    This can mean nothing but good news, that's almost 175,000 new voters under the age of 25, the overwhelming majority support Obama, particularly when you factor in the under 25 female representation. Take notice also, that the biggest gainers in registrations were cities...more good news.

    and many many of them are questionable
    acorn regestered tons there and they have already found a ton of NON valid regestrations. so get ready to hear the complaints about people being purged off the rolls.

    Oh NO!!!! You can't purge FAKE voters from the rolls... that wouldn't be "Fair" and you'll be accused of "voter suppression" for expecting only VALID voters casting ballots!

    but the good news is we are making a big stink about acron now 3-4 weeks ahead of the election.


    last time when pms nbc screamed like little girls about the purging the rolls, the avarage joe six pack did not know what acorn had been up to in the weeks before


    crap! there I go again with that racist stuff, joe six pack, you would think I was a hockey mom talking that way,


    when actually im a soccer mom :D

    Purge Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, Tony Romo and any and all fraudulent registrations...we're talking about 436,000 new voters, I doubt that ACORN is responsible for but a small percentage. Anyway, polls show Obama's lead in VA growing..you can't hang that on ACORN.

    I am not to worried about any state he is not at least 7 strong consistant points ahead and ten in states he is sometimes ahead and other times not

    I think there are way more people than you realize who say on the phone i am voting for the messiah but have zero intent of doing it.

    i know way to many people like that to think I met them all

    the bradley effect I guess they call it

    Polls are based on the number of registered voters (not actual voters) so when ACORN uses fraud to bolster this number, the Pollsters OVERSAMPLE democrats and its reflected in the polling. Besides.... they tend to poll LESS THAN 750 people per poll, not even 1% of the electorate.

    Obama is currently ahead by double digits is states totaling 245 electoral votes

    He is ahead by 5%-9% in states totaling 44 more electoral votes

    And he is ahead by under 5% in states adding up 68 more electoral votes.

    Do the math..he only needs 270..if I were you I'd be real concerned.


    as for counting on the Bradley effect...it seems to have disappeared

    Why? Are you going to make us sew yellow stars on our clothing... ship us in cattle cars to "Progressive" Camps where we're either sent to the "Showers" or forced to labor for the Common Good?

    It didnt disapear in oregon, people are afraid to say they would rather write in hillary or vote mccain. the people coming to the door have argued with them treated them badly. if its happening here its happening all over.
