They stole Illinois and Texas too in 1960. They do it over and over. The last relatively close election won by a Republican was Nixon's over Humphrey in 1968. But I really dont think it was within the margin of error-enough for them to cheat enough so it mattered.
Look at the crap they tried at the last minute against GHWBush in 1992 when running against Clinton. Apparently he was going to win the election until Lawrence Walsh, the "independent" prosecutor came out with a phony indictment of Weinberger--the weekend before the election.
They are evil cheaters and the GOP is too much the patsy.. Only firm rules about fraud-proofing elections will stop this. But htey will yell louder than a stuffed pig. Ashcroft was the foolish gentleman in 2000 when a Senate seat was stolen from him by Jean Carnahan in Missouri. He did not contest it though he should have. Did you notice how nice the Democrats have been to Mr. Ashcroft ever since for being such a gentleman?

This is just a gut feeling but I have a lot more faith in the GOP this time around. I wouldn't underestimate this group. I think they are either holding an ace in the hole or their polls, the real ones, show an overwhelming victory.
On the flip side, if they do steal this one, God help us all.
