Heard that Obama is going down in polls amongst rural voters.

I wonder if that's how media outlets will spin the "election" for a Romney win. "City-slickers stayed home while rural voters came out in droves to deliver the presidency to RMoney."

8. No links... but here's what I listened to today:

Talk of the Nation - NPR
Kathleen Dunn Show - WI Public Radio.

Basically, NPR.

12. This is not a surprise. Rural voters always vote heavily GOP.

I don't know why, but they do.

17. Thanks. I hate digging for links of things I've heard on NPR.

I'm really afraid that this is how the media will spin a win for RMoney less than an hour after polls close in Maine. Due to the inequity in the US economy, the majority of US voters skeptical of the "results" won't be able to pay the corporate media outlets to investigate the corporate media spin, and we'll have four years of Dubya-lite.

20. Geez, I just looked at the poll and talk about a racially biased poll...


The poll is primarily about immigration and a total of 600 participants between NINE states so aprox 74 respondents per state.

This poll is worse than garbage, imo.

Here is the link to the actual poll questions, etc.
