The radical right has been counting their chickens for months now but may be dissapointed come hatching (election) day for two reasons. First, the polls have historically undercounted Dems. In 2000 for instance the polls gave Bush a five to six point lead over Gore all the way up to the election but low and behold Gore got more votes, before he was cheated out of the Presidency. Second, polls are conducted by phone but only land lines are used. Those people who only have cell phones are never polled. Many younger voters don't have land lines and are therfore not polled. Younger voters made up a large percentage of President Obamas' winning coalition.
