"It 'Aint Over 'Til The Fat Lady Sings"- Vote! McCain!

All you hear from the liberal media, and other biased idiots, is that the race is over, Obama has it in the bag, fughettaboudit, don't vote; but as I have commented before, polls can't be trusted. Remember Dewey? Most papers predicted a Thomas E. Dewey win: The New York Times proclaimed “Thomas E. Dewey’s Election as President is a Foregone Conclusion.” Life Magazine also predicted a Dewey win, when months prior to the election they published a photo of Dewey with the caption: “The Next President of the United States." The Chicago Daily Tribune even plastered "Dewey Defeats Truman" on their front page, on November 3, 1948. But incumbent Harry S. Truman (Democrat) trounced Dewey, in spite of Gallup Poll predictions that Dewey would win, and endorsements by only a measly 15% of U.S. daily papers.

Polls these days are liberally biased, and the media's pro-Obama stance will have you believe there's no point in voting. An AP Poll claims that 'Obama backers are gleeful, McCain backers glum.' George E. Marcus (political scientist from Williams College) says this is not good for McCain. Feeling discouraged can cause people to not vote, because of what they perceive as the futility in voting for a candidate who they presume will not win.

Don't fall for it. Get out there, and vote..... McCain!!

Gary Trudeau's "Doonesbury" comic strip has apparently created a cartoon for next week, presupposing an Obama win.

Let's hope we have another Dewey/Truman scenario, but that it's the Republican who wins, this time around.

Right! Not only should the rampantly presumptuous polling results cause us to get out and vote unfailingly; there's also the potential that they could cause a small percentage of Dems to assume it's in the bag so why bother to vote, I've got my Pilates class to get to or whatever. No McCain supporter can fail to vote Tuesday, our country and our kids' future depends on it.

ZACK: I'm hoping the same about the Dems.. that they think it will be landslide and won't bother to vote.. in the meantime, the undecideds hopefully will vote McCain. IT's imperative, though, that every pro-McCainer votes.

AI: Thanks for all your support, Otto. Please pray for us.

THROWING STONES: The more the merrier. :-)

I agree, and really hope Trudeau eats his words. I also think that a link should have been made between the AP Poll and the media's treatment of McCain/Palin as compared to their treatment of "The Messiah". I doubt the media made that link, but it makes sense to me. About a year ago (I think), there was a poll out that said Republicans were happier than Democrats. Remember that?

incog what kind of treatment are we going to see given to obama once (and If) he is elected presidnt. you think bias is bad now! they, the media, ain't going to come close to criticizing him for fear of being called what they call others who "questioned" him.
