Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.
I remember during the 2004 election, it seemed George Bush was doomed. The results were different however: Zogby got it right. So this time around, I don't pay much attention to the other polls, which often are stacked with more Democrats than Republicans, I just check Zogby. Today, Obama is down .8% and McCain up 2.4% from yesterday; they are 3.8 % apart. Rasmussen is another poll that is respected. It shows a 5% lead for Obama nationally.
Considering that Obama is outspending McCain at least 5 to 1, you would think Obama would be way ahead, not just around 4% nationally. The bad economy helps Obama more than it helps McCain. Add to that the lack of coverage by mainstream media to report anything controversial about Obama and it makes McCain's down by 4% look more positive.
It will be a nail biter, but remember the July Leader Lost in 6 of Last 9 Competitive U.S. Elections
If you look at the Gallup polls from past elections, you see that they are all over the map prior to the elections. Often there was a dramatic shift in the last week or so. It makes you wonder if the campaign were held a week later, would the winner have been different?
Could it be that there are only so many Obama votes out there? Enter ACORN. If Obama Is Really So Far Ahead, Why Does ACORN Have to Cheat? Good question. The ACORN fraud definitely adds another layer to the question of who will win on Nov. 4th. If Obama wins, will we ever know that he really won?
The mainstream media wants to defeat you. Remember that when you look at the polls. It is not over until it's over--and that is 20 days from now.
