Over 25% of the electorate has already voted and they are breaking from Obama 57% to 38%.

Don't look to the other 3/4 of voters to help McCain either.

They prefer Obama 54% to 41%.

Bush did McCain in, but McCain helped a great deal. His 90% voting support of Bush, the same stance on the war as Bush, etc.

And the final blunder, the selection of Palin.

I sill don't understand the chant coming from the republicans that early voting is bad for them. When in hell did more people voting become a bad thing?

IMO, the choice of Palin did him in. Up until that point, he was actually doing pretty well. If he had picked Romney he would have responded to the economic crisis better. Going all "mavericky" was a huge mistake. My opinion, of course.

I agree. In fact, I think there are many other female senators who would have served him better then Palin. She's a total ditz.

Read the article, many more Democrats voted early and what is the state distribution. The article also mentions that Kerry won the early voters in 2004. We need to chill and keep working and not be boastful as locker room articles have caused many a favorite team to lose.

Again and again and yes, even again........While it is true more Democrats voted in the early voting, early exit polls where they were done in Florida and NC, both show McCain winning those early voting. In Florida, pols among those who have voted were +5-7 McCain and +2 in NC.

There was thing called operation chaos that yieled millions of fake democrats.
They can't count the votes until the 4th.
this is nothing more then another post to try and discourage republicans from voting. Just like the media is doing. It won't work. Sorry!
