    344 - Obama 190 - McCain

    I wouldn't be surprised to see one protest electoral vote for Al Gore

      And if I thought that all 'Mericans watched the speech that Obama just gave in Cleveland, the numbers would be higher. Very, very powerful. And, yes, of course I realize it's only words, but "that one" is very, very bright.
      I have heard his latest speech so many times I know most of it by heart but his latest in North Carolina was so strong. I teared up when he did talking about his grandmother.

      I have not felt this kind of connection to a public figure, especially a politician, ever. ops: 8-)

      I am too nervous to believe he is actually going to win- I mean I know he will but i am afraid he won't. :? :?

        Mojo, check out this picture of Obama talking about his grandmother today. I think it will move you.

          Thanks for the pic. i hope I am not the only one touched by it. Oh yeah you are all he-mans around here. :wink:

          Obama handles everything with such grace and strength. 8-)

          Both he and McCain must be exhausted but for Obama to have to deal with on top of everything else. :cry: :cry:


          I loved both his books but "Dreams of My Father" where he talks about his grandmother's life and her influence on him was very moving.

          I really wish his mother was here as well.

            Most polls had Obama with a 6% lead 52-46 several days ago, but they've already started to close together. I'm hoping that it gets down to 50-48 by tomorrow night, so we'll have a record turn-out, which I think favors Obama . . . a lot. If people think Obama's win is a done deal, that could increase the Pucker Factor a lot! :shock:
            "Narrowing" is hardly happening on the Fox poll and the one by Investors Business Daily, and even these are growing relative to the recent past. One poll showed tightening when a vastly under-sample 18-25 group was filtered (likely voter models) to be 75/25 M/O; about as likely as a regular on this board winning NYC next year.

            If you divide the polls into those that poll cell phones and those that do not, the ones that poll cell users are 5% higher -- do you really think that the landline group is the same as the much younger (and hipper?) cell-only crew? This is the last election that they make that mistake.

              Aha! Another Nate Silver fan.
