While recent polling trends favor Mitt Romney, Gary Bauer has
concerns about Election Day "shenanigans" in what the leader of a
Messianic Jewish ministry believes could be an "apocalyptic
After nearly four years of Barack Hussein Obama in power, many
conservatives say next month's presidential election is the most
important election in American history. Jan Markell, founder and
director of Olive Tree Ministries, submits that the outcome
has spiritual ramifications.
"This is an apocalyptic election. It's clearly the
most important election in the history of America," she contends.
"I believe that America is under a strong, strong delusion. When we
see that nearly half of America is okay with the current
administration that has this nation absolutely in tatters and
shambles … and is willing to re-elect Barack Hussein Obama -- to me
it's just absolutely delusional that they need to have this
socialist continue to be the president."
Markell points to the Bible, which is clear that regardless
of who wins the election, America will eventually come under God's
judgment as the end of the age draws closer.
But a conservative activist and pro-family leader is encouraged
by a recent RealClearPolitics compilation of national
polls that shows Mitt Romney maintaining a narrow lead over
President Obama, with Gallup tracking polls giving the Republican a
six-point lead -- well outside the margin of error.
"This election clearly isn't over yet,"
Gary Bauer, chairman of the Campaign for Working Families, recognizes. "I
worry about the cheating. I worry about other shenanigans taking
place on Election Day. But I also think that no one can deny what
the trend is right now, and the trend is clearly in Governor
Bauer is particularly encouraged by the response of focus groups
following Tuesday night's debate.
"Focus groups done by both Fox News, that's conservative, and by
MSNBC, that's liberal, showed undecided voters in those focus
groups moving strongly in favor of Governor Romney," he relays. "So
I think there's a trend in place. It's going to take some event to
interrupt or reverse that trend."
If values voters come out en masse to the polls November 6,
Bauer believes Romney will win both the popular
vote and the electoral vote. Two prominent Christian
evangelists -- Dr.
Billy Graham and
Dr. David Jeremiah -- have both made pleas to that voting bloc
in recent days.
