    Well, that's ok then. Cuz we all know it's not about electing the best person to run the fucking country. It's about 'winning'.

    Fucking politicians are a bunch of lying shits... and those who goose step along behind them... scum.

    Clearly these polls are important because nothing will change in the next year and a half.

    I agree. I supported Meg in the race for Governor. They sent Jerry back. I thought the first time was bad. Go figure.:confused:

    I love polls.

    This one is really interesting. In a country that is roughly 34/35/31 Republican/Democratic/Independent they poll a sample that is 32/22/41 and find that Obama leads by less than about 5%. Somehow you see this as proof that the Republicans don't have a chance, while everyone with half a brain sees it as a sign that Obama is in serious trouble.

    Welcome to the real world.

    You are the one failing to understand what it means. As you rightly point out the largest section polled was independents. Assume all Democrats vote for Obama and all republicans Vote against him, and all that matters is the Independents.

    Among those independents Obama's Numbers are not looking good at all.

    Keeping in mind that it will not be his fault. It will either be the fault of Bush or the Republicans. The sad fact is that he is able to convince the drones that this is a fact.

    It is a "Sad Fact". And it is the reality.

    The fantasy is that the Conservative Republican Heroes that proceeded the Obama administration had nothing to do with the present situation.

    And the fact is they had everything to do with it.

    The Grover Norquist (Starve the beast)/Milton Friedman (Freemarketeering!) meme has failed yet again..and more miserably then last time.

    If you are referring to the massive housing market fail - the one where foreclosures are meted out so as not to devastate completely the world economy - for example, there was little free about that market.
