Anyone who would believe this poll does not know Wisconsin.
Madison and Milwaukee always vote democrat, and they're the two biggest cities. I've been watching the Eau Claire area and the Appleton/Green Bay/OshKosh area and both seem to have a lot of Obama supporters popping up. Heck, some of the old rednecks down at the local VFW who commonly use the N-word are voting for Obama - they are that fed up!

So... I DO know Wisconsin, and I DO believe this poll. I think it's awesome news!

I'm always fond of the 'leads in the polls' comments people like to make. Howard Dean led in the polls in his nomination run, and lost. Hillary led and lost. Historically it means nothing, democrat or republican.

And numbers can turn dramatically quick.

I can't help but point out that anyone who suggests McCain is just another Bush in the waits is dead wrong. McCain is known by most republicans as being closer to an independent or democrat than anyone else. He was critisized throughout his run for the nomination for not being 'conservative' enough to lead the republicans into the White House.

It's almost comical to me how much MORE republican McCain is in the eyes of democrats now that he's running with the nomination than he ever was in the Senate.

Does anyone remember the debates between McCain and Bush when they were both vying for the republican nomination against Gore? Does anyone watch C-SPAN? McCain has been critical of Bush more than he has ever been with him, and debated Bush vehemently in the debates, nearly accelerating to shouting matches.

In the words of Bill O'Reilly, "Wise up and put down the Kool-Aid."

Well in Wisconsin we actually do want Obama to win. Fed up with the War, want it to end. Fed up with the corruption, and war profiters. Want renewable energy. Like Pickens Plan. Fed up with the supporters of Big Oil. Fed up with deregulation, want Regulation in industry and financial communities. Trickel down economic has not worked. Want to stop the exportation of our jobs. Read some good books lately. You know when you read something that really opens your eyes you want to share it. Well here goes. LAWLESS WORLD by P James....TORTURE TEAMS , by Phillipi James.

Mc Cain voted with Bush 95 percent of the time. Thats not a maverick to me. If you are really honest with yourself you will say he is too old. I think his gaffs lately have been to frequent, i worry about his mental ability. If he had won in 2000 this would have been a different world. Now it is to late for him. I don't watch or respect ORielly.

Oil, you must be a bleeding heart liberal stool pidgeon, yes???. Do you remember what a loser Jimmy Carter was??? Fast forward to 2008, Hussein Obama is the same loser reincarnated in a muslim body.
Here is Obama's plan.
1. Spend 1 trillion in his first year alone, all paid for by people who work hard for their money and have a job, pay their bills and try and make some good in this life.(taxing jsut the rich will nevr pay for this loser's out of control spending policies
2. Make peace with Iran who has called the jewish state of Isreal "a stinking corpse" (WEAK)
3. No plan for immigration (great more illegals draining our weak economy.)
4.Vote yes for late-term abortion (oh, so Obama supports murder, he will burn in he** for this)
5. Socialist healthcare paid for once again with my wallet
6. No energy policy to speak of, no nucelar, no coal, no natural gas, no anything.
His policies are beholden to environmentalist losers like you.
7.Enough said, you liberals are weak, and we will not let you destroy this great nation.

In this forum, nobody has called you a name or insulted you - and yet you're already pulling out the snotty comments. What's the excuse this time, since you can't pull the "they did it first" excuse?

Stay on topic, please. It's adult discussion time. That means no more personal attacks.

John McCain has made significant gains in several battleground states over the past month. He and Barack Obama are now in dead heats, according to recent Post/Quinnipiac/Wall Street Journal polling, in Colorado, Michigan and Minnesota

The Post's Chris Cillizza speculates that the cause of McCain's resurgence could be the recent focus on Iraq and Afghanistan by both campaigns. I'd hazard a guess that it has something to do with voters learning that Obama opposes drilling for oil.

Your post was actually #7, her response was #8 - I guess you just anticipated her insult, so you decided to insult her proactively and then blame her for responding in kind? And that's not even counting your post #2 (ad hominem insults - obfuscators, childish).

As I've said before - stay on topic. I'm trying to focus on the actual topic of this thread, you insist on redirecting it to personal slams.

Here's a topic for discussion:

WI's governor is generally pretty popular. How might that, along with Doyle's stance on issues (which may in some cases match McCain, sometimes Obama), impact the way WI citizens vote?

Bystander, the Iraq bill is ridiculous no doubt.
This war has been paid for on the backs of hard working Americans like me and you. My point continues to be that these radical Muslims are not worth it, they have been responsible for more death, destruction, bloodshed, terror, pain, dismemberment than any other monsters on the earth.
I say we pull out of the whole region and immediately launch about 500 Trident nuclear missile sorties onto the Iran and obilterate them from existence. This will send the exact message we want. These comments will be met with harsh resistance but only by weak-minded people who don't believe in America's resolve and rights to defend herself.

Who's the ignorant one? I am all for a better America, and I don't believe we will get that if McCain is elected into office. Do I think Obama is perfect for the job? No, but I do believe he is better than McCain.
