Curious how well everybody's crystal balls are working. Looking for a difference in percentage of popular votes not the electoral figures.

McCain by 5 pts or less
McCain by more than 5 points
Obama by 5 points or less
Obama by 5 points or more

Well if you read my thread I just posted, my guess is Obama is going to win by a landslide due to "electronic voting"....:twisted:

I agree trik, but I don't think the voting machines will have anything to do with it. Were looking at the Carter/Reagan scenario all over again.

I think Obama will win the popular vote but John McCain will win the Electoral Vote. Especially when you add all the votes for Obama from dead people, invisible people and all the people with multiple personalities who get to vote 8 or 9 times.

If I am right..........thank God this country is a Republic and not a Democracy. :)

But I still voted McCain by 5 points or less. :)

If I am wrong..............this country is SCREWED!

I expect Obama to win well over 300 electoral votes. I hope I'm wrong, but the state tracking polls are convincing, IMO.

Yes, the state tracking polls were dead on for the last two elections that had Gore and Kerry winning also.

Unfortunately I see this all coming down to Ohio, and a supreme court case being made for all the ineptitude that's come to light. My wife voted yesterday and they didn't check her ID or verify who she was in any manner except to open the roll and have her sign it. If this election is to come down to the good and honest nature of citizens in Ohio, we're screwed.

Ohio doesn't do IDs, unless your signature doesn't match the signature you have on file with the Secretary of State. I never had to show IDs when I voted up there.

On a similar note, I think a lot of the ineptitude would be eliminated if we had YOUNG and TECHNOLOGICALLY INTELLIGENT people volunteer to work the polls. Unfortunately in most states the poll workers are all elderly volunteers who have done it for years and are completely confused by the electronic devices, and have no clue what to do when something goes wrong. I don't think a single volunteer I ever saw in Ohio was under the age of 80.... here in Texas the guys I saw were middle-age, but that's still pushing it...

From the Ohio Secretary of State website:

Election Day Procedures
Will I need an ID to Vote?

Yes. All voters must bring identification to the polls in order to verify their identity. Identification may include a current and valid photo identification, military identification; or a copy of a current (within the last 12 months) utility bill (including cell phone bill), bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document, other than a notification mailed by the board of elections, that shows the voter’s name and current address (including from a public college or university). Voters who do not provide one of these documents at the polling place will still be able to vote a provisional ballot as described earlier in this guide, and may provide such identification to the board of elections within the 10 days following Election Day. Voters who do not have any of the above forms of identification, including a Social Security number, will still be able to vote by signing an affirmation statement swearing to the voter's identity under penalty of election falsification and by casting a provisional ballot. (Please click here for additional information on provisional voting.)

Does it really matter ... Your vote does not count ... The election process is rigged.

Obama has bought the Presidency with money from a global pool of contributors, and used legal actions to block the effort of the public to attain information about his past, as he propagandizes the public with deception.

Long live the New World Order!!
Long live the Slave Nation and the Supporters of the Global Elite!!
Megolomaniacs of power and corruption unite for control of the population.

The deception and cover-up continues.

He has resisted releasing his birth certificate? Does he have something to hide? He claimed that Bill Ayers was just a person who lived in his neighborhood.

Come all you merry makers
You wine drinkers and heart breakers
Pass me the bottle one more round
Come all of you love makers
All you cheaters and lie makers
Fill me with happiness and bring on the clowns.

There's a place around the corner and I can't wait to go
I can't stay away from there when I'm feeling low
Running from my problems, cheating on my wife
Acting like a hobo, running out on life.
Laughin loud, telling jokes, drinking to much wine
Gathered 'round the table we're all one of a kind.

Some come all you merry makers
You wine drinkers and heart breakers
Pass me the bottle one more round
Come all of you love makers
All you cheaters and lie makers
Fill me with happiness and bring on the clowns.

Obama by narrow margin. All the negative republican propaganda towards this man will sure make some people change their mind and vote the "safe option".

The "safe option"..????

What the heck does that mean?

Funny that what you call negative most everyone I know calls "questions".

So you believe we, as Americans, are not supposed to question a candidate with a questionable past and voting record? A voting record that goes against all of his talk of "non-partisanship"???

Maybe that's the way things work in Croatia, but, here in America, we are proud of our American way of life. And we will question those whose have radical ties. And we will fight, if necessary, with our voices and our votes, to keep our country safe and secure.

Maybe you should try that in YOUR country once and awhile.

Based on what I have learned of Croatia's past ... The safe option probably means ... Voting in a fashion that keeps you out of a gulag.

What "radical" ties? It's all nonsense produced by republicans. Same old republican tactic, when you can't win votes, you go for scaring people with lies about Obama, try to paint him socialist, terrorist buddy so people like you can say, gee I'm gonna vote for holy spirit filled Palin and McCain, this Obama is maybe a muslim, maybe he's Kenyan, maybe he's socialist, baby killer..It's a culture of fear mongering and this is how Bush won 4 years ago.

Hopefully, history will not repeat itself.

I agree...the election will not end up being a result of the choice of the electorate. Only difference is that I think the same buyers who managed to pull off the last minute purchases 4 and 8 years ago will do it again. If you can buy the Supreme Court, there's nothing you can't buy.

AZXD, I'm impressed with you list of links....a job FrankRizzo would be proud of. Except he would have spent forever doing research while I'm sure you found everything in one neat and tidy package with ribbons and bows..... Proves you are smarter, but no less biased. Each and every "story" has it's other side. (I realize not in your world, or in Sarah Palin's - LOL). Her recent public revelation about Obama's ties to Rhashid Khalidi and the PLO.....any chance you are aware McCain gave this same guy over $400,000?

I see every link you posted is about some negative attack on Obama. Couldn't find a single link giving a reason to vote for his opposition? Not one? :confused:

Whatever......good to see that people "vote" with their hearts and not their heads. OR believe the fix is in.

Polls say Obama is an odds-on favorite, but here we have it McCain with a greater than 30% lead....:rolleyes: - Very realistic....I wonder if this poll will be talked about today on Limbaugh's show. Who knows? Maybe you will be called upon to be the final days "Joe the Plumber". "AZXD the Poster"...LOL.

I guess there's good money in it ("JTP" got himself a publicist and is arranging a music deal or something? Maybe do a world tour?) - and maybe there's an opening for you since JTP didn't show yesterday for McCain. Can't have a tool making the guy look stumped on the stump!

:p:p:p:p:p:p






Peace,
D.

Obama is a socialist. I don't see how you can dispute this. He has done everything but said he is a socialist. But as they say, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. You show someone all the facts, but if they are too ignorant, it won't matter. Please do inform us what lies have been said about Obama. I would love to hear you regurgitate MSNBC's talking points on this.:rolleyes:
