Hooray for polls with just numbers that don't tell you anything.


I just took a poll and its 100% Obama and 0% McCain.

That would be a pole not a poll


but actually yeah, all those polls are rubbish, they never tell you how they do it, and sometime they predict the number of Votes, and not electoral votes. And its easy to have a group of people that aren't good representatives, blah blah

5% margin of error is huge, anything with more than 3% is garbage

I am surprised that all the in MI still care. McCain pulled out of MI as it is a lost cause for him. Does it bother you that he decided your vote means nothing to him? Does it bother you that your vote will mean nothing in this election?

Yes, I am dissapointed that he is not campaigning here. It was a tactical decision because our state is filled with so many union sheep and inner city Detroit isn't smart enough to vote anything but handout democrat that they realized their time would be better spent elsewhere. IMO, it's not that McCain is a dissapointment but rather that our STATE is a dissapointment.

Yes, my vote still counts because I want to show that not everyone in Michigan is blind.

actually if you look at the demographic and voting by location the state is largely red. the problem is wayne and oakland county and minorities. they are all . there are so many of them it is hard to overcome. plus for mccain why waste time with someone who is not going to understand anyway.
