    Interesting results since Democrats have 54 percent to 30 percent lead among the 1.4 million voters who have gone to the polls early. Though I believe Republicans lead in absentee ballots.

    Is the first sign that the curtain is being pulled back on the Wizard of O?

    No no,

    They took their normal poll (~1000 voters) and of those pulled out the numbers that had voted already (a small fraction) and of that small fraction, McCain had 48-45% lead. The MOE was very wide since it was a fraction of their normal poll.

    Of all respondents, both those who had voted and those who hadn't, Obama led by 3.

    And another poll with similarly small numbvers of voters who had already voted show:

    If Obama loses, will his followers finally drink the Kool-Aid and join their brethen at the Hale-Bopp comet in the sky?

    If Obama assumes his rightful place as King of the World, we might all have to castrate ourselves!

    Are you sure you're not one of my kids? They're always catching me on a technicality when I try to tell a joke.

    Yes, the followers of Jim Jones drank the Kool-Aid (laced with cyanide). It was the Heaven's Gate cult that met the Hale Bopp comet in the sky. They drank Kool-Aid and then ingested phenobarbital mixed with vodka and used plastic bags secured around their heads to induce asphyxiation.

    A couple more polls like this in a couple more battleground states and I'll be buying some "Intrade McCain" stock!

    It's interesting, some surveys show that blacks and young voters are the ones voting early (and those two groups are supposed to favor Obama heavily), yet McCain in a few states. Very interesting, really.

    I don't see it actually happening, but if I were Obama, I wouldn't order a big huge celebration for Tuesday night, either.
