Election 2012: Your stories
I find the elections very interesting, especially all of the various poll numbers and/or ratings that we are seeing.
I am not totally set for Democrat or Republican, I usually vote on what issues that concern me and if I believe the candidate will really make an impact in those areas, then that is who I will vote for.
However, I am all about reality. Therefore, I have struggled with the various poll ratings, and cannot see how this is a close race, with 98% African Americans leaning toward President Obama and 95% Hispanics leaning toward President Obama, not to mention a huge percentage of women leaning toward him.
How can the polls show a narrow margin between the two... somebody is "polling-my- leg” on this one. It doesn't add up. There is no way that Romey can be very close in this race. Even if they are making random calls to people and basing their numbers from those calls; they still must pull in those percentages to give an accurate account; knowing the percentages of the above 3 groups already makes it unlikely that this race is a close one. Of course we know that in statistics you really can make the numbers read what you want. Quite interesting, but I think someone is "Polling-my-leg."
