    OK, the IBD and AP polls are biased. I guess we should only look at unbiased poll sources, such as ABC and CNN, huh? In the last several elections these polls have been way off, favoring the Democrats more than the actual election results. It's not over yet, and I think you Dems are getting nervous.

    yeah and the IBD was what? within 1/3 of a percentage point in accuracy in 2004? davids believes the ones that say Obama has a double digit lead and wants everyone to think it's over.

    It's far from over, and I think many voters -- including moderate Democrats -- will get in the voting booth and decide they just can't vote for Obama. Thanks for the reminder on the accuracy of the IBD polls in 2004.

    Its not being nervous, its just plain STUPID to count your chickens before they hatch. I always thought it would be a very close race and no matter what these polls say I still think it will be close.

    Don't underestimate republican voter suppression efforts.

    Besides, as paperboy would point out, the IBD poll shows this is neck and neck!
