    On October 27, CBS-New York Times has Carter ahead 42-39. On October 30, the Washington Post has Carter ahead by 43-39.

    The actual vote takes place on November 4. Ronald Reagan receives 51 percent of the vote, Carter a paltry 41 percent. It is a landslide.

    What is it about a Reagan 10 point margin of victory that confuses you when only 5 days earlier Reagan was down by 4 points?

    I speak reality again and I will be pounded for it but please never forget it because like it or not it is still a driving force in this election just as it was in the last 'The Race Card Lies There Waiting"

    Pay no attention to polls in this election and remember that the Main Stream Media (the old cronkite media) are all in the bag for "Their Poster Boy Obama"

    I'm not a Romney fan and I have said repeatedly that I don't think Romney has a chance given the Racism that runs rampant in the Left Wing Media and in the Minds of Liberal America but as some news sources are reporting this morning the Crowds that Romney is drawing is scaring the sh!t out of the Obama people.

    America gave Barack Hussein Obama his chance, he failed miserably, he is a Socialist Communist
    (he also eats fried twinkies that can drive you nuts)

    OR who is being polled, registered voters or likely voters??? This often skews the polling.

    Unfortunately the Republicans don't have Reagan. They have Mitt Romney.

    I've been to plenty, and suffice it to say you haven't a clue what you're talking about.

    That said, you have been somewhat useful in exposing the low-information demographic Romney's appealing to with his patently false welfare ads.

    Yes, the polls predicted a close election and Reagan shellacked Jimma by 10 points.

    The polls lie. Get it?

    Yeah, but the Dems have Obama. The worst President since Carter.

    The tables have turned. All the negative State election tv ads feature the incumbent with Obama. The kiss of death.
