And picking said "beer swilling, gun toting hottie that is a governor of a state with a pop less than Memphis" did nothing but completely eliminate any bump in polls for Obama and has pretty much kept him out of the news ever since. I'd argue she's probably made some people forget who BO's VP is... much less remember anything about him.

While the txt message thing was great for younger people, younger people are also fickle. The ones who would vote because they got a txt message are also the ones who would go vote for a hot hockey mom who can shoot dinner and cook it.

You know, Delaware's population isn't that much larger...maybe only about 180K more according to the 2006 US Census Bureau.

Not sure what poll you were reading before the conventions ... but pre conventions they were basically tied, Obama announced Biden had the convention and was up 6-8 points (poll of polls). Republicans had convention and we are tied again. EVERY pundit is saying that the conventions did exactly what everyone thought they would do and it will hinge on two things now 1) the outcome of the debates and 2) any unforeseen military or disasters.

Anyone else get the heebie jeebies at the mention of another military or natural disaster? I kinda get that "foreshadowing" feeling that I sometimes get when watching a movie.

Lets wager...

Gas drops to $3.25 a gallon, or disaster... which will come first?

Maybe so, but I tend more to believe that the RNC had more to do with that then the VP pick did... The bump in the polls is a misnomer, he's still not close in the states that matter... 50 some odd electoral votes behind...

You have to wonder too, who makes up the polling audience? Are they still using landline telephones? How many young people actually have those anymore? Just a curiousity.

That and the poll "likely registered voters" ... well the Obama campaign alone will have registered over 1 million new voters this cycle, not counting Hillary's effort in the primary. So between all of the new voters and the no land line phones, I think "most" polls are all messed up. Now, I will grant you that in the past the democratic party has not been that great on getting the young and new registrants to the polls and we will be focusing on that effort. The month of October our (Allen County for Obama) will be focused on calling our new registered voters that we have registered this year and getting them to vote early.

That is extremely rare Scooby ...

BTW all ... the Obama team registered 12,300 voters this past weekend in Indy and Fort Wayne alone. Those people weren't polled either ...

Indiana is going blue in November, our goal here in Allen County is that we want Allen County to be the first red county to go blue that night. We have registered 3,000 since June 24 in Allen County alone.

I thought I'd never live to see the day that Bman wants to "go blue." I still prefer "Scarlet." Laughing
