    Like I already said in response to the original poster, those polls were conducted and completed before the announcment of Palin.

    Which polls? Gallup daily is a three day rolling, and this is today's graph so today's point (6 point spread for Obama) should be the result of three days post-Palin announcement.

    Polls don't mean anything, there is another today that shows an eight point lead for obama and a third showing a one point lead and rasmussen has a three point lead. All for Obama. The original post was a little over the top and what the hell. At least I didn't start a new thread for it. ;) :)

    Sorry, that looked like the same poll someone posted the other day, which only went through Thursday.

    My apologies.

    If she'd only wear something a little more comfortable, I'm sure she'd give many of us a big boost.

    One poll have hussein up, the other has McCain up. Do you really think all those polls are honest? I think the poll takers can get exactly the results they want, and it has nothing to do with the truth.

    We'll find out how the people really feel in November.

    I can attest to that. I wasn't even aware of the Kos site until I found this message board and I still don't know what DU is. I'm lame I guess. I watch various debates and read actual voting records and other official documents to form my opinions.

    since pale rider likes the zogby poll so much I found one of my own.

    it's not anymore relevant or reliable but it's pretty:

    Gallup Daily: Obama Maintains 6-Point Lead, 49% to 43%

    September 1, 2008
    Gallup interviewing from Friday through Sunday gives Barack Obama an official 4-point post-Democratic convention bounce in support from national registered voters, and John McCain a 2-point bump following his vice presidential announcement.

    To tell you the truth, I don't like polls. I've seen how easily they can be manipulated. I posted the Zogby because it came up on my yahoo home page and had McCain ahead, which I believe he is. I don't believe all these liberal polls that have hussein ahead. All they have to do is poll a liberal demographic, and there you have it. Their one sided poll.

    The real and only test in my opinion is when the polls open for people to go in and vote a real ballot, and I'm quite sure at this point McCain/Palin are going to be our next White House representatives.
