    Well of course the polls say that Obama is going to win, they keep asking you. Nobody has polled me.

    Ditto. It seems like they just keep polling inner city welfare recipients. My or any of my collegues have yet to be asked for our opinion

    Obama by 2% - I predict that the death of his Grandmother will roll out the sympathy vote, and just in time.

    Your choices are messed up.

    They should read:

    1. McCain squeaks by.

    2. We're all fucked.

    Obama wins the pop. and McCain the electoral. Exit polls will show an Obama landslide and will be wrong again just like four years ago. At least I hope. This will be close, that I KNOW.

    Most pollsters and their polls have built-in biases based on faulty political perspectives.. Obama is the expected winner so anything democrat is normal. Many people being polled are not going to tell an unknown voice over the phone their true feelings. I've never been polled by a major pollster, but have heard it takes all of a half hour or more to conduct a full poll and they keep asking the same question over and over in such a way as to get the person being polled so confused that many after 15 20 minutes have hung up in disgust.
    We haven't heard from the little guy and gal in rural America yet nor from all the Al the plumbers, Joe the electricians and other small business owners.
    Also, about this time tomorrow night we may be getting some idea whether Obama's close ties with Benjamin Wright, Bill Ayers, Louis Farakahn, Tony Rezko and other sordid characters will have any effect on the outcome of this election.

    Not sure what "blowout" is defined as, but I believe it will be a significant decision for Obama. :/

    Years ago I did exit polling for a local tv station, all we did we ask people who they'd voted for and call the results in to the station every hour.

    I think that Obama will win the popular vote but McCain will win the electoral vote.

    I think it will be interesting to see.

    Whatever the outcome, I hope that both major parties can set aside their rancor, roll up their sleeves, and get down to the serious business of rebuilding our economy.

    In times of crisis, the great leaders have understood the value of reaching across the aisle, and those on the other side who possess good judgement would welcome the opportunity to be a productive participant to the recovery process.

    I think we are in a time as trying as any faced by generations before us, more so because we are so accustomed to having so many conveniences in our lives. How we handle it will define us as a generation.

    I hope we are all ready, willing and able to step up to the plate.
