Okay... you gotta click the link.  I'm not clever enough to post the rest of the image.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

I think we all know the media is doing all it can to help Obama, and there is a lot of really stupid bots voting for him, but let's face it... EVERYTHING rides on the debates!

I listened to Republican pollster Whit Ayres on Journal Report this morning, he said it is a tied race, but Obama is probably 2 points ahead if at all... that there has been no real movement all summer in the numbers overall (when averaged out)... 

What bothers me is Romney keeps running a "safe" campaign, much as he did in the primaries until he got his butt kicked in South Carolina and then decided to FIGHT like hell in Florida (and win)..  he is running that same "safe" campaign in the general election only there is no get mad and fight like hell like he had in the primaries... and once more he isn't campaigning this weekend, instead he is in California trying to raise money while Obama is campaigning in Wisconsin this weekend... even Paul Ryan doesn't seem to have any weekend campaign events planned.

If I understand it correctly all unskewed does is report the raw poll data before any skewing of the numbers takes place.

This is the kind of data a candidate will see in his internal polling and if any skewing takes place he or she will do it themselves!

"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?
