    Clearly, these are liberal-biased polls.

    I'm sure paperboy is desperately searching Drudge right now for the one poll that shows only a four point lead.

    exactly. it's not fair to have this poll posted when paperboy isn't here to counteract it. it's all about balance.

    It's... it's... it's not a poll, Elvis. Your ignorance is beginning to show. It's a summary of ALL of the polls. Now, I'm not on here showing how the latest CBS/NYTimes poll has 13+ for Obama, we're talking about a whole SLEW of new polls done in the past week in different states that show Obama ahead. It's not one poll, it's a bunch of polls. Go look for yourself, Elvis.

    I went into the TIPP poll and I showed you what they're doing wrong. Go to the Big Ten polls, go to Qunnipeac polls and show me what you disagree with in their polling methods that show Indiana, North Dakota, and Montana to be in play for Obama.

    Dick Morris, that fat piece of shit, even said today that if the polls don't start contracting for McCain by Tuesday/Wednesday of next week, it's over for him and it'll be a landslide for Obama.

    They were being sarcastic, weren't they?

    Surely...

    When it comes to Elvis, I dunno. The conservatives on this board confound me. Crimson I like, he gives rational, clear explanations to his ideas. Del is cool, and I can tolerate dilloduck. Sarge is just one of those loose cannon Vietnam Vets... he's really angry and he responds to every single post with anger and will insult you at every opportunity he gets. Elvis... I can't get a read on Elvis.

    Well, liberals or conservatives, it doesn't matter to me because I agree with both, depending on the issue.

    But to say that most of the polls are systematically biased isn't particularly intelligent.

    I wonder why the Republicans didn't complain about liberal media bias in 2004 when both Newsweek and the NYT showed Bush ahead by 4. I wonder why they didn't say "Don't trust the polls!" in 2004 when all of them showed Bush winning. I remember Zogby being a frequent guest on the Hannity show right after the RNC bounce for McCain. I wonder why he isn't invited anymore.

    Ignorance? NO. I didn't even look at it because I figured it was just one more poll that was favorable for Obama. I am sure you had no problem with TIPP when they had Obama up by seven a few weeks ago. here is a summary of all the polls from New Hampshire. Ask Hillary clinton if she believes the polls.
