    I just don't see how this is possible.  74% of the white vote going McCain?  And McCain up by 6 in trh Triangle?  OK, this is a weird way of measuring, but on my Facebook page, I have about 40 friends.  (Yeah, not many, but I'm old.)  More than 30 of them are listed as "fans of Obama", exactly three are clearly declared Republicans (and two of those are married to each other).  I just don't see it.  Every person I talk to talks about how horrified they are by Palin, how they would sooner jump off a bridge than vote for McCain.  And we are pretty much all white, middle-class technology professionals with suburban homes and kids.  I just don't see how this is possible.  But maybe I am just in denial.
