    I think you're off base. You think that many people are going to lie to pollsters? I think that's goofy.

    If it hadn't happened in past elections, you might be right to think it goofy.

    But it has.

    I'm glad someone else gets it. I get tired of all the "OMG OBAMA IS UP BY 9 IN THE POLLS" posts from Bobo and jillian. The truth is he's up by 9 in ONE poll, and down in one, and tied in one. It's all over the place.

    Oh, and in the poll he's up by 9 in, 38% of those polled were Dems, while only 28% were Repubs, and 29% were Independents. Of the Independents, 46% said they usually lean Democratic, and only 28% said they usually lean Republican. The poll itself wasn't biased, but clearly the people being polled are.

    The truth is, everyone on this board is acting like a bunch of fucking idiots, no matter where the polls put their candidate.

    Gallup's has them tied.

    McCain's +3 in ONE DAY! Keep in mind it's a 3-day average - McCain must have had incredible numbers last night :clap2:

    maybe you could let John Kerry in on that secret.. He won all three debates with Bush and still lost the election.

    and :lol: yes grasp that ONE poll that show McCain ahead... I'm sure it comforts you like a warm blanket.

    And...

    The polls may be wrong, or the final count may be wrong. You don't know which. I would bet the final count is wrong.

    If Leher calls McCain on his statement about the fundamentals of the economy being strong, I'd say McCain's pretty much screwed. Pretty hard to defend a statement like that in the face of this economic crisis where even the president is saying we're on the brink of a meltdown.

    Right now no one really cares about Iraq per se, so his strong point is probably going to be unusable.
