I keep hearing how Bush is ahead in the polls nationwide, he's ahead in this state and that state. Hell, CNN even has an article claiming he leads the polls in electoral college votes. What the f#&k is that about?
Polls are much more than mildly annoying, they are potentially very damaging to the electoral process. I really believe that, as sad as it sounds, people like to vote for a winner. Spend six or eight weeks telling them that Bush is going to win and they will vote for him. Or worse yet, they'll stay home thinking their vote won't make the difference.
We (meaning Kerry supporters) can't let polling numbers, which are dubious at best, discourage us. The bottom line is this: there are millions in America who's political outlook is aligned with John Kerry. Our job is to get out there and convince 'em to vote for Kerry in November.
It's been said many times, but it's worth repeating, this is the most important election of our lives. It is difficult to imagine the damage the Bush administration can do if we give them four more years. Our country is at a major crossroads and it's time for a regime change in Washington.
So, write your newspaper, call your friends, talk to your neighbors, ask every single person you meet who says they are voting for Bush to tell you why - whatever you can do to get people thinking because if they really think about their vote, their gonna vote for John Kerry.
This election is NOT over!
