21. Oh I agree with that.. His base is not the college students or old
or anything..his base is just like the 50 state strategy.. He moved to all age groups,income groups, etc.. and that is how it should be..

I was just commenting on the angst of some of the media pollsters and ooooooooooo this could be trouble for Obama.. yadda yadda yadda.

Every day it is a new crock of something for them
