worried about getting re-elected.”

Ron Bonjean — partner with the public relations firm Singer Bonjean Strategies and the owner of The Bonjean Company:

“The most surprising thing is that America wakes up and now has a 50-50 Senate tie.”

    CHRISTINE O’DONNEL SHOULD NOT BE COUNT OFF,… NOT JUST YET….PERHAPS A SURPRISE WINNING!???
    ————
    In addition;

    FEAR?,…OR MONUMENTAL TERROR ABOUT SARAH PALIN?…TAKE A PICK.
    ______________________________________________________________

    ‘POLITICO’,,,SUGGESTS THAT.”… GOP SHOULD STOP SARHA PALIN…,”for if she does adquire presidential nomination for the GOP,…Obama will crush her…”
    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1010/44449.html

    In addition, the newly adopted Obama worshiper ,Juan Williams said (praphrasing)”…even if she becomes a presidential candidate for the GOP …she is not match for Obama…”
    ———————-
    How about that?

    Well,well,well, are they terrorized by the good governor or not?

    All is pointed at one thing, CLEARLY SARAH PALIN IS THE ONLY ONE POLITICAL FIGURE THAT THE DNC AND ITS ASSOCIATES FEAR MOST!

    Any other potential candidate from the republican spectrum is not considered (BY THE LIBERAL-DEMOCRAT FACTIONS) powerful enough to give a good battle for the incoming 2012 presidential elections.

    Evidently they feel highly confortable to compete (and win) over anyone from the republican area,….. EXCEPT! GOV SARAH PALIN.

    That is the reason why even on NOV 1…even before the MID-TERM ELECTION STARTED they launch the idea with the hope that will take momentum against the good governor…

    .And why is this?….smple, BECAUSE THEY; KNOW THAT THE OLD SCHOOL OF DEAL-MAKERS / SOLD-OUT RINO-TYPE REPUBLICANS,….all that RANCID PACK OF POLILTICIANS THAT ARE USE TO DO ‘DEALS ‘ , and ‘ COMPROMISES’ with the POLITICS AS USUAL MIND-SET THERE IN WASHINGTON, they ALL are EXTREMELY afraid and terrorized (AS THE OBAMA GANG IS ) THAT Sarah Palin IS a very well ACCOMPLISHED FIGHTER AND ELIMINATOR OF CORRUPTION AND SO SHE HAS THE CAPACITY AND WAYS TO WIPE-OUT THE FRAUD AND CORRUPTION OUT OF WASHINGTON AS SHE DID IN THE GREAT STATE OF ALASKA …correct so far?

    As result, their CORRUPTED POLITICAL WORLD WILL CRUMBLE AND THE POWER WILL BE IN THE CORRECT PLACE….ON PEOPLE HANDS,…and so the american public will have their VOICES HEARD and taken into consideration SERIOUSLY….quite different than what is happening rigth now with the current INSIDIOUS AND DESTRUCTIVE SOCIALIST-ORIENTED OBAMA GANG.

    So there,…simple and clear.

    I don’t think that any of us needs a phD in astrophysics to understand this one…correct?

    Input anyone?

    Opinions welcome.

    My prediction for the biggest surprise will be when a drunk Rachel Maddow declares that she’s tired of living a lie and comes out of the closet with her love for Chris Matthews (not all of him, just his tingly leg).

  • J Baustian

    Biggest surprise? MSNBC goes dark on November 3rd. “No viewers, shrinking ad dollars, no influence on voters or policy, We can get a greater return on investment by manufacturing light bulbs. Plus Matthews, Olberman, Maddow and Schultz are a corporate embarrassment.”

    I predict that we won’t know the true tidal wave count until December. Which will put all the alphabet networks in overdrive ‘explaining’ to us ‘idiots’ how the tea party wasn’t as much of a force as first thought. which in turn will keep the dumbocrats in misery/hope for at least the next month or so….

    The “golden age of Obama” will be just another flash in the pan. It will mostly be undone and sent to the ash bin of history where it belongs. The party of “NO” can be proud that they said emphatically “NO” to the most destructive policies to most Americans in our history. Good night Chet, good night David.

    I am predicting that by the end of the night or early on the 3rd, we’ll be calling it erection day, not election day.

  • gringott

    I predict the media pundits will call this the death of the Republican Party because the Tea Party jammed the car into 2nd gear at 7200 rpm / 65 mph, burning the clutch, smoking syncros, tearing the tread right off the tires. “Has the Tea Party Driven the Car Down the Ditch and Into the Culvert?” will be the above the fold headline in the paper of record, the Carlos Slim owned NYT.

    Correct me if I am wrong. Thanks.

  • NeoKong

    I predict that on MSNBC they will all be drunk by ten PM to kill the pain.
    I predict that the leftie pundits will be asking each other if a sweeping Republican rout will somehow help Obama in the long run and they will be pointing to how Bill Clinton supposedly was wonderously successful with a Republican college.
    They will be trying to find anything that will give them a shred of hope that the age of Obama will still be golden.
