    LOL that negative stuff sure doesn't describe the McCain/Palin voters I've met. They are so excited for Tuesday to get here and prove all the polls wrong they are willing to crawl over glass to get there. They are pissed but very optimistic that the vote will go their way. I'd file that whole news article under attempted voter suppression and from what I hear the GOP is not going to sit back and hand this one over. I was shocked 4 years ago so anything can happen.

    This Obama backer has a serious case of election fatigue. Even seeing campaign signs in people's lawns is exacerbating it.

    My support for Obama has not waned, but my energy is just being sapped by all the TV shows, ads, discussion at work and outside of it. I was serious when I said I wanted to hide under a rock until Obama reaches 270 on Tuesday. It's not out of fear, though; it's out of overload.

    I'm bi partisan and I'd fall under the category of complete fatigue as well when it comes to the presidential election. I've done my own research. Pushed aside the nonsense and I'm ready to vote. I'm very passionate about Prop 8 and have worked very hard to defeat it so I'm a bit more emotionally invested in that on a personal level. I can already feel the tension mounting waiting for those results.
