cant make a traditionally heavily democrat city vote republican when they've voted 70%+ democratic every election since the creation of the country.
especially when the republicans arent looking good in the media at all, its pretty bad.

Actually, in a truly legitimate election, this sort of thing does happen! If this election in the fall were truly legitimate, you will see a landslide
where lots of traditionally republican votes go towards the democrats. Most republicans polled or that i have personally talked to dont like bush at
The key to rigging an election usually comes down the swing states where its already a close race anyway. And seeing as how there are a number of
polls showing most of these races are something like 49-51%, just a few votes makes a huge difference and will go pretty much unnoticed by the
And, they always have the excuse that, "The pre-election polls are innaccurate and dont reflect how people will actually vote on election day or what

Voter apathy is responsible for all of the evils in the world!
