when done right, polls are quite useful and accurate.

Maybe, but have you ever watched pre-election daily polling, as they do on CNN and other networks? About a month before the election they "change" the way they do polling to "likely" voters and make some other changes. The poll becomes more volatile and shows how fickle the electorate is. Polls are mainly useful as "barometers" for public opinion, but not necessarily the end product. Candidate X needs a certain number of delegates to win the nomination. With nine candidates and no one higher than 17% right now this game is wide open.

Oh, please.

Gore screwed Gore over. Why should Green party supporters be blamed for his own ineptness to win so much as the state he is from. Lame.

I love Nader, have heard him speak. He is too good of a guy to be a politician. And if he's considering running, my feeling is he figures the Dems are screwed anyway.

The election's still about a year away. Things could change drastically between now and then.

I just know that as of now, I intend on voting for Dean.

Very true. Plus, the "conventional wisdom" claimed that Dean wasn't going to do nearly this well, and the front-runner was "supposed" to be John Kerry. Clearly they underestimated the hell out of Dean. If he is the Democratic nominee, I'll definitely vote for him.

As long as there's a new man in the Oval Office, I'll be satisfied. What happened in the 2000 election was a nightmare, I hope I never feel cheated that badly again.

Please, God, spare me...........I'll scream if the election is a repeat of that nightmare-athon. If they'd given out an award for most burned out voter in the U.S. I might have won. I was so *tired* of politics. I didn't read a newspaper again until 9/11. I didn't even *care* who'd won..........the closest I've ever come to being apathetic. In retrospect it's scary. I almost committed the biggest political sin on earth, apathy. That's why I hate these long-ass two year campaigns.

And najeena, I totally agree. This will be my first time voting for a president, and I'd like to know that the process will not get all chaotic and confusing. I hope this next election runs much more smoothly, too.

Lord willing the same mess better not be repeated. If Bush is re-elected im moving to our fine neighbor British Columbia.
Literally if Bush is re-elected, I will be publically advocating Washington, Oregon, and California, secede from the United States and form our own nation I bet most of the European Union would recognize us instantaneously, just to stick it to the Shrub!
