    I forget, which one is running for president Mumbles or the Barracuda?

    You would think it is reversed.:cuckoo:

    See, you don't know the facts, but I don't love it, because you are proof the typical American voter is dumb, and that scares me.

    I know, it's so rare... usually it's rabid righties... :clap2:

    Although, you can't really dispute the facts in his comments... since they all happened. I can see where one might take issue with the delivery, but that shoudn't trouble you.

    Sorry about the delivery, but they make me so mad. I don't want to come off as calm when I'm mad, or visa versa. So when you see me cursing, it's intended.

    1st... it is a poll.. polls are not inherently the whole truth... nor are they really accurate...

    2nd... 'of all those you talk with'??? I don't think the tinfoil hat troll brigade is a good judge of the pulse of the country

    Sealy,

    The polls all added up to <90% before (the split would be 45/43 or thereabouts). There was a huge undecided (unhappy right) factor. Now the polls add up to a more typical 96-98% (a 50/46 split for example.)

    McCain managed to pick up all the unhappy right voters. It isn't that Obama voters switched, it is that a hefty chunk (5%) was *that unhappy* with McCain before.

    When someone is puking all over themselves its best just to let them do it instead of trying to clean up all the little chunks while its still happening. :lol:

    To my liberal friends, just remember when you're talking to a cocky know it all sure of himself con who knows what he's talking about, this is what it sounds like.
