    Too bad older white people elect the Presidents in this country.

    Deal with it.
    Bush got around 20% of the Hispanic vote. McCain has 30%. A 50% increase and it will probably grow to 40per cent cause Hispanic's do not like blacks. I have worked with enough blacks to know the feeling is mutual.

    Bush got approximately 35% of the Hispanic vote vs Gore and 44% vs Kerry. Seems Eyelids isn't the only one who makes up numbers.

    If you remember, Kerry led Bush, Gore led Bush, Dukakis led Bush Sr, Mondale led Reagan and Carter led Reagan, I point this out for two reasons:

    First, Clinton was not included since there were three candidates for President in 1992 and 1996, and Clinton was selected as a minority president based on actual votes cast.

    Second, it shows the actual media bias in polling numbers, Dukakis with an 18 point lead coming out of convention and not being able to close the deal? Same with Kerry, Mondale, Gore and Carter, they had erectile convention disfunction, they had presumed rock hard leads over oppenents coming out of conventions and watched their sizable leads shrink in the face of actual performance.

    Is Obama firm enough in his support to win an election as a frontrunner?

    This country's been led by rich white men for over 200 yrs. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

    Too bad statistical models can't vote.

    McCain is now viewed favorably by 56% of voters, Obama by 54%. Obama receives unfavorable reviews from 44% of voters while McCain is viewed unfavorably by 41%. McCain earns favorable ratings from 32% of Democrats while Obama is viewed favorably by 22% of Republicans. Among unaffiliated voters, McCain is viewed favorably by 58%, Obama by 54%.http://rasmussenreports.com/public_c..._tracking_poll
    Thank God the Electoral College saved us from Gore.
    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.
