Frankly, it's ok by me if the McCain fans want to talk about the Bradley Effect. Please, talk it up! We need to remind people that we need every single person to vote, becuase we are combatting an undercurrent of racism (whether people want to admit it or not).

The real enemy is complacency. Do not think you do not need to vote because Obama is doing well. Everyone needs to vote.

There will be no Bradley Effect nor a New Hampshire Effect.

VOTE BASED ON QUALIFICATIONS.

Don't look at race, color and creed.
Don't even mention these three words in this presidential election.
These have NOTHING to do with the election.

FiveThirtyEight.com: Electoral Projections Done Right

Bradley Effect? Or Elephant Effect?

I have received quite a number of requests for comment on the article published by Republican consultant Bill Greener at Salon.com. The article purports to find evidence of a "Bradley Effect" in Senate and Gubernatorial Elections in involving black candidates in 2006.

So, I'll comment on it.

So, it wasn't just black Republicans who were undeperforming their polls; it was white Republicans too (likewise with Rick Santorum in Pennsylvania): not a 'Bradley Effect' so much as an 'Elephant Effect'.

But it wouldn't please a Republican consultant to talk about that, now would it?

Great read with a lot more to it for you to read and comment on. Why are the Republicans so focused on hoping racism still exists? Is that their view and hope for our national future?

Vote early and vote asap
Vote early and vote often! (just kidding....)
