    Overview: Growing Doubts About McCain's Judgment, Age and Campaign Conduct

    Ouch. I know Pew, they have a good track record. They felt Bush would win 2004 by 2 and 2000 by 2 also. Even if they're off by 2 here, that would be a +16 for Obama.

    AMAZING how he isn't here yet again reporting on this.

    Of course, he's probably going to find a poll out there that polls only Republicans and show how McCain has now taken a slim lead. Of course, the problem with that is that the poll only questioned REPUBLICANS.

    Yeah we all know about polls. I have heard that these polls (which they always do go democrat). In fact, one pundant says these polls are so out of wack by the enthusiasm of Obama supporters--ready & willing to answer any phone call, type in any text message--that the Obama campaign is starting to have some concerns.

    If this race turns on Obama--which I think there is a good chance of, I will call it the "Caller I.D. effect". How many Americans are really not interested in talking to pollsters. I know I won't--"it's none of their business who or what I vote for." Nor will I answer phone calls--(caller I.D) if I don't know who they are.

    We saw this in 04 with Kerry vs. Bush. All day long on election day--we heard that Kerry was the certain winner--because of the exit polling data. LOL--it's because Kerry voters were more than willing to run up to an exit pollster & tell them who they voted for. Upps--these pollsters forgot to count the 4 million people who refused to stand around an answer their stupid questions.

    I believe this race is a lot closer than what we're to believe.

    Just trying to help- Pundit not Pundant. Unless you mean Pedant. I've been called a Pedant and a Pundit, but I don't think either apply.

    Yeah, I'm sure you did hear that from Rush or Hannity.

    Read it and weep, bro.

    White House 2004

    Look at the sea of red for the 2004 election.

    Yeah, look at the Newsweek poll giving Bush a 6 point lead over Kerry not even a week before the election. The only polls that showed Kerry winning were FoxNews polls... (odd).

    Of course they are. There were 500,000 Floridians who were registered Democrats who didn't vote in 2004. If they would have, Kerry would have won Florida and the election. BUT - Democrats are so excited right now, believe me, they're going to vote. Every single poll out there that talks to registered Republicans finds that only a fraction of them are very excited about their candidate while 86% of Democrats are excited by Obama.

    You do?

    Really?

    What swing states do you think McCain will win? He's already conceding Colorado, New Mexico, Iowa and New Hampshire.
