ask not for whom the poll tells, john mcmuffin...it tells for thee

you know things are bad when rasmussen, the only polling organization leaning so far to the right that it's only beat by faux news, and faux news, the only polling organization leaning so far to the right that it's only beat by rasmussen, shows obama gaining:

polling this week in colorado, florida, ohio, pennsylvania, and virginia shows that barack obama has gained a net 3 to 5 percentage points in each state compared to the previous fox news/ rasmussen reports poll.

in pennsylvania, obama now leads by eight percentage points, 50% to 42%.

in virginia, it’s obama 50% and mccain 47%.

the candidates are within a single point of each other in colorado (obama 49%, mccain 48%), florida (obama 47%, mccain 47%), and ohio (mccain 48% obama 47%).

national polls and other state polling conducted by rasmussen reports indicate that obama gained ground before last friday night’s debate, probably as a result of the economic turmoil that has dominated the news. since the debate, the rasmussen reports daily presidential tracking poll shows little change in the national numbers.

regardless of the timing and the cause, however, the overriding trend from the past week is a shift in the battleground states that favors obama.
at this juncture, speaking of tracking polls, we'd like to direct your attention to polltrack, run by maurice berger, a good friend of our good buddy, jon swift (and any friend of a buddy of ours is a...we guess, a fruddy?)

polltrack has, among other things, not only an electoral map based on today's polling, but one based projected on current momentum, as well as a wild-guess election day stab-in-the-dark.

I wonder if McLame knows he was set up. We know the Shrub screws up everything he touches and dumps it on the next guy. And we know McWhore is the same as Bush. Think they'll just dump all the blame on Obama even though he had little to do with it?

Of course they will blame Obama and every other Dem. IOKIYAR.

On the polls, I think the media has an interest in making the race seem close, so the polls are set up in ways to skew the results to show a close race. If they showed how the people in the country really felt, the race would be very boring.

aWol has the fecal touch, everything he touches turns to shit!
