The Gallup polls I've seen

...... have only had him about 3-4 points ahead, well within the range of error.

The other polls are the ones that have it wider.

Those with election experience don't put their "eggs in poll baskets", nor engage in fear tactics when they indicate they might be behind.

Then you must mean Obama is putting his eggs in the polls as he has very little experience in getting elected.

the liar margin
by James Denison / October 19, 2008 6:04 AM PDT

Do you think there's a 5% liar margin for error in this election? There's been talk of a "Bradley Effect" when black candidates run for office. Seems some prefer to lie, saying they will vote for the black candidate, especially when overheard by black fellow workers, but end up voting for the other candidate instead.

In reply to: the liar margin

I'm sure there are people who lie when it suits their purpose. Always have been.

Worse are those who lie to themselves. They come up with every excuse in the world to convince themselves that what they say and do , for instance, is what Christ taught. But they rationalize that His teachings just don't fit today because... because... well, this guy is ......(whisper) black.

Or they can say anything to people with whom they disagree because,,,, well... because.... they are just wrong. There must be someplace in the Bible that says it's OK to not like them just because they are wrong. Right?

We won't know the answer until after the voltes are counted. We'll see if that children's somg has meant more than it did 26 years ago.

"Jesus loves the little children.

All the children oft the world.

red and yellow black and white

they are precious in His sight.

Jesus loves the little children of the world."

Oh, I mentioned the "Bradley Effect"
by James Denison / October 19, 2008 6:36 AM PDT
In reply to: how did this subject

Some might think it's a term Republicans came up with, but really it was liberals trying to figure why polls might have lied about some candidates winning and then they lost. I don't know there's really such a thing, that's why I asked if she believed it.

Thanks

I vaguely remember the Bradley thing and since what I was saying had nothing to do with race I didn't understand where the race factor came in.

you see, that's what I object to
by James Denison / October 19, 2008 6:32 AM PDT
In reply to: Only time will tell

although I know there's nothing to convince those who believe so otherwise. They will continue to believe the only reason someone might not vote for Barack is because he's...he's...he's.....black. Some of those same people would willing vote for a J C Watts, or an Alan Keyes, but darn it, as black as they are, even blacker than Obama, that just doesn't count. Condi doesn't count because she's not black enough politically, just racially. I'm sure there are other reasons to marginalize blacks who don't get the blessing of the liberal left. In the Book that's called "hypocrisy" and Jesus didn't approve that much of them, did he?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
