Rather I hear how sick of them people are.

I'll put my confidence in what I see everyday in the real world not any poll.
There's a danger in that. You interact with a very limited circle. My wife, a public school teacher, is certain Obama is going to win in a landslide... she's got her ear to the ground at work, so to speak, and no one she knows supports anyone on the Republic side. She seems incredulous when I tell her it's going to be a rough year for Obama.

Polls are useful. Obama's are not as bad as some seem to think. He's still definitely in the range of being able to win.

81% of Democrats. Of course they would say that; who's going to admit buyer's remorse in a poll?

Nah.

There are very few teachers vote republican.

I forget who the liberal woman was who said in 1972, after Nixon won 48 states...."I can't believe he won....I don't know anyone who voted for him!"

That was my point, alpha. You can't make predictions based on your personal interactions. I don't think that the fact that 98 percent of the people at my wife's school are going to vote for Obama means he's headed toward a landslide win. It's hard to convince my wife of that though because she doesn't believe polls.

I'm for the party of respecting the Constitution.

I'm for the party that see's socialism for the evil it is.

I'm for the party that is for limited government.

Anyone know where to find it?

I find that hard to believe.
Can you please cite the polls.
Is that 81% of registered Dems, or of people who voted Dem in the last election?

It would be nice if it was true, but I don't buy it.
Just heard it tonight on the news myself. But no doubt he is unopposed and Dems will certainly get behind him, its not really hard to believe, he's actually done quite a good job considering the very stiff and constant obstrucion and the size of the hideous mess he was left with.
