Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Just in:

Obama had a small lead in our national tracking for the 3rd night in a row, and a good Romney night Tuesday is rolling off. Results shortly 7 minutes ago

For those of you still worried, consider this: since the convention the only polls to show Romney with any lead in Ohio are right wing hack pollsters WAA, Gravis, ARG, and something called Wenzel Strategies, and none of them could muster more than a phony 1 point lead for Romney.  No legitimate poll, or even semi-legitimate Ras poll show Romney with ANY lead since the conventions.  In Wisconsin, NO pollster whatsoever has found a Romney lead since the conventions.  And finally, no pollster for the ENTIRE election cycle (save something called Dane) has found Romney leading in Nevada.  Think about what that means.  And those three states are the ball game folks.


Barack Obama has pushed his lead in our rolling 3 day tracker up to 49/47 based on interviews from Wednesday to Friday: http://t.co/... 3 minutes ago

Definitely much better than the R+4 from last week.  Looks like Gallup really is on an island now.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).
