It is very advisable to examine and dissect the men of science for once, since they for their part are quite accustomed to laying bold hands on everything in the world, even the most venerable things, and taking them to pieces.

He'll do noticably better than Kerry's 33% but enough to carry a CD?

I almost thought it said D+19 on the top of the previous page.  This is no fluke Nebraska will be Republican come November.

Congressional breakdowns? Or does Rasmussen continue to fail?

At +19 it's probably pretty pointless.

And it's worth noting that the trend for Obama in the polling here is decidedly unfavorable.

I think it'd be interesting because Kerry and Gore both did about 15% better in Douglas County than they did statewide.  19% is a *lot* better than either of them and one has to wonder where that improvement is coming from - perhaps disproportionately from the one CD he's advertising in?

Ugh, I was hoping I could catch that and delete it before someone replied.  Damn you.  Tongue

I wonder if this is enough from Obama to carry a CD...probably not, though.

Tradition would suggest he's somewhere under five in that CD, possibly very close if Omaha is sliding towards him relatively higher than the rest of the state, not an unreasonable guess but not necessarily accurate either.

I don't see Obama being able to carry a CD; McCain will probably build on this lead a little bit.

So much for the Cornhuskers pipe-dream... the Republicans are coming home and even Hagel can't save the day, most likely not even in a single CD.

Read Lunar's post.

It's hard to have an intellectual discussion about Obama potentially expanding the electoral map here.  100% of McCain supporters and about 50% of our knowledgeable posters understandably oppose the idea.

My argument is this: Obama's internal polling & advertising apparatus is far more aware than even the wittiest posters here.  I do not like explanations of the macro map without justifications for current spending & organization patterns by people smarter than us.  I mean, throw it away as a bluff or whatever, few articulate why that bluff, in an expert perspective, could be worth millions of dollars.

edit: I just made a far more whiny and arrogant thread about the above-mentioned topic Smiley
