This is very interesting. According to an LA Times/Bloomberg poll of those who voted early in Florida, McCain leads Obama 49-45% even though more Democrats voted than Republicans:

Democrats are beaming that their party is outperforming the Republicans in early voting, releasing numbers Wednesday that show registrants of their party ahead 54 percent to 30 percent among the 1.4 million voters who have gone to the polls early.
"We're thrilled at the record turnout so far," said Democratic Party of Florida spokesman Eric Jotkoff. "It's a clear indication that Democrats want to elect Barack Obama and Democrats up and down the ballot so that we can start creating good jobs, rebuilding our economy and getting our nation back on track."

But party breakdowns for turnout aren't the same as final tallies, and at least one poll offered a different view for the campaign of Republican John McCain.

A Los Angeles Times/Bloomberg poll gave McCain a 49-45 lead over Democrat Barack Obama among Floridians who have already voted.

And Republicans continued to show a traditional strength, leading 50 percent to the Democrats' 30 percent in the 1.2 million absentee ballots already returned.


Democrats are beaming that more Democrats came out to vote early but it seems many of them aren't voting for the Democrat candidate. Hmmm.

Probably a skewed poll since people registered by Acorn were told not to vote until election day so as not to draw suspicion.

There are potentially some advantages to having Obama in there. I don't trust the guy at all though. You trust him with our national budget after Illinois? OK

You had better hope that Obama wins because their will be violence in the streets in every city.

And he will get us into a "real" war in no time.

Just think about it...if McCain would have been president during the Cuban missle crisis we wouldn't exsist and the planet would be a nuclear ash heap.

Trying to gauge the early voting number from a pool of 637 respondents(which is the LA/Bloomberg poll being referred to, which shows Obama up 50-43 overall) is unspeakably silly. There are no traditional patterns to follow when it comes to judging early voting and being 5 days out from election day.

Late term abortions are not OK. Talk about sick.

Stomping on the 2nd amendment is not OK.

Taxing the shit out of people so you can start a bunch of social programs is not OK.

Mandatory full (poisoning) vaccine schedules for all Americans is not OK.

Legalized discrimination is not OK

I don't need to do this whole list again, you get the point. Maybe when it's all over we can reach some compromises on both sides.

I don't advocate starting violence regardless of who wins the election. I think any one who does certainly doesn't understand civility at all. That said, it is a sad state of affairs when the only candidates we have to vote for are either a Good Ol' Boy from the GOP or someone who has not had any executive experience and will be learning foriegn relations on the job. If these two are the best either party has to offer then America is headed for some very bad times period.
