1. Thanks for actually posting a bit of neg news on Obama for once -- about the poll. Interesting: no one has any comments.
Perhaps it can be dicussed, as in what do we do about it?

Or are we all to sit by idly and only comment about what's really important, that is, intra-party fights?

"For the second straight day, the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll shows that the race for the White House is tied. Sunday’s numbers show Barack Obama and John McCain each attracting 43% of the vote. When "leaners" are included, the two candidates are tied at 46%. For most of the past month-and-a-half, Obama has led McCain by approximately five percentage points"

WTF with being tied????????????
With dropping five points ???????

Um, PC, we don't live in a democracy, you Red.

We live in a Republic.

And the Red Bushies are concerned that population shifts have them losing New Mexico, Arizona, and other states they won last time.

Which, since we use an Electoral College, means BUSH/McCAIN 08 LOSES.

Did you ditch civics?
