    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.

    Yes--It is looking so bad for the Democrats that even their last declarations of hope sounds futile. "Dems have been under counted since 2000" "Only conservatives use landlines" Translation: "Flee for your life--A right wing Cat 5 Hurricane is coming!"

    The right is always counting their chickens before they hatch.
    The increased tax revenue from tax cuts?
    The benefits to americans by outsourcing?
    The benefits to Americans of free trade?
    The benefits of deregulation?

    And some chickens they only talk about.
    SS reform?
    Smaller govt?
    Debt/defecit reduction?
    Not being the police force of the world?
    Let businesses fail that can't make it?

    Arnold and Sarah were both examples of counting their chickens before they hatch as well.
