Well I just took a poll at my local mall and Beezer's avatar is very favored to win this presidential election.
Not by more than 20% because some dont like crying bunnies.
Polls mean absolutely nothing without knowing what the questions are and who you asked them to. Even knowing those two things don't make a poll mean anything.

polls polls polls only as good as the sampling
Jim Geraghty at National Review succinctly sums up the poll's sampling problems: "When Quinnipiac asked its swing state samples, “Did you vote for Barack Obama or John McCain in 2008? Obama enjoys a 13 percentage point margin in Florida and a 15 percentage point margin in Ohio. Of course, in 2008, Obama won Florida by three percentage points and Ohio by 4.6 percentage points. So these are some really heavily Democrat samples."
The bottom line for critics is that the Quinnipiac/NYT/CBS polls assume that Democrats will turn out in larger proportions for Obama than they did in 2008. This, they argue, is hard to imagine given the historic enthusiasm for Obama and the Bush fatigue that suppressed GOP turnout. With the economy lagging, the president should be facing enthusiasm headwinds, which is what recent Gallup polls have found.
ON to the next poll....and the next and the next

As a Canadian, I hope Obama doesn't win this election because it will send another shockwave through the global economy.
And even worse is the thought of how these morons plan on getting out of the hole they dug.
