October Surprise: Hurricane Sandy!

Hurricane Sandy is the October Surprise.

The eastern half of the United States carries about 45% of the population. The presidential election relies on the swing states that President Barack Obama carried when he was then candidate in 2008.

The states that are in play are New Hampshire, Ohio, Virginia, and North Carolina.

Each state is a toss up!

Early voting is underway and many Americans are casting their votes. The storm could delay early voting and yes it could also the general election.

Republican Mitt Romney is leading in likely voters. President Barack Obama, incumbent Democrat is leading  in register voters/early voters.

The Republicans are hoping that Mitt Romney carries the two prized states Ohio and Florida.

The hurricane could impact the election. With potential power outages and damages to be expected to be in the billions, President Barack Obama has to take the role of commander-and-chief.
We're taking a break from attacking Obama for a few hours! The hurricane is approaching!
Mitt Romney and the president canceled events near the impact zones.

Politics taken a break for now!

So far many governors are urging their state residents to take cover! The potential of a hurricane and rain/snow mixture could create a major storm.

The states on the east coast carry a 1/3 of the nation's population.

The stock market is close. That could impact the nation's economy.

Hurricane Sandy, you got them on their knees.
