    [QUOTE=TurtleDude;1059038976]That is rather stupid and without proof. Do you realize that hs dropouts, as a group, have favored the dems in the last 10+ national elections? In fact the educational cohort most likely to vote dem are HS dropouts.[/QUOTE]

    That is rather stupid and without proof.

    Re: Obama: Republicans Counting On Blacks Staying Home

    Why does Obama make every issue a racial issue?

    stick with what you're good at. it's all he knows.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    When has Palin made racial comments? She would be crucified by the left wing media if she did...........

    Obama thinks republicans hope blacks, union workers, and young people stay home.

    This just in, republicans think Democrats hope old people, buisness owners, and christian people stay home.

    Now, can we get past Obama wasting time playing Captain Obvious in hopes of stirring up his base and worrying more about dealing with election results and campaigning then doing his damn job and get back to actual worth while issues?

    That would be rather funny of you to say, since an examination of the polls, donations, and party support for the McCain ticket prior to Palin joining and post Palin joining would show quite the opposite effect would happen. Why would you have said something that would make absolutely no sense to anyone that was actually knowledgable about elections? That just seems weird.

    i think palin drove independents away in packs, despite her popularity with the right wing religious voters.

    McCain was polling poorly, and arguably horribly compared to his previous runs at the Presidency, with Independents even before Palin joined. The affect Palin had on independents is likely less than many attempt to make it out to be because Obama was already solidly in control of the independent vote PRIOR to Palin coming on. Going from "I don't mind McCain, but I'm voting for Obama" to "I don't like McCain because of Palin, and I'm voting for Obama" in the end doesn't really change anything.

    However McCain was doing poorly as well with his own party, with donations being relatively low compared to post Palin, party excitement which in elections tends to relate to turnout was extremely poor pre palin compared to post palin. It also simply gave him a generalized bump, helping to account for the first lead he had in the polls since early in the election.

    Sarah Palin for the most part turned off moderates who were likely to vote for Obama anyways while spurred increased donations and turnout from those in his base who were likely to sit out or vote 3rd party.

    If Mccain was somehow polling wonderful with Independents prior to the picking of Palin I'd say you have a bit of a point, but Obama was relatively solid with the Independent vote prior to the pick of Palin.
