  1. Here's another CNN/Gallup poll also showing a dead heat: President Bush and his Democratic challenger, Sen. John Kerry, are about even among likely and registered voters in the latest CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll, released Sunday. The poll showed Kerry and Bush tied at 49 percent each among likely voters interviewed. Among registered voters Bush had 49 percent and Kerry 47 percent. Independent candidate Ralph Nader was favored by 1 percent in each group. The margin of error in each case was plus or minus 4 percentage points. By contrast, Bush was ahead of Kerry among likely voters 52 percent to 44 percent in the Gallup poll conducted September 24-26. Among registered voters in that poll, the spread was 53 percent for Bush and 42 percent for Kerry. Nader had 3 percent among each group. http://www.cnn.com/2004/ALLPOLITICS/10/03/gallup.poll/index.html :clown:
  2. I feel the same way. Now, if we could just get rid of Nadar, Kerry would have a much better shot. If you notice these poll results, Kerry would jump three points with Nadar out of the race. I'm so angry with Nadar right now I could scream. He could easily cost us the election AGAIN. It's unbelieveable. :angryfire

    Kerry Won the Debate ...

    Uh ... no. How did you get that impression? I don't think Kerry said anything that remotely suggested he would institute the draft. :confused: Health care will be discussed in the other debates. National security was the specific topic of this debate. :clown:
  4. Oct. 2 - With a solid majority of voters concluding that John Kerry outperformed George W. Bush in the first presidential debate on Thursday, the president's lead in the race for the White House has vanished, according to the latest NEWSWEEK poll. In the first national telephone poll using a fresh sample, NEWSWEEK found the race now statistically tied among all registered voters, 47 percent of whom say they would vote for Kerry and 45 percent for George W. Bush in a three-way race. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6159637/site/newsweek/ :clown:

    Kerry Won the Debate ...

    I posted a link to the ENTIRE poll results so that both sides could evaluate both the postives and negatives for their candidate. What's wrong with that? :rolleyes:

    Kerry Won the Debate ...

    Naturally, this right wing columnist fails to mention this part of the Gallup poll ... :rolleyes: "The poll shows that 46% of viewers said they felt more favorable toward Kerry as a result of the debate, while just 13% felt less favorable. By comparison, just 21% of viewers felt more favorable toward Bush, and 17% felt less favorable." http://www.gallup.com/poll/content/?ci=13237 Perhaps it's better to go straight to the source, rather than rely upon any biased right wing (or even left wing) filters. :clown:

    Kerry Won the Debate ...

    Too bad you didn't see the whole thing. Even Rush Limbaugh was making excuses for Bush this morning. I stand by my "extremely weak" comment. The guy looked like a deer in the headlights. Quite frankly, it's embarrassing. :rolleyes:

    Kerry Won the Debate ...

    I just wish Bush could speak in coherent sentences without his eyes blinking every millisecond like some kind of bizarre nervous disorder. He IS the President ... for crying out loud. Is it too much to ask that your President be able to speak coherently and intelligently in public? Quite frankly, I don't think the guy can speak without a script because there's not much intelligence there to begin with. It was obvious he ran out of things to say (which is why he repeated the "hard work" line several times) and really didn't even want to be there. :coollook:

    Kerry Won the Debate ...

    Well, I just watched the news, and at least two polls (including one by ABC News) showed Kerry won the debate. :clown:

    Kerry Won the Debate ...

    I even tuned into the conservative Fox News where they acknowledged that Bush didn't perform very well. Kerry was at least coherent and somewhat authoritative, but Bush was extremely weak. And, I'm sorry ... but what is wrong with Bush's eyes? His eyes kept blinking rapidly like he was a deer in the headlights or something. It was bizarre to watch ... even more uncomfortable than his frequent pauses when he's trying to think of something to say. :rolleyes: Although I guess the real verdict will come in with the polls. :coollook:

    Need advise on quitting smoking!!

    Work in a nursing home. Then ask the doctors and nurses how many people ended up there because of smoking. They'll tell you up to 70-80 percent. They'll also tell you that most of those people didn't quit, or quit when it was way too late. Seeing the damage first hand, rather than in the abstract, really motivated me. :coollook:

    Madonna

    The funny thing is ... we're still talking about her. For better or worse, she still grabs a lot of attention. :lol2:

    Madonna

    Actually, she's from Detroit but, what's the difference. :chuckle I've been a huge fan for years but, she's wearing a bit thin lately. But hell ... she's lasted a lot longer than most. I do think she's in danger of "Michael Jackson Syndrome" ... i.e. becoming a joke. :lol2:

    Outsourcing Jobs

    I do agree that we shouldn't give tax breaks to companies that export jobs. On the other hand, if you cut the tax breaks, and if they decide to keep the jobs here because of that, you're indirectly subsidizing jobs, which isn't always a good thing either. Ultimately it's a vicious cycle and, quite frankly, I don't know what the solution is. People want cheaper services and goods. Companies ship jobs overseas to cut prices and meet that demand. As a result, people then lose more jobs and can't afford to pay higher prices, so they demand even cheaper prices, which ultimately prompts more job loss. All I can say is, thankfully, you can't ship most health care jobs overseas. :coollook:

    Outsourcing Jobs

    Next time you're shopping for a cheaper internet service provider, think about all the companies who have outsourced customer service to India so you could save a few bucks on monthly internet service. Look in the mirror: That's what ultimately drives this. It's no different than Wal-Mart. A ton of American manufacturing jobs have been lost because Wal-Mart can buy cheaper goods overseas to give consumers what they demand ... cheaper prices no matter what. And labor is always your biggest expense. You cut labor costs, you cut prices. Overseas labor is always cheaper. I don't like it, but that's the way it is. It's capitalism. And there's nothing you can do about it. Especially when you, like everybody else, demands cheaper prices. That's the bottom line. :clown:
