    Polls that oversample democrats and the lsm.

    Without all the oversampled polls Obama would be down by 5 to 8 points. And if you use only the polls of LIKELY VOTERS it's not even close once you remove the stacked numbers.

    I just don't believe the election is close at this point.

    Just imagine how you're going to feel when he gets reelected.

    Interesting show about OBL on the Smithsonian channel. It was pretty much the same as the show "The Run up to 9/11." Of course hind sight is always 20/20 but when one considers that after the Cole we did absolutely nothing it is not hard to believe that we were attacked on 9/11. A blatant act of war and we did nothing.

    Yeah, it's too bad that by the time we confirmed who was responsible GW Bush was in office and didn't respond.

    But what's that have to do with the sampling mix in polls?

    I'm trying to find even the slightest connection between Presidential election polling methods and your rant about the Cole and 9/11.

    But then I consider the SOURCE, and it's all crystal clear!

    Of course Clinton tried to do plenty, no thanks to Pubs' BS about wagging the dog and impeaching him for being a gentleman on a BJ, after 6 years of nothing on Whitewater. Pubs have been a disgrace and horror since Raygun and his pal Saddam...
