McCain Making Gains

 

According to a recent poll taken at Quinnipiac University there is an indication that John McCain is gaining on Barack Obama in the battleground states of Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

In that same poll a month ago Obama was leading McCain with a 4-point lead in Florida, a 6-point lead in Ohio, and a 12-point in Pennsylvania. Now Florida and Ohio are too close to call.

According to Peter A. Brown, the assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, "no candidate has been elected to the White House since 1960 without winning two of the three states."

Nope. They'll just sue and the person with the most politically inclined supreme court justices will win, actual voter counts be damned. Geez. I thought we all knew those didn't count anyway.

  I can't imagine...  
 
with all the stupid shit coming out of McCains mouth that he's gaining anything. If the polls are accurate (which I doubt) it just shows the intellect of the American people.

  I wonder if the repubs will cheat a million people  
 
again just like they did in 2000. Hiring companies to remove legal voters from the registries by doing like comparisons with their names to convicted felons...

That managed to get about 1,000,000 voters off of the lists in FL last time and most of them were black. 90% of black voters vote for democrats so basically that means Gore won FL in 2000 if it were not for this cheating tactic and theft of votes.

Im sure they will use the same nasty trick again. After all nobody cares if the elections in this country are rigged or not...

People will still go out and vote as if it somehow matters to the real owners of this country. Democracy has been dead at least for 8+ years in this country.
