    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    The only poll that counts - is the Tuesday following the first Monday in November.

    We should be better off, this guy makes Carter look like a patriot.

    I don't follow the polls. They are all fixed to make obama look like he is ahead. Just like 1980, the Dems are in for a big surprise on November 6th.

    As far as the Michigan polls are concerned: anyone who really thought Romney had a chance here has not looked closely at voter turnout in Detroit over the past 3 or 4 election cycles. Nor have they looked at the way in which the population of metro Grand Rapids/Kent County has gotten somewhat more liberal over the past decade or so. The influence of the Christian Reformed Church in city politics has subsided, and the population is more ethnically diverse than it used to be. The current mayor of Grand Rapids is a liberal democrat and ordained minister in the United Church of Christ.


    Hoekstra ruined any chances he had of beating Stabenow for the Senate when he ran that racist ad during the 2012 Super Bowl, with the asian actress speaking pigeon english. He offended a lot of people with that one. In addition, the same people who put Debbie there will keep her there-a bloc of women, minorities, Dearborn arabs, farmers, and Oakland County voters.

    As far as Romney in national polls-Obama got a clear convention bump, and he probably owes it mostly to Bill Clinton, although Michelle and Obama both gave good speeches also. If Romney can do well in the debates, he's not out of the race. If he continues to talk about things that he likes in Obamacare, he will lose support because he is not differentiating his proposed policies from those of Obama.

    We have about five days to get these numbers up, we can spin these numbers all we want but the fact remains it is very RARE to win an election if you don't have the lead in mid September.

    If that is the case, obama will be the first person since WWII to get re-elected with an unemployment rate over 7%. The man is full of firsts. And it amazes how there are so much stupid out here that listen to, and believe, him.

    Until these polling companies figure out that they are going to have to change their methods, perhaps even get off their collective asses and hit the streets for a random sample, then I see these polls as growing ever more insignificant.

    You cannot get accurate results from telephone calls. We all have caller ID now, and no one I know answers "unknown caller" or "private caller" or blind numbers.

    A large segment of the population no longer have landline phones in their homes.

    A huge percentage of the population is sick to death of telemarketing calls for any reason be they commercial, charity, pseudo-charity, or political... and simply hangs up as soon as the other person asks for "Mister (surname mispronounced)".
