Are the voters of the United States of America going to allow themselves to be manipulated by netroots trolls, Obama-mania, the major media and "prevailing opinion?"
First the facts:
- The race for President is actually too close to call
- Millions of new registrations have been submitted to vote, but they are untested voters who may or may not even show up at the polls.
- When polling registered voters Obama tends to lead by a larger amount than when polling "likely" voters.
- No one won the debates, I can't even say the debates were all that interesting
But, with all this said, the television media is reporting that Obama is running away with the election. How?
For an interesting read, that will turn your stomach, read Sack/Smurf/Freepfest on Daily Kos and see how the left is manipulating the American voting public. It's working by the way. So I return to my original question: Are voters going to allow themselves to be that easily tricked and told what to do?
I'm afraid the answer is yes. When the media tells the average voter that Obama would handle the economy better, they believe. When the media tells the average voter that Obama would help them get a job, make more money, get free healthcare, or a whole host of goodies, they believe. I'm just a bit frustrated today with Americans. When a couple hundred bloggers can sack the online polls, twist the issues, and manipulate the voting public .. what have we become but lazy and irresponsible democracy.

Thanks to all of you who commented.
Although it's scarry right now, I feel pretty good that the race is tightening and Americans aren't prepared to be told who to vote for by the media.
