    Indeed......and ALL based upon the 2008 voter turnout.

    Thus............. Election model with 100% success rate for past 30 years predicts Romney victory | The Raw Story

    This place is going to be a fucking morgue in here on election night with actual suicides happening as the final results are tallied.

    But I'll be here for sure............slamming the salt in the wound with a sledgehammer...........

    Of course.. They're trying to make Conservatives think that there's no way they'll win.

    Polls are supposed to reflect public opinion, not shape it.

    Is YOUR opinion shaped by polls?

    How about LIKELY VOTERS with 35% Democrats and 31% Republicans? That gap of 4 points is less than half the 2008 gap,

    so all those who insist the enthusiasm for Obama will be less this time, consider yourselves placated:

    Obama up by 3, and leading or tied in every category surveyed re: domestic and foreign policy.

    Ouch.
