THE FIX IS IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Channel 4 in Columbus Ohio had Sherrod Brown (D) leading incumbent Mike Dewine (R) by eight points at 5:30pm.THIRTY MINUTES LATER they now say DEWINE is leading 41/40. Brown dropped eight points in 30 minutes!!!! I KNEW it was going to end up like this. It's a pattern.....right before the elections repukes just happen to catch up at the last minute. Makes it a whole lot easier for them to steal,doesn't it? Son-Of-A-BITCH!!!!!!!! :argh:

In polls?...
Maybe one poll showed the opposite. I don't see what you're going into a tangent about. Perhaps you could explain, because these aren't election results, only polls.

4. That's impossible
I don't see how in thirty minutes they can have a poll be that different. Is it a poll from the same people??

5. Umm...
Polls aren't conducted in real time. So either you're talking about two different polls with different results, or you're comparing a legitimate poll to something else, or... unspecified third option.

Can you explain what you're talking about?

6. If any of the following happen "we" will know that it was dirty
Kilroy is up by 12 points over # 4 repug in the house Deb Pryce
Strickland is up by 28 points over Blackwell
Brown is up by 8 to 10 points over DeWine

The phony polls are put so the repugs still go out and vote.
CH 4 is a whore for the repugs


Nationally
Indie voters prefer Dems 59 to 31%
and nationally voters prefer dems over repugs 71 to 26%

10. Rove has been all over NPR today, saying they're going to win.
Which means, of course, Rove & Bush & the Boys have the voting machine manufacturers/programmers in their pockets.

It's going to be another republican sweep of both houses. If Rove says it's so, you know he's got things lined up. He sounded all upbeat and confident. Says his "private, massive" precinct polls have told him it's so.

There needs to be a revolution, and we need to throw the voting machines in the Boston Harbor.

:kick: :kick: :kick:

12. Stupid post of the day award
People have been saying they are going to win because that is what politicians do - been doing it for all eternity.

Take a chill pill will ya.

13. Well, don't fall off that high horse, Mr spock.
But Mr. Rove was not just saying they were going to win. If you are at all familiar with the NPR format, they ask more in-depth questions than most other republican-run networks. Rove explained WHY he KNEW they were going to win both the house and the senate.

You're the one that needs a pill. I'm passing on facts about what rove said, you're just being needlessly dismissive.

17. You are right.
Why is it that Bu$h and Rove are so confident? And we are supposed to not worry? Khrist. We've sat and watched this scene before.......over and over again. But when we bring it up,we get our asses tore. If they end up the "winners" this time MY ass will be out in the street even if it's by myself.

25. What do you EXPECT them to say? Of course they're going to predict victory
Kerry and Edwards consistently predicted victory - right up until they conceded. Did THEY have a fix in?

11. ???
Is every word - even a mistake - going to be analyzed and posted on here for the next two weeks?

If this is the case, then I will have to avoid DU for a while.

21. What exactly are you doing about it? Besides wringing your hands
on a message board about vague polls and Rove's spinning.

Yes, we should be vigilant about combating election theft, but flying off into hysteria every time the Republicans spin is hardly the most productive course.

"when the REPUBLICANS ARE CELEBRATING ANOTHER VICTORY!"

Frankly it sounds to me like you think it's already over.
