    Gallup Final Presidential Estimate: Obama 55%, McCain 44%

    Includes allocation of undecided voters.

    I hope this holds true.

    Me too! That's close to the 60% prediction I made for him on Aug. 29th when Palin the Parrot was announced as the Grandpa in Chief Assistant.

    If polls hold, Obama could win California by the largest margin (possibly 30 points) since FDR.

    Turnout could be 80% or greater in some places, numbers not seen since the 1960s.

    McCain's holding out for the Bradley effect
    where people SAY they're gonna vote for Obama
    But when they get into the voting booth They just can't vote for a black man

    So the McCain camp is hoping for a bunch of racists to go to the polls on election day

    HOPE. Didn't the Republicans ridicule Obama for hope earlier this year?

    The Republicans have stooped to the utmost low in politics in this campaign. Check out this deplorable ad against Obama:



    Look specifically at the 16 second mark and tell me what it spells in the audience.

    And look at this one:

    typical Republican tactic....trying to get the "Bubba's" of the nation to hate a black man stepping higher than his "place".
    And what is so funny is that the very people that the Republicans are able to manipulate and tap into their hate....those are the same people that the Republicans turn around and screw later.

    And yes, I saw how they did the clever editing and shadowing in the audience in the first video to spell the word "HANG". ....typical subliminal tactic.

    That seems like such a small effect, counting on pollsters being lied to,which doesn't seem higher than statistical error for any given poll.
    I'd say look to the states McCain just has to win. Florida, Georgia, Pennsylvania, or Ohio. In those states we might see some weirdness.

    They are stealing their "Risk" message from the Canadian Conservative Party. LOL

    I think that the consensus is that there will be little, if any, so-called Bradley effect in this election.

    I'd just like to say at this point that I want to vote for Nosuchperson's pic in the wet underwear for something. Pulitzer prize in photography?

    Thank you for indulging that election day outburst. Now back to regularly scheduled opinions ...
