New voter registration is very heavy. Will these newly registered voters vote? I hope we do have a good turn-out. Apparently Bush lost a decent-sized lead in one televised debate if these numbers are any indication.
Alabamians for Kerry

the race deffinetly has gotten more interesting... but remember back to '84... reagan mondale... reagan looked lost durring the entire debate, and people started talking about how the old man had lost it and he was too old to be president and how he just might lose... he came back durring the next debate, was asked if he thought age would be an issue, and dropped the memorable "i won't hold my opponents youth and inexperience against him" line, rolled through the debate, rolled through the next one, and then rolled to one of the biggest landslide victories we've ever seen.

not to say this will happen for bush... but if he pulls off two good debates, i think the election is locked... if kerry beats him in all three, then bush is certainly in trouble.

I keep seeing this thread title as "GW has lost his head." Lovely mental image though.

Actually, I was thinking that to lose something one must posses it in the first place....

That's what I'm thinking. Just wait til we get to domestic issues.

I totally agree.

Interesting to see so many anti-Bush people finally admit that GW actually had a lead.

I think it will be very interesting to see the voter turnout stats after this. I'm guessing it will be one of, if not the largest turnout ever?

I agree with Dreadsox. I think if you are a non-voter, and for some reason feel the definite need to go out and vote, it is probably more likely that you are doing so (in any election, not just this) because you are against the incumbent. If you are all 'for' and happy with who is there, you are less likely to go out and do something about it.

I think the youth vote is key as well. Getting young people to go out and vote is always a big issue. There's always campaigns to do so, but it seems particularly strong this time. The youth vote = mostly Democrat.

The whole world will be watching on November 2, with their fingers crossed.

Well, I hope the youth vote = mostly democrat, but I have noticed a shocking number of really conservative youth in this country. To me that is vey scary. Then again, Earnie Shavers, y'all have AussieU2fanman!

Heck, yes. A month ago I thought Kerry was absolutely fd. I'm excited that he just has a shot at it. Whatever happens, life goes on.

if the President wins Ohio and Florida--both of which he leads right now--he wins the election. Gore won the majority vote but lost the election.
