43. Yes I agree
A lot of people thought Kerry would win before the election. I did too. It looked like it was going to be a win.

The guy from ACT, the organization you're quoting thought he'd win until halfway through election day - until he started visiting Republican precincts. Then he realized it might not happen, then would not happen.

But yes it surprised a lot of people. We thought Kerry'd win.

I don't know what the point of the quotes about before the election is. It reminds me of a football coach whose team gets upset and after the game he keeps reading and rereading all the pre-game predictions saying how he was going to win. See, this guy said we'd win and so did this guy and that guy and we just couldn't lose.

Gotta go to bed. Really no point to this discussion anyway. The believers are going to believe. The exit polls are never wrong even though the exit polls showed Dukakis and Bush tied. It doesn't matter. Next day they'll be another post saying the exit polls are never wrong. Same with the pre-election polls showing Kerry ahead, and the ground game couldn't be lost.
