    THIS is what you care about? Whether Nate says odds are 66% or 60% or 72%?

    Ha ha ha! Glad we got our priorities straight.

      You're not getting any points for integrity among the Villagers by releasing a poll that will energize right wingers and demoralize Dems just as all the other pollsters are beginning to crap on their parade.

      You'd hardly be the first or the last partisan to sit on poll data they didn't like. Because most of them know how the narrative effects enthusiasm and voting intentions.

        If kos held a poll because it was "bad", I'd lose respect for this site. We're a reality based community and the reality is what it is.

          Based on the polls this week, the PPP poll does not show reality. It would paint an exaggerated negative picture that would help the GOP.

          I thought this site was about electing Democrats, not being moral and "above the fray" of politics, like Obama pretended to be in the last debate. Would you expect Karl Rove or Rasmussen to release a poll showing Obama ahead right now? No.

        There are more important things at work here than truth, integrity, or doing the right thing over an internal poll. For the love of God, can we please act like the people we're trying to beat now and then.

        If they win this election, they're going to be potentially filling federal and supreme court seats for the next eight years, which will have an impact on the basic civil rights of millions of Americans. The outcomes to me are more important than the means, especially when the means don't mean anything. I know that sounds awful, but sometimes the medicine is worse than the poison.  Just becomes we think we're better than those goes doesn't mean we have to make a suicide pact over our principles, which won't be honored if we lose this election.

        Didn't we lose enough when Bush won in 2000, in large part because of a bunch of intellectually pure, holier than thou morons who voted for Ralph Nader?
