    I love Clarence Page. His opinions are always straight to the point.

    There are just as many blacks voting for Obama BECAUSE he's black as there are whites voting against him.

    The 'Bubba' vote isn't news to anyone. 90% of them voted for Bush in '04. McCain isn't going to gain much, if any, over what Bush had in that category.

    On the otherhand, the demographics of people who didn't vote in the last election and will vote for Obama, or who voted for Bush but will now vote for Obama, or who voted for Bush but won't vote in this election are tremendous.

    These include:

    An almost certain turnout of African-Americans at a rate of >90% with >95% voting for Obama. (Could change the South)

    Young voters.

    Hispanic voters who are overwhelmingly anti-Republican due to the immigration issue.

    People who were previously disillusioned by the election process.

    People who are disgusted with the Republicans because of corruption

    People who are disgusted with the Republicans because of the war

    People who are disgusted with the Republicans because of economy

    People who are just plain disgusted with the Republicans

    I predict a landslide for Obama.:clap2:
