The Truth is: This Election will be 48% Bush and 50% Kerry
how that plays out in the Electoral college will be up in the air.

But we all know that Kerry OR Shrub won't get less than 44%. This I am Most certain about.

so if you see a poll that says otherwise, just know that they are paid to affect the news.

Time magazine is VERY PRO WAR, it has been selling magazines with those nice bloody pictures. Just keep things in mind people.

2. Yeah I don't believe any junk that rolls out completely wrong
Like Shrub winning California or something as stupid.

The LA Times and Time magazine, I don't listen to their polls anymore.
It's outright inaccurate. Not because they aren't more favorable to Kerry, but they are just way off that they have no more credibility in the right or the left. It's quite a shame they suck so bad. Oh well, if they want to hurt their own creds, that's up to them.

LA TIMES and TIME have no credibility.

5. For some reason
Edited on Fri Sep-03-04 04:45 PM by fujiyama
I feel the same way. I think Kerry will win the popular vote. I just don't think that Bush would have gained that many votes over the past four years.

Plus Kerry will get so many votes in Ca, NY, Il, and othe states with major cities. He'll win those by a large margin.

I think Bush's speech strengthened his base. Maybe some leaners are back on board with him. I would guess that Bush will have almost the same support among republicans as Kerry has among democrats.

There are say 9-10% undecided. Many of these are independants and probably voted for Bush.
