Yes, it's as simple as clearing cookies, resetting your modem, using a proxy program, etc. There are programs out there made just to screw up online polls that cycle you through proxies and automatically cast the vote over, and over.

I know Gallup and several other major polling organizations (don't know which ones, though) call cell phones, but I don't know about VOIP. If you look in FAQ in each of the organizations sites, it's generally one of the first questions asked.

Gallup and Rasmussen have detailed listings of their methodologies. They are 2 of the most respected polling agencies in the country.

Default Stay Calm

McCain’s drastic decision to suspend his campaign is universally seen as a political gambit. Regardless of the results of the Bailout Bill, McCain’s actions appear erratic and that tends to scare both moderates and conservatives.

And the Gallup poll was tied yesterday, when obama had a 3 point lead the day before. That only included one night of the reaction to McCain's suspension. Who knows what today will show?

This one has Mac by 2

Also Zogby had mac up by 2, as well as HA.

The polls are all over the place. Wait 1-2 weeks to see how it shakes out.

really? maybe he got some bad news from his Dr. or something. i dunno most people i talk to, (neighbors relatives etc.) dont seem concerned with a delay. I guess hes just a big scardy pants. almost forgot to add they are concerned with this meltdown and dont want a bailout. i have an idea. 700 billion? how many adults live in the us? lets divide half of that and give to all the adults in the country. not the a--es who did this nor the congress, house etc. if we divide the 350 billion among all of us not many ppl will need loans for awhile huh? i wonder what that number would come out to be per household?
