Obama is way ahead in the Polls, are you concerned that the Republicans may steal the election, like before?

Obama is way ahead in the polls, unless there is some major problem, he has the best chance of winning in 27 days. Is anyone here concerned that the Republicans may be ready to steal the elections by: hiding absentee ballots, rigging the computer voting systems, listing persons who are eligible to vote as felons (like they did in 2004), blogging polling roads, closing down polling stations early, not stocking the polling stations with enough ballots, doing highway road blocks to inspect cars & people from voting, and intimidation?

Do you think this will happen? Or what do you think will happen?

  • Yes, we all know that Republicans never rely on the polling unless it is in their favor and then they proclaim that it is representative of American voters! but, when they are down, of course the polls are wrong; the media is biased; we hear all the same BS.

  • It creeps me out a little sometimes...but I just try to take a deep breath and be realistic. McCain is shooting himself in the foot during this critical time. I don't think he's going to win over any new voters right now.

  • Go look at the Histories. Polls aren't worth crap.

  • Missalisabeth, they might claim it's for "christ's sake" but we already know that to be untrue.

  • Just like I said in your other Question:

    Get your head out of the sand. The Republicans did not steal the election. The people do not elect the President, the Electoral College does and they voted Bush in for the 2nd time. Usually the College goes along with how the people in their state votes, but sometimes they don't. That's just something you are going to have to learn and accept.

  • Who is reporting these polls? The bias media. Who is being polled anyway? Who knows. I don't believe what the media reports, including who they are saying is in the lead. I can see things are already being set up that if your candidate doesn't win you are going to cry foul play. It never ends.
