    Hello:

    I always take a quick look at the Gallup poll, just to make myself "happy" in the morning, but then I see there are three tabs. The Third tab says "Likely Voters (Traditional)" and has Obama/McCain statistically tied. Does anyone know the difference between the three?

    I cannot post links since I am new, but you can find these polls at gallup(dot)com under the section "Election 2008". The three tabs are across the top of the poll image.


    Obama has this in the bag, doesn't he???

    Obama doesn't have this in the bag until Jan 20th.

    Chris Rock to Obama: 'You can't beat white people, you can only knock them out' // Current

    I love the line about bacon. :lol:

    But yet you had issues with my video...

    Sorry but you can't see the plank in your eye while pointing out the speck in mine... The video was racist in the title and ALL the way through it.

    When you judge someone based on the color of their skin (something they have no control over) your racist.

    LOL - Rock is funny as hell! But seriously, Obama at 49 & McCain at 47 with a convergent trend - were did this come from?

    Couldn't agree more, Angel. Perhaps he didn't like your video because you are a woman, which isn't anything you had a choice over. Could you imagine though, if either Hillary or Palin got in? Black or white we would be in a heap of trouble, no offense to you. This race was a bit too close but I think even women voters could see the trouble with this, having not crossed over because of Palin - so you should get some credit for voting with your head.

    Always have and always will. I don't blindly follow... When it all comes down to it... I don't tend to follow.

    Obama's socialist views are starting to spread. "Plumber" Joe brought to surface what we here at USMB have been pointing out for months: Obama wants to redistribute wealth to benefit those that don't work for it. Even working class poor folks don't want that. They like tax cuts, but I promise you the single mom working 60 hours a week to make end's meat doesn't give two fucks about her neighbor who draws food stamps and welfare and sits on her ass all day.

    They don't work for it because they cannot get a job. Obama just wants to help us out and used a poor choice of words. I'll take the riches money and if the people who are better off don't care about their neighbors who need to use food stamps, then perhaps they should also liable for a greater burden of taxation. We are all Americans and in this together, but we don't like to share. What Obama will do is make this a non-issue, and share on our behalf. It's a win - win all the way around...
