Welcome back to foxnews.com.
It's time now -- -- -- and is sort of the election ball out over negative Rich Lowry.
Who is that coming to us -- and -- that.
Got a lot of talk about well you know what -- a lot of a lot of bravado talk before the election.
A lot of people have high hopes of GOP had high hopes for that Romney didn't give up that way -- -- shot short about at least three million votes I guess on the on the on the popular vote but.
Far more worse on the Electoral College.
What's your take now.
Well it was a pretty.
-- that you -- president and you know it's it just it ships as often time most.
And do they don't break evenly so it ends up just as close is that.
Seems most of the way it can take decisively one way or the other and that Syria -- -- -- which -- topic was crazy and I shared to some extent.
Was that it tends -- hit the challenger's way because people know the incumbent they had their familiar with -- they have they have their their views -- that.
So if the incumbent below fifty to get a get a break each other's way in a calendar is is gonna -- out but the -- at all in the late break.
-- for the president and they'll be you know a lot of argument about why that's -- -- be settled.
Definitively but I think clearly that the hurricane and that the Chris Christie.
Warm words probably have something.
Yeah -- what did the media that the media -- -- went into tips the scales I guess in a certain way.
Did that help really what does it make a difference I mean wouldn't -- mattered at all.
And courage as we've discussed over and over again that's why edit this segment is named what it is that.
This is biased and absurd the atmosphere that everyone -- is whether I doubt is decisive in indeed given contest and that there's so many things at play here I don't think you point to the media says oh they did it for Obama and actually you know one -- one key figure -- have got a lot of attention yet.
If you believe the exit polls and they're always -- can be.
Not necessarily authoritative.
54% of people on Election Day approved by the president's job approval and if you said six months ago -- a year ago at -- -- approval on Election Day at least 54%.
The overwhelming conventional wisdom would be -- invulnerable there's just no way to beat him and another.
Back at that happened the last couple months from whatever -- a -- that discontent over.
-- discontent about the economy.
Kinda worn down a little bit and that that made a huge difference tale.
Have a -- -- thing because one of the things that you know.
That's bad kind of rattles people a lot is.
Natural disasters bomb or even even -- terrorist situation of 9/11 but.
It causes people about around.
Their leaders and it did.
Hurricane -- help them and obviously was in the northeast and -- the northeast period in which was in his in his camp already but did it make a difference -- -- I think it probably did you know for a few reasons one I don't think the going around spreading at this -- -- -- big bird and Romney did all that's very seasonal quite were very calming.
And believe -- -- -- -- -- made him right above his own campaign and that's been really appear presidential and then he had the you know that the great buddy moment with Chris Christie at the very same time Mitt Romney is trying to make the occasional -- actually a guy who can reach across the -- better.
That a president can and I would say.
Yeah that and that -- that that the media was pretty important because actually.
You know it a day or two after the storm and really became clear things -- really being handled.
Very well he's here in new York and then you know this president really -- responsibility for that.
I don't know but certainly I would argue if -- -- -- Republican.
President there would have been more focused nationally in the national media.
On you know how bad things were still on -- -- and in Staten Island.
And I just that just wasn't there -- Obama sort of got his nice.
And critically think about it nice photo op and -- everyone kind of moved on and at a photo -- was split import.
Yeah what hit in the President Obama does have a real light up like quotient and and people believed to like him and I can overcome a lot of whatever -- Failings he might have but certainly they would you like him you know.
The unit -- at the end of the favorable unfavorable for these two candidates were not that different meant so.
I think it was a -- like ability to turned out then job approval.
And the issues and just on the economy about something that that round they had to win the leading edge of the penalty wanna but just just narrowly.
-- -- -- Pounding you very much rich Lowery wouldn't -- -- on news watch on Saturday -- but from 3:4 eastern time and on Jon Scott as the host right there.
So -- checking happening.
