    The above is from a Hillary Clinton fansite/blog/whatever you want to call it (but call it Democrat).

    Interesting take - using sales as an election barometer.

    As for Hillary- no doubt wants to run in '12 and who would she happily contest than Republicans in office McCain/Palin. Its been suggested that an all female Presidential campaign could be in store for '12 with a Palin vs Clinton showdown.

    Interesting take. If this is so, that only lays claim to the fact that the liberal media is really skewing the polls. That or the Repubs are just not being asked.

    FWIW, there was no exit poll when I early voted. I would not have told them how I voted anyway.

    I had the news on as background noise earlier and caught the info that this year there are over 700polls this far in the election. In the previous election year in '04 there were just under 300 total.

    As the news went from FOX to Nightly News with Couric her opening line was "...and a new poll out today has Obama leading by...". The thing that clicked in her sentence was "new". Aha! That's it! The letftist media FIND these polls and information and use them as they need them to pursuade watchers - propaganda. So, BO could very well be leading in polls, and because of such shoddy "pollsters" and their lack of credible information, thats where we get such HUGE margins. And this of course is done on purpose to mislead, whether its the pollsters (probably) and the MSM using them (even more likely) to beat down to the masses "this is what's happening, game over". So, the media just takes this random information because it suits their agenda and "reports" it.

    What I gather is, anyone with an internet connection and a keyboard can make a poll. Anyone with an internet connection and keyboard can be "a blogger". Anyone with an internet connection, regardless of credibility, history, affiliation, personal standards or education can puke out information to be construed as anything to anyone. Credentials and credibility be damned, anything on the internet is used as fact by the media in order to push their point., election takes place....

    Ok, lets say McCain pulls out a win, just like in '04 when the election was "stolen", you can surely bet that liberals/democrats/left MSM are just building up this bubble, keep pumping air into this cathartic bubble (bubble sound familiar?) that when BO loses, there is going to be such upheavel and anger. Because after all, BO was leading by this "huge margin" that the Republicans just had to have cheated in order to win. Thus creating yet another scapegoat and target of hatred like the did with Bush. Democrats are such con artists and the citizens are just pawns that keep suckling from the devil's teet. There will be charges of racism. Tampering with ballots. Repressed ballots. Lets not forget the all popular conspiracy theory. It will just be anything and everything that the Democrats can on the Republicans as far as charges go, they will reach into their pockets and do it. More smoke, more lights to create mayhem.

    Edit: geez alou - sorry, I didn't know I had a conspiracy theory section in me but it seems I do! :1zhelp: :p

    Speaking of polls, not once have I ever been polled. I imagine there's going to be a large generation in gap in the number of people reached vs the number of people there actually are. Demographics, geographical location play a huge part in polls and fact of the matter is, a lot of people are not reached and its those "silent" groups that change the numbers.

    There is an annecdote in which someone asked a New York liberal friend about the Regan election. The NYL friend responded, "I don't know how he won, no one I talked to voted for him..."
