Mike in CA:

Boy these national polls are all over the place aren't they. Interestingly, the LA Times poll showing McCain leading both Democrats got the most press, and is seeming to be the single outlier. And they say the press has liberal bias???

John - Spokane, WA:


CNN showed Hillary up this morning in their National Poll. Even your own National consensus shows only 3 to 4 points seperating Hillary & Obama - Why did the Pew Poll take the Blog headline ?

C.S.Strowbridge:

Bad news for the Republicans. Losing to both Democrats outside the margin of error. Usually McCain's been ahead of Clinton by a serious margin.

Harris:

I found this interesting and I think you would also.

to Harris are the republicans going to run Against Michel Obama, or Hussein Obama. dud 1000 of people both white and Black and others have written Essays about race and race relations in America.
talking about race in informative academic maner is Ok, but Harris traying to make Obama a Racist would not work because have you see his grandmother or his sister or her chinese husband, have you seen the picture of Obama sitting on the shoulders of his WW2 veteran garndfather. this line of attack would not work, maybe Harris you could find something else to do

Hillary better hope Obama has a thing for under-aged girls and is caught on Dateline's "To Catch a Predator" show.
