Granted, this is a non-scientific poll. Granted these are AOL users. But 535-3?
That just doesn’t make sense. The only votes Kerry got were from AOL users in D.C. Check it out here. Here’s a screenshot:
My attempts to dismiss this poll as representing AOL users didn’t work, as according to the National Business Review:
An informal straw poll of AOL members has also taken a startling turn for the incumbent.
After months of showing Senator Kerry well ahead, in recent days the poll has shown George W Bush out in front — in all states. Only Washington, DC, with three electoral votes, is currently in the Kerry camp, according to AOL.
That would translate into a national landslide for the incumbent, handing him 535 of the country’s 538 electoral votes.
There’s not enough spin in a Texas tornado to make those numbers look good.
love it, hate it, there’s more of it at pacetown.
