So you really couldn't compare this board to the voters identifying themselves more as democrat like the polls suggest?
I'm confused that the "Teanderthals" you are referencing are a majority on here, but as the pollsters provide evidence that's not the case on the streets.
I'm trying to find correlation between the national poll numbers and a "poll" on here.
I'm sorry I'm not explaining myself as clearly. Ok. On the news and on these boards, I see that conservatives are saying the liberal media skews poll numbers to their advantage. That's fine and dandy. On the other hand, their defense is that voters on the street are "identifying" themselves more democratic than conservative with a higher number claiming independent.
I was hoping to find some relation on here to that, just for fun.
So, if the conservatives are identifying themselves so aggressively on here, wouldn't they do the same on the streets?
Maybe it's comparing apples to oranges, but I thought it would be interesting to know.
And btw, I identify myself as independent.
Thanks!
I understand your plight and you explained it eloquently. Here’s my assessment:

As Romney continues to fall and Obama to rise in polls, extremist right wing media tend to minimize that reality in their reporting (sometimes even report the reverse to be true) and rationalize that Obama’s rise is a result of sampling skewed toward Democrats. Critics, however, say that the sampling is not skewed, but accurately reflects the number of people no longer willing to be identified as Republican.

I believe that the right wing extremists on this board, at least on this topic, distinguish themselves by assigning high numbers of negative ratings to posts by progressives, who themselves rarely assign negative or positive ratings to other people’s posts. While negative ratings provide no thoughts with which to argue, they at least let you know which posts (or posters) are popular.

I suspect that there are about the same number of conservative and progressive posters here, but I’ve not Ben keeping count either. Some posters are so bizarre that it is nearly impossible to know what they are saying or where they stand politically.

You're a lying sack of sh*t. I've never said I think that.

On the other hand, you're deeply up the azz of the party that wants to reward their supporters with gifts from the "rich" man's pocket.

They see the Romney campaign going down the tubes so its nothing to lose time for these morons. They believe this junior high drivel actually has a place in political discourse.

blah blah gibberish red diaper baby blah

Did you call fred a dago? fred thinks that's racist!

Dago

Originally used to describe Spanish sailors in the 18th and 19th century by the British navy, it is now a derogatory term used in the US to refer to Italians or Italian Americans, especially those recently immigrated and not yet assimilated to American culture. Still refers to Spanish or Hispanic people in current British English. Not commonly used anymore, mostly seen in early 20th century literature.
