  •  My fear about undecideds... (0+ / 0-)

    My fear with "undecided" voters at this point is that they have decided to vote for McCain but won't admit it because they have no valid reason to vote for him other than he is .......... old...........erratic..............white.  I generally like to have a positive view of my fellow man but the last few days has not led me in that direction.

    •  No one is asked why they are voting for the guy (0+ / 0-)

      and if they did you could just respond 'because he's a war hero'.  Or I'm a Republican. Or I've always admired him.

      That's why I don't believe in the Bradley effect.  You don't have to justify your decision to pollsters.

      We're all one heartbeat away from Forever.

      •  another reason not to believe in the Bradley (0+ / 0-)

        Effect is to look at the final polling numbers vs actual results in the Hillary / Barack primary. On average Obama did about 3% better than the polls were suggesting. So we may end up with a Yeldarb Effect in reality.
