fun post -- who's really gonna win
 
who cares about polls! So based on the trivial stuff, who is going to win?

Weekly Reader -- as someone mentioned in an earlier thread, Weekly Readers have been right since 1950something. The kids there, who are too young to legally vote, voted for Bush.

Family Circle -- cookie contest. The winner here has never lost an election. Laura Bush's cookie recipe beat Theresa Heinz Kerry.

Height -- tall candidates beat the short ones usually [although Bush beat a taller Gore in 2000]

Halloween masks -- since 1980, better selling mask wins the election. Bush is outselling Kerry 55% to 45% [although that's probably because Bush is scary]

bush will retain residency at 1600 Penn. Ave.

So the Family Circle cookie contest has never been wrong huh?
So that means Hillary Clinton's recipe beat Barbara Bush's and Elizabeth Dole's cookie recipes. I just find that humorous. Trying to picture Hillary in the kitchen baking.:huh:

I think this is conclusive.

Gore really won in 2000.!!

Deep,
Why do you think Bush will win?
Just curious.

I don't like Bush at all, but there's no point in kidding myself. I think he'll get the second term.

His team is too smart to lose this election when they have many ways to manipulate it.

And a bunch of little kids are never wrong.

Isn't there some theory about if the Redskins lose the homegame, the incumbent loses? ???

:D

Delaware has picked the winner of at least the popular vote in every presidential election since 1948. They are going for Kerry.

diamond 10-27-2004 01:12 PM

i really kinda think kerry may still win.:hmm:

kerry was the only candidate from the left who i think was formidable-sp against bush.

i told many of my liberal friends here (during the primaries) that i was always concerned about kerry.:)
i wanted dean to win it.:sexywink: but he imploded.

kerry is also known to be a strong closer.

so let's wait and see...

My boss told me about a month ago that last spring he predicted the Red Sox winning the World Series - and Kerry winning the Presidency. Two weeks ago, after the 3rd Yankee win - I thought his predictions were going to prove wrong.

Right now, I'd say Bush has the upper hand. The key right now seems to be Ohio and Florida--Bush taking both would probably give him the election and he's ahead in those states right now. Also, traditional democratic strongholds like Minnesota(my home state), Iowa and Wisconsin are up in the air and could go either way. Also, I just saw today that the traditionally democratic states of Hawaii, New Jersey and Michigan have begun to shift to be totally up for grabs by either candidate. So right now I'd say Bush looks like he'll win. But, as we all know, there could always be an october suprise that could shift the election either way.

there's also that british thing that predicts kerry will win because he has more royal heritage or something.

and the redskins game: when they play green bay if green bay wins the challenger wins, if the redskins win the incumbant wins. this will be the 1 time i pull against washington.

sharky 10-27-2004 03:34 PM

right. if the Redskins win the last home game before the election, the incumbent wins. ESPN puts the odds for the game at even. so it's close -- just like the election!

oh, and the Conference Board's consumer confidence fell to 92 today. No incumbent has won when the index is below 99 in October.
