    Those Qunnipiac polls are out of line with most others, but unless Mac starts to move in either MI, PA, or CO, Obama will be declared the winner by midnight eastern time election night.

    Don't forget Indiana, Florida, and Virginia which are leaning blue.

    Some of the first time in 20-40+ years.

    I don't know. To be honest I think if Obama has a 5 point lead in all these swing states in nov, he will lose all of them.

    As far as this country has come with race, the bradley effect has pretty much take it's toll in every major election. If Obama loses, I hope it's not due to this because racism should be a dead issue but when you face reality it isn't.

    If you recall a poll as of late, 6% of people would not vote for Obama because he's black

    Those are just the ones with the guts to tell the pollster they wouldn't vote for him because he's black.

    So if Obama does lose this election, one of the top reasons (though perhaps not the only) will be race.

    And if he wins, one of the top reasons will be race. Do you know how many blacks registered to vote just to put a black man in office?

    I just hope that the Obama campaign believes these numbers and acts accordingly. :D

    People registering to vote is a good thing.

    People voting against somebody because of race is a bad thing.

    So is people voting FOR somebody because of race. It's the same as voting against the other guy because of his race.

    Race also played into the primaries, as well. Obama received 90 percent of the Afrian American vote. If Obama wins the general, I don't think itwill be because of race as the poster after you suggested. If he loses, it will be one of the factors, for sure. But how much of a factor? I don't know how anyone would be able to tell.
