    This is worse than the civil war... at least the South put up some kind of a fight. Soon, we'll be hearing about McCain conceding Alabama.

    If this is true, with all of the states McCain is conceding, the election day will look like this:

    A blog from George Stephanopolous is better than any FoxNews Alert!

    Do you not think that the accuracy of polls has increased over the past 60 years? Seriously.

    Yes, the New Hampshire Democratic primary was right on the nose as were the Presidential exit polls in 2004.

    Don't get me wrong, Obama will likely win but I wouldn't be at all surprised if the polls are off and McCain wins. This is not based on my "hope". It is based on the fact that we're are in unknown territory as follows:

    1. No sitting President or Vice President on the ballot
    2. First African American nominee
    3. First female Republican VP nominee
    4. Major Media in the tank for Obama
    5. Hillary Voters

    It could be a landslide for Obama or a total embarrassment to the media and pollsters. We'll know soon enough!

    1. A huge number of people voting against everything this admin and it's party are associated with and a pres candidate who voted with an incompetent 90% of the time.
    2. The color of his skin works for him more than against him and, thankfully, it's neutral in a lot of places;
    3. Female republican nominee who is great for "the base" but acts as voter repellant with respect to any but the wingnuts.
    4. A lot of the media is supporting Obama; and the right wing press is supporting McCain.... and b/c of that the more centrist or to the left media is bending over backwards to give media coverage to the stupidest and most venal allegations which is should dismiss and never cover again.
    5. Palin is repellant to Hillary voters, too.

    You don't really believe the exit polls were wrong, do you?

    It won't be a landslide or an embarrassment if voting machines actually reflect the votes they're supposed to.
