    As mentioned elsewhere in this forum, some people have pointed out that it's states who elect Presidents, not a nationwide popular vote. States like Florida are crucial to winning the election, they say. So the fact that the nationwide popular polls are hugely skewed, doesn't really matter, they say.

    Well, the latest state poll taken in Florida shows Obama ahead by 8% in that state. Only problem is, they had to ask 40% more Democrats than Republicans in Florida, to get that "result".

    Yep, the same huge skewing is going on in the statewide "polls" that show Obama ahead.

    What are the chances that 40% more Dems than Republicans, will actually vote in Florida on Nov. 6?

    I didn't think so.
