    if this were a fair election Obama would win in a walk.

    but i can't share everyrone else's optimism about recent polls because deep down I have serious doubts that this will be a fair election.

    we could wake up November 7 with all the close states flipping red and there will be nothing we can do about it.  

    I fear Florida 2000 multiplied several times over.

    We have to win overwhelmingly to combat whatever voter fraud Rs have in mind.  So until I see polls showing a much bigger advantage, I will not be comfortable or optimistic.

      Though I wouldn't put it past the increasingly brazen and desperate GOP to go for the POTUS in broad daylight, as it were,  I think the shenanigans this time will focus on trying to keep the House and flip the Senate. That way they've got an anchor on Obama for the next four years, and can create enough misery to make a GOP candidate a shoo-in for 2016.

      R-Money/R-Ayn, the ENRON Ticket, is not a campaign; it's a hostile takeover bid.

      Our "fourth estate" proved in Florida 2000 that they were perfectly willing to go along with the illegal outcome because the Gore campaign made a mistake. They ignored the fact that the interest that must be served is the PUBLIC interest, not the narrow interest of one campaign or another.

      Elections belong to VOTERS. We have to drive that point home and make anyone attempting to game an election, or rush to report questionable results, hear from the public immediately, loudly and clearly and in PUBLIC.

      I also think we need an AP watch. Somewhat anonymous AP reporters are often allowed to sit in on vote counting to report results rapidly. THEY need to know we are also watching THEM, and no longer totally trust them, as the press inserts itself in our elections where voters are not permitted to go.

      Okay, the Government says you MUST abort your child. NOW do you get it?
