Any poll where Clinton is leading is trashed.

black voters:

Obama 65
Clinton 19

Hispanic voters:

Clinton 50
Obama 29

blacks are allegedly going to comprise 10% of the electorate and Hispanics, 15%.

Can you tell me why this should be the case? It seems to me that Clinton should be considered the odds-on favorite given the Hispanic breakdown.

That's my thinking, but the glee of the Obama people sends them into bizarre little happy dances everytime they see him ahead - then they question polls when shes leading him.

I'm not going to question it. I'm prepared for a loss Saturday... and if we manage to win by a point somehow, I'll be very happy.

What happened to telling me to be optimistic? Tongue

Rumor-

This so-called "poll" is fatally flawed. It was an email poll to the newspapers subscribers. It has zero probability of being correct and statistically incoherent.

But, everyone knows that this method is extremely accurate, as evidenced by the Literary Digest poll of 1936.

Didn't know they had the internet back in 1936.

Thought that Al Gore invented the internet.

Are you telling me that Gore didn't invent the internet?

Even if this poll were accurate, Obama will still win because Edwards will not be viable in many precincts. The caucus rules definitely give Obama an edge. I don't see how Clinton can win in Nevada unless Edwards has a very strong showing at Obama's expense.

Mailed poll (like the Cleveland Dispatch does every year, I think).  Obviously, though, every newspaper subscriber has an address, but I doubt all provide email addresses.  Like every Internet poll, still trends younger and more inaccurate.

Thought that Al Gore invented the internet.

Are you telling me that Gore didn't invent the internet?

Oh, this is a bad Al Gore joke, not an actual point.  Darn.  Tongue

I wonder, will the Edwards campaign give out any explicit instructions to their people on who to caucus for in precincts where he's not viable?

Awww...my favorites (Barack Obama and Ayatollah Huckabee) are both getting killed in this poll!

Hang tight. Stephan Colbert projects an Obama win. He got them all right so far, at least on the democratic side.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

My gut says Nevada is know as the silver state and my gut strongly suggests it enjoys a mostly arid climate.
