There are gpoing to many, many polling firms, in fact all that are going to have egg on their face after this election. I could get better results pissing into the wind than these liberal pollsters. Bottom line, McCain/Palin win on election day.

In the words Of Gavin Newsome.

“It’s all over now. It’s gonna happen!”

That pesky little thing called the actual vote stands between this eventually being found to be fact and not just fictional propaganda, readily manufactured to serve an ignominious end.

If this sounds plausible to you than you are a dumbass.

Here are the percentages by party:

That’s really all that needs to be said.

Did a quick "back of the Excel spreadsheet" calculation on this: they sampled at least 16% more D than R and likely 20% more (assuming 30% Independents, 10% D and 10% R voting for the opposite candidate).

Media is putting out some ugly numbers. Bush lost Oregon by a small margin in ‘00 and 4% in ‘04. One poll has Obama up 19% here and Gordon Smith trailing by 5. Losing Oregon to Obama is not a big deal. Losing Senator Smith and having a filibuster proof Senate is.

And as planned this goes in to the RCP mix and jumps Husseins average up. Believe me the left is working in concert with all the media and other liberal pollsters to orchestrate the widest possible lead on paper they can, for the express reasson of depressing the turnout.

They will all have to answer for it later.

Heh. A registered voter poll. If Obama is really ahead by 16 then he's ahead with likely voters by 20+. Does any one outside Pew think that's really credible?

Wow - 15% more D than R and that’s with 5% unaccounted for.
My quick calculation was 16% at a minimum, which may be the truth number accounting for the undeclared 5%. Amazing amounts of nonsense this year!

They saw the RCP average tightening and couldn’t handle. So they had to produce a poll that would bring it back to Hussein +8.

When both candidates were in States carried by Bush in ‘00 and ‘04, the media wouldn’t shut up about it.

Today — they’re both in Pennsylvania, a Gore/Kerry state. Haven’t heard any mention of the fact that Obama’s spending his last days defending Kerry territory.

If Obama really is up by 20+, he shouldn't need to spend time playing prevent defense in PA. It should be in the bag! That's how we know Pew is flat out lying about the spread.

It used to be the voters choice was reflected in polls...

Now the polls reflect what the voters should choose....

And ain’t it a damn shame that all the media and pollsters are in the tank for Obama?

God willing....McCain/Palin 08!!!!

Tell me. If Obama is this landslide winner Pew claims he is, why does he need to spend time on an expensive half hour infomercial this week to make the sale? I mean, isn't it already apparent? So why even do it?

So much for taking the “high road.” Not mentioning Rev. Wright was very noble of Sen. McCain, and very stupid. I though he was a warrior, not a wimp. He should be ashamed of accepting the nomination and failing to run a good campaign.
