    I deny I'm in denial. :D

    Right now I'm keeping an eye on exit polls from early voting states. If I was Obama I'd be a little concerned about what they've shown thus far in Florida and Nevada.

    Haven't seen any other exit polls for any other early voting battleground states.

    And about 17% of the Louisiana voters are undecided or won't say. I have every expectation that most of the undecideds will break for McCain. And the race *is* tightening because of those voters making their decision.

    Obama isn't getting Louisiana or Arizona. I prefer being a realist about these things. But it is nice to watch them squirm. ;)

    I about dropped my salad last night, I was in the kitchen listening to our local news.

    They said the early voting shows that Obama is ahead of McCain in our state.

    This is in Indiana, a state that's redder than newsboys face after Tuesday night!


    Now, I take this with a grain of salt, nothing is solid until November 4th....

    Oh yeah, Obama isn't going to win those states.

    Its hilarious however, to watch McCain pour campaign resources and money into defending Arizona. :badgrin:

    It's a statistical tie, with obama being up 3 points (within the margin of error) but that is pretty amazing, isn't it?

    And I hope you're right about newspaper delivery boy's face.

    I won't trust it til wednesday.

    I assume this is based on party, not which candidate is being voted for.

    Here in Florida, Democrats are ahead in early voting by about 5% but an exit poll by LA Times showed McCain leading 50-45.

    In Nevada Democrats are way ahead of Republicans in early voting but an exit poll showed Obama ahead by only 2 points.

    We all hate polls. But, when 95% of them favor Obama, and you always go with the 5%, it makes you seem silly. Here are some facts that should shut you up for the rest of the day:

    Voter registration smashes records
    States say 188 million have signed up to vote

    46 million more people registered for this election than in 04.

    High turn out NEVER helps the GOP.

    Check this out. Number of registered Democrats has grown by nearly 5 percent since 2004. During the same time, the GOP lost more than 2 percent of its registered voters.”

    In states where registration is recorded by party, including eight key states that could decide the election, voters have signed up Democratic in the past six months by a margin of nearly 4-to-1.

    Battleground: That registration edge - First Read - msnbc.com


    I'm ready to say it is OVER! Stick a fork in McCain.
