    Zero mention in either wingnut site.

    IMO the Repugs claim the polls are biased because they plan to perpetrate massive voting machine fraud (Ohio?  Florida? Pennsylvania?) and if they accepted the poll numbers now it would be difficult to explain such a massive voter preference on election day.

    Hope I am wrong.

      Tons of stuff about Obama, but it's hard lately to even find Romney's name on their site.  I guess they think that Romney can't win either, but "not obama" has a chance.

      I hate hate. I love the look in peoples eyes when they realize, for the first time, that they have power.

      •  I read redstate every few days (6+ / 0-)

        the most astonishing thing is how little content there is these days.

        They have changed website design recently, and perhaps backend software as well, and it's remarkable how little their front page changes over the course of a week.

        Here, the front page is updated at least a dozen times a day, the reclist churns, and thousands of comments are posted.

        There, and this is a relatively recent phenomenon, their frontpage has been basically the same for over a week, apparently zero new content.

        They have no audience.  The fact that Eric is a paid contributor to CNN is a complete farce.

      •  The only people I know who will talk about Mitt (2+ / 0-)

        Romney are Democrats and independents. Republicans act like he doesn't exist.

        When you don't vote, Mitt happens.

    •  Freeperville does mention polls.... (2+ / 0-)

      I read Freeperville a LOT. And they do mention polling data. They love Ras, except when it points to a Obama lead, then they come up w/ an excuse....like it's just the usual noise from weekend polling.

      The also currently really LOVE  www.unskewedpolls.com as that site has laid out some BS "data" to show that Romney is up by a lot. It's actually LOL funny.

      And if someone even links to an article about a poll that doesn't show Romney leading, then suddenly that person is pounced on as being in the bag for Obama.

      I have to admit the Freeperville certainty of Ras' polling (showing R ahead) does give me pause from time to time. I mean what if they're right?

      Nah! Freepers are seldom right about anything.
