    Here is a paragraph that really stuck out:

    An FDR or Kennedy? Im supposed to believe this guy is independent? right....

    Why do i have a feeling this poll was taken in Massechusetts or something.

    Also why dont they poll more than 1000 people. i mean do they really think only 1000 people are going to reflect what the nation is thinking?

    BTW this is the same poll the Dems at DU think is showing the right wing media bias from yahoo. Apparently Bush isnt losing in landslide proportions so they are right wing. This election is going to be so sweet. 11 days!

    Bill O'Reilly shared a few scientifically taken polls that show Bush up 49-46, still within the margin of error. He also read letters from dozens of people accusing him of bias, and only half of them said it was a conservative bias. He seemed amused that all these people saw the same show, but half thought he was a strong conservative and the other half thought he was 'such a liberal.'

    The media polls are a sham. They show their boy being in the lead because the common folk tend to side with the perceived winner.

    Well, in my little neck of the woods, they appear to have polled a Mr. Tracy, and a Miss (or Ms.) Poppins.

    I've been polled before. Plus the averge poll is about 1000 people. Chances are you won't know anyone who gets polled.

    National polls do not matter.

    polls in general do not matter. Dukakis led Bush Sr by 14 late in the polls during 88. Look where that got him. :gives:

    Only poll that matters is Nov 2nd.
