......and he maintained the lead through election day.

Bad news for McCain.

according to Gallup, in their polling whoever led the Tuesday after Labor Day has been the winner of the election 15 of the 18 times since they have started polling. Obama was up 3 points that day.

I was just thinking how strikingly similar the two elections were, except in like a "bizarro world" way.

Yay!

I know they're just stats, but they're good to hear.

Speaking of stats. More US soldiers were killed under Clinton than Bush.
Now, how's that for a stat.

It's terrible, and it's sad.

I didn't vote for Clinton, BTW.

But thank you for reminding of us that has absolutely nothing to do with this election. I can think of some rather ugly stats regarding soldiers dying and regarding poverty, illness and death on our own dirt under the direction and encouragement of Repubs in power, but I don't tend to drag it into every argument in a desperate panic.

By the way, did you also post this stat on all the "Look at how McCain/Palin are leading!" previous threads in order to disprove those polls? Just wondering.

Anyway. Once again, to the OP. Thanks for posting this!

More importantly, Obama has some extra states he could win that Bush won in 2004, such as Iowa, New Mexico, and Colorado.

If you can show that I've mentioned this before I'll vote for O and no on the poll.

That's a great stat. Could you post a source for that stat?
