    What fans? All the polls are based on who answers the phones in the middle of the day at home. Which is mostly liberal wellfare dynasties.

    Keep telling yourself that. What will be your excuse on November 7?

    Contrary to what the media and some of Obama’s most die-hard sycophants want people to think, Obama’s antics and mistakes are getting to be so egregious that even people who were once opposed to Romney (like some Evangelicals) are now willing to cast their votes for him.

    In fact, the latest fiasco in Libya – wherein Obama kept blaming the movie even after the evidence concluded the attacks had been pre-planned well in advance – has cost him an astounding amount of credibility.

    Wow, that’s just fictional.
    Try looking at this site: www.fivethirtyeight.com. It is done by a statistician — a baseball statistician, too, actually! — who analyzes ALL the major polls and many of the local ones. In 2008, he called it for Obama back in March, accurately predicted all the Senate races, and nailed 49 of 50 states on the popular vote. It’s an education on how polls are done, as well as a good metapoll.
    You may reject it out of hand when you see his current prediction and odds, but I suggest you look anyway.

    Biased polls will always show bias. Even the Obama campaign is admitting that Obama will probably lose the debate and are adjusting their stragegy.

    I’m sick and tired of polls. Wait till the election. In the meantime, please, Obama supporters, don’t get overconfident.

    Did you get the Mouse ears when you visited Fantasyland?

    Shouldn’t you be hiding under bridge, waiting for a billy-goat or something?

    Ain’t it funny, watching the same folks who were crowing from the rooftops whem Mitt was ahead, suddenly deciding that ‘polls don’t matter.’

    I concur, Donald. Hardly among Steve Benson’s finest moments in pencilling.
     
    However, re the toon itself: As the Packers discovered Sunday night, just because the replacement refs were incompetent doesn’t guarantee that the regular guys WON’T be.

    You are wrong. The President (as Commander-in-Chief) can send troops anywhere without Congress’ approval. He just has to notify Congress with 48 hours of the action (which Obama did) and he has 90 days before Congress has to be further included. Congress’ power is to declare war. Would you like to guess when was the last time war has officially been declared by Congress?

    Keith Russell- both candidates are downplaying themselves as debaters, and magnifying the abilities of their opponent. It’s common practice to stack the deck by inflating your opponents skill, thereby setting a high bar for successful debating.

    Darren Blair- Care to cite some of Obama’s egregious mistakes? How many evangelicals do you think were NOT going to vote for Romney in the first place? Do you think that the polls are lying, and that Obama is not ahead in virtually every battleground state? Even Fox News poll has Obama ahead by +5 points nationally.
