"My theory is this. The pollsters were actively trying to influence the elections by making it seem that Kerry had ALREADY won."
What is funny is that it had the opposite effect. We went into high gear making phone calls encouraging people to vote. Most of the people I spoke to were very determined to cast their vote for Pres. Bush. It was so cool having the people you call give you the pep talk.
I always vote. No matter what. At least I have done what I could to avert disaster.
