I'm sure there's some humour to be found in this, but I'll be dipped in baptismal water if I can find it

Has anyone seen this poll from CNN......

http://www.pollingreport.com/wh08.htm

The poll I refer to is a little way down the page and asks: suppose you could vote for the President and Vice President separately, who would you choose.

Obama has a one point lead on McCain,

Palin has a NINE point lead over Biden.

NINE friggin points???? WTF, America ! WTF !!!!

 

My apologies if this has already been posted, and sorry but I was unable to C&P.

I saw this poll too and it

I saw this poll too and it probably is the result of the recent frenzy of media activity over Palin. As the hype wears down and people realize what Palin really supports the numbers will drop significantly. Some women are supporting her as a replacement for Hillary though she certainly isn't. Other than Palin and Hillary both have boobs there is little other resemblance. Palin is a nightmare to women's rights and all the social issues Hillary supports. A vote for Palin-McCain is a vote to continue on the road to oblivion started by Bush.

I think the poll results may

I think the poll results may have changed since you saw it....

The stats I just saw don't seem to match the OP.

Here's a couple I thought were interesting farther down the page. No humor, I guess, but encouraging maybe:

No, Nik... you were looking at the Newsweek Poll. That's what you

copy pasted. Keep scrolling down to the CNN poll and check it out.

I suppose it's all the more reason for those who know to continue

working hard if they want an Obama-Biden White House.

Still, sometimes it's pathetically sad to be an American. To be perfectly

clear though, I'm not surprised just disappointed.

If it weren't for Palin's

If it weren't for Palin's politics and fundieness, I'd tottally do her. Her popularity is just like the Agelena affect, both men and women would like to do her.

Our society with it's McDonnald's media has produced a population that has the attention span of a flea. We would rather vote for a clechi than for practical reasons. I think it is great that woman and blacks are now being considered for our highest levels, but your skin color or what you have between your legs has nothing to do with job preformance.

The office of the President has always been on the job training because of term limits. The dynamics between running a city or state are nothing like running a country. And I find it ironic that BOTH parties have a split ticket of newbie and vet(politicaly speaking).

I could give a shit less if we ellected a rastifarian or owel or palmagranet, I simply want government to stay out of my life, stop speaking on my behalf on deitys, and stop pretending we are the only country on the face of the planet. That and a president who could talk Angelina into doing me.

Finally at age 57 I'm not so

Finally at age 57 I'm not so surprised; mass insanity I've come to humbly accept, but I still roar.

Oh, I see now. Wow, that's a lot of polls.

I only looked at about 80% of all the polls but the CNN one I think you were referrring to seemed like something of an anomaly. In general it seems things are not as bad as I feared (assuming I can gauge anything by these polls).
