I have heard politcal professionals say that he needs to go into the polls wth at least a 6 point lead. In the first "bradley effect", the day of the election, Bradley was up by 10 mpoints but lost by 2 points.
Who knows. With this economic mess, they just want to punish "Bush" and since he is republican, the people want to punish republicans; that should, by default, give Obama the win.. I want to punish them all ...bobford
