I don't worry about the polls at this time. Think of this; does anyone know ANYBODY who will be voting for osama obama who voted for mccain last time? How many people who voted for obama last time will not do so now. That alone shoudl foretell the result.

On the other hand, how many of those clueless who voted for hussein will do so again? I expect many will, particularly the uneducated, the black, the hispanic, the welfare parasites, and those who are so racist that they will vote for him only because the partial color of his skin.

Our presidential elections, pundits sometimes remind us, are not national contests, but rather contests in 50 states and the District of Columbia. And since most states lean heavily to one party or the other these days, the only real contests are in a dozen or so target states.

Once upon a time, most states were in play. In the 1976 contest between Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter, 30 states with 396 electoral votes were carried by less than 10 percent of the votes. Three-quarters of voters lived in those states.

In 2008, the field of play was much smaller....
