Are you surprised by today's Cafemom Poll results?

I am. 37% say they will vote for McCain, 39% for Obama, and the rest were randomly scattered between the "undecided", "won't vote", "write in/third party candidate", and "not eligible to vote" options. I was expecting a bigger lean towards Obama. Anyone else surprised by this?

  • Nope, there are 800+ members that are supporting McCain/Palin that I know of right off the bat. :)

    The media polls aren't accurate. How many people have actually voted in them? I don't know anyone who has. So I'm trying to figure out who's voting in these so called polls.

  • Given the obvious lean toward Obama I was a little surprised but feel the big surprise will come Tuesday.

  • Not surprised at all. The media is so biased, and I'm sure the polls are as well. I can't wait for this election. I have a feeling there are a lot of people who will be voting for the lesser of two evils.

  • Not really, from what I've seen on Cafemom there are a lot of McCain supporters.

  • I'm disappointed but not surprised by the large # of women who will chose not to exercise their right and responsibility to vote in this election.
