Concede.... are you mad?! Lol. Seriously though, the Polls mean very little, and increasingly they are appearing more as Election Manipulators, as
opposed to Election Reporters. How many times have the Exit Polls (which are taken at the Polling Centers ON Election Day) even been dead wrong?
However, if you wish to go by Polls, look at it this way. In the 2008 Primary Race in New Hampshire, Senator Clinton was trailing Senator Obama by 13
Points (in that State) only ONE WEEK before the Vote there. What were the actual results? Senator Clinton took that state by 40%, whereas Senator
Obama received around 35% of the Votes. Then when John Edwards and Governor Richardson soon dropped out thereafter, Senator Clinton began taking
States by 2/3 of the Vote.
Bottom line, if you allow Polls to affect your vote, or lack of Vote, then you lose your right to complain if the "opposition" wins.
BTW, again, if you wish to use Polls, Senator Obama's "lead" dropped from 11 Points to 7 Points after the Ayers "issue" began coming out.
Rasmussen has the difference at only 5 Points as of now. Counting the Margin of Error, these two Candidates (according to these Polls) could possibly
be within 3-4 Points of eachother. That is a CLOSE RACE by any standards. President Bush was behind Al Gore 5 Points in the Polls leading right up to
his Victory. President Reagan was behind 10 Points according to the Polls back then, yet he hammered his opponents twice in landslides.
Have Hope, Ye Of Lil' Faith.
