    This is the same organization that said only 6% of scientists were Republican.

    I have a hard time believing them. Seems the 6% number is vastly overstated.

    Okay, so let's pretend the gap between GOP and Democrat was twice as big as it should be,

    and then adjust the poll.

    Obama is ahead by 5. Happy now?

    And yet it has been proven that 6% number was more or less pulled out of a hat by horrific manipulation of numbers, and you still want to make that number lower. And that's the issue with hacks like you, even full blown lies are not good enough, you want to make things sound as bad as possible for people you don't agree with regardless if there is even an ounce of reality to back you up or not.

    There is good reason you are a joke on these boards.

    I'm not looking forward to another 4 years of a recession/depression, no.

    I doubt Mitt could do better seeing their policies are near identical, but at least I don't pretend one man is better than the other.
