For a mere $9 more your license plate can be framed:


The bumper stickers were about $2.50, IIRC.  This, however, is an example of applied intelligence.

I was trying to make a subtle jab saying that anyone can buy these stickers Smiley

I think they require a membership number and the license plate frames fade.  They also don't serve as an example of implied intelligence.

So far, my close prediction of PA seems to be coming true.

Guess we won't get a test of whether "Traditional" or "Expanded" is a superior model, then.

Still picking up more voters in "Traditional", too (barely).

Also worth noting: Gallup is forecasting turnout at 64% of VAP, the highest since 1908 (!).

Well, one can hope. What would that be, 145 million or so?

I'm not sure (fixed the post, by the way, would be highest since 1908, not 1956). I'm also not sure if it's VAP or a colloquial usage of the term "voting-age population" to refer to VEP (voting-eligible population, i.e. only legal residents and non-felons plus citizens abroad), which is generally more precise in the modern era. But VEP and VAP converge once you get back to the 1980s or so, so it would still be the highest turnout in terms of VAP/VEP since 1908.

I'm not getting into the fight but there is no way to tell a person's intelligence based on things like predictions or internet posts.

From Gallup:

"While only 4% of voters remain undecided in Gallup's unallocated likely voter model, the final poll estimates that a slightly larger 10% of likely voters still have the potential to either change their mind or make up their mind. Even if McCain converts the vast majority of swing voters, victory for him would be highly unlikely since 51% of likely voters say they are certain to vote for Obama compared with 39% who say they are sure they will vote for McCain."

Aaron is pissed:

She was like "How did you get my number?  I don't handle this issue.  You have to call the South Bryant Campus for that.  I'll transfer you, but I don't handle it."  She said it in a slightly condescending tone.  I didn't tell her that Grumps gave me the number.  I just told her I looked it up.
