Is that with or without...

the fraudulent votes from ACORN?

The polls may be way off for a variety of reasons.

I predict many corpses and household pets will still be voting for Obama. Can't catch them all.

From what I've heard the campaigns' internal polls show the race to be much closer than we've been hearing from the media. Ain't over 'til it's over.

They are little better than propaganda tools for the weak minded.

Doesn't matter which side they all do it, I don't like polls of any kind.

at that site you'll see that they don't rely on any one poll and take into account the bias of each poll.

I have never used polls as a way to validate what I think or like. To me they are usuless. But thanks anyway

What I see is the usual foolishness
by James Denison / October 27, 2008 3:22 AM PDT

...of two large population groups in the northeast and on the west coast believing they should hold the middle of the country hostage to their own concepts of what's best for the whole country, as long as it please their regions the most. If ever there was an argument for state's rights and federal restraint, it's shown by the geographical areas of each national election.

why waste your time with those?
by James Denison / October 28, 2008 1:00 PM PDT

Didn't they disappoint you terribly last time? Make all Democrats believe they would win, which made defeat even harder to take? If anything should have been learned the past couple elections more Democrats reply to polls than Republicans who probably just hang up on them. The margin of error always seems to favor the Democrats which is why they are always so upset then when they lose anyway, especially when they thought it was a win. What will you do this time if McCain wins? Scream about a stolen election, again?

The word propaganda comes to mind.
by Kiddpeat / October 29, 2008 4:34 PM PDT

I'll wait for the only poll that counts. What the voters say. Then we can all sit back, and see how long the investigations of vote stealing last. It's the Chicago way.

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?
