bump and praying
With the notorious oversampling of Democrats, these polls mean McCain is AHEAD not two points down.
In the final hours of voting?
looks like CNN is getting ready for a face saving measure. They are getting themselves ready to do the “too close to call” bit tonight, you can see it plain as day.
“final hours of voting” ??? it just started three hours ago......
Voting and praying in a deep blue state.
Re: CNN trying to save face?
Short answer: Yes.
Even with the sampling flaws in this poll it shows at least some movement toward McCain. I don’t think most of the polls are catching “The Surge” that will carry him to victory in most of the red states and perhaps even a couple of blue ones.
For anyone following/observing Pennsylvania results, thanks.
Final hours of voting b/c Florida has had early voting for weeks.
I am hopeful that the grown-up taxpaying citizens, take the wheel from the yound idealist, welfare Obamabots before it is too late.
Hopefully Middle America got religion these last few days.
It looks like it. The only one of those states that could possibly not go to the republican is Nevada, but I still think he has a good chance there also.
The Florida Panhandle (Northwest) is in the Central Time Zone and they are, for that reason, are the last to be counted.
The Panhandle is very strongly conservative and pro-military....so BO will need a much bigger lead than that.
There are many thousands of people who never voted for Bush, but will vote for McCain.
In close elections, this margin could amount to 2%-4% of the popular vote and easily could swing the election to McCain.

Any Illinois, NW Indiana, southern Wisconsin Freepers going to head on down to Grant Park to be with Obama at his “victory” celebration rally tonight? They expect hundreds of thousands to be there.
I can’t believe the chutzpah (sp?) of Obama to have a huge victory rally before the election is decided. If he’s expecting to make a prime time victory speech to his loyal fans, he might have a long wait. Suppose it’s a long election night. He could be there till 3 a.m. waiting for the election returns to be counted in tight states. What the heck would he say to people before the result is known? Or is he just assuming he will win a landslide?
Stay tuned. I wonder if his internal polls tell him it’s in the bag, or if he just has the chutzpah(sp?) of an arrogant politician.
What’s with this guy and huge crowds anyway? He lapped it all up in Berlin with 200,000 people. He couldn’t make his convention speech in the convention center, instead, he had to be in a stadium with 75,000 of his closest friends. And now tonight hundreds of thousands will be there to hear him.
Yeah, is there such a thing as good spam posting? If so, the pissant get the crown!
